Bray is an Associated Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth's Gender Research Institute. He is a historian of human rights, terrorism, and political radicalism in Modern Europe and was one of the organizers of Occupy Wall Street.
He spent most of the evening discussing the history of the Antifa movement in battling fascism and read a chapter from his book on the development of the Antifa movement in London by two Jews who attacked fascist speakers by knocking down their podiums and by creating scuffles with those who had stopped to listen to the fascists. He seemed to suggest that violence against fascist speakers was justified.
And although, he mostly discussed the Antifa movement as countering fascists, during the question and answer period, he did make clear that "Antifa is more than an anti-fascist movement, It is anti-capitalist."
