Trump’s Wall Is a Fascist Monstrosity & Must NOT Go Up... But the “Border Security” of the Democrats Is ALSO a Machinery of Heartless Persecution, Demonization, and Deportation - discussion 7pm Thurs. 1-17-19

The crisis around the wall and the government shutdown has heightened. Trump doubled down with his January 8 Oval Office address and his threats to use executive power to build the wall without Congressional approval. This signifies another big step in the fascist remolding this regime is undertaking.

At the same time, the Democrats have continued their tack of essentially accepting the basic terms of Trump. For all their stern faces and charges of Trumpian irresponsibility, they, like Trump, cover over the fundamental guilt of the U.S. imperialist system for driving people from their home countries and the essentially illegitimate character of U.S. borders in the first place. They, like Trump, frame the argument as one of how to repress and control these desperate immigrants rather than what must be done to the system that has created this.

I Am Not Your Negro - film showing & discussion 7pm 1-11-19

Toward the end of his life, James Baldwin, novelist, essayist and poet, wrote notes for a book he had wanted to write about his three assassinated friends, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King. Peck's film uses these notes to jump through time, in a blazing examination of the history of race in America.

 "I Am Not Your Negro, an Oscar-nominated documentary by Raoul Peck, is a must see. If you think you know the reality of the brutal depth and horror of white supremacy in America, if you think you've seen it all and even if you have, you've not seen it delivered like this."
