Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation has received word about the white supremacist, fascist violence committed in Charlottesville today. We are writing to you from our national convention, and we are all feeling for you, together.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our comrade in struggle. Our hearts and minds go out to their loved ones.
At this time we understand that members of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and Democratic Socialists of American (DSA) were injured; details are forthcoming among conflicted reports of further injuries and at least one death in this attack.
We cannot sit idly by and allow this violence to be perpetuated against our communities.
We stand in solidarity with anti-racist activists in Charlottesville today, their families, the IWW and DSA members present, and all those involved in the struggle against the rising tide of fascism worldwide.
Together, we will not be slowed, and we will not be stopped.
“Mourn the dead, fight like hell for the living.”
– Mother Jones
Your support is needed! – Local organizers in Charlottesville have created a Fundly page to raise money towards medical expenses for those injured during the protest.
