Subject:   Re: [september17discuss] results of the cluster proposal?

i agree with you-that article is not sound---and if we remember that stupid alarmist deadfish screaming "im out" because of a rape.. this is similar cop out attempt by those who are alarmists--they want folks to leave by discrediting our efforts...
So, basically we need an all our antiracist policy put into effect so that racism, sexism, antisemitism, islamophobia,--these are ways to delegitimize the work we do and can not be overlooked enough. I am referring to the all the sectarian violence happening in Tahrir by military who is causing divisions between copts and muslims, similarly, we will be extremely weak if we do not address divisions that are employed to undermine our actions. We need more direct actions with the press and mobilize folks for anti-oppression actions that will highlight our identity as a diverse progressive movement.
And it is an important part of any "structure" proposal.
Thanks in solidarity,
