Anti-Fascism After a lot of confusion and last minute date changing (no
doubt to keep anti-fascists off the scent), the National Front (NF)
finally decided to have their march in Woolwich on Saturday 15th January.
The march was held to stir up racial tensions following the horrible murder
of white teenager Terry Gregory last year. His family have repeatedly said
they want nothing to do with the NF or their politics. This was the one-year
anniversary of Terry’s death, with the NF also holding a march last year.
One group of anti-fascists spotted two particularly ugly and badly dressed
boneheads and followed them onto a train heading towards their meet up
point. At the next stop, the boneheads were made to feel extremely ‘uncomfortable’
on the train and one fascist would later turn up to the march looking more than a little worse for wear. One anti-fascist sustained an injury, from the fascists attacking his fists with their faces!

The NF later held their march, bringing out thirty members (almost half
last year’s total) and the Unite Against Fascism picket had around a
hundred, with similar numbers of police. No arrests were made.

===================================
* Antifa is a collective of militant anti-fascists committed to opposing
the rise of the far-right in Britain and abroad. We believe in the 'no
platform' philosophy and the tradition of fighting fascism/racism
stretching back to Cable Street, Red Lion Square, Lewisham, and
Waterloo.

We are a network of various organisations and individuals who see
anti-fascism as part of the class struggle. After decades of
underperforming, the far-right now poses a significant threat
politically.

This initiative aims to bring together those who wish to act rather
than talk. We aim to oppose the far-right's electoral politics and
where possible by means of direct action. As well as street activities
we aim to promote militant anti-fascism in the football and music
areas. This website will serve as an information and activity site, we
will post up any intelligence on far-right activities and invite other
anti-fascists to join us in counter activities.

The 'Antifa' initiative has come from members of the Anarchist
Federation, Class War Federation, and No Platform. Although we
come from the anarchist tradition we are open to work with any
group/individual that is serious about militant anti-fascism, but we
will NOT work with any state affiliated groups. If you are interested
in getting involved then please contact us.
