Philly Antifa Flyer Against Daniel Reardon and Jeff Thomas in West Philly

from Philly Antifa

Earlier this week, the avenues of West Philadelphia were blanketed with myriad of posters, warning residents of the presence of local neo-Nazi scum Mark Daniel Reardon, and his corny ‘Not a Nazi’ side-kick Jeff Thomas. This past spring, Reardon was driven from his apartment when community members learned that he had posted fliers around University City, looking to recruit for Atomwaffen, a violent neo-Nazi organization. Since then, Reardon has been forced to hide his wretched self away, spending his time re-tweeting Pepe the frog memes and periodically leaving his sad, lonely cave to get food from the Checkers on 43rd and Market.

Thomas resigns himself to attending Trump rallies and infrequently posting stickers and Alt-Right fliers around town. Oh, and getting in Facebook arguments about how he’s “totally not a racist,” despite being at the Unite the Right rally, and working security for known Holocaust denier Augustus Invictus. Pitiful as both Reardon and Thomas are, Charlottesville serves as proof that fascist and white supremacist groups are growing emboldened, and that individuals are becoming more committed to their racist ideologies, and backing them up with violence and terrorism against our communities.

While its easy to spot the bad guys at events, or the dude strolling along the street with a swastika on his arm; what about the Nazis living down your block, or working in your midst? We’re here to remind them that there will be no comfort for them, no community spaces that are accessible, or that feel safe. No individuals will be allowed a platform to exercise racist rhetoric, or recruit for their misguided and genocidal causes.

So keep your eyes open for these scum, skulking around West Philly and beyond, and give us a shout if you should happen across them. Know that while they are undoubtedly grade A tools, take note that we also believe them to be dangerous (as all white supremacists are), so please exercise caution.

Yo Nazi scum! We’re watchin’!

In solidarity, and with fury

USA: Destroy Colonialism Revolutionary Action

from Insurrection News

The US is a country, like many others, that will not, and in many ways cannot, come to terms with its remarkably barbaric inception. The narrative of Columbus’s exploits and the later colonization of the territory is so extraordinarily savage that Americans, imperatively, create a preposterous story around this period. But the victims of white supremacist colonialism know all too well what Columbus represents. Revolutionaries, in solidarity with indigenous struggles, took action all across the country, in a total rejection of the colonial state.

Philly: As some prepare to celebrate Columbus Day, revolutionary anarchists and abolitionists reject all supremacist notions of colonialism. There is no place within radical working class movements for the triumphalism of a so-called “holiday” based on the domination, exploitation, and mass murder of indigenous people. Real solidarity means rejection of a genocidal legacy. Real unity means fighting together. Philly rejects colonialism. Power to indigenous people everywhere!

Philadelphia, USA: Banner Action in Solidarity with #DefendCville

On Sunday in Philly a banner was hung from the Reading Viaduct and pamphlets were thrown into the street in solidarity with the anti-fascists who fought in Charlottesville.

Philadelphia, PA: Six Months On, We Will Still #DefendJ20

from It’s Going Down

Six months ago, on January 20th, the spectacle of a peaceful transition of power was smashed by hundreds of brave souls who descended on the streets of Washington D.C. and numerous other cities in these so-called United States. Their defiant rejection of the newest authoritarian regime set the stage for continued resistance against Trump and all those who keep us in chains.

On that day in D.C. an anti-capitalist / anti-fascist march was violently suppressed by the Metropolitan Police Department in conjunction with the US Parks Police. Chemical weapons were deployed indiscriminately, while storm trooper riot cops attacked demonstrators, bystanders, and supporters with a volley of flashbangs, stinger grenades, and rubber bullets.

After the smoke settled that afternoon, over 230 people were kettled for hours in a cold January rain without access to food, water, or restrooms, and were then hit with a felony rioting charge. Since then, over 200 of the #J20 defendants were re-indicted on 7 or more new felony charges and are now facing over 75 years in prison. The #J20 defendants are working collectively to fight back against a state that seeks to criminalize dissent by locking them in cages for the rest of their lives.

Their bold resistance will not be forgotten.
Their sacrifices will not be in vain.
These trumped up charges will be fought and defeated.

We call on our comrades in this week of solidarity to #DefendJ20!

Solidarity with all #J20 defendants! Solidarity with all those who oppose fascism and capitalism! Solidarity with all those fighting for autonomy and dignity!

Love and rage,
Philly

J20 to G20 We Are Ungovernable

from Facebook

As we put our bodies in the way of the Mariner East 2 Pipeline, we look to the inspiration of those resisting the capitalist order in the face of brutal state violence.

211 people are each facing up to 75 years in prison for disrupting the inauguration of our fascist president and July 20th marks the beginning of a week of solidarity for the J20 defendants. Tens of thousands took to the streets of #Hamburg, #Germany this past week to block the #G20 and the smooth functioning of the global ruling class.

We did a banner drop from our tree sit in the path of the ME2 Pipeline in solidarity with our comrades. From the streets of Hamburg to the streets of DC, the rallying cry of the people is screaming “Shut It Down!”
