Opening Up To Covid

IntroductionIt has been over a year since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic in March 2020. It has also been just over a year since the British government reluctantly announced the first of a series of half-measure lockdowns, as part of a wider pandemic response that deliberately  channeled the…

May 16, 2021 | 5 minutes read | Tags: If Liverpool is to have any claim of being a "socialist city", we must relearn the lessons of its radical past. The left needs to abandon electoral politics, including Labour and Joanne Anderson, and return to the path towards revolution, towards liberation. On…

On Line Of Duty, or, When Is Copaganda Not Copaganda?

“I was absolutely outraged by the level of casual and extreme corruption that was being portrayed, as the way the police is in 2018. It’s so far from that. The standards and professionalism are so high... Both series actually make us look a bit cool and interesting – a net positive, probably…

London Mayoral Elections, or Why We Don’t Vote

Red Fightback does not stand in elections, and we do not support voting in them. We object to the capitalist state and any attempt to legitimise its violence towards us working and oppressed people. We are often asked why, and criticised; surely we should be supporting a candidate? If somebody is go…

Something is Rotten: Johnson’s Latest Scandals.

Kalaallit Nunaat; Colonialism And The Right To Self-Determination

April 18, 2021 | 3 minutes read | Tags: News & Analysis This election in Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland) was most of all a question of what kind of independence is wanted.

Fuck the CREDs

Note: the CRED report uses the term “ethnic minority groups” throughout. Red Fightback recognise that people of colour constitute a global majority, and this is not a term we employ in our analysis. However for readability in tandem with the CRED report, this article does employ the term at cert…

Anatomy of a Breenius

It’s perhaps a strange choice to produce a Marxist analysis of Neil Breen. The near perfect definition of an outsider artist, Breen’s films are confusing to the point of incomprehensible, filmed on essentially no budget, and often feature Breen himself filling a variety of roles from director an…

Reflections On Bourgeois Lithuanian Independence

March 22, 2021 | 3 minutes read | Tags: Oaks were always sacred trees in Lithuanian culture. Unfortunately, we became obscured by the forest of the USSR and our growing sacred oak is all but forgotten.

Distributed by Fox Searchlight, a subsi…

Bad Blood

Reflections from a member.I don’t want a person with AIDS for president. I don’t want a president.It’s LGBT history month. Even writing that is a betrayal, honestly, because it shows how effective the divorcing of “LGBT issues” has been from its broader origins in anti-racist, anti-capital…

Lessons From Assata

On 1st January 2021, bourgeois media outlets such as the New York Post kicked off the New Year by announcing the FBI’s renewed offer of up to 1 million USD in reward money for tips regarding the whereabouts of Black revolutionary Assata Shakur, who was framed and charged in the killing of a New Je…
