Reading group – Far right

This months reading group will be, as usual, on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (19th March) at Freedom Bookshop, 7pm.

This reading group is part of a series of events examining how we respond to the far right, particualrly wihin broad social movements. Other events in this series will include a talk by a member of Les Éditions de Monde Libertaire, publishing group of the Fédération Anarchiste (France) who is active in the gillet jaune movement on the 22nd March (venue TBC). There is also a mobilisation against the far right ‘Yellow Vest’ movement in London on the 29th March.

We will be reading the following texts:

Alexander Reid Ross ‘The Multipolar Spin: How Fascists Operationalize Left-wing Resentment’ (https://hummusforthought.com/2018/03/16/the-multipolar-spin-how-fascists-operationalize-left-wing-resentment/)

Spencer Sunshine – The right hand of Occupy Wall Street: from libertarians to nazis, the fact and fiction of right-wing involvement (https://libcom.org/library/right-hand-occupy-wall-street-libertarians-nazis-fact-fiction-right-wing-involvement-spe)

Spencer Sunshine -Rebranding fascism: national anarchists (https://libcom.org/library/rebranding-fascism-national-anarchists-spencer-sunshine)

Questions we will be considering are: Why can ‘national anarchism’ not be anarchism? Under what circumstances was the far right able to attempt collaborations with the left? Do the far right and left share an enemy, i. e. do they occasionally think they do (is it capitalism)?

Russian/Greek Antifa solidarity benefit

We are hosting a night of international antifascist solidarity. The night will start with a talk by comrades from the Libertatia squat in Greece who’s building was burned down by fascists. They’ll give an overview of the rise of the far-right in Europe and efforts anarchists are doing to combat this.

Then the party begins.

We’ve got a hectic and frankly quite random lineup of bands for your musical enjoyment.

Inner Terrestrials
’24 years on the road and stronger than ever, London’s legendary Inner Terrestrials are a stomping mix of dub, punk, ska, folk and general anarchic danceability.’

Killdren
‘Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety, Killdren pen politically charged slapstick anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.’

Eskorputas
’3 piece girl punk band’ and winner of ‘minimalist band bio’ award 2018.

The Chain of Panic
‘Two parts Lithuanian, one part South African H/C THRASH PUNK.’

More acts TBC shortly.

Tickets will be £5 on the door (donations if unwaged/carer) and all money raised will be split between Libertatia and imprisoned Russian anti-fascists.

Russian anti-fascists under attack: Solidarity demo

On 19 January 2019 anti-fascists and anarchists from across the UK will hold a demonstration in solidarity with our Russian comrades who are being arrested, framed and tortured in a brutal wave of repression which has put eleven Russian anti-fascists behind bars, facing obviously fabricated charges which could see them jailed for five to twenty years each. Two of the detained are currently on hunger strike against their inhumane treatment.

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1954513344639049/

The repression began in autumn 2017 when six anti-fascists were arrested in Penza and had weapons and explosives planted on them. The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) tortured the anti-fascists in the pre-trial detention facility by electrocuting them, beating them and hanging them upside down. While torturing them, security chiefs forced the activists to memorise the testimony the FSB wanted them to give: that they were part of a fictional terrorist group called ‘The Network’.

Two more anti-fascists were arrested in St. Petersburg at the end of January 2018 and were also beaten, electrocuted and forced to incriminate themselves by saying they were members of ‘The Network’. A third person was accused in St. Petersburg and two more from Penza have also been arrested for supposed involvement in this make-believe organisation. The FSB claims that the detainees planned to arrange explosions during the presidential elections and the World Cup to “further destabilise the political situation in the country”.

After knowledge of the fabricated court cases and horrific torture became widespread, solidarity actions started to take place, but this led to more repression. Some Russian activists who took part were detained, electrocuted and had criminal proceedings started against them – just for expressing solidarity.

This repression of anti-fascists comes at a time when the Russian state are working with gangs of far-right thugs to repress the whole of civil society. One poignant example of this happened ten years ago, two Russian anti-fascists, journalist Anastasia Baburova and lawyer Stanislav Markelov, were murdered by fascists in broad daylight on 19 January. Every year, Russian anarchists and anti-fascists gather to remember them.

On Saturday 19 January 2019 we are calling for everybody opposed to racism, xenophobia, fascism and the upsurge of far-right populism sweeping the world to join us on the streets to express our solidarity with Russian anti-fascists. The demonstration will start at the Cable Street mural near Shadwell station, east London and will feature speakers and a rally.

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1954513344639049/

This demonstration is supported by:
Anarchist Communist Group
Feminist Fightback
London Anti-fascists
Plan C LDN
