From Anarchist Action
Anti-militarist activists today blockaded a NATO conference at a stately home in the Sussex countryside. Meanwhile, banners were hung off road bridges close to the venue to greet delegates as they arrived at Wiston House in Steyning.
Protesters succeeded in blocking the front entrance for more than an hour, leading to chaotic scenes on the A283, as cars queued to get into the estate.

We have heard terrifying stories from the revolution in Ukraine: anarchists participating in anti-government street-fighting behind nationalist banners, anarchist slogans and historical figures appropriated by fascists, a dystopia in which familiar movements and strategies reappear with our enemies at the helm.

The links between the two schools of revolutionary socialism – Marxism and class struggle anarchism – have produced much debate, some more helpful than others. Into the helpful pile comes Libertarian Socialism: Politics in Black and Red (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012) edited by Alex Prichard, Ruth Kinna, Saku Pinta and Dave Berry. Twelve excellent chapters and a terrible one are sandwiched between a useful introduction and conclusion. Overall, it is essential reading for all those seeking to enrich libertarian socialism in the 21st century.

But Chumbawamba’s journey from squatters to pop stars illustrates a central paradox of music and subculture—what happens when we find ourselves having to play awkward undesirable roles? What happens when anarchists become successful? Crass laid out their qualms with their own success with the brilliant Eve Libertine-shouted lyric:
“We didn’t expect to find ourselves playing this part/we were concerned with IDEAS/not rock and roll.”

The 2014 BASTARD Conference will be held at UC Berkeley Campus on March 23rd between 10am and 5pm.
The BASTARD (Berkeley Anarchist Students of Theory And Research & Development) conference promotes the understanding that there are multiple valid approaches to anarchism, each of which has points that are worth examining. Come and share your approach. Participate in a commerce-free event with other anarchists who are interested in the theory and philosophy of where we've come from, where we are, and where we're going.
