Sindicalistas y defensores de los derechos de los inmigrantes dicen 4 de junio: ¡Fuera fascistas de Portland! Después de las elecciones de noviembre pasado, los ataques racistas aumentaron enormemente. La lista de los que son blancos de ataques de los racistas incluye a inmigrantes, musulmanes y judíos, afroamericanos, latinoamericanos, lo mismo que a los defensores de los derechos la mujer, los gays y las lesbianas. Muchos de los ataques han sido encabezados por grupos de choque fascistas como el Ku Klux Klan y por bandas de supremacistas blancos de la “derecha alternativa” [alt-right]. A principios del mes, cientos de elementos de esta calaña realizaron un mitin frente a un monumento en Charlottesville, estado de Virginia homenajeando los estados “confederados”, defensores de la esclavitud, que fueron derrotados en la Guerra Civil norteamericana. Luego marcharon con antorchas a la manera de los nazis alemanes. Para el 10 de junio, los fascistas han anunciado que realizarán acciones ominosas contra los musulmanes en una veintena de ciudades alrededor del país. Ahora, algunas de estas bandas amenazan con montar una provocación racista en el centro de Portland, el domingo, 4 de junio. Fingen defender la libertad de expresión. ¡Mentira! Estos abusivos y asesinos racistas buscan aterrorizar a la población agrediendo a los más vulnerables. Cuando el grupo Patriot Prayer (rezo patriótico) y otros se presentaron en Portland el 29 de abril, lo hicieron blandiendo bates de béisbol y palos, mientras portaban cascos y alardeaban con la bandera de los esclavistas y de los terroristas del KKK. Ahora, un tal “Based Stickman”, así tildado por su afán de golpear salvajemente a palos a manifestantes, también va a presentarse en Portland. El veneno racista que estos desgraciados escupen desemboca en linchamientos. Hay que pararlos. Los fascistas son enemigos mortales de la clase obrera. Aplastarían a los sindicatos para imponer una dictadura ilimitada de los patrones. Por eso, sindicatos locales de Portland y de la región noroeste de Estados Unidos han decidido usar su poder para pararlos.

Horrible asesinato doble por un nazi antimusulmán

English version here.

 ¡Movilizar el poder de la clase obrera!
¡Fuera fascistas de Portland!

Es cuestión de vida o muerte
Es hora de definirse: ¡Todos a la calle el 4 de junio!

Declaración de la iniciativa sindical de Portland contra los fascistas

Menos de un mes después de la realización de un mitin racista en East Portland, y nueve días antes de la anunciada provocación fascista a realizarse en el centro de Portland, el mortífero terrorismo racista ha asestado un golpe en la ciudad. El asesino estuvo presente de manera prominente en el mitin racista del 29 de abril. Ahora, dos valerosos hombres que lo enfrentaron están muertos, y un tercero se encuentra herido de gravedad. Musulmanes y judíos, afroamericanos, asiático-americanos, latinos, junto con los defensores de los derechos de la mujer, los gays y las lesbianas: todos están en la mira de los racistas asesinos. Ya lo hemos dicho: las concentraciones fascistas son el punto de partida para el espantoso terror racista. Incumbe a nosotros, los trabajadores, parar a los fascistas ya.

Se ha convocado una movilización de sindicalistas y de las y los que se oponen al terrorismo racista para el domingo 4 de junio, para movilizar el poder de la clase obrera tras el llamado de ¡Fascistas fuera de Portland!

La tarde del viernes 26 de mayo, Jeremy Joseph Christian, un varón blanco de 35 años, comenzó a gritar insultos racistas y amenazas de muerte a dos jóvenes mujeres que se encontraron en el tren ligero MAX en el centro de Portland. Una de ellas es negra y la otra es una musulmana que portaba un velo (hiyab).

Cuando de manera heroica tres pasajeros del tren intentaron proteger a las mujeres, Christian sacó un cuchillo, los degolló y escapó en la parada Hollywood. Dos de los hombres murieron por las heridas sufridas, mientras que el tercero requirió cirugía por la gravedad de sus lesiones. Poco después, el atacante fue detenido por la policía y está acusado de homicidio agravado.

