It is hard to overstate the severity of the environmental crisis. Human impacts on the planet are so severe that some scientists suggest that we have caused the earth to enter into a new geological epoch. They argue that sometime around the beginning of the industrial revolution the planet left the Holocene and entered a new era: the Anthropocene (“Welcome to the Anthropocene”). The revelation that humans have become a geological force due to our changing of the climate, earthquakes caused from fracking, etc might be startling, but it doesn’t stop there. We are also in the middle of the earth’s sixth mass extinction event, where as many as 200 species may be going extinct per day (Pearson). Moreover, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that certain ‘positive feedback’ mechanisms in the earth’s climate system have been triggered and it is likely that catastrophic climate change in now unstoppable.

A Country of Ghosts - a book of The Anarchist Imagination
A little more than a year ago, we announced a new series, The Anarchist Imagination, challenging people to write compelling anarchist utopian novellas and novels. (Okay, we said novellas at the time, but then we published a novel. So I suppose we're open to novels too.)

A protest over the Albuquerque Police Department's use of force stretched late into Sunday night.
The protest finally ended just before midnight.
Around 9 p.m., police used tear gas in an attempt to put an end to the demonstration. Albuquerque police arrested at least six people and charged them with disorderly conduct.

Anarchism is short in coming without the resistance to white supremacy and furthermore, white supremacy being associated with the same sentiment as patriarchy. White Supremacy and patriarchy are not myths created by oppressed people to tangle the truths of the history of North America and white colonized continents.

Early in the morning of April 28th we ran up to the Wells Fargo bank in the Madison Park neighborhood of Seattle. In just a couple of breif joyous moments we chucked a couple of rocks through their windows and left. It was easy, fun and exhilarating.
We were inspired by the defiance of the detainees in Tacoma's ICE Prison on hunger strike, who are demanding better pay, better food, better treatment, lower commissary, and fairness. We were excited to hear that 70 more strikers have joined the hunger strike as of Monday.

Not everyone who calls themselves anarchists are worthy of the name. Before expressing our solidarity, we should be clear who it is we are supporting.
