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

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.

Anarchic Thoughts on Our Fascist Situation
- The recent critique of violence and insurgency spoke nothing about the environment of competition and violence in which we are all raised.
- Occupy: “we have no enemies, it’s the system”…
- Paul Virilio: “…the history of humanity is the history of a lazy, wealthy and heavily militarized class attempting to exploit a mostly productive laboring class.” (paraphrase).
