    December has been a month marked with the insurgent memory of anarchic ones who rise up in open antagonism with whatever form of authority.

    December 2018 will be the 10th year since the companion Alexandros Grigoropoulos was taken from the streets, assassinated by police bullets in Exarchia, Greece, in 2008.

    It is also the month during which, 5 years ago, the companion Sebastian Oversluij died, killed by the bullets of a mercenary of capital during a bank expropriation in 2013 in Chile.

    Because the memory of our dead is fuel to stoke the flame of our life in permanent revolt, Black December is again a meeting point of multiform action and reflection on ourselves, our forces as a combative minority, and the current faces of the totalitarian enemy: authority and its world of hierarchies, fascism, patriarchy, speciesism and the many expressions of the desire for supremacy of some over others.

    Once more, Black December remains an invitation to insurgent communication of the wild heat of offensive action against power.

    Iconoclastic memory with our dead.

    Offensive solidarity with the companions facing repression in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Russia, Italy, Greece and all the world.

    For a Black December, see to it that anarchy lives!!

    With author Nazia Kazi

    Islamophobia, Race, and Global Politics is a powerful introduction to the scope of Islamophobia in the U.S. Drawing on examples such as the legacy of Barack Obama, the mainstream media’s portrayal of Muslims, and the justifications given for some of America’s most recent military endeavors, author Nazia Kazi highlights the vast impact of Islamophobia, connecting this to a long history of US racism. Kazi shows how American Islamophobia and racism are at once domestic—occurring within the borders of the United States—and global—a matter of foreign policy and global politics. Using Islamophobia as a unique case study, Kazi asks the reader to consider how war and empire-building relate to racism. The book sheds light on the diverse experiences of American Muslims, especially the varying ways they have experienced Islamophobia, and confronts some of the misguided attempts to tackle this Islamophobia

    The only book to risk detailing how this country’s secret grand jury system works from the inside: After serving nine days as an increasingly outraged grand juror in Manhattan, Ernie Larsen was forcibly removed and charged with contempt of court for trying against all odds to impede the routinized exercise of racialized injustice. Taking place in 2014 (just months before the incendiary events in Ferguson Missouri and the rise of Black Lives Matter), this factual exposè remixes the traditions of radical protest fiction and the nonfiction novel.

    Until now, no one has ever written a book about how the secret grand jury system works in this country from the inside—from the point of view of a grand juror. The Trial before the Trial is that insider’s expose. Ernest Larsen served nine days on a special narcotics grand jury in Manhattan before being forced off—at the insistence of the district attorney—and accused of contempt of court. Why? Because day after day he kept trying to halt what he saw as the exercise of racialized injustice. This book, at once ironic and angry, written in the form of a nonfiction novel, brings to light what really happens on a grand jury, a factual story that takes place just a few months before the events in Ferguson, Missouri and the rise of Black Lives Matter.

    This is a call for a raucous night of strong solidarity with those imprisoned by the state on one of the noisiest nights of the year. On New Year’s Eve gather your crew, collective, community, organization, or just yourself and come together to raise a racket and remind those on the inside that they are not alone.

    Internationally, noise demonstrations outside of prisons are a way to remember those who are held captive by the state and a way to show solidarity with imprisoned comrades and loved ones. We come together to break the loneliness and isolation.

    We know that prison is beyond reform and must be completely abolished. It is a mechanism of repression used by the state to maintain a social order rooted in white supremacy, patriarchy, and heteronormativity. To come together outside of the sites of repression is to also stand in defiance of what they represent.

    The logic of the state and capital—of punishment and imprisonment, must be replaced by a rejection of oppression and exploitation. This call is one step in that direction.

    Wherever you are, meet on New Year’s Eve at the prisons, jails, and detention centers, be loud in solidarity with those imprisoned and to push forward the idea of a world free from domination.

    We send this call in solidarity with those defying state repression of large scale dissent: from the Yogyakarta prisoners in Indonesia to those in Russia facing repression as anarchist anti-state organizers, to all of those in the spaces between.

    We want a world without walls and borders.

    We will fight together until everyone is free!

    Two years ago, anarchists took the streets to open Trump’s presidency with a powerful act of defiance. January 20, 2017 was supposed to represent the dawn of a new authoritarian nationalism; instead, it marked the beginning of a new era of resistance. The actions around the US on J20 helped to catalyze a wave of direct action that prevented Trump from immediately implementing his agenda.

    A year later, in response to the ensuing repression, we called for a nationwide day of solidarity on January 20, 2018 to support those facing charges and expand our capacity in the face of escalating far-right violence. Now, with the J20 charges dropped, we can focus on building capacity for the future. We’d like to see a nationwide week of action around January 20, 2019 to show that attempts to crush us only make us stronger.

    This is a call to expand our movement and connect with everyone else who is being policed, automated, evicted, and displaced to the margins. The Great Recession never ended; despite “our” rulers trumpeting the success of the economy, most of us are working longer hours for less money, as everything from the gig economy to artificial intelligence renders us obsolete. Police, borders, and prisons kill, divide, and confine as hurricanes and wildfires rage outside our windows. Yet all of these crises offer us the opportunity to connect with others to create a better world.

    We are calling for a week of action starting on the weekend of January 20 to promote survival programs, mutual aid initiatives, and other projects that meet the crisis of capitalism head on.
