El Sonecito

Just found out about this dude, he makes excellent corridos! Sonecito, or Sergio Campos, evokes the music style prohibited by the church and authorities in the 18th century because it, and its cousin the copla, was a folk style that criticized the powerful in its time. Check one of his songs out at El Chamuco!

Fire to the Prisons #12 is in print!

Need something to read, jolines? Fire to the Prisons, which has been documenting the frustrating work of anarchist direct action –yes kids, sometimes less than peaceful –sometimes yearly, sometimes biennially, sometimes not at all since 2007, is back in action. Print your own damn copies and distribute it!

The paper includes some good writing about Ferguson (including a link to directly aid detained Ferguson citizens), Kobani, gentrification, looting and rioting, and ecological disaster. There’s also the usual list of reported resistance actions against the state and its agents down to little things like prisoners hitting their jailers back, something you also read in Black Seed, etc.

Like what you read? Why don’t you get off your ass, measure your system and contexts, and write for them? They’d probably like the help!

Liccardo Inaugurated Mayor of Rich, Homeless, Slaves

liccardoinaugurationA post for all “pro-business,” “pro-innovation” politicians who build skyscrapers and raise the liberal president’s stock market on the backs of thousands of local homeless citizens and victims of human trafficking and slavery. Get out the wheat paste, people! Stick this meme to REAL walls! Never again can a mayor of San Jose enjoy the luxury of a tenure without retaliation from the people he vowed to oppress when taking the oath of office. And that goes for his homeboy Cortese, too.
