What skills, tools and approaches are useful in encouraging white people to sustain balanced engagement with anti-racism/racial justice education and work? How can we cultivate resilience (as opposed to white fragility) in ourselves, our communities, and our movements? White Fragility is defined by Robin DiAngelo as “A state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation … Continued

Socialist Night School: The Last General Strike @ East Bay Community Space
Sep 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
A general strike is a strike action that includes a large part of the total labor force in a city, region, or country. General strikes are characterized by the participation of workers in a multitude of workplaces, and tend to involve entire communities. The idea of the general strike is powerful precisely because a massive and persistent withdrawal of labor can bring a capitalist city or even an entire economy to a halt. The last general strike in the United States occurred here in the East Bay in 1946. One … Continued

Reigning in your heart is, most like, a reluctance to surrender the rent of land to community as a whole. Good socialists, otherwise ready to bash Capitalism and the current power-mongers, grow chill, dull, reticent, aloof when the nuts and bolts of transforming the rent of land into public revenue is proposed. Whether the retort is, “The poor grandmothers will be turned out of their homes” or “Land values aren’t significant” or “Marx and Engels said a tax on land values is not enough!” it’s all a dodge to avoid … Continued
