Remember fallen anti-fascist comrades, Ivan Khutorskoy and Carlos Palomino
Over the past few months, both Clement Meric and Pavlos Fyssas (Killah P) have been murdered by the far right and huge solidarity demos have been held in their honour. This is a great sign that solidarity can extend throughout the world.
On the 11th November it will be six years since Carlos Palomino was stabbed to death by a Neo-nazi, and on the 16th November it will be four years since Ivan Khutorskoy was shot dead in his home by Russian fascists.
We will be holding a solidarity demo on Saturday the 16th November to remember both Carlos, Ivan and all fallen antifascist comrades and friends.
We hope that everyone can make it, it is important that we never forget what has happened and that the fight continues!
We encourage all groups to come and attend, please bring banners and flags.

ACA are happy to present an afternoon of modern anti-fascist films depicting both the struggle against fascism and tributes to fallen comrades. It will be held at Moston Miners Community Centre from 15:30 onwards.
Films that we will be showing :
Carlos (Dos anos sin ti, dos anos contigo) – Carlos (2 years without you, two years with you) – (Spain)
A film made by Madrid anti-fascists a year after Carlos was murdered by Neo-nazis, showing both how the struggle and fight against fascism has continued and how they were fighting for justice. Here is a small clip from the film … http://theplatform.nuevaradio.org/video/antifascismoantirracismo/limg_src_http_theplatform_nuevaradio_org_2637/
161 > 88 (Czech Republic)
This movie was made by antifascists who have already chosen their attitude to the topic. We won’t persuade you that the movie is ”objective” in the usual sense. But we see its value in something else – the fact that we have been an active part of the events and that we were effectively shaping them. The movie of the Antifascist Action (AFA) monitors more than twenty years of the struggle against neo-Nazis, fascists and racists. The historic cross-section shows the multiple rises and falls of neo-Nazis and racists. You will witness the power as well as limited potential of the antifascist movement that doesn’t deal just with neo-Nazis, but also with the repression of the state and the public opinion.

ANTIFA – Chasseurs de skins (France)
Members of the Red Warriors, an antifascist gang in France, 1985. Red Warriors used violent force to remove Neo Nazi gangs from France and provide safe spaces for immigrants during the rise of white nationalism and an outbreak of violent crime against people of colour. They formed a squat called “L.U.S.I.N.E” and were considered the most effect gang to counter nazi violence, working to instill fear in their opposition.

£4 entrance, all money will be going towards antifascism in Manchester.
Hope you can make it.