Christian es un fascista local bien conocido. Múltiples videos lo muestran amenazando a manifestantes durante el festival de odio en Montavilla Park en East Portland el 29 de abril. Ahora la misma organización con la que estaba entonces dice que pretende realizar una concentración provocadora en el centro de Portland a las 2 p.m. el domingo 4 de junio. Incluso están invitando a un violento provocador fascista tristemente célebre para hacer clara su amenaza.

A principios de la semana, antes del último ataque, activistas sindicales del área de Portland lanzaron un llamado urgente para una “Movilización para parar a los fascistas. ¡Su provocación racista es una amenaza para todos nosotros!” Los organizadores enfatizaron: “Fingen defender la libertad de expresión. ¡Mentira!…. El veneno racista que estos desgraciados escupen desemboca en linchamientos. Hay que pararlos”.

En los próximos días se dirá mucho acerca del estado mental aparentemente perturbado del asesino. Pero ¿qué era lo que lo motivaba para atacar a dos jóvenes mujeres, una negra y otra musulmana, al gritarles “¡Bájense del autobús y lárguense del país porque no pagan impuestos aquí!”? Se trata de un claro reflejo del racismo asesino que viene de Washington y que se intensifica en todo el país.

Hace un mes, la policía acompañó al fascista Christian alrededor del parque mientras hacía saludos nazis y amenazaba a los manifestantes. El Portland Mercury (27 de mayo) informa: “Unos cuantos oficiales de la policía presentes el 29 de abril parecían estar familiarizados con Christian, pero no se sintieron amenazados por él”. Al final de la marcha de los racistas, la ciudad les proveyó un autobús municipal para transportarlos de regreso.

La misma policía de Portland atacó la marcha anual del Primero de Mayo por los derechos de los inmigrantes con gas lacrimógeno y granadas aturdidoras, acusando a los “anarquistas” cuando fue la policía la que aterrorizaba a los manifestantes, entre los cuales arrestó a 25 personas. A pesar de la palabrería que sobre la “diversidad” y la “unidad” profieren el alcalde y los políticos de los partidos patronales, el hecho es que tanto ellos como su policía están protegiendo a los fascistas.

El área de Portland es bastión de un poderoso movimiento obrero construido sobre el principio de que “un golpe contra uno es un golpe contra todos”. Los fascistas son cuerpos de choque que buscan dividir, conquistar y derrotar a la clase obrera y destruir los derechos de todos nosotros. Para parar el letal terrorismo racista y fascista es necesario –ahora, no en un futuro indeterminado– movilizar el poder de la clase obrera.

Un día antes de los asesinatos de Portland, el ILWU, sindicato de los trabajadores portuarios, paró labores en Oakland, California, paralizando los muelles, para protestar en contra de unas horcas, que representan una amenaza de linchamiento, que aparecieron en una de las terminales más grandes. El Primero de Mayo de 2015, el Local 10 del ILWU paró el puerto y marchó hacia la alcaldía de Oakland para exigir el fin del terrorismo policíaco. Ese mismo día, sindicalistas del área de Portland marcharon tras una manta que decía: “Trabajadores contra los racistas asesinatos policíacos”.

Éste es el poder que debemos movilizar para parar a los fascistas en Portland. Hacemos un llamado a todos y cada uno a tomar partido y unirse a la movilización sindical/negra/inmigrante a las 12:30 p.m. el domingo, 4 de junio, en Terry Schrunk Plaza (SW Tercera Ave. y SW Madison) para impedir que los aspirantes a Hitler organicen más acciones de terror asesino. ¡Todos a la calle el 4 de junio! ¡Fuera fascistas de Portland!

