Reposted from DefendJ20Resistance.org:

The J20 case has the potential to establish legal precedent for charging hundreds if protesters with felonies: particularly anarchists, the Black Lives Matter movement, and a range of groups targeted by national and local police. Please do what you can to raise awareness before the next trial group, starting April 17th.

In this episode, we drink some basic beers, and talk about leftist organizations that pass themselves off as revolutionary, but really just function as cults. I was a member of one of these groups before really identifying with anarchism, and that experienced solidified my commitment to the big @, and still informs my politics. Anyone who's ever wondered what it's like to sell Leninist newspapers in the street should watch!

Review of Jonathan M. Smucker, Hegemony How-To: A Roadmap for Radicals
How can we build an effective popular movement to change society? That is the subject of this book, which has been widely praised. In my opinion, it has important and profoundly true things to say, but is politically unbalanced and mistaken in certain ways.

A Report on the Black Rose/Rosa Negra 4th National Convention
By Romina, Lisette and Ollie

On a Saturday afternoon in Rochester, NY, fifty members of the Black Rose Anarchist Federation gathered outside The Flying Squirrel Community Space to take a group photo. Members from 14 locals, as well as many at-large members, travelled from across the country to participate in their organization’s fourth convention. As the group walked back inside, one member was quoted saying that, “the convention so far was one of the best conversations we’ve had in the federation on strategy, the current moment and our next steps.”

Six years ago on September 17th, the Occupy moment began. Occupy was perhaps a high water mark for the North American anarchist space, although the anarchist idea and practice of occupation on different levels goes back much further. Occupy, assemblies, gatherings, meetings, etc provide anarchists with the face-to-face (f2f) social experiences and opportunity to learn a(n anarchist) culture and survive.

From Its (All) a Social Construct(?)!

The following is response to beyondsecularism’s question. Because the question is juicy but not that coherent, I thought to dedicate a blog post in order to address dilemmas within anarchism. The is question is posed under the comment section of Anarchists Advocate for a Collective Society Not a Power Vacuum, and it revolves around ethics, force and action. Here it goes.

Archipelago – Affinity, Informal Organization, and Insurrectional Projects – From Salto #2 – MP3Read PrintArchive TorrentYouTube

This zine explores the topic of affinity and informal organization. The author(s) argue that informal organizations based on affinity are the ideal ways of acting as anarchist because they overcome the limits of qualitative projects and organizations that exist as ends in and of themselves. Incorporated into the text are criticisms of formal organizations and discussions of what exactly affinity means.
