The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund: Quarterly Report, September 2015

In June of this year, we launched the International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund.  The purpose was to raise a large “war chest” of money that could be made available to anti-fascists and anti-racists all over the world when they run into trouble because of their work combating hatred and need the support of their fellow antifa the most.

How it works: 

1) Anyone can make a proposal to use the fund by emailing us at: antifaintl@gmail.com

2) Any individual or group that donates at least $20U.S./€20/£15 becomes part of the crew that makes decisions regarding proposals the Fund receives.  Decisions are made by consensus or, if consensus is not forthcoming, by majority vote. 

In its first three months over $700 U.S. has been donated to the Fund from supporters in six different countries.  So far, we’ve donated about 40% of that to ant-racists in Germany, Spain, and the U.S. who’ve been injured or arrested as a direct result of standing up to bigots (the remaining amount placed in reserve).  Here’s where the money has gone so far:

Valentin is an anti-fascist from Bremen, Germany that defended himself and his friends against a planned assault by a gang of neo-nazis after a football match.  Valentin is now facing various charges for this “crime.”  More info about Valentin here.  Thanks to our friends at Fire and Flames for helping with the logistics of international monetary exchange!

Sergi is a Spanish anti-fascist currently facing a lengthy prison sentence for defending himself at a protest against a neo-nazi concert.  More info about Sergi here.

Stephen was charged with “breach of peace” for standing up against a KKK rally in Columbia, South Carolina, USA in July.  More info about Stephen here.

Eddien was also charged with various “crimes” for confronting the KKK at the same action Stephen attended.  As of this writing, Eddien is currently in prison awaiting trial.  More info about Eddien here.

Jeremiah was at a concert when two neo-nazis showed up and started making trouble.  Jeremiah confronted them and was nearly stabbed to death by one of the racist scumbags.  More info about Jeremiah here

Paul is a German anti-fascist who was arrested at a July anti-Pegida action for the “crime” of carrying a flag with a flagpole the police was decided was “too short.”  He’s been held in prison awaiting trial ever since.  More info about Paul here

At the current rate, the Fund could be providing support for over 20 anti-racist/anti-fascist activists in its first year.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

If you agree that fighting hate is not a crime; if you believe that anti-fascism is self-defence; and if you want to show real solidarity with your fellow antifa, please make a donation to The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund and encourage people you know to join you in donating.  You can donate via credit card here or via paypal to: antifaintl@gmail.com.  

Donations over  $8U.S./€7/£5 will get prizes!  A donation of at least $20U.S./€20/£15 gives you a voice in the funding decisions.

Please help us help our friends in the antifa movement!  Donate to the Fund and spread the word!

New System Update For Nintendo 3DS Available Now, Introduces Themes

Nintendo has released a new system update for Nintendo 3DS. Version 9.0.0-20U allows users to customize the design and sounds of the handheld’s HOME Menu.

Made with WordPress
The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund Quarterly Report: December 2015

The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund is designed to provide fast material support to anti-fascists and anti-racists around the world whenever they encounter trouble as a result of their stand against hate.

Anyone can make a proposal to use the Fund by emailing us at: antifaintl@gmail.com.  All decisions are made via consensus between all those who donated at least  $20U.S./€20/£15.  If consensus can’t be reached, the proposal is decided by a simple majority vote.

In its first six months, the fund has:
-received over $1700U.S./1600EUR in donations from supporters in eight countries
-supported two dozen anti-fascists in Australia, Belarus, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the U.S.
-received endorsements from The Torch Anti-Fascist Network (U.S.) and Föreningen Fånggruppen (Sweden)

Supporters can now make regular monthly contributions of any amount automatically by signing up here.  This is the best possible way to support the Fund and the anti-fascists and anti-racists it provides much-needed material aid to.

So who has the Fund supported so far?

1) Valentin is an anti-fascist in Bremen, Germany that was imprisoned for defending himself and his friends against an ambush by a gang of nazi scum. Valentin was released from prison in November 2015.  

Sergi is a Spanish anti-fascist currently facing a lengthy prison sentence for defending himself at a protest against a neo-nazi concert.  

Stephen was charged with “breach of peace” for standing up against a KKK rally in Columbia, South Carolina, USA in July. 

Eddien was also charged with various “crimes” for confronting the KKK at the same action Stephen attended.  Eddien was released from prison in September 2015. 

Jeremiah was at a concert when two neo-nazis showed up and started making trouble.  Jeremiah confronted them and was nearly stabbed to death by one of the racist scumbags.  

Paul is a German anti-fascist who was arrested at a July anti-Pegida action for the “crime” of carrying a flag with a flagpole the police was decided was “too short.”  He was released from prison in September 2015.  

Maxime Bugsel was a young anti-fascist from Bruay-La Buissière who was shot to death late one night in August 2015. We were honoured to be able to help his family pay for his funeral expenses.  

Vlad Lenko is an anti-fascist in Belarus currently serving a six-year prison sentence for defending himself against neo-nazis.  We contributed to his legal defence, which hopes to mount an appeal of his brutal sentence. 

An anti-fascist woman from Melbourne, Australia who was fined $1200 for her part in confronting the racist UPF in Bendigo in August 2015.  Thanks to us and other donors, her fine was paid in full!  

Oleg Serebrennikov is a Russian anti-fascist that was severely injured by nazi boneheads in 2004.  While he hasn’t let that stop him from standing against racism, his injuries have required expensive ongoing treatment that the Fund is helping him pay for.  

Joel is a Swedish anti-fascist that defended an peaceful anti-racist demonstration from a violent attack by neo-nazis.  Joel is currently serving a severe sentence for his heroism and is due to parole in 2017.  He also received a fine of 40000SEK, which we are helping him pay.  

The Kungsan 15 are fifteen Swedish anti-fascists who were charged with various “crimes” for defending themselves and others against attacks by neo-nazis at an anti-racist march in Kungsan, Sweden.  Two were acquitted but 13 of them received severe sentence of four-to-eighteen months in prison plus a cumulative total of 350,000SEK in fines. 

HELP US HELP OUR BROTHERS & SISTERS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HATE!  If you agree that fighting hate is not a crime; if you believe that anti-fascism is self-defence; and if you want to show real solidarity with your fellow antifa, please make a donation to The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund and encourage people you know to join you in donating.

You can make a one-time donation via credit card here or via paypal here

Reprogramming Stem Cells Could Soon Lead Us to a World Without Paralysis

Scientists have developed a mechanism to directly reprogram stem cells into motor neurons. The development gives hope to the estimated 6,000 people in the US diagnosed with ALS each year.

THE NEW FACE OF THE $20

U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has announced that Harriet Tubman will be replacing President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, marking the first time an African American will be pictured on any US currency. But this is not the only change in currency.

Additionally, the back of the $10 bill is slated to include the images of suffragette women leaders from American history: Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucretia Mott. The reverse side of the $5 bill will feature Marian Anderson, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King Jr. Click here to read more about these changes. 

This is the most diverse display of figures from American history on paper money since Pocahontas’s image was featured on the back of the twenty note in the 1860s and the 119 years since Martha Washington graced the front of the $1 silver certificate.

To help you learn more about the life of Harriet Tubman, who has been awarded the great honor of sole occupant on the face of the $20, here are a list of titles about her life.
