ANTIFASCIST BENEFIT GiG

Yesterday a solidarity benefit gig was held in north London to raise money for a recently imprisoned antifascist, arrested for fighting Nazis in Dover, and six anarchists in Turin, Italy on pre-trial detention (remand). It was a great success with over £800 being raised.

The night was a hip-hop night, with poets, freestyles, open-mic and live performances. The night started at a decent pace with small crowds turning-up to check out the space and hear the first performer, spoken-word artist Becky Fury. After her performance, political hip-hop artist Awate performed his latest single, Out Here, stirring up the crowd and getting them in the mood for some more hip-hop! People got up, started dancing and soon George F. ‘The Squat Poet’, Omeza, Apex Zero and others was spitting bars and free-styling as the DJ who provided some classic hip-hop – with locals, squatters, antifascists and all-night ravers dancing together.

The space was provided by Camden Homeless Solidarity, which is based in 156 Kentish Town Road, and is open on weekdays to the local neighbourhood and homeless alike and serves food and drinks, as well as a welcoming space to teach others how to squat and to hand out basic resources for anyone who might need it.
