Michael Harrison, a man in distress using a kitchen knife to wound himself, was shot multiple times by Portland Police officers on Sunday night. It has consistently been the response of the Portland Police Bureau and police worldwide to harass, wound, and murder people experiencing mental health issues. Everywhere we turn cops are killing people of color, the poor, those dealing with mental heath crisis and others marginalized in society. The message is clear that in order to serve the few the many are completely expendable.

Fight Back Podcast speaks with Jesse Cohn, author of Underground Passages: Anarchist Resistance Culture, about his new book.
“What anarchists demanded from art was what they demanded from all aspects of their political lives: that it should, as much as possible, embody the principle in the practice, the end in the means.

On Friday May 15 we torched a police car parked in front of the Hostivařská street police station in Prague. This was the result of an act of sabotage carried out by M.A.P. We decided to transform our anger into direct attack and took action as part of the Network of Revolutionary Cells.

From Konbini - by DJ Pangburn
Since time immemorial, anarchism has had a PR problem. Its many ideological strands have never truly controlled their respective images and terms of debate in the public consciousness. Instead, for over a century this ground has been ceded to politicians, mainstream media and big business, who have separately and collectively framed anarchism as — to borrow the term once leveled against Throbbing Gristle — “wreckers of civilization”.

From New University - by Megan Cole
The skies of Santa Ana were frigid and gray last Saturday, but the only storm in sight was brewing under the roof of El Centro Cultural de Mexico. Here, dozens of vendors, volunteers and community activists gathered for Orange County’s First Anarchist Bookfair.

Comrades, we hereby inform you all that as of 00:00 hours from today, May 18, 2015 that we the subversives who inhabit the high security prison have joined Juan Flores, Guillermo Duran and Nataly Casanova in their hunger strike struggle.
We do so with a deep sense of anti-prison solidarity and we make the same demands as our comrades who have already completed 34 days of hunger strike. These demands are:
- The immediate release of Enrique Alfonso Guzmán Amadeo considering the ridiculous accusations and the delusional evidence that has been presented by the prosecutors.

Some time has already passed since the web-scandal surrounding Petar Stanchev's unfortunate article, “Mr. Anarchist, we need to have a chat about colonialism”. All the better. We need cool heads to examine the underlying questions of international solidarity. Through the course of this article, I wish to tackle the problem on the basis of actual experiences of international solidarity, both personal and collective, referring to revolutions past and to relatively successful efforts of international anarchist solidarity with the Mapuche struggle.
