"Not long ago, Primitivism was a significant strand of North American Anarchy. During the period of the WTO protests… and through the Green Scare repression of environmentalists, John Zerzan's ideas about the dangers of technology were undeniably important to many on the left."

From European Interest

EXARCHEIA, Athens – On a summer day in Athens, tourists and locals alike can be found in Kolonaki, one of Athens’ most affluent neighborhoods, sipping on cappuccinos, chatting with friends, or leisurely walking alongside the most expensive stores in the city. Few ever leave to go to Exarcheia, a neighborhood that is a mere five-minute walk away.

From Anarchy Bang

Buddhist anarchism is something that has existed since the golden age of classical anarchism but has never solidified into anything resembling a movement, organization, or even a unified philosophy. Given the countless different definitions of, and sects within, both "anarchism" and "buddhism", to use a label like "buddhist anarchism" can mean anything and everything. And for a few random weirdos out there throughout time and around the world, buddhist anarchism has meant a great deal.So this week we will discuss buddhist anarchism, some ways to look at freedom and liberation as both an inner thing as well as a worldly thing, in both our personal lives as well as for all living beings (and maybe for our past and future lives as well).

From New York City Anarchist Book Fair

The NYC Anarchist Book Fair returns to Judson Memorial in its 13th edition - Sep 6th and 7th, 2019

As climate emergency looms, the specter of war and fascism haunts us. In the media and in the world around us, we watch the super wealthy ruling corporative elites persisting in maintaining the exploitative death-culture hierarchy of white, cis, patriarchal, Imperialist, and colonial capitalism. At the NYC Anarchist Book Fair we believe that can be changed, and it takes a village to invent the future.

21.08.19: On Monday night, we set fire to several construction vehicles on the grounds of the Zwickau Marienthal Prison construction site. An excavator was burned out completely, the other four excavators and a front end loader were damaged by our fire and made partially unusable. We would like to dedicate this action especially to Loic, the Park Bench 3 and the Basel 18. They are missing from our side.

From Resonance Audio Distro

For seven days during the winter of 2016, radicals, revolutionaries and ne’er-do-wells – inspired by the then unfolding revolt at Standing Rock – built a blockade encampment on the train tracks in downtown Olympia, Washington (Nisqually and Squaxin Land), in order to stop a train full of essential fracking supplies from reaching the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota. One year later the blockade reemerged and for another twelve days during the winter of 2017, participants took a stand against the industrial machinations of death.

From Anarchists Worldwide, Berlin, Germany:

Received and translated on 22.08.19:

Nothing is forgotten.

Even two years later, we have not forgotten the days and nights of the G20 summit in Hamburg; the euphoria on the faces of those in revolt, the headlines about the nightly attacks in the lead up, the noticeable nervousness of the law enforcement officers. We remember the beginning of the campaigns focusing on the G20 and the desire to continue our mutual reference through targeted attacks beyond that short time frame.
