From Ithanarquista

On 28 September 2015, Michael Schmidt was suspended from the Institute for Anarchist Theory and History (IATH) / Instituto de Teoria e História Anarquista (ITHA), a multi-national research project in the Global South.[1] This followed shocking claims by US-based publisher, AK Press, that South African-based Michael Schmidt, a well-known writer on anarchism, was an “undercover fascist” and “white nationalist” seeking “to infiltrate the anarchist movement.” The serious charges demanded immediate action. Michael Schmidt was thereby completely excluded from IATH/ITHA decisions, internal processes and new publishing 18 months ago, pending investigations.

From Anarkismo

This time around, let’s fight for workers’ control from the start. Let’s create structures with checks and balances that ensure workers keep control. Let us not hand over power to a state that can institute tyranny all over again. We want anarchist communist organisation. Workers' delegation. Equable procedures. Bottom up organisation. It is 100 years since women workers began the 1917 revolution. Let’s do it again! The time for global revolution is here!

Anarchist Social Movements Do Not Exist

From Ding Politik

If I were to write a book about post-anarchist social movements it would be titled: “anarchist social movements do not exist.” This argument occurred to me during a conversation with a friend this afternoon. His claim, which is not at all an unfamiliar one for anarchist scholars, was that anarchist social movements do not follow the logic of the new social movement paradigm (e.g., a demand for recognition). I remembered Richard Day’s influential claim that anarchist social movements are not what sociologists would describe as social movements at all. Instead, he referred to them as the ‘newest social movements,’ and outlined their alternative logic.

From Kurdish Question

We met and interviewed a person who travelled to Rojava to be a volunteer in the Peoples’ Protection Units (YPG). We present this interview anonymously, as wished by the person interviewed.

What inspired you to travel to Rojava and join the YPG?

Different aspects, but it connected me and others to our own historical roots such as antifascism, or revolutionary internationalism.

Were you in the International Batallion?
