who are antifa? / Portland
today BIPOC, queer, trans, and disabled comrades were on the front lines. like literally parked their chairs in front of the black bloc to the point the police tried to arrest them in order to get better access to arresting others. the man on the left was arrested. the bravery shown literally brought me to tears and has me reflecting on what it even means to hold the line
How to respond to a vehicular terrorist
So I'm a New York City based street medic and in light of the fact that automobiles seen to have become the fascist terrorist's weapon of choice at demonstrations I though it would be a good idea to talk about what you can do to in the event that you find yourself in this horrific situation. At the very least, having a plan will help keep panic down.
You should practice these skills.
GE, Corporate Financial Scandal
In a 175-page report posted online, forensic accountant Harry Markopolos and his fraud team allege that GE is committing $38 billion in accounting fraud.
“[I]t’s the biggest, bigger than Enron and WorldCom combined,” he wrote. “In fact, GE’s $38 Billion in accounting fraud amounts to over 40% of GE’s market capitalization, making it far more serious than either the Enron or WorldCom accounting frauds.”
lol who trusts corporations
It's all about the narrative. Think about this when you're thinking about solutions.
Any system that doesn’t follow the structure of “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need” is unjust to those with lesser abilities or greater needs
And dispose of the thought of determining anyone else’s abilities or needs, now or ever. The solution will never be to categorize and individually diagnose every single condition that might affect someone’s ability, giving Latin names to the ones that you decide deserve respect and telling everyone else to suck it up and stop being lazy
Radical disability/neurodiversity justice is guaranteeing access to all material needs to everyone, and making all labor and activities voluntary and consensual. No one should have the power to decide what or how much someone needs, or what or how much someone should provide. No one should have the power to decide who’s “gaming the system” or “just being lazy”
The able-bodied, the neurotypical, and those who suffer from allism can feel free to boost this

Turns out that destroying gathering place for nazis/oppressors actually works and we should do it and continue to do it.
Just saying "they will move somehere else" is totally stupid and doesn't understand the principle of war of cost.
4chan, 8chan, hehe
So yeah, I hold no sympathy for these people. They actively ruin the lives of people like me every day, so to see it turned on them for once while being told directly that it's because of the suffering they cause on people like me is something I relish unabashedly and wholeheartedly.
This is justice without the need to arrest. This is how community policing is supposed to work. No one gets hurt but the people who do wish to hurt others have their day utterly ruined.
4chan, 8chan, we all knew what was gonna happen hehe

They say they're migrating to BitMitigate, which has been known to shield Neonazi sites like the Daily Stormer.
But as of rn, I can't load BitMitigate's own site, which tells me the DDoS'ers have already adjusted their tactics.
