National Poop Month

June 2014 is National Poop Month, a call to communities everywhere to expose and resist the ways powerful NGO’s have installed themselves as leaders of our movements, while co-opting and selling us out. These organizations are not in the business of challenging the status quo. They are not invested in systemic and radical social change. Instead, they work to prevent communities from self-organizing beyond the logic of corporate patronage and electoral politics. They co-opt and police emancipatory movements, undermining the collective potential for political expression, kettling our bodies and the social imagination.

MDC and No Name Collective launch a Call for a Different Kind of Solidarity ! In supporting friends and loved ones facing deportation, allies and advocates often reproduce the distinction of “worthy” and “non-worthy” immigrant imposed by the state. Our resistance must refuse the narrative of the few exceptional cases and must stand with all those labeled “illegal”, or “criminal” or “deportable”.
