Why Fight Back?

Links to different websites, videos, texts, and books that explain why people are fighting against capitalism and against the State, why it makes sense to riot or form a Black Bloc, why pacifism doesn’t work, and more.

Queer Ultraviolence, a book about Bash Back! and queer self-defense and revenge against capitalism and the patriarchy.

How Nonviolence Protects the State, pdf of a book that dismantles the myths of pacifism, shows how it has never actually succeeded in creating a revolutionary change in society, how nonviolence is patriarchal, how pacifists have manipulated the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi and are often working for state interests.
