Black Seed #8 Out Now!

From Little Black Cart

The Black Seed that was almost finished before the death of the main editor and the onslaught of covid19, this issue, perhaps the last, of this journal, now covers even more territory in its 36 pages. Two obituaries for Aragorn!, two report backs on the Indigenous Anarchist Conference in 2019, part 2 of a conversation with the Anpoa Duta collective, a scathing anonymous piece called Rethinking the Apocalypse, on covid19 and so much more...

Call to protest on July 2-3

From Contra Info

Chile: Call to protest on July 2-3

We make a call for all the territory to rise in subversive initiatives to confront this passivity imposed by the State-enterprise $hile, where the political and social violence has to be a liberating element to break with the monopoly of police and military violence that holds up the chilean State. Fraternal greetings to all who fight against domination, we’ll see you on July 2 and 3 in the barricades, anti-social social war against the state and capital!

Protest: A Security Nightmare

During a recent protest in a small town we have observed terrible security practices that we would like to point out.

In general, we do not think that protests are a good use of comrades' time and energy. We think that engaging in protests exhausts activists by corralling them into prescribed march routes and coaxing them into a sense of having 'accomplished something' while in reality the have only strengthened the state by providing data about the strategies and risk profiles of activists as well as practice responding to them. We do not feel that this increases activists' freedom or political power. We are not necessarily opposed to spur-of-the-moment participation in actions as opportunities arise, but we think there are important factors to take into consideration:

Horrible Creatures

Horrible Creatures

by Sever, via electronic mail

to all those who left after their comrades treated them horribly

When the survivors realize that all the mayhem and tumult was a revolution—our revolution—and that it's already slipped away from us, a mocking failure belying our pretensions to anything other than misery, other than failure, the blame will start.

Hostis Issue 3: Fuck the Police

From Hostis Journal

On Halloween 2016, we invited submissions for Issue Three of Hostis, titled “Fuck the Police.” Rather than beg for forgiveness, let’s just chalk it up to shit getting in the way. The recent George Floyd uprising has lit a fire under our feet, and we hope it will finally come to fruition.

The Problem of Scale in Anarchism

From Center for a Stateless Society

The Problem of Scale in Anarchism and the Case for Cybernetic Communism

by Aurora Apolito

There is little doubt that anarchism works on what I will refer to as “the small scale”. Historically, one of the main forms of criticism levelled against anarchism has been that it does not provide a convincing theory of how a decentralized, non-hierarchical form of organization can be scaled up to work efficiently on “the large scale”.

A Letter to Conservatives

From Center for a Stateless Society

by William Gillis

It’s Red Dawn! It’s here! Sprinkle around some more memes where AOC’s eyes bug out and you can seriously imagine her sending people off to gulags for playing golf or whatever. Never mind the actual concentration camps, the actual secret police, the actual mass surveillance, the actual military on our streets. Communists!

From It's Going Down

Communique from anarchists in Huajuapan de León, Oaxaca, marking four years since the police killing of the anarchist radio worker and land defender, Salvador Olmos

To everyone, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers.

Greetings wherever you find yourself and at whatever time of the day that you read this.

Today, four years after the vile murder of our friend Chava, our pain and rage has only increased. We see that the dignity of our assassinated social fighters, and those who remain standing, rests in the hands of those that day in and day out continue the struggle–the struggle that few want to understand and that many prefer to avoid.

Call for Week of Solidarity With Anarchist Prisoners

Call for International Week of Solidarity With Anarchist Prisoners 2020 // 23 – 30 August

From Till all are free

A new decade has started on this planet. With the rise of right-wing movements and the slow decline of social democracy, we are looking into coming years of intense struggle with the state and capitalism. There are already many anarchists sitting in prisons for taking on this fight—forgotten or ignored by liberals and human rights NGOs for “violent” actions.
