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.

From Support Joel:
---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.

Disruptive Elements: The Extremes of French Anarchism
Ardent Press, 2014
"Tant pis pour ceux qui souffrent et n’osent pas prêcher l’extermination et l’incendie!"
Most history worth bothering with shakes things up. This is particularly true of radical history, and of that branch of radical history that involves rediscovering and re-presenting primary works from various radical currents. Sometimes, the shake-ups are comparatively pleasant, and we find, unexpectedly, that we have inherited marvelous gems, glimpses into the personalities and practices of those who came before us.

In January of 2014, the Holdout temporarily closed its doors to do some serious cleaning. Now that the space has gone through several transitions, it’s time to reopen as a radical social center that supports community in struggle–with new energy and a new name.
