Support Antifascists Arrested Protesting Neo-Nazis in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

by Antifa | 02.27.2012

In the end, an antifascist from Philadelphia was arrested after the neo-Nazis menacingly approached the antifascists, with every intention of assaulting them. Showing their true colors, police rushed in to defend the neo-Nazis and arrest the antifascists, leaving the fascists free to walk the streets while the antifa was carted away to jail.

Dear Friends and Comrades:

As part of a supposed national day of protests organized by various fascist groups, over a dozen neo-Nazis appeared at the state capitol in Harrisburg, PA today to “to arouse the attention of mainstream media to the rapes, murders and other horrendous ATROCITIES our brethren in South Africa [read: white racists] endure on a DAILY BASIS.”

Antifascists from across the region organized to counter this insanely racist propaganda the neo-Nazis were attempting to spout, trying to both shout them down and block their signs so their hateful rhetoric would neither be seen or heard.

We do not have much more information at this point, but we are being told that the person arrested is being charged with simple assault, possession of a concealed non-lethal weapon and at least two other charges. His arraignment is scheduled for sometime tonight – probably after 9PM. We will have the exact bail amount and more information then. In the meantime, considering the number and severity of the charges we do know about, we are starting to fundraise bail money.

The easiest way to donate money is through a GreenDot Money Pak. Money Paks are a simple and easy way to anonymously send money varying in amounts from $20 – $500 ($1100 at Wal-Mart). We prefer MoneyPaks over Paypal because of Paypal’s history of disabling accounts with little justification, and because the MoneyPak method is almost instaneous.

How to Send Money via MoneyPak

A Money pak is a consumer product in which you pay a retailer money and in return receive a 14 digit number. You can then give this to us and we receive the money. Fast and anonymous (assuming you pay with cash).

1. Find out were your nearest retailer is that carries these cards. This is as easy as visiting https://www.moneypak.com/StoreLocator.aspx and putting in your zip code. Unfortunately Money Paks are only available inside the US at this time.

2. Go to that retailer, you will find the Green Dot Money Pak were you will find other various PrePaid cards for phone, online games, gift cards, etc. You are looking for Green Dot Money Pak (Not the prepaid visa). Do not get the card that looks like a prepaid credit card.

3. Now take the proper card up to the front counter (Some are scratch off some are just a scan and its printed on a receipt for you) and they will ask you the amount you want place on the code/card tell them the amount and then there’s a $4.95 fee added by the retailer and that’s your total.

4. When you are done. go ahead and shoot us an email to nycantifascists@gmail.com with the 14 Digit code.

Anything you can donate would be helpful! And please pass on the word! If you need to donate in some other, please contact us at the email address below and we’ll work something out.
