An Anarcha-feminist Profile: Mollie Steimer

Mollie Steimer died of a heart attack on July 23, 1980 at her home in Cuernavaca. Mexico. Mollie was 82 years old, and throughout her long life she was consumed with a passion to work for the good of the people. Born on November 21, 1897, in southwestern Russia, Mollie emigrated to the United States in 1913 with her family. She immediately went to work in a garment factory to help support her family. She came across radical literature including the works of Bakunin, Kropotkin, and Emma Goldman. By 1917 Mollie had become an anarchist, to which she dedicated her life.

With the outbreak of the Russian Revolution, she plunged into agitational activity. She joined a young group of anarchists called Frayhart which contained a dozen or so young women and men, all of them workers of East-European Jewish origin.

Algeria: Same Boss, Same Struggle

The information in this file was recently published in FREEDOM - the fortnightly anarchist journal published by FREEDOM PRESS:

FREEDOM PRESS (IN ANGEL ALLEY) 84B WHITECHAPEL HIGH STREET, LONDON E1 7QX GREAT BRITAIN

Do write for a sample copy or for a copy of our booklist of publications. We will be putting more of this information out so watch this spot...

Algeria no longer seems to be hitting the headlines with a string of communiques listing the assassinations of militant syndicalists, intellectuals and ordinary and anonymous people who made the mistake of letting be known their desire to live and dress outside the boundaries of religious dogma.

A certain fatalism lies behind the bloody stories in most press commentaries.

Anarchism’s Promise for Anti-Capitalist Resistance

by Cindy Milstein

For many, a “new anarchism” seemed to have been birthed amid the cold rain and toxic fog that greeted the November 1999 World Trade Organization protest. Yet rather than the bastard child of an emergent social movement, this radical politics of resistance and reconstruction had been transforming itself for decades. Seattle’s direct action only succeeded in making it visible again. Anarchism, for its part, supplied a compelling praxis for this historical moment. And in so doing, it not only helped shape the present anti-capitalist movement; it also illuminated principles of freedom that could potentially displace the hegemony of representative democracy and capitalism.

For A World Without Moral Order

by Gilles Dauvé

The present article is an introduction to a critique of social mores, a contribution to the necessary task of revolutionary anthropology.

The communist movement possesses a dimension both of class and of humanity. Although the central role of the proletarian worker is at the foundation of that movement, and although that movement works toward human community, it is neither a form of workerism nor of humanism. For the time being, reformism lives off separation by the accumulation of demands in parallel spheres, never calling the spheres themselves into question. One measure of the potency of any communist movement is (or should be) its capacity to recognize, and in practice to go beyond the gap or contradiction between the dimensions of class and of community.

Anarchist and anarchy quotes and much more.

"Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hardheaded realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners." ~ Edward Abbey

Phoenix Anti-Capitalist Conference 2015

The 2nd Phoenix Anti-Capitalist Conference is rapidly approaching, and will be held at the Nile Theater on Sunday, February 8th. In coming together, we celebrate 2014's mounting resistance in Arizona and across the U.S., reflect upon the fluid context of our struggle, and learn from our experiences to prepare for the coming year. The Conference provides a unique opportunity for active and aspiring radicals in Arizona and across the Southwest to come together, make connections, and strategize on creative ways of building a counter hegemony to the fascistic right-wing dominance of the region.

Bail Fund for Eric against Police Kidnapping

Eric Trunk

Dear friends - our fundraiser on YouCaring was deleted; they don’t allow legal support fundraisers - so we created this one. So far we have raised $542.81 - so much love and gratitude to those of you who donated, and thank you for your messages of support. We have $3,000 more to go; but if it happens that we raise more than this, we will donate the remainder to the Bay Area Anti-Repression Crew. Here’s the original fundraiser description:
On New Year’s Eve, our comrade and friend Eric Garcia was brutally and arbitrarily arrested by police and held on false charges. This campaign seeks to reimburse Eric’s bond cosigner for bailing him out of jail. A more detailed description of the incident can be found below.
