From Seattle Times

The typical media stereotype of a Seattle anarchist is a young person wearing black, smashing windows at a May Day march and screaming at nearby journalists and police officers.

But the Anarchist Book Fair at Washington Hall last Saturday felt more like being among hundreds of Quakers, most of whom just happened to be wearing black.

From The Wall Street Journal

PRYAMUKHINO, Russia—If there is a natural place to bring anarchists to order, it’s around a crumbling mansion here, which is where Sergei Kornilov tries to do it every summer.

It is the historical family home of Mikhail Bakunin, the father of modern anarchism, who was born here in 1814 and whom Mr. Kornilov describes as “our inspiration, a candle for what could be a better life.”

From The Brilliant

This is the first episode of Season Two of the Brilliant podcast (aka episode 30). In this new season we are going to split up the podcast into several different, but parallel projects. The first is a podcast conversation with Bellamy. This will be familiar in form and energy to Season One. The second is a different kind of a conversation (more of an interview) spread out over a year with Isaac Cronin, an influential figure in Bay Area post-situationist. We will cover most of the peaks and valleys of a life lived radically. The third is a series of interviews about infrastructure. How one becomes a provider of it. How one transverses the gap between DIY culture & education and becoming a practitioner. How the things one does as a j.o.b. is and is not relevant to the project of building for a qualitatively different world. Finally there may be some readings of obscure but relevant & interesting texts.

From Insurrection News Worldwide

When anarchism was born, it was born as a borderless struggle and as a struggle for a free world. From its inception as a political theory its proponents moved across territories to engage in the struggle, connected with comrades, and fought alongside those who struggled for liberation as virulently as they did.

Anarchists in Space Patch Inspired by Casey Brezik

Anarchist prisoner Casey Brezik is currently being held in the hole and is in need of support. He has been held there since July 17th for reasons that are as of yet unknown to his supporters.

As of August 23, his case managers are still saying they have no idea how long he will be held in segregation.

Casey does not have access to his property at this time; therefore, he may not have access to his friends and supporters' addresses and maybe unable to write. If you haven't heard from Casey in a while, please consider writing him so he has your address.
