The event below will be hosted by our friends at the High Peaks DSA. Last
week's storming of the capitol (once again) reminded us that dismantling
all forms of fascism - under Trump or under Biden - is imperative in the
fight against white supremacy. I'm super excited about this event and hope
to see you there!

The events of January 6th made the threat of a growing far right painfully
clear. Compared with responses to last summer’s historic Black Lives Matter
protests, they also exposed the abject racism of US policing and the
sympathy of many officers for white supremacy. Some will take comfort in
the humiliation of Trump and the ascension to power of the Biden
administration. But will he and his establishment “grown-ups” even try to
sweep up the mess that bullhorn racism and forty years of carceral
neoliberalism have created?
Tempest, along with many others on the left, answer with an emphatic “no”.
No one is coming to save us but us! This public forum brings together
activists from the US and beyond to strategize how we can best fight an
incipient fascism. Together we will interrogate the forces that brought
about this moment as well as the coalition, tactics, and organizing forms
we need—not only to defeat the right and demoralize their followers, but to
challenge the decrepit racial capitalism that bred Trump in the first place.
