Announcing: The Northeastern Young Anarchists Network (NYAN)

NYAN: A meme project thoroughly committed to not being taken seriously.

from Center for a Stateless Society

It is with great excitement that I announce the formation of the Northeastern Young Anarchists Network. Formed by libertarian socialist members of several broadly leftist student activism groups on college campuses in the American northeast, NYAN (yes, like that nyan) seeks to be a lateral connecting point between anti-authoritarian leftists to discuss the finer points of anarchist theory and debate without the feeling that we must necessarily band together homogeneously to debate or counter authoritarian leftist views within activism groups. We represent a broad range of ideologies ranging from anarcho-communism to communalism to left-libertarianism to what Nathan Schneider identifies as “anarcho-curiosity” and beyond.

Examining the pro-state problem of American anarchists

from Rhyd Wildermuth

For any anti-capitalist and anti-state leftist who has been in this thing for longer than a decade, the last few days of social media has been kind of a trip. In only my short self-imposed allotment of weekly social media time (90 minutes, up from a fasting diet of only 30 minutes a week), I’ve encountered more apparent insanity than I think I had in the last six months, all of it about the “terrorists” and “fascist threat” of the idiots who interrupted congress last week.

Response to the week of revenge for comrade Michael Forest Reinoehl

Communique to the fighting comrades in so called america, from anarchist Dimitris Chatzivasileiadis, persecuted* for his relation to the guerrilla Organization of Revolutionary Self-Defense

The planned state murder of comrade Michael Forest Reinoehl reinforces our hatred towards the world of authority. In the greek territory, during the last period of bourgeois democracy, we have often experienced personified state executions by order of the authorities. From doctor Tsironis on July 11th 1978, to Michalis Prekas on 1st of October 1987 and Cristoforos Marinos on the 23rd of July 1996. Just as the greek state intended by murdering these fighters, so did the colonial state called USA, on the 3rd of September, aim to send to all the insurgents the message that nobody can surpass the iron law of the rulers’ military domination. We ought to pause for thought on these crucial matters born out of the state’s willingness to commit political murders. Such moments determine the evolution of the social movement for long periods of time.

11 Arguments Against Protest Conspiracies

From The Tower

We’ve seen a lot of people on social media spreading rumours and sharing conspiracy theories about the uprising currently going on South of the border. These might be rumours about potential white supremacist attacks and interventions or conspiracies about police agents being responsible for violence carried out by protestors. This kind of online behaviour is harmful and undermines the movements you’re probably trying to support, and we thought we’d take a minute to break down why we should collectively push back against this trend.
