Three anti-fascists with decades of experiences between them will be sharing their insights into anti-fascist activism in the UK. From street brawls with the National Front in the 80s through to smashing the neo-Nazi terror outfit National Action in the 2010s, this talk will cover what was done, why it was done and what can be learned from the successes and mistakes. This presentation will convey lessons and experiences militant anti-fascists have gained from attempting to organise against a major far-right political party and a large far-right street movement, following the collapse of the legendary Anti-Fascist Action. No Platform and Antifa tried to oppose the British National Party (BNP) but ultimately failed to stop it from gaining nearly a million votes. But Antifa did have a number of successes against far-right street groups which tried to launch or exist in the same period. Then as the BNP imploded the English Defence League (EDL) emerged pulling thousands onto the streets to oppose Muslims. The Anti-Fascist Network wasn’t able to hold back the EDL but had some successes tackling smaller EDL splinter groups. We look at what these groups managed to achieve, from broken Nazis to broken Nazi groups and the lessons antifascists can learn from them. **Childcare will be provided!**

Rosa Luxemburg was a Polish-Jewish Marxist anti-war activist and revolutionary socialist. In 1906, she penned The Mass Strike, a book on working class power and strategy for overthrowing capitalism and building revolutionary socialism. This eight-part treatise pulls lessons from the Russian revolution, relying on historical fact as opposed to speculation. Throughout, she rigorously addresses the subject of General Strike and its application in the struggle of the working class worldwide throughout the capitalist era. This information session will cover in brief detail the entirety of Luxemburg's The Mass Strike. After a meet-and-greet, we will start with a presentation of the history discussed in the book. The presentation will include a clip from a present day working class heroine, Teresa Gutierrez. Gutierrez is a Mexican lesbian and leader in Workers World Party who has been at the forefront of May Day demonstrations in New York City for over a decade. From there, we will move onto the analysis of and conclusions arrived at by Luxemburg. Then we will hold break-out discussions on building the struggle for the liberation of the working class and oppressed peoples worldwide beyond May Day. We will conclude by reconvening with discoveries and insights from our discussions. Refreshments will be provided.
