No Platform For Fascism Meeting + Self-Defense Workshop
With the recent events in Charlottesville and Boston, it is clear white nationalists, white supremacists, fascists, and the “alt-right” are coming together to further the spread of their hateful ideologies – and that we need to be ready to fight back!
At this event, participants will learn about current anti-fascist efforts in NYC, discuss how to build together an opposition movement, and build the skills and connections needed to join in this fight. This event will include a self-defense workshop, hosted by Pop Gym. This FREE workshop will include some introductory skills that will keep you feeling safe and will be an accessible, confidence-boosting time for all. Participants should wear clothing in which they are comfortable stretching and sweating.
No Platform For Fascism is a coalition of a number of NYC based anti-fascist groups united in the belief that the emboldened far-right and Trump administration represent a grave threat to the most marginalized of communities in America. We believe that there is not only no obligation to provide a platform for these hateful ideologies, but a duty to deny them such a platform.
