November 30, 2016 - 6:53am
As each state came in on election maps, a sense of panic flew through many parts of the country. Hillary Clinton made up the mildly liberal side of the same capitalist coin of party politics, one that those of us with an anti-capitalist and anti-state analysis would not be scared into supporting. This did not mean, however, that Trump's shocking victory and the events that followed did not ignite a rage to defend our community against the rise of a fascist movement. ---- In Portland, hundreds of people descended into the streets on Tuesday, November 8th, heading into the early hours of the next day as the anger only swelled as we could finally see the results in three dimensions. Portland has always been a center of radical organizing, one where the police have been known to play on antagonisms as the pressure and anger are about to boil over. Nicknamed "Little Beirut" ...

(en) US, Black Rose Anarchist Federation: TO MY COMPAÑERXS ON THE LEFT - A REACTION TO THE DEATH OF FIDEL By Enrique Guerrero-López

November 30, 2016 - 6:53am
We have an unfortunate tendency to view countries through the prism of their rulers, often obscuring the varied contributions of those "from below." In Miami, people are dancing in the streets, celebrating Fidel's death, while many segments of the US Left are clearing their throat for a full-throttle, "Que viva Fidel!" ---- This two-tone caricature has crippled our ability to grapple with the beautiful, tragic, and challenging contradictions of Cuba's history and current condition, not to mention Fidel's own checkered legacy. While Fidel looms large in Cuba's history, Cuba is not Fidel and the Cuban Revolution cannot and should not be reduced to one man or one movement for that matter. ---- To my compañerxs on the Left, who rightfully denounce the lack of militancy in the US labor movement, should we celebrate a regime that systematically gutted independent labor ...

Like every year, this November 21, 2016 , we paid a visit at the tomb where lie the remains of the companion Ricardo Flores Magon[16.09.1873 - 11.21.1922], in order to honor his memory, his ideas , his struggle, his life, and remember their cowardly murder 94 years ago in Leavenworth prison in the United States. ---- Only through the vile murder, they managed to snatch the voice of Ricardo, who never wavered, even in the face of persecution, imprisonment, or the decline of his health with which blanched his prisoner, sick body. And even with its imposed and cowardly death sentence, they could not silence those anarchist ideas that Ricardo, along with their co-religionists, unfurled under the banner of "Viva Tierra y Libertad", with which they sowed the land and peasant hands and workers of this region will in the world. ...

Yesterday[19/11]at 16h, 250 people gathered at the Kerkplein to march in demonstration against the repression that anarchists and antifascists have been in The Hague and elsewhere over the past few years. Repression this constantly has prohibited acts, and mapped the activities of anarchists and antifascists to implement repressive measures. This demonstration was also suppressed with police violence by order of the mayor of The Hague, van Aartsen. ---- The demonstration was surrounded by riot police and was shot by police on all sides. Then the police ordered all withdraw their masks because "that was the combined". One thing is certain, there was no agreement on this, and it also was not on notice that police drafted listing conditions. Immediately it became clear that the riot police were only looking for a pretext to start mass arrests, which also happened. ...

(en) sosyalsavas: Freedom of Movement of Refugees is Being Restricted?

November 29, 2016 - 9:49am
In the days of discussions about freedom of movement of refugees, we thought maybe we should talk about some values that are enforced to the entire world by the western authorities. ---- Freedom of Movement: It's a type of freedom that is created by the oppressors that they can go, invest, and collect information everywhere they want. ---- If we think on a national level, an oppressor (for example a high ranked state official, a soldier or a very rich person) wants to enter every village, every land and every house without taking permission. This is freedom of movement for them. This person wants to enter these areas, wants to invest or build something but doesn't want to be shot, beaten up or expelled. If something like that happens, freedom of movement doesn't exist in that country for him/her. But if an unimportant person like villager or suburban enters state ...
