This zine has compiled all the posts (with some exceptions) from Conflict MN during the year of 2016. In lieu of any overarching narrative, everything here is presented as it is on the site without commentary. Readers are invited to draw their own conclusions, if any, from the contents of this zine.
The year 2016 was a tumultuous year for everyone. For anarchists living in the Twin Cities, it was a year marked with a number of successes as well as bitter defeats.
The year 2015 closed after several weeks of protests over the police murder of Jamar Clark, a black man from north Minneapolis. While the initial days were marked with sharp antagonism culminating in a riot in response to the attempted eviction of a encampment that had been set up the night after the shooting. Afterwards, counter-insurgent forces doubled their efforts, only strengthened when a handful of white supremacists shot at the camp and injured five. Anarchists and other potential rebels were confronted by protest security and often bad-jacketed (as cops, white supremacists, or more simply agitators). The camp was finally evicted by police with little resistance. With this, Minneapolis joined a growing list of cities that have been hit with unrest in response to police shootings since the Ferguson riots of 2014.
It is hopefully non-controversial to state that an anarchist or autonomous street presence has been practically nonexistent in recent years. The end of 2015 saw a few modest attempts; a small rally for imprisoned anarchists in Spain early November, a fifty-strong march in solidarity with the northside protests later that month, and finally a New Year’s Eve noise demo that fetched nearly a dozen people.
Many obstacles appeared early on that continue to appear today. Notably, many people expressed hesitation to go to a demonstration that was not organized or endorsed by any identifiable organization. It remains difficult to reach out to various anarchist circles across the metropolitan area, even more so to convince them an action was worth going to over a party or dinner plans. Our understanding of the police’s response to different actions was only just beginning to come together.

Security culture Bad security culture can be tedious; often we only keep information from each other, not the cops. Actions and solidarity can be delayed from reasons of form rather than purpose; people can be excluded from meetings and social events because they lack social status while confident spycops are left to run things. Paranoia

Michael Heinrich’s introduction to Capital offhandedly deals with a point popular among leftist academics: “The difference between services and physical objects consists of a distinction of the material content; the question as to whether they are commodities pertains to their social form, and that depends upon whether objects and services are exchanged.
