Well, it’s been an eventful fall for anti-fascists, hasn’t it? Millionaire creep Gavin McInnes quit the white supremacist gang he founded & led after the FBI put them on an extremist watch list; former child grooming gang leader Tommy Robinson got run out of Luton Town when he tried to infiltrate the terraces; the leader of the ever-so-scary National Action nazi terror group was found by cops hiding in a cupboard; and Philadelphia gave our movement the mascot we need!
Meanwhile, here’s what The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund did over the last three months:
- We helped to defend anti-fascists in North Carolina who were arrested after police there decided to smash up their picnic potluck & food bank drive;
- We put money together to help Tim “Sauce” Jones defend himself against the assault charges put on him by white supremacist terrorist James Alex Fields Jr. after the two of them had an open & frank jailhouse discussion about Fields’ beliefs and actions.
- We covered part of the legal costs for defending Eugene, OR. antifascists against a frivolous and vexatious lawsuit brought against them by Bethany “Weed Nazi” Sherman after she was publicly outed as a neo-nazi;
- We assisted in the legal defence of antifascistes in Lyon, France who were arrested for doing some creative building improvement at the doorway of a fascist clubhouse.
We were able to do all of this only because of the donations and support we receive from anti-fascists around the world. If you believe that anti-fascism = self-defence and that our greatest weapon is solidarity, show us you mean it by making a donation to the Defence Fund today!
