Relationship to marginalized people:
The piece brings together new bedfellows. Fifth Column was an early feminist LGBTQ rights group from Canada. The term Fifth Column is military in nature, and refers to a splinter or insurgent group that is hidden within a large group and which has the intent to overthrow the larger group. Lettow-Vorbeck was a German military General who served in Africa in WWI. When Hitler came around looking to recruit officers to serve under him in WWII, Vorbeck famously (and literally) told him to go and fuck himself.
