Summer is over and the far-right have not gone away.

On October 13th (Facebook event page for antifascist counter protests: https://www.facebook.com/events/257939294927379/, EIE) the far-right Democratic Football Lads Alliance plan to march in London. In the last year thousands of them have taken to the streets, uniting racists from UKIP to Generation Identity. By manipulating information and outright lying the far-right now present themselves as free-speech campaigners and protectors of women and children from sexual abuse committed by ‘Muslim’ and ‘Asian’ men.Image result for anti fascist football lads

Back in the real world.

We know that sexual assault and abuse aren’t isolated acts of violence. Rape culture is rampant and widespread. Most sexual violence is committed by people who are in our everyday lives – our spouses, partners, ex-partners, bosses, priests, sports coaches etc. Ignoring this fact contributes to why people of all genders, including the very women and girls fascists claim to protect, are still not believed supported when they speak out. What the #metoo movement has made clear is how utterly normalised and widespread sexual and gendered violence and harassment is.

Racism and sexism go hand in hand.

So, why do the far-right use the terms “grooming gangs” and “industrial-scale abuse” for Asian and Muslim men, but make no mention of sexual abuse in the Catholic church or international sports teams? By scapegoating migrants and refugees the far-right deliberately ignores the fact that sexual abuse happens in every country, culture and community – and in our own homes. Sexual violence will not be stopped by racist solutions such as tightening national borders or making the problem only about men in minority communities, nor a return to “traditional’ gender roles for women. The far right do not have genuine answers, because this would mean them recognising and confronting the fact that white men continue to hold more power, structurally, in all spheres of our society – whether in politics, our communities or workplaces.Image result for anti fascist football lads

When the far-right are left unchallenged their confidence grows, their messages becomes more hateful and their ideas more accepted. This is how fascism has begun in the past.

Feminists to the front on 13 Oct

The Women’s Strike Assembly are calling for a joyful and militant feminist presence to confront the Democratic Football Lads Alliance on Oct 13th. We will disrupt the far-right’s attempt to use our experiences of sexual violence for their racist agenda. It is time to put an end to the lie that all the victims are white women and all the perpetrators are black and asian men. Far from being weak and in need of ‘protection’, women and non-binary people in every community are the ones holding families together, putting food on the table and making ends meet. We are powerful, even more so when we take action together.

We are calling on feminists of all genders to come to London on Oct 13th. We need your help to mobilise at least 500 women, trans and non-binary people to form a feminist anti-fascist bloc to lead the counter-demonstration and show the far-right what a feminist response to structural and systemic violence actually looks like. We will hold space, make noise and keep each other safe. There is transport from other cities being organised. On the day there will be childcare and food provided, and there will be information nights across the country in the next month.

Now is not the time to be silent and stay at home.

Let’s make feminism powerful again. Anti-fascism must be feminist, and feminism must be anti-fascist.

‘Sin Platforma Para el Fascismo’, herramientas de  MACC Tech


El Consejo Coordinador Anarquista Metropolitano, (MACC) una organización que facilita la colaboración entre los anarquistas de la ciudad de Nueva York, cree que la extrema derecha debe combatirse en todos los frentes.

plug-in gratuita aquí … http://noplatform.macc.nyc/

MACC lanzó recientemente el Kit de herramientas ‘Sin plataforma para el fascismo’, un complemento de navegador para Chrome y Firefox, que cada semana sirve a los usuarios videos de individuos y organizaciones neonazis, supremacistas blancos y etno-nacionalistas para informar y denunciar.

El plug-in te informa de los últimos videos nazis y racistas subidos al YouTube y lo hace fácíl denunciarlos. Es legal según las reglas internos de YouTube.

La esperanza de MACC es que, a través de la acción colectiva, los antifascistas puedan expulsar a los intolerantes de YouTube, lo que efectivamente obstaculizará sus esfuerzos de reclutamiento …

informe de un usuario..

he probado el plug-in.. salió rapidamente una lista de 16 videos , 7 de ellos eran claramente PROPAGANDA POR NAZIS, uno glorificando un ataque sexual y la mayoria de los demás peliculas y dibujos animados con contenido muy racista. Explican todo..(menos mal porque yo no habría dado cuento a veces). Pero si no sabes algo de inglés hay que traducir, y parece que los compañeros de Nueva York no hablan castellano, así que faltaria el plug-in también en más idiomas. … Hacer la denuncia es un clic, un momento, he denunciado todos.

 Help remove far-right propaganda from YouTube with this extension for Chrome and Firefox

by  Arvind Dilawar      YouTube has long been acknowledged as, well, not exactly the friendliest place on the Internet. But as the far right has ascended in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, many critics have accused the video-sharing website of being much worse than a playground for trolls; they believe that YouTube is an avenue for radicalization and recruitment.

Following complaints that the site’s search algorithm was only thinly veiling caches of hateful propaganda, YouTube decided to exclude some users from monetizing their content. But while the site is no longer paying extremists, it is still very much hosting them.

 The Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council, an organization facilitating collaboration between New York City-based anarchists, believes that the far right must be fought on every front.

Accordingly, MACC recently released the No Platform for Fascism Tool Kit, a browser plug-in for both Chrome and Firefox, which each week serves users videos from neo-Nazi, white supremacist, and ethno-nationalist individuals and organizations to report.

MACC’s hope is that, through collective action, anti-fascists will be able to drive bigots from YouTube, effectively staunching their recruitment efforts. Continue reading “This Browser Plug-In Lets You Resist Fascism on the Internet”

Antifa (2018): New documentary available to watch online

by

Not to be confused with last year’s similarly-titled The Antifascists, Antifa is a half-hour film, mainly focused on recent antifascist struggles in the US, but with a brief look at the UK and Germany for some historical context. As a brief content warning, it includes some footage from the immediate aftermath of the car attack in Charlottesville where Heather Heyer lost her life, so if you feel that you don’t need to watch that kind of footage, you can skip from about 25:20 to 26:20.

As ever, these films are most interesting when watched and discussed as a group – if you feel that a half-hour film isn’t enough for an event on its own, you could watch it alongside Bash the Fash, which is also half an hour, or the hour-and-a-bit Swedish/Greek film The Antifascists.

The Acorn. issue 39 : Resistance on the streets in 2018!

In this issue:

  1. “Let’s put our resistance on the streets in 2018!”
  2. Fake democracy – neoliberals ramp up information war
  3. So who’s behind the attacks on Antifa?
  4. Terrorists, pseudogangs and psyops

1. “Let’s put our resistance on the streets in 2018!”

Resistance against the global capitalist system and its police-state repression will be coming to the streets of Europe at the start of 2018, with important international demonstrations planned for Switzerland and Germany.

The action, and discussion, in Switzerland this month revolves around the meeting at Davos of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Swiss radicals are calling for anti-capitalist unity against the WEF and the plutofascist system it represents.

They say: “This year’s WEF slogan is ‘Creating a common future in a broken world’. We agree that the world is not what it should be. But unlike the WEF we see…
