At a time when voters were getting ready to hand over their dignity to the ballot boxes by delegating the administration of their lives to the country’s political staff, an incendiary cell of the Informal Anarchist Federation went on the offensive, thus wanting to contribute to an intensification of antidemocratic deviation… We placed an incendiary device at the bookstore of [New Democracy party’s MP] Adonis Georgiadis in the district of Kifissia [in Athens on January 22nd, 2015]. The property and enterprises of politicians are also in our sights, as much as their physical integrity is.

Come to the Opening of the European Central Bank! | Frankfurt 2015
From issue-less “days of action” to inconsequential general strikes, the recent struggles in Greece, Spain, Italy, France, and Portugal invariably seem to stumble over the limit of their own national frame of reference. The standpoint of the nation, long considered synonymous with political activity per se, be it that of the State or one or another revolutionary party, has revealed itself as being the very scale of our own collective powerlessness. It is this powerlessness, turned against itself, that fuels the fire of so many nationalist resentments.

From C4SS - by David S. D'Amato
The life of Laurance Labadie appears very much like his anarchism, a deliberate, often anachronistic struggle against the vogues and prevailing winds of his day, a hopeless attempt to revive an energy faded or extinguished entirely. His thought belonged to a libertarian strain regrettably anchored to those of the previous generation or two, to a time just before the “official” anarchist movement coalesced firmly around communist and syndicalist patterns of thought. Perceiving the inherent stagnancy of such a narrowly circumscribed focus on these ideologies, Ardent Press, along with its distribution partner Little Black Cart, has worked to make egoist, individualist, nihilist, and anti-civilization writings available.

The Middle East today is the last place anyone in mainstream western thought would think to look for progressive political thought, and even less to see those thoughts translated into action. Our image of the region is one of dictatorships, military juntas and theocracies built on the ruins of the former Ottoman Empire, or hollow states like Afghanistan, and increasingly Pakistan, where anything outside the capitol is like Mad Max.

The prisoner we have been supporting as Jared Chase of the NATO 3 is ready to let her supporters and comrades know that she is a trans woman who prefers to be called Maya and uses she/her/hers pronouns. She also wants to go vegan, although she is currently not able to receive adequate nutrition in general, much less according to her ethical decisions.

From Hoodline - By Diana Fan
The sign outside the door may describe Bound Together as an anarchist bookstore, but a passing tourist or local who's never been inside might not know about the long history of the collective, which dates back to the mid-1970s.

In response to ODRC cancelling Sean Swain's scheduled video visits on flimsy pretext, he has been on Hunger Strike since Monday morning. (read more on that here.) Last night he refused the 9th consecutive meal, which makes the hunger strike official. This means a prison official came to talk to him, and told him that they were moving him to the hole to "monitor his health and protect his safety" while on hunger strike.

According to info received, Tamara Sol was found guilty by the court and sentenced to 7 years and 800 days (9 years and 2 months in total) in prison. Recall that Tamara Sol is the comrade who was arrested after a BancoEstado security guard was shot in revenge for the death of Sebastián Oversluij Seguel.
After the trial, there was clashes between Sol family’s and the tribunal guards (gendarmes).
However, there still exists an appeal opportunity against the sentence.
More news will be published by other comrades in some blogs.

In summer 2013, we interviewed the Turkish group Revolutionary Anarchist Action (Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet, or DAF) about the uprising that began in Gezi Park. At the end of summer 2014, we learned that DAF was supporting the fierce resistance that residents of the town of Kobanê in northern Syria were putting up to the incursion of the fundamentalist Islamic State.
