You're seeing it here first! On our latest podcast, we spoke with @PeterGelderloos about the last month of the Trump presidency and the coming to power of the neoliberal Center and thoughts on going forward. itsgoingdown.org/the-center-ta

When white supremacists bombed a federal building in Oklahoma in the 90s, Bill Clinton (a democrat) and the Congress sailed through the most sweeping assault on civil liberties made into law at the time. This was the anti-terror bill which transformed into the Patriot Act in 2001 after the 911 attacks. Once again white supremacists are the impetus for an anti terror law that's made to come after us .

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.

We are temporarily locked out of our twitter again. We are working on it but it might take time. Most likely a result of an anton ngo brigade for the J20 protest

We should all be paying attention to what the state is currently setting up in relation to going after the far right.

The tactics they are using all derive from the tactics sets that are employed to target insurgent groups, like Al Qaeda and ISIS.

These tactics rely on 4 main pillars, all of which are present in this context.

"In all neighbourhoods, by all means, our voices must be heard. No police solution to the pandemic should be accepted. Let’s resist the authoritarianism in place and to come, and let’s fight against curfew! We should not expect anything from a government led by a sinister paternalistic accountant blinded by power and only serving its political base." itsgoingdown.org/montreal-no-p

We watched this day as a liberal establishment shed spineless tears, a delusional grassroots fascist effort played coup games under the babysitter’s gaze of the police, and the media desperately tried to explain the situation, with cautious laughter: ‘It’s only cosplay, nothing to see here!’ itsgoingdown.org/neither-insur

Why We Need Real Anarchy

cwc.im/RealAnarchy

Politicians have come together across the aisle to decry the storming of the Capitol on January 6 as “lawless,” “anti-democratic,” and “extremist,” going so far as to misrepresent the result as “anarchy.” The problem with the invasion of the Capitol was not that it was unlawful, undemocratic, or extremist, per se, but that it was an effort to concentrate oppressive power in the hands of an autocrat—which is precisely the opposite of 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 permit centrists to confuse the issue.
