A Russian court has issued harsh sentences to seven antifascist and anarchist activists in a controversial domestic terrorism case marred by claims that investigators tortured the defendants to elicit confessions.

The court in Penza, a city about 390 miles (630km) south-east of Moscow, sentenced the men to terms of six to 18 years in penal colonies for allegedly forming an organisation called Set, which translates as the Network, which prosecutors said planned to carry out future attacks inside to overthrow the government. The men were also charged with an assortment of weapons and drugs charges.

Until now, capitalism has only tottered due to the crises of its internal development, its fluxes of growth and decline. It has progressed from one bankruptcy to another. We have never succeeded at bringing it down, except on those very brief occasions when people have taken their destinies into their own hands.

Eric’s partner posts a blog speaking out about the abuse they are suffering at the hands of FCI Englewood…. She expresses concerns that because of the choice to speak out and share their story, staff would attempt to illegally restrict visits. Staff have been instructed to check his support blog daily as well as numerous newspapers in case any messages are being given to him via the USA Today (lol). 7 hours and 42 minutes later Eric received his first shot (disciplinary write-up) for using the bathroom and being unable to stand for count. 5 hours later he receives another. He received a total of 5 shots in 24 hours. Not standing for count, hanging clothes to dry…

The Turnstile Revolution: #FTP3 in NYC

I.

The global wave of revolutionary uprisings kicked off last year has finally reached the shores of the USA. This Friday, the third #FTP protest took the streets and trains of New York City, the latest demonstration in an emerging movement fighting to win four demands: 1. Free fare on the NYC transit system, 2. No cops on the trains or in the stations, 3. The end of police harassment of street vendors and performers, and 4. Full accessibility for all.

TOTW: You Will Know The Truth, And The Truth Will Set You Free

By now we’ve all heard John Zerzan’s weekly sermons on the dangers of post-modernism lambasting the lack of stable truth and values in our lives. The obviously ideological nature of JZ’s position makes it seem simple enough to disregard for those of us who find no appeal in Truth, he fits the image of mad-eyed (or at least bloodshot) prophet well enough to cause most non-true-believers to avoid his camp. Yet, I think more anarchists agree with at least part of his position than would like to admit, on some less-than-conscious level I might as well.
