Pack the Courtoom for the Tinley Park 5!

Image

Taken from http://tinleyparkfive.wordpress.com:

The Tinley Park Five have a court appearance 9am June 12 at the Bridgeview Courthouse (10220 South 76th Avenue Bridgeview , IL 60455). The white supremacist community is threatening later violence against anyone in attendance as can be seen in this thread from Stormfront. The International Action Center has posted a short article about the court date located here. The Tinley Park Five and their support network hope to gather a large group of people to attend, in order to prevent their friends and family from being targeted by violent fascists.

We realize that many activists in the Chicago area might not be supportive of the tactics the Tinley Park Five are accused of. Keep in mind, they have not been convicted of anything at this time. We ask that you consider attending this court date even if you’re uncomfortable with militant actions as a show of support to their families. We need a large group of people for the families to be able to blend into. If you’re not comfortable showing solidarity with the Tinley Park Five, we ask that you consider attending as a show of solidarity to their families and friends who have never participated in any direct action and just want to be able to see their sons, brothers, and partners without fear of being murdered by fascist thugs.

Those willing to participate in this show of solidarity are asked to seriously consider the potential risks of walking into the cross-hairs of these racist lunatics.

If you are willing to come, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines in order to protect the families and loved ones of the Tinley Park Five as well as to not jeopardize the legal outcome of the case:

  • Do not bring cameras.
  • If asked to comment by media, or anyone claiming to be a journalist, say only two words: “NO COMMENT
  • Be respectful and cooperative with all law enforcement and court officials
  • Do not engage in debate or discussion with any racist elements
  • Do not confront or posture against white supremacists at the courthouse. They will be there trying to provoke a response.
  • Do not assume that anyone you do not personally know is a supporter. White nationalists do have plans to ‘infiltrate’  their supporters as well as pose as journalists, bloggers, and curious activists
  • Do not wear any clothing that shows allegiance to any anti-racist or anti-fascist cause.
  • Be aware that the Chicago Tribune and other main-stream media outlets have already jeopardized the safety of Tinley Park Five supporters. They are desperate for any chance to portray the Tinley Park Five and their supporters as crazy fanatics. Don’t give them this ammunition, even though both reporters and white supremacists will be doing their best to bait you into behaving in a militant fashion.
  • This is serious business. If you don’t think you’re capable of holding your tongue when hearing Nazis and Klansman call supporters things such as “race-traitors”, “niggers”, “anti-white terrorists”, “mud-babies”, and every other ethnic slur imaginable we ask that you show your support in one of these different ways.

The overwhelming support the Tinley Park Five continue to receive has become a life-altering experience for those of us working on jail support. Thank you for considering to help. Solidarity.

 

United Northern And Southern Knights Of The Ku Klux Klan(UNSKKKK) HACKED BY ANITFASCISTS

“Once again Christmas has came early this year for us anti-fascists. Yet another info leak has been sent our way. This time it’s the united Northern and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. It includes their constitution, rank system, hand shakes and salutes as well as organizer addresses for Ohio, Florida, Illinois, Georgia and many others. Another big thanks from Anti-Racist Action and all the antifa who benefit from this knowledge.”

 

Note:

This is not too pertinent for Philadelphia because (fortunately), the closest thing the UNSKKKK has to a presence in Philly is one lone guy out in Bethlehem, Neil Bellanca.

But for kicks, here’s a picture of Neil and his address:

New Jersey Neo-Nazis lose custody of their kids

Image

Taken from http://liveraf.wordpress.com:

A self-proclaimed Nazi father and his wife cannot have back their four children, three of whom have Nazi-inspired names, a court has ruled.

Adolf Hitler Campbell, six, and his younger sisters Joycelynn Aryan Nation, five, and Honszlynn Hinler, four, were taken into custody in January 2009.

State officials also took another son, Hons Campbell, from his parents Heath and Deborah Campbell just hours after he was born in November.

A New Jersey Supreme Court judge has now ruled that the four children will not be returned to their parents, who have since separated.

The Nazi-inspired names came to light after a store refused to decorate a birthday cake reading ‘Happy birthday Adolf Hitler’ in December 2008.

In 2010, a New Jersey appeals court ruled that there was sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect due to prior domestic violence to seize the children.

Authorities insisted that putting the children into care had nothing to do with their names.

But Heath Campbell said that the court’s decision was not down to their quality of life, and was based purely on the names they chose for the children.

