The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent

Dave Hann,
co-author "No Retreat"
Connolly Books, 2pm, Saturday May 15th

An informal talk with Dave Hann as guest speaker will take place at 2pm on Saturday, the 15th of May in Connolly Books, 42 East Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2.

ANTI-FASCIST ACTION, Ireland • 6 May 2004

Dave Hann is co-author with Steve Tilzey of "No Retreat". Both are veterans of the many physical confrontations which took place between the militant anti-fascists of AFA and members of the National Front, the BNP and Combat 18 in Manchester in the period 1977 to 1997, a tactic that eventually forced the fascists off the streets across Britain. "No Retreat" tells the story, in their own words, of how this was achieved.

This event should be of interest to all anti-racists and anti-fascists committed to opposing the current increase in "race" politics in this country, where at present isolated groups and individuals are attempting to organise along the same lines as the far-right has done in Europe. For those who wish to avoid repeating the mistakes of the liberal anti-racists in Britain and elsewhere who are in part responsible for the current successes of the far-right across Europe, this talk should be instructive.

The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent



All censorships exist to prevent any one from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently the first condition of progress is the removal of censorships.
- George Bernard Shaw
