The following two articles / PDF files are translations from the Danish anarchist newspaper Orkanen, January and March 2018. The critical texts are about informers, snitching, prisoner solidarity, repression’s effects, etc and are not just of interest for the scene/movement in Copenhagen/Denmark, but also for our anarchist/ABC/Anti-repression/Anti-prison-network.

As we’ll be publishing a collection of the critiques of “eco-extremism” from the nihilist-anarchist and anarchist-insurrectionalist tendency that were previously published on our site and elsewhere, we republish this PDF which looks slightly deeper into the Little Black Cart published journal, Atassa, and the Church of ITS Mexico, as largely our tendency has not seen fit to waste too many words on anything other than dismissals of this crap. Although we really disagree with the author’s overarching positions on many topics “Letter to the Anarchist Galaxy”, “Nihilist Recuperation” etc, that they use to give frame to their argument and find the tedious referencing and ‘social-insurrectionary’ style to be repetitive, fanciful, lengthy and overcooked (which is a typical feature of these kind of texts from that sector of the solar-system), nevertheless we think it’s an interesting addition to the salt of critique advancing the dialogue against green authoritarianism and wee dafties. Where arrogance and stupidity meet, nothing good comes!!
[USA] Of Indiscriminate Attacks and Wild Reactions
An Anti-Civ Anarchist Engages with ITS and Atassa, their Defenders and Their false Critics
The following is the introduction to a short book critiquing so-called “eco-extremism” in Mexico, and those in support of it in the United States. To read two essays on the subject already published on IGD, go here.

Author’s Note to IGD readers: This essay was written a year ago, in haste. It was prompted by the escalation in 2017 of conflict between insurrectionary anarchists and proponents of a new school of purportedly anti-civilization ideology known as “Eco-Extremism”, both in Mexico and the US. This conflict was signaled in part by the appearance of a US journal called Atassa: readings in Eco-Extremism, which presented ideas and writings associated with the armed struggle group known as Individualidades tendiendo a lo Salvaje, abbreviated ITS but most often translated from the Spanish as Individualists Tending toward the Wild (a group with a history stretching back to around 2011).
Some of you will remember the publication around the same time of two brief pieces of news/criticism on It’s Going Down by Scott Campbell (“There’s Nothing Anarchist About Eco-Fascism,” and “Not Our Comrades: ITS Attacks on Anarchists”) which also dealt with this conflict. These pieces appeared in the wake of ITS claims of responsibility for various apparently misogynistic or random murders, physical attacks on anarchists, and a ramping up of reactionary rhetoric on the part of the mysterious and media-savvy group. Fast forward to recent weeks, and a slew of the online Egoist milieu has issued its own analyses and condemnations of ITS, Atassa, and Eco-Extremist ideas in what appears to be an ongoing fallout.

A zine creating and distributing project focused on anarchy, insurrection and anti-civilization.
A is for Nihilism – This zine does not represent any “official” definition, nor a new program or political ideology. Instead it merely presents some common anarchist-nihilist ideas which encourage an anti-political critique of all social control and order, in favor of individual empowerment, anarchy and insurrection.

*Santiago – Chile*
Para continuar con la idea final de la editorial pasada, queremos decir
que la recopilación de reivindicaciones de sabotajes, atentados, las
noticias formuladas etc. son con la intención de generar un archivo
online y material, para que las diversas ideas expresadas desde la
acción y las noticias lleguen a más compañerxs en la calle, como en
prisión -quienes no todxs tienen acceso a la contrainformación vía web-.
Estas recopilaciones son parte de una línea antiautoritaria, acciones
que sacamos con sus respectivas fuentes y otras anónimas que no
necesariamente pueden ser parte de la lucha anárquica pero de las cuales
vemos similitudes y son afines a esta iniciativa. (more…)

As activists we must know the dangers of the cyberspace, and learn how to protect our privacy. Avoiding the use of telecommunication tools is not an option. But either we own the technology we use or the technology owns us.
Here are some basic concepts and tips from yesterday’s workshop. We publish this info and ask you to help spread it because information wants to be free.

A nuestrxs queridxs lectores en cualquier parte del globo, y a lxs
presxs subversivxs de nuestro territorio. Entregamos para ustedes un
nuevo boletín recopilatorio, el cual esta vez corresponderá a
Empezamos esta recopilación adjuntando acciones que se desarrollaron en
el mes de agosto, como por ejemplo distintas manifestaciones
estudiantiles las cuales culminaron con fuertes enfrentamientos en
varios liceos de la ciudad y en donde la propaganda anárquica e
insurrecta se vio reflejada lejos de lxs convocantes y la
institucionalidad. Los cortes de calle con barricadas, las bombas
molotov contra la policía y los panfletos por los aires llamaban al caos
y a la solidaridad activa con lxs presxs. (more…)

3 years of lack of evidence – 3 years that fucked up our lives
(DOWNLOAD PDF FILE HERE)
The Fenix case uproar, consists of a lot of accusations of many crimes, ranging from the one of so-called “promotion of terrorism” to the one of preparation of terrorist attacks. These are the ones that were most discussed at the latest Municipal Court Hearing in Prague. During their verdict, the judge acquitted all the five defendants of the Fenix 1 case. Is it a victory? Why this decision isn’t final? Followed article is a translation of a month old overview over the court hearings and some analyses of our situation and experience, originally written in Czech language.
This long court hearing was about five anarchists, three of them accused of plotting a terrorist attack on a train carrying military paraphernalia. Two of them were accused of knowing about such plans and not having stopped the presumed authors. Two of these five people were also accused of preparing an attack with Molotov cocktails on police cars during the eviction of the Cibulka squat. Basically, according to the deployed police agents, there are in total five people and three different crimes involved. (And all this is just for Fenix 1, because some of these people are facing further accusations in the context of Fenix 2). (more…)

BANG UP AND SMASH: WOMEN’S PRISONS, PROBATION AND BAIL HOSTELS
Bang-up and Smash is an overview of women’s prisons in the UK, and a political analysis of their physical and ideological construction.
From the moment of arrest, to coming home, Bang-up and Smash uses first hand experiences to critically engage with the procedures, concepts and apparatus the state relies on, and the economics behind the expansion of the prison industrial complex.
Bang-up and Smash is a practical guide to women’s prisons in the UK, and a rallying call to attack. Solidarity is a weapon, and abolition is not enough…
