Summary of international week of actions for Russian anarchist and anti-fascist prisoners

logo_3Between 1st and 10th of July, international days of solidarity for political prisoners of Putin’s police state took place in 22 cities of 10 different countries. Although state pressure is growing, new delirious “anti-terrorist” laws are passed instead of improving life of citizens, activists of Moscow Anarchist Black Cross, Autonomous Action and other anarchist and anti-fascist initiatives organized a wide international campaign to defend our comrades imprisoned in Putin’s gallows.

The Court that Rules the World

longform-original-2491-1472161992-3

Imagine a private, global super court that empowers corporations to bend countries to their will.

Say a nation tries to prosecute a corrupt CEO or ban dangerous pollution. Imagine that a company could turn to this super court and sue the whole country for daring to interfere with its profits, demanding hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars as retribution.

Imagine that this court is so powerful that nations often must heed its rulings as if they came from their own supreme courts, with no meaningful way to appeal. That it operates unconstrained by precedent or any significant public oversight, often keeping its proceedings and sometimes even its decisions secret. That the people who decide its cases are largely elite Western corporate attorneys who have a vested interest in expanding the court’s authority because they profit from it directly, arguing cases one day and then sitting in judgment another. That some of them half-jokingly refer to themselves as “The Club” or “The Mafia.” Continue reading

ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE HOUSING SQUAT FOR REFUGEES/MIGRANTS NOTARA 26
ABOUT THE ATTACK OF AUGUST 24th

On Wednesday August 24th at 3:45 a.m. the Housing Squat for Refugees and Migrants Notara 26 received an incendiary attack. The acting method of the arsonists we consider to be a clear murderous act, organised with the goal to cause – apart from the serious material damage – also loss of human lives. The timing of this cowardly act was chosen during August, when as the arsonists believed the reflexes of the solidarity movement would be sluggish. In vain though… Continue reading

b1Open letter to our comrades.

The Black Bloc Papers 2

bbp2The volume which you are holding is a compilation of communiques from people who stood with and were participants in Black Blocs (be they specifically referred to as “Anti-Capitalist Blocs,” “Red Blocs,” etc.). Each piece contains a different tone, and one hears, in these tones, differences in age, sex, and political maturity. The importance of these texts lies in exhibiting the range of types participating within the Black Bloc. The chapters, except for the first and the last, are dedicated to different protests throughout North America over the years. Reading about the Black Bloc by looking at what participants have had to say is the only way to gain a legitimate insight into this aspect of the movement, short of actively being there.

To Hell With Their Elections; Clinton and Trump have got nothing for you!

itsgoingdown

The Democrats and the Republicans are both the parties of the ruling class and the billionaires. They just have different strategies on how best to contain and oppress the working classes and poor people. The Democrats use the “smile in your face and stab you in the back” philosophy, talking about being concerned about “middle class families” and communities of color, while the Republicans don’t smile and just stab us in the back. Choose your poison.

What is different in the current election is the upsurge in struggle from Ferguson to Baltimore to Minneapolis to Milwaukee and beyond. Hundreds of thousands across the country have taken to the streets to resist the ongoing police attacks on communities of color and poor people. And the usual ruling class strategies are wearing thin.

The longest election campaign in the history of the universe is now within 90 days of actually taking a vote. Jesus. None of the candidates have anything to offer the working class and communities of color. Clinton and Trump and the minor party candidates all represent the ruling class, the billionaires and the status quo. None of the candidates represent the interests of the working class.

Whilst Trump is targeting Mexicans and Muslims, his new advisor and current governor of North Dakota has just given the green light to “shoot on sight” Indigenous tribes that are peacefully protesting against the Dakota pipeline.

Please share this with the world let them know how they are treating us… we are not terrorist! We are defending the land and the water! Protecting out future!

Latest news that isn’t out there yet is that last night hundreds of cops from various agencies came with lots of flatbed semis and took out all of the construction equipment. The workers left and in doing so disassembled the construction site. Now though homeland security has taken over, legally, and the situation and the level of threat has been bumped up. This means they consider this a terrorist action and have the authority to shot on sight. Continue reading
