Organize yourself, find the nearest collective, union, party, etc

Hello, I'm your friendly communist activist reminding you that in one year of constant conflict, the authorities haven't killed anybody at Hong Kong, while 17 people have been killed on US. The National Guard was almost immediatly activate and sent to 24 states.

"If the U.S. is a 'battlespace,' then the protesters are the enemy. Trump’s threat to send in the troops is accompanied by a fascist message: You are the enemy. You have no right to free speech. You must be disciplined."
