SOLIDARITY AND STRUGGLE
For those who struggle, solidarity is not an empty concept, distant from our offensive capacity and the conflicts that develop in the struggle itself.
For those who struggle, solidarity is not an “issue” that emerges only at particular repressive “moments”, because repression […]
