Yo, Northeast Nazis: STFU!

On learning of recent racist activity around the city, Philadelphia Antifa decided it was about time to make some visits.

Keystone United (aka KSS/Keystone State Skinheads/complete fucking garbage) are a pack of backwards racist boneheads that have not just a bullshit nonsense ‘ideology’, but also a string of misery wherever they go. Murderers, rapists, abusers, that’s who Keystone United is. They want new blood, and they’ve been out on Philly’s streets, advertising.

Crews of Philly Antifa responded in kind. We thought we should hit up Joey Phy’s (of 4383 Salmon St.) hood to let his neighbors know they have a Nazi in their midst. Not only should people know when they live next to a toxic dump of a ‘person’, we also want them to know that we are there, and  are watching out for them. Joey Phy should not be comfortable spreading his propaganda, or walking the fucking street for that matter.

We also went back up to the northeast, where lots of KSS stickers were removed and destroyed recently. We blanketed that area too, covering up nazi symbols and messages with our own. Our friends at La horde (http://lahorde.samizdat.net/) will be happy to see their anti-fascist imagery put to use in silencing Keystone. Greedy gentrifier advertising was also disposed of; their community shattering tactics and property grabs dismantle deep and powerful neighborhood bonds that are the lifeblood of this city. Where they tried to take space for their messages, we took space back and stomped out their words.

When the Nazis try to crawl out of their holes, Philadelphia Antifa will be there, to bury them.

Cleaning up the Garbage

From a Philly antifascist:

Post Trump election days have empowered every sort of white supremacist
across the states. Northeast Philadelphia, always an active, stinking
cesspool of racist skinheads, has seen the reemergence of the Keystone
United (previously known as KSS/Keystone State Skinheads). They have
been a menace for years. Their legacy has nothing to do with “heritage.”
Their “heritage” is about about a trail of murders, violent attacks, and
rapes wherever they pop up. Recently, the bigots have been back at it,
covering the area with their fascist propaganda, showing up along major
corridors, spreading their vile filth in their old recruiting grounds.

Local Philadelphia Anti-Fascists were quick in killing their messaging
dead in its tracks. They cannot be allowed back into Philly’s hoods and
communities, and racists will be met everywhere they are.
They will not recruit.
They will not have a place to speak.
They will not feel safe.
No quarter, no inch, no space to breathe for fascists.

Fuck KSS Fuck KSS

Fuck KSS Fuck KSS

Philly Antifa Marches in Solidarity with Ferguson Insurrection

textsecure-2014-08-20-212027

A few members of Antifa Philadelphia participated in Tonight’s (8/20) Rally and March in Solidarity with the people of Ferguson resisting the police and national guard called by the Travon Martin Organizing Committee.

From the call:

Another Black man dead. This would be just another day like every other day in America, if it weren’t for one simple fact: Ferguson turned out, stood up, and has refused to get back on its knees.

Mike Brown was days away from college? Don’t care.

Didn’t he steal some cigars? Don’t care.

What about the looters? Don’t care.

Mike Brown was black, guilty of only this, which made him guilty of all else: (jay)walking while black, (back)talking while black, breathing while black. Black like Oscar Grant, black like Kathryn Johnson, black like Renisha Mcbride, black like Eric Garner, like Rodney King, like Emmett Till. All black, and all guilty.

Mike Brown’s life was of value–is of value. Full stop. No college degree makes that so; no robbery takes that away. The people of Ferguson recognize this. White supremacy’s subtle baiting of thievery, college degrees and saggy pants and talking back does not.

We talk back. We turn up. We stand tall. With Ferguson–for Mike, for every black body in America robbed of its right to live–for every injustice that we are growing sick and tired of. We are done with your police/media slander campaigns. We are sick with anger.

It is too late for containing it.

Not another. Not another. Not one more.

NEO-NAZI BONEHEADS RALLYING AND MARCHING IN PHILADELPHIA
ALL OUT AGAINST THE FASCISTS!!

WHERE: Philadelphia, Boathouse Row, Fairmount Park (Thorfin Karlsefni Statue along Kelly Drive)
WHEN: October 19, 2013 @ 11:00 AM

Its that time of year again.  Every October for several years the “White Nationalist” Nazis of the Keystone State Skinheads (KSS) have held their “Leif Ericson Day Celebration” in Philly’s Fairmount Park. KSS has been in decline in recent years but have been attempting a resurgence.  KSS memorializes the “first European to land in America” because they feel it justifies their ludicrous claims that the US is a “white nation” belonging only to people of “pure” European Descent.  And like almost all of those several years, Antifascists in the region are mobilizing to confront them.

Why oppose this event?  For several reasons:  KSS have been operating in PA for over ten years with relative impunity, but Philadelphia remains one of the few places in the state with an active resistance to their organizing and recruiting attempts.  Areas where they are able to grow openly and unopposed are inevitably the locations of fascist violence.  Several known examples (which tend to represent the tip of the iceberg) of violence perpetrated by KSS members include a 2002 assault in Feasterville, a 2003 hate crime assault in Scranton, an attempted homicide in New Stanton in 2006, and homicide charges brought against 2 members in 2007 for a double murder of 2 homeless men in Florida.

Incidents like this have (thankfully) slowed down due to KSS’s decline.  However, KSS, along with Blood and Honour USA, put on a large white power concert near Altoona this year. They also attended a rally and a WP show in New Jersey, both events well attended.  If we allow the Fascists to regroup and recruit, we only ensure a much more difficult battle in the near future.  However,  if we respond with a furious opposition willing to expose, oppose and confront these Neo-Nazis, we can smash KSS for good and put a serious dent in Blood and Honour’s attempts to coalesce various White Power groups.

In addition to stemming the tide of Fascist violence and the possibility of finishing off KSS, there is the matter of solidarity. Even if you do not feel that KSS affects you, there is no debating that their violence has very real victims. Turning a blind eye to the attempts to resurrect KSS is a tacit concession to  many more incidents of fascist violence.

We will be gathering at the Thorfin Karlsefni statue along Kelly Drive in Fairmount Park at 11:00 AM with the intention of occupying their rallying location. Another group, Residents Against Racism, is also going to be protesting the Nazis.  They have called for a peaceful protest and we intend to respect that as far as the area around the statue and their bloc, but we will be adhering to a diversity of tactics in all other parts of the park and reserve the right to defend ourselves from Fascist attack.

This call is for all good people who will not be silent in the face of Fascist aggression.  Unity is our strength.  Enough is enough is enough. They want a race war.  They’re only going to get the last half.

For an end to Fascism in our lifetime,

Philly Antifa
