On Analogies as Advocacy Tools: Some Thoughts on Appropriation

Because We Must | "We only feel comfortable bringing up lynching and the Holocaust and epidemic gender and sexual violence because they are easy tools to appropriate. It’s easy to be against them, but not so easy to understand the specific conditions that support them, or the implicit attitudes that continue to inform them even in people with the best intentions. It’s not a fair comparison not because nonhumans don’t suffer, but because erasure of difference is not taken seriously and that does significant damage." more...  0 Comments

Lynch Law U.S.A.: State Defends Murderer of Trayvon Martin

Internationalist Group | Outrage over the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin compounds daily as the killer remains free, facing no criminal charges for gunning down the unarmed black youth from Miami Gardens, Florida. On February 26, George Zimmerman, a white self-appointed captain of a "neighborhood watch" team in a gated community in the Orlando suburb of Sanford, shot Martin, a black high-school student, who was returning to the home in the development where he and his father were staying. Police and local prosecutors never charged Zimmerman and accepted his cynical claim that he shot the unarmed youth in "self-defense." Thousands have demonstrated around the country, particularly after police tapes of 911 calls by Zimmerman were released, showing that he was stalking Martin. But the main thrust of liberals is to divert the protests into a movement for gun control laws and to get rid of "Stand Your Ground" laws such as Florida's which make it legal to shoot in self-defense. The ruling-class response deliberately tries to obscure the key fact that this was racist murder. Trayvon Martin was killed for the "crime" of "walking while black." more...  1 Comments

Anarcho-punk zine: PunkWay #7, 2012

Mihanick | Hello, reader/activist! The journal now probably will be published once in half a year, because each release is now required the involvement of lots of people and maximum work from each one, and doing it in shorter period of time would signify that we do not do anything else, but that’s not true. A huge number of events all over the world had happened recently, in which punks do nothing — well, just not allowed. I am glad that the amount of such events has increased, and whether or not the outcome please — is entirely dependent on our participation. more...  0 Comments
