TOTW: Eco-fascism?

?

Eco-fascism. It's something I hear lots about but understand little of. I've read these recent essays, these recent mainstream news articles, and a head-spinning number of tweets. One tweet that caught my eye was an anarchist asking for a 'substantive working definition' of the word. There were no substantive working definitions in the replies. I've asked questions left, right and centre and I'm none the wiser. And so I'm reaching out to you, anews commenters, to help me make sense of it all.

Two reportbacks from “Fuck the 4th” march

Two reportbacks from “Fuck the 4th” march

From Puget Sound Anarchists, OLYMPIA

Reportback from Impromptu Fuck the 4th March

What started as a day of chill BLM marches and fuck the 4th dance parties gave way to one of the most intensely destructive nights I think I’ve ever seen in Oly. Around 10:30ish a crowd of around 40 in all black assembled at a fountain at one end of town. I wasn’t really sure what the vibe was gonna be for the night, for Olympia a 40 deep black bloc (or march in general) is pretty big but it never feels big enough, so I was anxious. I looked up at the full moon illuminating our gathering and found some strength and comfort in that. After a few minutes of milling about some people began to chant “NO COPS, NO PRISONS, TOTAL ABOLITION” and the march took off.

Vegan Bunnies Deconstruct Gender

From El Libertario, translated by Anarchist News

Peruvian anarchist artist and their urban art deconstruct topics of gender

by Sergio Jiménez

With respect to how she defines her art, she points out that she makes what 'springs from her' and what carries 'the pure and hard sentiment from the streets', be it 'painting a graffiti as vandalism or making the prettiest mural in the whole world', because 'you can't limit what the heart and mind demands'.

Anarchists arrested for graffiti in Indonesia

From AMW

Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners in Tangerang and Bekasi, Indonesia

On April 9th, 2020, three of our comrades were arrested and convicted of a heavy crime for spraying several graffiti that say “_sudah krisis, saatnya membakar_” (there’s a crisis already, time to burn) and “_melawan atau mati konyol_” (fight or perish). What is actually a voice of rightful citizens is considered a crime of provocation. Their art is a valid criticisms toward the government’s lack of integrity in mitigating the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic and just a petty crime at most.

Op. Bialystok – A text by Nico

We receive and publish this text by Nico from prison, dated 19/06/20:

To the friends and loves of my life, to my comrades of struggles and adventures, to the anarchists and all those interested in my situation: I am writing these few lines to update you on my conditions and to give you news of the repressive case that concerns me.

The contagion of revolt spreads…Revolts everywhere!

Since we published our previous text at the end of March,1 the unfolding of events has only further confirmed what we had there denounced: the war against the coronavirus is a war against the worldwide proletariat. The declaration of the pandemic was the scapegoat, an excellent opportunity and cover for imposing a whole series of brutal measures that despotically demand the dictatorship of profit.

Received via email from Kolectiva

Presenting Kolektiva - a new online platform for anarchist and anti-colonial videos

As of today, anarchists and anti-colonialists from all over the world have a new platform for sharing videos, and helping to make them available in multiple different languages. We're calling this project Kolectiva. Please share this call within your networks. We are still looking for anarchist & anti-colonial filmmakers, content producers and translators who are interested in helping to grow this project and help it meet its potential.

30 years Liebig 34 – We never stop!

30 years Liebig 34 – We never stop!

From Squat!net, Berlin

The Liebig 34 will celebrate its 30th birthday at the beginning of July. Eviction titles, media hype and annoying cops don’t spoil these days. Viva la Liebig!

Thirty years ago, after the fall of the Wall, people from a wide variety of backgrounds flocked to East Berlin to take advantage of the chance offered by the unresolved chains of command and the unspeakable vacancy. Entire streets and blocks of houses were occupied, redesigned and filled with ideas and creativity. The streets of Friedrichshain were full of life and very practical solidarity. At one corner there was a discussion meeting, in the next open-air cinema and there food was cooked for the whole street.
