New Project: Rise Like Lions
<table><tr><td>From <a href="http://riselikelions.info/">Rise Like Lions</a>
Rise Like Lions is an anarchist project with the aim to place beautiful and dangerous anarchist writing into the hands of the multitude. Our personal history is that of the lower class, the disposable class, and the texts that we select for publication are texts we wish had been put in our hands when we were young, full of hate and contempt for our jobs and society, and had no hope that another world was possible.
The texts we choose are texts that show that another world is possible, and that in fact, another world is <a href="http://riselikelions.info/articles/8/welcome-to-the-future-essays-on-cli..., for better or for worse. These texts promote and document the attack on a society that is dead to us, a society that would crush every hope and dream we have of living wild and free, a society that is fit to be destroyed.</td><td><img title="RAWR!" src="files/pictures/2009/lioncub.jpg"></td></tr></table><!--break-->
The pamphlets we create are meant to be placed into the hands of anyone that can identify with them: the workers, the drop-outs, those who are without, the dispossessed. They are to be handed out at community potlucks, anti-police rallies, social centers, and to be given to your friends, your neighbors, and your parents. This shit right here? This is for the proles on their strolls.
Though a good portion of the texts we choose to publish can be labeled as insurrectionary, we hesitate to label this project as such. We refuse any sort of dichotomy that would attempt to split the anarchist movement into different “factions” with essential characteristics, and we will never print any text that would promote a specific milieu at the expense of another. We recognize the necessity of both the daytime and the nighttime attack, the smashing of windows, the burning of cop cars, while also seeing the empowerment felt by communities coming together and organizing under a specific identity. Effective resistance and revolt can look radically different between differing geographical locations, circumstances, and cultures, and we choose to promote a complete diversity of tactics.
No war but social war!
