After a long hiatus, subMedia’s foul-mouthed news anchor, the Stimulator, is finally back with his brand new show…. The Fuckin News!

In this pilot episode of TFN, Stim interviews far-right youtube troll, El Chico Lobo, and covers the alt-right’s pitiful attempt to hold a picnic in Chicano Park. Plus some good ol’ fashioned riot porn from Italy.

From It's Going Down

Starting November, 2017, Russian FSB (the successor to the KGB) initiated a violent crackdown on anti-fascist and anarchist activists. Starting in Penza, the repression has spread to St. Petersburg, Moscow, and most recently Crimea. Activists are accused of participation in non-existent “terrorist cells” for activities as innocuous as hiking in the woods and practicing woodland survival skills and playing with airlsoft guns, plastic toys purchasable from any toy store.

Trouble #9: Learning to Resist

Older generations never tire of reminding youth that the years they spend on college or university campus are formative moments in their lives, times that more often than not play an important role in shaping the trajectory of their future careers and helping to determine the types of adults that they will soon become. These are, after all, years where new life-long friendships are made, politics are formed, and ideas about one’s role in the world start to take hold. What these old-timers often don’t tell you is that if you play your cards right, they can also be the years when you participate in your first riot, flip over your first cop car, occupy your first faculty building, or topple your first government.

Trouble #8: Hack the System

Every day, more and more of our activities and communications take place online. We’ve become addicted to connectivity…. to constant access to an endless catalogue of information, entertainment and engagement, all available at the click of a button. The Internet has become deeply ingrained into all facets of our lives, to the point where it often seems like a neutral appendage to reality itself – a “digital commons” where billions of global citizens hold the keys to a vast, decentralized, library of human knowledge. But in reality, the Internet is far from neutral… and it’s certainly not a commons. The server farms and fiber optic cables that make up the Internet’s physical infrastructure are increasingly owned, operated and controlled by a small handful of incredibly powerful corporations. Social Media platforms have become sites of mass indoctrination and anchors of social control. Liberal democratic societies are under attack from Russian trolls. We are at the dawn of a new era in history, in which states wage covert and perpetual cyber warfare against one another, with real world consequences that are hidden and unknown.

Movement Defense Against State & Corporate Surveillance

Ours is an age of historically unprecedented state and corporate surveillance. Our society’s growing addiction to social media, smart phones and other forms of digital communication has ushered in a more interconnected society, but one that is almost entirely dependent on the technological infrastructure of massive telecommunication, software and IT corporations. The rise of surveillance capitalism has also granted state intelligence networks like the NSA with an unfathomably intimate snapshot into our personal lives.

From Mask Magazine

Frank Lopez aka “The Stimulator” has been making explosive anarchist videos since the early 2000s. Together with his collective subMedia.TV, he recently launched the new documentary show Trouble.

“Greetings troublemakers, welcome to Trouble. My name is not important.”

Trouble is an apt name for subMedia’s new documentary show. If there’s one thing that defines the ethos of the North America-based video production collective, it’s trouble. Committed to fighting racism, capitalism, and the state, their fourth episode “No Justice… Just Us” was released last Sunday and covers ongoing organizing against state repression and prisons.

IGDCAST: Getting Into Trouble With Franklin Lopez of SubMedia

From It's Going Down

There’s no doubt that SubMedia.Tv has been a huge influence on the anarchist movement in North America and across the world, and many people were sad to see the long running show, It’s The End of the World As We Know It And I Feel Fine, finally bow out after many years. However, Frank and his team at SubMedia aren’t throwing in their digital towel just yet, and this month are releasing a brand new show entitled, Trouble. Each month after, the show will feature a documentary on a different struggle. This month, it will be the #NoDAPL fight at Standing Rock.

March 15 in Montreal: police attacked, kettle broken

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info

A couple hundred people gathered yesterday evening at Place Valois in Hochelaga for the 20th annual edition of the Demonstration Against Police Brutality, organized by the Collective Opposed to Police Brutality (COBP). It was the day after the largest snowstorm of the year in Montreal, and the mounds of snow lining the streets meant obstacles for both demonstrators and the cops. Refusing the protest framework demanding less brutal police, we carried with us the memory of March fifteenths past and their legacy of anti-police revolt. Also, rocks.

Why Resistance Is Coming from Below

America is in the throes of crisis. Polling as the least popular starting President in history, Donald Trump has taken the reins and intends to force his agenda on the world by brute force. Alongside him, outright white supremacists are coming out of the woodwork, convinced that their time has arrived. Millions who once counted on the Democratic Party are losing faith in the entire political system. Can anything be done to halt the rise of tyranny?
