The Turnstile Revolution: #FTP3 in NYC

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.

Throwing out the Bread

big words... hopefully you're composting the bread and not just throwing it out

From Anarchytube

Decleration of War on Breadtube in favor for the creation of IRL media cells / collectives / affinity groups.

We need to all take immediate action to negate the recuperation in social anarchist / socialist / leftist communities. We must not be under illusions that any politician, bread-tuber, party, mass political organization will be at all helpful. We are reproducing the very structures that we purport to be against, yet in all seriousness we dont have time to mope around in this late capitalist collapse hellhole. Fuck your boring politics, fuck your corrupt politicians (Bernie, Corybyn, Lula, etc.), lets do something with our lives.

Greece: Gare squatters say ‘The best days have yet to come’

From Freedom News UK

On February 2nd we took the initiative to burglarize our own house. Gare in Athens is not just for its own members, it belongs to the entire movement. We hung a banner in solidarity with the free spaces and in solidarity with D. of Gare banner saying “Power to the wanted Comrade D. Chatsivachiliadi, Solidarity to the Squats, The State is the Only Terrorist”. We do this action in solidarity and also as an act of resistance: our way of fiercely protecting our ideas, our lives, our spaces, our houses, and our futures.

Unemployed anarchist drug users tell Indue Financial Services to “Piss Off”

On 15 November 2019, unemployed anarchist drug users in the notoriously conservative city of Meanjin/ Brisbane, visited the offices of Indue Financial Services Ltd, to express disgust and class rage at this shameless corporate exploiter of the poor. The group operated under the moniker Irredeemable Nihilist Druggies Unashamedly Embracing Sabotage + Undermining Capitalist Killer Systems (INDUE SUCKS).

Pre-Trial Detention of Anarchist Comrade Azat Miftakhov Extended

from anarchists worldwide

Moscow City Court has extended the term in custody of mathematician Azat Miftakhov, charged with disorderly conduct, as reported in Novaya Gazeta‘s live blog from the hearing.

Since Miftakhov has been in remand prison for a year, further extensions of his remand in custody had to be decided in the city court rather than in a municipal district court.
