Red Flare is an independent anti-fascist research group using cutting-edge open source and investigative methods to document, expose and oppose the far right in Britain.
We’ve been investigating the fast-growing fascist party Patriotic Alternative (PA), an attempt to unite British fascists in a ‘new BNP’, with the same politics as banned neo-Nazi group National Action. We’ve exposed the true identities of their regional organisers, the locations of secret conferences and have been gathering huge amounts of intelligence on their activities and members, which will be essential to anti-fascists for years to come.
Exposing the real identities of far-right activists is one of the most effective ways of disrupting their ability to organise and disrupting the growth of the far right. We unmasked one leading British fascist who immediately quit the podcast they hosted. Some of the individuals we have exposed have withdrawn from far-right organising completely.
We’ve also worked with the media to expose:
- Extensive links between PA and banned neo-Nazi terror group National Action
- The convicted child sex offender invited to PA events by a regional organiser
- A secret front set up by a far-right group posing as environmentalists
- How a major radio station invited a PA supporter to confront a politician
So far we have funded everything out of our own pockets, but the work we do is expensive and time-consuming. We are all volunteers and do this work on top of our actual jobs. We want to take our investigations to the next level and to have more of an impact - to do so we need your help to pay for server costs, travel and equipment hire.
Donate to support the struggle against fascism at a time when British fascists are re-grouping, and using the internet to spread their message and organise real world events across the country which are being attended by hundreds of people. Far-right groups pose a real threat to our safety and freedoms. Please support our work and give generously.
