From Indybay - by Ben Rosenfeld
A couple years ago, I asked people to pause before branding as a cooperator a person who gave pre-scripted testimony to a grand jury after a exhausting her legal options. (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/11/09/18725393.php) Although some people construed my piece as advocating “partial cooperation,”

As anarchists, how can we more effectively contribute to the spreading of the boundaries of rebellion, as well as, stoke the flames to make combative and confrontation struggle against the state a daily reality over weeks and months and years? How have we done this successfully in the past? What examples are there of situations where there were opportunites to spread the flames, but alas we did not? What is the role of the white/outside/anarchist/agitator/provocateur in rebellions and movements where primarily people of color are at the forefront? Is this line of questioning some vanguardist bullshit? While participating in popular rebellion might certainly be exciting, is it even worth the bother? Won't the masses inevitably get tired of the instability that comes along with fighting and have their struggles swiftly coopted? Would “our” (your?) struggle be better served by a fierce and unrelenting departure from the masses?

From Vice by CJ Ciaramella, February 27, 2015
An extraordinary thing happened last month: US prosecutors admitted the government messed up.
Well, technically they admitted that a judge could conceivably decide that the government might have possibly messed up enough to warrant a new trial. But still.
As part of a unusual deal brokered between his defense team and chagrined US attorneys, Eric McDavid, who in 2007 was sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison on domestic terrorism charges, walked free on January 8 after the government told a judge it had "inadvertently" failed to hand over thousands of pages of FBI documents to his defense counsel in his original trial.
McDavid, 37, served three days short of nine years in custody before US District Judge Morrison England agreed to reduce his sentence to a lone count of conspiracy and released him on time served.