Hideous Double Murder by Muslim-Hating Nazi: All Out on June 4!

en español aquí

Mobilize Labor: Fascists Out of Portland

It’s A Matter of Life and Death

Take a Stand: Come Out on June 4

Statement by Portland Labor Against the Fascists

Less than a month after a race-hate rally was held in East Portland, and nine days before they plan to stage a fascist provocation downtown, murderous racist terror has struck in Portland. The murderer was prominently present at the April 29 racist rally. Now two brave men who stood up to him are dead, and a third was seriously wounded. Muslims and Jews, African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, along with defenders of women’s, gay and lesbian rights: all are targeted by the murderous bigots. As we have emphasized: fascist rallies are a staging ground for hideous racist terror. It’s up to us, the working people, to stop the fascists now.

A mobilization of unionists and opponents of racist terror has been called for Sunday, June 4 to bring out labor’s power behind the call: Fascists Out of Portland!

On Friday afternoon, May 26, Jeremy Joseph Christian, a 35-year-old white man, began screaming racist insults and death threats at two young women he encountered on an MAX light rail train eastbound out of downtown Portland. One of the women is black and the other is a Muslim who was wearing a head scarf (hijab).

When three fellow passengers heroically sought to protect them, Christian drew a knife, slashed their throats, and escaped at the Hollywood transit stop. Two of the men died of their wounds, while a third required surgery for serious injuries. The attacker was taken into custody by police shortly after, and is charged with aggravated murder.

Christian is a well-known local fascist. Multiple videos show him menacing counter-demonstrators at a racist hate-fest in Montavilla Park in East Portland on April 29. Now the same outfit he was with then says it intends to stage a provocative rally in the center of downtown Portland at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 4. They’re even bringing in a notoriously violent fascist provocateur to make the threat clear.

Earlier this week, before the latest attack, Portland-area union activists issued an urgent call to “Mobilize to Stop the Fascists: Their Racist Provocation Is a Danger to Us All!” Organizers emphasized: “They pretend to defend ‘free speech.’ This is a lie… The poisonous race-hatred they spew out spawns lynchings. They must be stopped.

In the coming days much will be made of the killer’s apparently deranged mental state. But what possessed him to lash out against African American and Muslim young women, yelling “Get off the bus and get out of the country because you don’t pay taxes here”? This is clearly a reflection of the deadly racism coming out of Washington and escalating across the country.

A month ago, the police shepherded fascist Christian around the park as he gave Nazi salutes and threatened protesters. The Portland Mercury (27 May) reports: “A few Portland police officers on April 29 appeared to be familiar with Christian, but not threatened by him.” At the end of the racists’ march, the city provided a bus to take them back.

The same Portland police attacked the annual May Day immigrants’ rights march with tear gas and flash-bang grenades, blaming “anarchists” when it was the police who were terrorizing the marchers, arresting 25. Despite the talk of “diversity” and “unity” from the mayor and politicians of the bosses’ parties, the fact is they and their police are protecting the fascists.

The Portland area is home to a powerful labor movement built on the principle that “An injury to one is an injury to all.” The fascists are shock troops in the drive to divide, conquer and defeat the working class and destroy the rights of us all. To stop the deadly racist and fascist terror it is necessary – now, not at some indefinite future time – to mobilize the power of the working class.

The day before the Portland killings, ILWU longshoremen at the Port of Oakland, California walked off the job, paralyzing the docks to protest nooses, a threat of lynching, that were found at one of the largest terminals. On May Day 2015, ILWU Local 10 shut down the port and marched on Oakland city hall to demand an end to police terror. That same day Portland-area unionists marched behind a banner saying “Labor Against Racist Police Murder.”

This is the power we must bring out to stop the fascists in Portland. We urge one and all to take a stand and join the labor/black/immigrant mobilization at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 4 in Terry Schrunk Plaza (SW 3rd Ave. & SW Madison St.) to stop the would-be Hitlers from organizing more deadly terror. All out on June 4! Fascists out of Portland!

