As the prospect of Kurdish independence becomes ever more imminent, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party transforms itself into a force for radical democracy.

"Free Luke O'donovan (A) Queer Revolt" and "www.letlukego.wordpress.com" and other things were sprayed around Minneapolis. We hope that when Luke gets out they give us a big hug and eat some collard greens with us. We love you Luke. Fuck cops, courts, bigots like those fuckers you stabbed and prisons. See you soon, my friend.

“I’m committed to making sure the forces of peace and justice prevail,” Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said in Ferguson on Saturday, August 16, after a week of conflicts sparked by the police murder of teenager Michael Brown. “If we’re going to achieve justice, we first must have and maintain peace.”

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.
