If we – as a movement – take step back I don't think it's actually that difficult to see why so many people come to a few meetings and then never return. As I've gotten a bit older and my time is a bit more precious, I find myself getting more easily frustrated with a lot of aspects of anarchist organisations. I don't have kids, but I imagine if I did, all these things would be all the more pressing.

My sentence to nine months in jail in conjunction with a withheld felony sentence, amounting to 15 years in prison if I “step out of line” in the eyes of the “state,” was a harsh and classist attack on my beliefs and lifestyle. Judge Fox strives to kill my spirit by burying me in a dying urban hole, and desires that I refrain from involvement in the anti-resource extraction struggle; I refuse to be “killed,” and I refuse the idea of coerced complacency.

Check out this new reader that compiles some of the best texts that critique "ally" politics as well as the closely linked, 'non-profit industrial complex.' As the text, 'Accomplices not Allies" writes: "The ally industrial complex has been established by activists whose careers depend on the “issues” they work to address...Ally has also become an identity, disembodied from any real mutual understanding of support.

Freedom of speech is important to intellectual concept driven, common purpose based organizing.
Organizing in nature, in general, is outside-inwardly orchestrated by transforming relational patterns which inform individual and collective experience.
Western authoritarian organizing is, on the other hand, driven and directed by intellectual concepts such as ‘sovereigntism’ [the notional ‘local independent existence’ of a ‘sovereign state’ and its ‘supreme central authority’ operated by its ‘political leadership’].

Since 2011, the Informal Anarchist Federation (IAF)—a local division of a much wider, global insurrectionary anarchist group: the Federazione Anarchia Informale—has been carrying out scores of attacks on private property across Bristol, England. Now the cops are out to get them and Bristol's wider activist community is being caught up in the search.

The first shriek comes from a liberal, the latter a Marxist. With all due respect to both, I think the former quite confused if he thinks that Castroite Cuba more closely reflects his own Keynesian delusions, and the latter seems not to understand Che’s significant contribution to the normalization of relations between Cuba and the US (even though it occurs long after his death). Che was the Beard’s partner in the charade that was Cuban socialism, and his ally in the effort to rid that island of all forms of dissent and opposition.
