What Do We Mean By Solidarity?

THE CONCEPT of solidarity is based on the idea that people can unite across their differences not just because they are good people (or "allies"), but because they have a common interest in not allowing themselves to be divided and conquered. Thus, we must fight against Racism, Sexism, Transphobia, Islamophobia, Xenophobia, Imperialism, etc. Not just because its our moral duty, but because it is in our common interest to fight against all kinds of oppression
