The Green Anticapitalist Front, as stated in its Aims and Principles is committed to organising in a way that is supportive and inclusive, and therefore to driving out abusive or bullying behaviour wherever it presents. This includes the challenging of perceived tolerance of sexual violence and/or covering for abusers.Continue reading “Statement in reference to the RCG”
At the Rally Against Capital, the Green Anti-capitalist Front wanted to show that it’s not regular working people but the rich, the bankers and those who protect them who are causing climate change. We led our demonstration to the London Stock Exchange, a centre of finance and capital for some of the most destructive companies on the planet, to attempt to disrupt some of their capitalist system.Continue reading “The Rally Against Capital”
The Green Anticapitalist Front, as stated in its Aims and Principles (https://greenanticapitalist.org/aims-principles/) organises in a supportive, inclusive way, free from bullying or abusive behaviour. This includes sexual harassment and abuse, as well as covering up and tolerating such behaviour. GAF London has been approached several times by people outside the organisation about why we were organising with the RCG (Revolutionary Communist Group) who are accused of all the aforementioned actions.
We want to assure everyone that we are taking these accusations very seriously and are in the process of investigating them and holding discussions with the RCG. A decision and statement will be released as soon as all parties are satisfied.Continue reading “Statement in relation to Revolutionary Communist Group”
While Green London is still holding strong in the former Paddington Green Police Station, we felt it was unfair to bring members of the public into a situation where they could be exposed to the aggressive and threatening behaviour of the police and bailiffs. We have therefore, while continuing our occupation of Green London, decided to open a new social space for our week of action: the Green Revolutionary Anticapitalist Social Space. GRASS!Continue reading “New week of action venue: welcome to GRASS!”
Was nice to meet Oli (and Rich!) from JOE.co.uk the other day! The GRASS (Green Radical Anticapitalist Social Space) was originally formulated as the result of a public assembly to come up with ideas to tackle capitalism in ways that not only ‘stick it to the man’, but demonstrate that it’s entirely practical and possible to build a new society. A society based on fairness, compassion, co-ordination and communal working and living. The sort of society where no one will be without a home or a chance to live a fulfilling life.Continue reading “Green Radical Anticapitalist Social Space (GRASS) in Paddington”
On the night of February 7th, a group of activists from the Green Anti-Capitalist Front, alongside squatters and other activists, occupied the abandoned High security police station at Paddington Green. The intention is to hold the space and turn it into a community centre, the activities of which will culminate in a week of action against capitalism.Continue reading “Paddington Green Police Station occupation in anticipation of our week of action”
The British government has been elected and, with the Tories in power, it looks bleaker for the future of our planet than ever before.
Now is the time to fight back.
To show resistance to the ecocide being committed by the capitalist class and supported by many in Parliament, we call you to join us for a Week of Action! Every day for a week in February (24/02–02/03) we will be organising events and protests to let the leaders and the people of this country know that we are here to fight for the survival of our planet by facing capitalism head on.
From reclaiming unoccupied buildings for our communities, organising workshops and social events to raise awareness and encourage self-reliance, to reclaiming public space for nature by guerilla gardening, and being loud and clear about our rage against profit-making by stockbrokers and their like at the expense of our planet and fellow humans – join our Week of Action, whether by organising yourselves locally or joining our actions, to let them know that even under Tory rule we’ll keep fighting capitalism for our planet!
Email email@example.com to get involved with organising.

On Friday we woke up to news that the Conservative Party, spearheaded by their new far-right vanguard, had won the election. The “FPTP” voting system and most media – stitched to the Tories – all working as intended, the Tories won a huge majority of seats without even half the votes of those who voted. We all know who will benefit from this continued slide into inequality and it’s not the majority, and definitely not the most vulnerable. On Saturday we awoke to the announcement that the island’s most infamous fascist Stephen Yaxley-Lennon had apparently joined the Conservative Party. There is no beating around the bush now: Britain has been captured by far-right nationalists who are waging an ecocidal class war.Continue reading “Where next for socialism in Britain?”
Hello friends! We are publishing the call from the Internationalist Commune and Isles Coordination for the NATO summit on the 3rd and 4th. The call is for people to join us in London for a mass demo on the 3rd, marching on Buckingham Palace where NATO leaders will be met by the queen, and/or to organise autonomous actions where you are on the 4th. Erdogan has confirmed his attendance, so it’s important we get as large a mobilisation and as many actions as possible!

We have organised this protest to demonstrate the contribution British banks and supermarkets are making towards environmental disaster and ecological destruction. We will be moving around Glasgow City Centre to picket a number of stores, with an open mic for anybody who wants to speak out against climate change. With very little time left to save our planet before it is too late, we need to take action now!
Saturday 23 November, 12noon – 2pm
Assemble the Royal Concert Hall Steps,
Capitalism is extinction! Imperialism is destruction!
