Morristown: The Struggle between Immigration and Fascism

Armed neo-Nazis assault Anti-fascists in Morristown after anti-immigrant rally; Nazis lie, press distorts, and cops arrest 3 anti-fascists

July 29, 2007

Wherever neo-Nazis go, injustice follows. Morristown on Saturday was no different.

After the July 28, 2007 anti-immigrant rally in Morristown, NJ, two neo-Nazis attacked antifascists behind town hall. The neo-Nazis, 40-year old Frederick K. Williams ("Erick_K_W" on Stormfront) and Annette Williams of North Bergen, NJ, jumped from their pick-up truck armed with baseball bats and knives and assaulted pro-immigrant counter-protesters.

An Anarchist Communist Strategy for Rural, Southern Appalachia

Class antagonism takes a multiplicity of forms: Environmental struggles can also pit the impoverished against the profiteers. In the mountains of Appalachia, anger against Mountaintop Removal coal mining overshadows labor struggles, or even the war in Iraq, as the single issue that most arouses the passions of the common folk.

Analysis: Antifa Black Bloc, Lewiston Maine

WCC (World Church of the Creator), who surprisingly worked with NA (National Alliance) on this one, picked a good town to stir up racism in. It is no surprise that the WCC is trying to channel attitudes toward the recent influx of Somali residents into racist ideology. When city officials (i.e., Mayor Raymond) make blatantly racist statements against the Somali people, and the Lewiston police department participates in their own hate crimes against local Somalis, it makes it easier for people in the community to think that being racist is normal and the answer to the city's problems.

Historic Oppression of Immigrant Groups in Maine

Maine has a sad history when it comes to racism and xenophobia. In the early 1900s Maine had over 150,000 active members of the KKK, more than all but a few of the states in the South. It was Franco-Americans who bore the brunt of their attacks, but the Irish Catholics were also a target. Today it is the National Alliance and the World Church of the Creator who are attempting to carry on the historic legacy of the Klan in Maine. These racists are anti-chistrian, anti-semitic, racist, sexist, and homophobic to their core. They are just as violent as the Klan of old and are seeking to regain the numbers they once had. They provide no real answers to the problems of lack of affordable housing, shrinking job market, and sagging education system. Instead they seek to divide communities and plant seeds of hatred. We must not allow this to occur in our communities.

Lessons of the Israeli-Lebanese War for the Anarchist Movement

The war between Israel and Hezballah is temporarily over. The left has taken a range of positions on the Israeli-Lebanese war. Anarchists have opposed the U.S.-Israeli aggression, pointing out the reactionary nature of both sides in the war. However, many have tended to equate the two sides, to treat them as equally bad, and to call for opposing the war on both sides. While there is a good deal of confusion on this issue among anarchists, it is my impression that most have failed to support the oppressed against the oppressor in this war.

  • BOOK REVIEW: A People's History of Iraq: The Iraqi Communist Party, Workers' Movements, and the Left, 1924-2004

    This slim volume focuses almost exclusively on the activities of the Iraq Communist Party (ICP) and is a powerful antidote to the patronizing orientalism many leftists and anti-war activists have towards Iraq.
