Justice for Gaza: why we cry out

It is easy to feel powerless in the antiwar movement, especially in
these “war on terror”, “support ‘our’ troops”, “democratic states must
have the right to defend themselves” days. We live in a country where
we have next to no power between elections; and during these charades
of democracy our collective pulse is taken several times a day to
determine the best course of manipulation. Our cries in the streets
against the bombing and strangling of Palestinians into submission
seem irrelevant in this context. In some ways they are. But only if we
are unrealistic about what they can accomplish, unwise about what
these tactics can do.

Ashanti Alston: Anarchist Panther

Ashanti Alston (b. 1954) came of age as the political action of the
‘60s was hitting its peak. He recalls struggling through Malcolm X’s
biography as a teen and feeling awestruck at the 1967 rebellions that
saw numerous American neighbourhoods temporarily taken over by the
people who lived there, including his home town of Plainfield, New
Jersey. “That was my entry,” recalls Alston. “I wanted to be one of
them black revolutionaries.”

Black Anarchism and Lorenzo Komboa Ervin

In order to remain relevant, anarchists should strive for our theory
to be a culmination of teachings from individuals and communities in
struggle and revolt against capitalism and domination. Black anarchism
is a term used to describe the contributions made by black
revolutionaries to anarchist thought and towards a movement that is
tailored to their own experience. One such revolutionary is Lorenzo
Komboa Ervin.

Canada Rescuing Afghanistan? A review of The Unexpected War: Canada in Kandahar

If you are a political junkie of some sort, you will likely be
fascinated by Janice Gross Stein and Eugene Lang’s multi-faceted
answer to the question of how the Canadian government came to help
invade and occupy Afghanistan. The role of Ballistic Missile Defense
and the Iraq war; the transitions from the Chretien to the Martin and
Harper governments; the bravado, patriotism and military marketing
skill of Canadian Chief of Defence Staff Rick Hillier; the imbalance
between civilian departments and the military; and the ever-present
consideration of remaining favoured members of the US imperial sphere
are all factors impressively explained and documented in The
Unexpected War: Canada in Kandahar (Toronto: Penguin Group, 2007).

Learning from the Greek Uprising

On December 6, 2008 it was not a dark and stormy night when the shot
rang out, but it soon became so as a police bullet killed 15 year old
Alexis Grigoropoulos. Not that such incidents are unusual. According
to a spokesman for the anarchosyndicalist Greek ESE “dozens of Greeks
have been killed by the police” since the end of the military
dictatorship in 1973. What was unique was the response, perhaps
indicative of the harder times that we have entered.
