Madrid. Spain. The neighborhood associations of Carabanchel, Villaverde, Usera, Puente and Villa de Vallecas categorically rejected the proposal of selective confinement of their neighborhoods to stop the advance of Covid-19. About thirty of these groups, together with the FRAVM, made the “Manifesto for the Dignity of the South in the face of the second wave” public, a forceful writing that reviews a good part of the endemic problems and the abandonment of the Administration that these districts have suffered for decades and serves to confront the “stigmatization, exclusion and territorial discrimination”. We do not share everything in the following statement, even reject some parts (like the part about sharing a police station in Usera and Villaverde). Still we think its an important read about the growing resistance in Madrid against classist cofinement measures in the framework of COVID-19.Continue reading #COVID19 #Madrid: The neighborhood associations of #Villaverde, #Usera, #Vallecas and #Carabanchel rise up against the proposal of selective confinements

WHEN I first saw the videos, I thought they were a hoax. It didn’t register in my brain that an explosion of that magnitude could have happened in Beirut. It seemed like an end, like an apocalypse; everyone must be dead. Then, as I checked WhatsApp groups and called friends, I confirmed that everyone I was close to was, in fact, still alive. Even after an end it is never the end, and time keeps on going. That is what apocalyptic thinking fails to take into account. The end does not come in one fell swoop, no wiping the slate clean and starting over. There are only a series of mini-catastrophes that compile one onto the other and you have to build on top of the shit and rubble of the previous events, negotiating your way towards a hazy horizon. The best you can hope for is not a new beginning, but the opportunity to pivot, to ground yourself in the political movement in order to gain momentum and change direction. Somehow I always thought that that opportunity, the opportunity to dig our collective heels into the current moment and swivel away from the direction of the inferno, that that collective decision would be the result of a self-generated popular will. It wasn’t. It was the result of an event that forced us – forced us against our will – to adapt and respond to a vacuum whose existence we, as a Revolution, had previously announced, but that now had revealed itself to us all too clearly, whether we wanted it to or not.Continue reading The Revolution Post-Explosion – A letter from #Lebanon
A social center in a squat in Amsterdam in the 1980s. The smell of gasoline was in the air, which was not an everyday occurrence… but it was nothing unusual either. Some people may be surprised by this openness, with which many things took place in the 1980s, but the cop apparatus was not yet technically set up in the way it is today. I can remember that they once stood for months in a van with a big antenna in front of our squat. In winter, at minus 10 degrees, we brought them hot soup and told the cops sitting in it: “Listen, eat this now and then piss off. They actually left after that.Continue reading Revolutionary Anti-Racist Action (RARA): Militant Practice in the Netherlands
