London Anti-Fascists will be supporting the demonstration from Kent Anti-Racist Network to again oppose the presence of neo-nazi groups on our streets.
In January 30th around 220 London Anti-Fascist supporters were prevented from attending the demonstrations due to an incident at Maidstone Service station with around 50 far-right hooligans.
We will be going straight to Dover this time to ensure we get there. Please email us with subject line: COACH2DOVER to secure a place on the coach to our email address: email@example.com

On Saturday 12 September racists and fascists from across the UK will descend on Dover to hold a protest calling for the border to be closed. An attempt to take advantage of the anti-migrant hysteria whipped up by the government and the right-wing press, the march will be attended by up to twelve different far-right groups, many with open neo-Nazis in their ranks. If they demonstrate unopposed there could be serious consequences for any recently arrived migrants they come across.
Recent developments in Calais have focused attention on the state of the UK and European border regime. Unfortunately it is the right who are dominating headlines with commentators comparing migrants to cockroaches and politicians queuing up to appear the “toughest on migration”. Media channels have been filled with racist and nationalist justifications for a border regime which is already responsible for over 2000 deaths in the Mediterranean this year and 11 deaths in the past 2 months at Calais.
We reject the politics of xenophobia, and are disgusted by those who seek to dehumanise migrants. We see the so-called “migrant crisis” as a humanitarian crisis, of migrants uprooted by war and poverty coming into contact with a brutal and inhumane border regime, engineered to kill. We are calling for anti-racists and anti-fascists to join us in Dover to stand in solidarity with migrants, demand an end to borders and stand up to the racists seeking to sow division and hatred.
Our mobilisation joins other campaigns fighting racism, nationalism and the border regime including convoys heading to Calais with much needed resources and campaigns against immigration raids, deportations and detention centres.
The far-right protest will be attended by extremist groups such as the South East Alliance – a splinter group from the EDL – and the neo-Nazi National Front and North West Infidels. When these groups are given space to march, they attack and racially abuse people, but they can be stopped. In Liverpool recently anti-fascists turned out in their hundreds and prevented a neo-Nazi march from taking place. We need to do the same again in Dover, to show that migrants are welcome but racists are not!
London Anti-fascists are organising coaches from London to Dover to support the Anti-Fascist Network protest:
Solidarity with Calais migrants, against racism and fascism!

Jewdas will be there to oppose this march.

Outside the US Embassy
David Lane was a founding member of American neo-Nazi terror group The Order. He died in 2007 serving a 150 year prison sentence for his neo-Nazi activities. When The Order murdered liberal Jewish talk show host Alan Berg, Lane was the getaway driver. Lane was also a member of the Ku Klux Klan and coined the infamous “14 words” slogan, popular on the far-right.
On Saturday 23 May neo-Nazis will gather outside the US embassy to pay their respects to this racist piece of shit. This will be the third neo-Nazi protest supporting terrorists to take place outside the US embassy in the past six months. We say enough is enough, fascist events in central London need to end.
We are calling on anti-fascists from across the south east to join us in showing these muppets they cannot hold protests in London unopposed. We will not let scum like Lane be remembered as anything other than a fascist thug who did the world a favour when he departed this mortal coil. Fuck him and the fascist scum who want to celebrate him.
More details on the far-right protests are available on libcom.org.

Blackhorse Road station
On 9 May the EDL hope to make their return to Walthamstow in East London. Their reasons for marching have become redundant and irrelevant; an EDL march is one thing: a violent, racist mob which seek to intimidate, harass, and attack communities in the name of nationalism.
They state that they intend to “make it clear we CAN and WILL protest in any town or city in this great country of ours!”. The last time the EDL attempted a march in Walthamstow they were met by fierce community resistance which refused the limits imposed by both the police and polite protest and went ahead to meet them with force. It was a disastrous and embarrassing defeat for the EDL and an example of the collective strength of black, brown, and white working class people fighting against a common enemy.
The decision to return to Walthamstow could not come at a more ill-advised time for the EDL. Their call out has been met with derision and criticism from across the far-right and from within the ranks of the EDL itself. One racist Facebook group have called it “the dumbest idea we’ve heard in a long time”, adding “last time there were a good few hundred lads who could defend themselves. They are all long gone”. With the loss of any semblance of competent leadership, and the diminishing morale of their support base, the EDL is on it’s last legs.
It’s not all good news though – the EDL is still able to attract several hundred supporters to their national demos. The splinter groups they have spawned and the political space they have opened up has contributed to a massive upswing in far-right street activity across the UK in recent years – much of it openly fascist. We must continue to organise and build a militant anti-fascist movement capable of meeting these threats head on.
On 9 May we believe we have an important opportunity to deliver one of the final blows to the EDL and finally wipe this decrepit movement off the streets. We are calling for large scale mobilisation to prevent the EDL march from taking place, by all means necessary. We are calling to #BLOCKEDL in Walthamstow. Help spread the word and start making plans.