“Our kids weren’t taken because of abuse. I’m honest about who I am and what I am.”

“If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I’ll do it.’ The children are ‘more my heart and soul and everything than anything’,” he said.

Campbell, who has a swastika tattoo on his neck, last saw the children a year ago. He is now separated from his wife, who moved out of the state.

Kristine Brown, from the state Division of Youth and Family Services, said that she was unable to comment on the case due to confidentiality laws.

But she said that “every call or investigation that DYFS initiates at the end of the day is to determine if the child is at risk or in the midst of child abuse and neglect.”

Court records previously showed both parents had themselves been victims of childhood abuse and were suffering from unspecified physical and psychological disabilities.

Court records also show that the oldest child, Adolf, frequently threatened to kill people.

The mother reportedly had also once given a note to her neighbour saying that she was terrified of her husband, who had threatened to kill her.

The Campbells have previously defended the names, saying they chose them simply because they liked them and they were unique.

Campbell said that he named his son after the Nazi leader, as ‘no one else in the world would have that name’.

——————————————————————————–

It is worth mentioning that the Campbell’s originally denied any Nazism and appeared to be just incredible stupid people.

This proved not to be the case, though, after they were found to be members of the National Socialist Movement (NSM), the largest (and shrinking) Neo-Nazi organization in the country.

A nearly full list of the NSM’s membership can be found here:

http://www.onepeoplesproject.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=959:whos-who-in-the-natl-socialist-movement-membership-list-leake&catid=29:antifa-news&Itemid=14

When Deborah Campbell gave birth to her most recent child, Child Services were on hand to take custody of it immediately, and who turned up to protest? A handful of NSM boneheads.

Philly Antifa does not support the state in any capacity, and feels it pertinent to say that Child Services does far more harm than good. That said, these children have a far better chance of growing up to be happy adults without having such stupid, abusive, bigoted people in their lives.

 

Longtime Nazi Steve Smith Elected to Republican Party County Committee in PA!

Steve Smith, Pictured with convicted murderer Charles Marovskis in 2007. Marovskis would later be arrested and plead guilty to two federal charges of second-degree murder in connection with the 1998 beating death of two Florida homeless men.

According to a post and picture from Stormfront.org, the largest White Power message board in the world, Steve Smith has been elected to a 4-year term in the republican county committee for Pittston City Ward 4.Image

For more information on Smith’s long history in Far-Right and Neo-Nazi political circles, see:

http://www.onepeoplesproject.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=125:steve-smith&catid=19:s&Itemid=3

Smith has at various times in his life been a member of the KKK, Aryan Nations, Keystone State Skinheads, EURO and NAAWP (both started by David Duke, an obvious influence on Smith in recent years) and several other Neo-Nazi and White Nationalist groups.

Smith once served 30 days for Ethnic intimidation related to an attack by himself, Keith Carney and Steve Monteforte on a lone black man coming home from work in the early AM, reportedly asking him if he had ever “been beaten up by skinheads.”

Since getting out of jail, Smith has modeled himself after Duke and other suit-and-tie Nazis, attending public forums and trying to put a gentle, family-friendly face on virulent racist, xenophobic politics.

This election is eerily reminiscent of that of JT Ready, another wannaba-politician Neo-Nazi who was once elected to a local government position in Arizona. The main difference is that he was not known to be a Nazi before he had already been elected. As you all probably know, JT Ready murdered 4 people, including an infant child, before committing suicide earlier this month in Arizona.

Support the Tinley Park 5!

See previous post for more information on the events in Tinley Park, IL last Saturday.

https://www.wepay.com/donations/legal-defense-fund-for-the-tinley-park-five

 

Information

Saturday May 19, 2012 Five antifascists were arrested in Tinley Park, a Chicago Suburb, for allegedly assaulting a number of white-supremacist organizers. Help us raise funds for their support and costly legal defense. One of the alleged “victims” was arrested on warrants for child pornography and another was arrested for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. Bond has been set at nearly $1 Million dollars for the alleged attackers. Legal funds are needed in order to secure adequate legal representation and ensure that their families are taken care of until they are released.

 

Philly Antifa stands in total solidarity with the Tinley Park 5.

 

NO MERCY FOR FASCISTS!

