Print off these (8.5×11 & 11×15) posters and post them up wherever you see white nationalists encroaching. Put them up anywhere else you see fit to demonstrate that there is a growing movement opposing the fascist threat. While we think it is crucial for you to take part and please distribute these posters with us, we also encourage you to take precaution, go postering with a buddy, and look out for one another. Making a plan and committing to safe practices are important while we move forward and work to end fascism.
Staying safe goes beyond what you do when you’re outside. We cannot stress enough the importance of online security. Treat the internet as if it were a security camera live-streaming to the feds. Do not take any incriminating photos of yourself or anyone else nor share them on social media. Do not ever publish any kind of incriminating information, including writing about illegal actions you may have done, plan to do, saw anyone else do, or heard someone else might do. Do not share sensitive information, via internet or otherwise, with anyone who does not need to know. By involving extra people, you are creating risks for yourself, your crew, and those you are implicating. As you probably already know, the internet is not a private sphere — do your best to conceal your identity.

There are far too many antifascist prisoners around the world. And it’s important we show solidarity to everyone fighting against fascism, which looks like extending our full support to those facing repression. This can mean writing a letter or donating to a bail or commissary fund. As we all know, this is a global struggle so it’s important to express international solidarity and not only send a letter to an antifa prisoner in North America, but also to antifa prisoners around the world. Thanks to NYC Antifa we have a comprehensive global antifa prisoner list to offer. You can read through and decide who you might like to write to and who’s story you might like to share to spread the word about their situation.

There is a variety of roles people play in the struggle against fascism. As white supremacist violence is continuously perpetuated by the state with its prisons and endless police murders as well as by fascist far-right and alt-right groups, we must emphasize the need for community self-defense. This takes place on many different platforms, including legal and medical. We must learn to protect one another from potential threats and what to do when harm is dealt. Street medics have saved many lives at anti-fascist/anti-racist demos and counter-protests — they are the first to respond and they will have your back in ways EMS often will not. If you are interested in learning first aid, look into a medic-training. If you already have experience, organize a medic-training in your town and share your skills to help keep your community safe.
Another way to plug in: if you ever see an Identity Evropa poster up in your town, please do not hesitate to take it down. Their fascist propaganda will not have the effect that IE wants it to have if there is enough of us taking them down just as fast as they get put up. Here is what one looks like: https://twitter.com/IdentityEvropa
It’s important to learn about the fascist groups that we oppose so we can better understand them and figure out the best ways to stop them. It’s also important to learn about tactics and strategies of other antifascist groups around North America and all around the world. It is crucial to also learn about antifascist movements throughout history so that now, as we move forward, we can utilize what has worked in the past.
