Seven Theses on the Three-Way Fight

The seven theses I propose here were first published as part of a preface to T. Derbent’s German Communist Resistance 1933–1945, published by Foreign Languages Press (2020). I have reworked parts of that preface here as a standalone essay that aims to summarize the praxis of the three-way fight and forecast problems and prospects going forward.

“Militant antifascists must maintain a revolutionary horizon to avoid being absorbed within the ideological parameters of liberal antifascism. At the same time, antifascist work cannot merely be absorbed into revolutionary work; antifascism is community self-defense.”

Berlin: Free Adel – Free all Antifascists

Berlin. In March 2021, thousands of people gathered in Berlin under the motto “Peace – Freedom – Sovereignty” for a “march” against the state’s corona measures. Among them were many conspiracy theorists, corona deniers and neo-Nazis. In the context of this demonstration, there was a serious incident between antifascists and right-wing demonstrators in the Tiergarten. As a result, our friend and comrade Adel and other people were suddenly arrested by the Berlin police with a massive posse. Adel had to wait for hours in a small, cramped cell in the prison van without knowing what he was being accused of. When asked, the cops were annoyed and repeatedly made racist remarks towards him.

Where Movements Go to Die: An Analysis of Middle-Class Counterinsurgency in Lincoln, Nebraska [Part 1]

Content Warning: This essay focuses on a social justice movement and therefore discusses police violence against black people, sexual assault, and self-defense against the police in the context of protests.

This essay is part one of two pieces Irruptions will be releasing regarding the Fall 2021 anti-FIJI protests in Lincoln, Nebraska. This is a continuation of our work from the Summer of 2020, in which we examined the correlation between the arrival of activist leadership onto protest scenes and the subsequent dissipation of political energy within those protests. This pattern has now repeated itself on UNL’s campus in the wake of what appears to be another successfully defeated movement. Emphasizing the importance of study for those engaged in political action, we aim to offer a lens by which to understand this cycle of defeat in which people in Lincoln are trapped.
