6 weeks ago our comrade Jus got taken from us at the eviction of Remi’s Tower, a huge barricade built in honour of Remi Fraisse, who got killed by the freakin cops.
The first 3 weeks Jus was on hunger strike and as a reaction to that the cops told him he did not have a lawyer registered (which he had) and put him in a isolation cell, where it is hard to sleep because they check every 15 minutes if you are not dead yet by turning the lights on and off. All the letters he receives now get checked and it takes about 2 to 4 weeks for them to get to him. He is in prison for 6 weeks and only had two visits. It is extremely difficult to arrange visits, because there has to be an interpreter at all times, and they want audio-visual surveillance. Also his phone privileges are restricted to only his lawyer (even though everyone else can call whoever the fuck they want) and even about that they are being assholes.

From Anarkismo - by Shawn Hattingh
It was long ago stated that capitalism came into the world dripping in blood and dirt, from every pore, from head to toe. While it has demonstrated that it won’t simply collapse under its own weight, the recent goings-on around the current capitalist crisis have shown that with age it has become even more hideous. Capitalism is now rank with massive state intervention required to simply keep its rotting body moving: through states propping up the financial sector and deepening the colossal attack on the working class.

Anti-cop blow-back heightens. Future drought/fires aimed at oil/gas pipelines. Unprecedented sandstorm covers Middle East - not a "natural" disaster. "The End of the Tour" - David Foster Wallace story. Political/civic institutions flailing. Medicalization of alienation, denial of arriving catastrophe. Man kicks robot, action news. Two calls,

This Tuesday, our comrades are embarking on a two-month tour of the US, comprising fifty events in twenty-five states. Where our massive outreach project To Change Everything introduces anarchist ideas, on this tour anarchists from three continents will discuss their experiences acting on these ideas in a variety of struggles, movements, and uprisings.
There are still a couple days open in Southern California in late October.

From the 28th August to the 2nd September 2015, the Reclaim the Fields International Action Camp drew over 130 people to Wrexham, North Wales, to resist the ‘North Wales Prison Project,’ the construction of Europe’s second largest prison. Held at Borras Community Protection Camp, a site camp established to oppose fracking in the area, the gathering sought to link land struggles with resistance to the prison industrial complex(1) and ongoing mechanisms of state violence and dispossession.

From Libertarian Labyrinth - by Shawn Wilbur
- Anarchy is a simple, accessible notion, sufficient to provide the necessary glue for a real anarchist current or movement.
I’ve been struck by the number of times recently that I have encountered the argument that a really thoroughgoing idea of anarchy was an impediment, and perhaps the great impediment, to the anarchist movement. It seems obvious that attempting to do justice to the notion of anarchy could be an impediment to any number of other kinds of products or movements, but it is hard for me to wrap my head around the notion that anarchism—as an ideology, movement, individual aspiration or whatever—could have any other focus.

Anarchist News now has a presence on Facebook and Twitter! We hope our stories and media can be easily interacted with and shared within these spaces that are flooded with dominant news and mainstream narratives. This will be supplementary to our main site (anarchistnews.org) and won’t affect the ways the main site is independently organized or presented.

North American anarchist subculture doesn’t offer much to elders. A lot of the time it can actively repel them. Sometimes this is referred to as “burn-out,” but that term can also be used to describe other situations where someone decides that the costs of participating in something are no longer worth paying. The burn-out that is related to aging isn’t limited to the frustrations of losing over and over again. It comes from many places, especially in a system that manages aging just as much as it manages labor, health, public policy, war, and the environment.

In the days following the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown's death at the hands of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, there were multiple sightings of anti-police graffiti throughout the Central District.
