From Manchester Antifascists:
“SMASH ISIS – SUPPORT YPG
As anti fascists we do not hesitate to condemn last nights attack which was undoubtedly ordered or inspired by the Salafi Fascists of ISIS, Al Qaeda or similar.
The people of Manchester will not be divided by any of those who wish to paint such attacks as simply a matter of ‘muslims vs non muslims’: the Salafi Fascists themselves, the British Far Right, the Right Wing corporate media, and the imperialist politicians who wish to capitalise on our fears of Salafi terrorism yet support politically and financially those Gulf regimes who are the economic and ideological mentors of the Salafi groups wreaking terror across the world from Syria to Manchester.
These forces wish to see us opposed to one another, yet we are friends, relatives, neighbours and colleagues. We are no mugs in Manchester. We will stand together.
We must root out those behind such divisive ideology and expose them, and stop their poison decisively.
