Faerie Fire — On Revolutionary Queer History: Part One

Comrade Val To say that “Stonewall was a riot” has become something of a cliche in the last ten years amongst LGBT people. What began as an earnest attempt to re-inject some radical energy into a community that had long been co-opted for empire has now become as meaningless and co-opted as the rainbow flag itself. Figures such as Marsha P Johnson and Silvia Rivera, … Continue reading Faerie Fire — On Revolutionary Queer History: Part One

Uprising Continues In Saint Louis Jail – 117 Inmates Seize Fourth Floor

Around 3:00 AM on Saturday morning, inmates once again rose in the maroon, slave rebel tradition, following in the footsteps of the Attica rebels of 1971, who rose and demanded to be treated as human beings, not as beasts. Reactionary governor Nelson Rockefeller mobilized the National Guard to suppress that uprising, resulting in several dead. On Saturday morning in the heart of Saint Louis, windows were smashed, items were thrown from windows, fires were lit, and banners/signs demanding “Freedom for 57” were made and displayed. “Free 57” refers to the 50 odd rebel inmates who were transferred to the Workhouse after previous demonstrations. This is a solidarity uprising and an uprising for human rights, and a natural response to state repression. A sign asking “What about Anthony Smith” was also seen. Anthony Smith was a Black man murdered by Police Officer Jason Stockley on December 20, 2011. The failure to indict Stockley touched off weeks of protests in 2017, which were met with brutal repression ordered by Mayor Lyda Krewson (D).