Nazi Meeting Smashed in Tinley Park, IL Restaurant

This story is still unfolding, but here’s what we know:

The 5th Annual “White Nationalist Economic Summit” was attacked this afternoon in a daring daylight raid by 20-30 Antifascists on a Tinley Park, IL restaurant. The summit had been in the works secretly for 6 months, during most of which it was known to Antifascists in the area due to a nazi snitch.

In attendance at the event were several members of the Illinois National Socialist Movement (NSM), which has been having a banner 13 months, including two major defeats, the death of two high-profile members, the leaking of their entire membership list, and various other embarrassments. Also in  attendance were several members of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a “suit and tie nazi” organization that specializes in race-baiting prominent news stories and glorifying the confederacy.

10 people were injured in the attack. 9 of them appear to be attendees (out of a total of around 20), with the final person injured being the manager of the restaurant, who had attempted to restrain an Antifascist for arrest and was treated to a beating as a result.

Several nazis were hospitalized. There are no reports of injured Antifascists. The police detained a car with several people in it, but it is unknown if they were involved in the altercation or just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

More info to follow as we get it, but here’s some other sources to check out:

Philly Antifa would like to salute whoever was responsible for this successful action. This represent a dedicated, dynamic, and above all daredevil approach to Antifascism we believe necessary to win!

Bonehead band “The Hard Way” kicked off Battle of the Bands in Philly

Image

 

Coming right on the heels of their beating at Champs in Trenton recently (see below), Atlantic city nazis Jack Warren and Kenny Souder were given another disappointment this week after Philly Antifa found out their other band “The Hard Way” was booked to play a battle of the bands at Sweeny’s saloon tonight.

It only took a tip to the owners of the bar and the people booking the show to get them removed.  Apparently the video of Souder performing with the band “Chaos 88” alongside longtime Atlantic City “Skinheads” member Warren Mieckle while Warren sang along and guarded the band was enough evidence of their associations.  After confirming what they were told was true, the owner of Sweeny’s promised that “The Hard Way” would be allowed neither to play nor even “enter the door” of the bar.

 

Warren and Souder are members of ACS, despite recent claims to be apolitical scumfucks, which is the refuge of all cowardly boneheads when confronted with their affiliations/activities. Warren even sports a tattoo of the ACS logo on his arm.  And as any real (Anti-Racist) skinhead will tell you, you DO NOT get a crews’ tattoo without being in that crew. Especially a crew as violent and unstable as ACS.

Atlantic City Bonehead band smashed at show in Trenton, NJ

Reported by onepeoplesproject.com:

Foreign Object, a band associated with the Atlantic City “Skinheads”, get a little comeuppance in Trenton. New Jersey definitely has a nasty habit of doing this to Nazis, does it not?

One People’s Project

TRENTON, NJ—When the iconic punk band DRI performed at a club in town that they have often performed, they did not know it was with a local band opening with ties to the largest and most violent neo-Nazi crew in the state. And the person who booked them at the club did not know until it was too late. But when Foreign Object started playing Skrewdriver covers, it became immediately apparent what this band was about. That was what precipitated a brawl that reportedly resulted in the band being beaten down and thrown out of the club.

According to reports, patrons to the club showed their displeasure with the band’s choice of music by confronting the members after their set. Random reports have been circulated of the drummer getting the recipient of much of the blows and band members attempting to run angry patrons down with their truck as they tried to escape.

Foreign Object is an Atlantic City-based band who counts among the band members lead singer Jack Warren, and guitarist Kenny Souder. Both are longtime associates of the Atlantic City “Skinheads” (ACS). Warren also plays with the band Hard Way while Souder also plays in the neo-Nazi band Chaos 88 with fellow ACS associate Warren Meickle, formerly of the white power band Aggravated Assault.  Chaos 88 has recently played a show for the Confederate Hammerskins and in September plans to play a show for the Keystone State “Skinheads” in Pennsylvania

ACS has been in the news lately due to its founder and leader Bryan Bradley being struck and killed by lightning in September. Last month, Bradley’s fellow union members and state senators paid tribute to him at an Atlantic City, NJ monument to workers who lost their lives on the job, many of them not aware of his life as the leader of a hate group for 25 years.

While DRI has not as of yet made any statement in regards to the brawl and Foreign Object’s ties to ACS, the Houston-based band has a long history against racism, including performing at shows put on by the John Brown Anti-Klan Committee. It is not known who was involved in the brawl or the extent of injuries sustained.
