    Dear Peter Wales – Thank You for your Quadrant online article – very good and true.

    I write a few things for Quadrant occasionally. You may be interested to also see

    some of the origins of this so-called “Antifa” movement – which was part of Trotsky’s

    tactics in the 1920s and 1930s; and also the so-called “United Front” and “United

    Front Against Fascism” which was indeed a “Front” organisation of Communists

    designed to inveigle students and the soft middle-class liberal pacifists into an

    alliance with Communist designs world-wide. Willi Muntzenberg and Egon

    Kisch (who came out here to Australia 1934-35 as a Commo agitator) were

    some of the key figures in this puppet organisation run by the Comintern.

    So Keep up the good work – Cheers, Douglas Hassall Barrister, Canberra

    Thanks Douglas. I appreciate your thoughts, and the additional information. I will do some more reading about the origins of some of the “anti-fascist” groups.
