Who makes the nazis? Fighting fascism today

hosted by International Socialist Network
Saturday 2nd August, 1pm,
University of London Union (ULU), Malet St, London WC1E 7HY

With the rise of UKIP and the emergence of a number of small but violent fascist groups like Britain First from the fragmenting of the English Defence League (EDL), new questions are facing activists trying to create a grassroots and vernacular anti-racist and anti-fascist culture. The International Socialist Network will be hosting an open discussion and debate on these issues, from organisation and tactics to anti-raids and migrant solidarity, in the hope of generating new ideas and forming links among anti-fascists.
