#FridaysForFuture: Aufruf zum antikapitalistischen Finger am 21. Juni in #Aachen – Enough 14 D
https://enough-is-enough14.org/2019/05/30/fridaysforfuture-aufruf-zum-antikapitalistischen-finger-am-21-juni-in-aachen/ // “Eingereichter Beitrag. Bild oben: @FutureFridaysAC

Wir denken, dass dieser Schwerpunkt notwendig ist, da das Wirtschaftssystem Kapitalismus seine zerstörerische Kraft immer mehr zeigt! Durch die Erkenntnisse der Wissenschaft ist es nicht mehr zuwiderlegen, dass der Klimawandel, Umweltzerstörung und Artensterben das Resultat der profitorientierten Wirtschaft ist! Zwar hat der Fortschritt im Kapitalismus mehr Menschen größeren Wohlstand ermöglicht, jedoch nur für eine Minderheit, auf Kosten unserer natürlichen Ressourcen, des Ökosystems und der Mehrheit der Bevölkerung! Beispielsweise bräuchten wir die Ressourcen von 3 Planeten, wenn auf der ganzen Welt ein Lebensstandard wie in Europa herrschen würde. Das bedeutet, dass für die meisten Menschen ein Konsum nach heutigem, westlichem Maßstab niemals möglich sein kann.

Eine nachhaltige, globale Versorgung und der Kapitalismus sind also nicht vereinbar!

Seit 200 Jahren, seit dem Aufkommen des Industriekapitalismus, wird unser Planet gnadenlos ausgebeutet! Jedes Jahr liegt der „Welterschöpfungstag“ früher, der Tag, an dem wir alle Ressourcen verbraucht haben, die sich in einem Jahr regenerieren. Das hat nun zur Folge, dass sich tagtäglich bemerkbar macht, dass der Klimawandel im vollen Gange ist! Auch wenn die Auswirkungen in vielen westlichen Ländern noch nicht so stark sind, sind sie im globalen Süden umso verheerender! Das ist allen wissenschaftlichen Ergebnissen nach Fakt! Außerdem ist Fakt, dass unserer Gesellschaft nicht mehr viel Zeit bleibt, um die schlimmsten Effekte des Klimawandels abzuwenden! Im Kapitalismus arbeitet die Wirtschaft immer nach dem Konkurrenzprinzip! In der Zeit, die uns noch bleibt, ist aber eine solidarische, zielorientierte Zusammenarbeit auf allen gesellschaftlichen Ebenen erforderlich! Ziel muss sein, die industrielle Überproduktion zu beenden und ein gleichberechtigtes, bedürfnisorientiertes System aufzubauen!

June 1, Chemnitz – Für eine Zukunft ohne Nazis – Tddz verhindern! #noTddZ
+++ Für weitere Informationen – stay tuned +++
[https://www.facebook.com/events/283242165959736/]
TddZ am 01. Juni 2019 in Chemnitz verhindern!

Auf allen Ebenen mit allen Mitteln!

Beim „Tag der deutschen Zukunft“ handelt es sich derzeit um einen der größten faschistischen Aufmärsche in der BRD, welcher jedes Jahr in einer anderen Stadt stattfindet. Erstmals fand der sog. TddZ 2009 in Pinneberg statt – organisiert von freien Kameradschaften. Den Höhepunkt erreichte der TddZ 2016 in Dortmund mit gut 1000 Teilnehmenden. Später wurde er von dem Umfeld der faschistischen Kleinstpartei Die Rechte getragen, welche aus der militant agierenden Kameradschaft „Nationaler Widerstand Dortmund“ (NWDO) hervorging.

Luke O’Brien // The white supremacist accused of murdering 51 people in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March was also on Twitter, where he spread Islamophobia, white supremacist propaganda and articles about terrorist attacks. He tweeted pictures of his weapons and posted links to a disturbing manifesto he wrote, apparently in anticipation of the deadly rampage. Only after he was charged in a mass murder did Twitter act.

The shooter may have carried out the genocidal end goal of white supremacy, but there are thousands of white supremacists on Twitter with the same mindset, most of them anonymous and working in concert. In a 2018 study, extremism expert J.M. Berger offered an “extremely conservative” estimate that at least 100,000 alt-right users are on Twitter. The repercussions for these bad actors are practically nonexistent.

“We just didn’t invest enough,” Twitter co-founder Ev Williams, who also became a billionaire by monetizing outrage online, told CNN Business this week. “We underestimated the level of bad actors that we would see and the level of impact they would have.”

