Decolonial feminists in Abya Yala: we are anti-racist, anti-capitalist and anti-sexist.

Why Decolonial Feminism: New Possibilities from Abya Yala (Latin America)*

It is no longer accurate to speak of one feminism, encapsulating the experiences of white women in the west and laboring women in the global south, for example.

Rather, today, we speak about feminisms, different branches fighting in the cause of women’s freedom, and created by women from the so-called ‟third world” – women of color, black women, and indigenous women.

These feminisms were brought into being when women from around the world began to critique the limitations of the sort of universal feminism that come from the white bourgeois women in the West to explain our own realities.

Pentagon covers up 95,613 complaints as $21 trillion stay missing

Nearly 100,000 Pentagon whistleblower complaints have been silenced – Lee Camp

I don’t know if I’d have the nerve to be a whistleblower. I’d like to think I would. We all like to think we would, just like we all like to think we could catch the game-winning touchdown or fold a fitted sheet without cursing.

But to blow the whistle on a huge organization with a lot of power, likely drawing that power to come crashing down on your head – that takes some serious spine-age.

Judi Bari: Anti-Capitalist/Anti-Authoritarian #ClimateJustice

A new website has been launched which challenges “to the core” the thinking of the industrial capitalist system. It presents the ideological alternative of an organic radicalism which it sources from a wide range of thinkers, past and present.

Originally published by The Acorn, Winter Oak    by

This philosophy, explains the orgrad site, is based on the idea of a living community, a social organism consisting of “horizontal relationships and exchanges between free human beings, rather than on sterile hierarchy”.

We at The Acorn very much identify with this tradition – hence the change in our masthead! Below we reproduce the article on Judi Bari, one of dozens of profiles of key orgrad inspirations on the site.

Judi Bari (1949-1997) was an American feminist and environmental activist, who organized Earth First! campaigns against logging in the ancient redwood forests of Northern California in the 1980s and ’90s. Continue reading “Judi Bari: Anti-Capitalist/Anti-Authoritarian #ClimateJustice”

”Ukraine has a long history of political anarchism, dating back to the Black Army of anarchist revolutionary Nestor Makhno in the 1920s.
Since the country’s 2014 Maidan revolution though, the historical and modern day rise of fascist groups is more widely known”.
…..

”Whilst the Russian government’s claims that the revolution was some kind of “Nazi Junta” are false, Ukraine does have a rising problem with militant fascism that cannot be ignored.

In a bid to combat the growing far-right, a group of anarchists calling themselves Rev Dia (Revolutionary Action) have begun to organise”.
