“Get down on the ground!” Vancouver police shouted at Gord Hill and his girlfriend as they raided their house last week, with their handgun pointed at his centre-mass.
In an interview, the Kwakwaka'wakw activist and author accused the police of using “No Pipelines” graffiti charges against another roommate—since dropped pending an investigation—as an excuse to confiscate all four residents' phones, computers, video cameras and USB sticks and to search their house.

From Kevin Tucker
After two decades in the world of eco-anarchist resistance, I’ve seen some horrible nicknames. I get it; I get the purpose of not using your legal name when merely voicing your opinion that the earth shouldn’t be destroyed makes you a “terrorist”. But when done sloppily, we all get stuck with having to explain why the mainstream article on your last campaign stupidly called your buddy, Firefly, Lightning Bug.

Brendon Valdez, a young anarchist prisoner and parent currently incarcerated in a Seward, Alaska maximum security prison, will be released in 40 days and needs our support.
Brendon became radicalized indirectly through association with me, Coyote Sheff, while I was still incarcerated in Ely State Prison in Nevada, and directly through my previous partner, Linda Honey, whom Brendon now calls Nana.

The means through which an age understands another is often expressed through its vanity. Petrarch’s adjournment of the dark ages was less a commentary on the brutality and dearth of “the period of realized unreason”, than a veneration of his own time. It was a manner of disassociation, of carving out a demarcated epoch in which a distinctly human achievement served as the criteria for chronological register; the radiance of the vernacular sonnet outshines the ignoble residue of Roman glory. In short, it was a Weltanschauung of the present, rather than the simple act of repudiating the past. The anatomy of the present contains the key to the anatomy of the past.

From Anarchy Live!
My name is Michael Kimble and I’m a 49 year old, black, gay anarchist being held kaptive by the state of Alabama. I’ve been active for over 20 years in the struggle for a better world. I’ve suffered and weathered all the hate, brutality, and slander the state has thrown at me. I’ve been in rebellion against the institutions of capitalist patriarchy, racism, and coercion my whole life, but didn’t realize it. My rebellion began with the institution of the family.

“In left-right politics, left-wing politics are political positions or activities that accept or support social equality, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. It typically involves a concern for those in society who are perceived as disadvantaged relative to others and an assumption that there are unjustified inequalities that need to be reduced or abolished.” -Wikipedia
