(en) Russia, avtonom: Strategic Notes: Peter Gelderloos on the US Situation

Date Thu, 14 Jan 2021 09:55:18 +0200

American anarchist Peter Gelderloos wrote in his twitter about the possible consequences of yesterday's assault on the Capitol supporters Trump. He also recalled the main priorities for the US anarchist movement. Avtonom.org publishes a translation of these notes. ---- If the Republicans decide to remove Trump, then the Democrats will welcome it. Then the renewed democracy will become very centrist. Fascists will be left without electoral representation and will look for other ways of action. If the Republicans do not dare to do this, then the Democrats will go to court in two weeks. They defiantly distance themselves from the Republicans through progressive politics and a variety of (mostly symbolic) actions. These actions will include reprisals against all "extremists", both left and right. In any case, they will find ways to increase pressure on anti-racist and anti-capitalist riots, just in the second case they will more actively use the integration of activists.

Trump is over now, but if he and his henchmen are not punished, electoral trumpism could return again in two years. From a practical point of view, it is extremely important to resist the attempts of the fascists to organize. You also need to keep in mind that ignoring the fascists strengthens them. But the biggest threat is the State. This is a good moment to remind people that cops don't protect us. They embody all the worst in society.

The main revolutionary points of conflict in the United States are still the racism of the police and immigration authorities, as well as exploitation at home and at work. It is necessary to give a decisive rebuff to the cops-murderers and attempts to evict for non-payment. We're not here to defend elections.
