Rebecca Hughes works at the Regal Fox Tower
846 SW Park Ave, Portland, OR 97205
At 9:30 am on July 7th, members of the American Freedom Party staged an anti-Immigration protest outside of the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) offices on NE 103rd and Glisan in Portland. In retaliation for this action, Rose City Antifa is releasing the workplace information of a member of the American Freedom Party:
Rebecca Hughes works at the Regal Fox Tower
846 SW Park Ave, Portland, OR 97205
Rebecca (Barrett) Hughes, whom we originally wrote about here, has been an active member of the local chapter of the American Freedom Party as well as a member of a Mississippi-based Christian Identity group called the Nationalist Movement, which advocates against race mixing and homosexuality. We believe “Barrett” to be a pseudonym and that her real last name is Hughes.
Getting racists fired from their jobs is an effective way of disrupting their organizing. Last time we outed an AFP member at her workplace, we succeeded in getting her fired. You can see her hilarious reaction in this video where she posted about it on YouTube.
**Reposted from the YouCaring.com fundraiser site for Dylan Sutherlin's prison release support!!!**
In May 2012 five antifascists were arrested and, in early 2013, took non-cooperating plea deals for 3 felonies each for taking part in emphatically stopping a meeting of white supremecisits organizing under the guise of the Illinois European Heritage Association at a restuarant in Tinley Park, IL. For more information, see tinleyparkfive.wordpress.com.
Dylan Sutherlin is the fourth of the five to be released, rejoining us in July . Bloomington ABC , NYC ABC , and Sacramento Prisoner Support have launched a campaign to start a release fund for Dylan. By the time Dylan is released he'll have been locked up for just over two years, will have a felony record, and certain things just won't be the same. Lets help him make a smooth transition! Lets raise some money and secure a release fund that will welcome him upon his release.
If you'd like to write to Dylan to let him know you're thinking of him and that you're glad he's getting out soon, I'm sure he'd love to hear from you. His current address is as follows:
Dylan Sutherlin M34022

Republished from the Anti-Racist Action website:
Hack pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to murder, and her agreement outlines the following details:
Melissa Hack, along with her brother, Ross Hack, John “Polar Bear” Butler, Leland Jones, Daniel Hartung and Mandie Abels were members of various skinhead groups.
Hartung’s name surfaced during the state case — with Butler’s defense attorneys trying to pin the murders on him and Ross Hack — but he has never been charged, according to court records. Abels secretly pleaded guilty in federal court in 2012 to one count of conspiracy to murder, according to a later unsealed plea agreement.
Melissa Hack said her brother Ross told her and Abels to meet Newborn at the Las Vegas body piercing shop where he worked, and invite him on a date in the desert. Newborn was targeted because he was a member of an anti-racist group and because he was thought to be sleeping with Hartung’s girlfriend.
Shersty was with Newborn when the women went to make the date. Ross Hack told his sister if Shersty came along on, he would “have to get dealt with.”
The women met the men back at the piercing shop, and Melissa Hack paged Butler a pre-arranged code to give them a heads-up.
Ross Hack, Butler, Jones and Hartung were waiting for them when they arrived.
The women introduced Newborn and Shersty to Ross Hack and Jones. Melissa then went to get a beer and saw Jones and her brother shoot Shersty. Newborn sprinted into the desert — Butler was on his heels, shotgun in hand.
“We just shot the guy, let’s go,” Butler said to his girlfriend when he returned.
The next morning Ross Hack told his sister she needed to go back and pick up bullet casings. Melissa Hack went with Butler and one of his friends, but they were spotted by people riding all-terrain vehicles.
The prosecution and defense recommend Melissa Hack spend 20 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release. She could serve less time if her cooperation proves helpful.
Melissa Hack is set to be sentenced on Sept. 8. Her brother and Jones are scheduled to go to trial on Aug. 12. Butler’s whereabouts in the prison system are a mystery, suggesting that he might also be brokering a deal with federal prosecutors.
Death in June is once again on tour and this time they plan on making their way to our neck of the woods. Death In June is the neofolk project of Douglas Pearce that is infamous for its promotion of patriarchal and National Socialist ideas and use of fascist imagery and references to Nazi mysticism to spread fascist agit-prop. Last fall Rose City Antifa and allies released a call to action to oppose their tour and DiJ was met with resistance at many venues and had shows shut down. Unbelievably they are now planning on coming to Portland! The last time Pearce tried to play Portland, it did not go well for him. Let’s have a repeat performance and shut down this fascist act!
Death in June plans on following that up the next night with a show in Seattle. Let’s show DiJ that they are not welcome n the Pacific Northwest!
Join us in throwing full opposition into each stop on this tour. Even if you do not live in a city where DiJ is slated to play, you can still assist in efforts to stop this fascist act from having a platform. Show solidarity with antifa comrades on the ground!

