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.

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.

A Message to Anarchists in Belarus from the ‘Anarchist Fighter’ Website
