<em>The proletarian movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interest of the immense majority. The proletariat, the lowest stratum of our present society, cannot stir, cannot raise itself up, without the whole superincumbent strata of official society being sprung into the air. —Karl Marx, 1848</em>

<em>It can see to it that not only no action of this inner group [Blacks] is opposed to the real interests of the nation, but that it works for an in conjunction with the best interests of the nation. —W.E.B. DuBois, 1940</em>

Organization of Revolutionary Anarchists in the Southeast

Anarchism is the only political movement of the last 100 years to seek the liberation of all people from Capital and Government. But our accomplishments pale beside our ideals. That is, anarchism has so far failed in its task largely because of an unwillingness or inability to organize effectively, and to act collectively against the bosses and politicians.

We need to get our shit together!

The Capital Terminus Collective is a group of revolutionary anarchists in the Atlanta area who have a class-war perspective of society. We intend to raise awareness of the ability of a militant mass of workers to create a libertarian communist society devoid of oppression and exploitation. We are convinced that a specific anarchist organization is a necessary tool in accomplishing this task. Accordingly, we are calling for revolutionary anarchists across the southeast region of the United States to create this organization in our area.

<em>Review: Lucy Parsons:
Freedom, Equality and Solidarity: Writings and Speeches, 1878-1937.
Edited Gale Ahrens Published by Charles H. Kerr</em>

Gale Ahrens has done the anarchist movement a real service in putting together this collection, which should rescue Lucy Parsons from the dark corner she has existed in. In it she emerges from the shadow of her martyred husband as a central if neglected figure in the development of anarchism in the USA.

<a href="http://alternativelibertaire.org/index.php?dir=journal/al138&page=138_13... Libertaire, Paris March 2005 issue</a>

Translated from French by SonofTomJoad, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

This text was received from Klito, a women-only feminist collective.

There's still a lot to do if we are really going to fight against patriarchy within libertarian groups. Klito, a women-only collective, sees some problems and wants to suggest some courses of action. We, as libertarian feminists, want to sound an alarm. We denounce the double workday of women workers who, once they get home, get stuck with household chores, but also among libertarians, there is the double struggle of women. The struggle against patriarchy requires two times as much energy as other battles because we must fight not only on the social front but also within the political groups in which we work as activists. Who puts the labels on the envelopes? Sweeps the meeting rooms? The women, usually. Who coordinates the demos? Who speaks louder at the meetings? The men, usually.

Guy Debord's Letters, 1957-1964

<em>I believe that all of the people who prefer personal letters to the [situationists'] journal lack the ability to elevate themselves to the generality of the same problems. Thus, they don't see that it is the same position, the same thing, but more utilizable by more people. Of course, if it is a question of saying, "we are all better than that" (than all writing), this is obvious. It is one of our basic themes. But an epistolary correspondence, even with a friend, even if one is understood, seems to me further away from the importance of living than the most profoundly calculated texts. It is even less satisying. (Guy Debord, letter of 2 September 1964 to Ivan Chtcheglov) </em>

Bortman's book revisits case of convicted anarchists Winchester resident Eli Bortman's recently published book, "Sacco & Vanzetti," discusses how the two immigrants may have been railroaded into a path that led to execution because of their political views. While the famous 1927 Boston murder trial occurred decades ago, Bortman said it is still relevant to what is taking place in America today. "I'm not sure how many middle-eastern people are locked-up by our government right now," he said. "Obviously, it's a different group of people and for a different reason, but the situation is the same."
