Report Back from the Front Lines of Boston Common
boston_antifa_03.jpgIn the time after Charlottesville, we are a movement in mourning.

When we learned that far-Right groups (including some present at Charlottesville) were set to descend on the Boston Common in the name of “free speech,” we formed plans to shut it down. As the number of counter-protesters intending to combat the event grew, a multiracial antifascist crew was assembled for the purpose of blocking fascist access to the event and defending our neighbors and community members, if needed.

Boston Rallies Against the far-Right: The Future of Anti-Fascism?
blackrose01.jpgDespite the efforts of the fascists and white supremacists to rebrand themselves after their attacks in Charlottesville, 40,000 counter-protesters turned out in Boston on Saturday to oppose their so called “free speech rally” in the Boston Common. The counter-protesters outnumbered the fascists about 1,000 to 1, a clear improvement since the previous such event in Boston on May 13, when similar forces were able to take to the streets without significant numbers in opposition.

Report Back From Boston: Antifascists Win August 19th
boston_antifascist_rally_06.jpgIn the wake of the right-wing terrorist attack in Charlottesville, Boston experienced widespread sympathy and support for antifascism on a scale never before seen in a city with an ugly reputation for racism. Exactly a week after the events in Virginia, the Alt-Right organizer of the “Boston Free Speech Rally” planned to move forward with holding the event which would provide a platform for controversial figures of the Alt-Right (Based Stickman, Joe Biggs, Augustus Invictus) and had the support of fascist and KKK groups who planned to attend.

Counter-Protesters Outnumber Alt-Right 1,000 to 1 On Boston Common
boston_common_counterprotest1.jpgAugust 19, 2017 - A handful of alt-right filth invaded Boston Common today for a "free speech" rally, but were driven out of the city by 40,000 counter-protesters. This in stark contrast to the previous such event in May in which antifascists were isolated and outnumbered by white supremacists.

Worcester, MA: Three Arrested in Charlottesville Solidarity March
1-11-1068x591.jpgOn Sunday August 13th, a crowd of several hundred people turned out in front of Worcester City Hall to show solidarity with those in Charlottesville, Virginia and the death of an anti-fascist protester who had been killed while demonstrating against white supremacists the day before. The morning before the rally, anarchists hung a banner saying “FIGHT BACK AGAINST WHITE SUPREMACY, #defendcville”, advertising the rally on a chain link fence outside the Worcester World Cup, a huge annual soccer tournament involving many different immigrant communities across the city.

Plantations Were Prisons: Mobilizing for the Aug. 19 Millions for Prisoners Human Rights March in Wash. DC
13amendment.jpgLaw Professor Angela A. Allen-Bell confronts the history and legacy of slavery head-on, asserting: "When it comes to African Americans, we have been incarcerated from the time we arrived in this country. Plantations were prisons. The change from incarceration on a plantation, to incarceration in custodial institutions, to incarceration where there are no physical limitations, but where one exists in a state of civic and political oppression, in my view, is nothing more than semantics. Mass incarceration started when slavery started."

Alt-Right Trolls are Posing as Boston Antifa on Facebook and Youtube
16832324_673340866171563_1957313865705741449_n.pngThe tightly-knit crews of friends and comrades involved in the grassroots antifascist organizing taking place in the Boston area have remained steadfast in their resolution and commitment to each other and the communities they’re part of, showing unwavering solidarity in supporting each other while overcoming recent obstacles. After an anti-President’s Day march was attacked by riot police in Worcester, 7 comrades were arrested on a range of bullshit charges (help the legal aid fund HERE).
