The Northeastern Federation of Anarcho-Communists joins
our comrades in Anti-Racist Action in remembering Jordan
Matthew Feder, anti-authoritarian, anti-fascist, medic, and friend.
Jordan died from meningitis after protesting the Free Trade
Area of the Americas in Miami, Florida and helping de-contaminate the
many victims of police chemical weapons at the protests.
In rememberance, we’re publishing a tribute from New Jersey Anti-Racist
Action as we add Jordan’s name to our list of comrades gone, but not forgotten.
Jordan Matthew Feder – PRESENTE!

The Casino Story – by Jordan’s cousin Todd

When I first heard of Jordan’s passing, like all of you, I was extremely upset. I tried to make sense of the situation. Why someone so young, so passionate, and so selfless? I was fortunate enough to spend a week in the Bahamas with Jordan this past summer. It was there that we bonded and were given the opportunity to get to know each other like never before. It was there that Jordan introduced me to the game of “craps.” I learned the “Jordan method” of gambling and spent hours upon days laughing, winning and indefinitely losing with my cousin.

Miami: A Dangerous Victory

By Starhawk

For those of us who participated in the protests against the FTAA, the Free Trade Area of the Americas, in Miami the third week in November, it?s a bit hard to feel victorious. We are bruised, battered, worried about companeros still in jail, and grieving for the Jordan Feder, a young medic who died of meningitis after the action. We?ve been harassed, arrested, tear gassed, pepper sprayed, hit, beaten, assaulted, lied about, and in some cases literally tortured and sexually assaulted in jail, and we?ve stared directly into the naked red gaze of the New American Fascism.

FTAA BEACHES IN MIAMI AS POLICE VIOLENCE ERUPTS

Investigations Demanded on Police Actions

by Orin Langelle/Global Justice Ecology Project

The Ministerial Summit on the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) ended Nov. 20, a day early, with a watered-down version of the proposed trade pact, as police clashed with protesters in Miami’s streets. As trade ministers from 34 countries discussed a neoliberal trade agreement that would stretch from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, police used tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets and electronic tasers to attack the FTAA opponents. Many protesters and bystanders were injured. Continue reading “FTAA BEACHES IN MIAMI AS POLICE VIOLENCE ERUPTS”
