March 2016 – Quarterly Report

Nine months ago, we launched The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund to show real solidarity and provide real support to anti-fascists and anti-racists around the world, whenever they found themselves in need of some help to continue the fight against hate. Since that time, the Defence Fund has helped out 29 anti-fascists and anti-racists in Australia, Belarus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the U.S.

In December, the Defence Fund helped out the infamous Pegida banner snatch squad in Germany, whose feat shall live forever in memed glory!

In January, we contributed to the support fund for D&K, two London-based anti-fascists locked up for the “crime” of defending themselves and their communities against neo-nazis.

In February, we made a donation to the Klinika centre in Prague after their building was firebombed by a masked mob of racists, whose cowardly attack also resulted in volunteers at the centre being treated for smoke inhalation and, in one case, a head injury.

Since we launched, antifa have been calling on the Defence Fund at least once a month for assistance and support.  Click here to find out about the twenty-four other anti-fascists and anti-racists we supported between June and December 2015.

If you believe in the work that we do providing aid, solidarity, and support to people in all corners of the globe who are fighting bigotry, please donate to the Defence Fund. Supporters can now make regular monthly contributions of any amount automatically by signing up here.  This is the best possible way to support the Fund and the anti-fascists and anti-racists it provides much-needed material aid to.  Of course, we are also happy to accept one-time donations via our paypal account.  Any individual or group that donates an amount greater than $20U.S./€20/£15 will be invited to join the growing crew of people all over the world that make the decisions about how The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund is used.

The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund is proud to have received endorsements from  The Torch Anti-Fascist Network (U.S.) and Föreningen Fånggruppen (Sweden).
