ABOUT :::

On January 20, 2018, marking the one year anniversary of Trump's inauguration, Deep Dish TV and Paper Tiger will release We Interrupt this Program, a new video/web series about the global eco-economic-political crises and rise in far-right politics. A mixed bag of toxic themes have been exacerbated by the rise of Trump: white nationalist movements, far-right hate groups, anti-migrant rhetoric, Islamophobia, misogyny, normalization of sexual assault and sexual harassment, transphobia, climate change deniers, attacks on healthcare, and more. We will show the immediacy of these issues and urgent ways in which people are organizing against them and toward more autonomous, intersectional, and inclusive alternatives.

We Interrupt This Program of corporate media to bring you a special report from the organizers against white nationalism, neoliberalism, patriarchy, and colonialism.

We Interrupt This Program to show you...

- frontlines against fascism.
- the insidiousness nature of "border walls" and people on the other side.
- health autonomy and better ways of providing care.
- student debt serfdom, the issue of privatization, and alternative forms of education.
- housing beyond rent and property.
- struggles against systems of racial oppression such as police and prisons.
- how Big Brother uses tech to both surveil and pacify, and ways of protection.
- ways to counter toxic masculinity and patriarchy.
- how to fight militarism and imperialism, which are systems of global domination.
- climate change and mutual aid in catastrophe. 

We Interrupt This Program is produced by Deep Dish TV and Paper Tiger TV. Please contact us at info@weinterruptthisprogram.org if you have any questions or interest in the series.

ABOUT THE FILM:
Since the election of Donald Trump, acts of racist violence have proliferated across the United States. Racists and misogynists feel emboldened to express and act on their views. White nationalist groups and resurgent traditional white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan have used Trumps victory to gain new recruits. All that stands in their way are the groups of anarchists, communists, and socialists who have taken it upon themselves to prevent fascism from becoming a powerful political force in the United States. This film tells the story of what “Antifa" is and why people are using these tactics to confront racism and fascism in the US today.

Who are the anti-fascists? What motivates them to risk their lives to fight the far right? What is the history of militant anti-fascism and why is it relevant again today? How is anti-fascism connected to a larger political vision that can stop the rise of fascism and offer us visions of a future worth fighting for? Through interviews with anti-fascist organizers, historians, and political theorists in the US and Germany, we explore the broader meaning of this political moment while taking the viewer to the scene of street battles from Washington to Berkeley and Charlottesville.
