From Anarchist Agency - by Carwil Bjork-James with Chuck Munson
Anarchists are part of the global conversation on what’s broken in the world, but when things really fall apart—like with the current Ebola outbreak—is the state the only answer? How might a stateless society respond to a challenge like this one? This article provides an anarchist response to these questions, while highlighting issues that require those of us with anarchist politics to carefully think through our position.

From Anarkismo by Wayne Price
Kevin Carson is attempting to resurrect anarchist economic theory. This is interesting because most current anarchist political economy is speculation about a post-capitalist, post-revolutionary, economy—what it would look like and how it might work. There is little or nothing of an analysis of how present-day capitalism functions. For that, most anarchists either rely on some variety of conventional (pro-capitalist) economics or they look to aspects of Marxism. The latter is the strategy I used in my book (Price 2013)—with the subtitle, “an anarchist introduction to Marx’s critique of political economy.” There have been anarchists using Karl Marx’s economic views—while rejecting his statist politics—beginning with Michael Bakunin. (And there has always been a minority of Marxists who look toward the more libertarian and humanistic side of Marx’s work, whose politics are close to anarchism.)

In honor of Mike Brown, and in response to the grand jury decision not to
prosecute Darren Wilson, protests and disturbances occurred across the
country on Black Friday. Protesters invaded malls and shopping centers, shut
down public transit, halted commerce, and demanded vengeance for Mike Brown
and all victims of police shootings.
In Seattle, several events were called for, but all blended together in a 5
hour long roaming march and disruption of Capitol Hill and downtown. Energy
was high, as was antagonism against the police and business as usual. What
follows is a partial account—the authors were not present for the entire
event, and could not have seen everything in any case. This is from our
perspective, but more perspectives, and more reportbacks, are always

Portland went HARD AS FUCK last night!
Yesterday, 1,500 people gathered downtown infront of the justice center. This place is not only the central precinct for the police, but also serves as a jail. The perfect place to hold a rally within the context of darren wilson, and police violence in general.
This event was organizing by the AMA coalition, a group host organizations that are known collaborators with the police. Old church men who would rather sing songs to them, and invite the police chief himself, then confront them.

After the non-indictment of Darren Wilson came out, a spontaneous demonstration occurred and congregated at College Town. From there the march meandered through the University of Rochester campus where it ended at Rush Rhees Library.
After this, a flag was burned by a group in black covering there faces, after the flag burning a demonstrator was chased, tackled, and eventually hauled away by campus security to the U of R public safety building. He was released soon after with no charges or involvement from the RPD.

Friday morning, November 21st at 9am, 50 people that claimed to be part of a movement that denounces and organizes against police and military violence, notably all the eyes that have been lost to flashballs and the death of Rémi Fraisse, made a symbolic action to close down the police station in Sautron.
“This is a symbolic, 'good kids' action, don't panic!” yelled their spokesperson over a megaphone, while others chained the gates shut and singing and chanting, screwed metal plates over the door and windows. This is their communiqué:

Despite the bleakness of the situation in Ukraine, at least I was amused by the fact that Nazis were fighting on both sides of the front, killing each other.
But then I found out that some "anti-fascists" have been doing the same 1) 2) 3).

Anarchists have claimed responsibility for arson attacks on five cars in an affluent area of Bristol, police said.
The vehicles, including a Porsche, were parked in driveways and on the road in Long Ashton when they were set alight at about 04:00 GMT on Tuesday.
Police said it was "sheer luck" nobody was seriously hurt or killed.
Det Ch Insp Andy Bevan said they had been made aware a group was claiming responsibility for the fires online but were keeping an open mind.
