From US to New Zealand: The far right's global reach

In this episode of the Take, a Christchurch shooting survivor shares his story, and a former neo-Nazi explains his past.

    Last week, a gunman opened fire at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing at least 50 people.

    Prior to the shooting, he published a manifesto espousing some of the same ideas that have driven white nationalist and other right-wing violence in the United States and beyond.

    In this week's episode of The Take, Imtiaz Tyab speaks with AJ+'s Imaeyen Ibanga about the documentary series she produced for AJ+ about the far-right movement in the US. We hear an interview with a former neo-Nazi, and an eyewitness account from a survivor of the shooting at the Linwood Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand.
