From Pramen

Over a year ago our website and group in vk.com (the most popular social media site in post-USSR countries) were blocked by decision of court, considering information on the website to be extremist. Several weeks ago new round of attack from Ministry of information came. The new group, created after the blocking, was blocked also. At that moment it had around 1450 subscribers.

Care is at the Heart, an Interview with Marina Sitrin

For this interview we (carla and Nick) sent Marina Sitrin a ‘preamble’ outlining some of the ideas behind our book Joyful Militancy (available here!), and then included a couple questions based on Sitrin’s other writings (especially Horizontalidad: Voces de Poder Popular en Argentina). We do not include the preamble here because as time went on in the researching, interviewing and writing of the book our ideas and articulations shifted. For that, we are deeply indebted to all our interviewees who offered new insights and shed light on areas that needed reworking. Instead we have added a short overview about the book, below, so the interview can stand alone. Our website also includes the book’s introduction and other excerpts.

Some of us believe various forms of strong cryptography will cause the power of the state to decline, perhaps even collapse fairly abruptly. We believe the expansion into cyberspace, with secure communications, digital money, anonymity and pseudonymity, and other crypto-mediated interactions, will profoundly change the nature of economies and social interactions.

In this episode, we drink some basic beers, and talk about leftist organizations that pass themselves off as revolutionary, but really just function as cults. I was a member of one of these groups before really identifying with anarchism, and that experienced solidified my commitment to the big @, and still informs my politics. Anyone who's ever wondered what it's like to sell Leninist newspapers in the street should watch!

From Freedom News UK

As street confrontations continue to escalate between self-appointed guardians of American Fascism and various anti-fascist factions, PM Press released author scott crow’s collection Setting Sights: Histories and Reflections on Community Armed Self-Defense. Drawn from an interview that initially centered on community self-defense, the conversation rapidly sprawled to touch on other topics. Given Crow’s three decades of experience in activism and organizing, the result is rich. What follows are excerpts that address key aspects of Crow’s work: anarchist ideas, community, decentralized political organizing, and self-defense.

Translated from an anonymous submission to Bordered by Silence

Last week saw a new wave of repression targeting anarchists in France, with raids occurring almost simultaneously in several locations. On March 27 in Toulouse, two houses were raided and two people were placed in detention, but they were taken 300km away to the city of Limoges. These two people were released 38 hours later, after a long interrogation on their political positions and social networks.
