It’s summer! For all people especially western activists, who are planning to leave their countries to go somewhere else (Balkan or elsewhere) to do political or humanitarian work and volunteer during the holidays, we were collecting some advices which we think would be important to consider.
Riot police, with faces masked, pelt peaceful protesters with stones. A refugee in t-shirt and shorts slides down a loose scree slope and places his hands upon his head, only for the police to fall upon him and batter him with boots and batons. Another protester, already handcuffed, is kicked to the ground by a mob of police. In Moria prison camp and across Lesvos, the same border regime which condemns the alleged “barbarism” of refugees is lashing out with medieval brutality.

The number of dead or wounded in Afghanistan remains at record levels, but the European Union is deporting refugees to Afghanistan under the pretext that the country is “post-conflict”. The EU’s policy is immoral, cruel, and disingenuous.
On Tuesday the 18th of July 35 people were arrested in Moria Refugee Camp in Lesvos, Greece, after clashes with riot police using teargas and violence, which followed the peaceful protest refugees held in the morning.

Now more than ever, this is the time to question what our relationships would look like if we really lived our values.

In the COVID-19 climate, people are increasingly participating […]
taken from Ill Will Jacques Camatte was a central figure in the theoretical debates of the Italian communist left in the sixties and seventies, in the wake of the exhaustion of the revolutionary horizon.

The Most Savage Fruit of Alienation Despite the revolutionary promise of the nomadic war machines relation to the State, Deleuze and Guattari are quick to note that “…the present situation is highly discouraging.

A brief follow up to the previous allusion to Kant... In the Critique of Pure Reason, Kant defined the analytic as containing a non-additive predicate, while the synthetic as having an additive predicate. While I still need to work out the details, it's clear that Kant also implicates the digital and the analog with this famous distinction. […]

"The exact development of the concept of capital is necessary, since it is the fundamental concept of modern economics, just as capital itself, whose abstract counterpart (Gegenbild) is its concept, is the foundation of bourgeois society.

The COVID-19 pandemic has strained and even overwhelmed the public health, medical care and disaster response systems where governments and state agencies were ill-prepared to contain and suppress infectious outbreaks.
We are not accustomed to destruction looking, at first, like emptiness.

The source of danger is invisible; the most effective solution involves willing paralysis; we won’t know the consequences of today’s actions until two weeks have passed.
The global COVID-19 pandemic has affected everybody and has prompted many people to help each other, a phenomenon called mutual aid, which always happpens between humans during disasters and crisis. We are collecting and sharing information like we've done during previous disasters. Many of the tips here reflect our experience over the past 25 years […]
