As Anarchist Radio Berlin we present you an interview on Charlottesville, the murder of Heather Heyer and antifascist perspectives.

On August 11 and 12th, fascists of different stripes organized a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, they called "Unite the Right". Counter protesters and antifascists mobilized and managed to practically stop this ugly event. A fascist then drove his car into a group of counter protesters, wounding more than a dozen and killing Heather Heyer in the process.

As Anarchist Radio Berlin we had the opportunity of talking to a comrade from the US who participated in the antifascists protests. We talked about the Unite the Right event as such, about the different forms of fascists gathering there, about the counterprotests, the tragic murder of Heather Heyer and the medic and trauma facilities made available by antifascists groups. Also we tackle the topic of people discussing arming themselves and how to go forward from here.
