Protesters fill Texas Capitol to fight SB4, the state’s new anti-sanctuary cities law

  • On Monday, the Texas House was briefly overtaken by hundreds of people protesting the state’s new anti-sanctuary cities law, known as SB4, the Associated Press reported.
  • The new law, which was signed by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on May 7, will require both local police chiefs and sheriffs to comply with federal requests to hold criminal suspects for possible deportation. If they do not comply, they could lose their jobs or end up in jail themselves.
  • To oppose the bill, hundreds of demonstrators showed up in red shirts with the words “fight back” emblazoned on the front.
  • The noise prompted House leadership to stop its session, the last one before its recess. Read More (5/29/17 5:50 PM)

Antifa protest against the Golden Dawn offices in “Larissa” Train Station in Athens, Greece and defacement of fascist graffiti

Antifa League Athens is a self-organized football championship that opposes commercialised and professional sports. Contrary to the above the Antifa League is all about the pure love for football as we first felt it when we used to play in open fields, squares and streets, with dirty jerseys and bloody knees. Against careerism and drugs, instead we propose solidarity and the joy of the game.

Through Antifa League we are claiming our right to public spaces and free time. Each match guarantees the ability of each and every individual to socialize and play football, all being equal, with no discrimination and restrictions, against the dominant system of control and exclusion.

“Larissa” Train Station in Athens, Greece is a working class, as well as, a multinational neighborhood, shaped by diversity and multiculturalism. In this neighborhood, some of us shed sweat, blood, felt joy or sadness about off the post kicks, goals and outs. But we have learned to respect our neighbors, but also to fight to the end.

The offices of Golden Dawn have never been part of the neighborhood and our presence on Sunday, May 7 was a practical proof of this. In a neighborhood that lives and breathes its diversity there’s no  space for any kind of fascist! Our presence in the fields and the conduct of the 8th round made it clear that, like in every neighborhood, the area belongs to those who respect and love it. Each and every one of us will continue to fight fascist and intolerant practices in every aspect of our everyday lives.

Our answer to fascism is multifaceted anti-fascist action!Our only country is our childhood years!

So here is a new tactic:
Since Paul Ryan has blocked his office phones and fax numbers, and is turning away people who show up to deliver petitions, time to change tactics.
Please mail postcards to his HOME address saying NO to defunding Planned Parenthood, NO to repealing the ACA, and NO to privatizing Medicare!

  • On Wednesday, Trump administration launched the Victims of Immigrant Crime Engagement Office
