A CALL TO ACTION AGAINST FASCISM

a call to action against neo-nazis rally in washington dc on august 24th


THEY WILL NOT PASS! SHUT DOWN THE NEO-NAZIS IN D.C. AUGUST 24!
Smash the National Alliance's racist rally and white-power show!


On August 24th, the National Alliance is planning "Rock Against Israel":
a
demonstration of white supremacist Hitler-fetishists protesting against
the
white supremacist U.S. government's support of white supremacist religious

nuts in Israel. (Confused yet?) They plan to rally at the Capitol building

from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, and then meet for dinner and a white power concert

in the evening.

The National Alliance, probably the most organized and sophisticated
white-power
group in North America today, is calling for what they claim
will be 'the
largest gathering of white nationalists at the U.S. Capitol in
history'.
Obviously that's not true. Congress has a few more people than
the National
Alliance can pull out and they've been meeting there for a
hundred years
or more. But this probably will be the largest gathering of
self-confessed
and organized white supremacists there since the mass Klan
marches of the
20s.

While any time recently the nazis have tried to organize publically in angry

working-class towns, they have been shut down and chased out, they've been

given a free pass in DC so far. Over the past year they've held three

rallies at the Israeli embassy and two at the German embassy. Their last

rally had over 200 people with little to no organized opposition. This
has
to stop. August 24th will be a turning point.

We, as anti-fascists, are committed to planning a strong, militant, and

well-coordinated response to the fools this time around. We're tired of

seeing fascist movements keep growing because many dont take fascism and
the
possibility of its emergence seriously. Sure they're a long way from
taking
over the country, but 300 boneheads coming out to demonstrations,
building
bombs, dreaming about gas chambers and ethnic cleansing, is 300
too many.
Different fascist groups like the NA are now strategically orienting
towards
some of the struggles the left and rev forces have been organizing
around
(fighting corporations, globalization, supporting Palestinian resistance
and
anti-colonialism), and we're really bothered that they can get some

credibility doing that because many of the people involved in those issues

won't take a stand and shut them down.

We will be organizing in several different contingents with various risk

levels and levels of political and tactical unity. But the unifying thread

is that we all recognize the need for a physical resistance to fascism.
It
should be clear to people that we're not going down there because we
support
Bush's government or the Israeli government or any government for
that
matter. We're organizing with one purpose: to drive the nazis off
the
streets and undermine their confidence and ability to organize, or
even go
out into public without getting a boot to the head.


We call on all who agree with this purpose to endorse this call and begin

planning in their affinity groups for August 24th.
