In summer 2013, we interviewed the Turkish group Revolutionary Anarchist Action (Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet, or DAF) about the uprising that began in Gezi Park. At the end of summer 2014, we learned that DAF was supporting the fierce resistance that residents of the town of Kobanê in northern Syria were putting up to the incursion of the fundamentalist Islamic State.

So after sitting on the fence for the better part of a year, I have to commit to support for and defense of the Rojava experiment, and particularly our comrades in the DAF (Revolutionary Anarchist Action) and the two militias the YPG (People’s Protection Units, in Kurdish: Yekîneyên Parastina Gel) and the women’s militia component the YPJ (Women’s Protection Units, in Kurdish: Yekîneyên Parastina Jinê). Though inspired, at least according to most reports by Bookchin and specifically calling their current political status libertarian municipalism, they seem to have moved very far toward an insurrectionary society indeed.

Anarchapulco is the first international anarchist/anarcho-capitalist conference of its type and will be held in the freest city in North America, Acapulco, Mexico from February 24th to March 1st, 2015 at the Copacabana Hotel on the beach.

Since 2011, the Informal Anarchist Federation (IAF)—a local division of a much wider, global insurrectionary anarchist group: the Federazione Anarchia Informale—has been carrying out scores of attacks on private property across Bristol, England. Now the cops are out to get them and Bristol's wider activist community is being caught up in the search.

“Je ne suis pas Charlie – I am not Charlie!” That is the defiant note being sounded by anarchists in France in the face of the sickening wave of nationalistic reaction sparked by the Charlie Hebdo killings.

“Today, we are no more Charlie than we were yesterday, and death doesn’t transform our opponents or enemies of yesterday into our friends of today,” declares the non-fides site. [http://www.non-fides.fr/?I-m-Not-Charlie-Go-Piss-Up-a-Rope]
