The Metro Transit police made the news this weekend in the Twin Cities for their significant size increase over the past few years, almost the same day as a video surfaced showing a police officer slam a handcuffed passenger onto the ground for not paying the light rail fare.

Now that the dogs have recovered from the pyrotechnic celebration of Colonization, Neoliberalism, and Nationalism we are ready to announce our Summer titles for 2015. This summer features one homage, some mischievousness, and some new titles on old themes.
Spring was eventful this year. Alongside the solid Bay Area bookfair and our sister project the BASTARD conference, were Montreal, NYC, and the brand new (and energetic and affirming) Orange County bookfair. We can't wait to see what they do next year.

The U.S. government filed papers this week to garnish the wages of a Portland State University sustainability official to make him pay more in restitution for his youthful role in a pair of eco-anarchist firebombings.
Jacob D.B. Sherman, a 33-year-old husband and father of two, has distinguished himself as a scholar at PSU. He holds a master's degree and was student speaker at the school's 2012 commencement ceremony.

From San Diego Reader
As the 33rd annual book fair in Tijuana was coming to an end, a completely different book fair was starting up. The first fair of independent publications hosted by Raices Infoshop, Food Not Bombs, Publicaciones #0, and other collectives took place in the plaza by the arch (El Reloj) in downtown Tijuana on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th. With no sponsorship of any kind, the fair was as DIY as it could possibly be.

June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.”

Tell us a little bit about what has happened concerning the academic leave of absence you have demanded within the new judicial framework after your hunger strike in November-December 2014.
It goes like this: I completed 1/3 of the course as required by the new regulation and I made the request for educational leave.

In the past several months since the streets of the so-called United States of America were set alight by riots after the murder of black teenager Mike Brown by a white police officer, an increasing number of people seem to be asking the question: do riots work?

From The Wildernist.
The myths of progress and humanism have lost their power, and out of the wilderness a new value set is growing—Wildism. Cover art by Paige Carter.
This issue is the product of rapid growth. During these past six months, The Wildernist's team has met many great people, added three, and received so many submissions that we're putting this issue out a month early! We really hope you enjoy it.

This is the fifth issue of FTP zine, our biannual report on anti-colonial,
anti-state resistance, within the occupied territory known as Australia.
Like previous issues we have chosen to highlight acts of resistance to the Australian state and its control of this territory, such as attacks on its police, its prisons, its monuments and its schools.
