Also, here’s a quote from the The Charter of Social Contract of the Rojava autonomous cantons (source):
“The autonomous areas of the democratic self-administration do not recognize the concept of nation state and the state based on the grounds of military power, religion, and centralism”
That’s really interesting.

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.

Stencil in Athens in May 2011, Riot cops and Nazi thugs one and the same.
Stencil was made in response to a Nazi pogrom in Athens in May 2011, when Golden Dawn members stabbed many immigrants in broad daylight while police watched on, and also the brutal riot police beating of demonstrators using the metal handles of the clubs during a general strike a couple days earlier.
My mate James got this recently tho. Absolutely epic.
I dreamt last night that I was trying to help Stalin live longer and develop new technology to help beat the USA and I was shot by a spy dressed as a baby.
The 1992 Los Angeles Riots were the first in a new type—mischaracterized by the media as “race riots,” the events in LAwere more that of a general, decentralized uprising which made no demandsand, in so doing, were able to cohere a new national atmosphere around them, as riots again spread across the country. No longer were the riots simply limited to a district or two, as had been the case in the Watts riots thirty years prior. Now rioting spread with the entire city as its substrate—a tendency seen again, though in more limited ways, in Cincinnati in 2001.
It is not coincidental that this new national sequence of rioting began in LA, one of the US’ most suburban cities. The Los Angeles riots were a window into the future, their decentralized geography foreshadowing the evolution of the American riot as it adapted to the new ghettos that, in 1992, had only begun to be built. And now, twenty years later, Ferguson offers us a second window: this time into how those new ghettos might burn.
