Summary
What do anarchists around the world think is in store for the new year? In Episode 45
, we began our 2015 year in review, focusing on the US. In this episode, we share reflections on developments in 2015 and from anarchists in Chile,Finland, Brazil, Korea, Colombia, Czech Republic, and Rojava. There are also discussions about developments in fascism and anti-fascism, with reports from the UK and Australia, and an analysis by Gulf Coast anarchists of the environmental movement’s supposed “victory” over the Keystone XL pipeline in November. On the Chopping Block, we review the latest issue of Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, the journal of the Institute for Anarchist Studies, on the theme of “Justice.” Long term black liberation political prisoner Herman Bell discusses his upcoming parole hearing, and we share plenty of news, including some reflection on a new round of revolts in Tunisia, plus prisoner birthdays, events, listener feedback, and more. {February 11, 2016}

This is a good fucking episode in my book. Stories from all over the world, so much information I have no idea where they get it all for one project. If I have a criticism, I guess it is that I wish they would include a little more from the US. In all their perspectives about what to expect this year, if there's anything stateside I missed it.

What to expect this year stateside: more podcasts, hipster nihilism, comments on the internet and a fully fleshed out thesis on strugglismo.

You forgot to mention the number of piercings and tattoos above the waist or shoulders, but otherwise, yep.

Where do you live that piercings and tattoos are a relevant thing to make fun of anarchists for? 2001?

Scarsdale village NY. Whats that got to do with anything?

Do we have to purchase something again like the crosswood book to support Ex-Workers non expendable income and millionaire lifestyle?

How dare anyone do projects?

Excellent review of Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, the journal of the Institute for Anarchist Studies. It was refreshing to see anarchists critically engaging each others' work in a comradely fashion, recognizing good, solid work. Well done!

Yeah, that's why I listen to the brilliant... just kidding!!!!
