Marched through the streets of Olympia tonight with a banner saying “smash fascism”. We were about 50 people stopping traffic and walking through intersections and getting attention. This was in response to the “white mans march” done in olympia by these Neo-Nazis who regularly beat up people for being anarchist, gay, or of color. 

A better explanation written by someone else

“Obama stickers, co-ops, and hardcore shows aren’t solving the problem. There’s no such thing as post-racial! It’s easy to be self-congratulatory in whitebread Olympia, but scratch the surface a bit and you’ll find that we have just as many problems with white supremacy and racism as anywhere else.
This is native land, the city as it exists today is a result of ongoing genocide and the forced expulsion of native peoples. This region is Nisqually, Squaxin, and Chehalis land.It was not so long ago that the sundown laws were in effect here in Olympia, people of color (POC) were not allowed in town after dark. Though the laws are gone the legacy of this policy is still socially enforced. For example the recent string of violent attacks against people of color in Downtown Olympia. The recent attempt at a “White Man March” in Olympia employed banner drops with the taglines “Diversity = white genocide.” This is blatantly false and ignores the reality of ongoing systemic white supremacy and genocide of indigenous peoples.Many of the participants in the attempted “White Man March” in Olympia are members of the American Freedom Party. The American Freedom Party (AFP) is a nationwide white supremacist organization that markets itself as an upstanding, family-friendly, and nonviolent political party by portraying white people as an oppressed group, and themselves as an advocacy organization similar to the NAACP. However, locally, they have embraced a number of white power veterans with histories of race-based violence and murder, such as Kyle Brewster.One banner was dropped during the “White Man March” outside of SPSCC (South Puget Sound Community Collage) in opposition to a diversity meeting that was canceled days before the march due to concerns that POC self determination was “anti-white.” When POC organize autonomously against the system of white supremacy that permeates American culture the white power structure often responds to shut it down even using the language of “reverse racism.” The “White Man March” is a clear example of the AFP manipulating language around oppression to obscure actual white racism that is an integral part of the society we live in. Both the racist attacks downtown and the organizing of the AFP must be opposed. We want to send a clear message to the Fascists and to all proponents of white supremacy that WE FIGHT BACK!”

*Previously posted here, BUT now and then the photographer interchanges which photos are available on her website, giving me a few new ones each time. I’ll take that excuse to repost her work any time    : )

Read more on the project, and three photographer’s reflections on her photo essay here

photo 9#’s description from Mohammad Al-Azza:

In this photograph, the gazes of these two old men sitting side by side in a taxi are full of contemplation. “Our story is not yet over. Our case is not yet solved. Are we still here? Have we still not returned to our homes and villages?” Their gazes brim with memories of something lost, of their youth. Everything in this old taxicab references their past, even the black leather seats that coordinate with the two men’s matching clothes. The kafiyya and ’iqal, or black band used to hold the kafiyya in place, represent our heritage. Even though the two men are not looking at each other, or even in the same direction, I sense they are in a deep conversation about a topic familiar to both of them. It is as if they are saying to each other: “We have traveled together, you and I—we dreamed of return, to spend one night of our many nights, full of singing and dabka dancing, with our family and neighbors. Or to spend a day in the fields, taking care of our land, the land that offered us the most delicious olives and olive oil. Will we ever taste a za’tar like that za’tar again? A journey, we have lived, but here we are, right now.” Our memories accompany us. They wound us every day. But our hopes of return will not be diminished, our dream to spend a treasured night on our land.
