Capture the flag part 3!

Originally posted on Anti-Fascist Network:

Following previous victories against the British Golden Dawn and the EDL, we now have a third result in our ongoing game of anti-fascist capture the flag. At the Swansea ‘White Pride’ demonstration on April 5th, plucky members of Bristol Anti-Fascists ran out from the crowd opposing the fascists and seized one of their Celtic cross neo-Nazi flags.

Review: Hooligan Dublin: Criminal Damage (EP)

hd2

The fourth EP from Ireland’s punk-rockers Hooligan is the most accomplished in the band’s catalogue to date. Criminal Damage features a whole range of talent including Cockney Rejects’ Van Frater on guitar and bass; Decca Wade and Nicky Buck (original and latter Angelic Upstarts) on drums; while Wade and Mond Cowie (another Upstart) share the production duties.

My First Poetry Recording: ‘The Path of Least Resistance’ on the 0161 Anti-Fascist Festival Compilation

161

Recorded my first poem ‘The Path of Least Resistance’ yesterday for the 0161 fest compilation (track 64). Vocals are a little low compared to some other tracks, due to my shoddy equipment and being asked to submit the track at the last minute, but I think it turned out half-decent and the response has been great so far. It’s an honour to be part of this project along with legendary bands such as The Oppressed and Angelic Upstarts.

The main intention of this compilation is to raise proceeds for anti-fascists crews in Europe ahead of the festival taking place this coming May. Pay as much/little as you like for it.

Review: Virus Syndicate: The Swarm

VirusSyndicate

Hip-Hop in its purest form — stripped-down, boom-bap beats with razor-sharp delivery and poignant lyrics — seems to have taken a backseat in the UK in favour of its grime and dubstep dimensions. I don’t envy how the popularity of the subgenres has grown exponentially, but I do find it frustrating that only a handful of artists are unapologetically and uncompromisingly committed to making Hip-Hop, without any of the experimental baggage.

SWP not welcome in Liverpool

Originally posted on Liverpool Class Action:

The SWP found out today that their rape-apologist bullshit has got no place in Liverpool. Their stall outside the NUS conference in Liverpool (it was outside because they’d already been refused entry to the conference) was turned over and their literature scattered to the wind. Let this be a lesson to them – we won’t accept their rape apologism here.

They spouted the usual crap: “sectarian”, “political nobodies”. So fucking what? More tellingly though, they made accusations of “sending men to intimidate women”. 50% of the people involved in tossing their shit papers on the floor and ripping down their shit posters were women. What was the point of that? Nobody else was there to hear these accusations. Were they just trying to convince themselves, wilfully ignoring or erasing women in some bizarre attempt to make themselves look better somehow?

And worst of all, one Swappie was screaming at us…

White Pride and Race Hate

Originally posted on Trouble and Squeak:

Not only do I have a sense of guilt and shame, but there is a feeling of betrayal. The date was Friday the 4th of April and the following were the words posted on Swansea Uaf’s Facebook page, “There is no White Pride rally in Swansea tomorrow. Unlike last year, no permission was given. A victory for anti fascists!” Images were posted proclaiming “victory” for the anti-fascist movement and saying that in view of it, “the planned [counter-]demo at 11:00 in Castle Square” had been called off.

By midday today (Saturday the 5th) around forty National Front members were gathered in Castle Square, waving flags, speaking through a megaphone and chanting. Unite Against Fascism were not present and neither were any of their members as they had gone to Cardiff where an anti-Bedroom Tax protest was taking place. The organisation whose sole purpose is to fight fascism, had given fascists a…
