A couple of days ago we received a submission of a press release from Stand Up Against Racism about the demo in London on August 3. What we didn’t know at the moment we published it, is that this organisation is affiliated with the SWP. (For more info on the SWP, see tweet in the article.) Today we republish a report that was originally published by Oxford Anti-Fascists about the demo in London. We deleted the Stand Up to Racism/SWP article as we will not support the SWP and affiliated organizations.Continue reading #Oxford Anti-Fascists August 3: #London is Anti-fascist! No Pasaran!

London, UK: The logic of the prison, its categorisation of ‘good citizens’, the ‘innocent’ and the ‘criminal’ and the ‘guilty’, its colonisation of time; its punishment by the hours that drip away, all its routine brutalities, its petty pecking orders, its enforcement of servility, the breaking of rebellious spirit— this logic is both the way our society disappears its problems and paradoxically how everything within it really functions.Continue reading #UK, #London June 1: Noise demo at HMP Pentonville prison!

Less than a month after our first assembly we took to the streets of London to carry out an action to coincide with the beginning of Extinction Rebellion’s (XR) ‘Rebellion Week’. We gathered among the tourists in front of St Paul’s cathedral. Our numbers were made up of members from various groups, including but not limited to the London Anarchist Federation, Earth Strike UK and the Revolutionary Communist Group. With flags waving, masks up and the sound system blaring, we began our stroll down the middle of the road, blocking traffic as we went.Continue reading #London: Green Anti-Capitalist Front April 15th – Post-action report

Stand Up To Racism/Unite Against Fascism (which I will treat as interchangeable from this point) already has a less than stellar reputation among anti-fascists, and their behaviour on the mobilisation against Tommy Robinson on the 9th of December has done nothing to challenge that reputation. As a participant in that mobilisation, my ground level experience of events is obviously incomplete and even before that day I had no love for the Socialist Worker Party, which Stand Up To Racism is widely agreed to be a front organisation for, but what I did see was a stab in the back of the broader anti-fascist movement involved in the mobilisation.
But before the events of the day, some background…Continue reading #London: Building coalitions outside SUTR/SWP (9th Dec write up)
