Gustavo Rodríguez: The rebellions of misery

“All control systems are based on the punishment/award binomial. When punishments are disproportionate to rewards and when employers no longer have any rewards left, uprisings occur.”

#Chile: Road Block and banner drop [I. W. S. W. A. P.] in solidarity with anarchist #prisoners Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar

Prisons, cameras, police, snitches, drones, debts and mortgages, employment contracts have been some of its devices and mechanisms to reduce our lives to the sad imperative of producing and consuming. Even in this desolate landscape, surrounded by concrete, smog, buildings and honking, there are bodies that resist. From the resistances and uprisings, from the dissidents and desertions of the constituted orders, we have built and won friendships in all territories and at all times, from the most remote to those nearest. We inherit the conviction of those who have made their lives a permanent conflict, always disobedient to the logic of power and capital. The coherence of living and fighting is a flame that spreads and encourages us to continue.

#Chile: Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar once again arrested under the frame-up of bomb cases n ° 4, 5, 6 … (we already lost count)

Chile. Since the morning of this Friday, July 24, various raids began to be carried out in various communes of the Metropolitan Region, events that ended with Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar being detained (previously criminalized and acquitted) in what appears to be the new “Bombs Case”, which would laughably involve the most questionable character from the previous Piñera government, the former minister of the interior and creator of the failed frame-up of “Bombs Case” n °1, Rodrigo Hinzpeter.

Report back and reflections on the #Juneteenth anti-cop, anti-prison noise demo in #Philly

Philadelphia. PA. Even though there’s been active protests going on everyday here since May 30th, it feels like things for the most part are becoming more and more tame. There’s still a lot of momentum but with it is a strong fear it’ll be overtaken by the popular liberal agenda or suppressed by state repression. Nonetheless with a curiosity of what direction things will take, and with rather low expectations I showed up to the call for the ftp noise demo..

#Minneapolis, #MN: The battle for the 3rd precinct – A personal account

When I arrived in the afternoon at 3rd precinct the vibe was jovial as thousands of people chilled around a burning car campfire in the bombed out Target mini-mall. With the backdrop of a waterfall pouring out of the charred skeleton of a massive torched two-story housing development, people celebrated their success and how surreal the entire situation was. Packed vehicles with folks hanging out the windows weaved through the Target parking-lot yelling, “Fuck 12!” blaring Lil Boosie’s “Fuck the police” – a song that’s become default to Midwest riot culture.
