Statement by the Montréal Counter-info collective. They are back online!Continue reading Montréal Counter-info is Back
We have learned that Dutch police have seized the servers of the NoState tech collective, which hosts North Shore Counter-Info as well as Montreal Counter-Info and several other anarchist sites (like for instance 325 and Act For Freedom Now!, Enough 14). We know it is in the context of a criminal investigation but not much else.Continue reading Dutch police seized servers of NoState tech collective – North Shore Counter-Info, Montreal Counter-Info, 325 and Act For Freedom Now down
Another contribution from anarchists on the anarchist response to 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. Especially we don’t think Acorn and Winter Oak are good sources (anymore). In our opinion they drifted to the conspiracy corner. We also don’t think that the websites that are recommended in the piece that follows are the “most notable” to base ones analyses on. There are many opinions about the state lockdown and its narrative, as there is a growing number of opinions about other ways to deal with the corona virus and health care. We received many reactions on this article on Twitter, which is understandable as we consider the following piece as one that raises a lot of questions and even anger. We will keep the piece up, but are discussing another Enough statement about COVID 19 (the last one was months ago) and also ask people to send their own answer on this piece (and the other two (1, 2) pieces that we published before in this discussion). You can submit your contribution here.Continue reading You Can’t be Anti-State & Pro-Lock-down – A response to “Anarchy, Lock-downs, and Crypto-Eugenics”
Delhi-Dublin Anti-Colonial Solidarity Brigade declares: End the monarchy in Canada; end monarchies everywhere!
March 17, 2021, Montreal — The Delhi-Dublin Anti-Colonial Solidarity Brigade re-united in Montreal last night on an anti-colonial Saint-Patrick’s Day. They defied curfew to again vandalize the landmark bronze statue to Queen Victoria — unveiled in 1900 and located on Sherbrooke Street at McGill University — this time in red paint.Continue reading Montreal: Queen Victoria Statue Vandalized with Red Paint After Curfew on Saint-Patrick’s Day
So-called Canada. It was winter 2020 and in the aftermath of the most inspiring anti-colonial uprising of my lifetime, I read Rattachements (Re-attachments in English) and Inhabit. The trains had started up again across the country, and COVID-19 was starting to reorder our lives mere weeks after we had been doing our small part to help shut down Canada. In and around Tio’tia:ke (Montreal) where I live, there were many Indigenous-led initiatives, including solidarity rounddances that blocked traffic downtown, and of course the month-long blockade of the railway tracks that run through Kahnawá:ke. On and around the island, the engagement of settlers in #ShutDownCanada took a number of forms including clandestine sabotage of rail infrastructure, demos and vandalism of RCMP property, and multiple rail blockades, one of which lasted a few days.Continue reading So-called Canada: Another Word for Settle: A Response to Rattachements and Inhabit

So-called Canada. The situation changes quickly. Along with everyone else, I follow it avidly and share updates, watch our lives change from day to day, get bogged down in uncertainty. It can feel like there is only a single crisis whose facts are objective, allowing only one single path, one that involves separation, enclosure, obedience, control. The state and its appendages become the only ones legitimate to act, and the mainstream media narrative with the mass fear it produces swamps our ability for independent action.Continue reading Anarchist Reorientation in the Time of COVID
Montreal. QC. January 9. 2021. Today at 8 p.m., for the first time in our history, a province-wide curfew will be put in place. After ten months of a health crisis, our government has once again opted for a police-based solution. With alarms, sirens and flashing lights, the police will announce the time of its reign every night, at least for the next month. This strategy of intimidation and fear implemented won’t be sufficient to camouflage the amateurism and ineffectiveness of the caquiste method of pandemic management.Continue reading Montreal: No Police-Based Solution to the Health Crisis!
Montreal. QC. Though there was no public call for a noise demonstration this year in so-called Montreal, around 50 people gathered anyways. We carried on the 10+ year tradition in this region of ringing in the new year alongside our friends and family on the inside.Continue reading Report-back from New Year’s Eve noise demo in so-called Montreal 2020
