From June 11th by Sean Swain
Hope I’m still alive and kicking this June 11. It’s possible that I’m facing imminent death. Now, don’t panic. Okay. Wait. Please panic a little bit. It will make me feel loved and valued. If you don’t at all, that would hurt my feelings.
5/21/19 -Vermont lost one of our most remarkable woman today; film maker, journalist, Black Panther historian, communard, Green Mountain Red, revolutionary, and (ironically) Richmond constable Roz Payne has left this world and these Green Hills for points beyond. Roz grew up in a working class-leftist household in New Jersey. Her mother was a union organizer in Lawrence, MA during the Great Depression. Her father ran for NJ State Senate as a member of the Socialist Party. Beat poet Allen Ginsberg was her sometimes babysitter.

Solidarity with the imprisoned anarchists
On the morning of 13 May a new antiterrorist operation against anarchism struck in Tétouan (a Madrid neighbourhood). The anarchist space La Emboscada [the ambush] and another squatted house were raided by members of la Brigade d’information and the anti-riot police. The operation resulted in two arrests. We bear in mind the Pandora, Piñata, Ice and the one that is still keeping Lisa behind bars.

The anarchist critique of seizing state power is often caricatured as being based on an abstract moral opposition to the state that ignores the harsh realities we are currently facing. Upon carefully reading historical anarchist authors, however, one discovers that the real reason why they argued that revolutionaries should not seize existing state power was because it was impractical for achieving their goals.

For nearly half a century, Russian emigrant Emma Goldman was the most controversial woman in America, taunting the mainstream with her fervent attacks on government, big business, and war. To the tabloids, she was "Red Emma, queen of the anarchists," but many admired Goldman for her defense of labor rights, women's emancipation, birth control, and free speech.
From Support Marius Mason
I can hardly believe that it has been another year passing and it is J11 again. I am so thankful for this annual touch point as an opportunity to reach out to my community on the outside and to take stock of the year. It is hard to take in that I have been locked up for more than a decade, and even more sobering to realize how many comrades have been incarcerated for MULTIPLE decades. They have my infinite admiration for maintaining their integrity and for keeping their vision alive through so many years.
