Topic of the Week: Racism

  • Posted on: 14 March 2016
  • By: thecollective

We have focused a lot of energy, as anarchists and as human beings, in the past year and a half on the history of oppression that we call racism in this country. Those conversations have looked like reflections on the impact that slavery, segregation, and jim crow laws have had on today. What we haven't done, and should, is plan for the future. What would we like to see the future of race relations look like?

On the night of March 9, we placed an incendiary device at the Santander bank branch on Ramiro Barcelos street. Our incentive to conspire and then carry out the attack was solidarity and complicity with anarchists behind bars who endure days and days of incarceration but still hold their heads high, proud of their ideas and convictions.

What follows is a list of people who were arrested and imprisoned during the Ferguson rebellions. Their charges, sentences, the particulars of their cases vary widely, as do their interpretations of the events in Ferguson and their participation or alleged participation in those events. We present the information below in hopes of linking up these prisoners with those on the outside who might be interested in writing to them or finding other ways of supporting them during their time in prison.

There is a fund to raise money for these prisoners as well as other Ferguson-related prisoners who did not want their information listed here but still deserve our support. This money will be used to send commissary to these folks during their incarceration.

From Network 23 - by Paul Cudenec

As an outright opponent of industrial capitalism and all the unhealthy thinking that it drags along behind it, I obviously have a lot of time for the American writer John Zerzan.

The two of us also share an unfashionable interest in the idea of hope, as he in fact points out in the concluding lines of his latest book, Why Hope? The Stand Against Civilization.

Earlier today (March 5), at 6 pm, a few friends attacked an SPVM cruiser parked outside of Charlevoix metro in the Montreal neighborhood of Pointe-Saint-Charles by slashing the tires and breaking the windows.

We want to use this attack as a call for actions against police in Montreal between now and the end of March.

Support Anarcho-Punks in Mexico

The Auditorio Che Guevarra is a special place in Mexico City. Seventeen years ago, students organizing a strike to keep university education free took an auditorium as a base from which to organize. The space was evicted and physically destroyed months later by police in an effort to destroy their movement, but re-occupied and rebuilt months later by a coalition of collectives, including theater, dance, and a vegan kitchen.

They have survived countless violent attacks from the state, university administration, rightwing thugs, and even authoritarian Marxist-Leninists. In the most recent eviction, paramilitary forces used batons, gas, and tasers to drive the occupiers from the Auditorium, as reprisal for hosting an international anarchist convergence that featured Alfredo Bonanno, Constantino Cavalleri, Gustavo Rodríguez. and Wolfi Landstreicher as speakers.
