Report-back – Gidimt’en Yintah

solidarity means attack!

from Montreal Counter-Information

Full title: Report-back for Wednesday, October 27, 2021 – Gidimt’en Yintah

On wednesday morning an action was put into effect in response to the posturing of RCMP in Likhts’amisyu territory which is approx 40 km away from the Gidimt’en drill site occupation. The action was in solidarity with Chief Dtsa’hyl who, while acting as an enforcement officer for Likhts’amisyu clan disabled 10 heavy machines which were being used to destroy their unceded territory and build a new road, which CGL says they own. It was assumed by police presence and a variety of other factors that enforcement would occur, and it did. The main objective was to show force, solidarity, and defiance to the incursion of the Canadian state and industry on Wet’suwet’en Yintah.

AGAINST THE OBSTACLES OF THE PRISON AUTHORITIES: SOLIDARITY, AGITATION AND ACTION FOR THE LIFE AND HEALTH OF COMRADE FRANCISCO SOLAR! FREEDOM FOR SUBVERSIVE AND ANARCHIST PRISONERS!

The call is to create pressure for the admission of a private doctor and the lifting of any obstacles to adequate treatment. Therefore we call on all those who feel the urgency of the comrade’s life and health to mobilize and agitate to unblock this situation of red tape and obstacles to his care.

Therefore we call on all those who feel the urgency of the comrade’s life and health to mobilize and agitate to unblock this situation of red tape and obstacles to his care. Letters, meetings, agitation, visits to embassies and all initiatives that each comrade, group or collective deems pertinent with in multiform action. Everything helps to bend the infinite restrictions in the world of prisons.

Anti-Engels (or Anti-Anti-Duhring Aktion)

Take that, Engels!

from Center for a Stateless Society

by William Gillis

Recent years have seen a resurrection of a Great Man Of History Marxist scholasticism that fixates on some (easily accessible) Original Core Texts of supposed genius and discards all the complicated stuff afterwards, certainly everything in recent decades. This impulse is the product of a mass flocking to radical leftism wherein new recruits have little interest in assimilating to existing discourses. A “return to the masters” thus serves as a run-around of various gatekeepers and a shrinking of required reading lists. It also enables people to use online historical archives on their own, without much social immersion. Onboarding to the tacit knowledge, prefigurative experience, and diffuse zine-based discourses of anarchism has always been a many-years long process. The onboarding process to academic Marxism — while more hierarchically structured — is likewise similarly involved.

Death as Defiance

from The Anvil Review

An Anarchist Critique of Modern Medicine

“A cell never dies in isolation, but in clear view of its peers…a cell understands better than we humans do the consequences of overstaying one’s welcome. While we humans aspire to immortality, to a cell, immortality is the worst fate possible.”

Haider Warraich, M.D.

The Unsolved Murder of Sean Kealiher

from The Fault Line

Full title: The Fault Line: Dying For a Fight, A Podcast Examining The Unsolved Murder of Anarchist & Anti-fascist Sean Kealiher

Portland-based anti-fascist Sean Kealiher was killed in 2019, months before the uprising that would bring Portland international attention. Nearly two years later, his homicide remains unsolved. His mother, Laura, believes she hasn't received justice because of police hatred for her son and his politics. Dying For A Fight, the second installment in Somethin’ Else’s Fault Line series, goes in search of answers: What happened the night Sean was killed? Why have no arrests been made? Who are the Americans living at the political extremes?

Mischief Night Communique

But what was the mischief? Get scheming!

via Rose City Counter Info

Submitted Anonymously

“We are not slaves, we are dynamite. We are explosive beings with unpredictable reactions.”

On Mischief Night, October 30th, we learned of a concentrated police presence in southeast Portland in anticipation of a gathering at Colonel Summers Park. With Portland Police focused on this small area, we seized the opportunity to attack elsewhere. Gentrifying capitalists in different parts of town faced the force of our rage and mischief. Not a single cop was seen there.

In Defense of Associative Specificity

fuck your team

from Anarquía, English translation by Anarchist News.

by Gustavo Rodríguez

Since the defeat of Spanish anarcho-syndicalism, reiteration is a frequent ocurrence in the Babellian context in which the life of the so-called "anarchist movement" painfully takes place. As if it were "Groundhog Day", we are condemned to repeat the same experience indefinitely. Time and again, the ideological displacements and the conceptualizations of others gain presence in our camp. Thus - again - the notions of "sect", "sectarianism" and "sectarian" emerge in the debate. We don’t have the slightest chance of escaping from this vicious cycle. Like Phil Connors (Bill Murray) in the famous comedy, every day the same song is hammered into us (at six in the morning!), forced to repeat ourselves in an infinite cycle from which not even suicide saves us.

Anarchist Sergey Romanov sentenced to 1 year in jail

Write an anarchist prisoner today!

from ABC Belarus

“All of the above I have said demonstrates the bias of the court and the administration of the colony in order to put pressure on me, discrimination for my political views, which are at odds with the official policy of the current cannibalistic state. Where human rights do not exist in reality. Where repressive agencies are allowed to falsify, beat, torture, and murder citizens without being held accountable, because, as the dictator said, “at times there may be no time for laws. This fascist practice has existed in Belarus for decades, and its time is coming to an end. The time of freedom, law, and justice will come, and this process will not be stopped.”

A Companion to the English Translation of Social Anarchism and Organisation

anarchy in the age of dinosaurs

From Anarkismo by Carl Eugene Stroud

This is a companion to Social Anarchism and Organisation by the Anarchist Federation of Rio de Janeiro. All of the references are to only that text which has become essential reading for social anarchists today. This article summarizes, paraphrases and interprets the original. It is meant to be an addition to the English language discourse on especifismo and social anarchism generally, as well as the FARJ text in particular. There is a link to an audio version with a slideshow presentation at the end.
