8th hearing of Phoenix 2 on court: what has been happening

On Monday the 13th of July 2020, another trial in the Fénix 2 case took place at the District Court in Most with the participation of the public. There was no fundamental reversal this time, again. Time passes, resources are continually being wasted and the whole things remains a farce.

Critique of Appalachian Anarchism

via Center for a Stateless Society

In his book "Total Freedom: Toward a Dialectical Libertarianism", Chris Matthew Sciabarra makes the astute observation that “[j]ust as relations of power operate through ethical, psychological, cultural, political, and economic dimensions, so too the struggle for freedom and individualism depends upon a certain constellation of moral, psychological, and cultural factors.” This is something that Dakota Hensley, in his article “Appalachian Anarchism: What the Voting Record Conceals,” seems to implicitly know but not elaborately understand.

Before the Collapse: Optimism & Pessimism

via Red Autumn

There is a subject which is of utmost concern among many of the more conscious Socialists, Communists and Anarchists within the contemporary Political Scenario. A creeping ghost around the corner, a devouring, approaching beast that threatens our individual existences, of the others around us, and of humans and other species around the entire world. It is the logical conclusion and the greatest consequence of the unchecked, careless hunger ever-growth of capitalist industrialization. This ghost which approaches us is ecological collapse.

A Primer on Police Crowd-Control Tactics

These 8 episodes of Immediatism podcast cover an array of topics to help you see crowds and terrain through a policing lens, in order to predict what police behaviors will be. Includes policing analysis of crowds, tactics, formations, and communications, gleaned mainly from a military operations manual, along with other mainstream sources of policing methods.

ToTW: Pick Your Own, Mix and Match

What kind of anarchist best describes you? If you embrace a label (or labels), what are they and why? I have gone by anarcho-feminist, at least until I was confronted by too many others using the same label to mean something totally different. If no existing label suits you, then what one(s) would you coin, and what would define them?

Berlin, Germany: Attack on the Consulate General & Embassy of Belarus (Video & Statement)

We should not forget that anarchists are against not only this presidential election, but against any president in general. The Belarusian people have long known that power corrupts everyone. Lukashenko may be replaced by an opposition politician, who will keep power in the country and continue repression against his own population. We must rise up not to get a new president, but to live without presidents.

From C4SS by Kevin Carson
