On September 12th, 13th, and 14th of 2014, South Side Chicago ARA will be hosting the 1st Annual Torch Network Conference. Torch is a North American antifascist Network that evolved out of the Anti-Racist Action network. This conference has 2 parts; A private portion reserved for vouched antifascist chapters within the network (get vouched in now!) and a public portion for any and all antifascists interested in either the network or simply meeting other antifascists and having a good time. There will be workshops, tables, and more.

If you have any questions or want to become a vouched chapter before the conference, email us a southsidechicagoara@hushmail.com

Donate to Prison Release Funds for Anti-Racist Political Prisoners Cece McDonald and John Tucker

Hey everyone, We would like to encourage all our readers to donate to one or both of these brave individuals who were imprisoned for taking a stand against Racism and Fascism.

Cece McDonald is a trans woman who was attacked in 2011, along with several friends, by a group of Transphobic Racists.  In the ensuing melee, one of the attackers was stabbed and killed.  Cece is scheduled to be released this month and her supporters are fundraising to give her some help when she get out. Click here to donate to Cece McDonald.

John Tucker is one of the Tinley Park 5, 5 Antifascists imprisoned on trumped-up charges stemming from a disruption of a meeting of representatives of several Neo-Nazi/White Power groups. John is also slated for release this month.  His supporters have also started a prison release fund.  Click here to donate to John Tucker.

Please give all you can to support these two Antifascists.
