Who we are:
It’s Going Down is a digital community center for anarchist, anti-fascist, autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements. Our mission is to provide a resilient platform to publicize and promote revolutionary theory and action.
What we do:
- We publish original content alongside anonymous submissions as well as repost articles from websites which share our perspectives.
- We host a weekly radio show every Friday at 12 PM (PST) on KPFA, 94.1FM across Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco, 88.1 in Fresno, and 97.5 in Santa Cruz.
- We create several podcast series
- We maintain active Twitter, Instagram and Facebook social media accounts.
- We offer this website through Tor Hidden Services @ http://IGDNEWSdjfmg7kxu.onion (Please download and use Tor Browser).
We are anarchists:
We act in the spirit of autonomy, mutual-aid, and solidarity. We have no allegiance to representational politics. To read more about anarchist ideas, check out our library.
We are non-sectarian:
Although we come out of the anarchist movement, we seek to build relationships and bridges with all comrades from a wide range of autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements across the world – regardless of label or tendency.
What we do not do:
As a news and media platform, It’s Going Down does not plan or organize protests or demonstrations. However, we do signal boost what people are already organizing in their locality.
We do not advocate or promote violence or non-violence. Movements for liberation decide for themselves on what the best strategy is to get and stay free. We respect local organizers efforts and their understanding of the situations they are faced with.

In the Winter/Spring of 2016, IGD came together to publish a magazine documenting the first 6 months of the website and collected some of the most powerful articles that we published and re-published. Below are links to the PDF, both in color and in black and white, as well as the video which promoted the crowdfunding campaign which helped give life to the project. We encourage people to print out copies and share. Check out our promotional video that was made thanks to the help of our friends at the Final Straw and Sub.Media!
The second issue of the magazine was published in the spring of 2017.
