Is It Fascism Yet?

What is fascism?

For maybe the first time since World War II, the word “fascism” has entered the popular lexicon. For years, relegated to poorly thought out anarchist screeds, or used by punks to describe any sort of authority at all, “fascism” has once again entered the mainstream. Donald Trump’s candidacy and election has put the word on more tongues since figures like Mussolini and Hitler actually ran fascist governments. Bolstered by “alt-right” figures such as Steve Bannon and Milo Yiannopoulos, it would appear to many that fascism is an immediate threat, and many have already mobilized with this in mind.

From Kurdish Question

We met and interviewed a person who travelled to Rojava to be a volunteer in the Peoples’ Protection Units (YPG). We present this interview anonymously, as wished by the person interviewed.

What inspired you to travel to Rojava and join the YPG?

Different aspects, but it connected me and others to our own historical roots such as antifascism, or revolutionary internationalism.

Were you in the International Batallion?

An Open Letter Denouncing Anti-Fascist Action Bay Area
(aka Antifa)


Antifa has no place in Oakland because it is a racist, reactionary, reductive, counter-revolutionary, and nihilistic organization that has attacked workers and community members as well as engaged in intimidation increasing police repression against marginalized communities.

Tabling at ELaw with Ian; good stuff. Read out "Death." Anarchy Radio is
"gossip and NYT reprints"(?) YouTube: a billion hours a day. Bird flu is back,
French towns "fade", zines not obsolete despite internet (see Black and Green
Review!) Action news. "Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology" as social
media produce more social isolation. Sleeplessness, spills, Colorado River
declining, two calls.

From Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair

The 2017 Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair is going to be postponed from April 22 to September 16, 2017.

Last fall we booked the two 2016 venues for this year’s event. A few weeks ago one of the venues cancelled our agreement, leaving us with no place to hold workshops/speakers. Since then, we have been unable to find a venue that has enough room for vendors as well as 2-3 workshop spaces that is also accessible (not requiring stairs), and available on the originally scheduled date of April 22.

In this inaugural episode of "The Anarchists", we talk about recent ELF attacks, upcoming May Day actions, and the current popularity of the term "alt-left".

This podcast is a product of a group of r/Anarchism exiles. Our collective was formed a few months ago, and contains members with ideas ranging from anti-civ to syndicalism. We aim to discuss current issues, as well as older, unresolved topics in anarchism.

From The Ex-Worker

January 20th, 2017 saw perhaps the fiercest resistance to ever take place at an American presidential inauguration. Episode 55 of The Ex-Worker podcast surveys the day’s momentous protests in DC and beyond, mass media reactions to anarchist resistance, and lessons for the future of radical protest. We begin with an interview with an organizer from Disrupt J20, evaluating the blockades, marches, and disruptions, commenting on state and right-wing repression, reflecting on the spokescouncil model, and sharing visions for the future, as well as info on how to support the 200-plus comrades arrested in the streets that day. Our friends at Agency, an anarchist media relations project, share a detailed report on mass media coverage of the demonstrations and of anarchists and anarchism over the past weeks, including plenty of hilarious quotes and clips.

A Collaborative Project for 4/20

Here’s an idea: a zine, well laid out and readable in an afternoon, with a funny picture on the front of it and a few varied articles inside; a day in late April, hopefully not too rainy, and a bunch of people gathered in a park or a public square; anarchists, normal-looking or otherwise, and maybe with a solid chemical excuse for not being able to articulate their ideas in plain words.
