Hapax 13 "Pandemic" has been published

Most of the included texts were prepared half a year ago, and for various reasons they’re being published late. However (sadly) what’s presented here hasn’t aged in the least. “What the Virus Said,” which got a lot of responses on this blog, Bifo, Vaneigem, and others are as fresh as ever, and paired with “Two texts regarding contact tracing applications,” Lee Jingkyoung’s submission from South Korea, they should convey a new dimension of politics.

Welcome to Father Frost Against 2021 - festival

From Avtonom, Finland

Please note that because of border closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival will most likely be postponed to the spring or summer of 2021, and held under a different name. The new festival date will be announced no later than December 1. On December 1, we will share information about how to apply for a Finnish visa and crossing the border.

As of now: From 7 to 9 of January, in Helsinki, the annual cultural and political festival "Father Frost against" will take place. Here, on a politically neutral territory, we together (organizers / participants / guests) will create a temporary autonomous zone free from hierarchical forms of interaction and discrimination. The festival is organized by local activists, as well as participants from various horizontal initiatives, libertarian, left-oriented and anarchist communities in Russia and the post-Soviet area.

Toward an Army of Ghosts on Immediatism Podcast

Tom Nomad would like to see anarchists operate in increasingly illegible ways, whilst conducting real-time analysis about police operations, as explained in this companion volume to The Master's Tools. To challenge the state, anarchists must operate within the gaps in police coverage, with the intention of disrupting policing itself, which is what enacts the state in material reality. Thinking theory itself is action, and has value to the extent that the theorizing we are doing interrupts policing and so disrupts the state.

One year after the popular revolt, the anarchist fire is gaining strength

even churches in Chile?

From Act for Freedom!, Chile

“…when you look for alliances, you end up modifying your objectives in the name of the political justification of the struggle: a “better future”. Not realizing that faith in the future is essential for the perpetuation of domination. Always living in the future is precisely the traditional method for not living here and now, moving away from the permanent conflict implicit in the anarchist war for ever …

Basically, behind this positioning are concealed outdated instituting positions. True to the echo of the siren song, some have heard verses of praise to freedom – which resonate at the dawn of every revolution – without knowing that in reality they are just hymns to the new constituent Power.

As we’ve seen during the Covid-19 pandemic, the State takes advantage of the situation with (offline and online) monitoring, controlled by police and also through technological devices, for example CCTV, smart phones, etc. Their reasons for this situation are, as we know very well, is in the name of public safety, which is an illusion repeated over and over.
