Пишет Misha Verbitsky ([info]tiphareth)
the space had
been opened as "The Holdout" by (mostly white) anarchists
and vaguely radical DIY people in 2011. this entailed a
hefty amount of voluntary labor and donated/liberated
material to make the long-abandoned unit usable as a
community gathering space (computers, a library/bookstore,
a bicycle repair/rebuilding shop, a screen printing work
shop, clothing exchange, sort of a food bank, as well as
offering ongoing and one-off educational events). once it
became clear that the space was stable and more or less
self-sustaining, the identity politicians started moving
in. as befits most sub-marxist cooptions, this process was
gradual. more self-identified People of Color started
hanging out and on occasion participating in
meetings. after the definitive suppression of Occupy
Oakland and during the generalized demoralization that
came in its wake, the first generation of folks who'd
built The Holdout were exhausted, both physically and
emotionally. the scene was set for the quasi-maoists to
make their first move. they rushed a meeting of the
organizers' collective and announced that The Holdout was
white supremacist since there was a white majority in the
collective. white anti-racist ally paralysis ensued, and
within a few weeks, at least half of the people who'd
volunteered their labor and political energy from the
beginning walked away. the influx of the identity
politicians created the necessary mass to change the name
and to restructure the collective into something more
along the lines of democratic centralism, where People of
Color were allotted more influence.
