Terrorism and Trump: New Challenges for Social Justice Organizations

"The wake-up call is right there in the front page headline of the Dec. 11 New York Times: 'Poll Has Trump Gaining Ground on Terror Fear.' [ . . . ]

Understand that the fight against racism cannot be won just by struggling around domestic issues. Similarly, international peace cannot be won without a struggle against racism in the U.S. U.S. wars are largely rationalized by racism—the dehumanization and demonizing of people into enemies on the basis of their color or culture to the point of justifying their mass murder and the violent crushing of their economies, homes, public health and schools. The struggle against racism and for peace are potently linked and this needs to be reflected in our strategies and organizing . . ."

No violence. No exceptions. No exceptionalism.

As the days that unfold before us mimic a time over a decade ago when the devastating War on Terror began with US occupation of Afghanistan, we mourn because it is makes us human. For those in Raqqa. For those in Tunis. For those in Yola and Kano, in Ankara, in Beirut, in Baghdad, in Zabul, in Paris, and beyond. But our grief cannot be exceptional. The lives of those living under systemic and perpetual invasion, war and occupation are not disposable and must be mourned and fought for.

Black Lives Matter on Statue

For The Long Struggle Ahead...

One month since Charleston massacre; One year since Eric Garner’s murder

  In the summer of 2014, we witnessed the spread of a beautiful movement against increased militarism and white supremacy. Inspired by the determination of people in Ferguson, MO to defend their community, their dignity, and their lives, countless thousands across the US seized that moment to take action. Swelling in the streets of their cities and towns, spontaneously blocking freeways and intersections in open rebellion, people collectively transformed their grief and rage into the kind of power that momentarily disrupts a status quo that steals the life of a Black person every 28 hours in the US. Now we are faced with the question of how to sustain and grow that power.
