Smash Hate 2002 – Make the Maritimes a Nazi-Free Zone

On May 10-12 converge in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada for SMASH HATE 2002. The weekend will feature concerts, teach-ins, panel discussions, and a spirited march through downtown Moncton.

Moncton is a center for Nazi activity and organizing in Atlantic Canada. There have been cross burnings, racist graffiti, and street confrontations with minorities and anti-racist youth. This isn’t isolated to Moncton. The Heritage Front and National Alliance are getting increasingly active in Halifax. Boneheads in St. John and Fredericton are increasing their organizing.


The Atlantic Canadian fascist movement is at a crucial stage. They are recruiting, networking and it is only a matter of time before they get out of control. Only a strong and diverse display by the residents of Atlantic Canada and their supporters will put these goons on notice that their shit will not fly here. We also have a good opportunity to build a strong anti-racist presence in the Maritimes that will make future racist organizing efforts futile.

The weekend will also feature discussions on tactics, local issues (such as environmental racism in Africville, N.S. and white privilege), movies, and over a dozen bands in a 3-day concert.
