The Mohawked Salamanders Burn Down the Salamander’s School

The Mohawked Salamanders Burn Down the Salamander’s School

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.

Father Frost Against is now Feast After Plague

TAZ!

From avtonom.org

Festival will be organised in Helsinki from 11th to 14th of June. 
The modern situation requires a change in the aesthetic and conceptual forms of expressing the real. Another incentive to rethink representation and tactics was the pandemic and macro-political vulnerability, rallies and waves of new political repression in Russia and Belarus, which affected all aspects of our life. After the worldwide "apocalypse", we will meet under a new slogan - "Feast After the Plague".

Welcome to Father Frost Against 2021 - festival

Welcome to Father Frost Against 2021 - festival

From Avtonom, Finland

Please note that because of border closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival will most likely be postponed to the spring or summer of 2021, and held under a different name. The new festival date will be announced no later than December 1. On December 1, we will share information about how to apply for a Finnish visa and crossing the border.

As of now: From 7 to 9 of January, in Helsinki, the annual cultural and political festival "Father Frost against" will take place. Here, on a politically neutral territory, we together (organizers / participants / guests) will create a temporary autonomous zone free from hierarchical forms of interaction and discrimination. The festival is organized by local activists, as well as participants from various horizontal initiatives, libertarian, left-oriented and anarchist communities in Russia and the post-Soviet area.

CHOP Analysis: Glimmers of Hope, Failures of the Left

CHOP Analysis: Glimmers of Hope, Failures of the Left

From Black Rose Anarchist Federation

Out of the national uprising in protest of the racist police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis emerged a movement occupied space of 8-10 blocks in the Seattle neighborhood of Capitol Hill. The space began “as an accident” when on the evening of June 7 a man drove drove into the protests and shot a demonstrator. Quickly the crowds set up barricades at several intersections and an occupy style encampment emerged as the the mayor ordered the evacuation of the East Precinct police statement encompassed within the zone. Originally deemed the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) the space was soon renamed Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) and remained in place until July 1 when Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan ordered police to clear out the space after a series of late night shootings. Written in late July 2020, this critical analysis piece was based on discussions and experiences of our Seattle Black Rose/Rosa Negra comrades. 

Get In the Zone: A Report from the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle

From IGD

The following is an interview with a Seattle resident who has been out on the streets during the recent uprising and watched as both vigilantes, police, and the National Guard have attacked protesters in the Capital Hill neighborhood. Now, after over a week of intense rioting and clashes with the authorities, Seattle police have evacuated from their East precinct and an autonomous zone has sprung up around the empty building. Wanting to know more about what all is going down, we caught up to discuss how the last week and a half has played out on the streets.
