The night was ablaze; lit with our collective desires for freedom, against the prison society and the world of authority.
The Long night of Rigaerstrasse was a vibrant celebration of our strength as anti-authoritarian, self organized individuals, collectives and projects as well as a show of our resistance to the logic of authority.

As an anarchist who participated in the larger Occupy phenomenon (in my case, Occupy Grand Rapids) I never really followed much of what was happening with Occupy Wall Street in New York City. When the occupations spread across the country, my inspiration came from elsewhere, cities like Oakland, Seattle, and St. Louis seemed to offer more interesting forms of anarchist involvement. By contrast, what I saw coming out of New York City—such as the “Declaration of the Occupation of New York City”—was generally not that exciting. Its political analysis was overly simplified and anarchist ideas were more or less nonexistent.
Nevertheless, I have always been interested in anarchists’ role in Occupy Wall Street.

This "letter" actually appeared as a Facebook comment on two different users' profiles, including Will Potter's, and it stems from a hostile exchange between Will and ourselves (Bellamy and Rydra of Free Radical Radio). I (Bellamy) am quoting from a few different Facebook comments Will made in reply to another Facebook user posting Episode 48 of Free Radical Radio, in which we criticized WIll Potter's crowdfunding effort for drones that he aims to use to surveil factory farms.

The post-Occupy stagnation of class struggle within the US context is becoming increasingly typified, in this period of ever deepening crisis, by a rather simplistic dual nature. The more radical milieus that emerged in the midst of Occupy, those that precipitated the emergence of a political non-subject, the refusal to enter into an articulable “political” discourse, the intentional lack of “political” demands, etc. have retreated into a period of convalescence, through which hopefully will emerge more critical self-reflection and evaluation of the post-Occupy landscape.

In the context of the recent mass one day protest strike on July 10th and the upcoming protest against strike breaking Ritzy workers this Sunday, Rob Ray examines the power of the strike, and the anarchist method of organising one.
The anarchist movement, particularly its class struggle element, tends to hold up strike action as a symbol of the working classes’ potential collective strength – and not without reason.

From contrainfo, translation waronsociety:
I start this letter by sending a sincere greeting to the compas outside these walls, hoping that the unisonous rhythm of rebellion continues to beat in their hearts and that this is reflected in their daily actions.
