ALWAYS ANTIFASCIST – FUNDRAISER FOR KIM – IMPRISONED ANTIFA

Kim, a great friend/comrade from our hometown of Hamilton is currently doing time in a UK clink for anti-fascists actions and he needs our support.

As such, any and all monies from the sale of the Action Sedition / Spanner  “History Lessons” 7″  Bandcamp download will go directly to Kim…it’s just $5.00 (or more if you like!) for 4 top-notch left-radical (and, of course, anti-fascist) political punk rock tunes…

DON’T DELAY, BUY TODAY!

 

 

INFO ABOUT KIM

Raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Kim is an anarchist, political organizer, local shit- disturber, and all around solid human being. An indispensible member of the community, he’s been involved in everything from anti-police struggles to workplace organizing, from anarchist publishing to anti-racism work and so much more.

Seeking to explore and gain experience of struggle elsewhere, Kim moved to London, England two years ago. Immediately throwing himself into political work abroad, he became active in various London-based projects. A committed anti-fascist, Kim quickly became a staple in the London antifa scene. Organizing to confront all manifestations of contemporary fascism, he routinely participated in counter-demonstrations to disrupt the gatherings of fascists.

At one such demonstration, a physical confrontation erupted and Kim along with several others, were arrested in relation to the beating of fascists. As of January 2016, Kim was charged and sentenced to two months in prison as a result of the incident.

To help support Kim while he serves his sentence, as well as for when he gets released, he needs funds. If you’re interesting in providing support (anything is appreciated!), check out one of the several upcoming fundraising events in Hamilton.

If you’re interested in throwing some funds his way, but cannot make any of the events get in touch by contacting: jailsolidarity1312@gmail.com

If you would like to write to Kim, send your letters to: writetokiminlondon@gmail.com (responses will be scanned and emailed back)

*Here’s Spanner, in Hamilton, doing the entirely appropriate ‘Always Antifascist,’ one of the songs on the 7″ … maybe you can even spot Kim in the crowd!

ALWAYS ANTIFASCIST

It’s a tired old story when times are harsh
the fascists and racists go on the march
with twisted faces and ideas
misplaced anger, ignorance and fear
They go for easy targets and never aim high
Believing all the bullshit and swallowing all the lies
yeah they can shout loud but they’ve nothing to say
just the same old bigotry that never goes away
Repackaged as radical, new and improved
but so many times it’s been proved
they’ve got nothing to offer but division and hate
and power and strength to the nation state

Raised fists antifascists help the fightback spread
and the only good fascist is one that is dead
Militants in resistance we know our enemies
and we know that our best weapon is solidarity
Police and fascists march side by side
it’s always been the way, it can’t be denied
waving batons or St George crosses
they’re working for the rich and the same bosses
So there’s plenty of violence to protect “Free speech”
for the fascist scum and the filth they preach
their “right to protest” is always ensured
while antifascists feel the force of the law

Liberals without a clue
trying to tell “the movement” what to do
follow the leaders from a to b
and let’s pretend we got unity
Stirring speeches keep people still
as designated protest pens are filled
miles from the fascists behind police rails
playing it safe and doomed to fail
We know that fighting fascism means sometimes we have to fight
not pacified, dead end demos where everything is so polite
It’s not about being macho, elite or supertough
but a look at the history of fascism should tell us enough
It’s confidence and strength will grow if it is unopposed
so with barricades and whatever it takes we’ll make sure the road is closed
Wherever they start we have to stop them to make sure they have no chance
there’s many ways to beat the fascists and push back their advance
We’ll never accept the rise of the right or fascists on our streets
and we won’t follow leaders on the long road to defeat
In memory of fallen comrades we will never forget
nor do we forgive so our rage is fueled to destroy the fascist threat

*Here’s Action Sedition, in Hamilton, doing the entirely appropriate ‘Classe Contre Classe,’ one of the songs on the 7″… Kim is in there somewhere!

CLASSE CONTRE CLASSE

Class against class
We will always fight on
Class against class
We will never back dow

The local factory is shutting down
Hundreds of jobs are lost once again
Anger is building inside of us
Families find themselves on the streets

Between killing, drinking or shouting
I’ve decided to fight for my dignity
They’ve humiliated my class
Time for revenge has finally arrived

CHORUS
Welfare is not enough
Landlords won’t accept credit
It’s a return to underemployment
Precariousness enriches them

Unions do nothing
Infected with bureaucracy
The power of the bosses spreads
The more we scratch, the more rot we find

Class against class (x8)

Yet we don’t have much choice
If we want to break our chains
We must organize for the fight
Capitalism must be eliminated

We will win through the struggle
The bourgeoisie and its servants
We will overthrow the balance of power
Because there can be no peace between classes
