At this point and with all that’s happened over the last couple of years, there’s pretty much nothing anti-fascists can do publicly without the police trying to fuck it up. Whether they’re pressing absurdly trumped-up charges against anti-fascists or allowing armed fascist gangs to attack anti-fascist protestors and then arresting the anti-fascists when they try … Continue reading Police Prevent Picnic/Potluck
Yesterday The Guardian reported that evidence has surfaced of police collusion and cooperation with white supremacists in California. On June 26, 2016, neo-nazis armed with knives (and, in one case, a semi-automatic pistol) were confronted by unarmed anti-fascists. While the good guys were successful in shutting down the boneheads’ planned hate rally, it came at … Continue reading How We Helped Expose Police Collusion With White Supremacists
One of the difficulties of running a defence fund for anti-fascists is deciding what does or does not constitute anti-fascist action or, when an anti-fascist runs into trouble, if it was their anti-fascism that put them in that trouble. This is something The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund has wrestled with, on a case-by-case basis, over … Continue reading When Is Action Anti-Fascist Action?
We know by now that fascists will do just about anything to further their agenda of bigotry and genocide, including (and we hope you’re sitting down for this one) lying to police in order to get anti-fascists arrested! Such was the case for our man James in Portland. This past November, after fascist goons threatened … Continue reading King James
If there’s one things fascists like, it’s controlling and dominating women. Misogyny has always been a key component of fascism. So it comes as no surprise to hear that members of the Germany’s fascist AfD party joined religious zealots in a 2019 Berlin march against the right of women to control their own bodies. Likewise, … Continue reading Feminismus ist kein Verbrechen!
Leipzig, Germany has a neo-nazi problem. The International Violent Hate Crimes Research Project documented enough violent attacks by neo-nazis and the far right in that small city in 2020 to mark it as one of worst cities in Europe for right wing extremist violence. Obviously, this is a grave public safety emergency that most people … Continue reading Freiheit Für Lina!
One thing we’ve seen time and time again at protests in 2020 is how appreciated and respected volunteer street medics are to the protestors they’re caring for and on, several occasions, saving the lives of. Another thing we’ve seen time and time again at protests in 2020 is how much cops hate volunteer street medics … Continue reading Now Hear This!
If you turned on the news at any point over the last five months then we don’t have to tell you that protesting police brutality & racism is a dangerous thing to do in America circa 2020. Over the summer there were 104 separate car attacks against Black Lives Matter protests. At least five people … Continue reading She Defended Us; We’re Defending Her
The gif of the incident tells the entire story – a fascist goon in Wien chooses a much smaller anti-fascist as his target at an anti-fascist rally and aggressively goes after them, not anticipating that the antifa would effectively defend themselves with a decent left hook! Anyone can see who the aggressor is here and … Continue reading Defend Wien!
Gothenburg is not the kind of city that would normally spring to mind when you hear the phrase “street battles with fascists,” but over the last few years as Sweden’s so-called Nordic Resistance Movement tried to gain a foothold there, that’s been the reality. The nazis there have bombed the city’s bookstores and refugee … Continue reading We’ve Got Gothenburg
