Solecast #30 is an in-depth discussion with one of the editors of It’s Going Down.

It’s Going Down is an anarchist news and counter information website and has become a hub for radical activity & analysis in North America.

From their website, “We are a network of friends and comrades across so-called North America that seeks to provide news and analysis of when it goes down: riots, strikes, sabotage, occupations, expropriations, rebellion, revolt, insurrection, whether together or alone – we support liberatory revolt.

Topics Discussed:

  • Discussing their approach to spreading radical ideas, and allowing for a platform for people from various radical currents to come together
  • Forming a radical pole against liberalism and the far right
  • What a Trump administration means and what some possible points of interventions are over the next four years
  • The need to reach out to working class folks in rural areas and getting out of the “radical” bubble
  • A discussion of some of the most inspiring actions happening in the US right now from pipeline resistance, the prison strike, solidarity networks, fast food workers & tenants organizing, and the rise in anti-fascist organizing
  • Placing the rise of white nationalism in the states & worldwide in historic context
  • The challenge of dealing with liberals who wish to contain the struggle
  • Why a dual approach pursuing electoral politics and street resistance will not work
  • The growing conversation happening in the states now, people dropping their pretensions and moving forward
  • How to contribute to IGD
