Weekly Update 7

There have been a few new posts in the last weeks, mainly videos. I have also reorganised the “anti-fascist” and “fash” sections; visit these to see all the new videos plus other updates.
There has been other material uploaded.

Weekly Update 6

Bit bored of revision at the moment so I thought I’d put some new material I’ve recently found.

I’ve got loads left to be uploaded. In June I’m going to put up the remaining material and re-organise the blog.

Some new additions:

Also, check out the fantastic documentary on French anti-fascist gangs!

Weekly Update 4

Nothing new has gone on the archive for two weeks now despite me having a ton of stuff at home. I’ve been writing my dissertation so the scanning has taken a back seat unfortunately. I have been paid my friend to do some scanning for me as I don’t really have the time but my measly student loan doesn’t stretch far. Don’t worry though as it will all eventually go up!

Please link the archive to facebooks, twitters etc etc so more people can learn the history.

However what I can bring you are some stats!

An Introduction

I am writing my third year university dissertation on anti-fascism in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. I’ve been privileged enough to been given access to a wealth of images and literature which I thought I would share for everyone to see. The thesis will be finished by the 24th April 2012.

This blog will be a nice little archive of the material I’ve received before they go back to their owners. I think it’s important that there is a central archive of the anti-fascist material published by organisations such as Anti-Fascist Action and Red Action so that all can see them and this small part of history won’t be lost.

If you have any images, literature, stickers or thoughts please send them to: antifascistarchive@gmail.com
