Class War 10/2019: “Yellow vests”

“Here we are / Here we are”
“For the honor of the workers / And for a better world”

Long Live The Revolt!

After another night of revolt in the streets of The United States due to the killing of George Floyd, president Trump, from a bunker in the White House, announced that he would designate “Antifa” as a terrorist organization. This finger-pointing seeks to frame a spontaneous and manifold movement (without capitals) as an Organization, not only assigning it an ideology but also a functionality that is hierarchical and in consonance with state logic.
