Anti-Fascist Network: Coming up in March… (UK)

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

The Anti Fascist Network is all about getting out of our armchairs and on to the streets, so here’s a run through of what’s coming up. How will anyone know you oppose fascism if you don’t get out there and say so!

First up in March is an EDL national demo in Manchester on Saturday the 7th. The local UAF are organising a counter demo. It’s Piccadilly Gardens at midday. The EDL say their demo is because of ‘Muslim grooming gangs’ but a recent post from Malatesta demonstrates how the far-right has more than its fair share of sex offenders as well. Unfortunately, paedophiles and rapists turn up in all walks of life. It is not about ethnicity. (more…)

Antifascist march in Sofia (Bulgaria)

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Neither in Sofia nor anywhere…

Last Saturday, February 14, 2015, around 150-200 antifascists demonstrated in Sofia against the annual march in honour of general Hristo Lukov, Nazi collaborator and leading figure of the Bulgarian national-socialism, executed by partisans in 1943.

Fascists from all over Bulgaria take part in the march in memory of Lukov, and previously up to 1,000 people were participating in it. This year, the fascist gathering was attended by 300 invertebrates.

The antifascist demonstration was also directed against the rise of racism observed in Bulgaria in recent years, after the appearance of refugees (from Syria) for the first time in the country. Furthermore, demonstrators chanted slogans against homophobia (in 2008, fascist hooligans killed 25-year-old student Mihail Stoyanov at a park in Sofia because he “looked gay”).

In a display of internationalist antifascist solidarity, also 15-20 comrades from Greece, Romania and the Republic of Macedonia participated in the antifascist march.

7 Feb: Smash the EDL’s National Demo in Dudley (UK)

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

via rabbleLDN:

From Midlands Anti-Fascists.

ALERTA! Anti-Fascist response needed in the West Midlands!

The racists of the English Defence League (EDL) are planning to have their national demo on Saturday February the 7th in Dudley. They are treating it very seriously, and antifa need to be just as committed and more organised.

In the context of Charlie Hebdo, islamaphobia from the government, the media and the far-right is on the rise. Letting them feel they can have these views and gather in an attempt to intimidate Black, Asian and other minority ethnic populations is not an option. (more…)

Above: Τhe video of the attack at Golden Dawn office

Neonazis of Golden Dawn gather at their local offices in Athens, only to be paid a visit by antifascists. The Nazis lock themselves in, behind a metal door and wait anxiously for their best buddies in the Greek police to save them.

London: Anti-fascists organise against Neo-Nazi violence in Tottenham (UK)

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014



Check out: inthebellyofthebeast & anti-fascistnetwork:

On Saturday a group of Polish neo-Nazis from the group Zjednoczeni Emigranci (ZE – United Immigrants) attacked the small ‘Music Day’ festival in Markfield Park in Tottenham, North London assaulting a Jewish man and stabbing another Polish man. This pre-planned and unprovoked attack on a family music festival was carried out by a group of about 40 fascists and involved throwing glass bottles, stones and flares. Several other people were injured.

The individual who was stabbed purely through luck suffered only superficial injuries. One member of ZE has been arrested for religiously aggravated common assault in connection with the assault against a Jewish man.

After the end of the leftist ineffective & passive UAF rally, a group of around 100 led by the Polish anti-fascist group Dywizjon 161 marched up Tottenham High Road to Markfield Park and removed ZE graffiti and stickers throughout the area, replacing it with anti-fascist stickers and messages.

'March for England' – Anti-fascists beat the Nazis off the streets of Brighton again! (UK)

Monday, April 28th, 2014

¡No Pasarán!

From inthebellyofthebeast:

The annual March for England portrayed as a patriotic protest on St Georges day is an excuse for the fascist scum of the EDL (English Defence League) to plague the streets of Brighton. This year they got was coming to them when they were out numbered by 2,000 anti-fascists coming from all across the country.

The march this year was shortened due to the collapse of the road at the sea front. (even nature did not want the fascists to march) As usual the march was confronted on its route but restricted by a massive police presence with forces even being shipped in from as far as Cornwall. Also included on the day was the much loved TSG (Tactical Support Group, extremely violent militant police unit) and extensive fencing that included mobile barricades that closed off all streets reaching the beach front where the march was proceeding.

Anti-fascists on the day had no illusions that march at the sea would be impregnable and chose to roam the city centre of Brighton in affinity groups seeking the fascists who would be walking down from the railway station, with some drinking in pubs away from the march looking for a fight with those they are against such as anyone who is not white or skin headed, such as the racist attacks that happened last year after the march.

New animation film about anti-fascist resistance in Magdeburg (Germany)

Sunday, October 6th, 2013

‘Magdeburg is a city in the east of Germany: there is disruption created by an annual parade of fascists claiming to commemorate the casualties of an allied air strike that happened during the Second World War.

The emphasis they place on the nature of these casualties as victims could have the effect of distracting people’s attention from the atrocities performed by the Nazis themselves during the war, and from their role as the instigators of the conflict.’

Anarchist anti-fascists from Kazan need your solidarity (Russia)

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Four anarchist anti-fascists from Kazan, Oleg Kapustyanov, Ruslan Rostov, Timur Dornonin and Artyom Sher are currently in remand prison. Fifth suspect, Dmitri Ilichev is under traveling restrictions. Goal of the imprisonment is to pressure them to plea guilty.

Universiade, Nazis and police

This year Universiade, the international competition of the university sports, which finished 17th of July, was organized in Kazan. For the mainstream media, this was a merry and long waited sports event. But for inhabitants of Kazan, it was a torture, and for social activists of the city, it was a plain hell.

And the hell began 3th of April, when officers of Kazan «E-Center» (Center of Counteraction against Extremism») searched homes of four anarchist anti-fascist students — Dmitri Ilichev, Oleg Kapustyanov, Ruslan Rostov and Artyom Sher. All four were arrested. Only in the police station they were told that they were suspected of having taken part to a fight which took place one month before. (more…)

Police repress anti-fascists on the eve of university championships in Kazan (Russia)

Saturday, April 6th, 2013

At 8:00 a.m. 3rd of April, the officers from the Centre Against Extremism came with a search warrant to 4 addresses of Kazan antifascists.

The searches were carried out with clear violations. There was not any documents to substantiate the detentions but four young people: Ruslan Rostov, Oleg Kapustyanov, Dmitry Ilyichev and Artem Sher, were put into a car and taken to the Police Office “for the talks”, threatened with force. During the searches,two anti-fascists, including Artem Sher, who is a citizen of Israel, were beaten. Later a search took place at the workplace of one more antifascist – this time not only search operatives of the Centre Against Extremism, but also members of the FSB (Federal Service of (state) Security) were present. The resolution of a search warrant stated that the suspect “belongs to the informal youth association Antifa”. (more…)
