Event description

Description

The Campaign Against Racism and Fascism invites all anti-fascist and anti-racist activists to a day forum on organising against the far-right.

This will be a practical and activism-based forum, where ideas and theories are discussed only in relation to their significance and impact on activist approaches to resistance.


Whether you’re an experienced activist or brand new, all are welcome to participate, come along to:

  • hear from a range of CARF and other left-wing activist speakers on their experiences and approaches to challenging far-right groups and their ideas
  • join in group discussions on these approaches and consider how we can build anti-fascist activism in Australia and globally into the future (or just listen—feel free to participate as little or as much as you want!)

Please register in advance to support organising of rooms etc. Sliding scale applies for entry fee to support access, including free entry where needed.


Workshops will include:

  • Racism and resistance: Facing the front lines of racism [guest speaker panel]
  • Can you fight it, if you don’t understand it?: What should we know about fascism in order to fight it effectively?
  • Settle down, it’ll never happen here!: Examining Australian support and links to fascism & the role of Australian antifascists
  • Why can't we ask nicely?: The aims, tactics and challenges of counter-protesting
  • Keep them out of Australia and off the streets: Examining the calls for visa bans, parliamentary interventions and increased policing of the far-right
  • Misogyny, gender and the far-right: Understanding and challenging the gender politics of the far-right
  • Green, red and black: Climate change, eco-fascism, the far-right, and building unity in green and anti-fascist activism

Full program will be available in coming weeks.
