Announcing the third edition of Wreck. We are putting this out with the aims to create an anarchist discourse within so called Vancouver. Anarchist discourse is dominated by those with the loudest voices, from those who have podcasts to others who engage in social media. We want to create our own narratives, specific to our conditions. An anarchist perspective encourages those to speak who have passion, being a man or having a university education is no qualifier for a valued opinion.
The 4th annual anti-capitalist May Day saw an unprecedented turn out of over 20,000 (not a typo and most likely way more) radicals, queers, ravers, anarchists, partiers, socialists and people from all walks of life. May Day, International Worker’s Day, is a day to celebrate our power to resist the exploitation of capitalist elites. In this spirit we showed we don’t need the support of corporate sponsors, the city, or the police to throw the most badass street party Vancouver has seen in a long time.
WRECK is a newly launched print-based anarchist publication from so-called Vancouver presenting analysis on regional and world events. Our first edition includes articles written by local writers on a number of issues including police repression, anarcha-feminism, riots, struggles against pipelines, and others.

Burnaby's Eryk Martin on anarchism, feminism and the Red Hot Video bombings
What do feminists and anarchists have in common? What's the story behind the Squamish Five, the Wimmin's Fire Brigade and the porn shop bombings of the '80s? Burnaby resident Eryk Martin has all the answers. The SFU student is working on his PhD dissertation in history, and he's focusing on anarchism.
Beat The Raid will be a place to hear up to date info on the repression of anti-pipelines activists and anarchists in so called Vancouver, BC. We are still fundraising and now selling no pipelines patches and t-shirts to help with legal funds. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and interview requests.
Together we will beat the isolation the state imposes on us.

From Vancouver Media Coop - by indyvan
On June 3rd, 2014, Vancouver Police staged a “guns-drawn” raid against a house of known indigenous and anarchist opponents to the energy policies of the central government and its corporate sponsors.
The ostensible reason for the raid was given as the search for graffiti materials believed to be tied to an ongoing “no pipelines” tagging campaign. One person was arrested, but released without charges or conditions.
