Against Advertising...Destruction

Saint-Herblain, France: Against Advertising, There is Only One Solution – Destruction

Against advertising, there is only one solution, destruction: 6 vehicles burned during a visit to JCDecaux in the night of 12 to 13 July 2020 in Saint-Herblain. It is unbearable to endure more advertising as much as the government propaganda displayed on these same billboards, this visual and environmental pollution should never have existed.

An Anarchist Perspective from Belgrade

Just outside the European Union, Serbia is the latest country in the COVID-19 era in which simmering unrest has given rise to open revolt. In this upheaval, as at the beginning of the Gilets Jaunes movement in France, protesters of every persuasion from fascists and football hooligans to liberals, leftists, and anarchists are competing to determine the shape of future protest movements. In the following account, anarchists in Belgrade describe a week of confrontations in the capital city, analyzing why it is important to prevent fascists from dominating clashes with the authorities and to prevent liberals from delegitimizing such clashes as “violent” or inherently fascist.

3 Years Since the Death of Santiago Maldonado

3 Years Since the Death of Santiago Maldonado

From Anarchists Worldwide, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Three years after the disappearance and assassination of our anarchist comrade Santiago Maldonado, words will never be enough to cover the pain generated by the death in action of a comrade in the hands of the enemy and in the recuperation attempt of the reformists, but we can find those that speak of our convictions, of the surrender even in moments where everything seems to be going downhill, of the comrades who time and again raise their heads and in the darkness of the night or in the hooded street struggle claim the insurrected memory, because that is where neither El Lechuga nor any comrade is forgotten, when we do not let the pain overcome our surrender, when we do not give in and affirm once again the social war that the authority has declared on us long ago.

Anarchism in the Andes

From Diario16 via El Libertario, translation by Anarchist News.

by Jorge Zavaleta Alegre (Lima)

Anarchism has a long history in Latin America, dating back to 1860 when the ideas of Prohudon and Bakunin's about peaceful and violent struggles came from Europe, in manifestations of individual and collective heroism, in organizational efforts, in oral, written and practice, in literary works, in theatrical, pedagogical, cooperative, community experiments, etc.

BLM Should Learn From Anarchists

BLM Should Learn a Thing or Two From the Anarchists of 1919
From Liberty Nation GenZ

By: Leesa Donner

What do the anarchists of 1919 and the Marxists leading Black Lives Matter have in common? Quite a lot. If this is merely the leading edge of chaos and anarchy, American history may provide some valuable lessons for radicals.

Protest turns to riot against the new draconian law of banning protests

9 July 2020, Athens, Greece

Proposed by a self-proclaimed socialist Minister of Public Order (Michalis Chrisohoidis), taking part in a right wing government (News Democracy), assisted by the votes of the self-proclaimed socialist party (KINAL), the greek Parliament approved a junta-inspired bill on Thursday imposing new restrictions to quash and destroy the right to protest, a right integral to the so-called democracies, eg. under the provisions of the new law you will be arrested for joining a protest that hasn’t been authorized by the police. For dozens of years across the world, this has been called a Police State or a Dictatorship but then again the greek governing party’s name is “New Democracy”, which probably means the same, when someone feels the need to affix the word “New” to the political theory of “Democracy” that has been solidified for more than 2.500 years.
