From Sprout Distro
First off, sorry for not publishing one of these round-ups for the past two months.
Second, we’d like to encourage people to get into the habit of producing zines. While the trend towards using the Internet as a primary means of communication (particularly as “outreach”) for the anarchist space has been happening consistently over the past decades, it seems that noticeably fewer zines and publications are being produced. There could be any number of different reasons for it, but we find it to be disappointing. We would hope that the lack of publishing is due to anarchists living in face-to-face communities on their own terms, experimenting in autonomy or perhaps in active conflict with the state. Unfortunately, our hunch is that anarchy is ever more absorbing the both the patterns of communication informed by social media and its underlying logic (performance, a quest for likes, an accelerated pace of tweet/retweets/etc).
The following text was composed by anarchists and anti-fascists from the US, Greece, and Italy. It’s an attempt to situate the past decade of struggle in the proper historical context.
On February 15, we call for a movement from below. It is time to act courageously—together. We need a bold, positive vision of the future in contrast to Trump’s white supremacist fantasy. We need to create a world in which people can move freely, where families can find refuge from danger, and communities are brave enough to welcome newcomers and create a shared sense of belonging.
From Anarchy Bang
Anarchy Bang is a weekly call in talk show where we sit around the digital campfire and talk about our favorite topics. This week we will try to have an conversation about Occupy, The Occupy Movement, and what anarchists learned by participating in it.
When we first put the call out for table submissions we were overwhelmed. It is good to see so many people were interested in tabling this event. Many didn't get back to us in time before others confirmed. But here is the good news: (unless we get locked up or some shit like that) we doin' this event again next year! Anyone who didn't make it this year and still interested will get first pick for next year. So here is the official lineup!
