From Sprout Distro

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.

Avoiding the Pitfalls: A Guide for Anarchists

Anarchists have appeared in the corporate media a lot this year, from the first breathless reports on resistance to the rise of the far right to recent appearances in the fashion pages. But not all visibility is good visibility. The Trump regime is looking to popularize an image of anarchists and other activists as a major threat to public order in order to legitimize further crackdowns; fascist organizations have worked hard to capitalize on a media profile of “antifa” as violent and mysterious in order to draw more people into their ranks. Corporate media outlets like the Wall Street Journal are notorious for catering to the reactionary politics of their owners, while even the most sympathetic media coverage can be useful to law enforcement agencies seeking information to use against activists

Gatorna - revolutionary infoportal

Gatorna (”The Streets”) is an anti-authoritarian self-organized media project, which aims to inform and inspire! The site broadcasts information from different class struggles and rebellions as well as encourages revolutionary actions and revolt. Gatorna is not a place for information/news produced by mainstream media, political parties, reformist unions and similar organizations. Gatorna does not compromise with power structures but gives space to non-hierarchical spreading of information and discussions directly from the streets to the streets. Gatorna strives to spread grassroots information in a non-hierarchical way without supporting the construction of ideological dogmas and reflects a multitude of perspectives and experiences. This project is spun out of the idea that we, the radical social movements, to an all greater degree have been getting our information from bourgeoisie press rather than from our own infrastructures. That means that someone else sets the agenda for us and that our own autonomous projects do not become “real” if they do not get any publicity in the bourgeois "public" sphere. It is an impossible situation for a movement whose goals are directly opposed to the interests of the owning class.

Texts on the recent repression against autonomous media projects in France

Over the past couple of months, there have been several acts of repression aimed at autonomous media project in the territory controlled by the French state. Below are two translated texts dealing with this.

The first discusses criminal charges brought against an anarchist comrade for texts published on the long-running anarchist website cettesemaine.info. This site recently decided to stop publishing, while making clear that it is not because of the repression they face, but rather with the limits of counter-info projects and dissatisfaction with how much importance the internet is given in the anarchist space. The comrade's trial is this Wednesday, November 8, in Paris.

The second is from Indymedia Nantes about their decision to ignore a legal demand from the French cybercrime division ordering them to remove communiques about attacks and announcing contingency plans in case their site is blocked in the coming days.

From It's Going Down

There’s no doubt that SubMedia.Tv has been a huge influence on the anarchist movement in North America and across the world, and many people were sad to see the long running show, It’s The End of the World As We Know It And I Feel Fine, finally bow out after many years. However, Frank and his team at SubMedia aren’t throwing in their digital towel just yet, and this month are releasing a brand new show entitled, Trouble. Each month after, the show will feature a documentary on a different struggle. This month, it will be the #NoDAPL fight at Standing Rock.

From Anarchist Agency
Anarchists,

The president is tweeting about us. We’re on the front page of the New York Times. Journalists are clamoring to report on us. Right now there is an elevated interest in anarchism thanks to the spectacular resistance to Trump and the alt-right. Our collective is doing the most we can to take advantage of this opportunity to spread anarchist voices, but we need your help. This is not a plea for donations—we want your views and your voices.
