From Modern Slavery - by Paul Z Simons
So after sitting on the fence for the better part of a year, I have to commit to support for and defense of the Rojava experiment, and particularly our comrades in the DAF (Revolutionary Anarchist Action) and the two militias the YPG (People’s Protection Units, in Kurdish: Yekîneyên Parastina Gel) and the women’s militia component the YPJ (Women’s Protection Units, in Kurdish: Yekîneyên Parastina Jinê). Though inspired, at least according to most reports by Bookchin and specifically calling their current political status libertarian municipalism, they seem to have moved very far toward an insurrectionary society indeed.

My sentence to nine months in jail in conjunction with a withheld felony sentence, amounting to 15 years in prison if I “step out of line” in the eyes of the “state,” was a harsh and classist attack on my beliefs and lifestyle. Judge Fox strives to kill my spirit by burying me in a dying urban hole, and desires that I refrain from involvement in the anti-resource extraction struggle; I refuse to be “killed,” and I refuse the idea of coerced complacency.

Anarchapulco is the first international anarchist/anarcho-capitalist conference of its type and will be held in the freest city in North America, Acapulco, Mexico from February 24th to March 1st, 2015 at the Copacabana Hotel on the beach. Our vision is to take freedom and anarchy to the next level and that means holding events in much freer areas like Acapulco. The event will be a mix of music, speakers, panels, parties and educational opportunities including an entrepreneurship bootcamp hosted by Exosphere to help prepare the next generation of ancaps, Luke Rudkowski’s “Change Media University” and Dayna Martin’s workshop on peaceful parenting and unschooling.

For some time there has been a simmering animosity amongst many Pittsburgh anarchists towards the study/activist group Whats Up (Working and Healing to Abolish Total Supremacy Undermining Privilege), that has until now remained mostly silent. With Whats Up moving into the spotlight for instigating and promoting the Pittsburgh Police Chief Cameron MccLay holding a sign promising to "challenge racism at work", we can no longer stay inactive in what we perceive to be an approach which is foolish and harmful.

There has been an effort by scholars and organizers alike over the last forty years to segregate anarcho-syndicalism from the rest of the broad anarchist movement. The labor movement dominated social struggles in the first half of the twentieth century, but as large business union bureaucracies were formed and new shop organizing began to diminish, the participation of anarchists in labor began to wane as community struggles around environmental issues, LGBT and women’s struggles, and housing justice took precedence. The syndicalist strategies that defined the earlier successes of anarchism internationally diminished to only the most hardcore adherents of a labor strategy, though these ideas have had spikes during periods of economic crisis.
