They shall not pass! Stop the White Man March in Liverpool

Stop the White Man March

Facebook event

On Saturday 15th August, neo-Nazis will attempt to march through Liverpool. The so-called “White Man March” – this time on its second outing – is organised primarily by members of neo-Nazi youth group National Action. It is supported by neo-Nazi groups from across Europe.

In March this year, the first “White Man March” took place in Newcastle. Around 100 neo-Nazis marched through the city before burning gay, communist and Israeli flags, screaming “Hitler was right” and sieg-heiling at counter-protestors. Although small compared to other far right protests, this was the largest and most explicit neo-Nazi march to take place in the UK since the eighties.

Britain First’s Steve Lewis meets the long arm of the law…

Prompted by the death of a 13 year old boy in the Channel Tunnel. Folkestone United called a demo in solidarity with the Calais migrants on Saturday calling for “no more tunnel deaths”.

Fascists from Britain First and the EDL both decided to turn up to oppose it. That’s right – they were opposing people who thought children dying in the Channel Tunnel was a bad thing. Because they only oppose militant Islam remember?

Britain First members tried (and failed) to physically attack the Folkestone United demonstration.

This is the latest from the mobilisation to stop the neo-Nazi ‘White Man March’ in Liverpool on August 15th.

It is now only 2 weeks until the day. We want as many people as possible to join us on the streets on the 15th, with as much energy as possible to stop their openly anti-Semitic, homophobic and racist march in its tracks.

Liverpool has a proud anti-fascist history and it is totally unacceptable that Nazis think they can use the city as a base or stronghold from which to spread their poison.

Anti-Fascists take to the streets this Saturday: Lincoln and Wakefield

21 07 2015

Anti-fascists in Lincoln march against the far-right last year

Wakefield: 10.30am, Cathedral Steps

Lincoln: 12.00, top of Lincoln High St

As the far-right continues to simultaneously fragment and become more dangerous and extreme, anti-fascists are increasingly facing multiple far-right marches happening at the same time.

Rather than one occasional EDL demo of several hundred people we are now often seeing multiple smaller marches from across the spectrum of racist hatred, making it harder to keep tabs on them all.

This weekend, as well as it being the international day of solidarity with anti-fascist prisoners (see our previous post), there are anti-fascist mobilisations against the EDL in Lincoln and against the Nazi National Front in Wakefield.

July 25th: International Day of Solidarity with Anti-Fascist Prisoners

14 07 2015

The Anti-Fascist Network is supporting New York City Antifa‘s call for an international day of solidarity with anti-fascist prisoners.

They write:

Antifascists fight against those who—in the government or in the streets—dream of imposing their fascist and other Far Right nationalist nightmares on the rest of us. Throughout the world, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, and racist bigotries are on the rise. Antifas are on the frontline in confronting these reactionary politics, and we will not forget our comrades imprisoned in the course of this struggle.

The July 25 International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners originated in 2014 as a Day of Solidarity with Jock Palfreeman, an Australian who is imprisoned in Bulgaria for defending two Romani men from an attack by fascist football hooligans. Groups around the world took action: holding demonstrations, benefits supporting the Bulgarian Prisoners Association, writing to Jock, and talking about the plight of the Romani and Sinti people in general.
