Liberals and others declare that the defeat of Donald Trump and of his coup-attempts demonstrate that “the system works,” that the U.S.A. has an effective “democracy.” I cannot see it that way.Continue reading Did the System Work? Aftermath of the 2020 Election
“The prison does not prevent anti-social acts from taking place. It increases their numbers. It does not improve those who enter its walls. However it is reformed it will always remain a place of restraint, an artificial environment, like a monastery, which will make the prisoner less and less fit for life in the community. It does not achieve its end. It degrades society. It must disappear”Prisons and Their Moral Influence on Prisoners, Peter Kropotkin, Kropotkin’s Revolutionary Pamphlets. Roger N. Baldwin, editor. Vanguard Press, Inc. 1927

“Our companions shall not feel alone. The people with whom they shared joys and sorrows, failures and victories, remain with them more than ever, resisting with a strong passion. Feeling more love and hate each day. The love and hate through which, together, we will change the world from its roots”.Juan C. Mechoso, Acción Directa Anarquista: Una Historia de FAU, 2002
Philippines. These universities are not alone. In fact, this struggle for our lives, for our freedom to dictate our destiny, is the struggle of every student, in every institution across the archipelago! All schools, colleges, and universities have their own versions of our very native concept of bayanihan, that entails a camaraderie and solidarity where no one will be left behind. It is in our values and in our history that we can learn what it takes to take our liberty now.Continue reading #Philippines: Students Lead the Militancy!

Racial oppression is rooted in capitalism. White people are not oppressed as white people, but do suffer from capitalism in other ways. White anti-racism cannot only be based on moral values but must also be related to their own oppressions caused by capitalism.Continue reading Why Racism?

The support and solidarity with innocent people can be done in different ways. It can be through launching complaints, expressing anger and frustration, protests, and demonstrations. The best kind of support and solidarity is boycotting all the goods that are made in Turkey and by Turkish companies wherever they are. Boycotting its media, universities, language colleges and stopping holiday bookings to Turkey. While Turkey has got so many interests in Iraqi Kurdistan the boycott is very effective. Turkey has hundreds of companies plus colleges, shops, factories there, and it is the main country for Kurdish holiday makers. In short Iraqi Kurdistan is one of the main market for the Turkish capitalists and the others. Boycotting Turkey and the Turkish goods can also put pressure on the Kurdistan Reginal Government, KRG, Iraq and the foreign companies to meet people’s demand.Continue reading Statement by Kurdish-speaking Libertarians: “We condemn the Turkish state attack and invasion of the Iraqi #Kurdistan”
