On “law” and state political repression of Occupy/Decolonize in the lands now called the United States …

This essay gets it right. After all, the American people claiming democratic rights is just oh so inconvenient for the 1% and their representatives.

Stand up, fight back! http://www.salon.com/2012/02/14/occupy_fights_the_law_will_the_law_win/singleton/ John Hayakawa Torok 19871

  PAN Communique #1 Commencement of an Insurrection   This is a communique from the People’s Anarchist Network.  We are embedded in the unconscious psyche of Western civilization, and we are in the streets, though not always embedded there.  We like the wilderness too.  We are anonymous cells of friends working for the revolution, in diverse ways.  We are hackers, we are treespikers, we’re parents artists and lovers and comrades.  We are anonymous.  Like psilocybe mycelia we grow underground, unseen, in shit. We’re working with PAN as an umbrella network … Continued

CALL

The triumph of civilisation lacks nothing. Neither political terror nor affective poverty. Nor universal sterility. The desert cannot grow anymore: it is everywhere. But it can still deepen. Faced with the evidence of the catastrophe, there are those who get indignant and those who take note, those who denounce and those who get organised. We are among those who get organised.     continue… http://bloom0101.org/   19745
