In August 2013, Action Antifasciste Marseille successfully mobilized to disrupt a National Front meeting organized by racist politician Stephanne Ravier. While the action was successful, police arrested three antifascists.
Nearly three years after this and M., one of the three arrested antifascists, continues to face persecution by the state for his actions defending his city from bigots. Currently, M. is obligated to pay a court fine of €1726.
The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund stands in solidarity with antifa like M. and has decided to send a contribution to help pay the fine. Action Antifascist Marseille have set up a crowdfunding page where you can donate directly to M. as well.