Cody Lee Sutherlin of the Tinley Park 5 is due to be released from prison in June. So Bloomington ABC, NYC ABC, and Sacramento Prisoner Support have launched a campaign to start a release fund for Cody Lee.
From j.mp/CodyLee: “In May 2012 five antifascists were arrested and, in early 2013, took non-cooperating plea deals for 3 felonies each for taking part in emphatically stopping a meeting of white supremacists organizing under the guise of the Illinois European Heritage Association at a restaurant in Tinley Park, Illinois. For more information, see tinleyparkfive.wordpress.com.
Cody Lee Sutherlin is the third of the five to be released, rejoining us in early June. Bloomington ABC, NYC ABC, and Sacramento Prisoner Support have launched a campaign to start a release fund for Cody Lee. By the time Cody Lee is released he’ll have been locked up for just over two years, will have a felony record, and certain things just won’t be the same. Let’s help him make a smooth transition! Let’s raise some money and secure a release fund that will welcome him upon his release. Your donations will help Cody pay bills and costs of living while he looks for a job; buy a phone; and pay for license plates and insurance for his bike.”
Please remember that prisoner support doesn’t end when a comrade is released. Through halfway houses, supervised release, parole, or probation, there is usually state supervision beyond the initial sentence. Also, prison is traumatic. And of course there is the stigma of being a former prisoner that effects nearly every aspect of one’s life. All of this adds up to the less obvious, but equally necessary, support needed when our loved ones come home. Donate to your ability and show an anti-fascist comrade how we welcome folks home.
If for whatever reason you’d rather donate to Cody Lee offline, please make the check payable to Cody Sutherlin and mail it to:
Sacramento Prisoner Support
Post Office Box 163126
Sacramento, California 95816
If you’d like to write to Cody Lee to let him know you’re thinking of him and that you’re glad he’s getting out soon, he’d love to hear from you. His current address is:

Antifascists gathered yesterday in Waterfront Park to oppose the White Man March. A series of these racist marches were planned across the country by the White Nationalist organization, American Freedom Party, and AFP's activist branch, Free America Rally. The local chapter of AFP has previously staged two “marches” in Waterfront Park. These have been very short events that are mainly opportunities to publish propaganda on their website. They were not able to use that tactic yesterday as anti-racists pre-empted their efforts.
In addition to the public call out, RCA published another article exposing new Oregon and Washington AFP members’ personal information. We also did a banner drop from the Alberta St. I-5 overpass that said “No Nazis in Rose City”.
Rose City Antifa’s call to action seems to have intimidated AFP into not turning out. Instead a small handful of AFP staged a brief photo op in Olympia, Washington. White supremacists dishonestly labeled photos of the pathetic event in Olympia as being in Oregon to try and save face after the kibosh was put on their Portland plans.
A few random boneheads tried to creep in to check stuff out in the park. Suffices to say, they were easily dispatched with by anti-racist security teams.
Despite not having the opportunity to stomp a Nazi march yesterday, much fun was had by the antifas and allies that attended. RCA gave out free T-shirts and hats, and there was live ska music at the gathering point. Allies from many different groups were in attendance.
When it was determined that AFP and their bonehead friends were not going to show, antifascists took to the street for an unpermitted march around downtown Portland. A number of pedestrians along the march route decided to join in to show their opposition to racism as well. The anti-racist march maintained high energy from start to finish. The Portland Police were not able to stop it. This march showed loudly and clearly that there are a large number of people that are willing to stand up and fight racism here in the Rose City.
Rose City Antifa feels that an important message went out yesterday to all the fascist scum that if they try to organize in the Rose City, they will be met by an army of anti-racists. We are extremely proud of the working class solidarity our hometown showed yesterday and we hope to continue to build on that momentum to keep our streets free of fascist scum.

