LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Tuesday’s DTH editorial “Anarchy alarm” is right to describe the vandalism against Chi Psi as nothing more than a violent reaction: There’s no group claiming it, least of all us anarchists in UNControllables.
Therefore, condemning it really misses the point.
Readers would be better served by trying to understand what would drive people to lash out against symbols of patriarchy.
Many of us are all too familiar with how it feels to be constantly harassed walking down the streets of Chapel Hill.

Most of us have made a compact, saying “Let us make a convention. Let us agree to call what we are feeling not ‘pain’ but ‘neutral,’ not ‘dull unease’ but ‘well enough,’ not ‘restless dissatisfaction intermitted by blowing up,’ but average ‘hanging around.’ Our consensus is that how we live is tolerable. If I ask, ‘How are you?’ you must say, ‘Pretty good.’ And if I do not remind you, you must not remind me. To all this we swear.”1

This actually looks pretty interesting. From a gameplay perspective, RIOT looks to be somewhat of a real time strategy game. The graphics and presentation look clean and understandable despite being 8-bit. You can pick one of 2 sides… the rioters or the riot police. RIOT is being developed by Leonard Lenny from Florence, Italy on iOS, Android, Mac and Windows PC. Looks pretty cool. If you think so too, you can fund the development of RIOT via indiegogo.

Somewhat like last year a public relations exercise at the Palais des Congrès de Montreal, the Salon des ressources naturelles, was organized by bastards who profit from the destruction of our communities and our lives; Enbridge, Snc-Lavalin, RioTinto, Osisko, etc..

Every year (for the past eight or so) we have tried to make the time period around the bookfair and the BASTARD conference more of a celebration than it had been previously. This was in the context of the SF bookfair organizers demonstrating that their definition of autonomy meant expansion and hostility rather than cooperation and dialog. Our feeling was that the best way to respond to this was to throw a party.
