From Konbini - by DJ Pangburn
Since time immemorial, anarchism has had a PR problem. Its many ideological strands have never truly controlled their respective images and terms of debate in the public consciousness. Instead, for over a century this ground has been ceded to politicians, mainstream media and big business, who have separately and collectively framed anarchism as — to borrow the term once leveled against Throbbing Gristle — “wreckers of civilization”.

The skies of Santa Ana were frigid and gray last Saturday, but the only storm in sight was brewing under the roof of El Centro Cultural de Mexico. Here, dozens of vendors, volunteers and community activists gathered for Orange County’s First Anarchist Bookfair.

Comrades, we hereby inform you all that as of 00:00 hours from today, May 18, 2015 that we the subversives who inhabit the high security prison have joined Juan Flores, Guillermo Duran and Nataly Casanova in their hunger strike struggle.
We do so with a deep sense of anti-prison solidarity and we make the same demands as our comrades who have already completed 34 days of hunger strike. These demands are:
- The immediate release of Enrique Alfonso Guzmán Amadeo considering the ridiculous accusations and the delusional evidence that has been presented by the prosecutors.

Some time has already passed since the web-scandal surrounding Petar Stanchev's unfortunate article, “Mr. Anarchist, we need to have a chat about colonialism”. All the better. We need cool heads to examine the underlying questions of international solidarity. Through the course of this article, I wish to tackle the problem on the basis of actual experiences of international solidarity, both personal and collective, referring to revolutions past and to relatively successful efforts of international anarchist solidarity with the Mapuche struggle.

Impromptu Action believes in a common unity among people we are trying to organize by a common self-interest. We have found this to be the most effective tool one can use.
When institutions do not support us, we convince them that it is in their best self-interest to stay out of the fight.
We always begin by imagining the instant before victory and back step step-by-step to the original planning moments.
We counterbalance any positive points of our success as well as the negatives of the people in power we are organizing against.

This blog will be a designated place for people to expose the individuals who turn the daily gears of systematic abuse within the prison system. As they are simply another arm on the body of the law, they seem to have the same attitude as the cops. The attitude which we’re referring to is that of a hardened mobster who is certain they run the streets, that they can get away with anything, and that they are untouchable. We are delighted to inform every human tool of the legal system and the social order which they protect that the fact is they are simply made of flesh and bone like the rest of us. No one is untouchable, ourselves included. The battlefield is everywhere and the killing field is where you stand.

Max Nettlau’s writings on anarchist strategy form an early entry in a well-established anarchist genre: “Writings about Why this ‘Anarchy’ Thing Hasn’t Caught on Like We Thought it Should.” They’re notable for a number of reasons, including Nettlau’s credentials as “the Herodotus of Anarchism” and the fact that they date from such an early period in anarchist history. If my sense of the chronology is correct, anarchism had been a widely used keyword for less than twenty years when “Responsibility and Solidarity in the Labor Struggle” was published, and Nettlau published his “heresies” to an audience composed of many of the most prominent pioneers of anarchism.
