Our Position On Elections

While c4ss takes a week off, here's some more basic-ass ancom takes in place of your basic-ass mutualist takes.

from Anarchist Communists Meanjin

Anarchists are often characterized as being opposed to elections or the vote. Yet anyone that has spent any time in an anarchist or anarchist inspired organisation will tell you that voting is our favorite pastime, one which we take almost any opportunity to undertake. Rather than being opposed to elections we would love nothing more than to see them expanded throughout all levels of society. In fact anarchists should be considered as the most strident proponents of elections and the vote.

Solidarity with Køpiplatz! Køpi Bleibt!

We in Anarchist-Communists Meanjin voice our solidarity with Køpiplatz.

from Anarchist-Communists Meanjin

Meanjin (Brisbane) Australia: Solidarity with Køpiplatz! Køpi Bleibt!

We in Anarchist-Communists Meanjin voice our solidarity with Køpiplatz. Like Berlin, Meanjin is also subject to soaring rent prices and gentrification. Districts once overflowing with creative energy have given way to canyons of empty streets polluted with American trash food joints and corporate bars. As we have previously noted, “as long as the working class lacks access to and communal control of their own sustainable housing the crisis will remain, sometimes at a low point and at other times surging upwards. As long as a landlord class remains, homelessness will continue, renters will be exploited and housing will remain precarious.

AUKUS: A Big Step Toward War

War, huh, yeah. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

from Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group

Statement from the Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group about the announcement of the AUKUS partnership. Released 26 September 2021.

The AUKUS partnership announced on 16 September is a big step towards war against China. The centrepiece of its first initiative is the announcement by the Australian Government that it will buy eight nuclear submarines from the United States or the United Kingdom. The reactions to this announcement are almost as significant as the purchase of the submarines themselves.

Why we’re against “mutual aid”

Anarchists: Bread Santa's good little helpers.

from Mutiny! An anarchist-communist publication by Black Flag Sydney.

Socialism is not charity: why we’re against “mutual aid”

For Kropotkin, the tendency of humans to co-operate also made possible the realisation of anarchist communism. Humanity, from a scientific perspective, did not need armies, policemen and capitalists to organise a functioning, harmonious society; solidarity would come to replace authority as the glue that binds civilisations together.

Justice for George Floyd

Justice for George Floyd

From Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group

The United States is aflame with rage over the police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis on 25 May. A cop who had arrested him over a minor crime knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes, killing him. Starting in Minneapolis, demonstrations have spread nationwide, often linking up with local grievances against police violence and racism.

Action for the Week of Solidarity with Russian Anarchist & Antifascist Prisoners

from anarchists worldwide

Received on 03.02.2020:

Twice this week those living and working at the Russian ethnic representative council of Victoria awoke to find their building covered in posters and paint. Nothing particularly unusual for inner city walls in Melbourne, but these were not the usual tags or gig advertisements they are usually faced with and which are often not removed for months at a time.

Unemployed Anarchist Drug Users Tell Indue Financial Services to “Piss Off”

from anarchists worldwide

Unemployed anarchist drug users tell Indue Financial Services to “Piss Off”

On 15 November 2019, unemployed anarchist drug users in the notoriously conservative city of Meanjin/ Brisbane, visited the offices of Indue Financial Services Ltd, to express disgust and class rage at this shameless corporate exploiter of the poor. The group operated under the moniker Irredeemable Nihilist Druggies Unashamedly Embracing Sabotage + Undermining Capitalist Killer Systems (INDUE SUCKS).

Angry Whores Anarcho Brigade Action Against SWERF / TERF NGO Offices

To mark International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, on 17 December, 2019, anarchist sex workers in so-called Melbourne, Australia visited the inner-city offices of a bourgeois SWERF/ TERF organisation to redecorate their offices and express our perspective on their whore-saviourism. Project Respect, a state and federally funded organisation which claims to represent the interests of sex workers has a long history of proving they are anything but an ally to sex workers. The patronising and prudish attitudes of Project (dis) Respect towards sex workers is exemplified in one of their previous campaigns encouraging (ostensibly small-l liberal inner city Greens voting feminist) women to donate their unwanted make up to sex workers in need- never mind the 100s of 1000s of dollars Project (dis)Respect receives in project funding.

Anarchy among anarchists as anti-capitalist clubhouse listed for sale

From The Age, from June 15th, 2019

A legal bunfight between members of Melbourne's anarchist community could cost them their prized clubhouse in Melbourne's inner north.

Sandwiched between two multimillion dollar apartment buildings in Northcote, the diminutive and dishevelled storefront of the Melbourne Anarchist Club has been a beacon of resistance for 30 years.
