In Defense of Black Bloc at NYC Protests

via AMW

On the Breonna Taylor March

While the language of “No Bad Protesters” and “No Peace police” is common amongst abolitionists, anti-fascists, and anarchists, many within the broader Black Lives Matter movement were shocked to see the Black Bloc. One protester accused the Black Bloc of being outside agitators and inciting violence. Another questioned why the Black Bloc insisted on thoroughly disguising their identity.

Black Rose Anarchist Federation NYC Local Statement on the Current Revolt

Black Rose Anarchist Federation NYC Local Statement on the Current Revolt

From Love and Rage media dot org

by Black Rose/Rosa Negra NYC Local

The explosive revolt following the murders of George Floyd, Raynard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Loreal Tsingine and Chantel Moore laid bare the collective anger that’s been simmering just below the surface in a U.S. society  founded on white supremacy and a capitalist system designed to enrich a very few haves at the expense of everyone else. The uprising was a revolt of the Black and Brown people and the have-nots sickened by seeing the video of a Black man being slowly lynched, and tired of living day-to-day with a dim future of precarious jobs, health and housing, unstable food, debt, a degrading climate, and a pandemic-induced depression. The system has failed the have-nots. It’s time to uproot it and replace it with a cooperative and democratic society.

: interviews with anarchists from Minneapolis and NYC

On 25 May George Floyd was murdered by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This immediately resulted in protests on the streets in half a dozen cities in the United States.

By the end of that week, every city in the United States – and many around the world – saw vocal, determined, well-attended demonstrations to make it plain that black youth in particular had had enough.

The Turnstile Revolution: #FTP3 in NYC

I.

The global wave of revolutionary uprisings kicked off last year has finally reached the shores of the USA. This Friday, the third #FTP protest took the streets and trains of New York City, the latest demonstration in an emerging movement fighting to win four demands: 1. Free fare on the NYC transit system, 2. No cops on the trains or in the stations, 3. The end of police harassment of street vendors and performers, and 4. Full accessibility for all.

We will be showing a collage of video documentaries and historical stock footage related to Audre Lorde and Emma Goldman (30-45 minutes) and followed by a discussion relating to the intersecting philosophical themes that they both illustrated in their writings that relate to the anarchistic genealogy of the refusal and rejection of state, capital(ism), and the multitude of hierarchies (institutional & interpersonal) that dominate our lives.

January 11th: NYC Anarchist Assembly

We are witnessing a period of incredible social upheaval around the world. The US is not exempt from the political tension and the potential for conflict and substantial change seems more real than ever. In NYC, we also have an extremely tense political situation, with the expansion of the jail system, the ever spreading gentrification, and the largest and most brutal police forces in the country.

With this in mind we are calling for a recurring NYC anarchist assembly to build, strategize and create a formidable anarchist movement in the city that can grapple with the political problems in NY and internationally.
