Norway, the fascinating land of glaciers and fjords, midnight sun and trolls. 🌍
.
And the land of electrical cars. In Norway, in 2018 nearly every third sold new car is driven electronically (source: CAM, Reuters, Statista) and thus worldwide leading. Norway had set itself the goal to increase this number significantly within the next decade, selling only electrical driven cars in 2025. This is supposed to decrease CO2 emissions arising from the transport sector drastically when charged with renewable energy. .
At the same time, the success of electrical cars is inseparably linked to excessive demands of raw materials such as lithium, cobalt, graphite. Most mineral deposits are located in developing countries. Mining is responsible for serious health risks among workers, deforestation, erosions. Thus, every sold electrical car has a reverse side, far away in another part of the world. Wrote my bachelor thesis on this topic some years ago, so I won't bring up some outdated numbers now. But same goes for every mobile phone you buy, each banana you eat, every coffee you... Show more...

Support Anarchist Bookfair #Malmö


WHY

Last year, Anarchist Bookfair Malmö gave us hope, strength, new ideas and a diversity of tactics to keep on struggling for another world. This year we want to make this happen again.
We are right now in the starting of the preparations for the Anarchist Bookfair Malmö 2019 and we want to fill it with book presentations, panel-debate, lectures, workshops, stalls, talks, meetings, food, music, etc.
Although we wish for the bottom of our hearts that we do not need to use the capitalist system that we are under, we need contributions to make this bookfair happen.
There is still some room for those who want to talk about any interesting theme or bring their material here! Just get in contact here!

Officials in Virginia say a 19-year-old woman died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the face while her hands were cuffed behind her back
Sarah Wilson was handcuffed during a traffic stop in Chesapeake, Virginia, on July 25, 2018, when she took a gun out of her boyfriend's car, "contorted" her body, and shot her self, Chesapeake Police Spokesman Leo Kosinski told WAVY in August 2018. On Friday, after an official investigation into the incident, Virginia's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed to WAVY that Wilson committed suicide and died from an "intra-oral gunshot wound." At the time of Wilson's death, Kosinski said that one officer involved in the traffic stop was wearing a body camera but it had been knocked offline. source here

If lipstick distresses you, you're the problem.

In response, over 5,000 Weibo users rallied around the woman, posting pictures of themselves in full goth make-up with the hashtag ‘#ASelfieForTheGuangzhouMetro.’ In response to this outcry, the Guangzhou subway has since apologized, and a staff member has been suspended.

Being tormented for how they look is something goths the world over are all too familiar with, the most notable and tragic case of this being the murder of Sophie Lancaster in 2007.

Anarchist prisoner, Soheil Arabi


\

Soheil Arabi’s, the Iranian anarchist, message from prison on the
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.\

“Humanity deserves the best

Speak of fighting violence against women! Of women’s struggle against
oppression, discrimination, and violence by society; Of violence in Evin
and Qarchak to the Varamin hunger strike; Of the abuse and threats
interrogators make against women; Of tears shed at meetings; Combating
violence against women is, without a doubt, one of the most important
demands of the liberation movement and we are all fighting against
gender discrimination.\
\
The discrimination that systems have taught us where women are men’s
property and tools to serve them. This was the thought that had me
ashamed of silence.

Silence against violence is betrayal. Rise up and shout: Shout, “my
mother does not deserve violence, my sister and I do not deserve
misogyny”.

Your attention please!

Today is the Dutch \#activist and \#anarchist Joke Kaviaar arrested and send to jail. She must stay in jail for 71 days.

Joke is also active on Mastodon (and therefore the Fediverse) under the alias @.

Her arrest was not a surprise, cause she lost earlier this month her last appeal. She must go to jail cause she first published alleged seditious texts, criticizing in her unique creative style the Dutch \#asylum policy. The second reason was an action in a municipal council chamber against the \#deportation of children and their families. So yes, she has to go to jail because of a now forbidden text and a non-violent action.

Sole witness to the murder of Honduran environmentalist Berta Cáceres

Who is Gustavo Castro?
via Global Justice Ecology Project

Gustavo Castro Soto is beloved by movements throughout Latin America, and not just for his political organizing prowess and strategic brilliance. His together-we-can-do-this attitude, easy gap-toothed grin, and quick humor draw people into what otherwise could be overwhelming leadership.

Gustavo – like his dear friend Berta Cáceres– is a fomenter of the collective imagination that says that we can re-envision and build just and humane political, economic, and social systems, that w... Show more...
 

Oliver Tambo: Have You Heard From Johannesburg




Trailer 2

Have You Heard From Johannesburg tells the untold story of Oliver Tambo—who lived a life on the principles of ethics, compassion, inclusion, social justice and equality—the man behind the release of Nelson Mandela and the end of apartheid in South Africa.

