Join us for our February anarchist discussion! Following on the heels of our previous reading on communist egoism, we’ll be doing a long-ish reading from Stirner for his thoughts on the subject for a more individualist perspective.

We’ll be reading two sections from The Unique and Its Property: I Have Based My Affairs on Nothing and section 2.2.2, My Intercourse. Find the text here (theanarchistlibrary.org/librar)

You can also listen to the first essay here (youtube.com/watch?v=w90Jb1utOE). This reading is rather long so we suggest starting early!

Discussion will be held on Sunday, February 21st from 1-3 pm EST.

As usual, this one’ll be online on jitsi (meet.mayfirst.org/viscerapvd) in the room viscerapvd. Email us for the password at viscerapvd[at]gmail.com!

A little anarchist sentiment for you. 📸: @radicalgraffiti@instagram

Join us Monday Jan 25, 6:30pm on Jitsi (link will be shared the day of). We’ll be writing letters to former Kamau Sadiki!

We also encourage sending birthday cards to political prisoners with February birthdays: Veronza Bowers (the 4th) and Oso Blanco (the 26th).

On January 21, 1952, Swiss anarchist Marco Camenisch was born. In 1980 Camenisch was arrested for bombing multiple electric pylons and transformers connected to nuclear power plants. He spent the next decades escaping from prison, then getting convicted of shooting cops. At his 1980 trial, Camenisch delivered an amazing statement while sporting a red star on his forehead. You can read this statement in our pamphlet series Defiance+.

The series is a supplement to our book Defiance: Anarchist Statements before Judge and Jury. We have five additional statements together in pamphlet form, with silkscreened covers, edition of 15. Statements are by Georges Etiévant, Nikos Maziotis, Marco Camenisch, Haris Hatzimichelakis, and four defendants in the Operation Scripta Manent Trial.

The attack on the Norristown office was discovered around the same time as, on the other side of the country, other Democratic headquarters were being vandalized.

Scores of rioters in Portland, Oregon smashed windows and defaced the headquarters of the Oregon Democratic Party on Wednesday afternoon, in the wake of President Joe Biden’s inaugural address. Several people were arrested, and it did not seem the two events were related.

I’ve spent decades watching statist leftists whine about being criticized by anarchists. This is criticism rooted in more than a century of being imprisoned/shot/stabbed in the back by statist leftists. Now, in the last 48 hours I’ve watched countless statist leftists show themselves to be more than willing to use the cops/FBI against their enemies, despite ACABinProfileName, showing that anarchists have been right to criticize all along.

More than 120 federal prisons are on lockdown from today through inauguration day to prevent potential revolts fueled by the political climate. abc7ny.com/politics/federal-pr

If a cop visits you, don't keep it to yourself
If an agent visits you or you are questioned while being detained or arrested, don't keep it to yourself. Police want us to feel isolated and ashamed, by sharing information we can better prepare ourselves and our networks for repression and stop the spread of rumors.
If an agent is questioning you, at home, while under arrest, or while detaining you:
-Don't tell them anything beyond your name, date of birth, and address. If put under pressure you can say "I don't have anything to say, I want to speak to a lawyer" or "I will not be answering any questions without talking to a lawyer first."
-Ask to speak with a lawyer.
-Try to remember the questions they ask you.
-Ask for their card, so that you can share their name, position, and agency they work for.
After the encounter:
-Tell your friends and comrades.
-Contact an anti-repression organization or lawyer to better protect yourself.
-Make a public statement about what happened to inform others and squash any misinformation. Anti-repression organizations can help you write one. You don't need to sign your name, it's fine to be anonymous.
The police already know what moves they make, while trying to keep us in the dark. There's no point in keeping what they do a secret, when we spread information about their activities, it only makes us stronger and better equipped to make informed choices.

"Though volunteer-run and collectively owned look different in practice across various operations, in general, collectives embrace non-hierarchical structures—critically, there are no bosses—with the hope to empower members through 'worker self-management and a consensus decision-making process,' according to Craft [of @WoodenShoeBooks]." bookriot.com/what-is-a-radical

This afternoon, January 15 2021, an anti-fascist comrade was visited by two FBI agents at their home in Philadelphia.
The agents said they had questions about the recent events at the Capitol. The comrade refused to answer questions & immediately got in touch with legal & anti-repression support. We don't rely on the state to address fascist threats. The FBI has roots in repressing anarchist and Black liberation movements. We do not trust that they are only investigating the events at the Capitol. We challenge their attempts at repression with our collective refusal to speak to law enforcement.
If you are contacted by the FBI or other law enforcement, contact Up Against The Law or Philly Anti-Repression.

Why We Need Real Anarchy

"Direct action, militant tactics, and a critique of electoral politics will remain essential to movements against fascism and state violence. We must not let the far right gentrify revolt, nor let centrists confuse the issue."
