O Novo Terrorismo Verde
Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Artigo original: Terrorist is the New Green, 18 de Março de 2017. Traduzido por Gabriel Serpa. Algumas greves promovidas pelo sindicato IWW (Industrial Workers of the World), combinadas com a revolução bolchevique na Rússia, foram suficientes para instaurar nos Estados Unidos uma paranoia sobre uma suposta ameaça comunista. Assim começou o chamado primeiro…
Maccartismo in Verde
Di Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Originale pubblicato il 18 marzo 2017 con il titolo Terrorist is the New Green. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Alcuni scioperi promossi dal sindacato IWW, uniti alla rivoluzione bolscevica in Russia, bastarono a mandare in fibrillazione gli Stati Uniti su una possibile minaccia comunista. Cominciò così il primo Terrore Rosso. Le abitazioni…
An Arch Why
When hammer falls, and nail is driven deep in vein, piercing those with hands to heaven, a raging flow of protest stirs, and the dam’s crack promises an empire’s dust. Tyrants fear, as the heart reclaims fallen blood its own, never again owed or again stolen, never to be the red in crime scene canvas,…
Riot Journalism
How to ethically cover social unrest is a complex debate, it is also an increasingly necessary one “A riot is the language of the unheard.” – Martin Luther King, 1966 Bogota, Colombia – Civil unrest is often the only available tool for people without voices. From the United States, to Berlin, to India, to Moscow,…
The Trump-Era “Free Speech” Shell Game
In Wisconsin, buzz has been building over a “Campus Free Speech Act” which creates harsh penalties for interrupting, protesting, or otherwise disrupting speakers invited onto colleges campuses. Meanwhile last week, 61-year-old Code Pink protester Desiree Fairooz was convicted and sentenced to a year in prison for laughing.
Portland Must Be Done with The Oregonian
Last Friday, The Oregonian published a staff editorial that responded to the police brutality unleashed on May Day protesters by labeling all anarchists as “punk fascists.” This editorial — published by the conservative newspaper that used to be a daily powerhouse in the Northwest — has been roundly denounced in many circles for its political ignorance.
Terrorist is the New Green
In the wake of several IWW-backed labor strikes in the US and the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the US was thrown into a frenzy over fears of the red menace. Thus began the first Red Scare. The homes of suspected anarchists, socialists, social democrats, communists, and other radical leftists were raided and at least 500…
Milo Is Not the Victim Here
Milo Yiannopoulos, who writes for the “alt right” (i.e. white supremacist or neo-fascist) website Breitbart.com, is a master at victimizing other people and then claiming victim status for himself when he’s hit back. For example, he actually took advantage of a position in the White House Press Corps to whine to former President Obama about…
On the Tactic of Burning Trash Cans
In the wake of the #DisruptJ20 protests in DC and around the world, there have been a lot of criticisms about tactics employed by various protesters. Fellow C4SS writer William Gillis previously tackled the issue of breaking windows and I have discussed the realities I saw in DC when it came to fighting back against…
Burn a flag for Donald Trump
It seems silly to continue harping on the incoming tidal wave of fascism, but if there’s one thing C4SS – and the anarchist tradition in general – is good at, it’s making sure you don’t forget that we’re in for a long god damn ride. Earlier today, Trump tweeted that anyone who burns the American…
Of Flags and Football
The football hooligans are at it again but this time instead of street riots and violence, they are raising hell with flags and fundraisers. With the recent news of Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand during the U.S. national anthem and Gabby Douglas not placing her hand over her heart during the anthem at the 2016…
Violence and Freedom in a Borderlands Trump Rally
The rally against Trump in Fountain Hills, Arizona, on the 19th of March, 2016, was met with great resistance and critique from both the Left and the Right largely using arguments about “freedom” and “violence.” As these are important and seemingly misunderstood themes, I’ve chosen to weave analyses of them through this report-back. Freedom is…
The Oath Keepers’ Colonial Mindset
Oath Keeper presence in Ferguson has been an issue boiling beneath the surface since the 2014 riots. Members began showing up when community hostility spilled over into the streets; Oath Keepers appointed themselves protectors of Ferguson property from looters. Reception was mixed, but some members of the community welcomed them and allowed them to patrol their storefronts.
The Weekly Abolitionist: Media Against The Prison State
State violence thrives in the dark. This is why the state secrets privilege is so abused, it’s why the Obama administration has viciously persecuted whistleblowers, and it’s why states benefit from a  media climate where their legitimacy is assumed and radical ideas aren’t heard. So today I want to highlight some people both inside and…
