PDF: ‘Negation’ a new counter-info project from Scotland (UK)

08/01/2015 in Library

The first issue of Negation, a new periodical anarchist publication from Scotland is available now.

From the editorial:

This periodical bulletin exists to widen the current of a nihilist-anarchist critique in Scotland and whatever that may bring.

It is your sole responsibility to steal back your life. However, if you are content with shitty food, mundane shopping, police surveillance, civility, boredom and a slow death from cancer and pollution, then perhaps this publication is not for you…

We do not care for “recruits” nor do we seek to seem reasonable in the eyes of anyone.

– Until next time (A)

The first issue has articles covering:

Countering the Congress of the Institute of Animal technology 17-20th March 2015 (Scotland).

Some thoughts on resisting fracking in Scotland.

Glasgow Anarchist Black Cross

Against the Grain.

Destroy Anthropocentrism

FOR AN END TO ALL CIVIL NORMALITY

PDF: A Few Notes on Anarchist Revolutionary Solidarity and the Struggle Against Prison

12/10/2014 in Library

PDF: A Few Notes on Anarchist Revolutionary Solidarity and the Struggle Against Prison– Anonymous (2012)

I’m writing these lines concerning the subjects of Solidarity and prison. I hope this can clarify the anarchist perspective as concerns revolutionary solidarity and the difference between solidarity and support, which is anyway necessary. These opinions of mine are open to discussion.

When we talk about solidarity, as insurrectionist anarchists we refer explicitly to actions, which besides giving solidarity to our comrades, attack the interests of the State/Capital and break some values of the system such as compassion and duty. These values lead to analysis and practices that have little to do with solidarity with imprisoned comrades. Solidarity actions, on the contrary, are part of the struggle.

This revolutionary solidarity on which we pose our emphasis is the action claiming the war that our imprisoned comrades are waging on the prison system, and it is aimed to destabilizing the interests of the State/Capital, the main responsible for the existence of prisons.

Collection of John Bowden’s writings on the prison regime published (UK)

09/10/2014 in Library

ABC Hurricane are pleased to publish a compilation of some of the writings of John Bowden. They provide a rare insight and history of the prison regime and bring to light cases and stories that normally never see the light of day, but are unfortunately all too common behind prison walls.

Posing no threat to anyone inside or outside prison (according to the Parole Board),the Prison Service is keeping John behind bars due to his continuing work exposing the abuses of the prison system – not just to himself but throughout HMP wings and especially in the darkest, hushed up corners of UK gaols. He has never backed down in the face of all that the regime can throw.

This publication comes at a time when he is calling again for as much pressure to be imposed on the prison authorities in the fight for his release – please spread these texts far and wide. Please get in touch by  email if you would like printed copies.

07/10/2014 in Library

A new pamphlet concerning the Phoenix Project has been released by the comrades of the Circle of Individualist Anarchists which includes transcriptions of the four events held nationwide in solidarity with the persecuted comrades for the actions of the Project which took place recently in Greece.

This is the first of a series of pamphlets regarding the ‘New Anarchy’ which will be released over the coming months which will ‘aim to disseminate our imprisoned comrades speech to as many anarchist comrades in Greece and the rest of the world as possible. This material is available to everyone for translation in any language, a procedure in which we will contribute ourselves, in collaboration with any comrade who wishes for it, in the context of partnership with individuals and groups/collectives with which we are politically associated.’

The pamphlet is currently only available in Greek, although a translation  into English is currently in progress and will be available shortly.

Os Cangaceiros- A Crime Called Freedom

06/10/2014 in Library

PDF: Os Cangaceiros: A Crime Called Freedom– by Wolfi Landstreicher (2006)

“At the dawn of Industrialism, factories were modeled after prisons. In its twilight, prisons are now modeled after factories.”

We speak a lot about the violence on the outskirts of the cities. However, there is no need to think that this is the only place that anything is going on. It’s just that many people who share our conditions live there, as we do ourselves at times. We speak of nothing but violence. It is our element, and we could even say, our daily destiny. Violence is first of all the conditions that are imposed on us. Then there is the violence of the police who defend these conditions. And, unfortunately more rarely, there is the violence that we throw back in their faces.

We don’t know all of our enemies, but we know what they defend. Our allies are not all obliged to be our accomplices, but at times it happens that some of them are. We do not have relations with all of our allies. The unemployed who fight against poverty are our allies, as are the workers who rebel against work and escape the control of the unions. We don’t think that we possess a universal truth, but we intend to communicate what we think. Universal truths are the ones that are communicated, not the ones that are possessed. We tell those who ask if we are assemblyists or councilists that we are interested in knowing how people establish and organize dialogue.

We are not “terrorists” because we support underground activity: it was once said that the old mole digs. In our times, people who affirm revolutionary demands pass for dreamers. But the human being is made of the same material that his dreams are made from.

We are revolutionaries. “Os Cangaceiros” means “Everything is possible”, “We are at war”, “Nothing is true, everything is permitted”. There are many of us relative to the reigning atomization, and we have allies everywhere. Read the rest of this entry →

Dark Nights #41 : ‘Against all States – Against all Gods’ – Sept 2014

17/09/2014 in Library

24 pages B&W : Dark Nights #41

International anti-prisons insurrectional newsletter Dark Nights is back after a summer break. Front page news is the communique by ‘FAI “Sacco & Vanzetti” Circle of Propaganda by Life & by Deed’ for the incendiary attack prior to the NATO summit in Wales against BAE Systems Arms Development Centre. News of this new anarchist urban guerrilla attack taking place has been suppressed by the regime, as they are frightened of the spread of the anti-system attacks and the damage to the image of the blood-soaked company. The fiery attack took place in Filton, Bristol, where many military-industrial-technological companies are situated, and proved that the direct action groups can strike the military-industrial complex in their closed sites.

Primary article by individualist nihilist-anarchist comrade Venona Q. is about authoritarian fundamentalism and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The brief article is about raw power and the total liberation war against all Gods and States. Against “progress”, the “West”, “democracy” and “civilisation”, the writer sounds a sharply critical and vengeful cry against the mullahs, militias, bureaucrats and fundamentalist murderers of the Middle East and the West alike. Reminding us of the continuous visions of the fight for human dignity against dominion by concepts, authorities and the power of death. Read the rest of this entry →
