HOPE not hate seeks to challenge and defeat the politics of hate and extremism within local communities, building resilience against the politics of hate and fear, at a national and grassroots level and this podcast explores the myriad of ways it does so.

Radio 43 | Intelligence Report | EP 10 | WHERE'S YA MONEY GONE?
The Radio 43 team are back for a landmark, special tenth report.
Stephen Yaxley Lennon (Tommy Robinson) has found himself lumbered with a HUGE bill to pay for damages due to libel he inflicted on a child who was being bullied at school, while the post-lockdown, anti-lockdown, street protestors continues to mingle with racist conspiracy theorists and organized far-right elements.

Radio 43 | Intelligence Report | EP 9 | Roxy Goes Deep Cover
Roxy has disguised herself in a BLM tshirt and gone deep cover in the fascist far right. Under the binoculars were the very easily surveilled Patriotic Alternative.
Patriotic Alternative meanwhile were coping very hard with last weeks meme- defending their totally adhered to prohibition on boozing, coming out hard against dry grain snacks, and mocking fellow fascist, Mark Collett's, very silly shorts. Sam Melia (former National Action activist) even wanted to share that he can hold his bowel movements for days when out hiking with his fellow ubermensch. Nice work Sam!
In other news Anjem Choudary is again allowed to broadcast hate, but will certain journalists be stupid enough to amplify it? Katie Hopkins has fallen foul of Australia's tough immigration system. Farage is GB news's new old ham. And the conspiracy theorist milieu causes more vacuous chaos on the streets of London.
Radio 43 | Intelligence Report | EP 8 | NOW That's What I Call A Fascist Fallout!
Patriotic Alternative are a nasty bunch of far-right, and as such have fallen into acrimony as they are wont to. Two key organizers have departed the mountaneering team-cum-nazi party with one of the departed being mocked by his former comrades for his mental health on the way out.
While the far-right finds itself in a tangle, the mainstream right are desperately trying to untangle themselves from a racist fanbase that they have riled up. Having stoked distrust as to the motives of England to take the knee against racism, some in Parliament are SHOCKED to find themselves reaping what they have sown.
Roxy, Nick and Joe invite you to listen, subscribe and write a review to Radio 43.

"When you do things like that about a town like Batley, I've kept really quiet, but I'll tell you something, the far right went down in my estimation when they said that.
We have not resorted to that, but I'll tell you, you can tell them now if they're listening to Radio 43, we're still fighting for the antifascist victory, and the far right have got to go to the ballots and get something, and...
and... I'll tell you, honestly, I will love it if we beat them, love it!"
No Free Speech for Fascists! An Interview with David Renton
The 'No Platform' tactic has important origins in the antifascist movement.
But what happens when the antifascist tactic is broadened to include the many non-fascist actors who may be deemed to have used hate speech? And what are the unintended consequences of this broadening tactic upon the fascists and other far right?
HOPE not hate's Senior Researcher Joe Mulhall interviews David Renton on his forthcoming book: No Free Speech for Fascists: Exploring No Platform in History, Law and Politics.
Radio 43 | Intelligence Report | EP 6 | Nowt and Crosses
The far right continue their shambolic campaign in Batley, finding very little traction amongst the community so far. It's starting to feel like they are in the race for the wrong reasons as Jayda Fransen waves around larger and larger crucifixes and denounces 'fake nationalists' but says nothing of note to the community she claims she wants to represent.
While we laugh at the far right's folly we are also reminded by two court cases that show how dangerous these ideas really are. An ex-UKIP member has been found guilty of ten counts related to terror and explosives, and the founder of System Resistance Network has also been found guilty of multiple charges.
In Batley, despite the attempts of the far right to sow division the local community has come together giving cause for hope.
Equal Rights and Justice
Love the work of taking down the fascist shills, and opening eyes to the tsunami of right wing propaganda we’re living with. The big money behind the far right is a worry, and they’re smart enough to recruit mugs and thugs using conspiracy theories and old tropes, but we have more power than we realise as moderators and mockers of ‘home grown’ extremists.
Facing down the fascist threat.
The Second World War and its events may have told us 'Never Again,' and yet the threat of fascism and far-right extremism has never gone away. From 'Hurrah for the Blackshirts' to today's 'Make America Great Again' and the 'Britain is Full' message behind much of the Brexit campaigning, and now Pandemic uncertaities and new scapegoats, the need for resources, information, resources and awareness to counter the threat has never been greater. This is one such resource. Its informative, educative, and varied in format and content, from news bulletins to book reviews to short documentaries. Recommended and needed.
Valuable insights into the Far right
Always very interesting and shows how we can work together to fight hatred
