We’re looking for links/resources useful to the Left at Starkadders suggestion. This can be archives, support groups, study groups, whatever people think can assist in building up a stack of easily accessible tools necessary to the tasks ahead. Perhaps keep articles – unless they’re longform, to the What You Want to Say thread.

Not specifically a “Left” resource, but the Trove Index of Australian newspapers has some interesting articles. I think some of us may find this sympathetic article on James Larkin by a famous author interesting.

I suspect many of us will appreciate this line:

“Could any nation survive the disgrace of suffering the great-jawed and low-browed John Redmond to toe its leader?”

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a list of Extremist right-wing groups in the US, as well as a “Hatewatch” that monitors far-right activists:

If you’re worried about being trolled or doxxed, this Intercept article has a list of “anti-harassment resources” at its end:

Many historians are alarmed about white supremacists using the myth of a “racially pure” medieval or ancient Europe to fuel their bigotry. It’s quite common to see Neo-Nazis evoking Romans, Vikings or Crusaders as spiritual antecedents. So here, from the website Holy My Mead, is a long list of academic articles rebutting the myths about medieval history put about by the far right:
