<table><tr><td>By Jeff Shantz (Toronto-NEFAC)


In recent years a variety of social movement and environmental commentators have devoted a great deal of energy to efforts which argue the demise of class struggle as a viable force for social change (See Eckersley, 1990; Bowles and Gintis, 1987; Bookchin, 1993; 1997). These writers argue that analyses of class struggle are unable to account for the plurality of expressions which hierarchy, domination and oppression take in advanced capitalist or what they prefer to call "postindustrial" societies (See Bookchin, 1980; 1986). They charge that class analyses render a one-dimensional portrayal of social relations. The result of this has been a broad practical and theoretical turn away from questions of class and especially class struggle.</td><td><img src="files/pictures/nefac.jpg"></td></tr></table>

Anarchist Action is a tactic that is being adapted across the US to promote organizing and action between and within anarchist groups, collectives, and individuals. In Seattle, Anarchist Action is to be an open forum for all anarchists in the region to meet together to discuss the facilitation and coordination of autonomous revolutionary anarchist resistance. The specific content of these all is to be determined by the participants alone. So come join fellow anarchists to agitate, instigate, and organinze to fight back.

I am submiting this in part, as historical backgound, to help understand the origins of a part of the US anarchist movement. Quite a few of us continue adhere to the traditional principles of anarcho-communism, while also adhering to the best traditions of anarcho-syndicalism as well.</td><td><img src="files/pictures/wsa3.jpg"></td></tr></table>In part the anarchist communist movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s in the US and Canada was very much a twining of anarchist communism and anarcho-syndicalism. Our initial efforts were a clear break with "counter-culturalism", non-class struggle and and anti-organizational anarchism.

Following all our discussions and actions over the last few years, we have come together as anarchists, those of whom are moving together, giving the same responses, sharing the same feelings and passions for the future. By coming together, we are aiming to make a modest contribution to the movement, to nourish and make the fire grow in the ongoing struggle.</td><td><img src="files/pictures/yikilacak.jpg"></td></tr></table>

In Existentialism, bad faith is a willingness to conform and an unwillingness to reflect upon yourself. People who have bad faith never change, never question, and never think inward. The same can be said about government. Government never looks within, never questions itself and never tries to change. Those in power rarely ever change themselves, and when they do, it's never for the good of those they rule, it's for their own political salvation. </td><td><img src="files/pictures/existentialism.jpg"></td></tr></table>

They can only monitor traffic

Wednesday August 3, 2005

Government plans to revive the Olympics security system to help deal with any potential terrorist threat were dealt a serious blow yesterday when the country’s privacy watchdog refused to allow CCTV cameras to be used to monitor anything other than Athens’s notorious traffic jams.</td><td><img src="files/pictures/6010_small.jpg"></td></tr></table>
