A growing encampment has established itself at the Northwest Detention Center immigration prison in Tacoma. People have been camping out for several nights now, sharing food, making friends, and building capacity toward abolishing ICE and ending the violent horror of borders. There is free food, a badminton net, free literature, engaging conversation, and lots more. Every day at 9am and 9pm is a family-friendly noise demo for the prisoners inside, and there’s lots of room for other forms of solidarity and resistance as well.
A red light shone down upon the camp, casting a light reminiscent of fires of civilizations past. Similar camaraderie hung in the air. It was somewhere around midnight in Portland, Oregon; in front of the soon to be former ICE offices.
Statement by Jalhouse Lawyers Speak on behalf of the National Prison Strike core.
Since the last July 25th International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners, the worldwide struggle against the nightmare of fascism and the far-right has grown and intensified. The news bulletins steadily report the racist and bigoted attacks, the harassment of journalists, the demonization of refugees and migrants, and the increasing presence and violence of organized fascist and far-right groups. While the bigoted, nationalist imagination reproduces itself on a global scale, it also attempts to turn us all into prisoners of the border.

On July 1, hate groups like La Meute and Storm Alliance have announced a demonstration in Montreal against illegal immigration. Not a good move, because we do not like racists and we do not like July 1st, the colonial Canada Day.
While German CDU/CSU factions in parliament are fighting each other in public about border closures in German media in a debate full of racism, other EU member states install apartheid rules on public beaches and torture people at their borders.
Well done to all who opposed the racists and fascists in London and York on Saturday. The rally in support of Tommy Robinson in York completely flopped, but London was a different story. Up to 15,000 turned out in Whitehall for the far right’s imprisoned poster boy.
Statement by the Autonomous Center Kim Hubert in Salzwedel, Germany, after the fascist attack against the free space on June 5: Targeted attack on Autonomous Center (AZ) Kim Hubert Salzwedel, Germany.

I’ve written this analysis as an introduction to the structural and social politics of fascism and anti-fascism. This text is meant to examine mechanisms of the fascist ideology not often touched on in popular media discourse, while also examining possibilities for confronting the fascist influence in our political and economic system.
