Demonstration für eine freie Gesellschaft ohne Knäste, Staat und Patriarchat – 7. März Chemnitz http://dlvr.it/RQ8dY1
We just published a speech held by Sascha at a FfF demonstration in Magdeburg last year on our blog: https://blog.politfoo.org/speech-fff-sascha-2019/
Something I learnt b in therapy, that might help others.
Make active goals.
This means to not set goals on states, but on actions.
Instead of "I finish this thing" make your goal "I work on this thing today"
Reason is, you can't really control the state, as a lot can come up.
But you can control more that you work on something. And any amount of work would suffice to reach that goal. So even if you work in it for just an hour, it might not be finished, but you worked on it
When you make statements like "the police beat up non-violent activists in The Hague today"
Instead of "the police beat up activists in The Hague today"
The message you're sending is that if the activists had met any definition of the word 'violent', this would have been okay.
So you can't do this and simultaneously try to build broad movements.
You are sending a message where your solidarity ends and that if we could be considered 'violent', we are not safe in your 'broad movement'.
@queeranarchism @queeranarchism I really feel this. I often remind myself these martyr stories only serve to continue the individualistic hero worship narrative that im trying to fight. behind every big fancy leader is a legion of feminized undervalued labor keeping them fed, warm, and clean. the art of maintenance as written on by Mierle L Ukeles is relevant. but the self deprecation is also there. the idea that if I don't go down in the history books im not actually doing anything worth the time... it's an all or nothing idea that isn't accurate. at the end of the day building communities of care takes time and boring committee work. im an anxious mess so it's probably better for me to be behind the scenes anyway. plus nobody needs another white hero trying to save the world
sexual violence, rape, prisons (1/2)
imo, conversations on rapists & prison abolition should, consist of 4 elements:
1. Very few rapists go to prison and the punishment system shows itself every day to be spectacularly incapable of stopping rape. It just isn’t working.
2. In the rare cases when rapists do go to prison, all this does is expose them to a lot of people (the other prisoners) who have less rights and can’t leave. We only consider this safety if we don’t think prisoners as people.
Thanks to all the people who were with us on the street and didn't let the Nazis march through Magdeburg unopposed.
We'll share information on the event with Höcke and Kalbitz in the halber85 during the next days.
Wir danken den vielen Menschen, die gestern mit uns auf der Straße waren und die Nazis nicht unwidersprochen durch Magdeburg ziehen ließen!
Infos zu der Veranstaltung in der halber85 nächste Woche mit Höcke und Kalbitz folgen dann im Laufe der nächsten Tage.
