Hellhole – week of 6/18

Capitalism and fascism are two sides of the same system of oppression: one economic, one political, with the same end of enriching those at the top at our expense.

The Hellhole – Week of 6/11

Well, folks, it’s been a week of antis, and most of them bad. We’ve got anti-tax ordinances, anti-unhoused news pieces, anti-union activity – but on the bright side, we’ve also got a bit of anti-fascist action.

The Hellhole – Week of 5/7

It’s all government this week as we show down with state universities exploiting their workers, the spreading rebellion against austerity, and the Mayor’s Big Idea.

Hellhole Week of April 30

Capitalism is a system that keeps people down, solidarity is an action where we lift each other up. The week of May Day brought counter-revolution to Seattle.
