From The Black Rose Anarchist Federation

On the evening of May 12th, 2018 – the day before Mother’s Day – our friend and comrade Pablo accepted a bike courier gig that would offer extra money for working in inclement weather at night – app based food delivery service Caviar. In the darkness and rain of that night his tire became lodged in a storm drain leading to the fatal accident which took his life. Pablo was 34 years old. He was full of life and love. He influenced and deeply touched the lives of so many. His many close friends, comrades, family members and loved ones will forever miss him, but carry him with them as they were all deeply influenced by his beautiful heart, mind and life.

Hurrah for Anarchy: Mayday as Celebrated by the Anarchists

Strangers in a Tangled Wilderness

Mayday, to the anarchists, is a holiday of remembrance. Perhaps you’ve heard the communists and liberals say that it’s a celebration of the eight-hour workday. I suppose it’s that too. But for me, it’s a holiday to remember when the State put anarchism itself on trial. In 1886, the line was drawn and the US radicals lost their innocence; the illusion of “free speech” and free association was shattered. Let that illusion never re-form.
