From Sean Swain
My name is Sean Swain and I'm speaking to you from a payphone at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville Ohio, the site of the longest prisoner uprising in US history*. I currently reside in the block where that uprising began, L5 and my cell still has the scorch marks on the walls from more than twenty years ago. I think the authorities leave the burn marks to remind all of us prisoners that they won.

The power of mainstream indoctrination is shown by the fact that most people don’t consider themselves radical leftists, socialists, or anarchists. The way they act shows that basically they are, only they don’t know it. They think that authority not only isn’t self-justifying (to quote Chomsky’s definition of anarchism) but is often or usually unjust, and merely has to be tolerated because it can’t realistically be dismantled.

A gesture is revolutionary not by its own content but by the sequence of effects it engenders. The situation is what determines the meaning of the act, not the intention of its authors. Sun Tzu said that “victory must be demanded of the situation.” Every situation is composite, traversed by lines of force, tensions, explicit or latent conflicts. Engaging with the war that is present, acting strategically, requires that we start from an openness to the situation, that we undersand its inner dynamic, the relations of force that configure it, the polarities that give it its dynamism.

From Fireworks - by EastWest
05.09.15 - When a friend was arrested during the recent rebellion against police and white supremacy, I found myself in a lot of court rooms. I've been in court rooms before, hell I've even stood before a judge a couple of times. Every time I've been in a court room, I've hated it. The entire system is designed to take agency and power away from everyday people; the State holds all of the cards.

Last week we received word that Sean's email and phone access have been suspended, along with his video visitation. This suspension came shortly after Sean asked us to post this story of an incident of arbitrary and unjustified brutality that occurred on his range (added below). Sean is not in the hole and he has not been physically attacked at this time.

LIKE MANY Portland neighborhoods, little flare-ups of kitsch and chic have been popping up around St. Johns, though at a slower pace than in other areas of the city. But one surprising and welcome addition has been Anarres Infoshop and Community Space, a small converted garage located just off the main drag that, for a few days a week, is a buzzing hub for the city's punks and anarchists.
