From It's Going Down

It’s Going Down was lucky enough to talk with hip-hop artist Sole on the Solecast podcast. The interview focuses on building mass self-defense, expanding land defense struggles, building autonomous resilience projects, bringing in new people, and addressing major contradictions within society that the State refuses to.

From It's Going Down

When It’s Going Down first launched, our column, All the News You Didn’t Even Know Was Going Down, offered a weekly roundup of revolt and headline news from an anarchist perspective. However, as this project has grown, we’ve seen a growth both in the amount of anarchist media produced in so-called North America, but also in the need for more continuous reporting and analysis of daily life in the Trump era and resistance to it.

In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we caught up with one of the people involved in the Occupied Southwest Distro, which is an insurrectionary and anti-colonial anarchist literature distribution project in the so-called Phoenix, Arizona area (Akimel O’odham Territory). While our previous audio report brought us voices of two teachers who were involved in the strikes, this episode discusses the view from the street, and that of radicals on the outside attempting to support it and intervene in small and tangible ways.

In the early morning of Monday, April 9, 2018, the current invasion of the ZAD began. This land-occupation near the village of Notre-Dames-des-Landes is still under siege after nine days of tear gas, concussion grenades, drones, clubs, tanks, and attack dogs. Like the famous French children’s song, the imperial assault began on a “Lundi matin” and continued every day of the week until the following Monday when it started all over again. This is now the second week of the siege.

In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we talked with two members each of the North American Kurdish Alliance (NAKA), a network of Kurdish people across the US who support the Rojava Revolution and Kurdish self-determination, as well as Demand Utopia, an organization of anarchists and communalists in the Pacific Northwest. Joined with other Kurdish and anarchist groups, such as the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM), the confederation set out to launch actions of solidarity and support on March 24th for the city of Afrin, which at the time was surrounded by the Turkish State.

From It's Going Down by Kevin Tucker

Fake news is an insanely stupid story.

At the very least, it should be. But after a narcissistic, anthropomorphized internet troll beat out an old school, textbook neo-liberal for the United States presidency, it has become absolutely and begrudgingly unavoidable. It serves equally as a phrase used to debunk the exposure of true misinformation as well as a term for the misinformation itself. Somewhere in there is the punch line to a joke Marshall McLuhan might have made up.

From It's Going Down

We begin with a discussion on the recent J20 case, its implications, and what remains to be done in terms of long term support for those still facing charges. We also discuss the past year under Trump, the declining public support and trust in the State in general, as well as the odd situation anarchists find ourselves in now with the heating up of the Mueller investigation.

Errico Malatesta wrote that an organ of the State, deprived of its original function, will either wither and die or, when possible, construct a new function for itself. “A police force where there are no crimes to solve or criminals to apprehend,” he said, “will invent both, or cease to exist.” As we speak, this eventuality is fast approaching the political landscape of so-called America.
