IronMarch was a far-right website describing itself as a fascist social network. The site was allegedly founded by Russian nationalist Alexander Slavros.

The site appears to have been home to many white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, and garden variety right-wing extremists. A slogan on the site's homepage read "Gas the kikes, race war now, 1488 boots on the ground!" Unlike sites like Stormfront, which attempt to cloak their racism in code words and a veneer of civilized debate, IronMarch was out and proud with its bigotry, and contained explicit calls for and celebrations of murder and genocide against non-whites, Jews, LGBT people, and everybody else they didn't like. Members of the forum expressed sympathy toward Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik, and a number of violent neo-Nazi paramilitary fascist groups, such as Atomwaffen Division and Antipodean Resistance, were formed there.

In February 2015, three people were arrested for planning to commit a mass shooting at a shopping mall in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Valentine's Day. One of the suspects, 23-year-old Lindsay Souvannarath of Illinois, was found to have been an active member of IronMarch and to have made many online posts in favor of fascist or neo-Nazi ideologies, despite her ironically being of mixed race herself.[1] The other two suspects, two young men from the suburbs of Halifax named Randall Shepard and James Gamble (the former being Souvannarath's online boyfriend), were also involved with online circles fascinated with dictators and spree killers, and met Souvannarath through them.

As of late 2017, Iron March seems to have gone down, for unknown reasons.
