United Front, a real live neo-Nazi group, is trying to organize and recruit members in Victoria, as well as in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto. Anti Racist Action is here to be a pain in their ass. Now ARA organizer Zoe Blunt is being targeted as an "anti-white racist" and a "man-hating lesbian." Join the push-back against their threats and abuse.

Why anti-racist action in Victoria? 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 aggro when we called a counter-protest, but we didn't back down, and we turfed them out.

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

Hosted by Anti Racist Action Victoria.

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!
