We’re asking for help to keep Boxcar Books & Community Center going. For various reasons outlined below, we’re facing difficulty keeping our space open and need help. We currently don’t have money to pay rent for April, and will have to close if we can’t raise at least $1000 by next week.
“What should we do then? What’s your proposal?” These are questions I always hear from people.
A lot of people get stuck in this mindset. It can be a dangerous one. Sometimes, our anger and frustration leads us to do things in ways that don’t make any sense from more sober perspectives. Sometimes our eagerness for action leads us to ignore theory.
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. 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.
“Nature works wisely and without thinking… It does not recognize political borders, it situates new beings on the globe and contemplates the free play of forces that work upon them. At that point it overcomes by its push and character. It concedes the supreme “right” to existence… Eternal Nature inexorably takes vengeance on the sin of its enemies.
EugeneAnarchists.org provides a central point for getting involved with and learning about Anarchist activity in Eugene, OR and the surrounding areas (Springfield, Corvallis, Lane County, University of Oregon, etc).
In this year, we have seen some of the strongest anarchist resistance to the current american government since the early 20th century. Wether we discuss the riots in DC, or the pothole fixers in Portland Oregon, anarchist have been gaining national traction as the force that will resist the new president at every step he makes, as well as his supporting base.
As anarchist, we have momentum, and why shouldn’t we go full steam ahead?!
This is a call to all anarchist in Portland and beyond, to converge at Shemanski Park (1010 SW Park Ave, PDX OR, 97205) at 1pm.
The third episode of "The Anarchists"! We cover Portland's anarchist pothole repair crew, and analyse the decline of the political centre in the rise of the right and left wings. The recent Dutch election is covered, as well as recent union events in Finland and the dynamics in their election. We also cover how the UK Conservative Party stole UKIP's momentum, the rejection of austerity economics, and how much Jeremy Corbyn sucks.
From It's Going Down
There’s no doubt that SubMedia.Tv has been a huge influence on the anarchist movement in North America and across the world, and many people were sad to see the long running show, It’s The End of the World As We Know It And I Feel Fine, finally bow out after many years. However, Frank and his team at SubMedia aren’t throwing in their digital towel just yet, and this month are releasing a brand new show entitled, Trouble. Each month after, the show will feature a documentary on a different struggle. This month, it will be the #NoDAPL fight at Standing Rock.
