The current war in Ukraine is difficult to grapple with and not only for those of us with friends and comrades who are over there, fighting or surviving, or who have already fled and now find themselves homeless, many of them for a second time, in the case of the many refugees who had taken shelter there over these last several years.Continue reading The Invasion Of Ukraine: Anarchist Interventions And Geopolitical Changes [Peter Gelderloos]

At the beginning of the pandemic the state claimed masks were futile, but this was due to shortage and the government’s refusal to regulate the free market to ease the pain of the pandemic. Once companies managed to catch up with demand, the narrative changed. Many people likely died unnecessarily as a result of this.Continue reading An Anarchist Rejection Of The Covid Culture War

Thessaloniki. Greece. Early in the morning of New Year’s Eve, police raided an anarchist community center (“steki”) on the ground floor of a science building in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. This had been a steki for 34 years, the longest-standing occupation on any Greek university campus. Anarchist and leftist occupations of university buildings is a longstanding tradition in Greece; the 1973 national uprising against the Junta government was launched from an occupied university.
The following is a translation of the steki’s call for solidarity, which prompted the march seen here.Continue reading The Eviction Of The Squatted “Biology Steki” Will Not Go Unanswered [Thessaloniki, Greece]

Rotterdam. Netherlands. A comrade in the Netherlands has sent a first-hand report from last night’s extraordinary anti-police riots in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, which included Dutch police firing their guns into the crowd.
Some out-of-touch “leftists” have tried to dismiss these riots because they coincided with and/or overtook a protest called by the right wing against new government restrictions. However, something like last night’s youth uprising against police cannot be so simply reduced— as our writer makes clear.Continue reading Reflections And Report On The Nov. 19 Riots In Rotterdam [Netherlands]
