We are seeking contributions to a proposed edited book entitled “Anarchist Political Ecology”. Our intention is to publish the book with an Anarchist Press. If we receive enough submissions we will aim to produce 2 edited volumes, with one focusing on Theoretical Horizons and the other on Empirical Axes.
We’ve got big plans to share with you
Since our humble start in the spring of 2015 we’ve been proud to serve as the leading outlet for anarchist news and counter information. Your financial support has helped IGD grow and sustain itself for the last two years.
Since our inception, we’ve boosted much needed fund raisers for anarchist, antifascist, and political prisoners as well as dropped exclusive interviews with those on the front lines of rebellion in so-called North America
Translator's Introduction to The Formation of Local Councils by Omar Aziz
Omar Aziz, revolutionary anarchist born in Damascus, was a friend and comrade to many and is fondly remembered and deeply missed. His text, The Formation of Local Councils, remains one of the core strategic proposals of the social revolution in Syria. He first published it in late 2011, and then released an expanded and revised version in February 2012 with a new introduction. This present translation offers the introductions to both versions and the full text of the second version. It doesn’t seem that Omar’s intention was to produce a static, finished text -- with his emphasis on adapting to local context and changing conditions, it’s likely he would have continued to revise and change his proposals.
Whilst the rest of France was trapped within the dilemma between capitalist Macron or fascist Le Pen, in the evening of presidential election night on Sunday May 7th, 2017, when most of french people were waiting to see who's going to rule their lives for them, instead of themselves, anarchists, antifascists and anticapitalists gathered once again to protest with the slogan “No nation, no bosses, No Le Pen, no Macron" (Ni patrie, Ni patron, Ni Le Pen, Ni Macron).

1. First of all thanks for agreeing to this interview, it’s most appreciated comrades! To start off with, how many comrades are in the IRPGF, and if you are comfortable answering this, what countries are you all from?

At age 8, Audrey Tang wrote a computer game for her 4-year-old brother to help him learn fractions. At 14, she dropped out of school to start a search-engine company. At 19, she had left Taiwan to work as an entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. Now, at 36, she is Taiwan’s youngest government minister, charged with jump-starting the island’s stagnating, $130-billion high-tech sector. She is also Taiwan’s first transgender Cabinet minister and, perhaps most remarkable, the only one who describes herself as an anarchist.
The anarchist movement stands at a crossroads. Interest in our politics is surging, and collectives across North America are forging ahead with new projects and battling the fascist threat. But it has become clear to many of us that our old tactics can only bring us limited success. We have to learn from our history if we are to achieve our true potential. It is time to overcome the old division between insurrectionist and social anarchism. The new anarchist movement has to combine the best elements of the radical tradition into a coherent force for revolutionary change. The new anarchist movement must be a mass movement with the strength to overthrow this decaying system. It is our duty not only to fight, but to win.

The r/Anarchism mod team disputes Reddit’s content policy after mods get removed for approving banned content.
Modern anarchism has found a place beyond the huddled coffee shops of the Spanish Civil War: The r/Anarchism subreddit. With over 72,000 readers and cousin pages like GreenAnarchism, it has become a meeting place for contemporary anarchists to exchange thoughts, rally together from all parts of the world and frolic into sunflower fields with wild abandon. However, on Reddit, anarchists have to follow the rules just like everyone else.

A text that sums up the ideas expressed during the meetings ‘With our heads held high
State repression is the most important part of the system of dominion and one of its most disgraceful expressions; it doesn’t surprise us that those who are struck most are historically those who don’t let themselves be recuperated by the system of power, i.e. anarchist, revolutionary and rebel individualities.
