Demobilising far-right demonstration campaigns: Coercive counter-mobilisation, state social control, and the demobilisation of the Hess Gedenmarksch campaign

Written by Michael C. Zeller 11 January 2021

This article examines extremism and polarization by looking at a “demonstration campaign demobilisation” that shows how “anti-far-right activists effectively engaged in a sort of kamikaze counter-mobilisation, seeking to shut down far-right events” that “spurred state authorities to act, imposing coercive measures that demobilised the far-right campaign” (Michael C. Zeller (2021)”.
