This journal is an invitation to break with the existent, to accept the clash with power in all its magnitude and complexity, aware this is a road of no return, where we don’t know what we could encounter. When we decide to go beyond the confines of the pre-established we leave monotony and the routine of city life behind, we break enslaving schemes and dogmas, venturing into permanent and unstoppable conflict. There’s no remorse, no regret, no steps backwards in this freely and individually made choice, which we accept with all that it implies.

Welcome to the Anews podcast. This is episode 71 for July 6, 2018. This podcast covers anarchist activity, ideas, and conversations from the previous week.
Weekly Assertion: SUDS
Affinity is exactly this: a reciprocal knowledge between comrades, shared analysis that lead to prospectives of action. Affinity is therefore directed on one hand towards theoretical deepening and on the other towards intervention in social conflictuality.
From Sprout Distro
This is our monthly round-up of anarchist zines and pamphlets published in June of 2018. We do these posts each month with the goal of increasingly the visibility and circulation of these zines and highlighting the diversity of thought that exists within the broad anarchist space. As always, we don’t necessarily agree or disagree with everything included in this post.
From The Local Kids
The year is 2018. Our living environment is increasingly interconnected and transparent. This is obvious for the digital reality but is also true for the physical – if the distinction between the two hasn’t already become too artificial. These tendencies have reinforced the validation of the self through affiliation to a group and subjugation to its norms. Before our eyes identities are being constructed, clashes erupt in the scramble for a space to carve out and claim. A bonus for its members is that the enforcing of the norms now is horizontally distributed. As society becomes more totalitarian, the main feeling becomes anxiety. Will for one more day our imperfections pass unnoticed, or maybe just tolerated? And while we invest everything in this socially acceptable image of ourselves we have created, we become the role we were only playing. Is this life?

'Of Gods and Country' update. MD newspaper shooter and facial recognition software. Colonizers and headhunters in 'Severed.' Identity politics, social media, and seeing faces on a new virtual landscape and the rise of a new ethno-nationalism. Dear Antifa.
After a brief pause we resume an irregular publishing rhythm fueled by our hatred of this techno-prison world. Our last few months were busy with shaping our small project for the future. In the coming weeks we’ll be posting a new Dark Nights zine as well as some solidarity posters and other compilations of writings.
