From Autonomies

Anarchist social centres constitute fragile points of passage for anti-capitalist archipelagos of resistance. There fragility is born of the (ever increasing) restrictions of private property and State opposition. Yet they are often the only link to rebellious pasts and radical presents: they are the vehicles of radical thought and practices, the precious islands of different futures struggling against and creating beyond the violence of the present.

He roamed the streets of Santiago do Chile with full conviction of what he felt, against a terrorist police, against a society that mistreats and tortures human beings and other animals. His deep revolt against the grids of cages and prisons arose directly from his heart. Wild and free, he wandered his brief anarchist life like a comet, bright with love and rebellion. The comrade Javier Recabarren dies, ran over by a killing machine in the same street where he fought so many times (18 mars 2015). An indomitable wisdomof the acracy ran through his veins, in a young 11-years-old body!

Theme park and living laboratory: Lisbon and Porto’s territorial nightmares

For some years now the issue of gentrification has been at the core of different actions and struggles with the involvement of anarchists around Europe. These changes in neighbourhoods driven by capitalist profit-seeking or statist management are very visible since they are taking place in central areas of cities. Regularly, these are areas where anarchists and their projects or the ones from an alternative or radical movement had carved out a space outside and/or against the dominant logic. This is easily understandable because these areas were deemed not interesting enough or too difficult for the usual power brokers (although not sheltered from capitalist or authoritarian logic) and thus through the cracks some weeds popped up. But these areas are resuscitating a renewed interest.
