Antiracism – Alerta, Antifa

antifa_stencil_peace_cnd_logo-555pxAntifa is the name given to anti-fascist networks around the world since the rise of fascism in Europe. It is above all a call — an alert — for the self-defense of communities targeted by neo-Nazis and the far Right when the state either no longer serves to protect them or is undertaking such attacks itself.

It involves three dimensions: practical, on-the-ground solidarity of diverse communities; scrutiny of neo-Nazi and far Right organizing efforts; and longer-term attention to the preparation of the ground for the legitimation of violence.

There is only one aim to antifa actions: autonomous self-defense undertaken for and by diverse communities, in the defense of that diversity.
