This summer, It’s Going Down turned 7 years old. A lot has changed since 2015 when this project began, and after four years of seemingly non-stop activity under Trump, things are once again heating up on the streets. We’re proud of the work that we’ve put in over the past 7 years and are excited about the growing amount of anarchist and autonomous anti-capitalist, anti-colonial, and anti-fascist projects happening both on the ground and in the media space. Anarchist ideas are growing in popularity – our wager that a large swath of the population, especially young people, who reject both the settler-fascism of the GOP and the neoliberalism of the Democrats, is open to a revolutionary alternative – is proving correct.
With the rolling back of Roe v Wade and a wave of attacks on LGBTQ people, migrants, unions and the working population in general, a new generation is coming up against the brutality of the State, the threat of the far-Right, the failures of the official Left, and the increasing immiseration of everyday life under capitalism as the ecological crisis continues to push us all towards the edge of collapse.
Across so-called North America, we’re seeing a new generation of antifascists take the streets against assaults on the LGBTQ community, a wave of militant action against attacks on reproductive autonomy, growing fights against development that threatens green space and forests from Berkeley to Atlanta, and evolving struggles by tenants against evictions and sweeps against a backdrop of rapid inflation and an exploding housing crisis. But to continue to cover all of these evolving autonomous struggles, we need your help and support.
We’ve recently come into an emergency situation and need to raise $2,000. Please stand behind us and help us continue into the future. You can sign up to donate monthly or give us a one time donation. We know that with your help and support we’ll meet our goal and we look forward to the work ahead of continuing to put out new content, columns, original writings, roundups, radio shows and podcasts. We also have some big projects on the horizon and with your help, we’ll get there together.
