Antifascist Theory and Practice: A Double Book Launch for Three Way Fight and Genealogies of Antifascism

June 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

An evening of discussion with Xtn Alexander, D.Z. Shaw, and Rob Luzecky.

Three Way Fight: Revolutionary Politics and Antifascism, edited by Xtn Alexander and Matthew N. Lyons, brings together more than thirty essays, position statements, and interviews from the Three Way Fight website and elsewhere, spanning from the antifascist struggles of the 1980s and 1990s to the political upheavals of the twenty-first century.

Three way fight politics argue that the far right grows out of an oppressive capitalist order but is also in conflict with it in real ways, and that radicals need to combat both. The three way fight approach says we need sharper analysis of far-right movements so we can fight them more effectively, and we also need to track ongoing developments within the ruling class, including liberal or centrist efforts to co-opt antifascism as a tool of state repression and system legitimation.

Aimed at a politically committed activist audience, D.Z. Shaw’s Genealogies of Antifascism: Militancy, Critique, and the Three Way Fight provides a snapshot of this evolving philosophy of antifascism that grapples with the theoretical and practical challenges presented both by recent events and by the historical foundations of North America‚Äôs settler societies.

Learning from the past to build a revolutionary antifascism for the present and future!
