About the Book:
Essays written by a who’s who of antifascist researchers, including Talia Lavin (Culture Warlords); Kim Kelly (Fight Like Hell), Geo Maher (A World Without Police), Hilary A. Moore (No Fascist USA!), and Daryle Lamont Jenkins (One People’s Project).
¡No Pasarán! is an anthology of antifascist writing that takes up the fight against white supremacy and the far-right from multiple angles. From the history of antifascism to today’s movement to identify, deplatform, and confront the right, and the ways an insurgent fascism is growing within capitalist democracies, a myriad of voices come together to shape the new face of antifascism in a moment of social and political flux.
