Freedom for #J20 Defendants: Call to Action

Call to support the J 20 defendants: “To vanquish the J20 prosecution is to help topple the AmericanState, by attacking them at a point where they are weak. Where we
exploit the State’s weakness, we show our strength.  And the strength of
all revolutionary struggle and every liberatory movement. (…) We are calling for an unrelenting, diffuse, solidarity campaign until our comrades are entirely released from their present repressive situation. For an up-tick of visibility to pervade our movements worldwide, and for concentrated actions in the days ahead of the May 14th trial, and then more one or two weeks ahead of each subsequent trial if the trials persist. “

#DisruptJ20 #Minneapolis: Communique From A Breakaway

On January 20th in downtown Minneapolis, a group broke away from the larger, passive demonstration called in protest Donald Trump’s inauguration. This breakaway action was not simply remarkable because it shot off fireworks or blocked the light-rail. Nor because dumpsters were moved into traffic or because paint was tossed at the juvie. These actions and others are welcome, and one can assume they produced great joy in those who carried them out. However, come morning, the paint will have been scrubbed off, traffic flowing as normal, and Donald Trump will begin his first full day as President of the United States.

Overview: #DisruptJ20 #J20 Actions Across The US Against The Trump Regime

Originally published by Its Going Down We extended the article with an action against a meeting of European fascists at J20 and J21.

What is happening in the United States is unprecedented. All aspects of the American ruling structure: the government, the police, the economy, political parties, and white supremacy are being called into question, physically attacked, and in many cases, being found to be illegitimate by a large majority of the population. Riots, blockades, and occupations of land have become commonplace as the rhythm of struggle remains constant. People are starting to find each other, and their own power. Across the US, popular assemblies spring up in cities to make decisions outside of State and police power, as trainings are held on everything from healthcare to self-defense, bringing in hundreds, as the far-Right responds with wave after wave of violence and attacks to try and keep the people subservient to the State. But a new power is rising.

Flower Bomb: Why #Nihilism? A Response to John Zerzans “Why Hope? (Critique of the Nihilist tendency in #Anarchism)”

For years, John Zerzan has inspired my understanding of green anarchy through many of his texts. I enjoy “Anarchy Radio” and the topics he covers, as well as his sense of humor!

I recently discovered this text online and acting on an impulse decided to write up a quick response to it! As with all my writing, I only speak for myself and my own personal experiences.

#Anarchy In #Portland: January #DisruptJ20 #J20

Portland has seen an explosion of anarchist and anarchist related events as of recent. In a city where the anarchist scene has been fractured and split after a wave of harsh repression almost 5 years ago, a resurgence in the wake of trump’s election was unexpected. The media since the “Thursday Riot,” as people have called it, has hounded anarchist. Continuing the narrative put into place by local police departments everywhere, anarchist have been branded as mere criminals and fanatics, entrenching themselves within the good and decent peaceful protesters. A narrative we have seen countless times after eruptions of tension have resulted in liberatory street actions. Oddly enough, the opposite effect has happened however. Interest in anarchism in Portland has surged.

Originally published by Anarchist News

1. Portland Anarchist General Assembly

The first event which is taking place on January 14th is the Anarchist General Assembly. A continuence of a tradition long past, the anarchist general assembly aims to bring anarchist in this town back together to meet, talk, and continue ever more waving the black flag with pride. The event has been sponsored as an event “for anarchist, by anarchist.” At this first assembly they will be talking about January 20th and what kind of presence anarchist should have, as well as the future of the general assembly and how to proceed. The event advertises that anyone is welcome, but those who preach authoritarian or capitalist ideologies and groups will be asked to leave and are asked to respect the space as an ANARCHIST general assembly.

January 14th

6pm- 9pm

Social Justice Action Center (400 SE 12th Avenue, Portland Oregon, 97214

2. Anarchist Contingent At Rise Up And Resist Fascism Rally And March

A call has been put forward for anarchist to gather and form a contingent/black bloc at the major march taking place on January 20th. The event calls for anarchist all over town to show up and make a presence with flags banners and angry faces.

January 20th, Friday

3:30pm

Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW 6th And yamhill

3. Anarchist Reading Group: Listen, Marxist!

Recently a new reading group has started, in a partnership between Portland Anarchist Black Cross and Anarres Infoshop And Community Center. This is the second event for this reading group, the last one attracted 30-40 people who all discussed the zine Revolutionary Solidarity: A Critical Reader For Accompolices. Discussion went fantastic for a reading group composed of individuals all over the spectrum of the left (and beyond). This second event will be discussing the essay “Listen marxist!” by Murry Bookchin.

January 25th, Wednesday

7pm-10pm

Anarres Infoshop (7101 N Lombard St. Portland Oregon, 97203

4. Portland Assembly

Lastly for the month we wrap things up with the Portland Assembly. In December, the assembly brought well over 300 people and over 20 different organizations who all participated in “incubation stations” that set the groundwork for community horizontal spokes councils. These ranged from Anti-racism to environmental impact, and every issue inbetween. This specific Portland Assembly meeting aims to bring in even more people and organizations, as well as having the very first spokes council meeting. The Portland assembly aims to bring together everyone resisting the establishment, to work together through the means of Libertarian municipalism. Portland Assembly is taking the political foundations forming within Rojava and attempting to apply them to a much more urban setting. While not explicitly anarchist, it is pretty much an anarchist event as it was a majority anarchist that made such happen. The Anarchist general assembly will also be an official spokes within the council, so they are encouraging all anarchist to come out and be apart of such.

If January is any indication, 2017 might just be the year for anarchy. With such a wide power vacuum open, anarchist must stop anyone from filling it and letting individuals choose their own liberation, and encouraging such. The liberals have failed, the progressives have failed. All that is left to win is either the fascist creep, or the black flag of anarchy. There have been prominent times in america before, so lets not dissapoint those who came before us!

For anarchy!

#DisruptJ20 #J20 #Antifa Reading List

​Originally published by Anti-Fascist News

The term “fascism” has been thrown around left circles for decades as a proxy for authoritarianism, racism, or both. This inability to properly define and understand how fascist movements erupt and grow has created a deficit in organizing, and as we head into a Trump presidential administration and the massive growth of the Alt Right and white nationalism organizers across the left need the tools to break down these movements and how they work.

There have been a lot of “reading lists” put out recently, so we thought we would compile one of our own that combines a whole number of threads that are important for understanding how fascism works. This includes detailed looks at the Alt Right, the more mainstream “Alt Lite,” the role of Neofolk and goth music, white nationalist organizing, the history of white nationalist violence, how the revival of scientific racism works, how anti-Semitism plays out, and all the other tentacles that make the intersectional beast of the new fascist movement.

This list of readings is far from complete, and this page is going to continue to be updated as we add new sections and flesh out the ones that are here. If you think there are some great ones that are missing, let us know, and also know that it is the writings, videos, and audio recordings below that make up a lot of the thinking that goes into this website. We have also angled the list below more in favor of newer articles as well as ones that are generally accessible(though there are a few academic ones dotted in there).
