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

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

INCUBUS: Incendiary rants of an apostate anarchist blog published very interesting analysis of EDL. We thoroughly  recommend reading it. For the full version go to : https://incubusblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/what-is-the-point-of-the-edl/

Brighton Anti-fascists will be joining anti-fascists from the region opposing the English Volunteer Force (EVF) protest outside the Home Office Immigration building in Croydon this Saturday, the 27th July. The EVF aim to demonstrate against what they view as the Home Office’s ‘soft touch’ on immigration. As always, we will oppose the fascists wherever they appear and we gladly stand alongside the trade unionists and anti-fascists who stand against the far right.

 

However, we are clear that we are there to oppose the fascist presence, and what they stand for – not to defend to immigration system as it stands. We do not view it as a public good under threat. While not conflating government policy with those who work there, we oppose the British immigration system as we oppose the fascists, and stand in solidarity with those facing all racist violence, whether from UKBA thugs or the EDL/EVF.

DEFEND MIGRANTS OPPOSE FASCISM

11.30am Saturday 27 July Lunar House Croydon

For more information on EVF (English Volunteer Force) and the anti-fascist opposition see post below (“Oppose the Racist EVF Demonstration”)

On Saturday 27th July a splinter group of the EDL called the English
Volunteer Force have called a demonstration outside Lunar House in
Croydon, which is the main asylum seeker processing centre in the UK,
where asylum seekers and migrants are obliged to come by the Home Office.
The EVF are more openly and virulently racist that the EDL and will be
supported by a number of other far-right splinter groups.

Their aim is to scapegoat migrants for many of the problems of society and
to stoke up anti-Muslim hatred.
They aim to capitalise upon anti-immigrant feeling connected with the rise
of UKIP and on the recent surge in Islamophobia since the killing of Lee
Rigby in Woolwich in May.

Lunar House will be operating on the day and migrants, many of whom are
vulnerable people having fled torture and abuse, will have to queue
outside suffering abuse from
fascists.

The EVF are being opposed by a broad coalition of local residents and the
local Trades Council, South London Anti-Fascists, the local Green Party,
UAF, One Croydon, Croydon SolFed, the Anti-Fascist Network and others.

Say no to racism, Islamophobia and migrant scapegoating – Join us on the
27th to stand together against the hatred of the EVF and to defend
people's right to seek asylum.

The EVF have just announced their demonstration will start at 12 noon,
an hour and a half earlier than their original time. 

Keeping watching for updates.
