Anniversary of John Brown’s execution


Today is the day John Brown was executed for his efforts to arm enslaved Africans and lead an uprising against white slavers.
Remember his final words: “I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood. I had as I now think, vainly flattered myself that without very much bloodshed, it might be done.”

John Brown was right.

Support Warrior Sisters: women’s self defense


Rapists and abusers are soldiers on the front lines of a war against women – and in a war, you don’t win by asking the other side nicely to stop.

Warrior Sisters provides both lethal and non-lethal self-defense training to women in need. Please consider making a donation. Your support will go towards purchasing weapons and training materials as well as other needs (insurance, promotion, etc). This is a great opportunity to aid the struggle against male violence and patriarchal domination.

Together, we can fight back, and together, we can win.

Nat Turner and other rebellions

In order to justify the last four hundred years of inhuman brutality, the dominant power structure has erased all history of resistance and attempted to cast enslaved Africans as stupid, docile, and complicit in their own domination. On the eve of the anniversary of Nat Turner’s rebellion, we must take the time to remind ourselves that thousands of men and women over many generations did indeed rise up and fight back against the genocidal institution of Southern (and Northern) slavery. The struggle continues today.

White folks must become race traitors. We must become intimately, uncomfortably, painfully acquainted with the blood shed in our names, from Columbus on down to White Clay. We must open ourselves up to the hurt and fear and rage of those upon whom this civilization has clamped its jaws. And then we must help them kick its fucking teeth in.