Labor, Immigrant Rights Defenders Say June 4: Fascists Out of Portland! Since the November election there has been huge rise in racist attacks. Immigrants, Muslims and Jews, African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, as well as defenders of women’s, gay and lesbian rights and others on the bigots’ hit list have been targeted. Many of these assaults have been spearheaded by fascist action groups including the Ku Klux Klan and “alt-right” white supremacist gangs. Earlier this month, several hundred of them staged a racist rally at a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, imitating the German Nazis’ parades with flaming torches. On June 10, fascists have announced ominous anti-Muslim actions in more than 20 cities around the country. Now some of these outfits are threatening to stage a racist provocation in downtown Portland on Sunday, June 4. They pretend to defend “free speech.” This is a lie. These racist bullies and killers seek to terrorize the population by going after the most vulnerable. When “Patriot Prayer” and others showed up in Portland on April 29, they were brandishing baseball bats and heavy sticks, wearing helmets and flaunting the Confederate battle flag of the slave owners and KKK night riders. Now “Based Stickman”, who gets his name from swinging his stick at people plans to make an appearance as well. The poisonous race-hatred they spew out spawns lynchings. They must be stopped. Fascists are the deadly enemies of the working class. They would smash the unions and pave the way for an unfettered corporate dictatorship. That is why Portland-area labor has resolved to use our power to stop them. Painters (IUPAT) Local 10, IATSE Local 28, Carpenters 1503, Laborers Local 483, AFT Local 3544 (graduate teaching fellows) as well as Carpenters NW Regional Council and AFT Oregon have passed resolutions declaring their readiness to “join with the broader labor and social justice community in mobilizing against the clear and present danger that the provocations of racist and fascist organizations pose to us all.” Now is the time to put these resolutions into action. Portland belongs to the working people of all races and nationalities. We have the numbers and the power to stop the racists and fascists in their tracks: we must act before it’s too late.

Wyatt McMinn for Vice President, IUPAT Local 10

en español aquí

Wyatt at work
Wyatt at work

I would like to announce my candidacy for Vice President of IUPAT LU 10. I currently serve as a delegate for DC5. I chair the Volunteer Activists Committee as well as the Contract Negotiation Sub-Committee, which was a key factor in helping get rid of binding arbitration in the painters’ master area agreement. I have had the privilege to serve on the Executive Board for two terms. In those two terms I wrote the language to help establish the Local 10 MASH Fund. I pushed to get the contracts translated into Spanish. I have also been a delegate to the Oregon AFL-CIO State Convention three times. In 2015, I brought a resolution to mobilize union power against “Right to Work” and fought for it on the floor of the convention. I have proudly represented Local 10 at labor events and actions including our union’s contingent in May Day for many years.

We as a union and as a whole labor movement are facing tough times ahead. We need a strategy for labor that will carry forward efforts to organize the unorganized, unite against the bosses across craft lines and against attempts to use racism and sexism to divide us, and break the chains that tie labor to the Democratic Party, as our local did when we voted to not support the Democrats, the Republicans, or any party of the bosses. As the Vice President of Local 10, I have carried forward with that strategy, both working to organize unorganized painters at Edwards Painting, and supporting unionization efforts at Burgerville.

This year on May Day, our slogan was “Defend Immigrants, Break with the Democrats and Republicans, For a Class Struggle Workers Party”. Our local has taken the lead in pushing to use the power of labor to defend immigrants, mobilize against fascists and white supremacists, and stand up to anti-worker legislation. It’s no secret that we are under broad attack – from the employers, the government and other reactionary forces – and we have to fight back. We have the power not just to resist these attacks, but defeat them on the way to bringing the workers to power.

 In Solidarity,

Brother Wyatt McMinn

Donald Trump has picked up the title of “deporter-in-chief” where Barack Obama left off and run with it, from his reprehensible “Muslim ban” to his disgusting plan to expand the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. An upsurge of nationalist rhetoric combined with an onslaught of deportations and anti-immigrant measures has been met with protests.

The way to fight the racist bans on refugees and shut down ICE raids is to mobilize the power of the working class. Workers have the power to shut down raids and prevent deportations by mobilizing mass demonstrations backed by strike action.

A “day without an immigrant” is the beginning of what it would take, but the attacks on immigrant workers are a threat to the rights of all of us: the multi-racial working class must use its power together, demanding full citizenship rights for all immigrants.
