This week on The Final Straw, we’re airing three international segments covering anarchist perspectives from the Rojava Revolution in Northern Syria, voices from the pirate radio, Radio Klaxon on the ZAD, a land occupation in western France, and a contribution by Enough is Enough editor Riot Turtle about refugee solidarity and struggle on the border of Croatia and Bosnia in the Balkans.
A group of us have been talking about the ways in which we’ve often felt alienated from our own movements due to the lack of post secondary and would like to hear from organizers with similar experiences. Rising from these chats, some of us have been talking about an idea for a compilation zine we’re calling ‘Class Dismissed’.
Ecology is one of the three pillars of the paradigm of Democratic Confederalism, the political-theoretical concept of the Kurdish Freedom Movement. Besides democracy and gender liberation, ecology has been mentioned explicitly as a dimension in this concept since 2005.

Supporting is participating to AntiRep!Net in showing solidarity and to maintain a wide variety of tools and act with other networks in resisting and fighting back different forms of repression and oppression, some of us do it from the front lines of la ZAD in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, fRance. We tend to do our actions and support without to much looking for social recognition. The idea and project exists since 2014. Today the french state wants to wipe la ZAD and some of its ideas, its potential and especially those engaged in more radical or emancipatory concepts of the map, out of existence… or in prison.

On May 10 about 40.000 people took the streets of Munich to protest against the new police law of the German state Bavaria. A few days later Bavarian state parliament voted in favour of the new law, which makes it possible to imprison people because the cops THINK they MIGHT commit a crime in the future. The first 10 people that were imprisoned without charges are refugees. Other German states are working on similar police laws but resistance is growing.
About 800 people blocked Zülpicher Platz in Cologne, Germany on Friday to protest against eviction threats against the autonomous center (AZ Köln).
A growing encampment has established itself at the Northwest Detention Center immigration prison in Tacoma. People have been camping out for several nights now, sharing food, making friends, and building capacity toward abolishing ICE and ending the violent horror of borders. There is free food, a badminton net, free literature, engaging conversation, and lots more. Every day at 9am and 9pm is a family-friendly noise demo for the prisoners inside, and there’s lots of room for other forms of solidarity and resistance as well.
