I make somewhat regular, if small, donations to the Antifa Defense Fund. I
do it much in line with the critical support that we gave to the SLA in
1974. Criticize them for acting as a small band of armed revolutionaries in
the name of our class, supporting them against the assaults of the state.
We passed out flyers called "Let the ruling classes tremble at a
communistic revoution"
(link leads to the same flyer passed out at a subsequent rally the
following month) stating such while the shooting was going on. I was
arrested the day after the shootout handing out a second flyer "We applaud
the people who applauded the SLA's defense". This in a solemn nod to the
people of the neighborhood who yelled mighty cheers when the SLA's lone
automatic (an M2A, basically an M1 with a selector switch) spat back at the
firepower of the murderous cops who quelled their fire from a crawl space
with a firebombing of the house above them.

Below are two recent letters regarding the ANTIFA and their info on their
defense fund (which I became aware of when they sent $700 to a comrade
facing a gun charge):

To: Antifa Intl


Just forwarded widely your donation button
and, esp so to the 1400 person listserve that I am a moderator of (Dope X).

However, my oft times done, forwarding of your donation requests, gives the
impression that I am either a member of or a supporter of Antifa. I am a
critical supporter. I support your efforts because of *1.)* the assistance
you provide to jailed revolutionaries; and, *2.)* because I am a firm
believer in left self-defense.

As to the *first* of these, I only became aware of your support for jailed
comrades when you provided much needed aid to a close comrade of mine (cced
in this note) who was facing charges; and as to the *second*, left
self-defense, becomes more urgent daily now. Trouble looms ahead and not
only from the cops. There is a very real danger of terrorist attacks by
right wing racists.

So, though I disagree with some Antifa actions, tactics and your overall
strategy, I make what small contributions as I am able, as you know, these
small contributions have been made for some time now. And will continue to
be done so.

Donations are denominated in Canadian Dollars. One CAD is equal to 76 cents
and so a $10CAD donation = $7.60 US. You may *donate here *
