Anarchism and Punk – Call for Chapters

Anarchism and Punk – Call for Chapters

From jimdonaghey at noblogs

Anarchism and Punk – edited volume
There has been a wealth of excellent writing about punk over the last few years. The best of these have been the critical reflections that pull free of the quagmire of 1970s nostalgia, and the critical engagements that see beyond the narrow scope of punk’s Anglo-American birthing ponds. This Call for Chapters proposes to continue and extend that exciting work by considering in closer detail the relationships between anarchism and punk, with a contemporary emphasis and a global spread.

Attentat on Immediatism Podcast

Attentat is a journal of nihilist and anarchist ideas, including "Insurrectionary Anarchism as Activism" and "Nihilism as Strategy," two of its essays. "Art of Nothing" is a nihilist piece patterned after Tsunzi's the Art of War. "A Critique of Critique" is "the gap between what we need and what we can get" and "a lament about the role of recuperation and our role in perfecting it." "A Howl Against Marx" looks at Marx in each of his roles as sociologist, economist, and political philosopher, then concludes that "[o]ur hatred for the system does not accompany a capacity to do much about it. We would not even recommend building this capacity. This building of capacity is one of the surest ways to be noticed by the agents of authority.... Therefore we are left with little but our howl." Five additional essays have been left unrecorded for you to enjoy in print. Attentat is published by Pistols Drawn and is available from LittleBlackCart.com.

Molotov Attack on Police Station in Thessaloniki

The idiots of the treacherous left who sold out the uprising by insulting the militants with provocateurism and now run to capitalize on the Polytechnic as a party seal. All those who, regardless of their political identity and the respective expediencies, want the Polytechnic as a cheap jewel in the window of yesterday. For all of them, the Polytechnic and every uprising is a living threat through the consistency, the faith and the commitment of the social disobedience to the same project of total overthrow. The Polytechnic belongs to each selfless fighter who honors it with a thought, a flower, a slogan, a Molotov cocktail, a bullet.

Anarchism, Morocco, & the Spanish Civil War

Carrying the war into Africa? Anarchism, Morocco, and the Spanish Civil War

From Freedom News UK by Danny Evans

I was approached by Jeff Stein to write up a summary of Abel Paz, La cuestión de Marruecos y la República española so that English-language readers might be made aware of the Spanish anarchist approach to Morocco during the civil war. I would like to thank Jeff for prompting me to write what follows, although he should not be held responsible for its contents or conclusions.
