"Holding each other accountable also means getting used to letting each other know- in a comradely…"

“Holding each other accountable also means getting used to letting each other know- in a comradely way- when commitments and obligations aren’t being fulfilled. This is a practice that must be built through an organizational culture where comradely honesty and constructive criticism replaces competitive and individualistic passive-aggressiveness or talking behind people’s backs. The flip side of giving comradely feedback is learning how to receive it, using it to help you and your organization grow and becoming more self-disciplined. This is difficult sometimes since the vast majority of the times we’re being called to task for something, it is coming from top-down relations; but the practice of holding others accountable and being held accountable is fundamental to learn, practice and promote if we want to destroy and replace these top-down relations with horizontal and egalitarian relations. … Without self-discipline and horizontal accountability, groups revert back to dominating and oppressive top-down relations and/or involve stagnation, demoralization and ineffectiveness.

Capitalism, the state, imperialism, racism, patriarchy, and all forms of exploitation, domination and oppression aren’t going to go away without a fight and without something to replace it. Creating the organizational structure, practice and culture that encourages and takes seriously comradely horizontal accountability, self-discipline and bottom-up mandated delegation is fundamental to the effectiveness of our organizations in building towards and prefiguring the type of society we want to replace the current one. Whether, when and how we implement, develop, encourage and promote these concepts and practices is the responsibility of us all…”

"Nonviolence declares that the American Indians could have fought off Columbus, George Washington,…"

“Nonviolence declares that the American Indians could have fought off Columbus, George Washington, and all the other genocidal butchers with sit-ins; that Crazy Horse, by using violent resistance, became part of the cycle of violence, and “as bad as” Custer. Nonviolence declares that Africans could have stopped the slave trade with hunger strikes and petitions, and that those who mutinied were as bad as their captors; that mutiny, a form of violence, led to more violence, and thus, resistance led to more enslavement. Nonviolence refuses to recognize that it can only work for privileged people, who have a status protected by violence, as the perpetrators and beneficiaries of a violent hierarchy.”

-Peter Gelderloos, Why Nonviolence Protects the State- Nonviolence is Racist  (via rosadefuego)

Very good point- while I’m honestly too terrified and easily upset to even civilly disobey at this point (I’m working on it), and really don’t plan on ever using violent tactics, I have the privilege to do so and am really in no place to demonize those who choose otherwise for their own, equally valid (if not more so) reasons.

word, and this isn’t to say that you HAVE to use violence. I believe that there are certain people we are perfect, down and ready to utilize it as a tactic. I just personally think that if people decide to use it, to support them and not denounce them like so many pacifistic folks do. A diversity of tactics is important to any movement and so if you yourself can not participate in violent/militant tactics, find ways in which you can nonviolently support those whom are using those tactics. It’s by supporting the range of tactics being used that we can build a strong momentum and get some real change going and not just reform or crumbs from cookies being passed down to pacify the masses.
