A compilation of arguments addressing some of the claims and conspiracy theories that have been circulating about "outside agitators" and "ANTIFA" in recent days. These were originally posted as social media threads by Crimethinc and It's Going Down.

Rumors that ascribe all significant actions to the state are second cousin to conspiracy theories that evil puppeteers like George Soros are behind all protest activity. They’re disempowering and usually circulate the most among people who lack on-the-ground access to events. Crimethinc

The country-wide rebellion that was kicked off by the police murder of George Floyd continues to grow, as across the US people hit the streets in solidarity. Mass demonstrations, freeway shut-downs, riots, looting, and clashes with law enforcement were widespread; as authorities rushed to call in the national guard. In many cities, large scale demonstrations that remained peaceful were also held. This round-up was originally published by It's Going Down.

Rioting and major clashes with the police has broken out in over 30 cities, with solidarity demonstrations and protests happening in many more across the so-called US and internationally. It's Going Down

A report from It's Going Down on the uprising in Minneapolis and solidarity actions elsewhere.

...rioters broke into the [precinct] building, finally forcing police to flee in their vehicles. Once the building was empty, people then began to loot it and then set it on fire. What followed was a festive, party-life atmosphere for several hours while the precinct burned. It's Going Down

Crimethinc analyse the riots in Minneapolis, the first large-scale revolt in the US since the start of the Covid pandemic.

...some of us face threats even more deadly than COVID-19. It is worth risking our lives to fight for a world in which no one will be murdered the way that George Floyd was—and what is happening in Minneapolis shows that people are ready to. Crimethinc

An update on Jalil Muntaqim, an elderly Black Liberation prisoner and former Black Panther who has been infected with Covid-19 in prison after the New York Attorney General deliberately blocked his court-ordered release on medical/humanitarian grounds. This story was first published by the San Francisco Bay View.

A writ of habeas corpus on behalf of Jalil requesting relief based on his heightened vulnerability to contract the virus was filed on Monday, April 13... Despite Judge Schick’s decision to release him, Jalil has remained in custody and is now suffering from COVID-19 with great risk to his life.

Workers organised in “Padrone di Merda” have been charged and ordered to leave their city. They are raising money for legal fees, and you can support them here.

When the institutions said #andràtuttobene (everything will be fine), we now know what they meant: it will be fine for the shit bosses, the only people who are truly protected. That is why revenge against these bosses won’t stop. It is time to put our masks on again.

Where did an investment fund economist get this knowledge and authority in order to reach that kind of conclusion? In other words: what is the disease that has been driving and legitimizing these people to mobilize for the reopening of Brazil's economy while death rates only increase? Who produced this? Where did it come from? How does it reproduce? The answer is: we are dealing with 21st century Nazism with “natural selection” varnish. Systematic extermination as an ideology.

“Following our numbers a little, I would say that Brazil is doing well”, says Guilherme Benchimol, economist at XP Investimentos, “the peak of the disease has passed when we analyze the middle class, the upper class”.

An organizer with Keep Your Rent Hamilton reflects on their rent strike campaign and May Day outreach efforts. This article was previously published on North Shore Counter-Info and It's Going Down.

Immediately upon pulling into the lot, a wiry and incredibly agitated young man started shouting at us that the cops had already been called. He followed up by loudly complaining: “You’re making my job harder. I have to collect rent from these people!”

These universities spend a lot of money, staff, and actions to say that they are fighting the pandemic. But the treatment displayed for the world is not applied to workers – they need to struggle and organize themselves.

An article by Kevin "Rashid" Johnson exposing how Indiana prisons have responded to the pandemic. Since this article was first written, a hunger strike has broken out over the conditions described here.

Pendleton officials attempted to forcibly move a prisoner who had tested positive for COVID-19 into the gym, where some 20 prisoners were quarantined who had NOT tested positive.

Some things are worth risking our lives for. Perpetuating capitalism is not one of them. If we have to risk our lives, let’s risk them for something worthwhile, like creating a world in which no one has to risk death for a paycheck. Life for the market means death for us. Crimethinc
