TENSIONS WITH REFORMISM AND THE CONSTITUENT PROCESS IN THE MIDST OF FIRE AND RIOTING IN CHILE

That is why, unlike those who claim that society is a victim of the implacable power of the State, we remain in affinity with our comrades who, throughout history, have shown the symbiotic and inseparable relationship between State and Society, revealing the very complicity of citizens in their own domination and that of other individuals.

Repression Against Anarchists in Belarus – Call for International Solidarity

Now, with the start of unprecedented protests for Belarus, the authorities are concerned about the popularity of anarchists, and they are beginning another round of repressions.

Stuart Christie, 1946-2020

From Kate Sharpley Library

By John Patten

Stuart Christie 1946-2020 Anarchist activist, writer and publisher

Born in Glasgow and brought up in Blantyre, Christie credited his grandmother for shaping his political outlook. His determination to follow his conscience led him to anarchism. It also led him from the campaign against nuclear weapons to joining the struggle against the Spanish fascist dictator Francisco Franco. Committed to anarchism and publishing, Christie appeared at many bookfairs and film festivals, but scorned any suggestion he had come to ‘lead’ anyone anywhere. Christie’s partner Brenda died in June 2019. He slipped away peacefully, listening to “Pennies From Heaven” (Brenda’s favourite song) in the company of his daughter Branwen.

Solidarity with the Uprising in Belarus

From Anarchists Worldwide

Berlin, Germany: Solidarity with the Uprising in Belarus

In this situation, the anarchist movement is almost the only political force agitating at the base of society, offering a real alternative to (state) capitalism and oppression. Therefore it is involved at the center of the current uprising, as well as supporting those who were hurt or arrested. As internationalists we declare our solidarity with the peoples uprising in Belarus and call for the support of the anarchist forces in Belarus.

Disruption Towards Freedom

From It's Going Down

“Disruption Towards Freedom”: Marquis Bey on Anarcho-Blackness

During our discussion we talk about what anarchism and Blackness bring to each other, autonomous and stateless forms of life that resist radicalized capitalism and the State, how abolitionist, Black feminist and transgender theory has influenced these ideas, and touch on the recent rebellion in the wake of the police murder of George Floyd.
