A national network of anti-fascists has been formed.
An Introduction to AFN:
An Anti-Fascist Network is being built by independent and grassroots groups
seeking to working together against the rise of fascism in our communities.
Over the last year alone, the English Defence League (EDL) have held as
many as 20 marches or static protests and attempted to disrupt anti-racist
meetings andbenefit gigs. Anti-fascists have opposed the EDL wherever they
go and continue to shut down BNP meetings, but we should be more
effective. The aim of the Anti-Fascist Network is to support local
actions, ensuring that anti-fascists are never outnumbered, join together
to counter regional and national EDL events, share resources and provide
The Anti-Fascist Network is not about telling people how to campaign in
their areas, what type of anti-fascist activity they should undertake or
what political analysis they should adopt. We simply want to cooperate to
defeat fascism and organised racism.
The Anti-Fascist Network is non-hierarchical, will never work with the
police and is not affiliated to any political party.