Described as one of the world’s greatest statesmen, his strategy to the international community to isolate and sanction the apartheid regime created the most globalized human rights struggle of the 20th century. Regarded as a terrorist in the West, he was hunted by the South African government’s assassins. He narrowly escaped death at their hands, and succeeded in leading the overthrow of apartheid and fathered the new constitution of a democratic South Africa.

My Experience Being Drugged and Raped by Members of a Megachurch in 1991


by RJ in 206 (Seattle).

I was apparently, obviously, raped in 1991 during an all-night church youth group outing which started at Overlake Christian Church (OCC) in Redmond, WA, one that I wasn’t told would be all-night. I say it was apparent and obvious because I was drugged unconscious, but suffered an injury from it, and the memories surrounding that injury make it obvious what happened.

It may be painful to read. But when people don’t want to hear or believe us hurts us victims too, so, read on, please - if you can handle it.

I thought I’d be going home afterwards. I was invited by a friend from school, one whose father had previously given me a porn tape. He made me promise not to tell my parents it was from him. At the time I didn’t understand what a red flag that was. I’ll call that friend Gaston - not his real name.

It began on a Friday night, at OCC with a huge event featuring performances and attended by at least hundreds of kids, in... Show more...

He made this decision on the basis of his principles: because he supports the #Palestinian call for academic #boycott of #Israel and doesn’t cross picket lines. In other words, he chose to act in... Show more...

Brazil – ‘Sentenced: the Incorrigibles!’


On the sentences against 23 comrades for alleged participation in the disorders in Rio de Janeiro in 2013-2014

As we oppose anything that violates freedom, today we are opposing the sentences against the 23 arrested following the protests in Río de Janeiro in 2013-2014.

‘The freedom of others extends mine infinitely.’ – M. Bakunin

23 people were sentenced in Río de Janeiro in ‘Operation Firewall’ for violence, criminal organization, damage, resistance, bodily harm and possession of explosive devices; sentences range from 5 to 13 years in prison and were issued by judge Flavio Itabaiana of the 27th Penal Tribunal in Rio de Janeiro.

They were all investigated by the Unit for the repression of cyber-crimes, which was the political police engaged in the World Cup and Olympic Games, the same that monitored protests in Porto Alegre and Sao Paulo.

Let’s collect money for an artificial hand for Maxime!

On May 22, 2018 an activist named Maxime has lost his hand in la ZAD while trying to throw a smoke grenade back to cops. The weapon exploded in his hand. His family and friends are now gathering money to buy a prosthesis that will allow him to rebuilt his life and pursue his studies. The more they get, the more the prosthesis will be of good quality, comfortable and performative. For your information, a prosthesis costs between 30 000 and 60 000 euros.

The A-Fund decided to chip in and send to Maxime 137,65 euros. Everyone can participate even if its just with a few euros using this link.

A-Fund supports fighters in la ZAD

You all might have heard about the recent developments in la ZAD in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, France. This is a place that was to be demolished under the plan of building a new airport there. 8 years local residents and squatters were fighting to finally win – the airport project was cancelled. However, this revealed new problems: now all the ‘illegal constructions’ (squats) need to be demolished and all the activists scared away to where they came from by the police. They had to endure an attack of 2500 cops, equipped with 4 tanks for the barricades and teargas salvos, and a very high amount (12000+) of different kinds of “non-lethal” grenades. One of la ZAD defenders lost a hand, over 350 people got injured, some very severe, about 7 people found themselves sentenced heavily and are currently in prison, some up to 2 years for having firecrackers in their pockets.

A-Fund supports Brian Valentino (Indonesia)

On May 1 this year, like in many other cities on this planet, anarchists took to the streets in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. They called the demonstration March Against Feudalism, and it resulted in arrests of 69 comrades.

There has since been a huge crackdown involving raids and more arrests based on flimsy evidence. At present there are 11 comrades still locked up in Yogyakarta Police Prison, they are isolated and not allowed any contact with comrades outside. One of these people is Brian Valentino (Ucil). Since the day of his arrest, May 1st until May 16th 2018, the comrade, who was beaten and tortured, has been denied of his rights for legal advocate or lawyer. Ever since he was arrested it’s already 15 days of interrogation without the company of a lawyer or advocate.The police or the legal aid haven’t gave us a clear reason about this, therefore we are not s...

Three requests supported by the A-Fund!

Over the last two weeks our decision-making crew has been discussing our first requests for support from the A-Fund. We were not able to reach a consensus, so last week was dedicated to a simple majority vote. And here we are, ready to report the results.

We’ve decided to send 50 euros to the Libera Community Space based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It is organized by a group of anarchist-minded people in a horizontal and egalitarian way. They promote issues such as gender & sexual liberation, economic equality, and other socio-ecological issues, be it in forms of writings, arts, or social movement. At the moment, they are looking for a bigger space and asked the Fund to donate to their fundraiser. Although A-Fund primarily helps activists and groups that suffer from repression, the decision-making crew voted to give a symbolic amount in solidarity with the efforts of our comrades fr...
