Antifascist actions this weekend: against the art-right, Britain First, Polish nationalists and more…

The far-right will be out and about in various different forms this weekend, and there’ll be opposition to them all over the place:

In Telford, Shropshire Antifa are mobilising against a Britain First rally. Down in London, London Antifascists and others will be out leafleting against the LD50 art gallery, which has been using a veneer of arty irony and ambiguity as a cover for hosting talks by a variety of seriously nasty fash types. I don’t want to link directly to the LD5o wankers, but if you’re interested it’s easy enough to find a bit of their hilariously pompous response to the criticism they’ve received:

Don’t you just hate it when you dare eschew a constraint and then you end up getting intimidated with menaces in a way that obviates the possibility of rational interpretation? :(((

Anyway, elsewhere the EDL will be making a return to Rotherham, and on the 26th Polish fascists Jacek Międlar and Leszek Żebrowski are due to make an appearance in Slough, while local antifascists are making a big push to get it cancelled.

Down in Bristol, Bristol IWW are hosting a workshop for migrant and refugee workers this weekend, and the weekend after that various racists and nazi types will be descending on the city.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
