TOTW: Solarpunk Anarchism

What can you burn that is somehow related to this topic?

Topic of the Week: The sun still rises and with it a new conversation is shared over the wires. Over the years, here at Anarchist News we have posted topics discussing various tendencies within the anarchist space and this week we are talking about a rather new set of ideas on the block (but also old) related to solarpunk anarchy.

Greening Anarchism

pupperz = anti-civ zoomies camp

From Cindy Milstein WordPress by Cindy Milstein

My dear friend and mensch #MurrayBookchin would turn over in his grave if he heard me say this, but between, in particular, this summer’s capitalist-fueled fires, floods, droughts, heat waves, tornadoes, and other “new normal” extreme and deadly weather catastrophes, and today’s “late to the end-of-the-world party” UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, we need a renewed #GreenAnarchism.

Identity Politics on Immediatism Podcast

Enjoy these nine episodes on identity and critiques of identity. Lupus Dragonowl discusses the politics of affect and suggests exodus versus submersion in identities. Locating a Green and Pink Anarchy, by Artxmis Graham Thoreau, is a newer essay to The Anarchist Library. Lawrence Jarach provides a number of excellent jumping-off points for a study group discussion. Neal Keating looks at race as a fiction. Andy Robinson critiques ethnicity as social control, and this essay was included in AJODA #62.

No Whistling In The Atlanta Forest: A Communique

four construction vehicles with broken windows, one of them is nothing but charred remains, and next to it is another charred vehicle

This is a story about a couple of queers who gathered last night to reject destruction in the name of profit and power and to destroy the machinery of the nefarious polities that have defiled the Atlanta Forest. We have deep respect and regard for acknowledging that this is Muskogee land and was the site of horrific abuses, of displacement, chattel slavery, and prison slavery.

Night Forest Journal Issue 3

is this what anarchist poetry looks like in 2k21?

Originally published here - https://nightforestpoetry.wordpress.com/2021/04/24/night-forest-journal-...

The world has been a strange place since the release of the second issue of our journal. This strange quality has permeated near all aspects of civilisation, in more ways than we could articulate here. In a very long book, the philosopher Schopenhauer described poetry as being greater than history, as history can only account for a generalised description of the world (re-presented at a distance), while poetry articulates the experience of living in a moment, as the experiencer seeks to express ir. So, while these words are not a generalised totalising narrative of the experience of being in the world, they are expressions that these individuals wished to articulate, of their experience of this strange world.

The Dark Mountain Manifesto on Immediatism Podcast

"It is, it seems, our civilisation's turn to experience the inrush of the savage and the unseen; our turn to be brought up short by contact with untamed reality. There is a fall coming. We live in an age in which familiar restraints are being kicked away, and foundations snatched from under us. After a quarter century of complacency, in which we were invited to believe in bubbles that would never burst, prices that would never fall, the end of history, the crude repackaging of the triumphalism of Conrad's Victorian twilight -- Hubris has been introduced to Nemesis.

Cracks In a Grey Sky, on Immediatism Podcast

This is an anthology of Do or Die: Voices from the Ecological Resistance, which ran in UK. It includes nearly 3 dozen texts on direct action, biodiversity, tribalism, sabotage, and EF!, and runs to 400+ pages in length. Immediatism episodes recorded so far include the introductory essay, A Letter From Scotland, Biodiversity & the British Isles, The New Luddite War, and The Four Tasks, which is the longer and perhaps most relevant part these days of the iconic text Down With the Empire, Up With the Spring!

Beyond The Dark Horizon Volume 2 released

From Beyond the Dark Horizon

A publication of green anarchist art, poetry, stories, rants from 'so called-Australia'

"We are in a new epoch of breakdown what will it mean to not have a horizon ... to have no map of how act ... to have only shifting sands to cling to and be in a world radically different than that of the last 10000+ years? What does green anarchy mean today."

Permanent Subsistence Zones on Immediatism Podcast

"I am not aiming for relationships that always exclude any degree of sedentariness any more than I am aiming for an obligatory sedentariness.... The village isn't a stage on a downhill momentum toward urban life. The net and song and mask aren't first steps on a path toward rank and privilege, environmental degradation or ever increasing degrees of mediated lives. They are merely the outcome of sensual wisdom, of embeddedness, of organic life ways. In this sense my destination is primarily toward small villages and seasonal camps." ~Seaweed in Permanent Subsistence Zones

TOTW: Anarchist responses to climate change

PLZ, NO DIVING

The effects of extreme climate change, such as heatwaves, flooding, wildfires, and rising sea levels to name just a few are not confined to borders, nor the daily news headlines, but an experience many have come to expect. Breaking away from the false solutions of the State and corporate enterprises, how are anarchists reorganizing society in response to climate change?

Repression, eviction and dispossession in Greece

From Roar

Dimitris Indares was still in his pyjamas when the police knocked on his door in the neighborhood of Koukaki, in Athens, in the early hours of Wednesday, December 18. Not long after that, he was lying down on the floor of his home’s terrace, with a Special Operations policeman’s boot on his head. He and his two adult sons were beaten up, handcuffed, blindfolded and taken under police custody. What was Indares’ crime? He had refused to let the police go through his home without a warrant in its operation to evict the squat that was right next door.

Wild Insurgency TOTW: Anarchist defeatism

From Wild Insurgency:

“Dual power” was a term used by the Bolsheviks to describe the political situation in Russia following the February Revolution. This upheaval came to a tee between March 8th and 16th, 1917. Lenin, an enemy of anarchists of the day, suggested that as the dominant institutions of Eastern Europe would increasingly continue to fail, individual citizens of nations would be left more and more without a social safety net. Essentially, he predicted a situation where more and more people of all classes and castes would be forced to fend for themselves.
