Last year, in the spirit of rising anarchist resistance, and to honour our fallen comrades from the past, we organized the first Comox Valley Anarchist Book Fair for one day on the weekend immediately following May Day. Once again, the book fair will be hosted on May Day weekend in Cumberland (a small village in Comox Valley that was one of the major sites of the largest labour revolt in BC history).

"I am a hacker within the system,” Birgitta Jónsdóttir tells me. “I am analyzing it, trying to see how it works, in order to make an informed assessment if it is possible to change it from within.”
An Icelandic Parliamentarian with the Pirate Party, Birgitta co-produced the famous Wikileaks video, Collateral Murder, with Julian Assange in 2009 during her first term as an MP with The Movement party.

As the radical, insurrectionary affirmation of self, egoism is a direct and hostile challenge to politics, society, civilization, and economics. Unlike the various philosophical identifications and ideologies that it challenges, it is no pretender to the thrones of any mode of thought based upon duty or obligation, no attempt to place itself above or outside of the unique one. We may say, then, that egoism contemplates only an end to self-alienation, yet even then we say too much; egoism is not a volitional unit capable of wanting anything at all.

Daily life in San Francisco frequently involves bearing witness to yet another suddenly-shuttered local business, mostly the ones that don’t worry so much about their looks, but instead are packed to the brim with everyday things, the urban version of a subsistence economy that’s long fed lives and cultures.
In the Tenderloin, word has it that some new municipal ordinance or regulation (or whim of city officials and police?) requires that everyone be able to see at least four feet into a business through its front windows. The rationale one hears is that corner stores with their mostly covered-over glass are fronts for drug dealing, which is likely true on occasion.

The news link contains photos of the vandalism.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — At least four Albuquerque Police Department substations were vandalized overnight.
Bright red paint was splattered and spayed across police signs, windows and sidewalks.
City crews spent much of the day cleaning up the mess.

From NYC Antifa (with pictures):
A caravan of NYC activists –in solidarity with immigration resistance– rode in “Ride for Freedom: an Anti-deportation Internationalist motorcade”, to arrive to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Detention Facility at 182-22 150 Avenue, Queens, NY for a noise demonstration.

---Penetang, Home Sweet Home---
March 5, 2014
Early this morning I was told to collect my possessions for my transfer to Central North Correctional Center in Penetanguishene, Ontario. When my name was called I said my goodbyes to the guys on my range. It’s only been three weeks but I’ve definitely established some friendships. I will miss many of the people I’ve met.

I'm writing this to contribute to the discussion surrounding Lawrence's comments at an anarchist assembly in Oakland, and in order to put to the rest a particular trajectory of this debate about race. I'm deploying my so-called authoritative voice, my performance of authorship and patriarchy, as “Liam Sionnach,” the fact that I was “there,” and sided with my friend (because I am taken by friendship), in order to speak with more weight than others, and—like many of the anarchists playing at being writers—for the excuse to practice writing, and essentially hear my own voice.
