Tabling at ELaw with Ian; good stuff. Read out "Death." Anarchy Radio is
"gossip and NYT reprints"(?) YouTube: a billion hours a day. Bird flu is back,
French towns "fade", zines not obsolete despite internet (see Black and Green
Review!) Action news. "Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology" as social
media produce more social isolation. Sleeplessness, spills, Colorado River
declining, two calls.
The 2017 Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair is going to be postponed from April 22 to September 16, 2017.
Last fall we booked the two 2016 venues for this year’s event. A few weeks ago one of the venues cancelled our agreement, leaving us with no place to hold workshops/speakers. Since then, we have been unable to find a venue that has enough room for vendors as well as 2-3 workshop spaces that is also accessible (not requiring stairs), and available on the originally scheduled date of April 22.
In this inaugural episode of "The Anarchists", we talk about recent ELF attacks, upcoming May Day actions, and the current popularity of the term "alt-left".
This podcast is a product of a group of r/Anarchism exiles. Our collective was formed a few months ago, and contains members with ideas ranging from anti-civ to syndicalism. We aim to discuss current issues, as well as older, unresolved topics in anarchism.
From The Ex-Worker
January 20th, 2017 saw perhaps the fiercest resistance to ever take place at an American presidential inauguration. Episode 55 of The Ex-Worker podcast surveys the day’s momentous protests in DC and beyond, mass media reactions to anarchist resistance, and lessons for the future of radical protest. We begin with an interview with an organizer from Disrupt J20, evaluating the blockades, marches, and disruptions, commenting on state and right-wing repression, reflecting on the spokescouncil model, and sharing visions for the future, as well as info on how to support the 200-plus comrades arrested in the streets that day. Our friends at Agency, an anarchist media relations project, share a detailed report on mass media coverage of the demonstrations and of anarchists and anarchism over the past weeks, including plenty of hilarious quotes and clips.
Here’s an idea: a zine, well laid out and readable in an afternoon, with a funny picture on the front of it and a few varied articles inside; a day in late April, hopefully not too rainy, and a bunch of people gathered in a park or a public square; anarchists, normal-looking or otherwise, and maybe with a solid chemical excuse for not being able to articulate their ideas in plain words.
Story time everyone! In this case, the story is: how did you become an anarchist?
What was your path to becoming an anarchist? Was it because of the influence of a subculture, like punk, hippie or activism? Was it the influence (positive or negative) of a particular relative or teacher? Was it through long hours reading books in the library? Was it through the influence of a friend or group of friends? Was it through a series of troubles with the law? Or was it through spending excessive amounts of time on the internet?
This week we spoke with Romina and César, who are two members of the Black Rose Anarchist Federation in LA. We talk about what it's like organizing in an Especifist federation model of anarchism, about anarcho-communism, and tensions and points of unity between non federation and federation organizing. We wanted to interview these folks in order to present another model of possible engagement, for folks who perhaps are looking for ways to plug in. This conversation is somewhat introductory, and we welcome any feedback you have. To see more on this project, you can visit http://www.blackrosefed.org/
From Ruptura Colectiva, translated by anonymous
In the afternoon of the first of March, the clandestine group “Anarquistas al Combate” took the P building of the National Pedagogical University in the city of Bogotá, Colombia, making a call to the student community to resume the process of autonomy and rebellion in their discussions and practices in and outside of the university space. The militant hooded ones painted some slogans on the walls of the building and strongly rejected the more than 120 assassinations of community leaders and defenders of human rights in just 14 months in all of Columbia, specifically in a political context mediated by peace, side by side with the serious – and cowardly – paramilitary attacks against social fighters.
