Ship wrecks, class struggle in the New World, anarcho-primitivism in the 1600s, utopia realized. Excerpted from The Many-Headed Hydra by Peter Linebaugh and Marcus Rediker.
“What hath a more adamantine power to draw unto it the consent and attraction of the idle, untoward, and wretched number of the many than liberty and fullness of sensuality?”
French cities burst back into flames after President Sarkozy’s election on a ‘clean the scum off the streets with a high-pressure hose’ ticket. It won’t be the last time, as long as the factors necessitating the mass revolt of November 2005 remain in place, in France and elsewhere. This text, based on Emilio Quadrelli’s interviews in the Paris banlieues during and after the 2005 events, overthrows the whole spectrum of slurs against the racialised, pathologised racaille. read more »

This pdf text — 'Constructive Anarchism in Aotearoa' — puts forward some ideas on constructive anarchist action, in oder to encourage discussion. Please read, forward widely to anyone interested, and most importantly, respond!
The text is probably too long to place here in full, but it deals with ideas around constructive action we as anarchists can take in our current state of low visibility, especially in the workplace and in our communities. I've tried to write a text I've always wanted to read with regard to concrete anarchist action in NZ. read more »
Common Action is proud to announce the publication of our newsletter Intersections. Written with regular people in mind, the newsletter strives to connect community issues to anarchist ideas, serving as a paper that any neighbor might find interesting, informative, and reliable. It can be left in laundromats and bus seats just as easily as a radical bookstore.
This issue's contents include:
Whose Streets? Gentrification in Seattle by Andrew Hedden and Jacquelyn Hermer
Northwest Anarchist People of Color Gathering: A Report-Back by Brooke Stepp read more »
An A4 flyer from Garage Collective (Aotearoa/NZ) on the financial crisis and it's effects in New Zealand. Includes a very basic run-down on shadow banking and other finance stuff.
In what is perhaps a first for Aotearoa Pakeha anarchists (please let us know if that isn't the case) 'From the Kitchen' is a zine devoted to the discussion of anarchist mens relationship/response to the feminist movement(s) and our own sexist behaviour. The zine isn't about pointing fingers but instead is done in the style of critical self-reflection by the authors about sexism in their own lives.
Topics in the first issue include:
Me(n) and Pornography
Slugs in the Sandpit - The Gendered politics of the garden
Meat Robots Unite read more »
From Shipyard Resistance to Direct Democracy and Community Control
