The following piece by Brazilian anarchist Felipe Corrêa reviews contemporary discussions of power from an anarchist perspective and their contributions to a broader theory of power for utilization in building analysis and strategy. To avoid confusion the article title has been changed to refer to an “anarchist theory of power” but we have preserved the articles use of the phrase “libertarian theory of political power” – as outside the U.S. the term “libertarian” has always historically been associated with anarchism.Continue reading Towards An Anarchist Theory of Power

Fines and expenses
You may have already heard that a judge decreased the executor’s fee to “mere” 900 000 CZK (yes, nine hundred thousand, approx 36 000 EUR), which, thanks to your overwhelming solidarity, appears to have been mostly collected.

Xinachtli is a revolutionary Chicano anarchist political prisoner, jailhouse lawyer, and member of the Certain Days collective, who is held in the Texas prison system as a result of disarming a police officer who was threatening his life. He is currently in severe medical danger. As a 67-year-old man who takes several medications for hypertension and also has Hepatitis C, he has serious medical needs and is sensitive to the heat. Staff at the Polunsky Unit, where he is currently held, are refusing to give him access to a fan, or even to use his own funds to purchase one, even though Xinachtli warns that he is on the verge of heatstroke. In addition, he has not yet been given all his property, including legal papers, after a recent medical transfer from the Allred Unit. UPDATE July 24: As a follow-up on this, TDCJ have now issued a statement saying that Xinachtli has now been given access to a fan, so it looks like no further action is needed on this for now.Continue reading Urgent: Anarchist political prisoner Xinachtli in danger of heatstroke
