Olympia—Hundreds of Olympia residents confronted Nazis outside of the corporate newspaper building here today. Nine members of the Nazi group National Socialist Movement gathered to test Olympia for future recruiting drives and a possible larger rally in July. Many of the Nazis dressed in SS Storm Trooper brownshirt uniforms and displayed large Nazi and American flags. Olympia residents were given less than a day’s notice to spread the news and organize a response.

Olympia residents surrounded the Nazis who were protected by approximately a dozen police officers. Both sides freely exchanged jeers and insults while police officers adjusted their buffer zone keeping residents away from the Nazis. Many residents were outraged that Nazis came to Olympia to openly espouse ethnic cleansing, genocide and hate. Olympia residents stood in the Nazis’ way and successfully prevented the Nazi group from marching to the State Capitol.

After approximately forty minutes, the Nazis decided to leave. Residents let out a huge cheer when most of the Nazis returned to their trucks and left. Three Nazis did not park their car at the rally point and were followed down State Avenue by police and residents.

Eventually garbage cans were placed in the three Nazis’ path. Police officers escorted the Nazis across the street and then into the backseats of police cars. Police then transported the Nazis to an unknown location.

Residents continued downtown and re-gathered in Sylvester Park to discuss the day’s experience. Residents passed around a megaphone and made speeches about what they learned and how proud they are of the Olympia community. Many residents expressed the need to fight fascism in all its forms.

imageWhat is authoritarian populism and why should it be combated? Jun 02 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

The rise of an authoritarian populist politics, which presents itself as against the “Establishment,”” for the “common” people and “anti-globalisation,” is happening worldwide — and there are dangerous signs in South Africa. The populist upsurge sees voters reject big, established parties that embraced neo-liberalism after the economic crisis of 2007, in the context of a retreating working class and left. The author argues that the solution is to build from below for a new society beyond the state, class rule and capitalism based on self-management and production for need.

imageFascism and its cure Sep 09 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group (MACG) 0 comments

The growth of Fascism is ongoing. The massacres will continue and perhaps keep accelerating until we have a movement that can both confront it physically and address the political issues that give it life. This requires workers uniting across borders to win battles that cannot be won on the national terrain. Whether we are talking about cars, mining, garments or anything else, we confront global corporations and global supply chains. Our response must be global. And by building a truly global labour movement, we can not only defeat Fascism, but open the door to a workers’ revolution that will do away with capitalism forever.

imageA spectre is haunting us: it’s the past weighing like a nightmare on the present Jul 26 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

The context we now exist in is one that is defined by glaring contradictions everywhere, its fractured, changing, unstable and confrontational. It is a time of despair, but also pockets of hope. On the one hand, a spectre is haunting us, but it is not the one that Marx spoke of. Rather an authoritarian and extreme right wing form of capitalism, last seen on extensive scale in the 1930s, is rearing its hideous ghost-like head. This right wing extremism has become an ‘acceptable’ form of politics amongst some people in the context of the unresolved capitalist crisis. It is the ‘solution’ amongst sections of ruling classes in many countries to a crisis that is not going away. As part of this, many states are passing laws attacking basic rights that oppressed classes have won through decades and even centuries of struggle (including in South Africa); states are beginning to bare their teeth more often rather than being in a position to rule by consent; toxic nationalisms based on exclusionary racial, ethnic and religious identities (including within sections of the population in South Africa) have once again become acceptable and even embraced by sections of the population (giving rise to the likes of Trump, Le Pen and Duterte and xenophobia and other ills in South Africa); and bigotry and hate are back. Yet there is also hope. In many parts of the world, sections of the working class have fought back. This has seen movements of protests in some parts, attempts to revive unions in others and in some cases the re-emergence of left political parties and projects. But it is also a restructured working class, a working class that is fundamentally different from even the 1970s. New or different forms of organising happen next to the old. It is thus also a working class in which the past weighs like a nightmare on the present in organisational terms; experimenting with the new and different ways of organising, but also falling back into the old.

imageFascism on the march Mar 01 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group believes the best immediate response to Fascism is an internationalist working class movement of resistance in the form of a united front. Within this, we can put forward a libertarian communist solution to the many crises of capitalism. We participate in the Campaign Against Racism and Fascism because, although it has severe flaws, it does some good work and is the only working class united front available to us at the moment. We hope to contribute to solving its problems, most importantly its isolation from the union movement, and fight for a world where Fascism is consigned permanently to the dustbin of history.

textNew pamphlet: Beating Fascism: Anarchist anti-fascism in theory and practice Oct 24 Kate Sharpley Library 1 comments

"Beating Fascism" is a new compilation dealing with the anarchist critique of fascist ideas and the practical ways their deadly authoritarian project has been challenged. It goes from the 'People's commandos' who fought against Mussolini's bootboys, through the Spanish Civil War, to the anti-fascist activists of the eighties, nineties and beyond who took up the challenge from a new crop of boneheads.
