A children's book covering the basics of Anarchy.
The ally industrial complex has been established by activists whose careers depend on the 'issues' they work to address. These nonprofit capitalists advance their careers off the struggles they ostensibly support. While the exploitation of solidarity and support is nothing new, the commodification and exploitation of allyship is a growing trend in the activism industry.
Don't wait around for anyone to proclaim you to be an accomplice, you certainly cannot proclaim it yourself. You just are or you are not. The lines of oppression are already drawn.
We Don’t Want a Mass Organisation. Why not? Because we’re not a mass, and we don’t want anyone to organise us.
The desire to change the world remains merely an abstract ideal or a political program unless it becomes the will to transform one’s own life. If joy and wonder, and a beautiful, indomitable existence are what we want, we need to try to achieve this here and now in rebellious defiance against all domination, eradicating the logic of submission from our lives, and our relationships and our revolutionary struggle - for the destruction of politics and the creation of life without measure.

Anarchism was the driving force behind Cuba's revolutionary and labor movements from their dawn until well into the 20th century. This book presents their inspiring story.
Democracy presumes a line between participants and outsiders, between legitimate and illegitimate. Only a fraction of the men could vote in ancient Athens; the Founding Fathers owned slaves. Citizenship still imposes a barrier between included and excluded, shutting over 10 million undocumented residents out of the decisions that shape their lives.

The most enduring and effective resistance against Canadaís colonial rule has been the traditional Longhouse Peoplesí refusal to participate in Canadian imposed governance sys- tems, and to actively participate in their own governance and laws of the Kanianeraíko:wa of the Iroquois Confederacy.
An open letter to GIs in Iraq.
As we have seen with historic colonialism, slavery, and apartheid, oppressors manage to vilify and demonize their victims in ordre to keep their regime in place. The smoke-screen created by the American and Israeli government is no different.
Despite the media and the respectable leaders of antiwar movements endlessly repeating the lie that US forces withdrew from the Vietnam War due to peaceful protests in the streets of American cities we are not fooled. The US withdrew from Vietnam because it’s military was on the verge of collapse due to widespread desertion, the killing of officers and small-scale mutinies.
Anarchist opposition to war is not a pacifist refusal of violence. Rather it is a refusal of militarism-of that system of social relationships founded on hierarchy, obedience, the dismantling of the individual, the quantified perception of the other that allows for indiscriminate killing and the description of those killed as a body count.

Warfare has significantly changed in the last thirty years. From 1945 until about 1975 most wars were part of the worldwide movement of decolonisation that saw the formation of dozens of new states in Africa and Asia. Since then most wars have been civil wars within the decolonised countries, sometimes continuing directly from the national liberation war as competing factions fought over the prize of the new state as in Angola. While these wars all have their own proximate causes rooted in particular histories certain similarities can be discerned. These essays examine those similarities
