Interview with an Antifascist Prisoner in Sweden

Joel is an antifascist prisoner in Sweden. In July 2014, he was sentenced to five and a half years in prison for attempted murder, violent disorder, and carrying an illegal weapon. The sentence followed a collective defense against a Nazi attack on an antifascist demonstration in Stockholm. The interview was conducted in the fall of 2014. Explanatory notes have been added.

You were sentenced in connection with an antifascist demonstration in Kärrtorp, a suburb of Stockholm, in December 2013. Can you tell us about that day?

During the weeks before the demonstration, there had been trouble in Kärrtorp and the ...........READ MORE

Looking at Hamerquist’s Fascism & Anti-Fascism by J. Sakai
(an excerpt from Confronting Fascism: Discussion Documents for a Militant Movement)  

The Superman is a symbol, the exponent of this anguishing and tragic period of crisis that is traversing European consciousness while searching for new sources of pleasure, beauty, ideal. He testifies to our weakness, but at the same time represents the hope of our redemption. He is dusk and dawn. He is above all a hymn to life, to life lived with all the energies in a continuous tension towards something higher.

Granting No Quarter: A Call for the Disavowal of the Racism and Antisemitism of Gilad Atzmon

As a follow-up to the last post, which was a public statement endorsed by over a hundred anti-imperialists, condemning the views of Gilad Atzmon, i am also re-posting this statement by 23 Palestinian activists, “Granting No Quarter: A Call for the Disavowal of the Racism and Antisemitism of Gilad Atzmon”. This statement was first posted on the U.S. Palestinian Community Network: http://uspcn.org/2012/03/13/granting-no-quarter-a-call-for-the-disavowal-of-the-racism-and-antisemitism-of-gilad-atzmon/

Thinking about Warlordism

Nothing guts a thought so much as apologetic blahblahblah stuck at the beginning, letting all and sundry know that you can’t stand by what you’re about to say without establishing all your escape routes ahead of time. But there you go…

i’ve spent (wasted?) too many hours over the past week trying to put together some thoughts on warlordism. The basic problem i realized yesterday is that i have a bunch of nifty quotes explaining the concept, and a strong sense of how a warlordism should play out (at least in my imagination), but really not much more. For me, ...........READ MORE

Should We Join the White Militia Movement? by Ken Tengu

No, this isn’t a joke. This current of questioning has quietly been drifting around the different island shoals of white radicalism for some time. Finally, someone has pushed it out into print, where it can be judged. That someone is James Murray, an anarchist who proudly proclaims himself a gun-bearing Militia member, and whose supposed goal is to join other angry white men in creating “Disorder…Tribal violence and internecine war” to bring down the automated New World Order. Debating him is Dave Stock, who works with the Southern California anti-racist journal Turning the Tide.  Their exchange can be checked out ...........READ MORE

On peak oil, climate change, overpopulation, and fascism

Foreword

This essay was originally written for the Three-Way Fight anti-fascist blog (threewayfight.blogspot.com) in the late fall of 2005. I’m not sure if it ever appeared there or not, though it was serialed in three parts in the first three 2006 issues of Turning the Tide (available from antiracistaction_la@yahoo.com). The essay was a response to small section of an essay by Don Hammerquist. His essay was part of a larger exchange between him and Stan Goff about imperialism and fascism, which is linked to on the Three-Way Fight blog but can be accessed directly at www.agitatorindex.org/articles/Goff_Hammerquist_exchange.htm . ...........READ MORE

False Front: The Left and the “Anti-Imperialist” Right

As popular resistance to globalization and Western imperialism strengthens around the globe, something disastrous is happening: Leadership of the opposition is swinging steadily from the Left to the radical Right.

Right-wing forces around the world are gearing up to fight against capitalism’s new world order. Every day on the streets of Baghdad, of Mosul, of Tikrit, of Fallujah, of Samarra, of Basra, there is living, dying proof that rightists are in the vanguard of the fight against the Anglo-American occupation of Iraq. It is the same in Afghanistan. Indeed, as Western capital struggles to penetrate and control the so-called Islamic ...........READ MORE
