This is a The Final Straw Radio mini-episode and we just had a quick conversation with Assata, an activist and member of The Yellow Hammer Alternative, an Alabama-based far left autonomous mutual aid group. We talked about relief work done by Assata’s group around Hurricane Harvey, in Mobile with Food Not Bombs and in the run-up to Hurricanes Irma and Jose. More about Assata’s group can be found at theyellowhammeralternative.com and you can make donations to their and others efforts in the gulf at https://www.youcaring.com/theyellowhammeralternative

The following zines and pamphlets were released in the past month and are of interest to the broad anarchist space. We share these each month as a way of highlighting the variety of anarchist printed material and to encourage increased circulation and discussion. Please consider making copies of these and distributing them or hosting reading groups and discussion circles.
Contrary to some rumors, the 2017 Houston Anarchist Bookfair will go on as planned!! Our only serious setback from the storm is that we are behind on promotion, and a lot of people in the city have a lot on their plates this week, us included. So we want your help getting the word out for the next three weeks!
This attempt to clarify obvious facts is in response to the new call to arms by Scott Campell but really isn't about him. He serves as an excellent example of an approach to anarchism that we do not share, and so will stand in for all those who agree with his position but tbh it's hard to feel particularly strongly about him specifically.
