Ex ‘Tommy’ supporters embrace Nazism

It has been the dearest wish of Resisting Hate for several years now to see hate preacher Tommy Robinson discredited and consigned to obscurity. But, although we are very likely to get our wish in 2020, it will not be in the way ourselves and other anti-hate organisations had hoped it would happen. To those […]

When Immigration Laws Split Families

Guest article written by David Sheekey In 2005 I was asked by a social worker friend if I could help out at Wigan Welcome, a drop in service offering support, help and a place to meet others facing the same adversity. Wigan was not a particularly welcoming place for many of whom the National Asylum […]

The Exploitation of ‘Child S’

Author @Sockfresh When in October 2013 Steven Yaxely Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson) abandoned his “comrades” in the English Defence League (EDL) this presaged the beginning of a strategy by some on the far-right to seek to establish credibility among the British working class by straddling the grey area between fascist groups such as the British […]

The Benefits of Immigration

For many years – and increasingly more so since Brexit first came to dominate the political sphere – we have been told that immigration is a negative force in the UK. Whenever we experience any discomfort or ill in our daily lives, we are told that immigrants – and the strain they put on our […]

Notes from the Nazi Playbook

Written by Anthony Crawford Standing 5’6 in his socks, slim build, with contrived intensity and one eye on the media, Daniel Thomas surveys the scene for signs of confrontation. His dark shades and pronounced forehead brings to mind dark-suited Agent Smith from the Matrix. The science fiction fantasy in which a red pill offers the […]

Watch Tommy Robinson Admit His Donations Are Dead

Tommy Robinson has not had the best of years. He’s been deplatformed across all mainstream social media, the main fundraising pages including PayPal have banned him, he lost his court case suiing the police, he’s been convicted of contempt of court, he’s lost 5k of his 51k followers on Telegram, he’s been forced to sell […]

Extreme Right-Wing Groups Groom Youngsters

Guest article by Bella Gaffarena Nationalist movements love to lure young people. Tactically, for some groups, this is a way to ensure their ideologies are carried into future generations, preserving their legacy and guaranteeing their beliefs don’t die out. However, mostly, it seems the far right regard Gen-Z as easy recruits; culturally malleable, dependent on […]

The Far Right Are Failing

It is a common misconception expressed by the mainstream press that the far right are rising in Britain.  However, laudable as it is to see the threat of fascism taken seriously, the truth is actually not as bleak as the papers would have us believe. It is important to differentiate clearly between the right wing […]

Black Van Man: Far Right Pound Shop Journalist

I write this as an ethnic minority who is also a proud member of Resisting Hate. One of my main reasons for joining RH was that I was sick and tired of people feeling that they had the right to victimise, bully, harass and intimidate others just for who they are or what they identify […]

Why Death Threats Are Always Wrong. Yes, Even To Tommy Robinson!

It is no secret that Resisting Hate think Tommy Robinson is a dangerous far right extremist. He is a racist, bigoted hater who uses his easily duped and gullible followers to grift vast amounts of money and promote his own personal war against the Muslim community. But abhorrent as I find Robinson’s views and behaviour […]

From the Far Right to a Better Future

Thank you to our guest writer who has shared below his story of joining and leaving far right extremism. I was born in the East End of London in 1970 in a working class family times are tough but we always had food on the table and my Dad worked extremely long hours to make […]
