Neither with prisons, nor with laws, fascism can be smashed only in the streets

From Anarchist Political Organisation-Federation of Collectives, Greece

On September 18th, 2013 the paramilitary squad of golden dawn proceeds to a murderous attack in Keratsini (Athens), resulting to the assassination of the antifascist Pavlos Fyssas, after being stabbed to the heart by the member of golden dawn, G. Roupakias. This was another one of the numerous murderous attacks the paramilitary gang of golden dawn made against anarchists, leftists, syndicalists, refugees and migrants, squats and self-organized and occupied spaces. Following the State’s policies and the medias dictations and protecting the Capital’s interests, the fascists always strike against the most violently exploited parts of society, against the revolutionary movements that are explicitly targeted by State’s repression.

TOTW: Eco-fascism?

?

Eco-fascism. It's something I hear lots about but understand little of. I've read these recent essays, these recent mainstream news articles, and a head-spinning number of tweets.

I've asked questions left, right and centre and I'm none the wiser. And so I'm reaching out to you, anews commenters, to help me make sense of it all.

Anarchy Against Unity: Five Theses on Anti-fascist Left Unity Today

1. The left-wing of ideology obfuscates as much as its right-wing counterpart.

The left operates according to a calcified logic that veils the nature of the social order around us. Regarding anti-fascism, this confusion manifests within the context of a false dichotomy imagined between fascism and democracy. The master plan is that anti-fascism must function immediately as a means of restoring capitalism to its more “human” state, demonstrable trajectories of fascism as an outgrowth of liberalism be damned. Other instances of muddled theory include reductive frameworks that posit class as the sole site of struggle, the obsession with consciousness raising, and an unyielding faith in the democratic principle.
