'Black December' by Sean Swain

Black December is coming, and none too soon. We’ve hashed out our theories and we’ve analyzed our reality, we know what kind of future we want and what we are going to have to tear apart in order to get it. The time for philosophizing and talking it out has ended and we face the inevitable moment of conflict with the forces of control and conformity and subjugation.

December really is the perfect starting point, here in the U.S. anyway. It’s the darkest month of the year, the most non-daylight hours to carry our acts of resistance and rebellion. Also, in the cold, everyone wears ski masks. So, a rebel about to strike a Walmart or a police car or some fascist administrator’s house doesn’t look quite as conspicuous as he or she might look in, say, July or August in the same gear.

Having read the Black December proposals, I would like to speak to those who are, so far, paralyzed by fear and skepticism, who still don’t believe that we can undertake radical, militant actions against the common enemy, that political violence even of the clandestine variety is doomed, and that it’s okay to “play” at being anarchists, but it’s foolhardy for us to put our proverbial money where our mouths are.

Topic of the Week: What to Do Next?

This is similar to a past topic of the week but I'd like to emphasize the question a bit differently. What do we do next? It appears that for some anarchists the most exciting work being done now is in the antifa or international solidarity fronts. Do you agree?

Is there work a little closer to home that you advocate for or should our practice look a little more like improving our daily lives? Our question this week isn't "What is to be done?" but what do we do next?

A Q&A with John Zerzan and Zander Sherman

"What we’re seeing is the emptiness of modern technological society. We live in an era with no real sense of community or connection to nature. There’s a hollowness to civilized life. It doesn’t appeal to people, and some people react with extreme violence."

6 December 2008, few minutes after 9 pm - Time Zero of the December Revolt.

Two policemen shoot against a group of youngsters hanging out on a Saturday night, at the heart of the Exarcheia district of central Athens, an area with a long history of insurrection against authority and riots for socio economic and political grounds, inhabited mainly by anarchists, anti-authoritarians and liberals. The police bullet finds in the heart and kills 15 year old Alexandros Grigoropoulos.

They are locked in a struggle for freedom. Freedom from oppression, freedom from the ruling classes, freedom from "the man".

Now, the battle is on their doorstep. Literally.

The Melbourne Anarchist Club – home to a group of social outliers who reject "hierarchical power structures" and believe profit is evil – is staring down its capitalist overlords as their headquarters is engulfed by boutique apartments.

[Download Issue #3] (Prints 8.5x11)

It seems fitting that we are releasing this issue now, in December. Following the letter from imprisoned anarchists in Greece and the call for international activity, Black December rages on, writing the memory of our fallen comrades with words, banners, stones, and fire. In that spirit, we dedicate this third issue of Wildfire to the memory of New Afrikan anarchist and Black Liberation Army combatant Kuwasi Balagoon, and earth liberationist William Avalon Rogers.
