Some context

In the past few days various media outlets have published articles concerning “violent groups” in the Mexican territory.

These articles are a result of the Attorney General of Mexico (PGR) publicly revealing the names of groups that threaten social stability; these groups are anarchists, communists, radical ecology groups, eco-extremists, or groups of other political alignments.

Will Standing Rock Give Anarchism a Soul?

From Greed Media

The scene is a new one, yet its repeated wherever the Western world collides with one that is perhaps incalculably old.

It’s evening time in North Dakota and a young Anarchist from out of state sits beside a bonfire. He looks at the comrades around him, primarily indigenous peoples, and breathes deeply the clean air of the plains. Stars he never sees in the city paint the night sky and the moon lights up the hills that seem to roll on forever. He can understand why these proud people want to defend this land, this soil, and fight so hard to keep the long arm of capitalism from despoiling it. With a big breath he tries to soak up as many memories, his entire body beaming with joy.

For months, hundreds of people, including members of nearly a hundred different indigenous peoples, have mobilized to block the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. On October 27, police raiding the Sacred Ground camp encountered stiff resistance. We’ve just received the following firsthand report from comrades who participated in the defense of the camp. Describing some of the fiercest clashes indigenous and environmental movements in the region have seen in many years, they pose important questions about solidarity struggles.

If we've been around at all, we've all had experiences of either being called out, or calling out, or both. This totw is not for the same conversations about how fucked up the most egregious examples are (a target that is far too easy), but one about our own positive (as much as possible, and however complicated) experiences: when has calling out someone or something worked in a specific case? when has someone had a really solid response to being falsely or correctly called out?

In Modern Madness: A Wild Schizoanalysis of Mental Distress in the Spaces of Modernity, talented new author Ed Lord opens up some fundamental questions for analysis.

What are we to make of an age that delivers pandemic levels of mental illness and a physical environment at the point of catastrophic collapse?
