By: thecollective The following zines were published over the past month or so within the broad anarchist space. As always, we encourage folks to read, discuss, and engage with the ideas within.

Below & Beyond Trump: Power and Counter-Power in 2017
This is a “strategy and analysis document” published by the Black Rose Anarchist Federation. It provides an analysis of the political context for social anarchists in 2017 and the prospects for “pro-organizational revolutionary anarchists” to intervene in the current period. The documents focuses on (briefly) understanding ruling class power, social movements, and offers suggestions for a path forward. In response to their understanding of the contemporary period, they call for building social movements from below, offensive campaigns, and developing explicitly socialist practices and programs. It reads a lot like a political party platform with a lot of vague statements, sloganeering, and solutions.

Communiqué by the Autonome Antifa Freiburg from 10.11.2017 about the censoring of Indymedia linksunten by the Federal Ministry of the Interior
On 25 August 2017 Federal Minister of the Interior Thomas de Maizière, a member of the CDU, announced the ban of the open-posting platform Indymedia linksunten. Early in the morning, at 5:30, some 250 police raided four private houses and the Autonomous Center KTS in Freiburg. The raids were against five named persons.
Three of these people were handed the ban order from the Federal Ministry of the Interior by the police of the LKA Baden-Württemberg (State Criminal Police Office) who conducted the raid. The Federal Ministry had instructed the State Ministry of the Interior of Baden-Württemberg to enforce the ban. It in turn instructed the Government presidium Freiburg to do so. The Government presidium Freiburg then asked the LKA Baden-Württemberg for official assistance.
On 1 September the LKA confiscated additional IT infrastructure in Freiburg, giving the reason that the computers confiscated in the first raid were described as “strongly encrypted”. In the week following the raids the people concerned were followed round the clock by observation teams. Additionally the confiscation of post and email was ordered.
A week after the raids, the car of one of the concerned people was broken open and the interior panelling of the driver’s door was opened. Inside the KTS, safes were pulled out of walls during the raids and nearly all locks were broken. The autonomous center was devastated. The damage, including the confiscation of money and of technical equipment, amounts to around 80.000 Euro. Continue reading Germany in Winter “our Ideas are still Alive, our Resistance not Broken.”
