For months we’ve been the target of a campaign that alleges our funding comes from “dark money”

A few years ago we met Roy Singham, a Marxist comrade who sold his company & donated most of his wealth to non-profits that focus on political education, culture & internationalism.
It seems to bother some folk that we receive funding that furthers our anti-imperialist politics. It seems to bother them even more that our funder is also a staunch anti-imperialist whose work goes back to the Black Panthers & the LRBW in Detroit.…
The folks who make allegations against us are steeped in the worst kind of racism, believing somehow that our funding robs us of agency & self-determination.

Roy follows in the footsteps of his father Archie, a committed activist for National Liberation…
Ultimately our solidarity with the peoples & countries at the epicenter of the struggle against US Imperialism will not be moved by the racist allegations made by people who loudly echo State Dept and Pentagon discourse

🧵COVID in 2022: How has the US government failed?

1/ The maintenance of the decaying capitalist system is prioritized over human lives. Image
2/ The U.S. will go to any length to protect the functioning of the economy and continue to seek profits. Image
3/ Austerity politics means that COVID-testing has been largely taken over by private companies instead of a coordinated mass testing effort. Meaning some people have been charged up to $850 for a single test and as Omicron spiked, some have had to wait weeks for their results. Image
