After today’s incident in South London, we can expect the whipping up of tension and recruits heading to the fascists and a further ratcheting of UK politics in an authoritarian right wing direction. Without being at all alarmist, we need to recognise that a change in the situation has occurred. Its incumbent on all of us to reconsider our political commitment – to community and workplace organising, to anti-capitalist politics and to fighting despair with hope and vision. We need also re-commit to anti-fascism and the pressing need to combat those who blame scapegoats and minorities rather than the boss class for the social crisis. We need people on the militant anti-fascist mobilisation on Saturday this Newcastle and we need some serious thinking and commitment to building effective opposition from our side. No Pasaran!
iALERTA! iALERTA! iANTIFASCISTA!
