Spain's Mine Workers Take on the State

Anti-Capitalist Movement

Spain's striking miners have defied the State, the police, and when necessary their own trade unions for weeks not as they fight back against "austerity," against Capital.  Yesterday, they began a march form northern Spain to Madrid to bring their anger to the Spain's capital.

Mapping Shared Imaginaries for Anti-capitalist Movements

Anti-Capitalist Movement

We started to realize that in order to be in solidarity with other folks on campus, we had to be in our own place on campus and understand what that was. To really start figuring out—how are we being influenced by the university, how are we being impacted, what is our struggle as graduate students—so that we can then bring that to the table and be in solidarity with folks in other struggles. That was a really big question, because we were so used to being taught that, as students, we were receiving a public good from the university, especially at a state university where tuition was relatively low, and that we were recipients of this gift and privileged folks. It was great to be working with grad students who were at a really different place around that—the money, jobs, and health care, etc.

On the G20/12

Anti-Capitalist Movement

This week's latest reunion in Mexico of the G20 country-governments—that is to say, the 'most advanced' States within the global capitalist system—predictably continued in the tradition of mindlessness and unreason for which the transnational oligarchy should by now be well-known. Meeting in the luxury-resort town of San José del Cabo in Baja California Sur—a locale which, like Cancún in the Yucatan, effectively functions as a beachside colony for the most privileged, whether Mexican or foreign—the parties to the G20 merely worked to attempt to stabilize their dominion over the peoples of the world and non-human nature.

Anti-Capitalist Convergence in Montreal: Disrupt the Grand Prix (June 6-10)

Anti-Capitalist Movement

The Anti-Capitalist Convergence of Montreal (CLAC) is calling for an anti-capitalist/anti-authoritarian presence in Montreal to disrupt the Grand Prix “jet-set”, and to support Quebec's ongoing student strike, which has become a larger "social strike." The Convergence is also in defiance of Quebec’s new special law against protesters and the student strike.

20 thesis on the subversion of the metropolis

Anti-Capitalist Movement

We define the metropolis as the compact group of territories and heterogeneous devices crossed in every point by a disjunctive synthesis; there is not any point of the metropolis, in fact, where command and resistance, dominion and sabotage are not present at the same time. An antagonistic process between two parts, whose relation consists in enmity, totally innervates the metropolis. On one side, it consists, true to it's etymology, in the exercising of a command that is irradiated on all the other territories – so everywhere is of the metropolis.1 It is the space in which and from which the intensity and the concentration of devices of oppression, exploitation and dominion express themselves in their maximum degree and extension. In the metropolis, the city and the country, modernity and second natures collapse and end. In the metropolis where industry, communication and spectacle make a productive whole, the government's required job consists in connecting and controlling the social cooperation which is at the base to then be able to extract surplus value using biopolitical instruments.

Raoul Vaneigem: Beyond the Impossible

Anti-Capitalist Movement

The impossible is a closed universe. Nevertheless, we possess the key to it and, as we’ve suspected for millennia, its door opens on a field of infinite possibilities. More than ever, this field belongs to us, to explore and cultivate. The key is neither magic nor symbolic. The ancient Greeks called it “poetry,” from the verb poiein, to construct, to fashion, to create.

The Colonization of OccupyOakland

Anti-Capitalist Movement

American anarchists haven't experienced this much positive public attention since the euphoria and aftermath of N30 in Seattle. We also haven't been this embattled since then; once again it's open season on anarchists of all stripes, and from all directions, including attacks coming from other oppositional figures. These are among the more insidious obstacles to a world without cops ordering us around, bosses exploiting our labor, and bureaucrats managing our struggles.
