Tennessee Tech professors face discipline for calling colleague a racist

Andrew William Smith (Andy Sunfrog) was the mainstay of the Fifth Estate in the early 2000s. He contributed articles since the late 1980s and has a review in the upcoming edition we are just about to publish.
He has always fought for social justice, and for that is under attack by the right-wing in Tennessee. He needs our solidarity. Forward this wherever you can.

A debate over a middle school mascot has spilled onto the Tennessee Tech campus, forcing big questions about what free speech and racism really mean.

'White Lives Matter' rallies flop as hardly anyone shows up

Their turnout was SO bad that we didn't even know they happened. Part of the credit for that in this article is granted to "far-left activists"! Go antifa!

Neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists planned rallies in dozens of cities Sunday but hardly anyone showed up.

Kronstadt as Revolutionary Utopia, 1921-2021

Conference about: "Kronstadt as Revolutionary Utopia, 1921-2021," held online on March 20-21, 2021.
https://kronstadt2021.wordpress.com/

This is an internationally organized conference that aims to commemorate the momentous March 1921 uprising of the Kronstadt sailors, which was described by the scholar Orlando Figes as an “island version of the Paris Commune” within the Russian Revolution that began in February 1917.
By bringing together historians, artists, freethinkers, anarchists, and syndicalists to share their perspectives about the past, present, and “living past” in relation to the Kronstadt Commune, we hope
to celebrate People’s History by recalling the sailors’ courage in
espousing a fresh “Third Revolution” against ossified Bolshevik rule.
We seek to explore how the tragic legacy of the Kronstadt Commune’s suppression lives on in the support provided of late by some self-styled leftists to the rehabilitation of authoritarian discourses and bloody counter-revolutions—in Syria, above all.
We further aim to examine how the Kronstadters’ model of autonomous, anti-authoritarian joint struggle among workers, peasants, soldiers, and sailors continues to be globally relevant in our own day.

The conference, which consists of 4 panels, 2 film screenings, 2 public readings, and a closing social event, will be streamed over Twitch, where we will take questions and comments for discussion with panelists and speakers. The full schedule is available on our website.

Beating Our Heads Against the Wall – It Was Worth It (2020)

Beating Our Heads Against the Wall – It Was Worth It (2020) is a short
documentary film, that depicts a period of anarchist activities in
Croatia (2008-2020), with a focus on the regions of Kvarner
(Quarnaro/Carnaro) and Istria.

The photographs and graphics used in this film are from the period
between 2008 and 2020. These visuals depict the student occupation of the university, street protests, workers' strikes, and visual propaganda. On the audio track (an interview from 2016),
Radio Borba (Eng. Radio Struggle) interviews Eugen Babić after his
conviction in a criminal procedure from 2014 onwards.
Also included are audio clips of a protest in 2013, after which the police attacked the protesters. In this act of repression, 15 policemen were involved in the apprehension of Eugen Babić, in which others also suffered consequences,
including a policeman. The focus of the radio interview is on those
events.
