Hi All! 

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! 

In solidarity,

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.
