For better or for worse the Internet has become an essential tool for communicating among anarchists. Traditionally anarchists have relied on face-to-face interactions and local social centres to build trust and solidarity. Yet, our communities are now sparse and spread thin. Aside from the obvious security concerns due to infiltration when we are involved with the “struggle” there is no popular alternative to the ritual of establishing rapport in localized ways.

It’s going to be a hot summer.

Not only in the sense that it will be one of the hottest on record, but it will also be the first summer under the new Trump regime. The first under Sheriff Clarke’s Department of Homeland Security, the first under Jeff Session’s calls for a revamped drug war, mass incarceration, mass roundups, and deportations, as well as the ongoing economic, health, environmental, and social crisis.

On the 7th and 8th of July 2017, when the most successful war criminals of the present, the most unscrupulous sweaters of human and nature, the self-titled leaders of this planet, meet in Hamburg, they will not be confronted and thus be revaluated with some demands for better governance or social enslavement.

June 11th, International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners, is less than a month away. Montreal will be participating by having a board-game night featuring an Earth Liberation Front edition of Clue! (June 11, La Deferle, 7 pm – check here for more info soon)

Forest Friends: Get (A) Clue! is a game where players try to figure out the three main facts of an attack against Industrial Civilization: the attacker (animal), the location of the attack, and the weapon used in the attack. We do this so that the animal can be celebrated by all of their fellow forest friends (because there are no forest cops who want to imprison these comrades for their brave actions in this imaginary world).

A recipe for nocturnal direct actions!

From Montreal Counter-Information

We believe that the greatest barriers to participating in direct actions are social ones: finding comrades to build affinity groups takes time, patience, and trust (see How to Form an Affinity Group: The Essential Building Block of Anarchist Organization). This recipe assumes that you already have people who you can get mischievous with.

Before we had ever done a night-time direct action, we felt hesitant to begin. We had no one to teach us the basics, and feared making stupid, easily preventable mistakes. For that reason, we want to share several logistical tips that we feel may be helpful in carrying out these actions.
