<table><tr><td>Arch City ARA is pleased to announce that we will be holding the Anti-Racist Action Network's 18th annual conference this year in our hometown of Columbus, OH during October 12th-15th.

This year's conference is especially important to us because it marks a return to the city where the first official ARA conference took place in 1994, as well as falling on the weekend of the 7th anniversary of the Toledo Riots, a historic victory for antifascists against the National Socialist Movement on October 15, 2005

The conference will include ARA's annual plenary, caucuses, and discussion on current issues facing antifascists. All said events will be held privately. Any non-network vouched chapters or individuals who want to be involved please contact Arch City ahead of time at to fill out registrations and get vouched in.

1. We go where they go:Whenever fascists are organizing or active in public, we're there. We don't believe in ignoring them or staying away from them. Never let the nazis have the street!
2. We don't rely on the cops or courts to do our work for us: This doesn't mean we never go to court. But we must rely on ourselves to protect ourselves and stop the fascists.
3. Non-sectarian defense of other anti-fascists. In ARA, we have a lot of different groups and individuals. We don't agree about everything and we have a right to differ openly. But in this movement an attack on one is an attack on us all. We stand behind each other.
4. We support abortion rights and reproductive freedom. ARA intends to do the hard work necessary to build a broad, strong movement against racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, discrimination against the disabled, the oldest, the youngest, and the most oppressed people. We want a classless, free society. We intend to win!


Eh, ARA is almost entirely @ from what I've heard, and it's not like there aren't plenty of other general interest stories on here.

You're new here, aren't you?

i dunno, the Chicago 2011 conference had a goodly number of troglodyte M-Ls speaking

We pretty much all (A)s here in Chicago actually. Shut your troll as up and support the Tinley park 5.. and also..suck a pooooop

if you're talking about bernadine dohrn, not only are you assuming that her politics simply ceased developing 50 years go, but you clearly didn't go to the conference because all she talked about was abolishing work.

not very Leninist.

Dohrn, the one who supported Obama? a funny way of abolishing work.. well, teflon characters can be everything to everyone i guess.

Who told you she supported Obama? Bill O'Reilly?

Even if that is true, supporting Obama isn't Leninist either

That boy from Four Star was pretty cute, even if he was a secret Leninist. His friend, not so much.

But, more importantly, what would he do with $55k? wada tool....

He's a nice guy, but yea that article was so fucking dumb. Smh...

Thought it was called Five Star?

It would be good if at this conference you could talk about golden dawn,the greek neo Nazi group that is setting up shop in queens nyc. Where are all the NYC anti-fa?

The dude next to the four star boy was the sexy boy toy..duh. and NYC antifa are organizing around golden dawn

so..they're out there
