Social geography is the study of how landscape, climate, and other features of a place shape the livelihoods, values, and cultural traditions of its inhabitants (and vice versa). Frenchman Elisée Reclus (1830 – 1905), a progenitor of the discipline, believed strongly in the rights and abilities of people to manage themselves in relation to their local bioregion, free from rule by a remote, centralized government. His approach to anarchy was unique in its emphasis on the environment – Reclus understood that a mindset that encourages one person or people’s domination over another must, in the race to profit from natural “resources”, also foster domination over nature.

On Saturday the Department of Corrections Office in Seattle was paint bombed and had graffiti written on it with the message, "Destroy All Prisons (A) FTP (A)". The office is a site of the prison society that we all live in. The grand jury in Seattle has for the last year and a half embodied that prison society we struggle against. This action is meant as a small gesture against that repression and in solidarity with those who struggle against it. Fuck the DA, the FBI and the grand jury.

WAR ON WAR! NOT A SINGLE DROP A BLOOD FOR THE “NATION”!
The power struggle between oligarchic clans in Ukraine threatens to escalate into an international armed conflict. Russian capitalism intends to use redistribution of Ukrainian state power in order to implement their long-standing imperial and expansionist aspirations in the Crimea and eastern Ukraine where it has strong economic, financial and political interests. On the background of the next round of the impending economic crisis in Russia, the regime is trying to stoking Russian nationalism to divert attention from the growing workers' socioeconomic problems: poverty wages and pensions, dismantling of available health care, education and other social services.

The latest sky-scraping new residential tower under construction and how may zillions of dollars people will pay to live there are frequent, favorite topics on this site. But consider the opposite of that: squatting. That topic, and how to do it right, was the subject of a talk last night at the East Village's Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, or MoRUS. Appropriately enough, the museum itself is a reclaimed urban space. About two decades ago, the building was left to rot first by its owner and then by the city. There was no roof and there were no stairs. But squatters took over the space, fixed the stairs, rebuilt the roof, and brought the building up to fire code. Now, the museum, which opened in December of 2013, occupies the first floor and basement and a collective lives in the apartments above. From the street, it looks like an ordinary building, but it's actually called C-Squat. It serves as an example to wannabe squatters; now, onto the practical advice.

“The fact that this society is divided into classes with opposing interests means that it is always at risk of tearing itself apart. The government is there to make sure that doesn’t happen. Whether the government is a dictatorship or a democracy, it holds all the guns and will use them against its own population to make sure that we keep going to work.” – Work, Community, Politics, War

How might being “against” systems oppression and domination actually support those systems? How might “being radical” end up distancing radicals from the people they want to be engaging? This is a summary and analysis of “Anarchy without Opposition,” by Jamie Heckert, a chapter in Queering Anarchism.

New York (CNN) -- A graffiti vandal hit the home owned by Spike Lee's father and a neighboring home in Brooklyn Friday -- days after the filmmaker's curse-filled rant against the gentrification enveloping his old neighborhood.
The glass was shattered on the front door of the neighbor's home on Washington Park in the Fort Greene section, and "Do the Right Thing," the title of Lee's controversial 1989 film about racial tension in Brooklyn, was spray-painted on the wall along with the Circle-A, the symbol for anarchy.
