We are deeply saddened by the loss of our comrade in struggle. Our hearts and minds go out to their loved ones. We stand in solidarity with anti-racist activists in Charlottesville today, their families, the IWW and DSA members present, and all those involved in the struggle against the rising tide of fascism worldwide.

A strategy to defend our communities and to challenge Trump begins with us, the exploited workers. Together we hold the solution to Trump and to the bigger problems of capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy. Some sections of the ruling classes may share our desire to get rid of Trump, but only so that they can put another capitalist in the White House and then have us go through this cycle of crisis all over again. While we may end up marching with these people in the streets for the next four years, we know that our allies are those who also work to build the independent power of the exploited classes, not those who want us to pin our hopes on political candidates.
We must push for greater unity of working-class social movements. We need to reach out to others who are doing organizing in our areas and talk to them about working together. We should push for social movement organizations that we are part of – like labor unions, Black Lives Matter chapters, immigrant rights organizations – to organize city-wide summits to plan how to support each other and how to coordinate opposition to Trump. Between now and January 20th, we should organize as much national discussion and coordination between social movements and revolutionary organizations as possible. We should plan for mass protests on Trump’s inauguration day, and we should see these protests as organizing tools to continue building unity and to draw people into the day-to-day organizing in our communities where we will really be building the long-term power that we need to be a threat to the state.

Está em curso um golpe militar na Turquia. Não é certo qual será seu resultado, mas tanques estão nas ruas, soldados tomaram a televisão estatal, aeroportos foram fechados, e tiros de arma de fogo e explosões foram ouvidas em Instanbul e na Turquia. Parece claro que uma substantiva seção militar liderou essa ação contra o governo e está no controle de partes do país. Até o momento há informes de soldados matando manifestantes. Dada a fraqueza histórica do exército turco como um poder político relativo aos períodos em que se realizaram os golpes anteriores, há uma forte chance que o governo irá prevalecer. read full story / add a comment

There is currently a military coup in Turkey. It is not certain what the outcome will be, but tanks are on the streets, soldiers have taken over state television, airports are shut down, and gunfire and explosions have been heard in Istanbul and Turkey. It is clear that a substantial section of the military has taken action against the government and is in control of parts of the country. At this moment there are reports of soldiers killing protesters. Given the historic weakness of the Turkish military as a political power relative to the eras in which it carried out previous coups, there is a strong chance that the government will prevail. • [ελληνικά]

A mezzogiorno del 20 luglio, nella città di confine di Suruç nel Kurdistan turco, una bomba ha lacerato i corpi di comunisti, socialisti ed anarchici che si stavano recando a Kobane per partecipare alla sua ricostruzione. Decine di persone sono rimaste uccise, molti i feriti. [English] read full story / add a comment

At noon, in the border town of Suruç in Turkish Kurdistan, a bomb ripped through the bodies of communists, socialists, and anarchists who were on their way to assist in the rebuilding of Kobane. Tens of people were killed, many more injured. One Black Rose member was present assisting in preparations for a campaign to support the rebuilding of Kobane and Rojava, but was uninjured in the blast.
This demonstrates the attitude of the state and is indicative of a sad reality: Turkey is continuing its murderous policy towards the Kurds and this attack can be seen as a fulfillment of Erdogan’s promise to stop Rojava by any means necessary. In the coming months, Black Rose will continue to broaden the scope in organizing committees and networks in solidarity with Rojava. We hope for your support. read full story / add a comment
