The downstairs section of the shop is badly damaged. Electrics are damaged. Many books are burnt or charred. Upstairs is untouched. No one was hurt.

Anarchists Detained by Counter-Terrorist Police on Return from Swiss Conference

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- Anarchist Federation - Organising for Resistance | AF | AFED | IAF | IFA


For the past week, thousands of anarchists from across Europe have been converging in St.Imier, Switzerland to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the founding of the Anarchist international. The gathering took the form of a festival and educational, with music, films and entertainment as well as workshops and discussions.

On returning from the St Imier gathering, two anarchists, one a member of the UK Anarchist Federation, were detained for nearly two hours at Heathrow by SO15 (counter-terrorist) police. During the detention, the anarchists were told that their normal rights did not apply, and had their names, addresses, email addresses, DNA and fingerprints taken. The detained anarchists were also forced to sign forms – which may or may not be legal – waiving their rights to silence and a solicitor. Police also conducted a thorough search of personal possessions, photocopied literature and passports and took information from phones and cameras.

Sheffield Anarchist Bookfair 2012

23rd of June at Bank Street Arts, Bank Street, Sheffield S1 2DS

10:00 – 18:00

In April of this year it was announced that the UK had entered a “double-dip” recession. This cannot be disconnected from a much wider global crisis for capitalism, but in an immediate sense this means more cuts in pay, more unemployment, more repossessions, ever higher living costs – even greater austerity. This austerity, however, has a double-standard. While the government tells us that we must sacrifice our public services, financial security and access to education – putting the most vulnerable at ever greater risk – they are pursuing tax cuts for big business and handing over institutions like the NHS to private companies at huge expense. As always it is the needs of elites that come before those of working people.

Statement on the Informal Anarchist Federation and terrorist tactics

On the 11th of May Roberto Adinolfi, CEO of an Italian state controlled nuclear engineering company, was shot and wounded. A cell of the insurrectionist Informal Anarchist Federation have claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement, saying that it was an act of vengeance for deaths and environmental damage caused by the nuclear industry.

Sex Work – An Anarchist Feminist View

As anarchists, we want an end to all forms of oppression, including (but not limited to) economic oppression and the oppression of women under patriarchy. As workers, we must work to earn a wage to live on, or else rely on meagre state benefits. We do not choose whether or not we work; we do so out of necessity and in this way we are essentially slaves to the ruling class, who get rich from our labour while leaving us just enough to get by.

Interview on Anniversary of Founding of Anti-Authoritarian International

140 years ago, anarchists were kicked out of the First International by Marx and his allies and started their own International. Donnacha DeLong talks to Nick Heath from the Anarchist Federation about what happened 140 years ago and how anarchists have created a number of internationals in the years since. Nick also talks about the anniversary commemorations in St-Imier, Switzerland, planned for August this year. More details about the commemorations: http://www.anarchisme2012.ch/index.php?lang=en .

Anarchist Federation N30 leaflet

SYMBOLIC PROTEST OR FIGHT TO WIN?

Today is undoubtedly the most widespread strike action for years. With 24 public sector unions all striking on the same day, it is very welcome to see unions finally taking concerted action in this way.

However, it's also worth remembering that it will require much more than one day strikes to be sure of a real victory and today’s action will definitely need to be built on. But whether the trade unions are capable of doing this, especially given the weak, legalistic tactics unions are so entrenched in, is doubtful.

But aren’t the unions’ tactics already having an effect?
True, there has been some movement from the government and employers in response to positive strike ballots but this is just conciliatory noises, a ploy to make the unions look inflexible while obscuring the fact that the government and employers are actually offering us nothing. The trade unions long ago surrendered to anti-union legislation and other oppressive employment laws and have got so used to doing everything ‘through the proper legal channels’ that they are now incapable of properly fighting to win.

Welcome to Anarchist Theft Website

Anarchism is anti-state communism, don't be fooled by rightwing free market capitalists they have nothing to do with anarchism. In practical terms, anarchists aim for the destruction of the power of the ruling class and of all relationships based on domination and submission. This means taking over our industries and communities and changing them so as to meet the needs of both ourselves and the environment. Without this take-over we can struggle against capitalism but never replace it.
