Carpenters, Stagehands, Seattle Wobblies, Painters Prepare to Stop Fascists

Carpenters Local 1503, IATSE (Stagehands) Local 28, and the Seattle branch of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) have recently joined the preparations to stop fascist provocations by passing resolutions similar to the Portland Painters Local 10 anti-KKK mobilization resolution.

What is needed now is the preparatory organization of union-based defense groups, to form the core of mass mobilizations to deny the fascists the ability to agitate and recruit in multiracial urban strongholds of the working class.
