The Turnstile Revolution: #FTP3 in NYC

I.

The global wave of revolutionary uprisings kicked off last year has finally reached the shores of the USA. This Friday, the third #FTP protest took the streets and trains of New York City, the latest demonstration in an emerging movement fighting to win four demands: 1. Free fare on the NYC transit system, 2. No cops on the trains or in the stations, 3. The end of police harassment of street vendors and performers, and 4. Full accessibility for all.

A previous, unrelated reportback from another Anarchist

From Freedom News UK

One of the reasons I love Manchester is that it’s always had an attitude of looking out for each other that comes with being broke. It’s written into the life and breath of the city and something I’d always grown up with, a sort of “In the shit together solidarity“, as a mate once said as we watched the last few locals hanging out in the well of a ring of fading maisonettes on a dying estate.

From IGD

On Friday, the 21st of September, the climate strike happened. When I showed up for it around 9:30am, it was a supremely liberal affair, though a massive one – thousands of people gathered in and around a park across the street from city hall, despite the official start time not being 10:30am. Despite having come on the call-up of the PNW-YLF, I barely saw them in evidence.

Reportback from Yiddish Anarchism conference

As one of a pair of Philadelphia anarchists who traveled up to this event together last weekend, I admit that I did not know much about Yiddish anarchism as such before registering us both for this academic conference (subtitled "New Scholarship on a Forgotten Tradition"). I'm also not an academic (at least not officially). What I found there- especially as the day went on- didn't seem too very anarchist overall.
