Anarchism in the Andes

From Diario16 via El Libertario, translation by Anarchist News.

by Jorge Zavaleta Alegre (Lima)

Anarchism has a long history in Latin America, dating back to 1860 when the ideas of Prohudon and Bakunin's about peaceful and violent struggles came from Europe, in manifestations of individual and collective heroism, in organizational efforts, in oral, written and practice, in literary works, in theatrical, pedagogical, cooperative, community experiments, etc.

BLM Should Learn From Anarchists

BLM Should Learn a Thing or Two From the Anarchists of 1919
From Liberty Nation GenZ

By: Leesa Donner

What do the anarchists of 1919 and the Marxists leading Black Lives Matter have in common? Quite a lot. If this is merely the leading edge of chaos and anarchy, American history may provide some valuable lessons for radicals.

Vegan Bunnies Deconstruct Gender

From El Libertario, translated by Anarchist News

Peruvian anarchist artist and their urban art deconstruct topics of gender

by Sergio Jiménez

With respect to how she defines her art, she points out that she makes what 'springs from her' and what carries 'the pure and hard sentiment from the streets', be it 'painting a graffiti as vandalism or making the prettiest mural in the whole world', because 'you can't limit what the heart and mind demands'.

What Antifa Is, What It Isn’t, and Why It Matters

From War on the Rocks by Michael Kenney and Colin Clarke

The Antifa label has become a political cudgel wielded by politicians who are more intent on demonizing political opponents and framing terrorism as a partisan issue than on countering the most dangerous groups operating on U.S. soil. After all, Atomwaffen has murdered several American citizens and had its members arrested with bomb-making materials, while Antifa has smashed store windows and engaged in street brawls. To understand why Antifa has become a popular bogeyman for some public officials, it is critical to understand what the group is, what it isn’t, and why it matters.

The Return Fire Movement: Self-preservation is a human right

From San Francisco Bay View via AMW

After a few weeks of rebellions in dozens of cities nationwide in response to the police murders of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Black people, in the Bay Area and beyond, have begun to plan to live in a post-COVID-19 society and a post-2020 rebellion society, which basically translates into us realizing en masse that we have nobody to depend on but ourselves for protection, safety and everything else. This is not a new concept for some, but it is very new for others.

Anarchy in the Streets of Philadelphia

In Philadelphia, radical politics seem to have allowed radical leftists to destroy property with impunity. Mr. Feibush says Philadelphia police have dutifully investigated the property crimes against him and his business, but to his knowledge no one has been charged or prosecuted: “The feedback I receive is they can send over [the evidence] they have, but they don’t believe the DA’s office will prosecute.” Mr. Krasner’s office, he says, harbors an “unwillingness to do anything to these groups.” As a result, “they’ve clearly become more and more emboldened over the years.”
