What is the Anti-Fascist Archive?
This archive consists primarily of the literature, images and videos of Anti-Fascist Action and Red Action. However, there is also material from Workers’ Fight, the Anti-Nazi League and even from fascist groups such as the National Front.
If you want a taste of who AFA where, what they were about and what type of materials will be on this archive; give this video a watch:
Why the Archive?
I wrote my undergraduate dissertation (2011) on militant anti-fascism in the 1980s and 1990s. During my research I was privileged to have been given access to a wealth of images and literature which I thought I would share for everyone to see. Whilst histories and information is fairly widely available on the Anti-Nazi League, Anti-Fascist Action’s more peaceful rival, histories are only just being written on AFA. Information is fairly scarce and consigned to former activists atics and wardrobes but, with the archive, all can see it! I hope this blog encourages other histories and assists people in creating the historical accounts.
This archive will serve as a lasting dedication to all those who have fought fascism globally.
