Rights, Riots, and Our Enemies in Blue (May 2020)

Cities across the country are burning, after police in Minneapolis killed an African-American man who was already in restraints.  Of course those in the streets have a very clear idea of why this is happening, but for the puzzled observer, Roar has published an excerpt from my book Our Enemies in Blue, discussing the function of riots as a response to police brutality.

And for those curious about the historical roots of policing and the structural role of police brutality, AK Press is offering Enemies at a deep discount for the next couple days.



Mutual Aid (April 2020)

I gave an interview on KBOO radio, discussing the anarchist roots of the concept of mutual aid, why it is important in the midst of the pandemic, and how today’s mutual aid network can be tomorrow’s revolutionary militia.

The program also includes an interview with Popmob‘s Effie Baum, discussing current mutual aid efforts in Portland.  Popmob, along with Rosehip medics and others, are producing hand sanitizer and giving it away, especially to under-served and vulnerable populations.  They need donations.

The broadcast ends with a long discussion of the CIA-funded animated film made from George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm.
