TWP goons on campus @ Colorado State University, February 2, 2018
When a steaming pile of rotting shit like Charlie Kirk puts on a suit and goes to impose his bile on a group of people at a public event, you can be sure that fascist insects like the Traditional Workers Party will be attracted by his stench. Such was the case at Colorado State University on February 2nd, when they came armed with clubs, poles, and shields, shouting popular nazi slogans of today and yesterday like “Blood and soil” and “Jews will not replace us.” Hard to pretend to not be a nazi when your biggest fanboys are nazis, huh Charlie?
The good news is Colorado antifa were pretty successful escorting them off-campus. The bad news is one Colorado antifa got bonked on the head with flashlight and had to get stitched up in ER, which resulted in a clean bill of health and a $2400 medical bill.
We’re not about to let someone literally risk their life to defend their campus from an invasion of nazi edgelords without backing them up. So when a crowdfunder kicked off to help pay off the medical bill in question, we were more than happy to pitch in to help pay that off. As of this writing, they’re $300 away from making it just a bad memory, so you should feel free to kick in, too. If you want to make sure that any anti-fascist anywhere in a similar situation is supported, you should really kick in to The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund!
Seattle defends itself against Islamophobia: June 10, 2017
When America’s largest Islamophobic group comes to your town, what do you do? If you’re the good people of Seattle, you confront them. Unfortunately, you’ll find that no matter how much cooperation or communication you have with the police to explain your peaceful intentions in doing so, the Seattle Police Department will still let a dozen or so of the most virulent Islamophobes rush your crowd to assault people. Several times, even.
Seeing that the police were literally allowing members of various hate groups (Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer, etc.) rush in and assault people with impunity, some people were forced to defend themselves. That, of course, is when the SPD decided to aggressively step in. Not to stop the attackers, mind you – but to beat & arrest the people trying to defend themselves & others!
Calls for the SPD to account for their actions received no response. But four anti-fascist protestors – the same ones brutalized by the cops, still face various charges.
The Greater Seattle IWW Genereal Defense Committee set up a crowdfunder to take care of the costs these four heroes now face to legally defend themselves against this utter nonsense. The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund was more than happy to ensure that the crowdfunder met its target amount.
