Brighton Antifascists

Posted: February 1, 2011 in General

Welcome to the Brighton Antifascists group

We are an independent group, based in Brighton, that formed as a response to a recent increase in nationalist and fascist activity. We are willing to confront any fascist/racist activities in our area, by encouraging mass direct action amongst other methods. We are not aligned with any political party, nor do we co-operate with any, we also don’t work with the police. The state cannot be relied upon to oppose fascism, and will tolerate or encourage fascist groups when it suits its purposes.  We try to organise as a non-hierarchical group.

We are happy to work with other groups to build a non sectarian antifascist network.

If you have any information on fascist activity please contact us by phone on
07534 189 668, or email us at brightonantifascists@riseup.net

Last Saturday, the far-right group (and March for England regulars) “The South East Alliance” tried to march through Cricklewood in North London. Antifascists mobilised against them, with callouts from the Antifascist Network, the UAF and local Unions. Read the rest of this entry »

With March for England just in two days we thought it would be a good idea to present few choice specimens that are likely to make an appearance during this charming event. Read the rest of this entry »

blairpeach_1543298cThirty-five years ago today, the National Front held its St George’s Day
election rally in Southall. The rally was a deliberately provocative. The
National Front had no electoral base in the area; they sought to intimidate
local people, especially the West London Asian community.

On that day, 23rd April 1979, Blair Peach was killed as he protested
against the presence of the National Front in Southall and their attempts
to stir up hatred in the area in which he lived. He was struck on the head
by a policeman in the Special Patrol Group. Taken to hospital with a
suspected fractured skull, he died in the evening. When the Coroner finally
released Blair Peach’s body, more than 10,000 people joined his funeral
procession.

The Cass Report, suppressed for thirty years, admits he was ‘almost
certainly’ killed by a police officer. His partner, Celia Stubbs, who has
campaigned for truth about his death, wrote: “Blair was not a martyr. He
was an anti-racist who responded to a request from the Southall community
to support them at a demonstration to show the National Front was not
welcome there.”

STOP THE EDL MARCHING ON TOWER HAMLETS

SATURDAY 7 SEPTEMBER

ASSEMBLE 11AM ALTAB ALI PARK , WHITECHAPEL HIGH STREET

7SepLondonAFN1

In recent months, there has been a sharp rise in racist attacks and attacks on mosques, including arson and nail bombings. EDL marches are helping create and sustain and environment where such attacks are possible. It is important that we stand up and stand united against their presence.

The Anti-Fascist Network is calling for as many people as possible to come onto the streets on Saturday 7 September. The more people that attend, the safer and more empowering it will be for all of us. Ban or no ban, we want to make sure that the EDL do not get to intimidate people and parade their hatred through the streets unopposed.

LOOK OUT FOR THE AFN BANNER AND MARCH WITH US TO OPPOSE THE EDL
