From Lundi Matin

"Little by little, the 'question of violence' appears for what it is: a diversion."

Since the events of April 9th and the wild week that followed, the Nuit Debout (Rise Up At Night) assembly put the question of violence at the center of debate. While citizens persist in their rigorous pacifism, stances in favor of the "diversity of tactics" are multiplying. The National Student Coordination itself has explicitly refused dissociation between rioters and demonstrators.

28.4. around 3 pm, riot cops and a police patrol with dogs started to approach the camp. We communicated clearly to the police with a megaphone that they are not welcome, and we don’t want to engage in conflict with them. The police didn’t say anything or answer any questions.

On the 20th of April starts the second grade trial not only for the C.C.F. Case and some of its actions, but also for some other different cases of anarchists accused for actions of revolutionary violence. All these cases were attached to each other in a single trial, in order to serve many different and parallel judiciary manipulations against all those accused.

March 39 and counting… Nuit Debout and the new French uprising

The spirit of resistance has captured the imagination of a new generation in France, as youth-led opposition to neoliberal labour “reforms” has spiralled into full-on rejection of the whole capitalist system on the street and squares.

The situation took on a new dimension after the general strike and day of action on Thursday March 31. There was a call for people not to go home afterwards but to stay on the streets, beginning a wave of overnight “Nuit Debout” occupations that has spread from Paris across France and into the Iberian peninsular, Belgium and Germany.

Siberia, Russia

Someone once said, “You can't take words into space” but they must have never met this cadre of self-proclaimed anarchists from Siberia. Somewhere in the sparsely populated polar deserts of the region, a group of anarchists have recently completed their endeavor, building a space ship meant to launch a book into the far off galaxies of the universe.

We ought to share some observations, because in the
management of judicial cases that concern the actions of the
organization as a whole as well as other joined cases, the state
authorities use a series of legal tactics. We think that it is somewhat
important to submit the experience that has been gained after 5 years of
us continuously being in a judicial process, convicted and indicted at
the same time.

AGAINST THE WAR IN LIBYA

LET’S JAM THE WAR MACHINE
War is no longer declared: it is simply there. Since 1991 the Italian State has been at war with its troops deployed in over 20 countries and its participation in all the most prominent ‘international missions’.
Renzi’s government is now getting ready to attack Libya with the purpose of lining up the army in defence of ENI oilfields and gas pipes.

Dispatches from Brazil Two: The Pot Comes to a Boil, Many Demos, and Is There Any Right Left?

(São Paulo, Brazil) The orange halogen glow of the lamps in the courtyard at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica (PUC) makes the air seem denser and more humid than it really is. I had been asked by an anarchist group (Nu-Sol) to present on my experiences in Rojava and was about halfway through the evening…

“ So the YPG has a 45 day training protocol…” Then a series of deafening, wrenching explosions tore through the courtyard like thunder. I stopped for an instant, regrouped and continued.
