India’s Hindu right won a massive victory after the worst sectarian violence since its Independence. In France, Jean-Marie Le Pen, leader of the National Front, rode a wave of right-wing extremism in the last year’s presidential elections. And racism against Somali immigrants rocks a small mill town in Maine. On this edition of Making Contact, we take a look at the Right-Wing movements around the world.
