The Mohawked Salamanders Burn Down the Salamander’s School

The Mohawked Salamanders Burn Down the Salamander’s School

From en.squat.net, original from Attaque in French
Why We Attacked the Zad
Notre-Dame-des-Landes (France)

The Zad was our pirate ship, the mother of all Zads. It emerged in a time with no way out and it was as if the world became a little more bearable. Like a brief glimmer of light, a possibility breaking through the thick, sticky fog of our future. For those of us who lead full and busy lives, off the beaten track, it was the knowledge that there would always be a place to welcome us if we were on the run. A place where the state would never come for us. A place where we would always find allies to feed us, to clothe us, to hide us in the folds of its hedges.

Singular Substantive

Do we need a collective identity for subverting the Existent? Sometimes in the midst of a more or less large group, we get to lose sight of our own identity in favor of the collective identity. For many, the group is the only way to socialize, communicate, to confront ourselves, but within the group our conducts become ritualized, then we acquire a common language, and often we end up identifying to the group itself.
