Anarchy Bang: Introducing Episode Three. Violence

From Anarchy Bang

Download Episode Two

A hundred people listened in to episode two. Another couple hundred downloaded it and checked it out later. Last week we talked about home (and land). This week we'll try to have an entertaining conversation about violence. Is that possible? Can we go meta enough to have a discussion about why young (and old) men think violence does much more than kick the can down the road?

From the Whiteaker to the Woods: The Rise of the “Eugene Anarchists,” Part 1

From It's Going Down

In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we again return to the topic of the 1990’s, this time in a two part series that will center on the green anarchist and eco-defense movement in Eugene, Oregon. In the first part of the series, we talk with long-time anarchist John Zerzan, and in the second part, we will talk with a member of Cascadia Forest Defense. Born into a working class family, John soon found himself in the strange land of Stanford University, and quickly dove into the radical politics of the 1960s. Originally working as a union organizer, John soon became interested in the ultra-left, the Situationists, and the rioting that was breaking out in Berkeley over the weekends while living in the bay area.

Call for essay submissions: "Beyond Invisible Committees, Autonomist Zones and 'The Commune'"

Call for essay submissions: "Beyond Invisible Committees, Autonomist Zones and “The Commune”: A Few Essays on Individualist Anarchy"

In the era of "rising Communes" and neo-marxism a few of us have decided to put together a compilation zine.

We are searching for essay submissions that critique communization theory, tiqqun, the invisible committee and other forms of "Commune"ism currently trending in anarchist spaces.

Brawling at the Wake: Syndicalism Makes a Cameo Plus Moral Superiority

"Financial institutions hate this but you can eliminate student loans with one simple trick! *image of rich people getting decapitated by guillotines*

I am so horrendously bored at the tired bickering of syndicalists and insurrectos (who in their grand maturity have become antifascists and prisoner supporters, love ya). However, for you my lovelies, I have peeled my forehead from my computer screen without even wiping my greasy sweat, to type a bitter epitome about my love for the beautiful idea. Aside from the german comrade (shout out), I would argue that the different sides of this debate seek to play the role of manager in social struggles. Do you know how I feel about managers? ...DO YOU?!

Anews Day Zero

Before you ask, yes we know we have been down for 48 hours, and yes we know that anews time does not extend prior to that downtime. We begin again from the ashes of a database crash and burn. We'll fix it (although we probably need an expert at innodb) but for now it is more important to get back up and running than be precious about the past.

Perhaps anarchism is more about our glorious future than the past anyways, right? We joke!

TOTW: What "Not Anarchists" Influence Your Anarchy?

Anarchists have never existed in a vacuum. We are a part of the world we live in as much as we might want to destroy that world. We interact with the (not anarchist) world in ways that both influence it and are influenced by it. While this is true on every level of day-today life, it is especially true in how we engage with writing and thinking from outside anarchist spheres.

Eric’s Communication Restricted: Call in to Help!

Eric is still being held at USP Leavenworth after being assaulted by staff at FCI Florence. He still is being held without charges, disciplinary write-ups, or any disciplinary hearings for more than 140 days. He is still under the jurisdiction of FCI Florence and this month when he tried to call his wife for his one phone call a month he found that their communication was restricted and he was unable to call. EK remains without an explanation as everyone refuses to provide any information as to why his phone communication has been cut off.

Relentless repression in Russia: why we will demonstrate on Saturday 19 January

From People and Nature

On Saturday 19 January we will demonstrate in London, in solidarity with Russian anti-fascists. Eleven of them, who have been arrested, tortured and accused of fabricated “terrorism” charges, are awaiting trial. Many others have faced a relentless campaign of persecution by officers of the federal security services (FSB) and the police – which is reviewed in this article.

Please join us on Saturday, to support the Russian anti-fascists and strengthen international solidarity against fascism, xenophobia and state terror. Please re-post and share this article.

Don’t Want to be Your “Second Pillar”: A Response to RED

The Radical Education Department, in their response to Nothing to Syndicate, asserts that Occupy, anti-ICE struggles, and anti-racist struggles were “almost always expressing precisely working class concerns”. This is blatantly untrue. ICE detainees generally identify first as migrants. Occupiers rallied in public parks, not workplaces. The unemployment rates in Ferguson were three times higher than the national rates. “Worker” is not an identity these people in revolt took for themselves, it is one that class-reductionist leftists foisted unto them.

The State Shutdowns, the Commune Rises: #J20 Events Across US

From It's Going Down

In December of 2018, It’s Going Down along with CrimethInc., Mutual Aid Disaster Relief, and the Final Straw all made a call for a week of action and experimentation around mutual aid, community resilience and self-defense, and the creation of survival programs.

F.L.O.W.E.R. on Opposing “Rock Stone Mountain” 2019 + Black Flags Over Brooklyn with Kim Kelly

From The Final Straw Radio

Firstly we’re presenting a conversation that William had with an organizer with F.L.O.W.E.R., which stands for Front Line Organization Working to End Racism, about opposition to a neo confederate rally scheduled to take place on February 2nd at Stone Mountain Park about half an hour’s drive outside of Atlanta, Georgia. We talk about the longstanding history of this rally, which originally was a KKK event, its resurgence alongside the rise of far right activity, and some of what’s been done to oppose it in recent years. We also talk about what to keep in mind when standing against this event and how to learn more and plug in, plus much more.
