Janye Waller
In the first segment we talk to Noelle about the case of Janye Waller. Janye is a young Black revolutionary from Oakland, California, who was the only person convicted by a grand jury of property destruction during the 2014 demonstrations in the Bay following the non-acquittal of Officer Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown in Fergusson, Missouri. Noelle is a supporter of Janye Waller and believes that Janye's conviction was a clear case of railroading and racial profiling against a community activist. Janye is now finishing up a 2 year sentence with one year off for good behavior. The interview was held in February of 2017, and Janye is set to be released in coming months, then he's out on parole. You can find out more about his case and donate to his post-release fund at and updates can be found on his support fedbook page and to find out more about some projects Janye was involved with in Oakland, check out the site for El Qilombo

You can write to Janye in the near future by addressing letters to:

Anarchist Observations of the Struggle at Standing Rock
In the second segment I speak with Noah, who is a well established movement medic, anarchist, and participant in #NoDAPL at Standing Rock, about his experiences there and analyses of how this resistance was organized and how it developed. This interview was recorded days before media saw the images of the Sacred Stone Camp burning and having been disbanded, so many of the modes and tenses that we employ are not what we might given the current position of the camps. We talk about a wide ranging set of topics, from what worked in the camps to what the failings were, and how resistance to extraction industries could look moving forward.

I wonder if all the protesters will come back to help clean up the environmental mess they left at Standing Rock?

Nah...probably not.

The Federalist is a neo-fascist outfit that is all-in with the Trumpster.

People were trucking things out, but that's hard to do when the police are evicting you and threatening to arrest you.

versus the damage done by extractive industries, the potential for spill or explosion of a pipeline, the lifeway that forces market logic on needs for survival and disposable 1-time-use...

What the fuck are you talking about, @verified or?

Get outta that basement and breathe some fresh air.

Verified is one of these endless sources of vaguely-almost-but-not-quite-alt-right rhetoric on this site, just like Ziggy and the rest of the usual suspects. Stirner this, feminazi that, fuck leftism, binaries and spooks and theoretical circle-jerks, oh my!

"Potential for spill" vs actual desecration of the land from litter & camp overpopulation? Do as I say, not as I do? The ends justify the means?

There's fault in the tactic of framing pipelines & oil transport as "potential" hazards, when in practice they rarely fail. What the focus should be when framing these arguments is extraction & end-use, that is where the bulk of environmental impact happens.
