Earlier this week here in Berlin, we threw paving stones through the windows of an office of the Social Democratic Party of Germany. We attacked with comrade Luke O'Donovan in our thoughts. Like Luke, our humble action was motivated by a love of life and an active rejection of a resignation to death.

The New York Times published an article today August 17th titled "Lack of Leadership and Generational Split Hinder Protest," which argues that the two points of contention are possibly related. Of course as usual with the NY Times, dry reporting is the default instead of an obvious position that may scare regular readers. With that said, it doesn’t take reading between the lines to notice that Ferguson and the rejection of formal leadership is a trend increasing in frequency worldwide.

Occupy is often derided as having been leaderless and ineffective, but in conjunction with the Tea Party, few if any social movements in American history have done more to identify and discredit collusion between government and corporations. "Corporatism," once a term confined to academic discourse, is now routinely used to describe the general relationship between government and business in the United States. Moreover, it seems safe to assume that because of the efforts of Occupy and the Tea Party, which began in 2009 largely as a protest against the Troubled Assets Relief Program, few if any members of Congress will vote for another massive corporate bailout in the foreseeable future without fear of upsetting their constituents.

Smashy smashy in the west side of Vancouver! This fight is between Vancouver's cleanest and greenest ken doll mayor and CP rail over some railroad tracks that the rail wants to get operational again and the city wants to turn into yet another bike path. It seems like CP rail wants to get their shit operational again so they have another stream of blood money flowing through the city. Over the last 25 years people have been snatching up the free green space along the tracks to plant gardens and carve their niches out of the shithole that is this town.

Phoenix Arizona anarchists have been active supporting the Ferguson uprising in different ways. Anarchists are organizing and attending local events as well as spreading propaganda both online and off. Many comrades see the events in Ferguson as much more than an isolated disturbance or a singular flash point that the state is having trouble controlling.

Anarchists dropped two banners off an overpass in Tucson, one reading "Tucson to Missouri: Fuck the Police!" and the second reading "Sí Se Puede Vivir Sín Policía" (Yes We Can Live Without Police).
We in Tucson want to send our solidarity to the antagonists in Ferguson, MO. Keep it up! We recognize that a couple of banners don't hold a candle to the spirit of resistance you continue to bring us. WE FUCKING LOVE YOU.

Earlier this week, several pieces of heavy equipment, including a dump truck and water pump, located at the construction site of a Mcdonalds restaurant off 29th and Powell in S.E. Portland, were sabotaged by having bleached poured into their fuel tanks.

1. What happened to Mike Brown is a tragedy that can’t be put into words. A less spoken tragedy is that it’s the day to day reality for so many of us–especially those of us who are young, who are people of color, who don’t fit the cops’ idea of an acceptable, law abiding citizen. How often do the police kill someone? In St. Louis, it seems like almost every month. We often don’t do anything about it, or feel like we can. The last few days have been different.
