(A Response to “Beyond Negativity: What Comes After Gender Nihilism?”)
“We are radicals who have had enough with attempts to salvage gender. We do not believe we can make it work for us. We look at the transmisogyny we have faced in our own lives, the gendered violence that our comrades, both trans and cis have faced, and we realize that the apparatus itself makes such violence inevitable. We have had enough."
From It's Going Down by Edelweiss Pirates
Announcing the release of a new green anarchist pamphlet from Edelweiss Pirates (authors of Of Indiscriminate Attacks and Wild Reactions). The PDF for pamphlet printing may be found here and for onscreen reading here. The text dates from 5 years ago and represents one pass at a subject that could sustain ten or a hundred passes. Nonetheless, this hopefully sets the stage for writings to come.
From Black and Green Podcast, October 4, 2018
Had the pleasure of swinging by Eugene, Oregon to meet up at John Zerzan’s house over last weekend along with five other current and former editors of Black and Green Review to talk about the journal, direction, discussion about the anarchist milieu and the directions to push anti-civ discussion. Featuring John Zerzan, Evan Cestari, Lilia, Cliff Hayes, and Yank.
The second interview is the heretic series is long time anarchist heretic Rotn. Rotn and I met just before the “battle in Seattle” that really boosted his notoriety (he appeared in 60 minutes in the following weeks) and is a great start to a two decade long friendship. During about a decade of that friendship we were publishing rivals. Me with Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed and he with Green Anarchy.
We are excited to announce the publication of issue one of Backwoods, this one subtitled A Journal of Anarchy and Wortcunning. This journal evolved out of a series of conversations among the other two editors (Fera Sylvain and Thuggy Whiskers, PhD) and me about how we thought there was room for, and a need for, a third anti-civ publication in North America.
With some Portland anarchists filling up pot-holes we felt it fair to revive the green anarchist tradition of attacking roads themsleves, along with railways and shipping routes, since they are like the veins of capitalism and techno-industrial civilization.
With this we also hope to inspire others to turn “public space” into a canvas for expression, play, and engagement. Though here we will warn against allowing yourself to be mapped or read by the authorities.
