Jacobin, Haymarket Books and Verso Books publishes free ebook on how to build a resistance in the Trump era

I love books, I love collecting books, and I love free books. And although I’m quite familiar with the issues discussed in “The Anti-Inauguration: Building Resistance in the Trump Era”, I think that if you love books on resistance like me, you just might want to download this ebook… for free! A collection of speeches made during the Anti-Inauguration event that took place in Washington DC on 20 January 2017, this book is a good companion for those who are wondering what their resistance against white supremacist capitalist patriarchy should look like following the election of Donald Trump.

For the most part, the book discusses issues that speak best to people living in the United States, but as the headache of the Trump election is being felt all around the world, it is a worthy read even for those of us who do not live there. The book provides many insights on the nuances of US politics and policies that the Trump Administration adheres to, things that those of us who do not live in the US might not be able to holistically understand through mainstream media.

This should go without saying, but just so that it is clear, the book does not suggest building a resistance from scratch. The United States has a long history of resistance. The book rather suggests what the politics around an anti-Trump resistance–a resistance that hopefully unites various movements already existing in the United States (and beyond)–should look like.

The authors of the speeches in this book are Naomi Klein, Jeremy Scahill, Owen Jones, and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor.
