Bristol: EDL confronted in Old Market (UK)

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

From Bristol Indymedia:

Yesterday [Saturday July 15, 2012], following the EDL march in Bristol, a sizeable group of EDL supporters were confronted by antifascists outside a pub on Old Market.

Reports that a large number of EDL members had congregated in the Long Bar on Old Market Street were confirmed when a pissed-up group outside began to hurl abuse and insults at random passers-by who they presumed were ‘opposition.’ Beknown to them, there was a crew of around 40 antifascists just around the corner… (more…)

Antifascist Solidarity Needed in Liverpool on Saturday 21st July! (UK)

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

At 13:00 on Saturday, 21st July, Liverpool Antifascists will be gathering at Combermere Street in the Toxteth area of the city. We then plan to march to the city centre, for a rally themed around ‘working class unity against racism and fascism’. Liverpool Antifascists would like to ask you to attend, or spread the word about the event if this is not possible. This will be a vital day for Liverpool activism, and even the city in general.

To understand why, it’s important to look at the background to this demonstration. In February, a gang of around two hundred fascists mobilised in the city centre, running amok, and forcing the Irish Republican Flute Band off the streets, before going on to hassle Occupy supporters on an anti-police brutality protest. This was a serious defeat for Liverpool activists, and it is vital that this is acknowledged, so that we can stop it happening again in the future. (more…)

Bristol Anti-Fascists Say: Stop the English Defence League (UK)

Monday, June 25th, 2012

From Anti-Fascist Network:

The EDL are marching in Bristol on the 14th of July. The counter-mobilisation is in full swing, so get involved. Now is the time for action.

Come to Templemeads area [main train station] and line the route at 10am on the 14th to give them the welcome they deserve. Stay alert. Stay mobile. Bring your mates. There are many, many ways to show your opposition to the EDL: don’t let them march, don’t give ’em a lift in your taxi, put posters up in shops, don’t serve them drinks, raise awareness about their farcical attempts to disguise their homophobia, chat to work colleagues, decorate the city…. do whatever you feel comfortable with but now is the time to get a crew together and take action against racism in our city. We want to meet them at the station to stop them marching for any distance. We will resist them wherever they turn and we will be watching them. Let’s defend ourselves against the EDL! Zero tolerance of fascism on our streets.

Imprisoned anti-fascist Ravi Gill released (UK)

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Ravi Gill was released from Wayland Prison this morning after completing half of a 21 month sentence imposed last year following the first Welling antifascist trial. He thanks everyone for the support he received while inside.

Ravi was one of seven antifascists fitted-up on conspiracy charges after a German neo-Nazi was floored at Welling train station. A further sixteen antifascists were acquitted.

Six comrades went to jail in the case, with one subsequently being deported. Ravi Gill is the last prisoner to be released.

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Ravinder Gill is one of the six UK antifascists imprisoned last year after being fitted-up for ‘conspiracy to cause violent disorder’. While the other five comrades have all been released, either subject to curfew on electronic tag, or in the case of Thomas Blak to deportation, Ravi Gill remains in prison. Ravi is an avid reader, but books sent to him by Haven Distribution, a supplier approved by the Prison Service, are being withheld from him by the Governor of Wayland, Kevin Reilly. (more…)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Today [24-3-12], the North West Infidels went to Bolton. There was a month of hype and build up, especially after the events in Liverpool on February 18, and in the past week threats and tough talk were bandied about on the internet. But ultimately, the demo fell flat on its face. (more…)

Fascist-Skinhead music and clothing stall gets a new paint-job : Bristol (UK)

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

From Bristol IMC:

Local antifascists took action yesterday [10 March 2012] with a paint attack on The Last Resort skinhead music and clothing stall on Corn Street. This business is run by Chris Pugh, a fascist skinhead and member of the English Defence League, and is being used to provide a platform for racist, fascist ideology under the cover of being “just about the music”. We thought it could do with a bit of an antifascist redecoration. The merchandise got absolutely trashed and we had no trouble from the “tough guy” skinhead behind the stall. While we understand that it will take more than a red and black wash to persuade these bigotted idiots about the error of their ways, we think it’s a good starting contribution to the sort of dialogue we’re prepared for with fascists in Bristol.

Nizhny Novgorod criminal case – Interview with Artem Bystrov, framed Anti-Fascist activist (Russia)

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

On April 26, 2011, in the morning, six young people were arrested by Center “E” detectives (so-called “Anti-Extremist” cops). Five anti-fascists of Nizhny Novgorod were subject to home-searches. One of the flats was stormed by OMON (Special Police Squad), the windows were broken because nobody was at home.

During the searches the membership cards of a non-existing organisation “RASH-Antifa” with photos and serial numbers, evidently made by Center “E” (Anti-Extremist Center) detectives, were planted in suspects’ homes.

Withdrawal of support from Viktor Padellaro, animal rights prisoner (Sweden)

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

It has been brought to the attention of 325 by Swedish insurrectionaries & ABC Stockholm, that the animal rights prisoner Viktor Padellaro is a fascist and not in anyway supported by the anarchist movement there.

Viktor Padellaro is convicted for arson, ‘vandalism’ and sending threatening letters in the context of animal rights campaigns.

Padellaro is registered on the Neo-Nazi website and forum “Nordisk.nu” under the moniker “LaDecima” and is an active editor of the likewise Neo-Nazi wiki Metapedia. He also has a blog (http://le-clairon.blogspot.com/) under the moniker of Le Clarion, on which he terms himself a “traditionalist”. If you read this blog, you’ll notice that he often voices loud support for Italian fascists and blackshirts, among other similar things.

Viktor Padellaro is no comrade of ours, and deserves no support from the anarchist movement. He is a fascist, and should be crushed as such.
