3rd Annual Rebel! Rebuild! Rewild! Action – June 1-5, 2016


Dear comrades, Earth-loving radicals, and curious strangers,

We are pleased to invite you all to the third annual Rebel! Rebuild! Rewild! Action Camp, which will be held on Anishnabe territory from June 1-5, just North of Ottawa. Our goal is simple – to bring people together in the spirit of revolutionary ecology, in the hopes that this will strengthen the radical movement in our bioregion.

You can call us environmentalists if you want, but our environmentalism isn’t about preserving this system.

P.I.C., Inc.


An excerpt from a letter from Sean:

Prisons are definitely operating wrong and are creating greater social problems than what they purport to “solve”. But the fact is, the justice and prison systems are not operating to address crime and criminality. Prisons serve racial, economic, and political motives, and the prisons do so quite well. So, any effort to reform the prisons must be based on the false premise that prisons “aren’t working,” when in fact, they are working perfectly. They are keeping minority populations from booming, they are working as a relief valve on the unemployment rate; they are keeping the rabble-rousers off the campuses and out of the factories and tilting the political spectrum to the right.

Black & Pink Newspaper (Prison Abolition Now!)


The Black and Pink Newspaper has been distributed free of charge to a rapidly growing list of LGBTQ prisoners around the country since 2010! In October 2015, it was sent to over 8,200 prisoners.  Each issue is full of submissions from our incarcerated members, along with relevant news, history, and opinions from the free world and a letter from Rev. Jason Lydon.  We recently included a calendar so that prisoners in solitary confinement can keep track of which day it is.  Periodically, the newspaper includes a form for prisoners to update their PenPal listing.  Each month, we ask prisoners to reply to a feedback question via mail to inform our organizing efforts.

Building Bridges with Nebraska Prison Rebels


Below is a list of Nebraska prison rebels who were willing to have their names and addresses released in hopes of building connection with those on the outside. This information is also available in poster format. This list represents just a few of the many rebellious prisoners who took a stand on Mother’s Day, 2015. Print and distribute the poster and, as always, build those links between outside and inside. Happy Mother’s Day!

I’m curious why I don’t see more outright…


I’m curious why I don’t see more outright solidarity from the self-proclaimed “reds” in the city with local striking workers.  I’ve seen them attending every possible kind of demonstration, but never supporting strikes (like some west coast anarchists have done in recent years in the ports), taking actions against scab sites and employers (like some of the union members with some sort of teeth), or reaching out to the frustrated at more reformist rallies (the way the insurrecto-oriented have been doing against prisons and the police, locally).

El derecho a vivir


Max Baginski: El derecho a vivir.

Publicado en Mother Earth en Enero de 1912.


El ser humano moderno está abundantemente dotado de derechos políticos. Tiene el derecho a la ciudadanía, siempre que sea virtuoso y no un Anarquista; puede elegir a sus propios gobernantes y carceleros; incluso disfruta, siendo parte de la mayoría, el privilegio de presenciar al gobierno actuar “en el nombre del pueblo.”
