Rolling Thunder #10 Is Finally Available
<table><tr><td>From <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2012/08/27/rolling-thunder-10-is-finally-...
At long last, <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/rt"><em>Rolling Thunder</em> #10</a> is back from the printers! The past two years have been a real roller coaster, so this one is packed.</p>
<p>We begin the issue with a reappraisal of the anarchist project in today’s context of crisis and technological transformation. From there, we chart the global trajectory of momentum: the student movements in the <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2010/03/09/march-4-anarchists-in-the-stud... and <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2011/01/26/the-uk-student-movement/">UK</a>—the insurrections in Tunisia, <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2011/02/02/egypt-today-tomorrow-the-world..., and beyond—the occupation movements in <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/texts/recentfeatures/barc.php">Spain</a>, Greece, and finally the USA, from its awkward beginnings in <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2011/03/10/spread-the-chaos-from-capitol-... to its aftereffects in <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2012/05/10/may-day-a-strike-is-a-blow/">O.... For case studies, we focus in on the anti-police struggles that catalyzed the rise of confrontational anarchism in Seattle, and scrutinize how US immigration policy is applied on the ground at the border to explain how its actual objectives differ from its ostensible purpose. The issue concludes with a historical review of Canadian anarchism, following it from its origins through the <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/blog/2010/02/15/riot-2010/">Olympics</a> and <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/texts/recentfeatures/toronto2.php">G20</a> riots of 2010 and up to the present day.</p>
<p><em>Rolling Thunder</em> #10 also features a graphic history from Argentine anarchism—24 pages in full color—and all the other bells and whistles you’ve come to expect from us times two. It was a long time coming, but the extra attention has only improved the final result.</p></td><td><img title="Sometimes when other orbital platforms come into range, I just shoot at them... and laugh" src="http://anarchistnews.org/files/pictures/2008/whothepolicebeat.jpg"></td>...

<p>This issue is funded in part by a <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/texts/atoz/prizes.php">legal settlement</a>, the legacy of an earlier cycle of struggle. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to those who helped us get it published despite the usual host of challenges. Thank you for your faith in us. Everything you entrust we will return twofold to the struggle.</p>

We won’t mince words, this issue of <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/rt"><em>Rolling Thunder</em></a> is very, <em>very</em> late. All we can offer is our sincere apology, and an assurance that it was not due to negligence—in the past year we’ve had both a death and a birth here at Far East HQ as well as truly dark times in our personal lives, and our operation, already pushed to the limits of human capacity, suffered greatly. While we’ve managed to keep on top of mailorder and the website, other projects like <em>Rolling Thunder</em>, <a href="http://www.crimethinc.com/books/rfd-out.html">the <em>Recipes for Disaster</em> redesign and reprint</a>, and others yet to be revealed, have suffered setbacks and delays. Throughout it all, y’all have been very patient and understanding, and for that you have our true gratitude—it made a trying situation more bearable. Thank you.</p>
<p>We’ve struggled to find an equilibrium and while not there yet, the thread is in our grasp. We’re beginning to catch up and we can promise an action-packed last third of 2012 beginning now. To begin, we are releasing <em>Rolling Thunder</em> #10 today, which you can read about above. As a token of appreciation and thanks to all of those who subscribed to <em>Rolling Thunder</em>, we are sending this issue <strong>free</strong> to all current subscribers; in other words, if you subscribed to <em>Rolling Thunder</em> before today, your <em>four</em> issue subscription has just turned into a <em>five</em> issue subscription. It’s the least we could do to reward you for your support in light of the delay.</p>
