About the Movie:

JOHNNY CARIQUEO: THE PERMANENT RIOT” (with English Subtitles)*

An emotional depiction of love & rage within the context of
repression and permanent struggle against authority. It was impossible that a Young Mapuche Anarchist, Jhonny Cariqueo, would go unnoticed by the murderous repression and racist authority of the Chilean State.
Jhonny was murdered within the mobilizations of the Day of the Young Combatant, on March 29^th , 2008. A MUST SEE film for today’s youth.

Anarchist Discussion on Cooperation with the State

No Compromise: Taking Space Without Permission

This flyer has writings about not compromising ourselves further through cooperation with the State.

Here are some quotes:

“We gain momentum in struggle when people see our unwillingness to compromise – we become dignified, empowered, and attractive to the discontented. We become an uncontrollable collective force that instills fear in the system – the police realize when they fuck with us, it’s on.”

“If we do not wish to find ourselves in a world where no one really lives, where no one really knows anyone else, where everyone has become a mere cog in a machine meshing with other cogs but remaining truly alone, then we must have the strength to attack alienation in every way we can. Otherwise, we may just find there is no place left where we can meet face to face.”

It is relevant everywhere, not only Southern Ontario.

Why are anarchists involved in the Occupy Movement?

At the base of the Occupy Movement, is the fact that capitalism isn’t working. This is a global movement against a system that sees a wealthy few controlling the majority of money, resources and land.

These same few people control politics on parliament hill, decisions made in our communities and have vested interests in continuing wars abroad and the war here against the poor.

The Occupy movements over arching goals of challenging the class divisions in this society can never be negotiated without a revolution.

In the streets and squares, the Occupations are organized horizontally so that everyone can speak for themselves, without appointing leaders.

The Occupations around the world have liberated space for us to organize autonomously against capitalism. They have created a space for us to help each other out for our mutual interests, sometimes known as “Mutual Aid”.

With 1500 occupations across the world, each one expresses solidarity with those attempting to occupy the major financial districts where all the countries wealth is exchanged. These are also places for us to start conversations about addressing issues face us in our communities too.

The Occupy Movement is already ripe with anarchist ideas in action, and we want to to our part to see this through to it’s inevitable conclusion…
