A Look Into Month 3 and Beyond of the Portland Uprising with the Portland GDC

This week we got to sit down with two members of the Portland General Defense Committee, AC (they them) and Raoul (they he), about the ongoing Uprising in Portland OR in the months since the murder of George Floyd. We get to touch on a lot of topics in this interview; the neo-liberal whitewashing of the image of the city of Portland which masks a lot of ultra racist and colonial tendencies, personal timelines of engagement in the Uprising, and a lot of tips and tricks for newer and older anarchists and radicals for dealing with and anticipating state repression and violence.

Resisting: A New Legal Zine

Resisting: A New Legal Zine

From North Shore Counter-Info, Anonymous Submission to North Shore Counter-Info

RESISTING is a brand new legal resource for those fighting for collective liberation, and against systemic injustice and oppression while being subjected to Canadian colonial law.

From Anarchists Worldwide

Pavia Prison, Italy: Letter from Anarchist Comrade Beppe

I am writing to report a serious situation (yet another!) that I found myself facing between the afternoon of July 3rd and midnight of July 4th! As you will be aware, I have been locked up since about a year in a cell alone in the «protected» section [a section where are held ex-cops, infamous, pedophiles, rapists, etc.] of Pavia’s jail!, I have always refused such placement by putting in place various forms of struggle (hunger strike, air strike, etc.).

Learning From Portland

 Learning From Portland

by Black Flag Catalyst

My city: Portland, Oregon is currently under siege from an occupying force. Make no mistake in assuming the state will hesitate to occupy other cities with their militant, violent force, for less than reasonable reason(s). It’s spread to Columbus, Ohio, and Miami.

Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners in Tangerang and Bekasi, Indonesia

On April 9th, 2020, three of our comrades were arrested and convicted of a heavy crime for spraying several graffiti that say “_sudah krisis, saatnya membakar_” (there’s a crisis already, time to burn) and “_melawan atau mati konyol_” (fight or perish). What is actually a voice of rightful citizens is considered a crime of provocation. Their art is a valid criticisms toward the government’s lack of integrity in mitigating the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic and just a petty crime at most.

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.