Take the anonymous alt-right troll called “Spicci,” who leads a harassment gang on Twitter called The Shed and has appeared on white nationalist podcasts to wish death on journalists. For years, Twitter has allowed him to run multiple fake accounts and use the service to menace people and tweet racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic content. Although Spicci has been reported countless times, Twitter typically does nothing. When the company does suspend him, he returns within minutes and continues harassing people. But the process of evaluating his “conduct” starts anew.

Ishaan Tharoor // On May 9, Russian President Vladimir Putin will play host to one of Moscow’s largest ever military parades to mark the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany. More than 16,000 troops will participate, as well 140 aircraft and 190 armored vehicles, including the debut of Russia’s brand new next-generation tank.

It’s a grand moment, but few of the world’s major leaders will be in attendance. The heads of state of India and China will look on, but not many among their Western counterparts. That is a reflection of the tense geopolitical present, with Putin’s relations with the West having turned frosty after a year of Russian meddling in Ukraine. When Russia’s T-14 Armata tank broke down at a parade rehearsal on Thursday, the snickering could be heard across Western media.

The Ministry of Defence has confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it is genuine.The 20-box ‘XRW chart’ lists a range of behaviours linked to extreme right-wing radicalisation, which officers should “look out for” in soldiers.Among them are: “Describe themselves as ‘Patriots’… Looks at opponents as ‘Traitors’… Add ‘istan’ to British place names… Use the term ‘Islamofascism’… Make generalisations about Muslims and Jews… Refers to Political Correctness as some left wing or communist plot… Make inaccurate generalisations about ‘the Left’ or Government… Talk of an impending racial conflict or ‘Race War’… Involve colleagues in closed social media groups.”” – <https://www.buzzfeed.com/markdistefano/the-british-armys-guide-for-spotting-extreme-right-wing?fbclid=IwAR0rZvEbwxlGTfhY9H79GL4kBLS0gA9P13HyKkclUkDA1nxuM1U88Ettf14>

I was really taken by their cause and they were protesting to go to public college, like most other students with DACA can do in other states. And faith leaders came forward, teachers came forward, other members of the community stood up and I decided to stand up with them and when you do that in Georgia you can get arrested. So I spent 12 righteous hours in the clink. But I was glad to do it. I’ve been consistently told to weaponize your privilege and be aware of the fact that you can’t divorce the idea of having a television show from doing a television show so this was a situation where these kids needed a voice, a voice that they don’t have, and I had an opportunity to do it… and to get publicity for the show.”” – <https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-last-laugh-podcast-jordan-klepper-on-weaponizing-his-white-privilege-into-activist-comedy?via=newsletter&source=DDAfternoonhttps://www.thedailybeast.com/the-last-laugh-podcast-jordan-klepper-on-weaponizing-his-white-privilege-into-activist-comedy?via=newsletter&source=DDAfternoon>

“— Published on the 17th of May 2019.
Gang rapes, harassment, inhumane treatment, insults: LGTBI people1 are victims of physical and verbal abuse. Imprisonment exposes them to more risks.
The Association for the Prevention of Torture (APT) has published a practical guide for the protection of LGTBI people who are deprived of their freedom.
Designed to inform, raise awareness and protect, the guide is intended especially for public authorities such as law enforcement agencies and prison administrations. It outlines degrading treatments, reports cases of torture and exposes the different forms of discrimination inflicted on LGBTI people.

“If you’ve been reading this blog for long enough, you’re well aware of the dangers inherent in anti-fascist work.  One way antifa try to make it a bit safer is to keep the public dissemination of details of actions to a bare minimum.  On one hand, that’s good “opsec,” but when you’re doing something like trying to run a defence fund for anti-fascists, that can create some difficulties when you need to confirm the details of a particular request or proposal for support.
One way we’ve dealt with this tension is relying on well-established, reputable antifa crews that we’ve built a relationship over the years to be our “eyes & ears” and verify or vouch for the circumstances of anti-fascists in emergency situations that we’re told about.  Case in point: a request to help with the legal defence of an antifa in a specific region, facing charges after confronting a well-known area nazi.  Because charges are pending + there is a real threat of retribution, we weren’t provided many more details beyond that.  What we did have, though, was the word of two highly-regarded antifa crews in the region who we were able to vouch for the veracity of the request.  In the absence of the kind of details we’d normally require before considering a request for help, the word of these two crews was enough for us and we were able to deliver funds to the antifa in trouble.” – <https://intlantifadefence.wordpress.com/2019/05/30/light-on-details/>
