Profs promote Antifa-esque video encouraging followers to ‘f**k sh*t up’

Feb 18, 2020 by

  • A New York University adjunct instructor and a University of Buffalo professor began a movement called “Decolonize This Place.”
  • The group’s Twitter feed recently featured a video with three masked individuals encouraging followers to “f**k sh*t up.”

Two university academics face questions about their alleged involvement in the Jan. 31 protests in the New York City subway system.

University of Buffalo professor Nitasha Dhillon and New York University adjunct instructor Amin Husain, co-founders of the leftist movement “Decolonize this Place,” featured video clips on the DTP Twitter feed, showing support for disruptive gatherings and refusing to pay fares on the nation’s largest public transit system.

“How will you and your crew build and f*ck sh*t up”   

Among the protesters’ demands was to effectively ban police officers from patrolling the New York City subway system, a public transit system arguably at the top of terrorists’ lists to strike as well as “free” subway rides. The group also demanded an end to “harassment” by police.

Decolonize This Place’s website describes the organization as “collectives that seek to resist, unsettle, and reclaim the city…we aim to cultivate a politics of autonomy, solidarity, mutual aid with a long-term, multi-generational horizon of decolonial, anti-capitalist, and feminist liberation…”

“For us, decolonization necessitates abolition. But what does abolition demand? Not only does it demand the abolition of prisons and police, bosses and borders, but as Fred Moten and Stefano Harney write, it’s “the abolition of a society that could have prisons, that could have slavery, that could have the wage, and therefore not abolition as the elimination of anything but abolition as the founding of a new society” the site explains.

On the group’s website they had posted an event encouraging the gathering on January 31st, 2020 as a “city-wide convergence” at Grand Central Station with phrases such as “fuck the police” used multiple times.

One tweet from the group shows a video of three masked individuals encouraging followers to “fuck shit up.”
