On 'This Week in Fascism,' we look at how a small group of far-Right trolls in #Boston, deeply connected to the Proud Boys + neo-Nazis, have managed to win the affections of Fox News + free publicity from the Center, by rebranding as #StraightPrideParade. https://itsgoingdown.org/this-week-in-fascism-13/
Two Portland protesters who doused cops with glitter and lubricant get sentenced to five days in jail. The judge said “you don’t have the appropriate amount of respect" for the police. Lack of respect for cops shouldn't be considered in sentencing. https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2019/06/2-portland-protesters-who-doused-cops-with-buckets-of-glitter-mixed-with-lubricant-get-5-days-in-jail.html
free speech, antifa
"To truly defend free speech on the whole we must sometimes deny it to its murderous enemies. To defend the ideal of a richly interconnected world where information flows freely takes more than speech, it requires action against those brutally organizing against it."

Hey guys, super shitty news. You may remember me talking about the Birmingham Free Store, an awesome radical #queer space that provides #MutualAid in my hometown by collecting and giving away various things donated by folks in Bham
The landlord for the building has been working on the roof lately, and didn't properly secure the tarp before rain came last night. The store is now flooded, with much of what was inside - including the entire library section - destroyed beyond repair
They really need help right now, however you can. For cash donations, their patreon and venmo are both @bhamfreestore, and if you want to mail books or anything else their address is 3114 27th St N, Birmingham, AL 35207
Please boost this, and copy to other media if you'd like. This is an incredible space and it deserves our help!

Teen Vogue is the best of modern journalism and that sentence had stopped sounding weird to me.
These actions are part of a long history of repression by the Cuban State against both anarchists and the queer and trans community of Cuba. http://blackrosefed.org/cuba-demonization-of-anarchists/
Today is John Brown's birthday. Fighting against a democratic republic in which slavery was legal, he understood the anarchist critique of democracy way ahead of his time.
Against all white supremacist institutions, however "popular" or "representative"!
Anarchist, physicist, transhumanist. Really into exploring the roots of things and expanding degrees of freedom. “Radically uncool.”
