Meetup every Sunday to hang out with like-minded folks and discuss being an ally, confronting prejudice, dismantling oppression, and acting in solidarity, plus all the latest news and events.

Hosted by Anti Racist Action Victoria

Why anti-racist action? It started in October 2012 when a group called We Are Change Victoria invited a well-known white supremacist to speak at a rally. WAC got aggressive when we called a counter-protest, but we didn't back down. If we have to, we'll picket them anytime.

We're keeping an eye out for threats to our friends and neighbours. If you see something - say something!

Anti-Racist Action has four points of unity:

1.We go where they go. Whenever fascists are organizing or active in public, we're there. We don't believe in ignoring them or staying away from them. Never let the Nazis have the street!
2.We don't rely on the cops or courts to do our work for us. This doesn't mean we never go to court, but the cops uphold white supremacy and the status quo. They attack us and everyone who resists oppression. We must rely on ourselves to protect ourselves and stop the fascists.

3.Non-sectarian defence of other anti-fascists. In ARA, we have a lot of different groups and individuals. We don't agree about everything and we have a right to differ openly. But in this movement an attack on one is an attack on us all. We stand behind each other.

4.We support abortion rights and reproductive freedom. ARA intends to do the hard work necessary to build a broad, strong movement against racism, sexism, anti-immigrant, anti-indigenous sovereignty, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, discrimination against the disabled, the oldest, the youngest, and the most oppressed people. We want a classless, free society. We intend to win!
