Brains Kan: Norfolk’s anarchist rave revolution

From Freedom News UK

It was a sunny Sunday morning on 28 March 2004 when everything changed for the Norfolk-based anarchist free party crew Brains Kan.

DJ Manarchy, a former member of the crew, was dancing in front of a speaker stack with hundreds of other ravers in a warehouse on the Norwich Airport Industrial Estate when a friend came over and told him to take a look outside.

Anarchy Bang: Introducing Episode 43 – Anarchist Music

From Anarchy Bang

It used to be that the anarchist space was also a cultural space. Music was a big part of that space and mostly is no longer. Why is that? Or if not then why is the space that is about music seems to not exactly be about other aspects of the anarchist space. This week let's talk about anarchist music and about music that appeals to anarchists. Did anarchist music end at Tub Thumping? Or should we take heed at anarchist music lists like this one? https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6ddept8PXHsXGmtPgNCZU0

Can the police be set on fire?

"Fuck gender, take a molotov, burn the police." These few words written on the sign are enough in today's Czech Republic to drive you to court. This is what happened to the anarchist songwriter performing under the name Beltza Gorria. The first hearing in her case took place on 9 July in the building of the District Court in Karviná. This was preceded by annoying her family and without sending her a cops summon (apparently it's harder than sending e-mails, sms and calling), they launched a search for her. After long secrets, she eventually learned that she was accused of "inciting the crime of violence against an official" and the police expressed their efforts to combine her activism with the Phoenix 2 case, although it makes no sense at all.

The NYC Anarchist Book Fair returns to Judson Memorial in its 13th edition

From New York City Anarchist Book Fair

The NYC Anarchist Book Fair returns to Judson Memorial in its 13th edition - Sep 6th and 7th, 2019

As climate emergency looms, the specter of war and fascism haunts us. In the media and in the world around us, we watch the super wealthy ruling corporative elites persisting in maintaining the exploitative death-culture hierarchy of white, cis, patriarchal, Imperialist, and colonial capitalism. At the NYC Anarchist Book Fair we believe that can be changed, and it takes a village to invent the future.

Art and Anarchy - A Conversation with Lee Reed

From From Embers

Talking to Lee Reed, anarchist organizer and MC from Hamilton, ON and self-described mouthy jerk. We talk about how his political
music and focus have changed over time, artists and anarchists finding themselves in conflict over gentrification and figuring out what to do about it, Locke St repression and supporting Pride defenders, his recent Polaris nomination for the Steal City EP, and more. Plus I crammed this episode full of great tracks, old and new. Enjoy!
