Scranton Police Department Facebook Group: A Digital Occupation

At its height of popularity, the Scranton Police Department public Facebook group was packed with over 15,000 ardent supporters of the local police.  Most members of the online group were local to Scranton, Pennsylvania, or had lived in the area at some point in their lives.  The group was founded in early 2012 by Allie Massey, a Scranton resident, who cheerfully administrated the bustling online community.

If you scroll through the content of the page you can view a myriad of Blue Lives Matter Flags, memes calling for prayers and safety of the police, notices of missing people reports and lost pets.  You’ll also view a smattering of racist, sexist and anti-Obama content.

Happi is currently being held captive by the U.S. Empire around his traditional Lakota homelands (so-called Bismarck, North Dakota). He is in Burleigh / Morton County Detention Center. Any and all funds will be used for his freedom. As a frontline warrior, he took courage during the #NoDAPL struggle by putting his body in front of earth-destroying construction equipment and stood up for the people. Happi continues to inspire with his humble and happy spirit.


Sleep Well, Richard Spencer

Adolph Hipster Believed to Have Been Detained After Failed Conference

Hope you're bonded before MSU, buddy

UPDATE:  While our crew is still adamant that Spencer was indeed present - It is appearing that he was not one of those arrested, but was, in fact, detained.

Great Lakes Antifa has reason to believe that Richard Spencer may be or has been in police custody tonight, following his and FMI's failed attempt to rally his merry band of chucklefucks in Detroit, MI earlier this afternoon.



La Asamblea de Wisconsin terminó la sesión sin aprobar el proyecto de ley anti-inmigrante AB190/SB275

Republicado con permiso de Voces de la Frontera

MADISON, WISCONSIN – La Asamblea de Wisconsin terminó la madrugada del viernes sin aprobar un proyecto de ley antiinmigrante, AB190/SB275, que hubiera permitido a los empleados públicos locales de hacer perfil racial, interrogar y detener a los miembros de la comunidad por su estatus migratorio. El proyecto de ley también obligaría a las autoridades a entregar a los inmigrantes al Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (conocido como ICE en sus siglas en inglés). Voces de la Frontera junto con otras organizaciones, granjeros y líderes religiosos empezamos una lucha muy fuerte en oposición a esta ley anti-inmigrante.


Wisconsin Assembly Ends Session without Passing Anti-Sanctuary Hate Bill

Republished with permission from Voces de la Frontera

MADISON, WISCONSIN – The Wisconsin Assembly adjourned early Friday morning without passing an anti-immigrant bill, AB190/SB275, that would have allowed local employees to racially profile, interrogate, and detain community members for immigration status. The bill also would have mandated authorities turn immigrants over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This comes following months of pressure from immigrant community members and diverse supporters including farmers and religious leaders who urged lawmakers to reject the bill.



Throw Down in Motown: Alt-right plans conference in Detroit

The alt-right think-tank Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas, which makes it sound like a deli near the checkout at Walmart, should more appropriately be called The Church of I’m-gonna-get-back-at-you-god-dang-it, which met perpetually in the moldy basement by the dryer next to grandpa’s crossbow and hustlers.  That is, until they found the keys to uncle Adolf’s Freud F150, a monster truck with five gas pedals and no steering wheel.

Now, theyre looking for a parking spot in Mexicantown.

Combatting the Prison Industrial Complex

Advocating Decriminalization of Illicit Drug Use in Nashville

Nashville, TN - On February 6th, 2018 local residents converged on the Cordell Hull Building in Nashville, Tennessee to encourage the Commissioner to support a bill that would effectively decriminalize marijuana use.  Local anarchists and antifascists (Nashville AntiFa, Nashville Anarchist Black Cross, and Middle Tennessee Autonomous Network) gathered to advocate for this bill.  Although the vast majority of citizens attending were advocating decriminalization to facilitate the utility of medical and recreational cannabis, anarchist and antifascist support was largely predicated on the fact that this bill would be an important cap in the prison pipeline for petty drug crimes.
