A View From the Rear: A Reportback From the Back of the Black Bloc

For various personal reasons I was unwilling to risk arrest at the J20 inaugural festivities, but I couldn't stand to miss the action altogether. I compromised by trailing in the wake of the black bloc march, far enough behind to be safe, but close enough to make some pertinent observations.

Video: 2016 in activism-chaos, catastrophe, and resistance

Video highlights of the past year in progressive activism. Resistance to Donald Trump, to the Dakota Access Pipeline, and to police murder are the three main themes of the past year. Now we must prepare for the battle to come on the 20th of January, and the war against racism and white supremacy that will follow.

Youtube prohibits authors of poltical videos from selling ads-and some activists actually object

On the 3ed of September, an image appeared on twitter from an account simply labelled as "anonymous" with a Guy Fawlkes mask along with charges that Youtube is censoring activist video not be taking it down but rather by forbidding posters from selling additional ads ("revenue sharing") on them. Youtube does not consider social activist video "ad-safe," just as some activists do not consider anticapitalist video made for the purpose of selling corporations' ads "hypocrisy safe." For Youtube to offer to air the videos, just not to offer to permit posters to sell corporate ads on them is not censorship of anything but the ads themselves. The advertisers are unlikely to object to that "censorship."

Since when is refusing to sell ads on content censorship?

Mayday reportback from DC and around the world

On Mayday (May 1), there were two marches in DC. One was the annual march from Malcolm X Park to the White House, which included demands that ICE be expelled from DC, that the TPP trade deal never be ratifed, and that area stores respect the Driscolls Berries boycott. The other march began at Marbury Plaza where Alonzo Smith was murdered by "special police" in Anacostia and ended at the 7D police station.
