It's been about a year's worth of https://anti-civ.net! anti-civ.org was launched late 2016 (as far as we remember). Then the whole thing was relaunched (as the present incarnation) in March 2017. And in October it moved to https://anti-civ.net. One year ago to the day, we announced the relaunch over here on anarchistnews.org—so today seems to be as good as any day to do a little reflection.
From It's Going Down
In the early morning of Monday, April 9, 2018, the current invasion of the ZAD began. This land-occupation near the village of Notre-Dames-des-Landes is still under siege after nine days of tear gas, concussion grenades, drones, clubs, tanks, and attack dogs. Like the famous French children’s song, the imperial assault began on a “Lundi matin” and continued every day of the week until the following Monday when it started all over again. This is now the second week of the siege.

From The Brilliant
Scott Crow has been a good friend for years. We agree on almost nothing except on how to disagree. As a grown adult I've probably had the longest conversations on record with Scott. We are both talkers. We both have a bit too much pride in our ability to convince people by using our words. I'm not sure we ever consider ourselves convinced, or convincable, by others. We power on.
As we go to press, hundreds of squatters and eco-rebels are battling against cops at La ZAD in France. We interview someone there, as well as a participant in The Syrian Revolution about the no-state-solution to the Syrian government’s ongoing attacks on rebel areas. The treesits in West Virginia against the Mountain Valley Pipeline are expanding. Anarchist prisoner Sean Swain needs support.
We recorded and released this piece in 2015 but that version of the text omitted some key parts. So in anticipation of this years May Day we have reformatted the zine and rerecorded the audio. We hope this beautiful story gives you the strength and inspiration to sprout forth for spring.
Bursts spoke with a comrade y’all might recognize, a Camille who lives on the ZAD, or Zone To Defend in Notre Dame De Landes, Britanny, France. Camille and Bursts spoke in January upon the announcement of the French government’s decision to cancel the building of an airport to replace the one in Nantes. After literally decades of struggle, and nearly a decade of squatting and on and off fighting of the cops who attempted to evict the community, the ZAD protests won. Sort of.
