Cincinnati community marches to demand justice for Samuel Dubose
CINCINNATI - On Sunday July 26, a crowd of over 300 community members marched from the University of Cincinnati campus to the site of the fatal shooting death of 43-year old Samuel Dubose to demand the release of police body camera footage of the incident. Undeterred by a thunderstorm, demonstrators actions included spontaneously halting the march to drop to their knees with their hands in the air and "die ins," whereby the crowd laid limp in the street.
Dubose died after being shot in the head by campus officer Ray Tensing during a July 19 traffic stop for failure to display a front license plate. Dubose was unarmed. The ordinary penalty for the traffic violation is a $130.00 fine.
In an interview with the People's World, Dubose's younger sister Kimberly "Keshan" Thomas described Dubose as a "community man," "revolutionary," and "documentary enthusiast" who taught his children about the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Thomas said that Dubose was her best friend, mentor, and biggest fan, who had been encouraging Thomas to use her culinary training to realize her long-time goal of opening a vegan restaurant in the city. Thomas cooked Dubose his last meal before the two watched the documentary Slavery by Consent.
The event was largely organized by the family of Dubose and included remarks from his mother, father, sister, niece, and two of his minor children. Demonstrators chanted shout outs to cities such as Cleveland, Ferguson, and Baltimore, a sign of solidarity with the larger Black Lives Matter Movement which has taken hold in cities
At the site of Dubose's death, demonstrators laid white carnations at a memorial set up by neighborhood residents at the foot of a utility pole. After the family's remarks at the memorial site, the crowd proceeded to the headquarters of the University of Cincinnati's Department of Public Safety, where they chanted "Show us the tape!" a reference to the body camera being withheld by both campus police and county prosecutor Joe Deters.
Discrepancies between Tensing's 911 call reporting the shooting and his final incident report have aggregated community suspicion and amplified calls for release of the body camera footage.
Several media agencies have sued for release of the footage, arguing that it is a public record to which they are entitled under Ohio law. Deters has promised to release the footage upon the conclusion of his investigation. Deters hopes to conclude his investigation by Friday.

Pyongyang, July 27 (KCNA) -- All the service personnel and people of the DPRK significantly celebrated the 62nd anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War.
A lot of people visited the plaza of the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, the sacred temple of Juche, where President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il lie in state, to pay tribute to them before the portraits depicting their beaming images.
Service personnel, people from all walks of life and school youth and children visited the statues of the great leaders on Mansu Hill in Pyongyang and other parts of the country to lay floral baskets and bouquets and pay tribute to them.
Service personnel, working people and school youth and children visited the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum and the Jonsung Revolutionary Museum and went to the statues and cemeteries of martyrs, towers and graves of fallen soldiers of the Korean People's Army in different parts of the country to pay tribute to the victors of the great age.
Art performances were given to celebrate the v-day.
Colorful acrobatic pieces were put on the stage at the Pyongyang Circus Theater.
Art performances were given in Jagang, North Phyongan, North Hwanghae, Kangwon and South Hamgyong provinces. The performers highly praised the noble exploits of Kim Il Sung and the high spirit of the service personnel and people who turned out in the all-people resistance for defending the country.

Working people and school youth and children visited families of war veterans and honored disabled soldiers with bouquets, health foods, tonics and others to congratulate them on the holiday.

Looking at the Fort Chernyi WFE, I figured I'd comment on the "Anti-Marxism" they profess. First off, it's perfectly fine for a region to be exclusively anarchist; there are regions mainly just for Marxists as well. Primarily though, I think this is just a reflexive thing for their region so as to not have to ponder on why anarchists have joined in with us Marxists in condemning their old region, retaliatory strikes against their affiliated regions, and rebuffing any alliance or embassies with them.
Maybe some of this is just a misunderstanding of what Marxism is about. Of course, it must be mentioned first that there are whole groups of Marxists that are explicitly anti-state in all forms, such as autonomists. For orthodox Marxists and Leninists though, we don't support workers' states just for the hell of it. We define the state as a violent system of class rule. We believe class and the state are institutions that arose concurrently and are in a dialectical relationship. Simply overthrowing the formal state hasn't ever magically abolished classes, and therefor in Marxist terms hasn't truly succeeded in an authentic statelessness.
From this perspective, the revolution in Spain and the anarchist maneuvering in the chaos of Ukraine around the times of civil war in both cases would both constitute dictatorships of the proletariat or workers' states (there's strong arguments for Makhnovia constituting a state in any sense, but that's another discussion). Through their violent suppression of counter revolutionaries and non-worker classes they became a state in everything but name; that this was done "organically" or "voluntarily" (again, a contentious claim for Makhnovia) rather than from a top down order doesn't change anything. Many anarchists use this line of logic in arguments against "anarcho"-capitalists who claim private police wouldn't constitute a state, but these same anarchists don't apply it against the two most notable events in their own history.
More importantly, this rigid anti-Marxist sectarianism shows an ignorance of anarchism as well. From modern post-anarchists drawing from Frankfurt School Marxists and neo-Marxists, post-left anarchists working off the Situationists (a Marxist group), Maoist Third-Worldist groups using anarchist-like cell organization, to as far back as Proudhon's influence on Marx I mentioned before and Marx's critique of capital that's been nearly totally subsumed in anarchism, there is no way to totally remove Marxism from anarchism or vice versa at this point. There's clearly differences between the two, but the idea that a modern and coherent "anti-Marxist" anarchism can even be created is ridiculous and ahistorical.
To conclude this, I can only emphasize the need for more left unity. It's especially easy when your main connection to leftist politics is online to get disconnected from what really matters in the struggle against capitalism. Arguments about Kronstadt or whatever have their place, but letting this get in the way of building a strong anti-capitalist movement is something that can only be made from a position of privilege. People continue to suffer and die every single day directly resultant from capitalism; every day we spend our time in divisive bickering rather than working to change this is a day wasted (and that's definitely something we're all guilty of, myself included). Left unity is not just rhetoric; it is a real thing that you can see from Marxists in your local IWW branch to the Marxist-Leninist comrades who recently were attacked by ISIS while getting ready to help the revolution in nascent Kurdistan.
A lot of these anarchists seem to be anti-statist for the sake of being anti-statist, and forget that they're supposed to be in favour of establishing communism.
"Americans may be encouraged to vote, but not to participate more meaningfully in the political arena. Essentially the election is a method of marginalising the population. A huge propaganda campaign is mounted to get people to focus on these personalised quadrennial extravaganzas and to think, "Thatís politics." But it isnít. Itís only a small part of politics."

Oh, no, I misunderstood some stuff. AAA is becoming neutral so as a region it is still surrendering but Fort Chernryi is a militant splinter region. Dopes this mean there are still people to be crushed?
I think that depends on what they do in the future as Chernryi. If do the right thing, and only go after fascist & capitalist regions they'll have a clean slate (imo) and we can stay out of each others way. If they go after ANY leftist regions, we will crush them again.
