Prisoners at Tabor Correctional Institution recently began organizing a multiracial group on the inside called the Brotherhood. Their first statement of purpose, which can be found at prisonbooks.info, says the group is “an organization and movement of revolutionary and conscious men and women who undergo oppression, racism, injustices, and inequality by the government and people of this society.

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).

An ugly precedent has been set by the episode of crude authoritarian behavior at the 2014 SF Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair. The screaming, the threats of harm, the physical intimidation directed at us personally, as well as the vandalizing of the books and magazines on the CAL Press/Anarchy magazine table by a dozen or so people associated with the Quilombo social center was out of line.

I'd like to think that the term anarchy will continue to evolve, grow, and transform to integrate ever more complexity and thus continue to find relevancy in the larger culture. Hopefully, it will create more space for people to engage with it in ever more complex ways that don't dilute it but rather weave ever more channels of access into it, creating ever more opportunities for creative collaboration and interdependence.

What was noteworthy in and of itself was that the six panelists were all people of color–a rare event given that anarchism in the Bay Area seems (on the surface at least) to be dominated by White people. I don’t think I remember ever attending an event related to anarchism in the Bay Area that was lead entirely by people of color. The audience was also very large–at least a hundred people, if not more.

From Anarchy Live!
I’m Michael and yes, I’m locked down in one of Amerika’s many prisons in the state of Alabama. But that does not excuse me from the struggle for a better world. And I believe that anarchism is the best alternative to what exists now. I believe this without reservations. Anarchism is not about building state power, but rather, destroying the state and building new humyn relationships based on mutual aid and cooperation and freedom.
I’m not a public speaker, but a warrior in the struggle to build that new humyn relationship, mutual aid, cooperation, and freedom from all coercive power, rather than a soldier, because a soldier is someone who is ordered about without thinking for him/herself in a hierarchical structure. A tool of a ruling power.
Right now there is a struggle going on in Alabama’s prisons demanding a change in the horrendous, unsanitary, and inhumane conditions in the prisons.
