Charlottesville Fundraiser: “Trouble” Screening
On August 12 in Charlottesville, a Nazi murdered anti-fascist protester Heather Heyer. Many IWW and GDC members from across the country, as well as MACC members from New York City, were present when the attack occurred. The NYC GDC and MACC stand in solidarity with all those who oppose the growing wave of fascism around the world. Cowardly attacks will only strengthen our resolve to fight back and defend ourselves. An injury to one is an injury to all!
To support all those injured by fascist violence in Charlottesville, we are holding a fundraiser and screening of the latest episode of “Trouble” by SubMedia at Rebecca’s. “Trouble” is a new monthly documentary series that broadcasts first-hand accounts of struggles for community self-defense. Previous episodes have explored topics like water protectors fighting the construction of the DAPL pipeline at Standing Rock, anti-fascist organizing, solidarity efforts for refugees and resistance to state repression. SubMedia has encouraged groups to host screenings of the show to bring communities together and provoke discussion of tactics, struggles and movement dynamics.
The best defense against fascism is a strong and supportive community, based on principles of mutual aid, solidarity and self-defense. Heather Heyer will live in our hearts forever!
If you are unable to attend, please consider donating to the solidarity fund and sharing this appeal widely: http://tinyurl.com/defendcville1.
