    Anti/Fascism in the USA

    We are living in troubling times. The election of Donald Trump not only speaks to the current state of US politics, but to an ongoing shift across the Western world. In Europe far-right and nationalist parties are making electoral gains not seen since the Second World War, while their street level movements are growing in size and influence by the day. While Canada has it’s own unique history of reactionary movements, the far-right here has been emboldened by the events south of the border; racists are increasing their public activities, and attempts are being made to ...........READ MORE

  • Those Who Have No Blood On Their Hands

    Words fail me… i spent much of yesterday and the night before trying to write, but nothing measured up to the horror of the Quebec City massacre, where a young far-rightist shot up a mosque, killing six and wounding many more

    i will come back to this, but as things are right now, all i could do was the following; these images can be downloaded from facebook, or here. The text on each image translated as “It wasn’t me who fired — My hands are clean.”

    These are politicians and journalists, most but not all from Quebec, who have ...........READ MORE

No platform and ‘community defense’ (Don Hamerquist)

There is a clear need for some critical thinking about the current approaches to these issues. Perhaps I am suffering from the excessive caution of old age – I wouldn’t mind being shown that was the case – but I’m afraid that our side is heading for some rough times – politically and otherwise.

We have always been on the ‘left’ side of these issues, taking positions and actions that even led some critics to call us the ‘macho assholeists’. We attempted to maintain and develop a strategic and tactical justification for militance and confrontation that could take advantage of ...........READ MORE

The Work of Settler Colonialism II: Emergent Solidarities

The Work of Settler Colonialism Symposium was launched in April 2016 at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (see page of 2016 event: https://tinyurl.com/wosc2016). This event brought together conversations between the emerging field of settler colonial studies and scholars engaging in the continual crises of neoliberal capitalism with new approaches to labour, capitalism, and resistance against the contemporary issues of late capitalism. This convergence of fields brought to light the interrelations of settler colonialism, anti-Blackness, and neoliberal capitalism as they operate through and within each other. The symposium offered scholars across interdisciplinary fields the opportunity ...........READ MORE

Fachos et libéraux hors de nos vies !

facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/409609616083978/

Face aux abus des dirigeants qui s’en mettent plein les poches en pillant les fonds publics, l’extrême droite tente de récupérer la colère du peuple pour faire passer son discours de haine.

Dans ce contexte, un groupe nébuleux appelle à manifester le 23 avril (à partir de la (Place des arts) contre le PLQ sous prétexte de dénoncer notre gouvernement corrompu.

Nous savons cependant que plusieurs membres de divers groupes d’extrême droite sont derrière l’organisation de cette manifestation et vont y participer. Après avoir frappé un mur deux fois en mars (4 et 25), les fachos tentent de ...........READ MORE

The Context for the Trump Phenomenon (David Gilbert, 2/19/17)

The bizarre and dangerous rise of Donald Trump did not just pop up out of the thin air. The very foundation of the U.S. is white supremacy. This country is, at its core, imperialist, patriarchal and based in a range of ways human beings are delimited and demeaned. Nor are the specific and terribly virulent politics of racial scapegoating brand new. Always a part of U.S. culture, that approach became more central in mainstream politics, with various ups and downs in the rhetoric, since the end of the 1960s. A stable imperialism prefers to rule by keeping the population passive, ...........READ MORE
