Answering the call for a week of antifascist outreach, street art, and taking over of public space, antifascists in Minnesota hit the streets!
The first week of September, Antifa 161 & MASS Appeal answered an international call for a week of anti-fascist actions in the form of banner drops, distributing agit-prop, and other forms of demonstrating solidarity with communities fighting fascism worldwide.
Autonomous actions were taken by various entities. Banner drops happened in Minneapolis, Richfield, & Duluth along with other acts of claiming antifa zones. Several flyers and anti-fascist zines were distributed to free libraries across the Twin Cities. Several crews went on street cleaning missions and removed fascist stickers, and replaced them with anti-fascist ones.
The Twin Cities, Antifa 161, & MASS Appeal will not give space to the fascists (in all forms) that are trying to intimidate, incarcerate, or violate our communities. We have claimed our territory, and we will maintain and defend our zones.
We stand in solidarity with all our comrades that have been taking to the streets to fight the rising tide of fascism.
Sometimes anti-social, but forever Anti-Fascist!
