The focus this week is on drug trafficking and False Flag operations. We supplement the adaptation with some classic Michael Ruppert on the narco-connection to US politics, Mark Crispin Miller on the phrase "conspiracy theory" and a speaker on the FSB and the Ryazan Apartment bombing of 1999.

The May 29 Case in La Paz (TIPNIS and the FAI-FRI)

14-08-2013 13:05

On May 29, 2012, 13 people were arrested in La Paz, Bolivia, as part of an antiterrorism witch hunt directed against anarchists in response to a series of arsons, bombings, and sabotage claimed by the FAI-FRI and related to government plans to build a highway through TIPNIS, a protected rainforest. Subsequently, most of those arrested have been released, in some cases after snitching to prosecutors. Two people remain locked up. This article is an attempt to cut through the pervasive misinformation surrounding the case, and facilitate solidarity for those who deserve it. It is also an attempt to learn certain practices of communication in anarchist circles that aid repression and hinder solidarity.

Together with comrades in La Paz we have convoked an international day of solidarity for May 29, 2013. We intend this article to lend clarity and background to that convocation.

NO TAV movement again under attack

14-08-2013 09:12

NO TAV movement again under attack

For twenty years in mountains of North West Italy, not far from Torino, a powerful movement has grown that has resisted the Italian government’s plan to build a high velocity railroad, which in addition to being very costly and economically useless would certainly destroy the mountain environment. Over and over, the NO TAV movement, now well-known throughout Europe, has come under attack by the police and the army, besides being the object of a smear campaign by politicians of almost every political stripe. However, so strong has been the determination of the people of Val di Susa and their many supporters to resist this assault on their land and their lives that so far no real construction has taken place and all that the companies in charge of the project have achieved has been to surround thousands of acres of land, belonging to the local population, with barbed wires and cops.

Nottingham Fixers - become a Fixer

13-08-2013 14:55

Nottingham Fixers is a Nottingham-based community group who run a Fix-it space at Sneinton Market on the 3rd Saturday of every month.

The group are currently looking for new fixers to get involved.


The Nottingham Fixers repair space aims to help people fix items, by not only fixing them, but by teaching them how to fix, so in future they can fix items instead of buying new.

The reason? Because we have a major problem with consumption, and we are in a society where people are very happy to buy new things, instead of fixing them, simply because it is easier & cheaper.
Nottingham Fixers is a community group who want to change the way we consume things, so that instead of throwing things away we fix them, and just as importantly we teach people how to fix things themselves.

We need people with all sorts of skills, because we never know what people will bring to have fixed. It could be:

  • mechanical
  • electrical/electronic
  • digital
  • textiles

You don't need to be an expert in these skills - we will have fixers on the day who can shadow you. You will need to bring your own tools, and conduct a risk assessment on what could go wrong.

It's great fun, and is great satisfaction for helping to fix someone's broken item for them.
