October Membership Meeting and Community Meeting - Lessons from History: Fascism & Resistance

October 26, 2017

In the United States and internationally fascism is on the rise and with it growing anti-fascist opposition. The panel will discuss historic examples of fascism and the lessons from organized resistance to it as well as current examples and implications for today's resistance.

The discussion will include questions of how we understand and demand distinctions between the unlawful actions of fascists with a dangerous agenda of profound violence and state backing versus the defensive actions of anti-fascists, how can we draw a meaningful distinction between protecting free speech and speech used with the intent to mobilize racist, xenophobic and trans/homophobic violence, and how are we preparing to defend those who confront hate against deadly violence and repression?
