Revolutionary Solidarity: A Critical Reader for Accomplices

B7sy67gCcAARzyA

01.20.15 - Check out this new reader that compiles some of the best texts that critique "ally" politics as well as the closely linked, 'non-profit industrial complex.' As the text, 'Accomplices not Allies" writes: "The ally industrial complex has been established by activists whose careers depend on the “issues” they work to address...Ally has also become an identity, disembodied from any real mutual understanding of support. The term ally has been rendered ineffective and meaningless...But we need to know who has our backs, or more appropriately: who is with us, at our sides?"

In the last several months, the city of Albany has attempted to remove the residents on the Albany Bulb and place them in a jail like dormitory. Police harassment has also increased, with police giving out tickets, destroying camps, and even shooting someone's dog. Few residents have stayed in the trailers and around 50 people still live on the Bulb. Bulb supporters have also organized a variety of camp-outs, actions, educational events, and marches. Read…
