We’d call it fascism!!!

85 Years of Working Class People fighting Fascism!! – Joe Solo (Now we vote them in power!!)

Joe Solo

Yesterday at 07:32  · 4th October 2021 marks the 85th anniversary of the Battle Of Cable Street, when the East End of London rose up to prevent Oswald Mosley and his Blackshirts passing through their communities with the battle-cry ‘No Pasaran!’ or ‘They Shall Not Pass’.Worth remembering too that the people of Leeds had done the same at the Battle Of Holbeck Moor on 27th September, and Hull had routed the fascists at Corporation Field that July.Up and down the country Working Class communities organised and fought back, and though Cable Street will always be remembered as the culmination of their efforts, it was by no means the only resistance to the BUF.Interned during the war, the Blackshirts returned in the post-war years when they were defeated by the 43 Group, a network of veterans of both Cable Street and WW2.Originally rallying around anti-semitism, the fascists switched to anti-immigration as workers were shipped here from the far corners of the Commonwealth to fill jobs vacated by those lost in the war against Hitler. These days fascists couple this with wider anti-Muslim propaganda, but are still very much alive and well on UK streets.So today maybe it’s a good time to reflect on the lessons taught us by those who stood in their way in 1936, raised their fists and would not let them pass; if not, we have no right to stand on the shoulders of such giants and watch their victories fade before our very eyes

.No Pasaran.

Not then.

Not now.

Not ever.

Vote Fascism out!!!!!

Tories – in by the back door!!!

Poetry – The Story of Fascism

The Story of Fascism

It starts with fear and hatred

Of the outsider,

Of all who are different.

It proceeds through blame

To attribute the wrongs

To the chosen targets.

It creates simplistic panaceas

Of black and white.

It is idealistic.

If only these problems

Were addressed,

These people removed,

Perfection could be achieved.

It operates through an air of superiority

Through arrogance and certainty.

Only some are worthy.

There is a hierarchy of evils.

There are means to an end.

Power is the vehicle.

Morality is shelved.

The solution requires

The methodology.

Compassion is a weakness.

It is a cancer.

It is a cancer.

It is a cancer.

That cancer is destroyed through the chemo of education, love, friendship and the final recognition that we are no better than anybody else.

We are all one, all equal.

If we work together we are stronger.

It seems we are always going through this cycle where we embrace this ideology of fascism. We are going through a phase. The right is on the march. Populism, with all its ugly hate and fear, is a growing phenomenon.

Fear of Muslims. Fear of immigration. Fear of the outsiders. It seems to generate a response. That response is a great lurch to the right. Hysteria. Fascism.

We’ve fought wars to rid ourselves of this scourge but still is regularly arises.

These people see themselves as warriors standing up for the purity of their race. They feed off the stories that generate fear and hate. They exaggerate and invent the horror stories until the minds are clouded and the defence mode is paramount.

Woody Guthrie had a sign on his guitar – THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS.

Yes – that is true. You kill fascism through education, intercourse and understanding. Music is more powerful than bullets.

Poetry – Time to make up your mind

Time to make up your mind

What sort of world do you want?

How are you going to vote?

Time to make up your mind!

There are fascists on the streets,

Fake news on the web.

Time to make up your mind!

Men abusing women

Cops shooting men.

Time to make up your mind!

Kavanaugh an abuser?

Trump a lying fraud?

Time to make up your mind!

Brexit a disaster?

May a weak fool?

Time to make up your mind!

Greedy, selfish executives

And A/I on the wind.

Time to make up your mind!

It seems to me that we are not very good at making up our minds. We tend to vacillate. We get caught up in the mood of the moment, to go along with the flow.

There is so much going on, so many issues that need addressing. There are so many problems and so many fools, manipulators and self-servers who would love to convince us that they have the answers.

They don’t have the answers. I think they are using us.

Poetry – Brexit Blues

Brexit Blues

I’ve got the Brexit Blues

And the Trump grump

Being fed the toxic news

By the great orange chump.

Divide and rule

The faithful get their dues.

Dismantle all that’s good

The victors get to choose.

Billions gone

At the stroke of a pen

Through the caustic lies

Of power-mad men.

I’ve got the Brexit Blues

And the Trump grump

Being fed the toxic news

By the great orange chump.

Opher 23.6.2018

We’ve been led up the garden path by power-mad men who have duped us with their lies.

They work on fear and hate, target certain groups – immigrants and Muslims this time – and create division.

Their actions will cost us dear. Already Brexit has cost us billions. It will make us all the poorer.

This is the face of the new populist fascism.
