From Sprout Distro

The Fall 2017 issue of Fifth Estate, the longest running anarchist publication in the United States, is out now. You can order the issue online or get a subscription. As more and more media turns to the screen and the endless stream of ephemeral tweets (both inside and outside of the broad anarchist space), it’s important to support print publications where they still exist.

TFSRadio: Jude & Betty of DefendJ20 Give Updates as 1st Trial Block Finishes

This week, we air a conversation recorded on Friday, after the final arguments in the case of the first trial group of the J20 arrestees, the 194 people facing as many as 60 years in Federal prison for the property damage that occurred on January 20th, 2017, in Washington D.C. during the inauguration of Donald Trump. The march was advertised as an Anti-Fascist and Anti-Capitalist protest against the incoming administration. The march started with as many as 500 participants and ranged 16 city blocks, often chased by police spraying super soaker-style guns filled with OC pepper spray, stingball grenades, concussion grenades and swinging batons.

From Sprout Distro

The following zines and pamphlets were published in the November 2017. We are reposting them here in order to increase the circulation of anarchist publications. We definitely don’t agree with everything contained within, but we feel strongly that a vibrant anarchist space requires – in part – a robust dialog where ideas come into contact and conflict with each other.

This week, Bursts was joined by Pat Boyle, a collective member at Unicorn Riot (more about them later in this post), radical independent media project. We chatted about crypto-currency, Bitcoin in particular, technologies and strategies involved in the implementation of crypto-currency, recent comings to light of increased wealth coming via Bitcoin into the hands of far right racists and ecological impacts of crypto-mining.
