Betraying Anarchy? Xin Shiji & The Four Elders

from The Commoner

by Samuel Clarke

Today there is often a great deal of discussion about what makes (or inversely, what does not make) someone an anarchist. This can involve some unfair gatekeeping, say in the outright exclusion of the individualist or market anarchist, but can also involve some very frank discussions about our theory and political praxis. What appears to be universal amongst anarchists (historical and modern), however, is a complete denunciation of electoral and party politics.

Response to the week of revenge for comrade Michael Forest Reinoehl

via Athens Indymedia

Communique to the fighting comrades in so called america, from anarchist Dimitris Chatzivasileiadis, persecuted* for his relation to the guerrilla Organization of Revolutionary Self-Defense

The planned state murder of comrade Michael Forest Reinoehl reinforces our hatred towards the world of authority. In the greek territory, during the last period of bourgeois democracy, we have often experienced personified state executions by order of the authorities. From doctor Tsironis on July 11th 1978, to Michalis Prekas on 1st of October 1987 and Cristoforos Marinos on the 23rd of July 1996. Just as the greek state intended by murdering these fighters, so did the colonial state called USA, on the 3rd of September, aim to send to all the insurgents the message that nobody can surpass the iron law of the rulers’ military domination. We ought to pause for thought on these crucial matters born out of the state’s willingness to commit political murders. Such moments determine the evolution of the social movement for long periods of time.

Call on all anarcho-syndicalist organizations to close all camps

via International Confederation of Labor (ICL/CIT)

We will celebrate the most beautiful feast on the ruins of the 21st century’s greatest hell

We call on all anarcho-syndicalist organizations in Europe and around the world to join the struggle to close all camps and so-called reception centers. Inform the workers in your country about this modern-day crime against humanity and organize events and demonstrations. Let us begin discussions about coordinating a global day of action against the camps. Let us fight against wars and racism until we shut down every last on of these hells. For a new world of freedom, equality and solidarity! The boat is not full! Shut down all camps!

Brunch is Canceled: Biden, Trump, and the Case for Revolution

from Black Rose / Rosa Negra

The moment we are in is one marked by precarity, alienation, and unease. We are in a transition, but it is unclear where to. The only certainty is that the struggle of working people, people of color, queer people, Indigenous communities, and others will continue. If we can sustain the power of this summer’s uprising by grounding it in organization, direct action, and a transformative vision of revolutionary change, then there’s nothing that can stand in our way.

Constructing an Anarchism: Approaching An-Archy

from The Libertarian Labyrinth

What is anarchy? This is a question that I have returned to repeatedly, a bit obsessively, with different results each time. I have come to the conclusion that anarchy is what we might call a still-emerging concept. At times it strikes me as almost shockingly self-evident, bold and bare like the lovers in some one of a thousand anarcho-naturist poems—or sometimes maybe just bold...

IMMEDIATE DEPORTATION TO COPS, JUDGES, POLITICIANS

6th of December 2020

In the context of the gatherings called for the day of remembrance and struggle 12 years after the insurrection of ’08 for the state murder of anarchist Alexis Grigoropoulos by the armed hand of cops Korkoneas and Saraliotis, a new regime of state management with clear totalitarian characteristics is set in motion. Greece enforces its total ban on gatherings and demonstrations, voted a few months before under the pretext of the management of the Covid19 pandemic.

Constructing Anarchisms: Introductory Notes

Constructing Anarchisms: Introductory Notes

From Libertarian Labyrinth

This is the complicated bit—ironing out various wrinkles in the process and trying to tie together the various, still tentative conversations taking places on social media. Lacking any sort of model for this sort of thing, we’ll just have to work through it as best we can. But that’s one of the reasons that we’ve stretched a 12-month course over 13 months.

Solecast w/ Erda: Insurgent Emo Rap

insurgent | emo | rap

From Solecast

Erda makes emo inspired rap music with an anarchist bent. Their music expresses both the existential angst of our epoch and the spirit of resistance. Based out of NY, Erda has a background in various genres of music, and this lends itself to a very unique aesthetic and approach to hip-hop. In this conversation we talk about bridging the personal with the worldly, Erda's background with farming and permaculture and life under the algorithm.
