Anti Fascist Network conference 01.12.19

How did so many ordinary people back a regime based on racist violence, even as it ramped up violence against minorities and anyone on the left? “Would I have been seduced by the apocalyptic rhetoric? Would I have been able to hold onto my morals while barbarity became normality? And if the politicians and the powerful acquiesced to the interests of business fueled by racism and division, what could I have done as just one person?” As of 2019, the time to wonder “what would I have done?” is done. Let’s talk about what we can do!

This is a public day of practical and theoretical workshops and discussions about how to resist racism and fascism in the present day, based on the active role of the working class and others targeted by fascism. There will also be stalls, socialising, food and a chance to meet others in the struggle.

All voices, all perspectives, all backgrounds welcome, in a spirit of collective strength and support.

Afterwards: music and socialising at the Library, Cowley Road.

Support local antifascists

From crowdfunder page sent to us:

“Please support antifascists from Bristol who have been repeatedly targeted by the police for being active antifascists. A particularly heavy fine of £1500 was imposed on one antifascist, a person of colour, who has also been experiencing significant intimidation and harassment from local officers.

Three antifascists are currently facing bogus charges from a “total policing”, Draconian operation to prevent opposition to a far-right demonstration in Dewsbury on 12th October.

This repression is intended to wear us down and intimidate us. It is also designed to waste our time and effort with fundraising to pay for numerous journeys to court and to pay the fines imposed.

We need to show the authorities that it will not work. Please show your solidarity and support by making a donation towards our target of £1000. “
