In Radio Free Winnipeg's 6th episode on Fascism and antifa Scott and Greg discuss the limits of antifa. While there have been several recent successes, ie Richard Spencer's comments not being able to hold public events, there are still limits to antifa.

While making the public cost high for Fascists when they gather or organize in public is key this still doesn't truly challenge or dismantle the racism and white supremacy at the heart of our society. How do we scale the anti-racism and anti-capitalism of antifa to a larger movement?

To start the show Scott and Greg talk about the recent events in Syria and how the left generally have "lost the plot" when it comes to offering a coherent and effective anti-war and anti-imperialism stance.

In the 5th episode of our series on Fascism and Anti-Fascism Scott and Greg begin to dig into the history of anti-fascist movements, both in Europe, as well as in the context of Western Canada. 

They discuss the significance of the Spanish Civil War and how opposition to Franco's fascist movement help set the stage for contemporary anti-fascism. 

They also look at how punk rock and metal scenes were microcosms of these waves of fascist resurgence, and introduced youth to opposing fascism.

In the second half of the episode they interview longtime anti-fascist organizer from Calgary, Alberta, Jason Devine.
