Fascists Get Fucked in Brighton….Again – a write up on the 2nd June action in Brighton from the Anti-Fascist Network
Couple of quality quotes from the day:
‘If there were no police, there would be no fascists, fact!’ – a member of the public who was asking the police to kindly ‘Piss off so we can get rid of the bastards.’
‘I don’t know why the police don’t just let us sort it out, they (the fascists) would never dare show their faces in Brighton again,’ – Anti-Fascist campaigner.
‘Go on kids, See em off!’ – an elderly lady watching from the railings outside Brighton train station as around a gang of 100 had just legged it down the road in hot pursuit of the 30 fascists being taken to the train station by police. – Re-posted from A.F.N.
Detailed report from Indymedia:
In Newcastle however:
There is no shortage of good, active comrades in the North so how did this happen? It seems the event was set up on Facebook and no attempt was made to call for support even after threats had been issued. By contrast the network in the south is well supported and organised to the extent that about 100 anti-fascists turned out in Brighton without a public callout.
Our experience has shown that any radical event is likely to attract fascists. Anyone arranging something like this should expect trouble and prepare for it, it’s still largely a numbers game – the police will always round on the smaller group. We urge all left-libertarian groups to sign up to the Anti-Fascist Network and work together to make sure the fash are never able to control our public spaces.
