A MEMO FROM THE OFFICE (Contributed by another comrade in So-Called Australia)

Jobs Destroy Our Dreams

When I’m not at work I study the world. I read news articles and books, I listen to podcasts and I write my own articles and reflections. I practice music and I share music. I exercise and I go outside. I volunteer and try to help build a different world with other people. I dream of new possibilities for everybody and for myself.

Lately, we’ve witnessed right-wing populists, nationalists, racists, and fascists of all types licking their lips, emboldened by the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States of America. Following this torturous, political freak-show, we have already seen the dangerous realities and challenges it will bring about. Many from the right have come to see this as their moment to shine, while for many more it presents some sort of mythical return to a time of “greatness, prosperity, and freedom”.

From: https://disaccords.wordpress.com/2016/07/02/sydney-anti-electoral-campaign/

Over the past two months some anarchists around Sydney mounted a campaign against politics and the democratic process.

This election takes place in a period of historic disillusionment with the political spectacle and the politicians who represent it, and never before have so many parties been on offer, to direct that mistrust back into the electoral process.

From the introduction: Welcome to the fifth issue of FTP zine, our biannual report on anti-colonial, anti-state resistance, compiled within occupied Cadigal territory.

Like previous issues we have chosen to highlight acts of resistance to the Australian state and its control of this territory, such as attacks on its police, its prisons, its monuments and its schools.

The entirety of the content in this publication was found as public information online, and later compiled for this zine. Nothing here is the original content of those who may be responsible for this project.

They are locked in a struggle for freedom. Freedom from oppression, freedom from the ruling classes, freedom from "the man".

Now, the battle is on their doorstep. Literally.

The Melbourne Anarchist Club – home to a group of social outliers who reject "hierarchical power structures" and believe profit is evil – is staring down its capitalist overlords as their headquarters is engulfed by boutique apartments.

The struggle for the environment

Through libertarian communism we can reach a point of balance between the capacities to produce, the needs of populations, and the limits of the biosphere. We cannot build our future in opposition to the rest of life. The ideology of domination must be broken everywhere, so that humanity can find a safe future on its planet.

From Fierce Dreams - by Riflebird

We are not autono­mous, we are everywhere and everyone. We are looking to set an invisible trend that is already here, that abandons the shackles of subculture, identity and ideology, and finds comfort in the revolutionary discomfort we all feel. The sui­cidal are in control, destroying the land that feeds us, mediating our relationships with each other and all life on this planet, and establish­ing a global reality that efficiently forces all life to survival as opposed to living.
