December 22, 2018, Cabot, Vermont -As an American, as a Vermonter, and as a Labor leader I have marched many times against US lead wars. However, I do not oppose wars and US military action because I assert war as always unjust and always unnecessary. I am not philosophically a Kantian; this is not a moral imperative for me. I am also no liberal.Continue reading #Rojava: #Trump’s Betrayal Of #YPG – Paris Commune Falls Again?
Steve Bannon is a former campaign and political advisor to current US President Donald Trump and co-founder of the alt-right media platform Breitbart News. He was also involved in Bolsonaro’s election campaign in Brazil. On November 2 Bannon will visit Toronto. Toronto Against Fascismis calling for counter protests.
We are living in ominous times. Every week something new: white supremacist murders in Kentucky and Pittsburgh; the continued rise of the far right in Europe; Trump’s attack on transgender rights; the election of aspiring tyrant Jair Bolsonaro to the Brazilian presidency; the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report that climate catastrophe is likely only about 20 years away. What’s next?
We’ve now passed the one year mark of Trump’s presidency. This time last year we were fast learning what his reign had in store for us. Following the riotous eruptions nationwide on the day of his inauguration, immense numbers of people participated in Women’s Marches, others spontaneously blockaded airports, and hundreds stormed the UC Berkeley campus on February 1st and laid siege to the police-protected venue hosting Milo Yiannopolous.
What happens when folks follow the advice of hand-wringing liberals and ignore Nazis? What happens when militant antifa forces do no present themselves to repel Nazis from rallying in public spaces? The Nazis feel empowered to brutally assault anyone who objects to their genocidal fantasies, as was shown in Charlottesville the night before a Nazi murdered Heather Heyer. On August 11, 2017, a horde of Nazis with tiki torches expressed their “free speech” rights by chanting Nazi slogans, then proceeded to surround and viciously attack a small group of University of Virginia students brave enough to counter-protest Nazi hate.
Don the Con has admitted to obstructing justice, and he should be impeached. We tried to project just that on a billboard next to Oracle Coliseum, after a Warriors game (victory!). IMPEACH didn’t fit the sign as well as Fuck Trump. As fireworks went up so did the chant, “Fuck Trump! Fuck Trump!”
Defend the Bay Bloc Party and Cookout … Against the “Alt-Right”. April 15 | Show Trump supporters, white supremacists, fascists and racists there’s no space for bigotry in the Bay!
With all the noise emanating from Trump’s Twitter account it is interesting to find that Steven Bannon’s account is almost silent. Not interesting in a surprising way but definitely illuminating — indeed a perfect metaphor for how he lurks quietly within Trump’s agenda.
In the early days of the Trump administration, we are seeing Trump’s utilization of executive orders to initiate and/or implement a wide array of right-wing policies. He is starting to make troubling organizational moves, such as the appointment of Steve Bannon- the former executive chairman for Breitbart News, a platform for the Alt-Right- to his National Security Council. We are seeing the emboldenment of the far right and the rising possibility of international warfare with nuclear capable countries such as China. Many are feeling overwhelmed and questioning the best way to resist. None of us has the power to resist these attacks individually; but we do have the power to resist collectively.
