TOTW - An experiment with comments

Over the years this site has garnered a lot of criticism around the bad opinions of its users. As a platform for anarchist discussion this comes as no surprise. Of course it is disconcerting that some users confuse the opinions of anons with the opinions of the site but that is part of the price of hosting those opinions. During different moments, and with varying consistency, we have attempted to address this conundrum. On the one side the anon is the creator of almost all of the interesting content that has ever run through the comment section.

100 in Anarchist Years

The Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) has received applications for writing grants throughout various waves of organizing over the last two decades. From Zapatista solidarity organizers in the nineties, to anti-capitalist globalization activists in the early ‘00s, Occupy folks over the last several years, and most recently from those working under the banner of Black Lives Matter. In 1996, the IAS was established to do just that. The IAS has offered material support in the form of funds that allow people to take time off work or hire childcare, so they can devote time to reflection and writing.

Political Prisoner Birthday Poster for September 2016

Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for September.(11"x17" PDF, 359 KB) Print it out and plaster your community, both in commemoration of these freedom fighters and to advertise locally for a political prisoner letter writing night.Get together with some friends in your town to send birthday cards to these fighters in our struggle. It’s an easy way to help remind them that they aren’t forgotten. If you make one, remember—don’t use anything like white-out, stickers, tape or glitter on it. We also recommend that you put a return name and address and their name and prisoner number on the card, lest the authorities “lose” the envelope and forget where it is going. If you would like to add a birthday or sign up for our poster mailing list (not a listserv, one email per month), or if you would like to contribute in another way to increasing the profile of US political prisoners, email us at ppbirthday@riseup.net

Between 1st and 10th of July, international days of solidarity for political prisoners of Putin's police state took place in 22 cities of 10 different countries. Although state pressure is growing, new delirious "anti-terrorist" laws are passed instead of improving life of citizens, activists of Moscow Anarchist Black Cross, Autonomous Action and other anarchist and anti-fascist initiatives organized a wide international campaign to defend our comrades imprisoned in Putin's gallows.

From Seattle Times

The typical media stereotype of a Seattle anarchist is a young person wearing black, smashing windows at a May Day march and screaming at nearby journalists and police officers.

But the Anarchist Book Fair at Washington Hall last Saturday felt more like being among hundreds of Quakers, most of whom just happened to be wearing black.

At the Anarchists’ Convention, There’s Not Much Structure

From The Wall Street Journal

PRYAMUKHINO, Russia—If there is a natural place to bring anarchists to order, it’s around a crumbling mansion here, which is where Sergei Kornilov tries to do it every summer.

It is the historical family home of Mikhail Bakunin, the father of modern anarchism, who was born here in 1814 and whom Mr. Kornilov describes as “our inspiration, a candle for what could be a better life.”
