From Fifth Estate # 399, Fall, 2017 by Bill Weinberg

A former community center that hosted a youth rock scene is now being occupied by activists, seemingly ignored by the authorities. A few blocks away, urban farms are bright patches of green in the landscape, producing vegetables and fruits for the community.

Oakland? Detroit? Manhattan’s Lower East Side?

Nope. This is Havana.

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.

By MLB, from Fifth Estate #397, Winter 2017

Since the 1960s, Ernesto (Che) Guevara has been celebrated in leftist circles, and even among some anarchists as the model of a revolutionary.

A wide variety of musical and theater productions, political posters,T-shirts, bumperstickers, as well as advertisements for vodka, jeans, laundry soap, and promotions for church attendance bear his iconic image and proclaim: “Che, live like him!"

Cultural Appropriation & Shaming

From Fifth Estate #397, Winter 2017

On college campuses, in urban squats, at hip city venues, and at anarchist events, one often sees young white people sporting dreadlocks or Mohawk haircuts. However, there has been an increasingly aggressive push- back by those who designate this as cultural appropriation and are confronting and shaming those they deem guilty of the practice.
