Why was the Archive created?

Why the Archive?

I wrote my undergraduate dissertation (2011) on militant anti-fascism in the 1980s and 1990s. During my research I was privileged to have been given access to a wealth of images and literature which I thought I would share for everyone to see. Whilst histories and information is fairly widely available on the Anti-Nazi League, Anti-Fascist Action’s more peaceful rival, histories are only just being written on AFA. Information is fairly scarce and consigned to former activists attics and wardrobes but, with the archive, all can see it! I hope this blog encourages other histories and assists people in creating the historical accounts.

This archive will serve as a lasting dedication to all those who have fought fascism globally.
