PURA ACRACIA

from: PURA ACRACIA

What follows is a series of anti-political arguments against the police, politics y más.

Politics itself is the policing of freedom & unfreedom. Freedom, as we are taught in American schools, is not freedom itself.
It is a doctored variation sold to us. It helps maintain the assumption that the perpetuation of American politics is itself tied to perpetuation of freedom. (“Vote or don’t complain!”)

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Protest turns to riot against the new draconian law of banning protests

9 July 2020, Athens, Greece

Proposed by a self-proclaimed socialist Minister of Public Order (Michalis Chrisohoidis), taking part in a right wing government (News Democracy), assisted by the votes of the self-proclaimed socialist party (KINAL), the greek Parliament approved a junta-inspired bill on Thursday imposing new restrictions to quash and destroy the right to protest, a right integral to the so-called democracies, eg. under the provisions of the new law you will be arrested for joining a protest that hasn’t been authorized by the police. For dozens of years across the world, this has been called a Police State or a Dictatorship but then again the greek governing party’s name is “New Democracy”, which probably means the same, when someone feels the need to affix the word “New” to the political theory of “Democracy” that has been solidified for more than 2.500 years.

Rioting in France in Solidarity with Anti-Police Uprising in US

On Tuesday, June 2, a demonstration against police violence, which had been banned by the prefect of Paris, Didier Lallement, a few hours before, took place and brought together nearly 20,000 people before the High Court of the Porte de Clichy. Two hours after the start of this rally, echoing the current revolt movement in the United States, the noise of broken windows began to cover that of citizen slogans calling for justice. During wild demonstrations, the windows of a municipal police station, bank branches and supermarkets are smashed, construction machinery and electric scooters burnt down.

11 Arguments Against Protest Conspiracies

From The Tower

We’ve seen a lot of people on social media spreading rumours and sharing conspiracy theories about the uprising currently going on South of the border. These might be rumours about potential white supremacist attacks and interventions or conspiracies about police agents being responsible for violence carried out by protestors. This kind of online behaviour is harmful and undermines the movements you’re probably trying to support, and we thought we’d take a minute to break down why we should collectively push back against this trend.
