The free weekly direct action newsheet published in Brighton since 1994 - Copyleft - Information for Action
The price of anti-fascist and anarchist activism can sometimes be very high as we were painfully reminded a few days ago with the news that twenty year old Moscow anti-fascist Nikita Kalin (Никита Калин) had been found dead
He had been viciously attacked, there were 61 stab wounds on the body together with injuries to ribs and the head, making it clear that he had been attacked by a group. Police quickly arrested a suspect that had the dead man's blood on his clothes. Unsurprisingly he belongs to a local fascist group.
Nikita was from a working class family and never hid his political beliefs, taking part in local anarchist and anti-fascist activity. His family fears that this will be yet another case of cover-up with the police ignoring a potential political motive for the crime and classing it as common hooliganism. One human rights organization has provided a lawyer to assist Nikita's family but in the meantime his friends and family need to raise money for funeral costs.

For 25 years Golden Dawn were a marginal group that for the most attacked small left-wing and anarchist groups and sometimes would also go for immigrants. Until a few years ago they never measured more than 200 members. Up until recently they had one office. Now? They have forty-eight.
