Re:Christchurch I am really sickened today.

Submitted by bryl in Antifa

After learning about the shooting yesterday in NZ I am really fucking sickened today. My heart literally hurts and I physically shudder at the thought of it. I don't even know what to make of it. Just a mix of anger, fear, despair and I'm wondering if this world is fucking worth it.

But I know it is. And I know this isn't the time to cower and cry. And I know there are good people out there fighting for love and not hate. I have to believe that there are.

Sorry for the venting. I'm not that articulate right now. I'm just so overwhelmed by this I have to vent a little. I don't want to let it beat me. I know I'm not the only one feeling this way. So I'm saying this as much for me as for you: don't give up on the good fight.

Okay, I guess that is all. Back to work. Thanks for listening.

♡ will always win because those who live in hate are already dead and haven't realized it yet. The dead can't fight, they can only decay further.

Another day in hellworld. Had to drive 20 miles to university today just to listen to 2 hours of economics from someone who could host a prageru video and saw some guys praising the terrorist for having good memes. I know you shouldn't give up but I don't do anything positive anyways. Hope I can neck myself soon.

Yeah, I always thought of NZ as somewhere away from "regular" politics. This attack was really unexpected, compared to other countries.

Added to that the fact that the guy live-streamed the killing, has written a manifesto, and was methodic in his execution is chilling.

It feels surreal.

They might won this one, but they can never defeat your resilience. As long as you keep going, they will never win.

Are there any large communities for anti-racist and anti-fascist people though? It feels like on the internet for the most part there's either neo-Nazis, everyday anti-immigrant type of racists, and those that don't care enough to criticize them.
