Fight Xenophobia

America's xenophobic/nativist settler parade continues.

In addition to requiring everyone in Arizona to carry identification, the fake interim Governor Jan Brewer signed a bill banning ethnic studies.
This ethnic studies ban is coded in the most insanely backwards way. These Whites in Arizona are convinced that they are a persecuted minority fighting for their racial survival/purity. The measure prohibits classes that "advocate ethnic solidarity, that are designed primarily for students of a particular race or that promote resentment toward a certain ethnic group".

State schools chief Tom Horne said he believes the Mexican-American studies program wrongfully teaches Latino students that they are oppressed by white people. Uh... I think THAT is pretty fuckin evident by the laws you keep passing!

So first AZ strips segments of Latinos of the right to vote, then subjects them to having to provide ID at the whim of racist cops, and now the state rewrites the history books by excluding their historical contributions in schools.
And this is hugely popular in the state!

These boycott calls for Arizona has the state very worried. Phoenix, which already has suffered convention cancellations because of Arizona's new immigration law, risks losing as much as $90 million in hotel and convention business over the next five years because of the controversy, according to city estimates.

This paranoia is reaching far beyond Arizona. Senators Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) and Scott Brown (R-MA), along with Congressmen Jason Altmire (D-PA) and Charlie Dent (R-PA) have introduced a Bill that would allow citizens to be stripped of citizenship before convicted of any crime. These steps are always taken under the guise of expelling evil foreign elements from the USA but they always affect all dissidents.

The Phoenix Class War Council provides the excellent example of Luigi Galleani and the anarchists of Barre.
