All State propaganda exalts comradeship, for it is this gregarious herd-sense and herd-smell which keeps people from thinking and so reconsiles them to the destruction of their private lives.
Cyril Connolly (1903-1974) English intellectual, literary critic and writer.

Beyond the Politics of the Comfort Zone

"Let my building burn. Justice needs to be served."


Ruhel Islam spoke these words to a friend upon learning that his restaurant, Gandhi Mahal, had caught fire on the second night of the Minneapolis uprising which occurred in response to the police murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020. Islam’s daughter shared his words the next morning on a Facebook post that continued, “Gandhi Mahal may have felt the flames last night, but our firey [sic]drive to help protect and stand with our community will never die! Peace be with everyone.”

That post is one of the many moving statements of solidarity to come from small business owners whose property and livelihoods have been impacted by the displays of resistance that have spread across the US in recent weeks. These declarations represent a shift away from a pair of narratives about political protest that have lon

A time to heal old wounds of racial inequality in the world

https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202006/12/WS5ee2bf66a3108348172527b6.html

The death of George #Floyd, a 46-year-old #black man, in #police custody in #Minnesota on May 25 sparked #multiracial protests across the United States demanding an end to #racial #inequality.

#Protests, #solidarity marches and vigils were held in other countries such as #Germany, #Britain, #Canada, #Brazil, #Australia and #Japan.

While the events have led to a moment of reckoning in the US, they also pried open old wounds of inequality in other parts of the world.

The civil rights movement has been accused of excluding women from its campaign for “a brotherhood of man” and the feminist movement has been accused of excluding women of color. It is both fair and reasonable to suppose that in any movement of goodwill aimed at equality, such exclusions are not deliberate but circumstantial — the product of cultural biases so deep-seated that they require multiple directions of effort and commitment to overcome.
and that's the tricky thing... like when trying to save all, those who are trying to save some under specific injustice, hear your cries to save all, as if same as their persecutor, sowing division. when i'm irked by the phrase "black lives matter", it's not because i dont think so, or because i want to down play the suffering for my own convenience or gain. of course black lives matter. it's the exclusivity of it. yes, we should mend that, and a thousand more too. to try to pick off these prejudices one by one, seems almost like it's a tactic conjured by the subjuga...

This ‘antifa’ group was also #Zionist, #pro-Palestinian and Yiddish-speaking — and it’s trending


by Jordan Kutzik

“Antifa” is in the air. It’s on President Trump’s lips. It’s trending on Twitter, but it’s not a new thing.

Indeed, it has a very Jewish history. It’s an #ideology that was born in order to oppose #Hitler. “Antifa” is short for “anti-fascist.”

It’s so #Jewish that one of the items being shared widely on Twitter right now is the Yiddish and Hebrew manifesto of the #... Show more...

DIY Emergency Handwashing Station Instructions Zine


New zine from Indigenous Action Media which discusses how to build a DIY handwashing station.

We offer this ‘zine in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020. Our unsheltered relatives cannot simply “stay home if they are sick” and “constantly wash their hands” as instructed by callous politicians who, predictably, had no plans to ensure the well being of our relatives.

We’ve assembled this DIY emergency hand washing station (based on several other models) as a way to support our relatives on the streets. Please replicate and improve these plans and ask unsheltered folx where they would be most useful to them. Let’s take care of each other. Capitalism is pandemic. Colonialism is a plague.

If you purchase all the materials they cost about $25-30 each to make (not including some extras like duct tape etc)... Show more...

CO: Denver Democrat faces backlash after tweeting "solidarity" for spreading coronavirus at Trump rallies

Source: Fox News

“Democratic Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca faced conservative criticism Tuesday after sharing a meme on Twitter suggesting she stands in ‘solidarity’ with the idea of spreading coronavirus at President Trump’s campaign rallies. ‘These people are sick,’ Donald Trump Jr. tweeted. CdeBaca, apparently posting in jest, had retweeted a meme that said: ‘For the record, if I do get the coronavirus I’m attending every MAGA rally I can.’ CdeBaca commented: ‘#solidarity Yaaaas!!’ with laughing emojis.” (03/03/20)

For this episode of 12 Rules for WHAT Alex headed to Reading to interview Reading Red Corner, a red gym, martial arts club and solidarity project.


The right wing government of Boris Johnson gives space to new far right and fascist movements. To meet this potential threat the left needs to build a base that encompasses community self defence and solidarity. Notable about Reading Red Corner is their commitment to food solidarity and engagement with community projects across Reading.

Listen to find out more about their project! If there is a red gym in your area consider supporting/ getting involved. If there isn't anything happening we've also got some tips for getting something started.

The Criminalisation of Solidarity With Rojava Should Worry Us All

Last week, the father and brother of Dan Newey, who has joined the People’s Protection Units (YPG) to fight fascist Islamist forces, were charged with funding and assisting terrorism.

The widening web of criminalisation suggests a dramatic escalation of the state’s actions in clamping down on political protest and should concern all who support anti-fascist, feminist and environmental movements.

In the early morning hours of 11 December 2019, Paul Newey’s home was raided by 11 armed officers. He and his son, Sam, were taken for questioning, held for four days in a high-security cell, and released under investigation. They have now both been charged: Paul Newey for funding terrorism and Sam Newey for assisting in preparing for acts of terrorism.

This is a landmark case in the tightening web of criminal

The Duterte regime in the Philippines has intensified attacks against the trade union movement.


The Education International is particularly concerned about the harassment and repression targetting its affiliate, the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT).

Several ACT offices were raided by the police and at least one ACT provincial coordinator was arrested in a new crackdown against unions and civil society organisations in the country.

The repression operations are ongoing, and ACT fears that more of their members could be targeted.

The union had to close offices to ensure the security of its staff, members and officers.

The anti-union climate has caused unionists, teachers and academics to fear for their rights and safety.

As a result, the Education International has launched this new campaign on LabourStart to protest against the repression and to show support for the teachers' union in the Philippines:

Hong Kong Wears Black

A film telling of the Hong Kong insurrection, by Ross Domoney …


October 1 was the 70th anniversary of the people’s republic of China. On this occasion, up to one million people came out to protest. Nearly all demonstrators wore black and the frontline was occupied by a black bloc of over 10,000-strong, ready to resist and fight the police. It was the first time that Hong Kong police shot a live round at a protester, taking the crisis to a new level.

Ross Domoney was there with his video camera to capture the day as it unfolded.

“The Battle against anti-Semitic ideology and its understanding of ‘fetishized anti-capitalism’ is an integral part of any emancipatory and communist effort. 81 years later, we still remember that night’s crime in November 9 1938.

81 years passed since that terrible night on November 9th, 1938, which marked the beginning of systematic acts of extermination of #Jews throughout #Europe. Following the defeat of the communist movement in Germany and the seizure of power by the Nazi party in 1933, anti-Semitic policies were introduced under Hitler’s regime. Over half-million Jews living in Germany were transformed by the regime into scapegoats for all the problems the country: the defeat in World War I, hyperinflation (1921-1923) and the Great economic Depression of the 1930s. The culmination of this crime was #Auschwitz... Show more...
