I am not a member of the Asheville 11; this piece is not meant to represent their views. It feels strange to still be dwelling on this case; it’s been nearly three years since that May Day, and many more comrades have been arrested, faced serious charges, been supported and betrayed in the interim. For those of us who were close to the case, though, it’s hard to leave behind. There is some sort of catharsis missing: so many things we want to say, so many mistakes we wish we could correct. This is an attempt to find some kind of closure, and to share experience and information with those who could use it.
The early years of the anti-nuclear movement in the UK were marked by a series of annual Easter marches which came to a head 50 years ago when activists leaked the location of a secret, exclusive government shelter.

Greetings from the occupied Nuchu (Ute) territories of Turtle Island, colonially known as the "American Southwest"! We are very happy to announce that, for the 5th year running, the Wild Roots Feral Futures (WRFF) eco-defense, direct action, and rewilding encampment will take place in the forests of Southwest Colorado this coming June, 2013. WRFF is an informal, completely free and non-commercial, and loosely organized camp-out operating on (less than a) shoe-string budget, formed entirely off of donated, scavenged, or liberated supplies and sustained through 100% volunteer effort. Though we foster a collective communality and pool resources, we encourage total self-sufficiency (which we find to be the very source and foundation of true mutual sharing and abundance).
Graeber also thinks OWS should be celebrated precisely because the movement did not make concrete policy demands. As an anarchist, he believes in what he calls "prefigurative" politics: protests are not meant to extract concessions from the existing system, but to give people an idea of what the world would be like if there was no system and individuals were free to make their own choices.

He is held in Butyrka pre-trial detention centre.

He argues in an open letter addressed to the court, which states that he will not accept any decision in which he can not participate because he believes in a method of conflict management where all affected can participate. Support Activists on The Run He has presented a proposal for a reciprocal benefit society, a new collective project: RADIUS (Revolution, Action, disobedience, Integral) to protect the revolution and prevent any more comprehensive disobedient activist having to go to jail. Radius is to create an organizational structure to protect the physical integrity of persons activists committed to transforming society, Integral Revolution and freedom of expression, for all those being persecuted by repressive and judicial structures of the State and economic power and who want the option to disobedience and personal protection.
Spontaneity, largely horizontal organization, and a suspicion toward explicit political leadership have all been signature components of what's referred to as the Arab Spring. This has been the case since the outbreak of the Tunisian revolution – regardless of the regimes that have resulted from the power vacuums left in their wake.
