Hello, friend, I'm new to the movement and I was wondering if you could recommend any specific antifa readings? Thank you!

Sure! Here’s some of the books I‘ve read on it. 

These are mostly first-hand accounts from UK antifascists:
No Retreat: The Secret War Between Britain’s Anti-Fascists and the Far Right by Dave Hann, Steve Titzey

Beating the Fascists: The Untold Story of Anti-Fascist Action by Sean Birchall

Bash the Fash: Anti-Fascist Recollections 1984-93 by K. Bullstreet

Some books about older antifascist struggles:
Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell

The Ghetto Fights by Marek Edelman

Also, I have Militant Anti-Fascism: A Hundred Years of Resistance, which looks more like an international overview, but I haven’t read it yet.

There were also some good articles online about antifa recently but I can’t find them now :/ Any followers care to add any links?

Many of you are just now becoming familiar with Milo Yiannopolous.

Many of my friends and I have been dealing with him in some capacity or another for years now.

He’s not a “provocateur”, he’s a neo-Nazi recruiter. His “speeches” are training rallies for teaching college assholes how to recognize and harass their vulnerable classmates. His recent sessions have focused on “how to spot a tranny” where he outs a trans student at the school, and “weeding out illegals” where he outs undocumented students and teaches douchbags how to report them to an increasingly hostile and violent immigration system.

His core supporters are radicalized white boys who spend their time on message boards building elaborate fantasies about violence. These collection of boards are the same ones that Dylann Roof (Charleston church shooter, 9 dead), Elliot Rodger (Isla Vist shooter, 6 dead), and Alexandre Bissonnette (Quebec mosque shooter, 6 dead) were active on. One shot a medic two weeks ago at a protest.

This isn’t about speech: he’s showing people how to hurt their peers by hurting one on stage. He promotes a platform of genocide. This isn’t about disagreement. He’s not proposing an acceptable alternative. He’s promoting, and training, for an ethnic cleansing.
