Water, freedom & anarchic mythologies

I want my anarchy to be like the Hamper of Gwyddno Garanhir and the Horn of Bran Galed. The hamper multiplied a hundredfold whatever food was placed inside it while the Horn is said to have possessed the magical property of ensuring that "whatever drink might be wished for was found in it".

Vetriolo Issue 5 is out

Italy – Issue 5 of the anarchist paper Vetriolo is out – Special mural edition September 2020

Issue 5 of the anarchist paper Vetriolo is coming out in a new mural, online and paper edition. Our decision doesn’t mean a permanent editorial change in respect to the usual long critical, topical and theoretical analyses. Vetriolo will probably go back to its usual format. The choice of a mural edition was made during the months of mass imprisonment imposed by the State with the pretext of the Coronavirus emergency. In recent months we have felt the need for a form of communication that could break the distancing that the authorities want to put between us all.

Camps are for burning

Camps are for burning… [Poster]Athens,Greece

Inhabitants of the Moria refugee hell on the Island of Lesbos recently
gave the most honest and firm response to the war that is waged against them by the European states. Arson within the camp caused two nights of fires finally leading to its total destruction. Faced with prison conditions some chose for a direct and non-negotiated attack. In Moria a completely unbearable situation was all these years imposed as normality by those in power. Intimidation was part of its management.

The one spectacle that continues despite viruses and lockdowns

Belgium: ‘The one spectacle that continues despite viruses and lockdowns’

While the cultural sector is still debating social distancing restrictions with whatever politician appears to be in charge, one venue keeps on hosting its spectacles in spite of everyone. So we are disgusted to announce to you the upcoming theatrical performance taking place on the 8th and 9th of October 2020 in the Palais de Justice in Brussels (that Moloch built on top of the proletarian Marolles and adored by many authoritarians for its oppressive bombast).

Expropriation and attack

from Magpie Project via email

I support The Maggpie project. Department stores are warehouses where I go to take the things I need. I don’t use money. I took these things for free last week: Food, coffee, clothing, rechargeable batteries, shaving machines, headlamps, tools, colors for graffiti and coffee pot.

Who do the passionate communards work for?

"I will then become a worker: such is the idea that stops me, when the mad rages push me towards the battle of Paris - where, however, so many workers continue to die while I write to you! Work now, never again." 1 Rimbaud

Since 1871 - the year in which the "accursed poet" wrote this letter - it was not necessary to be a "seer" to see the obvious: the masses of workers who fought on the barricades in Paris continued to work. That "wildcat strike" in front of the Versailles authority was, in turn, a new job that produced new obligations and condemned them to perpetuate work in saecula saeculorum. Such deep reflection, in the midst of a necromancing trance, probably prompted Rimbaud to question: who were the passionate communards working for? prophesying a system of domination based on direct democracy as the axis of political-social management, which ensured the permanence of authority and continuity of work.

Backwoods 3: Call for submissions

Backwoods, volume 3 - call for submissions

It has been our great pleasure to renew and recreate Backwoods as a new editorial team, after unexpected life circumstances unrelated to the project caused two among the first group of editors to leave the journal one at a time after the first two issues. The new group has made a joint decision to release larger (150 - 250-page) volumes on an irregular schedule, whenever we have a suite of content with which we are happy.

Gender and Classes

from incendo.noblogs.org

Incendo was a communist magazine and a group based in Avignon, in south-eastern France, active from 2007 to 2012. It published five issues of this journal and, at the end, a special « Gender and Classes » issue which included several articles on domestic work, the family or the French women liberation movement in the 1970’s. This first article, extracted from this issue, was presented as follows: “This text presents the current state of our reflections on the question of the relationship between genres genders and classes. It is also an attempt to synthesize the other articles and texts of this issue of Incendo. It therefore has nothing static or definitive and should be seen as a contribution to a necessary debate.”. Debate indeed there was. The paper version of this text circulated a lot in France in 2012, mainly in anarchist, ultra-left or autonomous circles, which triggered lively debate, much controversy, and resulted in responses being written. Here is the first English translation.
