QueerUP Boston Prevents Zionist, Islamophobic Bigot Michael Lucas from Speaking at Northeastern University

Amid clashes at Northeastern University around the suspension of the SJP and the censorship by the university administration surrounding any pro-Palestinian speech, a collective group of trans and queer Bostonians and allies walked out of a film screening of gay porn star and director, pinkwasher and bigot Michael Lucas’ “Undressing Israel.” The event, sponsored by NU Pride, the undergraduate LGBTQ organization at Northeastern and Huskies for Israel, a campus Zionist organization, had a small turnout, made much smaller when members of QueerUP walked out chanting, and handing out informational fliers.

In the wake of the event, it came to light that NU Pride had withdrawn its sponsorship of Lucas and the event, and that Huskies for Israel asked Lucas not to come to the event shortly before it took place. This is a small but important victory for QueerUP and Palestinian solidarity activism in Boston, and at Northeastern University.

Kharkov, Ukraine: Anti-fascists mourn victims of neo-Nazi attack, March 23, 2014. 

On March 23, activists of “Borotba” (Struggle), together with the association “People’s  Unity” in Kharkov, held a rally and march in memory of the anti-fascist comrades who died on the night of March 14-15 at the hands of armed ultra-nationalists. 

On that day, anti-fascists recognized and followed members of the neo-Nazi gang “Right Sector” who had fired upon mass anti-government demonstrations that took place in Kharkov on March 8. When they arrived outside the fascists’ hiding place, the Right Sector opened fire. As a result two defenders of Kharkov were killed on the spot. 

Participants in the rally tied black ribbons on flags in remembrance of the dead activists and observed a minute of silence. 

People came into Rymarska street to remember those who gave their lives to protect the civilian movement 10 days ago. 

Activists marched through the main streets of Kharkov, chanting “Fascists kill, power covers up”, “Remember forever”, “Kharkiv, stand up!” and requiring local authorities to ensure democratic freedoms and the right to local self-government. 

The blood of the Kharkov defenders is on the hands of the Kiev junta, which legalized the neo-Nazi gangs, armed them and sent to the South-Eastern regions, giving them their full support.
