DO IT LIKE DURHAM
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2017, 5:00 P.M.
5920 SECOND AVENUE, DETROIT (dinner served)
HEAR A FIRST-HAND REPORT FROM THE YOUNG DURHAM, N.C. FREEDOM FIGHTERS FACING FELONY CHARGES FOR TEARING DOWN THE CONFEDERATE MONUMENT IN DURHAM, NC.
The struggle against white supremacy in all its forms is just! The events in Charlottesville, followed by the action in Durham that toppled the Confederate monument, are part of a growing movement to combat some of the most heinous, racist sections of far right that have been emboldened by Trump. In response, cities across the country have preemptively taken down Confederate monuments — not because these politicians want to “do the right thing,” but because they fear rebellion and the strength of a united, multinational movement.
In spite of this, Trump’s bellicose attacks on our movement have continued — including the egregious pardoning of arch-racist Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the elimination of DACA, and a media onslaught equating anti-fascist fighters with Nazi and KKK scum. Discuss how to heighten the fight against racism and white supremacy in Michigan and across the U.S.
