The Trial by Franz Kafka displays the life of Joseph K, a bank employee and supposedly good citizen of a society in which there is universal peace. The novel begins abruptly when K is delivered an indictment by three strangers who despite their civilian attire are said to be official warders. Though there is no clarity as to what the charge is, K accepts his proceeding as a personal project or obsession which from then on consumes his reality. His social life becomes a montage of witnesses, corroborators, defendants and testimonies regarding his arrest while authority is an undercurrent driven by everyone and no one. By the essence of its own inertia, K’s world is a banal confinement, a moral prison illuminated by his allegation.

TOTW: Anarchist By Any Other Name
Episode 2: Feb 15, 2018.
Some thoughts on mass shootings and violence, the importance of community and conflict resolution. Anti-missionary intermission, fucking with missionaries. Why I hate philosophy rant and thoughts on "anti-academic" posturing.
In the Bad News show 08 (01/2018) we realeased a short story about the last Chaos Communication Congress (from December 2017) in Leipzig, Germany, that included pieces of interviews taken there. Now we are publishing the full interviews to give you some idea of what the Congress can be.
The Hamilton Anarchist Bookfair is taking place March 3-4 and aims to be a space for convergence and discussion among anarchists and anti-authoritarians from across Southern Ontario. Our hope with this weekend is to contribute to rebuilding a sense of regional cohesion among various anarchist tendencies, to meet each other, share information about our contexts and projects, and find ways to work together to push back the smothering blanket of Canadian progressive democracy to lay bare the antagonisms that contained in capitalism and the state here and everywhere.
We just published the final list of workshop descriptions and tablers and thought we'd take a minute to summarize a bit of what to expect at the bookfair. We got a lot of workshop submissions, and our hope in choosing the ones we did was to highlight the various approaches to the struggle against systems of domination in the region, in order to both emphasize what we have in common and to create productive spaces for engaging with differences.
You've been asking, now here it is. First introductory episode of the new B&G podcast is up at archive.org

Stay tuned until the Repression Roundup to hear about the Black Pride 4.
After a long hiatus, subMedia’s foul-mouthed news anchor, the Stimulator, is finally back with his brand new show…. The Fuckin News!
In this pilot episode of TFN, Stim interviews far-right youtube troll, El Chico Lobo, and covers the alt-right’s pitiful attempt to hold a picnic in Chicano Park. Plus some good ol’ fashioned riot porn from Italy.
This is part two of our interview with Hex, an activist and member of the General Defense Committee who the Alt-Right tried to murder on Inauguration Day outside of a Milo Yiannopoulos. Here continues talking about his feelings of restorative justice, but also gets into Anarchist tactics and how radicals can use Public Records Requests to their advantage.