The American Freedom Party is organizing a "White Man March" today across the country. In honor of this, we would like to publish the personal information of a few more members of the local chapter. For further information on local members of the American Freedom Party see our previous article here. Please join us today at Waterfront Park where we will gather to oppose these fascists.

Bryan Margetts, pictured here with misspelled "feedom" sign, is a Northwest Front member turned AFP activist. He is involved in the Overpasses for America campaign as well as the White Genocide Project, both AFP/FAR enterprises. Recently he has been seen at a number of American Freedom Party and Free America Rally events including attending the protest of the "racist media" in Milwaukie. This media protest seems to have been a response to the negative press that AFP received following their "White Genocide" flyering event in Milwaukie a few months prior. Margetts was at both AFP events. In addition he tabled at a gun show in Portland last April with Gary Purdy, and Tyler Cole.
Last Known Address: 4167 NE 32nd Pl, Salem, OR

Brent is another Northwest Front member that has joined forces with the American Freedom Party. He attended the Golden Dawn memorial AFP/FAR activists organized. Brent identifies as a Satanist, posting in the past to modernchurchofsatan.com and gothic.net under his handle AdversaryBTP. He is under the same handle on twitter and youtube, though he also has a youtube account under AusDenBergen.
Along with posting to Satanist and Goth forums, Brent is into Black Metal, so folks involved with that scene should be aware of this fascist attending shows and events.

The American Freedom Party, a White Nationalist organization, is planning on taking to the streets this coming Saturday for a “White Man March” in cities across the country. Tyler Cole, the leader of the local AFP chapter is organizing the Washington and Oregon event here in Portland. (For more information on Cole and local AFP, please see our recent two part article.) This Saturday’s march is slated to be a “lightning” event, sticking to AFP’s usual pattern of fast and dirty events that aim to avoid antifascist opposition while snapping lots of pictures for their website. This tactic will not work. We must show these fascists that we will not tolerate a White Supremacist mobilization in our city.
We are calling for the Rose City to stand up to racism this Saturday! We will never let the fascists have our streets!
WHERE: Waterfront Park at the Japanese American Historical Plaza
WHEN: Saturday March 15th at 10 a.m.
(///) SEE YOU IN THE STREETS (///)
January 22, the 2014 Public Interest Environmental Law Conference (PIELC / ELAW) announced its decision to have Lierre Keith for one of its keynote speakers. This was incredibly unfortunate to hear, given Lierre’s well-documented history of transphobia and in particular trans-misogyny in the form of denying the existence and experience of trans women. Though they have since removed their original post of the announcement after the public outcry that ensued, Keith is still expected to be speaking at the conference.
We feel that since an anti-queer anti-woman agenda is an inextricable part of the modern fascist agenda, it is our responsibility to intervene when queers or women, in this case trans women, are under attack in our movement.
The National Socialist Movement planned a “Meet and Greet” in Portland for yesterday Sunday, February 23rd. While antifascists were there to confront the NSM, no NSM actually showed for this event. This non-event was scheduled by Stacy Hoffman. While it is definitely a good thing that no boneheads turned out for this, we feel that it is important to continue to put pressure on Hoffman so that she will entirely stop attempting to revive the corpse of the Oregon NSM.
In this article we will outline the current organizing structure of the NSM as well as give some background on the various incarnations of NSM “units” in Oregon over the past ten years.
Part One: Current NSM Organizing in Oregon
Phone number: 503-839-2276
Address: 4720 NE 110th Ave, Unit #2 Portland, OR 97220
Stacy Hoffman is currently the only person identifying as NSM in Portland. Stacy Hoffman has been involved in the NSM for a little over a year. In that time, her activities with the group have included a trip to Leith, North Dakota, where she met up with other Oregon NSM members, including long time Eugene NSM leader and recent American Freedom Party “activist” Jimmy Marr. Hoffman and Marr traveled to Leith to attend an NSM “Town Hall” meeting in support of fellow white supremacist Craig Cobb. Cobb is a notorious neo-Nazi who established the Podblanc video sharing site and was recently attempting to take over the town of Leith as an all-white enclave. NSM member Kynan Dutton and his wife Deborah both moved from Sheridan, Oregon to Leith, ND in October of 2013 in order to assist Cobb.
