Holy s&*t, 2017 was f*#$ed up. From the continuing onslaught of the Trump Agenda to the rise of the fascists, 2017 revealed the truly rotten core of the system we’ve been fighting for years. Our enemy is visible — and the task is huge.
In 2017, we saw people rising to combat hate. Our movements continued to hold those in power accountable. We shut down airports, fought oil and gas companies, protested police abuse of Black and Brown bodies. Our people fought fascists from California to Appalachia, and threw down in DC when one was inaugurated as president.
We know that we need to be more prepared in 2018. Will you help support our continued work with a donation?
In 2018, our movements need to be strong and nimble. The climate is changing, both literally and metaphorically, and the future is a bit murky. We know we need to build a long term radical movement that is able to take on oppressive powers — a movement built from the bottom up, from the grassroots, in the communities that are on the frontlines of struggle.
In 2017, Rising Tide supported grassroots and frontline meeting spaces, anti-fracking communities, the J20 defendants, prison abolitionists, and so many more. We couldn’t do any of this without you. In 2018, we will continue to support our frontline fighters and to build movement infrastructure that can sustain us for the long haul.
Donate what you can — $15, $50 or even $500 — to support direct action and movement building in 2018. Any amount you contribute will go to supporting the work of Rising Tide North America.
With hope for a courageous, bold, rebellious (and less f!#$ed up) 2018,
Rising Tide North America
