"We really want to see more people stepping in to organized anti-repression and prisoner support efforts. The cycles of movement and conflict have been speeding up and intensifying.

But this organizing is central to building long-term resilience into our struggles." itsgoingdown.org/were-out-here

"This is the real . The City in the Forest. And it is in danger. Of displacement, demolition, defeat. Everyone knows it. And we are fighting back.

And it is precisely this fight-back, this generalized determination to live a free and joyous life, that has produced so much resistance to the destruction of the South River Forest, the construction of Cop City and the Blackhall soundstage monstrosity. If you depended on the news, you would never know any of this."

"Anarchists within the feminist movement rejected voting and legal reforms in favor of radical grass-roots activism. Instead of the slogan “we’re pro-choice and we vote,” anarchists often marched behind a banner reading “we’re pro-choice and we riot!” washingtonpost.com/outlook/202
