If You Can’t Stop It…

By mike flugennockSaturday - December 16th, 2017Categories: liberty, media

In light of how many abysmal government decisions have been shoved through lately despite massive protests — the tax bill, net neutrality repeal, the Keystone Pipeline, the Dakota Access Pipeline, among others — it should be plenty obvious to any Left activist in this country that tired old tactics like petitions, calling up politicians and sign-waving aren’t cutting it anymore (as if they ever did).

And when politicians have gotten to the point where they feel they can openly mock and taunt citizens in public media, it can’t be any more obvious that it’s time for the U.S. Left to up their game and escalate to more revolutionary tactics — the tactics of real resistance: delay, subvert, sabotage.

It’s time for the U.S. Left to stop pretending it can win these struggles by waving signs, dropping banners and beseeching politicians, stop wasting time participating in the meaningless processes of decrepit institutions that don’t serve the People, and start gearing up to fight a real war of revolution.

Delay, subvert, sabotage.

J20 Defendants’ Solidarity Posters

Crimethinc writes in their Call For An International Week Of Solidarity, July 20-17, 2017:

We are calling for a Week of Solidarity with the J20 defendants from July 20 to 27, 2017. July 20 marks six months from the initial actions and arrests during Donald Trump’s inauguration, and on July 27, a motion to dismiss the charges will be argued in court. The case has finally begun to receive the media attention it warrants; with this court date approaching and the cases underway, this is a crucial time for a second Week of Solidarity.

On January 20, 2017, thousands of people came to Washington, DC to protest the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump. In the early morning, blockades shut down security checkpoints and discouraged people from attending the inauguration itself, while impromptu marches and direct actions occurred throughout the day. There was a spirit of defiance in the air.

Midmorning, an “anticapitalist and antifascist” march of several hundred people made clear its opposition not just to Trump but also the system that made Trump possible… After about half an hour, the march was brutally attacked by police, who used chemical and crowd control weapons along with physical force, then boxed in (“kettled”) and mass-arrested people. Everyone on an entire city block was arrested and given the same charge of felony rioting. Approximately 214 arrestees now face a total of eight felony charges, including conspiracy and destruction of property. All of the J20 defendants are now facing up to 75 years in prison.

These 11×17 posters are 300dpi jpg images, approximately 1.7mb each:
