Friday again? No problem.......


Hey scrubs, Critical Mass Crew here! You may have heard our call to action in our previous post (if not you can read it here). Here's a summary: "Shit's fucked, anarchists are alone as usual, and it's time we start acting on our own behalf."

The Brilliant - Episode 99: Carrie, Thelema, Anarchy

From The Brilliant

Among the people I met in the Berkeley Anarchist Study Group (aka BASTARD) are people I should have met more generally. I'm referring to the reading group this way because I have found that in the last 20 years the number of places where you might meet an (anarchist) interesting person has shrank dramatically. Maybe I'm not giving the hardcore/metal scene enough credit but there seems to be slim pickings anytime I dip into that world nowadays. Carrie (the interview subject of this episode) is an incredibly interesting person who I never would have met if the circumstances weren't exactly what they are and I'm sorry for that. I'm sorry Carrie hasn't been a larger part of my life. Listen to the interview and it'll be clear why. Late in the interview I talk about a possible experiment around religion and spirituality. Probably we'll talk about that more as the year goes on.

Critical Mass! Get Off Your Ass!

Critical Mass is a project to get anarchists out into the street and causing trouble. Every month until May Day there'll be a new challenge which independent anarchists and crews will be able to creatively solve, naturally leading into higher levels of struggle with the systems of control with the intention of making an especially explosive May Day 2020.

TOTW: Fear and Decision on New Year’s Eve

oh shite, they spotted us

The date is December 31st of 2019: Governed subjects everywhere are the target of fear from state terror, channeled into obedience and acquiescence by the chilling effect of repression. Blackmailed into compliance by the economy, their subsistence on the line. Looming deadlines summon waves of dread which plummet like lead in your gut. Panic triggered by cyclic crisis flows through your nerves like strychnine.

Generalized anxiety has been called the dominant affect of our era. We all seek shelter in delusions of Safety and Security, in denial of the fact that we'll die anyways, so we should enjoy doing what we want. Everything that we want in life is on the other side of that fear, and the only path is through it.

In Kiev, anarchists set on fire cell tower

From, From the editorial mail dated 27 December 2019:

Anarchist sites report that in recent months in Donetsk and Kiev region base stations (aka towers) of mobile operators were attacked 4 times. Behind the attacks are mostly anarchists.

The first attack was to blow up the base station of the Phoenix operator. Then it was reported that two Lifecell towers were set on fire. December 10, 2019 it was reported about the arson of the mobile base station “Vodafone Ukraine”.
