0161 Festival & Stuff!

Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! It’s nearly that time of year again! Yes it is, cor blimey guv’nor and make no mistake! It’s time to dust off your DMs, fire up your antifascist fun chums and make sure you get your tickets for the 0161 Anti-Fascist Festival, one of the major events in the UK Antifa Calendar that is coming up in June.

This is a 4 day festival of righteous anger with entertainment provided by poorly shaven and badly dressed musical reprobates that starts off with a working class history walking tour of Manchester on the Thursday then no doubt degenerates rather quickly into the boozy Irish folk punk night on Friday. Saturday and Sunday feature a main stage and acoustic stage plus more after parties with either Ska/2 Tone/Reggae sounds or hip-hop which will continue into the wee small hours and beyond. Or until the beer runs out. 

You’d be daft to go, but dafter to miss it! We’d be shagged out after the walk. Anyway, although we haven’t heard any of their cassettes, we would like to congratulate Husker Durutti for having the best anarcho-punk name ever, although their music is probably a bit too loud and shouty for the Malatesta’s sensitive eardrums. Major congratulations to the organisers for putting together such a massive celebration of anti-fascism, music and good times. Well done! Here’s the website with all the info.

Malatesta aka M. Testa, undercover anti-fascist blogger, has analyzed the changing fortunes of the British far right for nearly a decade. He has given lectures on anti-fascism, published articles in Anarchist Studies and Freedom magazine and wrote Militant Anti-Fascism: 100 Years Of Resistance (AK Press 2015) which the Morning Star called a '‘Potent Primer On Europe’s Anti-Fascist Struggle … a useful source of information about the fight against fascism.’ http://www.akuk.com/index.php?_a=product&product_id=7285
