Anonymer Interviewbericht mit einem Genossen in Minneapolis zum aktuellen Aufstand in den USA

No Demands

They have helicopters and armored vehicles. They’re driving cars into crowds, firing teargas, and flash grenades. They’re beating people with batons and trampling them with horses. They’re murdering people in broad daylight. The brutality is flagrant and obscene. Yet “it’s not police brutality, it’s police practice,” as Professor Dylan ...

66 Days

3 Jun , 2020  

It took 66 days to get from the first shelter-in-place order to the first riot. Alongside the absolute outrage over the murder of George Floyd, we might also register some small sense of hope that it remains possible for people to struggle against the arrangement of the world that is ...

Theses on the Uprising

3 Jun , 2020  

We oppose these violent police thugs who roam the streets.

These terrorists who suffocate and torture Black and Brown people by the thousands each year, instilling terror and exhaustion in everyone left behind. We denounce the brutal cops who kidnap migrant children and their parents, who disappear trans sisters, who ...

AMÉRIQUE, FONDU AU NOIR

3 Jun , 2020  

Depuis Madison, dans le Wisconsin, le philosophe Frédéric Neyrat nous a transmis ce tour d’horizon de la société américaine au moment de son embrasement. Si dans le rapport de force en cours, nous ne pensons pas qu’il faille espérer quoi que ce soit du parti démocrate, bien au contraire, ce ...

#FTP WAVE / For George Floyd and against this anti-black world.

2 Jun , 2020  

On the 28th anniversary of the Los Angeles riots that began on April 29, 1992 we wrote “Looking at the city today, the only thing keeping the fuse off is the threat of COVID-19. The same racist, classist, sexist, anti-black bullshit we had back in 1992 is still here but ...

29 Mai , 2020  

Die Demonstrationen in Minneapolis markieren einen historischen Wendepunkt in der Ära von COVID-19. Wie wir im März schrieben, gibt es einige Dinge, für die es sich lohnt, den Tod zu riskieren.

Thoughts to Hanau

20 Feb , 2020  

Yesterday there was a terrorist attack in Hanau, Germany. It seems that the white male terrorist killed 9 persons in 2 Shisha-Bars, later killed his mother and himself. Most of the victims seem to belong to Kurdish communities. The killing was racist.

But parts of German press first pushed racist ...

White Purity

26 Sep , 2018

The content of this identity, unsurprisingly, is left unexamined and undefined. It is the false foundation of the prototypically American model of pseudo-politics …

Free movement over markets is a minimum demand.

In the most recent German elections, Die Linke (the Left) secured the fifth most seats in the Bundestag, the nation’s parliament. At the same time, nationalist Alternative for Germany (AfD) came third, to the consternation of everyone who isn’t an asshole. While ...
