Brazil: Activists warn of fascist surge

On Sunday night the neighbourhood of Jardim América, Belo Horizonte found its horizon bounded by that orange cloud characteristic of a major fire — a two-storey building was in the process of burning to the ground.

Spain: Nazi given community service after explosives found at home

A hardcore Nazi who posed with heavy weaponry shooting anti-fascist signs and built up an arsenal of guns and explosives is a free man today having been handed a community service sentence — as opposed to the 11 years in jail for terror offences that had been requested by prosecutors.

National Action Rebranded: Neo-nazis are trying it on again

Banned neo-nazi group National Action (NA) is attempting to re-establish itself using the name National Socialist Network.

Tear-gas attack by riot cops in Calais

The recent anti-migrant demonstration by the National Front and other assorted fascist backwash is among a rising tide of violence against migrants. People asserting their freedom to move across borders are met with a mix of state and fascist aggression. Around fortress Europe, borders are institutions of crisis and conflict.

On Saturday, January the 30th, fascists from the Nazi National Front (NF), the South East Alliance (SEA) and other affiliated groups are descending once again on the coastal town of Dover. Their aim is to protest for the closure of the borders to migrants, particularly those arriving from the war-torn areas of the Middle East and Africa.

On the 7th February 2015, the English Defense League will be coming out in their hordes to rally in Dudley, capitalising on the recent shootings at the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris.
