Environmental activists have been taking more risks in attacking the root causes of climate change. From the #ShellNo protests in Seattle to the recent lock-down In Bellingham, WA where activists chained themselves to a #ShellOil support vessel set to leave the marine waters for Alaska oil drilling, direct action in the Pacific Northwest is alive and well.

Thanks for picking up the third volume of Mortar, Common Cause’s journal of revolutionary anarchist theory. In our two previous journals, the article topics that we chose to explore and expound upon were, more often than not, grounded in our own direct experiences, such as organizing in our neighbourhoods against gentrification, navigating the dynamics of Left/activist spaces, and confronting sexual violence.

From The Implicit & Experiential Rantings of a Person
There has been an ongoing debate, or controversy (depending on one's frame of mind), that I have been aware of pretty much the entire time that I have been an anarchist, and at various points it has even had some big effects on my own life. I am referring here to the infamous debate between the “anarcho-capitalists” and the “regular” anti-capitalist anarchists.

From Modern Slavery
In the 1979 robbery of Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg – a square in Stockholm, Sweden – several bank employees were held hostage in the bank vault for most of a week during which time they began to increasingly identify with their captors. While their captors were under seige by police, the hostages went on to reject assistance from government agents. And after the captors were themselves captured by police the former hostages defended them. This example of abused victims becoming emotionally attached to their captors has since become widely known as the Stockholm Syndrome. It has been widely reported, studied and theorized to the point where it has nearly become a sociological cliché.

Replies to anti-civ critiques of veganism
It’s impossible to be vegan because it’s impossible to totally refrain from harming other life.
