The four-month old insurrection in Hong Kong is generating a new politics. No-one can say clearly what the outcome of this conflict will be. But even if what lies ahead is a tragedy or a farce, the significance of what created it can’t be lost. What’s happening in Hong Kong is a “revolution,” its glory is in the revolution itself.
This week I had the opportunity to sit down with Margaret Killjoy to talk about her new EP called Every Breath Our Last out this October from her one woman project Nomadic War Machine. Margaret is a writer, musician, and anarchist based in Western North Carolina. We got to talk about a lot of things in this episode, including her new EP, what went into making it, Nomadic War Machine as a project in general, and her new anarchist fiction podcast called We Will Remember Freedom.

Join us at Interference Archive (Brooklyn, NY) as we show two episodes of the subMedia documentary series, Trouble, with episodes #19 (Quiet Storm) and #5 (You Are Being Watched:Movement Defense Against State & Corporate Surveillance).
Both on the theme of challenging the technological Megamachine.
Trouble #19: Quiet Storm
Ever since the anarchy bang episode on music, in which the word anarchist was thrown around like a frisbee for a caffeinated border collie, I've been pondering (and harassing my friends with the question of) how one determines whether something is anarchist or not. In the podcast episode, it was a. if the artist called themself an anarchist, b. if the content was about anarchist topics (?), c. if the content reflected anarchist values, d. if the listener felt anarchisty (?!?!?) when listening to it, e. if the musician felt anarchisty while making it, and f. all creativity is anarchist.

Other projects will likely rise-up from the end of this one, but this project grew to be too difficult to manage (and you know how we feel about management). This project started very small and had no intention of reaching its present scale. In line with ultra-left thought, we know that organizations, projects, etc. come and go, and that such a cycle is necessary, but that class struggle itself does not end until all are free.
