We continue to spread the epidemic of anarchist and insurrectionist rage:

Public response to a misdiagnosis that circulates on the internet.
To the anarchists of Mexico and the world, to all the witches fighting in the universe.

Dispossessed of everything that would allow us to recognize ourselves as human beings, we continue to live in the time of being chained to boring and absurd jobs. What do we have? What is it that we possess? All kinds of debt: rent, cell phone bills, car payments and the costs of all the rags which show that we’re hip. What is really ours? A mocking and miserable future which awaits us at every second with only one real affirmation, the sole certainty our lives hold: to be owners of nothing but our labor power: our minds, arms, legs, vaginas, asses that we sell to the highest bidder, who will pay us whatever dollar amount, who will be the owner of our body & mind, our dreams and wishes.

Cancún, Mexico: Explosive Attack Against the PRI Municipal Management Committee by ‘Attack Cells Against Devastation’

We are not willing to accept any kind of government or domination.

Shortly after the elections and without taking leftist attitudes, we wanted to leave our opinion about their political parties at their doors. We no longer accept the role of observers of this circus, where the rulers are just puppets of those who hold real power, whatever their party, it’s nothing more than an illusion to make them believe they have a choice when in reality everyone works for the same master, murdering living beings, destroying the earth, taking control of our lives and everything around them.

(Mexico) Anarchist Statement to those who support the National Indigenous Congress

As anarchists and other libertarian individuals, we see electoral representation as a hoax in the processes of individual and collective liberation of the people: to enter into the legal, public and symbolic mechanisms of the STATE is to delegate our freedom to others so that they may decide for us; what in practical terms translates into the voluntary abdication of our capacity for choice and action, that is to say, the voluntary abdication of exercising our freedom.

ON THE 11TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ASSASSINATION OF ANARCHIST ACTIVIST BRAD WILL. - By Warcry

11 years ago today, I heard that one of my best friends, a true comrade and someone who was my only family, a brother to me, would never come home again. The news that our beloved anarchist activist friend Brad Will had been fatally shot by police, while filming an uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico, eventually reached his family and friends. Around the world, hundreds of people mourned Brad, who had touched many lives in the movements he had participated in and loved. The people of Oaxaca also expressed their appreciation for his solidarity and sacrifice. They paraded down the street with his coffin and picture. To them, he was not just a “gringo” who came as a spectator, but someone who cared about their resistance enough to risk his personal comfort and safety for their community and political struggle.

10.10.17: To the rebellious compañerxs

I write to all those who build their paths of autonomy, to remember that within these walls we try to steal our precious time from the machinery, generating moments of clarity in a suffocating world…that is how, in recent years, proposals for resistance have emerged, from isolated struggles in forgotten areas, screams that are lost in the darkness, to moments of informal organization in the daily life of the open regime, in other words in the general population, where almost three years agao the idea emerged to create an alternative space where prisoners could show that there is already enough of such annihilation, we know that the prison system is designed to subject our minds and bodies to the structure of commerce, so we are not going to ask them to change, we know that money is the language of the powerful and for that reason we have no requests, we just want to self-manage our lives within these walls because we know that all their social rehabilitation programs seek to create are submissive, repentant, guilty beings who will accept slave labor at the hands of prison officials.
