"Working class" is not an identity it's a relationship to the means of production. For plenty of folks who *aren't* working class the real question is what are you sacrificing to support the struggles of the working class & oppressed people *globally.* What are you doing?

#Berkeley police were filmed facilitating a neo-Nazi group linked to anti-Semitic vandalism + harassment across the US putting up a banner blaming Jews for 9/11. They later traded jokes about vaccinations. CW: Anti-Semitic + homophobic slurs. itsgoingdown.org/berkeley-po…

Salute to @FightXPrisons for standing up for us. When the storm is coming down the Comrades on it, they get the word to moving and they pressure the system for our safety. Be mindful during storms, in a state of emergency, MOST times people in jails/prisons are not moved

Some of these prison and jail structures have areas located in them that automatically flood during heavy rains. We call them flood zones. So imagine what you get when a hurricane comes through #ShutEmDown2021
