Lessons from a successful united front: How to counter white supremacists

For a decade in the 1990s, the United Front Against Fascism brought together diverse communities to protest neo-Nazi agitators on the West Coast. Co-founder Luma Nichol discusses the key principles from that effective organizing. This history is more relevant than ever as bigots in the White House inspire a dramatic rise in violence against labor, Muslims, people of color, Jews, trans folk, immigrants & radicals.

Protest the white supremacist ‘No to Marxism in America’ rally

The bigotry, racism and violence that far-right organizers are bringing to Berkeley on August 27 cannot be allowed to go unanswered. Their event will be a magnet for white supremacists, Nazi enthusiasts, anti-Muslims and anti-Semites, feminist bashers, homo/transphobes, anti-communists, and immigrant-haters, all gathered under the theme “No to Marxism in America’. We want to build on Charlottesville, VA where 6,000 brave protesters shut down the neo-Nazi rally. Let’s stand shoulder to shoulder with those targeted by bigotry in a unified, orderly, and strong counter-demo. History has shown that by taking a stand we can stop the far right when they are still small. Ignoring them only encourages them!
