Last week VICE reported that a new museum that promised to celebrate the Suffragete movement and the women of East London had opened—but turned out to be a museum about Jack the Ripper, a man who is famous for mutilating and murdering women.
This week the understandable outrage has boiled over into public protest. On Tuesday the Greens, Lib Dems, Communist Party, and other left-wing groups held a demo outside the proposed museum. On Wednesday night it was the turn of anarchist rabble-rousers Class War and a bunch of their rowdy friends to voice their hostilities.

Is anarchism about affirming a world that you want to create; or, is it the complete negation of the existent?
Many anarchists assert that they are trying to create a new world in the shell of the old. They have a history of anarchist thought to support their claims. Like Bakunin, they advocate for a creative destruction. In the name of positive values such as mutual aid, freedom of association, consensus processes, egalitarianism, and usufruct notions of property, they claim that a revolution is necessary to realize such values.

From Institute for Anarchist Studies - by Michelle Renee Matisons and Aalexander Reid Ross
For a book that advertises itself as a “shift in strategy and tactics,” Deep Green Resistance (DGR) has an overwhelmingly dispiriting tone, and is riddled with contradictions. While DGR provocatively addresses many pressing social and ecological issues, its opportunistic, loose-cannon theoretical approach and highly controversial tactics leaves it emulating right-wing militia rhetoric, with the accompanying hierarchical vanguardism, personality cultism, and reactionary moralism.

From Montreal Counter-information
Every time there's an election, on the provincial or federal levels anyway, Montréal anarchists respond. There are stickers, there are posters, there are demos. ON NE VOTE PAS, ON LUTTE! declares the banner at the front of the march.

The judge assigned to the counter-terrorism hearing did not go along with the prosecution's request to continue applying the designation of “terrorist organisation”, an aggravating factor, to three activists.

A curated mixtape of antagonistic tracks produced in the tumultuous year since Michael Brown’s murder on August 9th, 2014. Dedicated in memoriam to Mike Mike, Sandra Bland, and all the others who have been taken from us by the State and White Supremacy, whether by the gun, noose, chokehold, or cage.

On Monday, July 27th, our friend and comrade, Stephen Loughman, was arrested and charged with “breach of peace” for his support the week before at an anti-KKK rally in Columbia, SC on July 18th, 2015. Local activists had called on folks from across the southern region to help South Carolina’s communities stand against the Klan and other hate groups, who like many groups were trying to use the Confederate flag debate as a recruitment tool.
