UPDATE: Volksfront Member Fired After Rose City Antifascists July 31st Day of Action

We are pleased to announce that the fine folks at Morgan Distributing, the company that Cheshire worked for, have discontinued his employment after antifascists made them aware of his fascist organizing.
On July 31, Rose City Antifascists organized an outing of several local Volksfront International members, including Nicholas Cheshire.

We are pleased to announce that the fine folks at Morgan Distributing, the company that Cheshire worked for, have discontinued his employment after antifascists made them aware of his fascist organizing.

A huge "thank you" goes out to everyone who helped with the effort.

Cheshire's termination sends a message to all fascists that organized bigotry is not something we tolerate in our communities!

Taking away someone's living just because they have fascist leanings is not the right approach. When we were confronting the skinheads run by the aryan nations in the streets of Vancouver BC I often fed the skinheads when we would have chance meetings one on one on Granville ave. where I hung out a busked for a living. Celebrating this is also in your face humiliation that you would not want done to you. If this chap had committed criminal acts and therefore got caught and went to jail that is a different matter but driving these folks into poverty will only deepen there resolve and possibly cause a violent backlash.

History serves us well in this matter. The Versaille Treaty of 1922 drove Germany into a deep poverty that later convulsed back at the world killing sixty million. Why could you not simply engage this chap into conversation. Sometimes these folks just need some respect and love. We found that the KKK and the aryan nations were indoctrinating homeless kids that ran away from troubled homes. The kkk and the aryan nations were feeding them, clothing them and shaving their heads in indoctrination rituals.

The other thing we did was to infiltrate their ranks and collect information on criminal and violent acts that the police could be forced into paying attention.

Our biggest success was simply out numbering them on the streets. This was at the time when some skinheads baseball batted an Ethiopian doctor to death in Eugene Oregon in the late eighties.

Think about what the possible consequences and blow back of your actions might be before you do more of this kind of action.

If there is actual direct evidence that this guy is a criminal and has committed actual crimes he has not been punished for then that would be the right course to pursue.

As the radical right wingers in power and on wall st create a global Weimar Republic with their phony austerity scam we must consider what poverty does to individuals in our communities. We must fight for prosperity for all not just the political camp we might belong to. When peoples belly's are full they are less likely to run out the door and join a hate group and start murdering us white lefties and people of the more beautiful shades of shin color.
