This new issue of our newsletter has just been released. As another year draws to a close, Albert and King are busier than ever traveling the country and the world, sharing their stories and providing inspiration and hope that good things can happen in this horribly broken criminal justice system. Next week they'll be heading to Belgium and Germany to work with their friends at Amnesty on launching another Write for Rights Campaign....

We refuse to let our voices go unheard in this process. Enbridge claims a near-impeccable pipeline safety record but has in fact been responsible for hundreds of thousands of gallons of crude oil spilled each year in the last three decades. We applaud Michele Naar-Obed for testifying in Duluth and highlighting the violations Enbridge has already wrought on the environment. We resist Enbridge’s attempts to buy its permits and oppose the unilateral force with which they are attempting to determ...

Mr. John Hankins, Director of the Craftsman Guild of New Orleans, offers his answer to the guiding question of the Paper Monuments project: what is an appropriate monument to our city today? His story draws our attention to the often unacknowledged work of craftsmen who do ironwork, ornamental plastering, restoration welding, and blacksmithing, and on the concrete block where the Jefferson Davis monument once stood, Mr. Hankins' words about the craftsmen Philip Reid formulate into a monument ...

"The fact remains that US EPA scientists last November found all current uses of chlorpyrifos on food-related crops put children at risk due to unsafe levels in our food, air, water, and workplaces. Like the Trump Administration, the DPR continues to ignore the top government scientists in the land and continues to put our communities at risk. Nothing short of a total suspension of use will suffice to ensure the protection of the most vulnerable populations."...

image What to Make of Germany’s Ban of Linksunten Indymedia 480_freiburg-linksunten-indymedia-solidarity_1.jpg by Greg Macdougall
The criminalization of radical movement media like linksunten reveals the threat our communications face under increasingly authoritarian conditions. Various Indymedias have seen this pattern in other forms since the network’s founding at the 1999 protests in Seattle against the World Trade Organization – raids, seizures of webservers, and attacks on Indymedia centres established to cover summit protests. The German case indicates the extent to which existing legal structures can be harnessed...

Press release from the Coordination des Groupes Anarchistes, an organization member of Anarkismo in France about the recent shut down and ban on the German-speaking website Linksunten Indymedia and the house raids that followed. This represents a new step in the repression of our activities and ideas in Europe. The last time something of this significance occurred was in 1995, when the German central power banned the newspaper "Radikal", which sparked many demonstrations all over the count...

Exposing the supporters of KKK fascist David Duke may help to slow down the rise of fascism in the good old U.S.A. At the least, it will allow the public to decide if they want to give their money to those involved in supporting anti-Semitism, the Ku Klux Klan, bigots, racists, and the hate mongers of the world!...

CORNEL WEST: Those 20 of us who were standing, many of them clergy, we would have been crushed like cockroaches if it were not for the anarchists and the anti-fascists who approached, over 300, 350 anti-fascists. We just had 20. And we’re singing "This Little light of Mine," you know what I mean? So that the anti-fascists, and then, crucial, the anarchists, because they saved our lives, actually. We would have been completely crushed, and I’ll never forget that....

After thousands in Phoenix had rallied in support of immigrants to loudly denounce Trump’s attempts to pardon White supremacy, President Trump did it anyway. On August 25, he pardoned former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted for criminal contempt for disobeying a federal court judge’s order to stop the unconstitutional practice of detaining individuals based solely on suspicion about their immigration status....

O governo alemão proibiu o site do coletivo Indymedia Linksunten linksunten.indymedia.org, a plataforma de língua alemã mais utilizada por organizações políticas radicais. Eles também realizaram batidas na cidade de Freiburg para apreender computadores e perseguir aqueles que acusam de administrar o site, absurdamente justificando isso com base na acusação de que os supostos adminstradores são parte de uma organização ilegal com o objetivo de destruir a Constituição Alemã. Isso representa uma...
