A statement from the Yellow Vests shows the political sophistication we must develop as similar social struggles emerge in the declining United States.
An excellent friend in Paris forwards this:
Pour transmettre aux anglophones qui seraient intéressés…
Call from the Yellow Vests of Commercy to set up popular assemblies
“We will not be ruled. We will not be divided and bought off.”
NO TO RIP OFF! LONG LIVE DIRECT DEMOCRACY!
NO NEED FOR REGIONAL ‘REPRESENTATIVES’!
From It's Going Down
The last weeks our movement lost a comrade.
On Saturday November 10th, 2018 our comrade, Dimitris Armakolas attempted to raise a banner in solidarity with political prisoner Marios Seisidis, in the Athens neighborhood of Petralona (a historical neighborhood of Athens with a powerful political context). In this act, Dimitris climbed an electrical pylon in Merkouri square. The banner read “Freedom to Marios Seisidis,”* and shared information for his upcoming court date on the 21st of November in hope to raise awareness of his case, and increase attendance and support the day of his trial.
Today it has been 10 years since Alexandros Grigoropoulos was killed and since Greece rose up in the 2008 insurrection. We offer this zine now, so that we may better consider what the Greek revolt means to us today. This zine collects writings by A.G. Schwarz. The writings are among the best of the insurrectionary writings that came out in the early 2010s in the United States, with essays covering “The Logic of Not Demanding”, the Greek insurrection in 2008 and lessons that can be learned from it, and discussions of various attempts to try insurrectionary approaches in the United States. The essays are very thought provoking and offer a wealth of valuable insights, especially for those who have been inspired by the courage of anarchists in Greece. Order a hard copy of the zine here from Sprout Distro.
From It's Going Down
In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we spoke with someone about the ongoing repression of anarchists and antifascists in Russia and how it ties into larger waves of State clampdowns against dissent and social movements. We also talk about Russiagate, the band Pussy Riot, and in general how both the US and Russia is seen within the other’s respective counties.
Dmitry Pchelintsev and Andrei Chernov, residents of Penza and suspects in the so-called Network case, have gone on hunger strike, claiming remand prison officials and FSB officers have intimidated them during their review of their criminal case file, something to which they are entitled by Russian law. Several Penza suspects in the case have claimed they have been put in solitary confinement, handcuffed to radiators, and threatened with violance.

As it seems, this Fall's fashion is to wear sharp yellow. As it seems, it's suiting quite well with the blue-white-red flag. As it seems, we must absolutely attend the protest and contribute because people are in the streets, they're without organizations and it's getting riotous. As it seems, if we not attend this means we are forcibly staying on the internet.
We don't give a fuck.
