The Comey Firing, an Escalation Toward Fascism - Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime
Andy Zee, Refuse Fascism co-initiator and Revolution Books, NYC spokesperson, will join us to talk about Trump and Pence Must Go!
Refuse Fascism recently wrote: "We are at a pivotal moment. The sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey has shocked the country and the world. Editorials in major papers and magazines, commentators on TV, and prominent political figures are calling this a constitutional crisis. . . This is, as Refuse Fascism wrote, 'an ominous and dangerous escalation of the Trump/Pence Regimes moves to consolidate fascism.'
"The question we pose to you, to ourselves as an organization whose purpose is to lead people to Refuse Fascism in the name of humanity, is this: will this be a pivotal moment in which we do act with determination to do all we can to move people – who are right now alarmed and outraged – to take to the streets to demand that this regime be driven from power?"
We Will Not Be Silenced
The Academic Repression of Israel's Critics
Maryam S. Griffin, Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Davis, is the co-editor of a new book from AK Press, We Will Not Be Silenced, The Academic Repression of Israel's Critics.
As criticism mounts over Israel's violation of Palestinian human rights and international law, campaigns to silence and repress those who speak out against Israeli apartheid and US complicity have grown alarmingly. Scholars have been denied jobs, refused tenure and promotion, rejected for funding, and expelled from institutions, while student organizations have faced harassment and sanctions. We Will Not Be Silenced offers thirteen powerful, firsthand testimonials from scholars and students whose struggle to defend their academic freedom and free speech has garnered widespread public and international attention.
