In some cases these populist movements are also fueling extremist violence against immigrants. In Greece refugee centers have been firebombed. Brexit has emboldened white supremacists in the UK. Finland is forcing many Muslim migrants to return back to the Middle East where they face violence and persecution. But there’s also active resistance to this populism – in courtrooms and on the streets.
