A Weekly Correction: The Warsaw Uprising and Antifa

A Weekly Correction: The Warsaw Uprising and Antifa

"THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF NATION-STATES ARE NOT MORAL CRUSADES [...] THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF NATION-STATES IS TO CONSOLIDATE AND WIELD POWER." - VINCENT EMMANUELLE

On August 1st, 1944, the Polish underground resistance, also known as Home Army, led an armed insurrection in Warsaw against the Nazi occupation. In what would later come to be known as the Warsaw Uprising, the insurrection took place over a 63 day period and resulted in 15,000 insurgent and 150,000 civilian deaths. Despite being timed to coincide with the retreat of the German forces from Poland ahead of the Soviet advance (Blejwas 2004), the city eventually succumbed to Soviet rule.

This week we wished to compile articles, videos and podcasts not only about the Uprising, but those relating to resistance movements and fascism more generally (both throughout history and in modern day).
