BITING BACK! A Radical Response to Non-Vegan Anarchists

While there are certainly a number of radicals who recognize the oppression of non-human animals and are fighting against it, we continue to see non-human animals offered as food items at many radical potlucks, bookfairs, and other anarchist gatherings. We believe this is a hierarchical form of oppression worthy of a much needed anarchist critique.

This short essay will attempt to address some of the most common anarchist objections to veganism. We aim to inspire a praxis of insurrectionary anarchy and eco-defense by asserting a position against speciesism and the objectification of non-human animals.

Several months have passed since the Wildfire Cell (at the end of its previous phase) signed its last communique, and while we do not give any “justifications” for our motives, we feel it is worthwhile to point out that we have maintained this period of silence for purely strategic reasons.

Remembering the 2013 Indiana University Strike

From Plain Words

After months of build-up and preparation, hundreds of students, campus employees, and city residents went on strike at Indiana University on April 11 – 12, 2013. A number of things are interesting about this struggle from an anti-authoritarian perspective, including a heightened focus on collective action as a way of building power, and a dismissal of dialogue with the administration as unimportant and distracting.

From Avalanche- #11, July 2017 (anarchist correspondence)

To be in conflict with power doesn’t mean to be gene­ rally hostile towards power. The hostility towards power begins with scepticism – the scepticism questioning its existence and necessity. A rational matter, on the one hand, which persuades us to develop rational analy­ses about the functioning and transformations of pow­ er. Although purely abstract, whereas the putting into practice of our hostilities towards power also means to move on to speaking about oneself and about conside­ring one’s own life as the field of projection for the own ideas. An irrational matter, on the other hand, a mat­ ter of heart, a matter of acting, an individual moment of rupture. A rupture, which overcomes the passive attitu­de of scepticism and creates by means of the own ideas and comrades projects that are attempting to push the hostility towards power in the direction of a permanent revolt and a generalised rupture with authority.

Taking Rewilding Seriously

From The Dark Mountain Project by John Jacobi

Rewilding has become something of a fad. The internet and libraries are chock full of instruction manuals for using primitive medicine, making primitive tools, adopting primitive religious thought… Often attached are calls to ‘awaken our inner primal spirit.’ This seems like rewilding, right?
