• An Anarchist perspective on the referendum in catalonia:

    paulfree14 – Sunday, 1 October - 15:30

  • 'We don’t believe in new states, especially not within a capitalist framework. We are convinced that we need an anti-capitalistic social transformation where production, consumption and decision-making are self-organized and in the hands of the people, a social transformation without states and borders. But we also can’t look away when the Spanish state is showing its ugly fascist #Francoist face and repress people.

    1976 former Francoist minister Manuel Fraga founded the People’s Alliance. Fraga authorized the execution of political prisoners under the Franco regime. Fraga was also one of the writers of the new Spanish constitution which was approved in 1978 and was never charged for the crimes he committed during the Franco years

    The now governing Partido Popular (#PP) of prime-minster Mariano Rajoy was a re-foundation (in 1989) of the People’s Alliance, again founded by Manuel #Fraga.

  • Before I'd make the quote from an article I'd like to share with you, let me start with saying that #antifa is first an ideology positionizing oneself against #fascism. People being anti-fascist have many different strategies and aproaches. Antifa is not a group but an idea. People gather and organize themself around.

    Ok here some quote from the article:

    ''The first major problem with criticism of #antifa is a studied unwillingness to learn anything about them

    They believe that fascist and violent racist groups have to be confronted in their infancy, when they number in the dozens, lest they soon number in the thousands or even millions

    antifa's primary tactics are nonviolent - protests, online research, naming and shaming — but also believe that violence is an appropriate response to inherently violent ideologies

  • Is punching a Nazi bad?

    paulfree14 – Sunday, 20 August - 11:44 – 20 August

  • ...still ppl trying to put anti fascists as being same bad as fascists. 'They are both extreme, so they are both equal bad.'

    A Telegraph writer just stated that: https://mastodon.social/media/FJMthS9_sTjFQ9YKI9U

    All in all we need to remember:

    Fascists where calling for an event to force their ideology on others, such as deportation. #antifa have been there to protect minorities. Even tho they are far-left, they haven't been there to force their ideology on others. #Fascists did.

    • Cornel West & Rev. Traci Blackmon: Clergy in Charlottesville Were Trapped by Torch-Wielding Nazis

      We continue our roundtable discussion on violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend as thousands of neo-Nazis, KKK members and other white nationalists began descending on the city to participate in the "Unite the Right" rally. Thousands of counterprotesters met in Charlottesville, including clergy, students, Black Lives Matter activists, and protesters with the antifascist movement known as "antifa." We are joined by two clergy members and a local Black Lives Matter activist who helped organize the demonstration. Rev. Traci Blackmon is executive minister of Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ. During a live interview with MSNBC at the march on Saturday, she was forced to flee as counterprotesters were attacked around her. Cornel West was also on site and describes the scene. We also speak with Jalane Schmidt, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Virginia.
