On December 10, 2017, Popular Resistance is beginning a new phase.
As we count down to that date, we are featuring some of the people behind Popular Resistance.
“Popular Resistance is a media outlet that attempts to make sense of political struggles being waged across the world against capitalist exploitation and inequality.”
-Mani Martinez, Cosecha Movement
Mani Martinez, is committed to anti-racist fight back. As an immigrant, he fundamentally understands that incarceration and deportation, gentrification and forced migration, racism and nationalism are two sides of the same token. They are all ways through which the uneven development promoted by capitalism divides the working class. He was part of a multi-racial generation of workers, students, and soldiers that became deeply involved in political struggle as a result of the murder of Michael Brown, a black teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014. Currently, Mani is organizing with the Cosecha Movement to fight for permanent protection, dignity, and respect for the 11 million undocumented workers in the U.S. today.
He is part of the team of people that keep Popular Resistance running on a daily basis.
“Because I am involved in putting up a great deal of the articles that are on Popular Resistance, my scope of political issues has been incredibly broadened.
“Corporate art, culture, and media outlets rely on segregating the information that people receive in their respective corners of the world. That maintains the necessary division amongst the working class, without which the capitalist class can’t rule.
“Our platform at Popular Resistance, therefore makes a great attempt at promoting working class unity by highlighting the importance of all political struggle against capitalism.”
People could be fighting corrupt regimes in different parts of the world, preventing pipelines from being built, exposing the contradictions of electoral politics, building digital campaigns to safeguard net neutrality, share political analysis about capitalism…through Popular Resistance.
Popular Resistance is attempting to demonstrate to our audience that no matter the struggle we face the same enemy, therefore it is the same fight.
We want to inspire confidence among working people for their struggles and promote the growth of social movements that address the needs of all people.”
