Today it has been 10 years since Alexandros Grigoropoulos was killed and since Greece rose up in the 2008 insurrection. We offer this zine now, so that we may better consider what the Greek revolt means to us today. This zine collects writings by A.G. Schwarz. The writings are among the best of the insurrectionary writings that came out in the early 2010s in the United States, with essays covering “The Logic of Not Demanding”, the Greek insurrection in 2008 and lessons that can be learned from it, and discussions of various attempts to try insurrectionary approaches in the United States. The essays are very thought provoking and offer a wealth of valuable insights, especially for those who have been inspired by the courage of anarchists in Greece. Order a hard copy of the zine here from Sprout Distro.
From It's Going Down
In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we spoke with someone about the ongoing repression of anarchists and antifascists in Russia and how it ties into larger waves of State clampdowns against dissent and social movements. We also talk about Russiagate, the band Pussy Riot, and in general how both the US and Russia is seen within the other’s respective counties.

France on verge of open revolt; "yellow vests" eruption is uprising not protest, spreading. "It is Time We Civilised the Sentinelese," by Brendon O'Neill. Suicide, ODs, nihilism: life expectancy declining for first time. Gene-spliced humans are among us. Fortnite addiction as connection, intimacy fall off. As eco-disaster moves along, violence among caged humans increases. Resistance news.
This week on The Final Straw Radio, we’re sharing an interview with two members of Rural Organizing And Resilience, or ROAR, an anti-racist and mutual aid organization that’s based in Madison County, North Carolina. Madison County is just north of Asheville and VERY Appalachian, with a small population that’s sparsely populated in remote hollers and small towns. For the hour, Matt & Janet talk about anti-racist organizing, community efforts, misconceptions about rural people and Appalachians in particular, radical history, harm reduction and material outreach efforts ongoing in Western North Carolina. You can find out more about their project and contact them via their website, https://ruralorganizing.wordpress.com
From North Shore
From Embers is a regular anarchist podcast produced in Kingston, Ontario. We produce a few episodes a month about actions and projects going on in so-called Canada that inspire us, or about topics that we think will be relevant to anarchists living north of the border. We are a proud member of the Channel Zero Anarchist Podcast Network.
