Queer Liberation and Anarchist Communism
DSC00140.JPGAs anarchist communists, it is only logical and consistent with our principles in the struggle for a free humanity that we support the personal, cultural, and institutional fight against patriarchy, hetero-sexism, the gender bi-nary system and all other struggles for queer liberation both in themselves and in their intersectionalities with capitalism, the state, white supremacy, and all other forms of human oppression.

The Mortgage Crisis in the USA
drooker4.gifCommentators complain of "partisanship" in Washington. Society's problems are said to result from infighting between parties. We should celebrate, then, because Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a plan to end the mortgage crisis. What solution do they offer? Handouts to Big Business, and "fiscal discipline" for the rest.

The Degeneration of the Russian Revolution
3andywarholredlenin.jpgThe Russian revolution go from an extreme popular democracy to the horrors of Stalin’s totalitarian state capitalism. How did this happen and when did this happen? What does this tell us about the nature of socialism?

How did the Russian revolution go from an extreme popular democracy to the horrors of Stalin’s totalitarian state capitalism? The Russian revolution of 1917 involved vast numbers of people. It included almost all the working class of the cities, most of the peasants, and the mostly-peasant ranks of the military (swollen by the needs of World War I). The working people created delegated representational councils (soviets), along with factory committees, unions, regimental councils, peasant village councils, and cooperatives.

SDS Takes Over Evergreen State College with Style
sds_today300.jpgIt has been twelve days since the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) took over the fourth floor of an administration building in Evergreen State College (TESC) in Olympia, Washington, to protest the unilateral decision of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Art Costantino, of taking away their student group status. The sit-in was originally organized “to draw attention to the diminishing rights of students at TESC and to regain SDS’ status as a student organization” but it quickly evolved into a mobilization of wits against the establishment. Since the takeover, students have organized political concerts, speeches, and radical workshops that range from queer theory to direct action and economic alternatives to neoliberalism. They have also re-named the building where they're staging the sit-in, the People's University.
