Where has our politic gone? Our terminology has been popularized and also completely misinterpreted. Direct action, doing what needs to be done ourselves without asking, has come to mean doing pressure based civil disobedience. We target empty symbols militantly: taking down statues, doxing degenerates, collectively de-platforming from Facebook (seriously?), and finally black bloc demos which usually demonstrate the aesthetic of dangerousness and the reality of impotence. It doesn’t feel good to shit on something for being weak, but why are we weak?
Below are the newest zines released including the looong awaited (my bad) compilation zine "INSURGENCY: An Anarchist Journal of Total Destruction". I personally would like to thank everyone who contributed writing to that. I apologize for the delay with it. I wanted to make sure everyone had plenty of unpressured time to finish writing their contributions.
These zines below including many others will be available at the Warzone Distro table at the upcoming Green Scare Anarchist Bookfair May 11th-12.
The Radical Education Department, in their response to Nothing to Syndicate, asserts that Occupy, anti-ICE struggles, and anti-racist struggles were “almost always expressing precisely working class concerns”. This is blatantly untrue. ICE detainees generally identify first as migrants. Occupiers rallied in public parks, not workplaces. The unemployment rates in Ferguson were three times higher than the national rates. “Worker” is not an identity these people in revolt took for themselves, it is one that class-reductionist leftists foisted unto them.
