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.

Local Activist on Iran protests: Bread. Jobs. Freedom.

Protest in Zanjan, December 30 2017

https://libcom.org/news/     We are publishing this dispatch direct from an activist in Iran, trying to make some sense of the current wave of protests. The situation is moving so quickly, and the protests sufficiently diffuse, that anyone claiming to know what will happen can be disregarded. The contribution we can make is to ask questions, to look at what has happened, is happening; and only from that speculate about what might happen in the future. We hope that more will contribute to this effort in the coming days and weeks.

We have lightly edited this piece for translation issues and to add footnotes.


From Armin Sadeghi, January 4th 2018.

Are we waging a revolution in Iran? Perhaps not. But if we perceive the essence of a revolution as “the abolition of fear”, then everyone has heard (and seen) the Iranian people shouting with no fear that “the emperor has no clothes”.It is hard to anticipate beyond this, since the conflicting social forces have not yet fully unfolded; and it is almost impossible to grasp a revolution as it’s being made. But, we can speculate on the situation, just as Marx wrote to Ruge1: “The internal difficulties seem to be almost greater than the external obstacles.

Kobane Rebuilds: A Trip Through the Nth Syrian Revolution..VIDEO

Democratic Federation of Northern Syria – Communities across northern Syria have begun to rebuild following the cessation of six years’ worth of conflict that transformed once-thriving areas into bombed-out ghost cities.

Kurds Rebuild Kobane as ISIL Loses Foothold in Syria from Unicorn Riot on Vimeo.

British YPG volunteer Oliver Hall was 24 when he recently passed away from clearing buildings booby-trapped by Islamic State fighters

Battles between hardened fighters from the Islamic State of the Levant (ISIL) continue around Deir-ez-Zor as units of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) watch over ISIL’s recently-captured former capital city of Raqqa. Meanwhile, residents are taking steps to re-inhabit the Kobane Canton and other areas recently gained from the Islamic State

Unicorn Riot contributors visited the recovering cities of Kobane and Manbij in northeastern Syria as well as the grim frontline of armed conflict in Deir-ez-Zor, and obtained photographs from Raqqa. The following video presents various elements of life in Syria, such as displaced residents fleeing ISIL control, scoping out an ISIL holdout, clearing a booby-trapped building in Deir-ez-Zor, as well as rebuilding and creating new apartment blocks in Kobane.Bombed-out buildings litter the landscape of Kobane – November 2017

With over half of the country’s population displaced during the last few years and a majority of the infrastructure destroyed, estimates place at least a $300 billion price tag on rebuilding Syria. The human death toll in the Syrian conflict in the past six years, as of early November, was estimated at exceeding 340,000.New Building in Kobani Continue reading Kobane Rebuilds: A Trip Through the Nth Syrian Revolution..VIDEO

Germany in Winter

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.”

Chess Champ Anna Defies Murdering Misogynist Saudi Dictators

Ukrainian world chess champion not playing in dictatorial Saudi Arabia

”The Saudi State only exists so the US can rule the Oil Market. Terrorism, extreme misogyny, slavery and mass murder are therefore acceptable with impunity”.

This video is called The Famous Chess Trap In Action By Anna Muzychuk.

from  The Independent             ‘I am ready to stand for my principles’: Double world chess champion says she won’t defend titles in Saudi Arabia because of kingdom’s inequality

The Ukrainian, 27, will not travel to Saudi Arabia, where she wouldn’t even be allowed to walk down the street unaccompanied

”It would be great if the Ukrainian government would have principles as well, and would follow the example of this chess player by stopping selling Ukrainian warplanes to the Saudi absolute monarchy for their bloody war on the civilian people of Yemen. However, as they are waging their own bloody war against their own compatriots, I am afraid they won’t do that unless they are under big pressure to stop”.
