Reposted from DefendJ20Resistance.org:

The J20 case has the potential to establish legal precedent for charging hundreds if protesters with felonies: particularly anarchists, the Black Lives Matter movement, and a range of groups targeted by national and local police. Please do what you can to raise awareness before the next trial group, starting April 17th.

The advent of the Trump Administration in the US has witnessed more waves of attacks on civil liberties, more intense police repression, more tax cuts favouring the rich, the beefing up of the military and a range of other onslaughts. Employers have been encouraged to intensify their war path against workers on the job. Whilst an important base of support of the Trump electoral campaign has been demoralised workers in the “rust belt” hard hit by de-industrialisation. Lately Trump has even been whipping up support from ultra right wing forces by his provocative tweets. The union bureaucracy associated with the AFL-CIO-CIA has typically announced its willingness to “work” with the Trump administration.

From It's Going Down

The Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee, or IWOC, is a committee within the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), that is working to offer support for workers already self-organizing from behind prison walls. As we speak, actions in Texas prisons are ongoing, while riots and resistance continues at Holman Prison in Alabama. This May Day, prisoners with the Free Alabama Movement (FAM) are calling for a strike, anarchist and anti-prison groups are organizing demonstrations in solidarity, and IWOC and other groups are building for national actions on September 9th. Wanting to know more about how a small group has managed to sign up hundreds of prisoners and build for large actions, we caught up with IWOC to learn just how it’s going down.

It’s Going Down: How did IWOC form? What was the inspiration for the group?

No matter who is elected, we must never stop rioting. Even if every most promising progressive gets elected or every most disconcerting conservative gets elected, we must set the streets on fire. The argument about voting or not voting is useless. Anarchists have historically focused their efforts on direct action or direct democracy and progressive reforms have only redirected revolutionary potential into institutional squabbles. Let this year be the year that the riots started and never stopped.

Chicago May Day 2015

May Day, or International Workers' Day, is an annual  holiday which occurs on the first of May. Born out of fight for the eight-hour working day in Chicago and the state-sanctioned murder of the Haymarket Martyrs (History of May Day) May Day is celebrated today as a time for all members of the working class to stand united and show the bosses, landlords, and all of the ruling class that we are still not afraid.
