“Neither in Greece nor anywhere” ANTIFAstival – Barcelona 16/11

The antifascist network for Greece invites you to the antifascist festival “Neither in Greece nor anywhere ANTIFAstival” that will take place on Saturday, November 16th (*) in Ateneu Popular 9Barris (C/Portlligat 11-15, Barcelona).

Our aim is to disseminate the festival the seriousness of the Greek socio-political reality, to demonstrate the fascist threat of a clearly nazist party and to unravel the scope of fascist violence and crimes that are conducted on a daily basis, to send a powerful message of solidarity to the social movement that is fighting with all its strength against fascism, racism, and capitalism, and finally to build solid relations with the antifascist movements in Barcelona and in other regions.

For all these reasons, we will be waiting for you in the one-day festival (from 12.30 until 02.00) with lectures and projections of documentaries, with the participation of guests from Greece and members of Barcelona’s antifascist movement. The festival will close with a big solidarity gig with Catalan groups and Giannis Aggelakas & Band from Greece.

The festival’s full program includes:

12.30 – 14.30: “Dimensions of the radical right in Southern Europe”

Presentation of the book “Greece in the time of IMF” from the author and round table with Marti Marin Corbera, associated professor at the Faculty of Modern and Contemporary History of the Autónoma University of Barcelona and with Manuel Delgado, professor at the Faculty of Anthropology of Barcelona University.

16.00 – 17.30: “Against fascism and racism: Popular organisation in neighbourhoods”

Conversation with David Bou, activist and journalist, member of the weekly La Directa. Participants: David Karvala, activist, member of the organization “Unity Against Fascism and Racism” (UCFR – Unitat Contra el feixisme i el racisme), Daniela Ortiz, activist and artist and member of the collective website Antigonia, member of Catalonia’s Antifascist Platform (Plataforma Antifeixista)

As long as we breath, fascism NO PASARÁ!

    continued They could pick up trash on the street, clean toitles or whatever. Just do something besides sitting on their fanny having a pitty party. This includes unemployment checks. As a self employed small business I have to pay unemployment and workmans comp but cannot collect on it if my business goes belly up or if I get hurt on the job. Great system we have isn’t it? BTW I am far from rich. I have a family of 7 and live on 50K a year.
