Turn me over, brothers, I am done enough on this side

Anarchists, today vs. yesterday

On anarchists and anti-fascists at Occupy Wall Street and in the aftermath of the Trump inauguration, the protest riots against Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech at Berkeley…and more on the Richard Spencer on-camera sucker punch.

This is particularly interesting to me because I’m in the middle of reading Piers Brendon’s history of the decade leading up to World War II, The Dark Valley: A Panorama of the 1930s, where that era’s incarnation of the anarchist gets some interesting coverage.

With far-right groups edging into the mainstream with the rise of President Trump, self-described anti-fascists and anarchists are vowing to confront them at every turn, and by any means necessary — including violence.
