Like moths to a flame, Canadian fascists can’t seem to resist holding rallies at the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa. Maybe it’s the proximity to beaver tails or maybe it’s the overarching willingness of different levels of police there to act as the personal armed thugs of white supremacist soldier cosplayers who want Canada to ban immigrants. If you’ve been following our activities over the last couple of years it won’t come as any suprise that the kkkops went ham on the anti-fascist protestors, turning a blind eye to anything their white supremacist boot-licking pals were doing in favor of shooting rubber bullets and pepper spray at the anti-fascists before assaulting them.
In the end, the pigs arrested at least nine anti-fascists on various bullshit and IWW Local 6 took the lead in getting their legal defence in order. This of course included raising money for their defence – something that The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund was happy to contribute to. Although they’ve now reached their initial goal, you have to expect more costs in the near future, so please feel free in joining us by making a contribution yourself!
