Backing Benji

On April 18th, 2017, Richard Spencer, a prominent white nationalist leaderlittle rich boy human punching bag of the “Alt-Right,” gave a talk at Auburn University in Alabama and was protested by students and anti-racists.

Two anti-racists were arrested outside Foy Hall on campus, following an altercation which began when a League of the South LOSer (a secessionist/white nationalist organization) launched an attack.  Benji, a musican and active member of the Birmingham arts community, was one of them and now has court and legal expenses to look forward to.

Using The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund‘s resources to help Benji deal with those expenses was a no-brainer.  The only real concern we had was whether or not the crowdfunding page set up to support Benji was legit, but we were soon able to confirm that with the help of Atlanta Antifascists (thanks!).  We encourage all antifascists to stand with Benji and donate to Benji’s legal defence (as well as, um, you know, The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund!).
