About Bristol Antifascist Cooperative

There are many fascist groups operating in Britain, but the biggest threat comes from the British National Party who in recent years have done their utmost to hide their fascist politics beneath a thin veneer of respectability. Bristol Anti-Fascist Cooperative oppose all fascist activity, but destroying the BNP and EDL is our current priority. Their presence on the political landscape pushes the wider political agenda to the right to the cost of working class people. Bristol has long been a haven of working class organisation and anti-fascist sentiment. In recent years, however, there has been a marked increase in organised fascist activity. We exist to oppose and beat back this rise in fascism as well as to act in solidarity with other anti-fascist movements locally, nationally and internationally.
