Topic of the Week: Enemies, Rivals, Opponents, Inspiration

What is the purpose of enemies? What is the difference between enemies, rivals, and opponents (etc)? What is useful about them? How have they inspired you to be more who you want to be? How have they constrained your imagination?
How have you interacted with people who you disagree with, but are still in relationship with? What is the difference between disagreement and hate?

Starting with the introduction to this blog it has to be said that there will be no spectacularized commodification of its contents so as to make them products for adoption and justify its existence. Its existence stands on values of persons and not of ideologies. Inside the capitalist alienation of commodification of personalities and ideas the anarchist speech that intends to deconstruct all systems needs to be carefully used in its expression as not to fall into the trap of offering yet another product of civilisation.[...]

The Nedsbar timber sale in the southern Oregon Applegate Valley has been tree spiked.

The BLM's decision to go forward with this project is unacceptable, any company who bids on the logging of these trees should also consider itself a possible target of sabotage.

Reportback on a series of demonstrations this past thursday, September 16. From 6:30 in the morning, high school students were already throwing down. Some short reports are available here: http://www.streetpress.com/sujet/1473952695-lycee-loi-travail-black-bloc

At 11am, there was supposed to be a secret meetup with some high school groups at Nation square, but the cops found out about it: tons and tons of pigs all over the square. While some demonstrators got kettled, about 200 of us (mostly higschool students or youth) regrouped in front of Helene Boucher school on Cours de Vincennes and decided to take the metro to Lyon Station.

Paris: There will be no presidential election

A call to break with the electoral circus

(Translated from an anonymous leaflet distributed in the September 15th 2016 demo in Paris. All brackets are translators notes)

There has been much water under the bridge since the Socialist Party (Parti Socialiste, PS — party of French president Hollande) backed down from holding their summer congress in Nantes after a simple call to crash it. This came at the end of four months during which the movement against the “Work!” law (reform to the labour code) managed to dictate the terms and timeline of the debate. Four months during which the many attempts at concealing the real political questions of our present moment by launching the presidential campaign, with it’s clever catch phrases and insignificant revelations, were utterly rejected. It took the summer, the dead-time of the vacation season, and a few terrorist attacks to allow the elites to climb back into the saddle.

From Gods and Radicals - by Margaret Killjoy

Greece wasn’t really, technically, on fire. Most of it was just falling apart. This was 2011, and austerity measures had been hard at work for a few years already, gutting the economy, destroying lives, and driving half the population to xenophobia. There were a lot of anarchists in prison there, at that time. Well, always. But I was paying extra attention to it just then because I was on a ferry from Italy, heading to Greece for the first time in my life
