If there’s one thing bigots like, it’s a wall. A great big barrier separating people. Because nothing solves problems like separating people, right? But it turns out that sometimes antifascists like walls too. For example, the wall that Lyon antifascistes built overnight in the doorway of a Social Bastion fascist clubhouse in their city.
We’re not even joking. A small band of antifascistes + some cinder blocks + some mortar and the fash bricks-and-mortar site was shut the fuck down. Now unfortunately le flic seem to believe that there’s some sort of law against renovations to improve le quartier like that, and some Lyon antifascistes are up on charges as a result. To make matters worse, the cops seized every single piece of literature or fund-raising materials they could get their hands on. Both of these actions leave Groupe antifascistes Lyon et Environs in a tight spot. They’ve set up a crowdfunder to help raise the money needed to cover the replacement costs of the seized materials + to defend the accused antifa and The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund was proud to make a contribution to it.
If you’d like to help out the geniuses behind what will likely be the Antifa Action of the Year, please make a donation to their crowdfunder. If you’d like The IAFDF to be ready the next time antifascistes anywhere get creative, make a contribution to it today! Meanwhile, let’s enjoy another photo of our friends’ handiwork, shall we?
