Submitted to It’s Going Down:
Identity Evropa (IE) is a white nationalist and fascist formation headed by Nathan Damigo, a veteran and former leader of the National Youth Front (NYF), which was the youth wing of the Neo-Nazi American Freedom Party, which itself is connected to the Golden State Skinheads (GSS) and headed by LA corporate lawyer, William Johnson. Damigo was convicted of a hate crime several years ago after he pulled a gun on a cab driver in New York while intoxicated and since then has become a key player in the expanding white nationalist movement that seeks to create an all-white fascist ethno-state akin to the Confederacy on North American soil.
Damigo is close with Johnny “Monoxide” Ramondetta of Berkeley, CA who does a white nationalist podcast, “John Hess,” a Neo-Nazi in the Phoenix, AZ area, and Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute (NPI) who resides in Whitefish, MT. After holding a rally on UC Berkeley in May of 2016, Identity Evropa began a poster campaign in the bay area and beyond. The posters were all quickly found and destroyed and the pictures posted by the group were often of flyers that had been ripped down over a week before, largely by random individuals on the street.
Despite this, its seems that IE have been using the publicity of the event and the contacts made to ship out full color posters throughout the US. In response, people in various cities are going out and destroying this crap. If you see one in a city you live in, please get to work! Even if you don’t live in the cities listed but know someone that does, hit them up now. While you’re at it, take some time to put up some anti-fascist ones as well! See list of potential posters below.
With a call out for solidarity with Sacramento Anti-Fascists on July 10th, make this an opportunity to bring people together and not only find the Neo-Nazis posters and destroy them, but also put up posters, banners, and stickers of our own. Don’t let groups like IE grow and expand, let’s smash them in their tracks and build our movement in its place. Send in reports, tweets, and pictures to itsgoingdown.org
