This is to announce the first Feral Awakening rewilding green anarchist Gathering from July 24th to 31st to be focused on rewilding, anti-civilization critiques (with of course in depth forums on green anarchy, anarcho-primitivism), and a place for folks to gather together in the wild who desire to see the end of civilization and wildness flourish in its place. We’re hoping to provide a space for people to make connections with each other and the earth, for those of us who realize that civilization is a destructive force upon all life and the planet itself and are looking to do what we can to see a world without it. We’d like to invite groups and individuals engaged in struggles against the destruction of the Earth (and indeed all interconnected forms of oppression) to join us and share your stories, lessons, skills, and whatever else you may have to offer.

Here comes the 6th Anarchist Bookfair, which will take place on the 24th, 25th and 26th of May 2013 in Lisbon at the Amigos do Minho (in Intendente), with the every year renovated goal of creating an autonomous space, open to all, for the dissemination and discussion of the anarchist ideas.
In this year’s program of the Bookfair, besides the usual stalls, two debates are scheduled. On one hand, we want to discuss the actuation and limitations of the media industry and its possible alternatives. On the other, we’ll debate the role of libraries as a privileged space for meeting, reflection, discussion and sharing.
It is intended that the Bookfair incentives the edition of books and other anarchist publications and its reading. We continue to believe that anarchy is the alternative to the violence of the state, the arrogance of the capital, the “progress” of the technique and the damages of subservient journalism.

April 5th to April 7th, 2013 – Program
ASK takes place in Zagreb every spring, as a local resource for anarchist and libertarian books and other publications. We also aim to open discussion on subjects that are important for the anarchist movement, or for our local community. In many different situations bookfairs have proven to be important events and meeting places on both local and international levels. (more…)

“Do not say that we are few; just say that we are determined” – by the R.O. CCF and Theofilos Mavropoulos (Greece)

Contribution of the nine imprisoned members of the R.O. CCF and anarchist prisoner Theofilos Mavropoulos to an international anarchist meeting convened under the insurrectional perspective (Zurich, 10–13 November 2012)
“Do not say that we are few.. Just say that we are determined..”
The question is not whether we are more or less poor, but whether we live in a way that does not contain us. We do not want to repeat things that have already been said.
We have banished from our minds the idea of central governance, and we do not believe in legends about the phantom of the proletariat. We are thus neither faced with an isolated State, which allegedly gives commands from the palaces of its Power, nor with a society that is waiting to be awakened in order to revolt. Today’s society is a pervasive social factory that produces attitudes, values, ethics and habits.
Today’s society works like a social death machine, which devours time, space, emotions and consciousnesses. The centre of the State and the heart of the system are dispersed in millions of small and large representations of Power in our everyday lives. They lie at the language we speak, the images of advertisements, the architecture of the cities, the virtual reality of technology, the people-centered civilization, the firearms of cops, the national symbols of fascists, the locks of private property, the standards we fall in love with, the walls of prisons.

A Prisoner Art Exhibition, collected and co-ordinated by Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) groups and allies, has now arrived at Colorama #2 (or C2), South London, as it begins a year-long tour visiting over a dozen venues across England, Wales and Ireland.
Opposite the old Colorama Cinema, C2 is fast becoming a hub of activity as residents transform the office block and ground level warehouse into an anarchist social centre, while hosting the start of the ABC art tour for approximately 10 days. It will then move onto Britain’s largest anarchist bookshop Freedom Press, in Whitechapel, before being displayed at the London Anarchist Bookfair in the University of London on October 27th.
New social space Colorama #2 hosts start of the prisoner art tour, Lancaster Street, Southwark
Featuring 32 pieces from seven current and past prisoners, including well-known artist Lucy Edkins and Phil Africa from the MOVE family, the exhibition shows the artistic talent of those behind bars, as well as highlighting the political cases of the prisoners themselves. (more…)

3rd Anarchist Series of Gatherings happened at Etniko bandido Infoshop is quite a success. Almost 20 people came to participate in this event from freelance artist to the volunteers of Food Not Bombs and some close friends. Even some foreign visitors who are in the Philippines for a holiday gave their time to witness this small but informative activity.
Some artist who made an 5”x7”inches artwork display their magnificent master pieces on the wall of the space for public viewing so the people will have a chance for a free look and appreciate art at its best.
A couple from Marinduque Indymedia Center gave a workshop and present a film/documentation about their travel in three different side of Asia such as Thailand, Indonesia and Japan as part of their ASIA INDY TEST Project. The film interview that their document in one of the Anti-Authoritarian Gathering in Medan,
Indonesia which they show to us was a bit inspiring. They share their experiences on this supposedly one week activity and made a lot of comments regarding the event. Also a film about their talk in one of the conference in Thailand was also good. After the film presentation a video/photography workshops takes place. The workshop did not go any further but still it was nice that somehow we learn so much despite of a short time workshop.
After all of this informative presentation and skill sharing activity, an awaiting party heads on till midnight.
