The role of protest and attempts to shit down the talks far-right wing figures such as Milo Yiannopoulos has been a recent subject controversy. But what are the actual goals of anti-fascists, anarchists and others on the left who advocate giving “no platform”? The following is a transcribed interview with Mark Bray of Black Rose on the Feb. 10, 2017 broadcast of WNYC’s On the Media.
The concept of constant struggle holds strong as definitive measure among a range of anarchists. We may be struggling against our preexisting conditions--or the level at which we are at odds with what we oppose as anarchists, or intentionally confronting or attacking our opposition in a direct drive towards a intensified state of struggle. This isn't intended to present a binary either, as of course there can be a range of ways we may attack our enemies that make sense in our situation.

An in-depth interview with Doug Gilbert, author of “I Saw Fire.” Sole and Doug have a long conversation about anarchist strategies and counter-information. Lots of practical stuff in here about how to get revolutionary projects started in smaller cities and how to meaningfully engage in larger cities. They talk about what it means to “live and fight,” discuss problems with the “left” and have a broader conversation about revolutionary projects.
