Insurrection is Not a Game : Play, Resistance, and Designing the Game Bloc by Bloc

What is an anarchist game? Is it a game that promotes anarchist values? A game that depicts anarchist activities? A game that subverts and destabilizes power structures? What can gaming theory teach anarchists—and what can anarchists teach through games? To explore these and other questions, we conducted the following interview with TL, game designer and artist of Bloc by Bloc: The Insurrection Game.

Running Down the Walls (RDTW) 2018 was a success in building relationships, feeling the solidarity of running as our imprisoned comrades did the same, and raising funds for the ABCF Warchest and the Revolutionary Abolitionist Community Bail Fund which works to bail people out that are incarcerated at Riker’s Island.

Some comrades just dropped a d-beat demo under the name D-ARREST, so we made a lil de-arrest montage video to go with it. I'm reposting this here because the CC crew is rapidly growing, and since we're all pretty young I thought the A-News comments section would be the perfect place to get some crit feedback / some *ahem* projectual ideas. Right now our site has a lot of activisty report-back content, but we want to move away from that and focus on building connections between diff youth crews.

An 8-year-old told me about Pablo Avendano’s death: “My dad’s friend was just killed riding his bike.” The 8-year-old was a friend of my son, Dai. I had taken the boys out for water ice in our neighborhood in Philadelphia. “He went out to work and he’s never coming back,” my son’s friend said, bobbing on his feet. “And he didn’t even like his job!” Avendano made deliveries through Caviar, the food-ordering app.“His boss is probably in trouble,” Dai said.

TOTW: Religion and Spirituality

I had a good discussion with friends in Montreal this past weekend about the growth in people approaching anarchy through the lens of spirituality, and vice versa. From the burgeoning movement of Christian mystics and radicals through things like the Friendly Fire Collective (which often looks like the religion of struggle) to people engaging with gods and spirits older and younger, the rise in spiritual modes of anarchy is refreshing to me as a phenomenon which offers a challenge to those who “love to indulge in the spurious disagreeable and pointless exercise of ex-communicating the differently-faithed amongst their comrades”.

From June 11

Revolutionary salutations to Marius Mason and all long term anarchist prisoners being held captive by the state, and to all anarchists around the world.

My name is Michael Kimble and I am a long term anarchist prisoner in the state of Alabama. I’ve been imprisoned for thirty-one years and throughout my imprisonment I’ve been engaged in the fight against authority and domination, and the how-to end this miserable existence.

From Hamilton Anarchist Support

We write this just to give a quick update on the rapidly changing situation in Hamilton. since yesterday, May 31 2018, three more people have been arrested in connection to the so-called Locke St riot: one was picked up by the SPVM in Montreal and was flown to Hamilton, where they are in custody awaiting a bail hearing, and the other two were arrested in Hamilton. One of these people is already out on bail and another will appear again on Monday. Further, the police released an additional three names of people against whom they have laid charges and are seeking to arrest. Charges against all six include mischief against property, unlawful assembly while masked, and variations of conspiracy and counseling to commit those things.
