Today may be the day to donate to Riseup - by via The Riseup Birds
When you give to Riseup, know that you are also supporting a large portion of our users who rely on our services and are not in a position to give us money. Lots of folks live in the Global South, ie countries financially plundered by imperialism and neoliberalism, and we’d rather they donate to more local tech collectives. Likewise, lots of people deal with the ravages of poverty. We aren’t expecting or asking any of you to donate. But for everyone else who can throw a little mutual aid ...

Chronik: a new blog documenting social war from Germany - by chronik.blackblogs.org
More than two years have passed since Til Schweiger obtained the closure of directactionde.ucrony.net. Since that time, it’s been more difficult to create an overview – and to definitively give some courage. Indymedia Linksunten is used and considered by many as a platform, but texts published on it soon become archived on back pages. Chronics in ‘underground notebooks’ or listings by topics create an overview from time to time. Much remains unnoticed, especially without a claim of re...

Ramsey Orta has been catching hell. (video/quicktime 45.1MB) - by WeCopwatch
over the last year it wasn't been organized copwatch groups or projects that brought the killing of Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, or Walter Scott to the public eye, but rather individuals who live in the areas being impacted by police violence. With this overt transition of copwatch from the privileged to the oppressed, there is a responsibility for organized Copwatch groups, as well as police accountability groups to support and insulate these "Copwatchers" so they are not targeted for retaliat...

What is the Role of Anarchist Media? - by Anarchist News
Despite various degrees of agreement between common tendencies in anarchist thought, the tools that we use to engage with our politics in the virtual realm of media may complement, contribute to, provoke, or otherwise engage with the actions or other lived experiences. It’s hard to deny the potential role of media to re-contextualize the ways we view or chose to interact with the world around us, as well as the ways it can inspire us intellectually or emotionally.

Following the online publication of an article satyrizing the Minister of Health Philippos Patsalis on July 11, the Cyprus IndyMedia Editorial Collective has been subjected to a series of illegal abuses by State authorities which, so far, have also been shamefully condoned by the lower Courts.

Internet providers are throttling you in order to limit your access to political informati - by Emily
Internet providers are throttling you in order to limit your access to political information The internet, on your phone or tablet, goes way faster, and delivers more news, and media, than you are being allowed to see. The device in your hand already goes ten times faster and holds 100 times more news and media than your mobile ISP lets you have. In other words, the devices you paid your hard earned money for, are being choked off, on purpose, by T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Comcast and othe...
