Word from Eric amid the COVID-19 outbreak

From supportericking.org

We have word from Eric. FCI Englewood has cancelled visits for 30 days. However, staff has yet to wear masks into the facility. With the BOP on a hiring freeze, it is going to get really interesting if prisoners start to get sick. The BOP has issued a statement saying that attorney visits are also suspended for 30 days.

How to to deal with isolation and loneliness and anxiety during the covid crisis. The latest episode of Live Like the World is Dying features a discussion with Aine from the Jane Addams Collective about how to manage mental health during all of this.

TOTW: Same Pandemic, Different Day

Heading into the second week of this oh-so-euphemistic Shelter-In-Place, I want to look beyond the immediate boredom and struggle of confinement. When we finally emerge from this enforced hibernation, what will the world look like? I imagine pretty much the same, but with some temporarily clean-ish air and maybe some more empty-ish streets. I also foresee a lot more of our friends unemployed or at least more precarious.

The Plague and the Fire

We are building this site to address the situation that arose from the Korona virus epidemic.

Faced with a global scourge, we need to share radical reflections beyond linguistic and national borders.

Because fire can arise from the plague.

And fire can bring freedom.

This site was born from the desire to share reflections and materials on the consequences of this epidemic. Nurture a discussion that allows you to compare the critical tools that give everyone the opportunity to act in the present.

Anarchy in Albion: Building utopia in the heart of Yorkshire

Anarchy in Albion: Building utopia in the heart of Yorkshire

From Freedom News UK

I often seek solace at the Brotherhood Church.

This may sound like an odd statement for an anarchist, but — despite its name — I am not referring to some religious cult or new-age retreat. I am talking about a Tolstoy-inspired, anarchist commune which has stood in defiance of authoritarianism, ecological decline and warfare for the best part of 100 years. It is an incredibly diverse ecological paradise, which meets the needs of people and wildlife alike. As an urban farmer, it never fails to inspire and enlighten me.

An Anarchist Perspective on the Coronavirus Pandemic

An Anarchist Perspective on the Coronavirus Pandemic

From Anarchists Worldwide, Chile

On a particularly chaotic Friday afternoon, Piñera inaugurated the nationwide chain reaction to the pandemic. Since the beginning of March, fear of the virus has slowly entered the conversation: between the agitated return to classes that seeks to be a replica (like an earthquake) of the October Revolt, the massive feminist demonstrations, the radicalization of the reactionary sectors and the imminence of the plebiscite, it is taking on more and more importance.

The Impetuous Germination of Anarchy

The Impetuous Germination of Anarchy

From Anarchists Worldwide, Argentina, by Pampa Libre Cell (FAI-FRI)

The handful of reflections that follow have come to us almost unintentionally. They are one more contribution to the debate on the issues that move us; a small stop on the troubled road we are now travelling. It is good to share visions about what worries us and throw them like a bottle into the sea…Perhaps they will serve to fertilize the sowing and/or sharpen the tools suitable to advance in the realization of what we dream…To all the warriors of praxis a sincere embrace from the region that fails to dominate (as they would like) the self-proclaimed state of Sargentino. May 1000 new rebellions flourish.
