The storyRacist, Far-Right Propaganda and Threats Against Leftists at Georgia State University: What Does It Mean, Who Is Responsible? was recently published by an anti-fascist group in Atlanta in the wake of white supremacist symbols appearing around Georgia State University in Downtown Atlanta, Georgia.

 

With this in mind, and with debates about race now a common theme in national and regional political discussions, mnis members consider it important that the general public know what symbols are commonly used by white supremacist hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, National Socialist Movement, Aryan National, American Renaissance, and others. This is an attempt to cover some of the more well-known symbols and habits of white supremacist hate groups, although these symbols and behaviors are constantly changing and adapting to pressure from anti-fascist/anti-racist groups and the general public.

Running The Fascists Out Of Town!

FROM: Antifa International

Recently, a group of antifascists in Nyköping, Sweden succeeded in completely shutting down fascist activity in their city. This is an interview made by Antifa International with A., one of the Nyköping antifa, about how they did it:

1) Can you tell us a little bit about where you live?

We’re present in the city of Nyköping. It’s your regular city, nothing very special about it!

2) When did you notice that nazis were beginning to be a problem in your town?  Was there a certain event or point that made you decide that you had to take action?

We decided to get together and do something ourselves when we started noticing an increase in fascist activities in our city and everywhere else, and to get this city as friendly and as discriminatory free as possible for the refugees that would be arriving.

4) When you decided to take anti-fascist action in your town, what concerns did you have?

Most of our concerns were with safety. Being masked up and dressed in black only gets you so far, and there were certain concerns with security officers and cops.  Seeing as these “soldiers of odin” also are masked up, people had a bit of a fright when we started out, until we showed them where we stood whenever we were out.

5) How did you decide what action you should take?  Did you research it first, or talk with other people?

We did a lot of research before! We actively follow this tumblr and have made use of a lot of the tips. We started out with first covering small areas with just stickers, but quickly moved on to street art, longer nights out and covering larger parts of the city with stickers in one go.
