Anarchist counter-information plays a crucial role in building our force. Counter-info can not only spread our ideas and analysis with others, but it also helps to build connections between different circles of antagonists that might not otherwise encounter one another. There may also be some truth to the theory of momentum; when it seems like there is more activity, it motivates more people to take more action.

Most insane product of the week : smart shoes. Facebook follies - who does JZ's?
(not JZ). Political dis-integration? Paiutes vs. liberal "defender"? Huel (like Soylent);
Fast Food Aid in Tokyo (to junk food eaters). Horrors of pollution in India. Heat, emissions
rising sharply. Ad of the week (Cisco), resistance briefs. Utter irrelevance of new issue
of Anarchy magazine. Four calls.
On April 23, 2016, hundreds of people gathered to oppose a rally called by the Ku Klux Klan at Stone Mountain Park, Georgia.

From It's Going Down
In the past year, the CrimethInc. Collective launched the ‘To Change Everything’ tour following the release of a text by the same name which was translated into multiple languages and published and distributed from Brazil to Korea.
