Is this march going to end up on the Boston common again this year, or are we going to stay in the community ?

IAC, WWP and/or ANSWER are authoritarian central planners and way whack...but you know what...they are one of the ONLY groups to reach out to and mobilize with people of color in Boston. So stop whining and start working in solidarity with Roxbury on issues that people in that community are demanding…than no one will need IAC, WWP and/or ANSWER. Don't go to support them...go and March to stand in solidarity with people of color in Boston!

why were comments criticizing ANSWER and the IAC hidden? what the fuck?

they are not the only people working with organizations or people of color in the boston area. where's your proof? i used to work for ANSWER and the only thing we did with people of color while i was there was to mention racism on flyers, have an isolated office in JP, and have white people publish articles on black power (with the exception of one man from the busdrivers union, everyone i worked with there was white).
Re: March 18 - Demonstration
05 Mar 2006
At almost every ANSWER/Workers World Party demonstration for the last three years or so the fascist/white supremacists show up and stand menacingly on the edge of the demonstration (sometimes, like at the Gay Wedding Day rally, they stand right in front of the speakers platform.)

The Workers World dominated security force for the demonstration usually tells people to ignore the ‘fascists.’

Sometimes the International Socialist Organization, the Spartacist League, and Progressive Labor get together and start chanting and confronting the ‘fascists.’ But the people with the sound system do nothing to mobilize the crowd.

Hundreds of people chanting and raising their fists in the air can force the half a dozen ‘fascists’ to leave the area for their own protection. Ignoring them only encourages them to come back next time with a few more cohorts.

When we start having thirty or fifty fascists standing on the edge of leftist/progressive demonstrations we will all be in danger. The time to plan to militantly confront the ‘fascists’ is now while there numbers are small and their organizational confidence is low.

But don’t look to Workers World to prepare for this danger at this demonstration. They seek to keep things “peaceful, legal,” so that ministers and imams can call on ‘god’ from the podium and Democratic Party politicians, like Democratic City Councilor Charles Turner, can feel comfortable speaking from the stage and getting their names in the newspaper addressing a demonstration of hundreds or thousands. We must face this ‘fascist’ danger now.

To: by back up your facts

The comments criticizing ANSWER and the IAC are not hidden. They are on the other flyer post. They were never posted here, though they should have been prolly.

One thing that ANSWER does is actually have their meeting in Roxbury! This is key to organizing, having meetings in a place that is accessible to people. Another thing they do is to always put the issues of racism and poverty up front, along with war etc...(even if you feel they are disingenuous about it), they also mobilize in community of color around issues in those communities...now I’m not defending them as an organization, I think they are super whack and authoritarian. But damn it, they are succeeding where other (mostly white) activist groups have failed...I think these are some of the reasons why…and if we as NON-ANWSER non-authoritarian people want to start building alliances and working in solidarity with communities of color, we should take note of how they are doing it.
