Summary of the “Chaos Gathering”

"PROKURE THAT ANARCHY LIVES"

via Contra Info

The talks were given with sincerity and trust. Everyone came to participate or to listen without detracting from the nature of the activity. We would like to receive your feedback, criticisms, proposals! We are motivated and continue to think about how to discontinue the logics of inertia; how to spread affinity, chaos and anarchy. Nothing is over, everything continues!

June 11th Manifestations in UK

Write an anarchist prisoner today!

London, UK: Two Manifestations – In the Context of June 11 International Day of Solidarity with Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

We decided to mark June 11 by calling our little ‘manif sauvage’, with two targets: HMP Pentonville and the forthcoming Google London HQ. The point of this is twofold. Firstly, to start again a trajectory which has ebbed during lockdown – that of constant antagonism at the houses of confinement. In a sense, this seems to us to be an affirmation of the sense of the day of June 11th: to clarify that any repressive installations are a part of the global self-sustaining matrix of social control and exploitation.

Leaving the SPVM Behind to Attack a High-Tech Hub

A Promising Anti-Capitalist May Day

This May Day, Montreal’s annual anti-capitalist demonstration organized by the CLAC gathered in Jarry Park under the theme “No old normal, no new normal”. It was a sunny late afternoon, and the energy was high amid the banners and black flags as the demo began to snake through the residential streets of Villeray.

Our Hatred for the Police Will Bring Us Together

via CrimethInc.

It is the beginning of April and the mental impact of the lockdown has become even more surreal as the seasons change. The acts of resistance over the past few weeks have been both beautiful and terrifying. Meanwhile, the government continues to restrict our freedoms while opening Greece to tourists and business—in spite of infection rates averaging between 3000 and 4000 cases of COVID-19 a day, putting Greece third to last in the EU in terms of managing the crisis. In the following report, we describe the conclusion of the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas, the clashes of March 9, and more.

TACOMA AGAINST THE POLICE: REPORT BACK FROM 1/24

from Puget Sound Anarchists

The night of 1/23 a video went viral of Tacoma pigs breaking up a side show and ramming thru a crowd, directly running over one person. Two people ended up hospitalized from this event. I’m not interested in discourse on whether people were blocking the car, attacking it, or the police were ‘afraid for their lives’ or whatever. The pigs should always be afraid for their lives and if people chose to attack the pigs when they tried to break up their fun, all the more power to them.

Amsterdam: Report back the solidarity protest in solidarity with the persecuted anarchist Abtin Parsa

Amsterdam. Netherlands. On Tuesday the 8th of September at 14:00 we gathered outside the IND office on the Pieter Callandlaan 1 in Amsterdam. We were there with pamphlets, banners and protest signs and some black / red flags. At that moment we were there with more than 10 people. After several minutes two bastard cops arrive on bikes, 1 of them is the neighborhood cop from police station Postjesweg and he immediately makes it clear that the protest was not registered and that it is illegal and that everyone will get a 250 euro fine. We managed to gain some time by stating that we would discuss amongst ourselves what we would do. The cop left but stayed in the area. We used this moment to continue handing out pamphlets and by continuing the protest. It was discussed that the Bastard cop probably meant what he said and that problems would be very likely.

The Turnstile Revolution: #FTP3 in NYC

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.

Report: Manchester & Salford Anarchist Bookfair

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.

Report Back from Youth Led Anarchist Bloc at #ClimateStrike

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

01/20/2019

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.
