Eric given another 6 month general correspondence restriction

from Support Eric King

Not the post we wanted to be making, but on July 7th after his communication restrictions expired SIS (special investigation services) from FCI Englewood gave him word that they were renewing the expired restrictions. For another 6 months, Eric will be unable to communicate with anyone who is not family. This will bring him to a total of a year and a half being held incommunicado from the public when this restriction ends

Call for International Week of Solidarity w/ Anarchist Prisoners

International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners

from https://solidarity.international/

2021 // 23 – 30 August

This was a tough year and more is to come. In those times we need solidarity more then ever – in daily life, our neighborhoods, our communities. But we should not forget our comrades in prison, who fight for freedom and equality. They experience hard times right now. Because the pandemic isolates people in prison even more. For that, this year we call again for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners.

Cuba: the end of the "Revolution's" social enchantment

CLANG CLANG CLANG CLANG ! ! ! !

via alasbarricadas, English translation by Anarchist News.

by Libertarian Workshop Alfredo López

Those who in the name of a future democracy or of the good functioning of the economy, come to discredit the affinities, the solidarity and the energies that sprung up in the protests, or reduce these events to “simple vandalism by libertines”, speak in name of, and with the language of the decrepit oligarchies that shamelessly raise their voice in our country once again.

Some information on the situation of Boris

Write an anarchist prisoner today!

Summary of the “Chaos Gathering”

"PROKURE THAT ANARCHY LIVES"

via Contra Info

The talks were given with sincerity and trust. Everyone came to participate or to listen without detracting from the nature of the activity. We would like to receive your feedback, criticisms, proposals! We are motivated and continue to think about how to discontinue the logics of inertia; how to spread affinity, chaos and anarchy. Nothing is over, everything continues!

There Are No “Anarchist Systems” without Anarchist Fundamentals

Anarchy is the set of principles that allow you to build justified hierarchies with a hammer. Or do you not know how to use a hammer and stop children from going into traffic?

from Center for a Stateless Society by Alex Aragona

Anarchists and those learning about anarchism should prioritize the bare-bone fundamentals of anarchist thinking, and these tenets should be the starting point. Such fundamentals almost always simply and neatly refer back to how one regards hierarchies and power in general, and which ones (if any) can justify themselves. If they can’t justify their existence, they ought not exist.

Postanarchist Ideas in Egoism, on Immediatism podcast

This series of podcast episodes was a project to see whether we could detect postanarchist ideas in egoist writings, specifically ideas of non-essentialism and not expecting a social revolution. The series started out as three essays requested by a listener: Saul Newman's essay on Stirner and Deleuze's anarchism, and the two by Wolfi Landstreicher. Once the postanarchist ideas in Saul Newman's thinking became clear, it became the larger game of finding the postanarchism in the egoism.

Letter from a Cuban Anarchist after the protests

solidarity asere

Published by Polémica Cubana
July 16, 2021

There is a lot of turmoil that cannot be fit into a left-right schema. It is a people who are discovering their capacity to be more than a mere mass of support for a retrograde and cynical oligarchy which uses the words “revolution” and “anti-imperialism” to legitimize an ordinary despotism hardly different from any other tyranny. They are a people tired of “revolutionary” and “socialist” inequalities and privileges.
