You'll always be with us, Joan

You'll always be with us, Joan

from alasbarricadas.org

This past Thursday, June 17, our friend and comrade Joan Liébana (1991-2021) lost his life while working as a firefighter in an machine shop in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona). For those who did not have the privilege of knowing him, we don’t have words that could express all that he was, as a friend and as an anarchist, but even then we still want to carry out an act of remembrance from the place of the struggle and the anarchist spirit which impregnated him.

Governance in Pirate Societies

We command honest men’s adoration.

How Cost-Benefit Considerations Produced “Progressive” Governance in Pirate Societies

by Emile Phaneuf

Without economics, Leeson writes, pirates are “sadistic pacifists; womanizing homosexuals; treasure-lusting socialists; and madmen who outwitted the authorities. They’re stealthy outlaws who loudly announced their presence with flags of skulls and bones. They’re libertarians who conscripted nearly all their members, democrats with dictatorial captains, and lawless anarchists who lived by a strict code of rules. They’re torturous terrorists who command honest men’s adoration.”

Equality and freedom are not to be debated!

International anarchist statement on the 52nd anniversary of the Stonewall-Riots

Pride marches as they now exist in many cities around the world every June, commemorate the Stonewall riots and serve to defend the rights of all people who do not fit into the narrow confines of cis-heterosexuality that the reactionaries would like to impose as a universal norm. Unfortunately, we also commemorate this year the 5th anniversary of the Orlando attack, a mass homophobic, transphobic and racist shooting that took the lives of 49 people and left 59 injured in the United States. The fight is far from being over, as the violence against queer people increases in many countries. Fighting against queerphobia is fighting against mass violence. It is a necessity!

A Critical Analysis of the 2020 Revolt against the Dictatorship

In August 2020, a revolt broke out in Belarus, nearly toppling Alexander Lukashenko, the dictator who has ruled the country since 1994. In the following analysis, anarchists who participated in the revolt discuss the ways that it succeeded and how both the regime and its liberal opposition were able to undermine the movement before it could topple the dictatorship. The result is an invaluable resource for those seeking to understand the mechanics of revolution, repression, and cooptation, not to mention post-Soviet politics in the region.
