NASTY WOMAN from ..It Is What It Is
“My name is .. and I am a feminist.
And I want to say hello to Independence Avenue in the back, all the way down to 17th Street, and I bring you words from Nina Donovan, a 19-year-old in Middle, Tennessee.
She has given me the privilege of telling you what she has to say:
“I am a nasty woman. I’m as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetos dust. A man whose words are a distract to America. Electoral college-sanctioned, hate-speech contaminating this national anthem. I’m not as nasty as Confederate flags being tattooed across my city.
Maybe the South actually is going to rise again. Maybe for some it never really fell. Blacks are still in shackles and graves, just for being black. Slavery has been reinterpreted as the prison system in front of people who see melanin as animal skin. I am not as nasty as a swastika painted on a pride flag, and I didn’t know devils could be resurrected but I feel Hitler in these streets.

On August 12, a fascist murdered one person and injured dozens more by driving a vehicle into a crowd of anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. Fascists had been calling for violence in advance; they made it very clear that this would happen.
We are calling for solidarity actions to take place around the country in response—to support the bereaved, to encourage those who courageously stood up to fascist murderers, to reach out to our communities about this situation, and to show that we will not stand for this. Here, you can find a list of solidarity demonstrations and a PDF of a flier you can print and distribute to inform others about this situation.
To add your event, email: info[at] itsgoingdown [dot] org and send updates about solidarity demonstrations to us via @crimethinc or firstname.lastname@example.org. Continue reading “World Guide to Charlottesville Solidarity Actions #RollingThunder”
Fighting back against Israel’s incursions has become second nature for residents of the West Bank village.
Ramallah, occupied West Bank – When Israeli military jeeps approached the village of Budrus last month, every resident was notified within minutes.
Through the speakers of the village’s mosque, a warning was issued: Israeli forces had entered the area and were preparing to demolish a house.
Men, women and children rushed towards the site of the impending demolition. The village’s women were the first on the scene. Continue reading “Palestinian women lead resistance in Budrus”
Blackmail.. by threats to leave Nato, to join the Russia/Iran/China axis, to expose the US creation and financing of ISIS.. etc, and Bribery.. by promising to conclude the huge new arms purchases, by perhaps blocking the Russian South Stream gas pipeline, etc.
The Plan is to effectively annexe the north of Syria as a ‘safe zone’ run by his own paid jihadi proxies, the FSA. Russia seems now to reluctantly go along with this, and excludes the SDF and Kurds from all negotiations.
Now the ruling Turks only need to get Trump on board.. so that their 5000 tanks can roll, the Rojava revolution can be destroyed, women can again be slaves, and a new 40 years war with Syria can begin.
