So in addition to taking to the streets against the nazi-right organized as antifa, why not call for an embargo on the nazi-right? Denial of service to any and all that would support the nazi-right. Deny the out of town nazi-right access to housing by organizing among the hotel and service industry. Deny the nazi-right access to food and water by organizing among the food and grocery industry. Demand a nominal wage-increase as extortion and punishment to the local capitalists who have decided to host the nazi-right in their city. Discover precisely who among the local capitalists has the most obvious and closest ties to the nazi-right and punish them via strikes and other economic disruptions.

We’ve received the following report from participants in the occupation around the Portland facilities of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). While our collective has no official position on issues internal to the occupation, we consider it important to promote constructive conversations about power dynamics within our movements and the ways that they can impose limits on what we can accomplish together. For more material on this subject, consult our earlier report, “The ICE Age Is Over: Reflections from the ICE Blockades.” Shortly, for the sake of amplifying multiple perspectives, we will add one more text from Portland.

What kind of exchange do you anticipate working in an anarchist situation? Is barter or trade the only option consistent with your principles? Or do you see a committee-run economy with currency much as we have it now?
Do any anews readers believe in the power of crypto-currency to bring about a better situation, on the way to anarchy? Do local currencies have a place in your dreams? Do you have any experience with using one?
If you could make a change to how people exchange things here and now, what would that change be?

Tower Defence: Holding Space Against the Far-right

On Sunday, March 25th, various far-right groups from South-Western Ontario organized what they called a “Patriot Walk” up Locke St. in Hamilton. This was ostensibly a show of support for small businesses on the street who had their facades shattered during a mini-riot a couple of weeks earlier. The far-right hoped to capitalize on bourgeois outrage in Hamilton to put forward their ultra-nationalist form of anti-leftism, but their internal disfunction and overall shittiness, along with antifascists in the area being on point, led them to failure at every step of the way.

While social justice activists have gotten quite good at shaming those with subtly different views from their own, all their internet crusades combined will never match what the alt-right has shown that it can do–and is more than willing to do–to its chosen enemies.

Back in Black

On Friday, May 3, 1968, several hundred radical students stared down a contingent of fascists outside the Sorbonne, in Paris. The day before, the neo-fascist group Occident torched the offices of a leftist student organization, leaving behind their call sign, the Celtic Cross. In response, radical students called for a demonstration against “fascism and terror,” steeling themselves for a fight.
