Mourn the Dead and Fight Like Hell for the Living!*

The devastating fire at Grenfell Tower led not only to a collective feeling of grief
throughout the UK but also to anger. Ordinary people stepped in to help those in
need, long before the government or council offered any meaningful assistance. The
occupation at Kensington Town Hall and marches and protests throughout the
country expressed people's outrage, fueled by decades of neglect and mistreatment
by those with power.
The same capitalist system, with its endless pursuit of profit and its casual disregard for the lives of working class
people, continues to take its toll across the UK. People die within days of having their disability benefits stripped
away, are killed by illness or injury at work, fall victim to the cuts made to the NHS, are kicked out onto the streets
by landlords, or driven to suicide by poverty and isolation. This shouldn't just make us sad, it should make us angry.
These aren't natural disasters, but events caused by people who have the power and wealth to make decisions with
horrendous consequences for the rest of us.
The murder of an anti-racist and anti-fascist protester at Charlottesville in the US caused equal outrage, both at the
white supremacists and at Trump. The racist and fascist response to economic and social problems is a real danger
and is being challenged by grass roots movements around the country.
We call this paper Resistance for a reason. There are plenty of people across the country already resisting (and
winning). Acts of resistance can always use our support, but we need to go beyond support to really make an
impact. We need to follow the examples of those fighting back, learn from them, and look for our own ways to fight
for a better life. The opportunities are everywhere: in our communities and workplaces, in the streets, in the forests.

After all, what better time is there to fight than now? The political esteblishment is in tatters. Our leaders are still....
