Greece. We have reported so much on the always changing situation out here as it is of concern to anarchists. These reports reflect our priorities as an anarchist collective that waves a purely black flag, and also our own experiences or perspectives on what is happening around us. In the past we overwhelmed ourselves, and likely the reader as well, trying our best to discuss ‘everything’. However we want to use these reports to make more targeted reporting. We take responsibility for missing things, however our intention is to raise cross border solidarity, and inform others to both better understand the situation here, and relate it to their own. Information and links are provided at the end of this report, like all the others, where you can find constant updates and information on the situation as well.Continue reading March & April 2021: “Our Hatred for the Police Will Bring Us Together” [Greece]

Another contribution on the global COVID-19 pandemic. We don’t necessarily agree with everything that has been written in this text, but publish it as part of an ongoing discussion. This text was written by Maria Galindo from Bolivia, a perspective on the pandemic from the global south.
Maria Galindo shared this text with the media collective Lavaca (13/02/2021) and the magazine MU (both attached to the Universidad de Lavaca, argentina) , a text without prophetic ambitions, but which rather tries to think about the post-pandemic from a position of uncertainty. The result is a dictionary on the lexicon with which governments of the left and right discipline societies; a reflection on how to think politically and ideologically about vaccinations around the world, the colonial-patriarchal-extractivist order that turns neoliberalism into fascism, and how to interpret the speed of changes in the light of rebellion and creativity.Continue reading María Galindo: Capitalism is the pandemic

In an essay penned shortly before his death, David Graeber argued that post-pandemic, we can’t slip back into a reality where the way our society is organized — to serve every whim of a small handful of rich people while debasing and degrading the vast majority of us — is seen as sensible or reasonable.Continue reading David Graeber – After the Pandemic, We Can’t Go Back to Sleep
