(A statement for the June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners)

First, I’d like to give warm revolutionary greetings to all those who have shown solidarity and supported me. Without that solidarity and support, I don’t know how I would have survived for so long.

Absolute Amorality vs. Relative Amorality

Nihilism is often associated with pessimism and apathy, a general form of indifference. Alejandro de Acosta (A de A) has deflated this 'purified negation' with content, provocatively suggesting that nihilism might also be associated with ethics, so long as one is free from the burden of obligation. That is, he articulates nihilism as "I might be ethical: some days I am; some days I am not." (The Impossible, Patience).

Most insane product of the week : smart shoes. Facebook follies - who does JZ's?
(not JZ). Political dis-integration? Paiutes vs. liberal "defender"? Huel (like Soylent);
Fast Food Aid in Tokyo (to junk food eaters). Horrors of pollution in India. Heat, emissions
rising sharply. Ad of the week (Cisco), resistance briefs. Utter irrelevance of new issue
of Anarchy magazine. Four calls.

Rojava: Democracy and Commune

From CrimethInc. blog

In the latest installment in our series exploring the anarchist critique of democracy, guest author Paul Z. Simons offers us a meditation on revolutionary forms of organization. Drawing on his experiences in Rojava in 2015, he contrasts conventional democratic practices with what he has seen of democratic confederalism and evaluates the federation of communes as a model for North American anarchists. At a time when the ruling order has been discredited but there are very few proposals for how else to shape our lives, Simons suggests some much-needed points of departure.

Account of May 1, 2016 in Paris: Anarchists defile libertarian procession

May 1, 2016. Like every Sunday there is the market at la Place des Fêtes. Like every May 1 it is the super-market of the libertarian organizations. Always the same routine, the same resigned faces, the same sad slogans, the same mythomaniac banners (“Kill Capitalism,” “Strikes, looting, sabotage”). This year some individuals decide to break this routine, and anarchism invites itself to the libertarian procession.

Wild Resistance, Insurgent Subsistence

From Black and Green Review

An interview with BC green anarchists on native resistance, building community and undermining civilization.

Fracking, tar sands, sour gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG) conversion stations and pipelines; in all cases, it would appear that our native friends up north have been trail blazing persistent resistance to the new wave of resource extraction and distribution. As they seem to typify it, it’s just the new face of colonization, but an old enemy.

I had the pleasure of speaking to non-native green anarchists from British Columbia who have been involved with and supporting these encampments and have been able to give us some more details about the encampments, the challenges that they expose for anarchists and as non-natives, the contexts of decolonization and effective forms of resistance, and, most importantly, the role of community and subsistence.
