-APOC MKE
All attendees of the summit held in Milwaukee, WI must adhere to and respect the Revolutionary Principles of Unity.
*Revolutionary Principles of Unity*


1. We call for a social revolution to erect an entire new society.


2. We want decent housing, food, clothing and other essentials for all, not just the rich.


3. We oppose all forms of colonialism and imperialism in the Third and
Fourth Worlds and support the struggles of all oppressed peoples in the West.


4. We oppose nation-state wars and the building of a fascist police state
based on hysteria over “terrorism.”


5. We oppose any form of white supremacy, white cultural chauvinism,
whiteness or internalized racism in the Anarchist movement, and call for
unity and recognition of our right to autonomy.


6. We strive and fight to dismantle, deconstruct and unlearn (in no
particular order but all at once) white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism,
heterosexism, speciesism, transphobia, queerphobia, environmental racism,
ageism, classism, authoritarianism, the State and all forms of oppression.


7. We oppose the oppression of wimmin/women, queers, transfolk, two spirit
people, youth, genderqueers, differently able-bodied people, people with
mental health complexities, animals and all that are oppressed.


8. We oppose any forms of capitalism and class oppression and support the
liberation of the poor and the workers.


9. We call for an immediate moratorium of the death penalty and the
dismantling of the prison industrial complex.


10. We demand an immediate end to all violence against all wimmin/women
(sexual, domestic or otherwise). We fully support survivors’ (of sexual
assault and rape) autonomy. We demand all perpetrators adhere and cooperate
to the fullest extent the procedures and demands of the survivors and the
communities.

Hello =)

I'm a newbie...

I'm Filipino-Hawaiian-Puerto Rican, originally from Hawaii, currently living in Las Vegas.   I love to write and I want to make new friends =)  I know how to speak very basic Hawaiian, but I don't know how to speak my other ethnic languages(tagalog and spanish).

I'm hoping to make friends here in mixedasians. I'm looking forward to reading the journal entries.

05:13 pm - Legacy to Liberation
Legacy to Liberation: Politics & Culture of Revolutionary Asian/Pacific America Legacy to Liberation: Politics & Culture of Revolutionary Asian/Pacific America by Fred Ho


My rating: 3 of 5 stars
From activism to the arts, this reader was a great run down of Asians in AmeriKKKa during the 1960s and '70s, and some of what these activists and artists did afterwards.

03:11 pm - What up!
Hey hey :]

My mixed heritage? I'm half Chinese, my dad, and half Lao, my mom. And I am proud of it. I can't speak Chinese, although I can recognize words and get maybe the gist of what is being said. I can speak Lao, but it's become broken through the years because I don't speak it as often. My mom rather speak English and perfect it more, and usually starts spitting out the Lao if I've done something wrong... ha.

I just joined LJ -- I always used xanga beforehand, but I wanted to try something new, so I'm looking for new friends! :]

And here's a question.

Has anybody ever heard about the Hapa Project by Kip Fulbeck? It really pertains to this group because it's a project that focuses on people that are part Asian or have Asian/Pacific Islander ancestry. It's a really cool project, and has sparked my interest. Maybe look into it? :D

Anyway. Say hi!! :D
