"We must discover forms of struggle which immediately break the whole structure of domestic work, rejecting it absolutely, rejecting our role as housewives and the home as the ghetto of our existence, since the problem is not only to stop doing this work, but to smash the entire role of housewife."

a friend once said:
no revolution is going to be generated
out of systemic
or structural laws.
we are on our own, and what we do
we have to do for ourselves.
we are the denizens
of a strange epoch,
the ‘given’ in a surreal situation.
while knowledge of space and time has been democratized, the
modes of inhabiting them (the modes of being) are controlled
more intensely than ever before. while sharing of information
is ubiquitous, understanding and love appear empty at best – at read more »
Originally appearing in the Spring 2009 issue of Rolling Thunder. This zine contains the entire article: the timleine, an analysis, and an interview with participants of the riot.
Following the police killing of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos in downtown Athens, Greece was wracked by weeks of unprecedented rioting. Anarchists and students, supported and often joined by signifcant swaths of the population, clashed with police, destroyed corporate and
government property and occupied government buildings, trade union offices, and media outlets, not to mention universities.
The Institute for Experimental Freedom announces a brand new Politics Is Not a Banana! We didn’t fall off—we’re back and more IGNORANT than ever. It’s fucking ON with the state form and EVERYTHING ELSE! Now there are three different manifestations of Politics Is Not a Banana. That’s a lot of invariance for deviant black-clad whatevers like us! We’re quite pleased with our naughty little selves. But don’t call this our “third issue”—that would presume LINEAR TIME! No, let’s just call it like it is: A FORCE OF DESTABILIZATION AND DETERRITORIALIZATION. read more »

New text from the Northwest.

There is a strong need to act out, to be absurd, to forget political restraints or ideological chains, to burn the fear of being disregarded as single issue.

"Raw Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl," Tiqqun, 1999-2001.
An english translation of Theorie de la Jeune-Fille recently appeared at younggirl.jottit.com.
As 1) reading long work off blogs can be somewhat unpleasant and 2) someone else seems to be serializing a fancy illustrated version of this, I felt a simply typeset version of the whole text, suitable for reading or printing, might be appreciated.
It will print into a fat 88 page booklet.
"Happiness and Magic" is a short essay by Italian theorist Giorgio Agamben, which has been formatted into a Zine. Agamben's work on biopolitics and bare life have heavily influenced Tiqqun, The Invisible Committee, Insurrectionist Anarchism, as well as wider currents of Leftist and Anti-Authoritarian academics. It is a poetic and novel way of approaching the subject shortcoming of structuring life around capitalist logic, as well as the joys of desubjectification. read more »
