Planning actions, demonstrations and campaigns

Media and publicity

Security

  • Very comprehensive (if a few years old now) guide on general security for activists and campaigners from Activist Security, including advice on phones (never send texts!), computers, infiltrators and police attention. Also a useful guide on meeting up in pubs and other public spaces.

Getting the message out

4

  • Lots of anti-fascist groups have sections on their blogs, websites and Facebook pages with resources that can be downloaded and printed off (e.g. Brighton Antifascists)
  • There are also many sites like Active Distro, Pozor Distro and SabCat that produce anti-fascist stickers and posters that your group could buy and distribute.
  • There are lots of recipies for wheatpaste online, some of the best are on WikiHow. Urban75 have written an “essential guide” on how to flypost once you’ve got the paste ready.
  • Once your group is established, it’s always worth getting a Facebook, Twitter and blog going to get the message out online. But remember, keep it secure and professional.

How to Raise Money

  • Seeds for Change guide on fundraising.
  • Some groups make applications to activist funds such as the Edge Fund and XminY.
  • If you get a blog up and running, stick a Paypal “donate” button on it, you never know, you might get a few quid!
  • Some groups lauch online funding appeals using sites like GoFundMe and IndieGoGo.
