This book takes examples from around the world, picking through history and anthropology, showing that people have, in different ways and at different times, demonstrated mutual aid, self-organization, autonomy, horizontal decision making, and so forth–the principles that anarchy is founded on–regardless of whether they called themselves anarchists or not.

Too well documented to be strictly mythology, and too generalized to be strictly anthropology, this is an inspiring answer to the people who say that anarchists are utopian: a point-by-point introduction to how anarchy can and has actually worked.

Greece: Networks of Resistance Conference Part 1 – ZAD, Bure, Hambach Forest

Athens, Greece   from unicorn riot, with thanks.         – In the summer of 2017, folks in Athens organized the Networks of Resistance: 1st European Local Struggles Conference to “create an open source platform” to expand upon and share the experiences, knowledge, and ideas that have arisen from organically created resistance encampments currently building new alternatives outside of capitalism and nation-states.

The two-day conference was held in the self-organized Embros Theater, which is a squatted ex-factory in the Psiri District of Athens.

Navigating through the dynamics of building strong grassroots movements that impact radical change is a arduous task. The resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in the United States was monumental, but it didn’t stop the project nor the flow of oil. In Europe, resistance to development and fossil fuel extraction projects continues to grow in waves, similar to the USA, and like the resistance camps around Standing Rock, autonomous experiments of building an alternative society outside of capitalism and void of consumerism and hierarchy have existed for years now.

The Feminist Army Spreading Women’s revolution.. Leading the Fight against ISIS

It was in the autumn of 2014, only months after so-called Islamic State (ISIS) achieved massive territorial gains inside Syria and Iraq, committing genocidal and femicidal massacres as it did so, that a revolutionary silver lining arose from the little-known town of Kobane.

Having overrun Mosul, Tel Afar and Sinjar in Iraq, as well as a vast expanse of territory inside Syria, ISIS prepared to launch an attack on the north of Syria, known by Kurds as Rojava.

What it did not anticipate in Kobane was to encounter an enemy of a different kind – an organised, political community that was ready to defend itself courageously by all means necessary, and with a worldview that turns ISIS’s death ideology on its head.

Arîn Mîrkan, a young, revolutionary Kurdish woman, would become the symbol of Kobane’s victory.

Emergency: Bolivia permits Highway through TIPNIS, the Most Beautiful Jungle

Emergency in TIPNIS (Territorio Indígena y Parque Nacional Isiboro Sécure)

from Contra Info   first part translated by Earth First! Journal  

TIPNIS [Territorio Indígena y Parque Nacional Isiboro Secure] is a territory where the Pacha (Earth) is being devastated by people who see it as a space to plunder for their own enrichment;

It is not only the fauna that they attempt to destroy (thousands of species of animals and communities that have been thrived before the advance of Capital and ‘civilization’.

TIPNIS is located between the north of Cochabamba Dept. and the south of Beni. From the year 2000 to 2012, there were nine protest marches through the territory, demanding that those in Power respect their self-determination and not interfere in their behavior with the natural environment. This place has a lot of diversity as far as nature is concerned, and therefore is attractive to exploiters.

While Morales was enacting the new law, in the streets of Trinidad indigenous of the TIPNIS, environmental activists and settlers marched against Law 266 because they consider that the highway will only allow the expansion of the coca crops. According to the latest report of the  Oficina de las Naciones Unidas Contra la Droga y el Delito (UNODC),United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), these illegal sowings grew by 150 per cent from 2015 to 2016.

In October 2011, with the arrival of thousands of TIPNIS defenders, a law was approved which grants intangibility to the protected area. However, those in Power approved this past Tuesday [August] 8 a law that removes the intangibility of TIPNIS.

This was based on a false consultation, in which native communities resisted participation and those who did vote were the colonizers, bribed people and senior leaders who were later expelled by the real TIPNIS communities.

In a rare statement, the Saudi authorities said it had sentenced the activists to death based on a fair trial. 

Human-rights activists claim that some of the sentenced men were tortured and forced into making false confessions. This later led to them being convicted to death in a secretive counter-terrorism court.

The group included a teenager who was arrested at the airport before boarding a flight to visit a university in Michigan, and a youth who is half-deaf and nearly blind, activists said.
