Call me old fashion but I think that anarchism and DIY culture go hand-in-hand. I think that Common Ground, whatever it's faults (and of course there are many and they have been well documented), was the correct response to the reality that Katrina exposed. We are now being exposed to this same dramatic reality week after week. 8.2 earthquakes, multiple hurricanes this year, it doesn't seem to be slowing down.
This is a The Final Straw Radio mini-episode and we just had a quick conversation with Assata, an activist and member of The Yellow Hammer Alternative, an Alabama-based far left autonomous mutual aid group. We talked about relief work done by Assata’s group around Hurricane Harvey, in Mobile with Food Not Bombs and in the run-up to Hurricanes Irma and Jose. More about Assata’s group can be found at theyellowhammeralternative.com and you can make donations to their and others efforts in the gulf at https://www.youcaring.com/theyellowhammeralternative
A tabler for Little Black Cart and an associate violently attacked two anarchists after being confronted about their decision to publish Atassa: Readings in Eco-Extremism.
At the Seattle Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday, August 26, several anarchists confronted Little Black Cart about their decision to publish and distribute Atassa: Readings in Eco-Extremism. For those unfamiliar, eco-extremism is an anti-political tendency that arose in Mexico around 2011 with the group Individualists Tending Towards the Wild, or ITS, and has since morphed and spread to other areas.
