Throughout August 2018, #AllOutAugust actions and mass mobilizations took place, bringing into the streets thousands of people against an attempt by the far-Right to rebuild a broad, big tent street movement following the abysmal failure of Unite the Right in Charlottesville, 2017. In Providence, Portland, Berkeley, Washington DC, Charlottesville, Chapel Hill, and across Canada and the US, thousands faced down against both the far-Right, and violent, militarized police that acted as a defacto protection force for fascist paramilitary violence.
We did a banner drop this morning in remembrance of the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht–the “November Pogrom” in which German nationalists, under orders from the Nazi regime, murdered, raped, and brutalized thousands of Jews and desecrated over 1,200 synagogues. #cancelfascism pic.twitter.com/UoMQqNgnWa

In the face of mass resistance, far-Right forces are retreating back into localized battles (such as around Confederate monuments) and communities they feel they have a base of support within (such as in the South or rural Pacific Northwest). Some formations, such as Identity Evropa, are attempting to infiltrate and gain a foothold within the Republican Party, while ‘lone wingnuts’ such as Patrick Little, attempt to run for office. Meanwhile, mainstays like Joey Gibson continue to drift from protest to protest, hopping on whatever bandwagon will have him.

#AntifascistFall: We Will Out Live Them
Last Friday, a gang of “Proud Boys,” under police protection, staged a violent homophobic assault on anti-racist activists on the streets of NYC’s Upper East Side. This latest attack follows a sharp spike in anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, and xenophobic violence around the world since the November 9, 2016 election, from Chemnitz to Charlottesville.
November 9th also marks the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht – the “November Pogrom” in which German nationalists, under orders from the highest levels of the Nazi regime, murdered, raped, and brutalized thousands of Jews and desecrated over 1,200 synagogues.
But today, Jews are fighting back, as we always have. And today, in the spirit of centuries of our peoples’ resistance to racism, fascism, and carceral capitalism, we call on Jews everywhere – together with our allies – to join in a global wave of action to #CancelFascism this November 8-11.
We are Jews of the Diaspora, grandchildren of the Shoah, heirs to the antifascist resistance. Today, we say that a pogrom against any of us is a pogrom against all of us.
Our blood isn’t cheap: Violence against our communities will not be ignored. Violence against racial, religious, sexual, and gender minorities will not go unchallenged. Nor will the government that sanctions this violence, the church that blesses it, or the ruling class that profits from it.
On November 8-11, we will sing out and celebrate the survival of our peoples. We will say Kaddish for those who gave their lives in the fight against fascism. We will engage in acts of Kherem and ritually excommunicate those Jews who aid and abet the fascists of our time. And we will march on the institutions, the political parties, and the private businesses that collaborate with their genocidal agenda.
At the same time, we will show the world that the real threat to our security as Jews isn’t our Muslim neighbors, but “Western Chauvinists,” Christian supremacists, and white nationalists – the would-be pogromists of our day.
Starting now and continuing through 5779 and beyond, we will (re)build an international network of anti-fascist Jews and our allies. From the streets where we live to the places we work and play, we will organize to defend all of our communities from those who would exterminate us.
We invite you to join us in the fight: For a world without pogroms. For a future without fascism.
