These are actual tiny child handcuffs used by the U.S. government to restrain captured Native American children and drag them away from their families to send them to the Indian boarding schools where their identities, cultures and their rights to speak their Native languages were forcefully stripped away from them.
Today in 1936, our brother Durruti died in Madrid. Rest in peace, comrade.
Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to…

I wonder if there’s any first-language Spanish speakers in that group
(my assumption is no. and what i’m getting at is that i’m tired of spanish being the anti-fascist go-to language of white people worldwide. especially when there’s no discourse among the people who appropriate the spanish language of the way fascism has affected spanish lives and the way spanish fascism has affected their lives. it really doesn’t go beyond “so fascism happened in spain.” idk why people just want to use the spanish language whenever the fuck)
No Pasaran has been a slogan close to the heart of street antifascists in Britain since the Battle of Cable Street in October 1936 - it wasn’t appropriation, they used the same slogan that their comrades were using in Spain at the same time to show solidarity with them. Spanish antifascists were at that time touring the working class areas of Britain encouraging people to take up that slogan, asking them to come and fight with them, as brothers and sisters against fascism - many did.
This is an anti-fascist ‘go-to’ slogan internationally, and the reason is that it speaks to a time when working people came together to form a unified antifascist force in Spain, it was an amazing thing, and it continues to inspire generations of antifascists… Take it from me, the discourse really does go beyond “so fascism happened in Spain”, football ultras like the ones pictured above are actually one of the few groups keeping the discourse of internationalist working class antifascism alive in Europe. We use that slogan with the up-most respect in the the spirit of class solidarity.
The most fitting tribute to the working class dead of the world wars would be to march every aristocrat, general and two faced politician down to the cenotaph, line them up against it and fucking shoot the bastards
