Anti-fascism, anti-racism and ‘no platform’

December 16, 2015


Evan Smith, at Hatful of History, provides a very useful account of the tactic of ‘no platform’ as developed by the anti-fascist movement.

We can now add a little to this discussion with these three pamphlets:

Fascists and Racists- free speech will not stop them

an IMG Students pamphlet, from 1974, is a straightforward defence of the controversial ‘no platform’ motion won at the NUS conference in Liverpool that year.

Fascism Smash It Now- the case for no platform

is a more detailed, hastily duplicated pamphlet, also dating from 1974, and it takes a more theoretical and historical approach to the question of fascism.


Fascism- How to smash it is from October 1974 and is a very well produced and professionally printed pamphlet aimed at a wider audience.
