From Insurrection News
On Saturday, May 20, a large number of compañerxs gathered for The Day of Memory and Counter-Culture to remember Punky Mauri.
Representing the ‘Do It Yourself’ ethos, autonomy and self-organization, we nurtured with workshops and tools for the spread of both our ideas and our feelings.
We decided to destroy the complicity of university life as an act of memory, 8 years after the fall of the warrior Mauricio Morales following the detonation of an explosive device that was destined for the Prison Guards school.
My name is Mike. I live in a community that practices anarchy.
From Good Men Project
People smashing windows, burning police cars, looting businesses, running around dressed in black – wearing Guy Fawkes masks – creating chaos. These are the images that come to mind most commonly, when we think of anarchy. Who created this meaning of anarchy in our minds?
What follows is an exercise in the sharing of ideas, of visions. The most recent essay by the invisible committee, Now, continues a reflection-intervention that began with The Coming Insurrection and To Our Friends, and offers a powerful critique of contemporary politics, along with a defense of “autonomy”. What is proposed here then is a partial summary, and occasionally a commentary and exemplification, or simply a montage, of some of the ideas that animate their vision of our times.
#LongLiveTheRevolt #CaliInRebellion On May 25, there were strong protests and clashes with the police (ESMAD militarized police) at the Universidad del Valle (Univalle) in Cali, Colombia, in commemoration of Student Day and for various problems in the country, such as the civic stoppage of rural communities in Buenaventura, the civic strike in Chocó and the national work stoppage of the Colombian magisterium.
This is the first episode of FRR's new books podcast. Our goal is to discuss books(mostly fiction), especially where they intersect with our lives, nihilism, and anarchism. I(rydra) will be the most consistent host with a rotation of friends and others I find interesting broadcasting when we desire to. In this episode we discuss Milan Kundera's final novel, "The Festival of Insignificance." I began reading Kundera as a teenager and my fondness for him has only grown as I have slowly felt the effects of his writing, ideas, and brilliance sink into me over the years.
