There has been an effort by scholars and organizers alike over the last forty years to segregate anarcho-syndicalism from the rest of the broad anarchist movement. The labor movement dominated social struggles in the first half of the twentieth century, but as large business union bureaucracies were formed and new shop organizing began to diminish, the participation of anarchists in labor began to wane as community struggles around environmental issues, LGBT and women’s struggles, and housing justice took precedence. The syndicalist strategies that defined the earlier successes of anarchism internationally diminished to only the most hardcore adherents of a labor strategy, though these ideas have had spikes during periods of economic crisis.

I write this statement after pleading guilty to state charges against me for my participation in an organized direct action taken against a group of white supremacists in May of 2012. I would like to share my thoughts about this action. First, major thanks and love to my friends and family who have supported me, for my amazing partner who kept me sane, my band for letting loose and my lawyer Sara Garber who has been ridiculously helpful in fighting this case with me.

Check out this new reader that compiles some of the best texts that critique "ally" politics as well as the closely linked, 'non-profit industrial complex.' As the text, 'Accomplices not Allies" writes: "The ally industrial complex has been established by activists whose careers depend on the “issues” they work to address...Ally has also become an identity, disembodied from any real mutual understanding of support.

From Black and Green Review
Black and Green Review is a new anarcho-primitivist (AP) magazine with a single goal: to deepen the AP and Green Anarchist (GA) critiques through open discussion and debate.
There is regrettably a long standing anarchist tradition of surface level dwelling. The words become subject to more scrutiny than the concepts and the discussion trickles to a self-reflexive standstill while meaningful action withers. We get lost in fluff and propaganda of the creed.

We are pleased to announce the release of the first issue of the anarchist aperiodic magazine Des Ruines from France, 112 pages in A4 binding format. This magazine will give itself the ambition to stir reflections, research and debate about anarchists and anti-authoritarians perspectives. Some lively debate and still relevant, some others left out and dug for the occasion.
The table of content and covers can be seen here:
