Nashville, Tennessee– On February 6th, 2018 local residents converged on the Cordell Hull Building in Nashville, Tennessee to encourage the Commissioner to support a bill that would effectively decriminalize marijuana use. Local anarchists and antifascists (Nashville AntiFa, Nashville Anarchist Black Cross, and Middle Tennessee Autonomous Network) gathered to advocate for this bill. Although the vast majority of citizens attending were advocating decriminalization to facilitate the utility of medical and recreational cannabis, anarchist and antifascist support was largely predicated on the fact that this bill would be an important cap in the prison pipeline for petty drug crimes.
Although anarchists do not seek to beg an authoritarian government for personal rights, this rally was an important event in which our collectives could engage in thoughtful dialogue and educate others in our community about the prison industrial complex, which profits from arresting non-violent marijuana users, and to advocate personal freedom and bodily autonomy. “Our collectives firmly believe the government has no right to tell you what you can or cannot do with your own body,” one anarchist stated to a rally attendee.

2018 has been busy, folks. We started off with a ridiculous snowball fight with some Proud Boys and Martin Meyers at the Womxn’s March that is barely worth mentioning and had a major confrontation with members of the Traditionalist Worker Party at a Turning Point USA Event in Fort Collins, Colorado. The week prior to the event, five people were spotted putting up “My Borders, My Choice” and “It’s Okay To Be White” flyers. They yelled “See you Friday, Fa**ots!” at participants in an anti-Trump noise demo in Fort Collins.
Jae Em Carico: What got you initially interested and active in social justice?
Zac Henson: It’s hard to put my finger on because I think it was a gradually process. I wasn’t always a community organizer. In my early adulthood, I was an auto mechanic and a plant work, which I got really tired of because of shithead, oppressive bosses and terrible, dirty and hot working conditions. I went to Auburn University at 24 mostly because I just wanted to try something different and because I loved Auburn football.

About 70 activists and community members surrounded and blocked an ICE van in front of LA’s Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles the evening of Thursday, February 15. The action was called for by the Koreatown Popular Assembly 24 hours prior as an emergency response to reports of ICE detaining over a 100 individuals across the city.
On Saturday, February 10th, multiple groups of fascists and far-right conservatives converged in Seattle, WA (occupied Duwamish territory) at Red Square in the center of UW’s campus. A call for anarchists and anti-fascists to oppose this gathering was posted nearly a week prior. The occasion for such a gathering was a “Freedom Rally” that the UW College Republicans had invited Joey Gibson and his group Patriot Prayer from Vancouver, WA to attend. The fascist creep that has been edging its way into the patriot movement for the last several years in the pacific northwest has been well documented by Rose City Antifa, among others. With this in mind, anarchists and anti-fascists took it upon themselves to organize last-minute efforts to sabotage this gathering of fascists and their more center-leaning accomplices. Sure enough, a handful of different fascist and fascist-leaning right-wing groups converged together on campus; The Cascade Legion, Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer, UW College Republicans and various groups of militia-wannabes who patrolled the perimeter of Red Square in their olive-green army fatigues.

Early this morning (February 7th), police, medics, and firefighters responding to a fire alarm in Olympia decided Vaneesa Hopson was having a “mental health crisis” and needed to be “chemically restrained” and brought into custody for evaluation. Soon after, Vaneesa stopped breathing and was pronounced dead.
The administration of University of Nebraska-Lincoln refuses to acknowledge the accomplishments of their most publicly violent student. It’s such a good photo of Dan Kleve too.
The photo was taken in Charlottesville, VA on the morning of August 12, 2017 during the “Unite the Right” rally that turned deadly later in the day when James Fields drove his Dodge Charger into a crowd of anti-racist counter-protesters. In the photo it is still unclear who the two men kicking are, but the one in the center with a backpack raising his flashlight is Daniel Kleve. He’s an UNL student and was profiled by the Anti-Defamation League before the rally as a known hate group leader.

On February 4th, 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles stomped out the New England patriots in a classic expression of proletarian violence versus the statist symbol of a modern day “patriot.” Such highlights as known trump supporter and nerd Tom Brady getting dunked on will continue to inspire us.
