From through europe - by Toby Austin Locke
Breathing has become difficult, almost impossible: as a matter of fact, one suffocates. One suffocates every day and the symptoms of suffocation are disseminated all along the paths of daily life … There are no more maps we can trust, no more destinations for us to reach.

Left Bank Books is republishing Fredy Perlman's classic novel Letters of Insurgents. Originally published by Black and Red in 1976, and out of print for several years, this epistolary novel tells the story of two individuals living on distant continents resume contact through correspondence. They describe meaningful events and relationships in their lives during the twenty years since their youthful liaison, comparing the choices each took. Yarostan lives in a "workers' republic"; Sophia in a "Western democracy." They both make efforts to lead meaningful lives.

The background for our tale is the story of a more laborious problem: the problem of class. This appears as a specter haunting the Dickensian narrative Mayor-elect de Blasio used in his campaign, emphasizing inequalities within the city. But it also appears in the impending renegotiation of municipal labor contracts, and the broadening social recognition that stop and frisk is criminal along with the entire regime of mass incarceration.

Within the last few decades there has been a growing awareness of the import of anarchist political philosophy. This suggests that anarchist political philosophy is not really a political philosophy at all – it is something else. At the very least, it is considerably flexible, interdisciplinary, and open to multiple (often divergent) procedures for accessing truth. Anarchist political philosophy, it has been recently claimed, was always a form of “Cultural Studies.” I accept this thesis with some minor reservations.

Over the past month and a half, the International Direct Action Group (GADI) has committed a series of attacks against symbols of fascism. We offer no commentary and repost their communiques below:
We claim responsibility for the incendiary attack against a building of the French Army (the 35th Parachute Artillery Regiment in Tarbes, France) on the 27th of December 2013.
We also assume responsibility for the incendiary attack against the prison (in Tarbes, France) on the 25th of December 2013.

A reflection on the destiny of democracy today here in Athens is in some way disturbing, because it obliges to think the end of democracy in the very place where it was born. As a matter of fact, the hypothesis I would like to suggest is that the prevailing governamental paradigm in Europe today is not only non democratic, but that it cannot either be considered as political. I will try therefore to show that the European society today is no more a political society: it is something entirely new, for which we lack a proper terminology and we have therefore to invent a new strategy.

Convicted of Possession of Incendiary Device Charges and Facing 30 Years
On Friday, February 7, 2014, the jury in the NATO 3 trial returned its verdicts against Brent Betterly, Jared Chase, and Brian Jacob Church. These three had been held in Cook County Jail in Chicago since they were arrested on May 16, 2012. They faced trumped up, politically motivated terrorism, conspiracy, and arson charges because of their perceived politics and political activities (mostly through the Occupy movement).
