TOTW: Against the map makers

even anarchist map makers?

Topic of the week - Anarchist decolonization. Settler colonialism is ongoing and continues to play into the fabric of contemporary society, and what this means for resistance becomes a critical question for anarchists who seek radical liberatory visions of the future. Continuing the long tradition against colonialism, the state, and capitalism, this week we’re taking a look at anarchist decolonization.

Prioritizing in the face of the social avalanche

via A las barricadas, English translation by Anarchist News

ALB Noticias.- Today the FAGC has briefly reappeared on twitter to summarize its activity during these months of pandemic. We reproduce the tweets that you can see with their interactions here. We are happy to hear from this group which is so combative and indispensable.

WITH BLOODSHOT EYES & THE DAGGER IN THE NECK OF THE BEAST

from Anarquía.info, English translation by Anarchist News

Far from the academy and the great theoretical writings, this writing has the objective of contributing a diminutive grain of sand to the anarchic offensive, from the perspective of black anarchism and its fight against all of the existent. By black anarchism, I refer to an anarchism of praxis, away from the specimens that in recent times have been manifesting in the Chilean region, imposing that "red & black" that every day has more place in the spaces of the "anti-authoritarian" struggle.

About the Statement of the Libertarian Workshop Alfredo López in Havana

from A las barricadas, English translation by Anarchist News

by Octavio Alberola

Due to serious health reasons in my family environment, I was unable to comment on the recent Statement of the comrades of the Alfredo López Libertarian Workshop in Havana nor to the reaction of comrade Gustavo Rodriguez. I do so today because I consider it urgent to manifest that solidarity between colleagues should not impede criticism, if it is considered to be well founded; but also that it must stem from the (libertarian/anarchic) right to have a discrepancy in a fraternal debate and of mutual respect.

Constructing an Anarchism: Collective Force

from Libertarian Labyrinth

In general, I’ve had pretty good luck keeping up with the demands of the project, despite all of the distractions of multiple crises. This weekend I’m running a bit low on steam. So the post connecting the discussion of governmentalism with that of collective force will follow this post—which is perhaps not a bad thing—and should then be followed by a post discussing the polity-form, before I get to next week’s discussion of the question of the aubaines and exploitation.

English RUMOERRRR #3

from RUMOER

Yes, finally, RUMOER number three is here!
Besides the global unrest because of the pandemic, lots of things have been going on, like after the police murder of George Floyd but there is also a statement about the fire on Lesbos. In this edition you can read news from far away and nearby, but also a poem, a nice prison escape-story, and more.

The Security State, Far Right and Media Post-January 6th

from The Final Straw Radio

This week on the show, you’ll hear two segments: chat with Spencer Sunshine on the far right and the government’s reaction following the riot on January 6th in DC and some perspectives on political content removal and social media from anarchist media platforms ItsGoingDown and CrimethInc.

We did not know Aragorn personally, but it is undeniable that all the energy he devoted to the anarchist milieu was felt among us.

Interview with the team behind antijob.net

Interview with the team behind antijob.net

From Anarchistische Groep Amsterdam

"We have to work most of our lives. Our efforts, time, ideas, successes and failures are compressed into rubles, dollars and euros – impersonal banknotes, which are constantly lacking to fulfill our desires and needs. Typically, work is fraught with wage delays, employers’ machinations, nervousness and humiliation from idiotic rules and bosses fooling around."

That’s how antijob.net, the most successful anarchist project from Russia, starts it’s manifest. It’s a website where workers can leave a review on their (ex-)bosses, helping each other in finding the job that sucks less. AGA took an interview with the team behind it.
