Ever since the anarchy bang episode on music, in which the word anarchist was thrown around like a frisbee for a caffeinated border collie, I've been pondering (and harassing my friends with the question of) how one determines whether something is anarchist or not. In the podcast episode, it was a. if the artist called themself an anarchist, b. if the content was about anarchist topics (?), c. if the content reflected anarchist values, d. if the listener felt anarchisty (?!?!?) when listening to it, e. if the musician felt anarchisty while making it, and f. all creativity is anarchist.

Letter from an anarchist internationalist in Rojava

From Barrikade dot info

Comrades,

I think it is important now that our voices of Rojava, out of the heart of that battle, are being heard. A fight for the life, for an existance in dignity, for real democracy and for the freedom of all women. I want to tell how the resistance of Serekaniye went on, how the beginning was, how the end was and also what happened in between. Serekaniye right now is in the hands of jihadist groups that are being supported by Turkey, upon approval by the United States. At a time they said there would be a five-day firearm rest.... we didn’t believe it for one second. And that’s how it was - the attackings didn’t stop, maybe

The four-month old insurrection in Hong Kong is generating a new politics. No-one can say clearly what the outcome of this conflict will be. But even if what lies ahead is a tragedy or a farce, the significance of what created it can’t be lost. What’s happening in Hong Kong is a “revolution,” its glory is in the revolution itself.
