The Alt-Right has long ago proven their proclivity to violence. As such, dialogue and discussion should never be an option for anti-fascists. Videos from Saturday show multiple counter-protesters engaging in certainly well-intended but ultimately futile attempts at reason with Kyle Broussard and others, who has been documented attacking anti-fascist protesters. Other videos show anti-fascists in black bloc attire standing directly in front of Proud Boys simply filming them with their phone, only to have their phone knocked out of their hands and then their head knocked as well. Dialogue, appeals to reason, and cameras have have more often left us vulnerable to their violent assaults. The time is now to put down your camera and pick up your hands.
This is part two of our interview with Hex, an activist and member of the General Defense Committee who the Alt-Right tried to murder on Inauguration Day outside of a Milo Yiannopoulos. Here continues talking about his feelings of restorative justice, but also gets into Anarchist tactics and how radicals can use Public Records Requests to their advantage.
This is a call out to anarchists and anti-capitalists to converge on the Refuse Fascism rally & march at Jamison Square, in Portland, OR at 2PM this Saturday, November 4th.
From It's Going Down
We do not undertake this task joyously. Those in the anarchist milieu that have interacted with people from the Cleveland scene in the last few years know that we are not prone to get involved in personal conflicts and cause “drama,” and avoid it as much as we can. We are also not very apt to air our collective decisions, particularly when they involve other groups, publicly. But, with this said, this moment, and this specific situation is an exception to this rule. Over the past 8 months we have watched as an organization known as Great Lakes Antifa has caused problems, not only within other cities, but within Cleveland as well, following a pattern of behavior that is dangerous and deceptive. Over the past week this situation has hit a point of critical mass, with threats and recriminations being articulated by a number of different groups, which have forced us to have to articulate an otherwise internal decision publicly, and explain why we will not work with Great Lakes Antifa or anyone associated with them.

From Alternet by Alexander Reid Ross (September 28, 2017)
Witnesses recall smoke bombs, Nazi salutes and chants of "blood and soil."
Together, they raised their arms in a salute of "Sieg hiel." On Sunday, September 24, about 25 men in masks and balaclavas descended on an anarchist book fair in Houston. The group call itself Patriot Front and is loosely affiliated with Vanguard Front, a fascist organization that includes Heather Heyer's murderer, James Alex Fields, as one of its members. They rushed the door of a multicultural community center, igniting a pair of smoke bombs. Witnesses say the assault was led by construction worker and area neo-Nazi, William Fears.
