This week's episode features three, that's right, three whopping conversations. Firstly, we hear from Luke O'Donovan about his case. Luke is an Anarchist in the Atlanta area who defended himself against a queer bashing last New Years at a party. Luke suffered multiple wounds inflicted by knives as well as beating which sent him to the hospital. He's facing 5 charges of aggrivated assault with a deadly weapon for injuring the people attacking him, who'd earlier called him a faggot repeatedly. Each of those 5 charges could carry a twenty year sentence.

Leadership comes in two very different flavours and in remembering/celebrating Nelson Mandela, it would be doing him and ourselves a disservice to NOT distinguish the type of leader that he was.
Common leadership is ‘one-to-many’ in the sense that the leader is a director of the collective. It is ‘reason-driven leadership’ that animates a collective with a reason-based vision, mission, and objectives and a rational plan for achieving an end goal.

The Plan Nord/Le Nord Pour Tous is a plan by the Quebec Government to invest in and promote resource extraction projects in Northern Quebec. Le Plan Nord was originally proposed by Jean Charest's Liberal government in May 2011, and was presented as an economic development strategy to create job in quebec. When the Parti Quebecois replaced the Liberals in 2012, Le Plan Nord was simply slightly modified and re-named Le Nord Pour Tous.

In the early morning hours, paint bombs sailed into a camera tower protecting the gentrification condos on 36th and Adeline St. in Oakland, CA. Pink paint splattered onto the instruments of surveillance, and the bandits left a cryptic tag before disappearing into the night.

Since going live in 2009 with around 400 texts from different anarchist thinkers and their friends, the library of today now contains over 2,150 different titles. Recently, we have moved to a new server and updated some other aspects of the website. The Jabber chat server has closed and we have moved back to Internet Relay Chat (IRC). You can occasionally find us working over on the Freenode servers by pointing your preferred IRC client to:

The night before last night we attacked the electronic communication net in Berlin (Germany). Our act of sabotage took place at a Vodafone radio tower and is meant as a symbol against total surveillance by governments, secret services and transnational corporations. Vodafone was chosen because it is eagerly engaged in cooperating with the british secret service GCHQ. GCHQ cooperates with the american secret service NSA. And NSA in turn cooperates with german secret service BND. Secret services collect patterns of normality and compare particular behaviours in order to find out if you could plan something deviant before you know it yourself. The collaborations of secret service industry and the industry’s secret services secure the conditions of profit and power for both of them.

Before I start describing the incident, I would like to mention the reasons why I haven’t initiated any formal complaint or lawsuit. First off, I declare myself an anarchist-antiauthoritarian. Therefore, my conscience cannot be misled by legal proceedings. Freedom combatants should draw the battle lines against the system and its “privileges” offered to us. In the following account of the incident (which occurred two days before the anniversary of the murder of comrade Alexis Grigoropoulos, in 2008), I want to make it clear that I do not consider myself a victim of the described attack, because the battle lines are drawn, and we stand against the enemy, as I already mentioned.
