Here's an interview with a French fighter with the YPG in Syria. He contradicts himself twice (Amnesty is wrong about villages being razed by YPG... they are only razed for strategic reasons; we don't need imperialist help to defeat IS... NATO air strikes are key to our offensive), but that helps it sound less like a pure propaganda piece.
I've read interviews with a few other fighters, and this guy is definitely the most political (and optimistic). He's fighting in a communist unit, but I wonder how many of the Kurdish fighters overall hold communism to be such an important aspect of the struggle for Rojava.
An interview with Dave Strano on anarchist gun clubs and reaching the American white working class.
"If rednecks turned their guns on politicians and not migrants, if Crips turned their guns on CEOs and not Bloods, if poor folks turned their guns that they currently point at each other against our common class enemy, we may not have to live in a world of capitalist, statist, and racist exploitation and oppression."
From slavery-era and post-Reconstruction miscegenation laws to the religion-fueled popular movements to ban same-sex marriage to the recent Obergefell decision which reflects a successful conservative redirection of the queer liberation movement into simply "marriage equality" and a movement to preserve marriage as a privilege and means to regulate public welfare, the entire pathetic history of marriage in America is one long case study in the failure of democracy.
For anyone interested, I can lend my endorsement to this document as both a decent overview of anarchist perspectives on marriage equality as well as a good list of further resources on the issue.
"In the late 1800’s, the Mormon pioneers, exiled to the Utah territory, implemented one of the largest experiments in cooperative living that the United States has ever known. They wanted to create a society with no rich and no poor."
I thought this video was a good presentation of something that sounds so silly on its face ("anarcho-monarchism"). I'll always have a fondness for Distributism because it was reading GK Chesterton in high school that first got me interested in anti-capitalist thought. I've since realized that the libertarian socialist traditions make Distributism superfluous. But while I'd rather they keep their bourgeois families, kings, and popes to themselves... I'd be happy with three acres and a cow.
"The Kate Sharpley Library exists to preserve and promote anarchist history. We preserve the output of the anarchist movement, mainly in the form of books, pamphlets, newspaper, leaflets and manuscripts but also badges, recordings, photographs etc."
