We Learn As We Walk: Looking Back on Five Years of NEFAC

  • Posted on: 26 April 2005
  • By: worker

<table><tr><td>The late 1990s was a depressing time for anarchists in North America. Long time activists were leaving a declining movement en masse, while projects were disbanding or taking a hiatus. Anarchists of the 1990s had struggled hard to develop a working praxis, while simultaneously trying to predict what "the next big thing" would be in terms of social struggle. Some talked of ecology, while others built up infoshops and other counter-institutions.</td><td><img src="files/pictures/nefac.jpg"></td></tr></table>

EuroMayday!

<table><tr><td><strong>EUROMAYDAY CALL</strong>
Precarity is the most widespread condition of labour and life in Europe today. It affects everyone, everyday, in every part of life: whether chosen or imposed, precarity is a generalised condition experienced by the majority of people.

Precarious people are now the corner-stone of the wealth production process.
Notwithstanding this, we are invisible and count for nothing in the traditional forms of social and political representation or in the European agenda.</td><td><img src="./files/pictures/mayday05_thumb.jpg"></td></tr></table>

On February 18th 2005, a contingent of anarchists from Rio´s anarchist federation (FARJ or Federação Anarquista do Rio de Janeiro)made our way to Olga Benario Prestes, a squatted piece of land on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro to participate in their 2nd year anniversary and victory celebration. It had been two years of occupation and there was much reason to celebrate. The celebration was taking pace just days after Brazilian military and pigs had brutally evicted hundreds of families (12,000 people in total) from squatted land in Goiania, in the north of Brasil, killing several and disappearing many.

Call for International Action Day of Solidarity with the Prisoners of Aachen

  • By: worker

Since the 23rd of March 2005, our comrades Gabriel, Jose, Bart and Begoña are on trial in Aachen, Germany. Since the day of their arrest, on the 28th of June 2004, it is clear that they are and will be treated with a special vengeance - for months Jose, Gabriel and Bart have been imprisoned in almost complete isolation, for months they have been pictured as dangerous criminals, for months part of the so called radical left movement have kept silent. All this is standard procedure for the defenders of the existing order, normality, morality.

Bring flags, banners, anti-authoritarian literature (in different languages, English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese), yourself and your friends Worldwide May 1st is recognized as International Worker's Day, a holiday that carries with it a history of class struggle, state repression, and resistance from the working class.
In 1886, 800,000 workers from all trades and factories throughout the US went on strike demanding the eight-hour workday. The Ruling class responded by sending out their lap-dog police forces, opening fire on picketers, and in the end, framing, railroading, and murdering eight anarchists in Chicago, known as the “Haymarket martyrs.�

Mehmet continued his resistance at Tokat 48 th Infantry Training Division where he was sent: he refused to wear uniform, didn't permit his hair and beard to be cut, and didn't sign any paper. His resistance for conscientious objection right has impacted soldiers: a group of soldiers with some officers demanded to meet Mehmet Tarhan to get info about conscientious objection and declared that they want this right to be legalised and supporters of this right to work more intensely. Mehmet is insisting on his conscientious objection right.
