Resistance

Anarchist report from Ferguson

Several people have asked me to write about what I found in Ferguson today. Here is my brief dehydrated tired scribble before bed. Do not judge me I literally just typed this out.

Grief, pride and anger is the short answer.

Poster: Queer Means Dangerous

This poster was created as a token of love and in solidarity with all those who resist. From Luke O'Donovan to the Trans-Liberation marchers Atlanta has many reasons to be proud.

Keep fighting and never ever stop! <3

Text from the poster comes from toward the queerest insurrection

Walkout: Stop the Cuts

Date/Time: 
Tue, 12/04/2012 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: 
Emory University Quad
United States

The semester is ending. The libraries are packed. Our nerves are on edge. But we have not forgotten the irresponsible, anti-democratic, anti-intellectual decisions made by the College and the Graduate School. We have not forgotten the way the language of diversity and inclusion has been marshaled to racist and sexist ends, and the administration's refusal to be accountable to students, staff, or faculty members.

It's time to take a stand. We will gather on the quad and remind the administration that the Em

Bank Withdraws Attempt to Arrest Sherrye Calhoun

The war is not over, but a battle has been won.

On October 23rd, 2012, Sherrye Calhoun received a letter stating that Eric Bender had applied for an arrest warrant against her on the grounds of trespassing in her own home of 30 years. Sherrye defiantly moved back into her home after being evicted on August 3, so while it was expected that the police would eventually return to harass her at the bank’s command, the letter nevertheless came as a surprise.

After receiving the letter, rather than sit back and wait for the courts to side with the banks–as they did time and time again in her earlier legal battles–she picked up the phone and contacted her friends, neighbors, and new allies to help her continue the fight for her home.

Bank Threatens Sherrye Calhoun with Arrest

Sherrye Calhoun has lived in her home for 30 years. After seeking help several years ago to keep making payments on her mortgage, she was swindled out of her home. She has been fighting to stay there ever since.

On the morning of Friday, August 3, Dekalb County Sherriff Brown’s deputies evicted Ms. Calhoun from her home, giving her enough time to grab her purse. Sheriff Brown is not new to evictions. He recently evicted Christine Frazer, 63, and her 85-year-old mother at gunpoint in an illegal 3 a.m. eviction.

Fresh Crushed Police Crusiers, Yum!

There comes a time in life when one may decide that enough is enough! If one has a tractor and the police have beaten you up, then you might just climb into your tractor and have a go at crushing police cruisers. I'm sure many of us have had similar fantasies. It is difficult not to have such a fantasy when, on a daily basis, you see the police beating innocent people, hitting people with false charges, lying to judges, and generally being thuggish abusers of power. 

Emory's Economy of Illegalities

A certain economy of illegalities exists at Emory University. One can say that there is a distribution of illegal activities, and they are administered to differently, rather than entirely eliminated. The important point is that the desire to eliminate all illegal activities at Emory University is non-existent. Rather, some illegalities go punished while others are tolerated, and still others are quite encouraged and even rewarded. The act of differentiating between these types of illegalities is political, insofar as the decisions to cultivate or exterminate the practices in question, or even the drives that may lead to the carrying out of such practices, depend solely on the interests of those administering Emory’s own Law – the Emory administration.

March 13 Walk-Out

Date/Time: 
Tue, 03/13/2012 - 11:30am - 1:30pm
Location: 
Campus March to Board of Regents
Courtland Street
Atlanta
United States

A walk-out is a form of resistance. When students walk out, they are refusing their roles as students and are participating in real and direct action in the politics that effect their daily lives.

We ask the students at Georgia State, and members of Occupy Georgia State, to join in a walk out of class on March 13. We are walking out to resist the university becoming increasingly privatized, and increasingly segregated by fee hikes and the HOPE scholarship cuts, and to refuse the ban on undocumented students. We as students, faculty, staff, and members of the Georgia State community and beyond, are walking out against the austerity measures passed both against the university, and the overall community.

We will walk out of class and rally in the GSU courtyard, and march on the Board of Regents meeting which is down the street from Georgia State University.
