Who we are:
It’s Going Down is a digital community center for anarchist, anti-fascist, autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements across so-called North America. 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 and 94.3 Monterrey.
- We produce a podcast featuring a wide variety of guests.
- We publish a variety of columns.
- We maintain active Twitter, Instagram and Mastodon social media accounts.
- We offer this website through Tor Hidden Services @ http://IGDNEWSy3xy4bzfy6odv7zvssekg4k6u62at6kqq6xwxc7avevhiscyd.onion (Please download and use Tor Browser).
We are anarchists:
The political State exists to uphold a class divided and settler-colonial society. We believe that a better world can be created in its place, organized from the ground up, where power is spread out horizontally, with human labor going towards human needs, not profit. We act in the spirit of autonomy, mutual-aid, and direct action. We have no allegiance to representational, Statist 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 a media platform to give voice to a wide range of autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements and struggles – 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.
