Ultra-Left Autonomous Assembly

As the world slides deeper into climate catastrophe and as a tide of revolt against capitalism, the State, cis-hetero-patriarchy, anti-blackness & settler-colonialism re-emerges, we felt it necessary for those of us against the world as-it-is to gather and strategize here in so-called Los Angeles, Tovaangar. A gathering for those of us who bear no faith in electoral politics, reformism, representation or the possibility of a peaceful reconciliation with this world. We often find ourselves isolated & exist on the fringes of the so-called Left.

The Future Remains Open

The Future Remains Open

From Inhabit

A new decade begins with planetary upheaval

Historic wildfires ravage an entire continent, scorching the land in a preview of what’s to come. Trigger-happy politicians prove eager to kickstart another war, just in time for election season. Scandals pile up, indifference mounts. The global economy churns on, stupidly and without remorse. With its latest products, Silicon Valley upgrades the emptiness. Meanwhile, each new scientific report draws the scheduled date of collapse closer.

The Attack on Exarchia, an Anarchist Refuge in Athens

The Attack on Exarchia, an Anarchist Refuge in Athens

From The New Yorker by Molly Crabapple

Before dawn on August 25th, Rafi jolted awake to the sounds of police outside Spirou Trikoupi, a building where he was squatting, in the Athens neighborhood of Exarchia. A muscular twenty-eight-year-old from Kabul, Rafi had been an interpreter for the U.S. military. In 2015, he made the punishing journey across Iran, Turkey, and the Aegean Sea, until he found himself in Exarchia, where anarchists and refugees were transforming abandoned buildings into self-organized sanctuaries. For two and a half years, Rafi had lived alongside ninety Eritreans, Iranians, Afghans, and Kurds, at Spirou Trikoupi, “like a family,” he said.

The Incomprehensible Romanian Anarchist Position

The Incomprehensible Romanian Anarchist Position

From The Transmetropolitan Review by Barabule Cuterescu

I didn’t plan on writing another article in English, but the universe had different plans for me, Barabule Cutarescu, the Moldovan potato, your peasant narrator. It’s too weird of a story not to tell, so I don’t care who I piss off, especially now that I’m chilling in some village outside of Iași. I’m serious, I’m literally fucking freezing right now, but whatever, go enjoy your California sunlight. Us poor, miserable Moldovans will keep sliding down the frozen-ass roads on our way to the magazin general. Yeah, that’s right, Romanian sounds a little French, doesn’t it? So if you’re just a another dumb loser from the US who doesn’t know magasin général means general store in French, now’s the time to catch up and realize people in your country don’t know shit. It’s a serious problem.
