Benefiet voor J20 arrestanten + docu ANTIFA

Monday January 22nd 2018, None are free until we’re all free. Benefiet voor J20 arrestanten + docu ANTIFA. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Film: 9:30pm

Op 20 januari 2017 werd president Trump in Washington ingehuldigd, duizenden mensen gingen de straat op om de feestelijkheden te verstoren. Een Black Block van 600 mensen braken door politie kordons heen en verstoorden de feestelijkheden met directe acties. Nu een jaar later zijn de rechtszaken begonnen tegen de 200 arrestanten van die dag, in totaal word er 600 jaar gevangenisstraf geëist. Omdat wij altijd solidair zijn met mensen in strijd organiseren wij dit bescheiden benefiet om zo een kleine bijdrage te leveren aan de financiële kosten die dit monster proces met zich mee brengt. Komt allen!! Doneer gul!!!

None are free until we’re all free. Defend J20 resistance.

De mensen van Global Uprisings hebben speciaal voor de gelegenheid op 20 januari 2018 hun nieuwe documentaire ANTIFA gelanceerd en deze vertonen we dan ook.

Over de docu : ANTIFA
Since the election of Donald Trump, acts of racist violence have proliferated across the United States. Racists and misogynists feel emboldened to express and act on their views. White nationalist groups and resurgent traditional white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan have used Trumps victory to gain new recruits. All that stands in their way are the groups of anarchists and anti-state communists who have taken it upon themselves to prevent fascism from becoming a powerful political force in the United States. This film tells the story of what “Antifa” is and why people are using these tactics to confront racism and fascism in the US today.
Who are the anti-fascists? What motivates them to risk their lives to fight the far right? What is the history of militant anti-fascism and why is it relevant again today? How is anti-fascism connected to a larger political vision that can stop the rise of fascism and offer us visions of a future worth fighting for? Through interviews with anti-fascist organizers, historians, and political theorists in the US and Germany, we explore the broader meaning of this political moment while taking the viewer to the scene of street battles from Washington to Berkeley and Charlottesville.

Dit word georganiseerd door enkele anarchisten i.s.m. de Vrije Bond
