As the old saying goes, “cops and the Klan go hand-in-hand.” The longstanding and cosy relationship between police forces and white supremacist gangs has been well-documented. So it should surprise no one that when bigoted troll Mike Cernovich held a publicity stunt in NYC, the cops were there to fuck with protestors.
And fuck with protestors they did! One of our friends, J, stood up to defend his community against the genocidal scum that crawled out from under their rocks for this event, only to wind up with a broken leg and a list of fabricated charges against him, all courtesy of the NYPD. This has left J with a looming mountain of medical & legal bills all while his broken leg prevents him from paying his usual bills by working his regular job.
J’s friends reached out to us for some help paying his rent and keeping food on his table while he recovers from his injuries and we were happy to oblige. The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund was established to help out antifa and anti–racists when they run into trouble because they took a stand against hate and this was a textbook example of why we do what we do.
The only reason we were there for J was because of the generous donations from people just like you. The Defence Fund is 100% funded by donations, so if you want us to keep doing what we do, please make a donation to the Defence Fund today!
