This weekend I attended what might have been the best anarchist conference I’ve been to. If nothing, else, NC Rising was more encouraging and inspiring than anything I’ve attended in a good long time. The workshops were good, but by far the best thing about it was to see anarchists and anti-authoritarians of all stripes networking together with only the slightest bit of shit-talking. So good!
I got to see The Chicago Conspiracy, a new documentary about the ongoing revolt in Chile. It’s a remarkable piece of work; well-made and engaging. It shows the viewer why people are fighting from a more personal position than simply explaining that the government is bad.
