November 9th was a busy day for antifa. Fascist demonstrations crushed, blocked, disrupted, or shut down nazi rallies in multiple countries. Nazi groups chose November 9th to hold rallies because it is the 75 year anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “night of broken glass,” a two day series of pogroms that initiated the holocaust.
Stockholm, Sweden: 400-500 anti-fascists showed up to counter protest a rally that was put on by nazi party Swedish Resistance Movement in support of the Golden Dawn nazi party in Greece. There were two injuries, one antifa and one nazi. The nazi rally was heavily disrupted and only able to continue because of police protection. Local activists stressed how important it is for the world to know there is a growing fascist party in Sweden.
London, England: Anti fascists dominated a neo nazi rally, click here for their full report. Their action was intentionally small and non-public, and the results were top notch.
Duisburg, Germany: Anti fascists had a spontaneous counter rally to the fascists. Not only did antifa shut down the nazis with their voices, but they also blocked the nazi march at two key points. This is not the first time a fascist march has been completely prevented recently in Germany by antifa.
Kansas City, Missouri (USA): Nazis (NSM) staged a rally at the Jackson county courthouse, but were met with loud and strong opposition and were outnumbered by at least 250 people. There was no possibility for anyone to hear their speeches and they left frustrated and angry. Police arrested one counter protestor for throwing change in the street, and the ACLU is considering taking the police department to court over their unlawful restrictions on counter protestors.
Warsaw, Poland: Fascists planned for marches but instead postponed them until November 11th. However, a very strong anti fascist march took place and stood strong together against nationalism.
Madrid, Spain: Antifascists held a rally to commemorate Carlos Palomino who was killed by a nazi five years ago. At least 1000 were in attendance.
Moscow, Russia: Police detained participants of the anti-fascist rally on red square in Moscow. The action took place on the international day against fascism, racism and anti-Semitism on the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht (the initiation of the holocaust): http://grani.ru/Society/Xenophobia/Antisemitic/m.220996.html
