way for lots of people to do that.20 Indeed, the newly evolving anarcho-punk narrative encompassed a range of interrelated and sympathetic ideological positions, ranging from anti-war statements (often aligned with the resurgence of CND, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament)21 to emerging forms of what might be termed anarchofeminism, animal rights,22 attacks on organised religion and key debates on the nature of resistance and models of anarchism in theory and practice.23 Content concerns were also reflected in the choice of images.

happening elsewhere, but were themselves an expression of anarchism. Working outside the No-Conscription League and its immediate networks, other anarchists – individuals and journals that were part of Goldman and Berkman’s extensive networks – also made their opposition to the war public. Louise Olivereau distributed material encouraging young men to refuse registration in Seattle, was convicted of violating the Espionage Act and subsequently served twenty-eight months in prison. Dr Marie Equi in Portland, Oregon, similarly spoke out against ‘preparedness’ and in favour

and 1914 the combination of a revived (libertarian) syndicalist movement, anti-militarism and anti-imperialism raced around the globe (in the North and the South), propelling anarchism to the forefront of the international left. A new era opened when a war-weakened Russia nearly succumbed to a direct action movement of soviets in 1905, and a call-up of Spanish soldiers to fight the Berbers in Morocco’s Rif Mountains sparked Barcelona’s ‘Tragic Week’ in 1909. Industrial unrest exploded in the USA, in the UK, in Sweden and in Latin America: the Mexican Revolution 70

Oration, to Plato’s Apology and Republic, to Burke,Voltaire, Cromwell, Shakespeare, Montesquieu, Washington, and countless others.18 He also absorbed the political traditions of his day, integrating aspects of socialism, positivism, liberalism, and anarchism in his anti-​colonialism and developing personal relationships with prominent activists in each of them.19 In total, then, Krishnavarma’s unusually heterodox intellectual trajectory enabled him to synthesize a broad range of philosophical influences, Eastern and Western, drawing on what Fischer-​Tiné describes as

/or when exactly to play. Piekut argues in ‘When Orchestras Attack’, the first chapter of his 2011 book, Experimentalism Otherwise , that Cage’s practice, while perhaps suggestive of utopian anarchism, actually embodied a ‘rather orthodox liberalism’, 4 in which musician subjects are given the illusion of choice while the restrictions on the frame

Some observations regarding ideological apostasy and the discourse of proletarian resistance
Mark Hayes

betrayal mocks the theory and practice of Marx and Engels, and the notion of independent working-class initiative.14 Although this perspective differentiated Red Action clearly from the older Bolshevik and Trotskyist positions, there was also a clear demarcation line with forms of anarchism too. The anarchist assumption that all forms of authority are potentially autocratic, and therefore need to be resisted, did not cut much ice in Red Action circles. Despite its legitimate ideological heritage and its desire to remain untainted by compromises, anarchism contained

Not one Commissioning Editor went for it. 221 222 The documentary diaries The second proposal dealt with the history of anarchism, an often violent movement, that had raised its head very frequently in Europe and the USA in the last century and a half. It was a film that I thought would be particularly attractive to the Spaniards, given the central place of the anarchist moment in the Spanish Civil War. The reaction of the commissioning editors

A Felasophy of Kalakuta Republic and African Citizenship

Lebanese, snatching the helmet of a rude policeman, and commissioning a driver to cruise around town with a Mercedes-Benz fixed with a carriage to transport fuel in order to trivialise a symbol of societal elitism. This interventionist stance is often achieved in Fela’s lyrical discourse as the troubadour and quester for truth. It usually comes off as “me Fela I challenge”, as we find in his 1985 album, Army Arrangement . Having frequently succeeded in a lumpen mode of advocacy, Fela elevated the form into a theory of living. Anarchism

2 The Manifesto of the Sixteen: Kropotkin’s rejection of anti-war anarchism and his critique of the politics of peace Peter Ryley I consider that the duty of everyone who cherishes the idea of human progress altogether, and especially those that were inscribed by the European proletarians on the banner of the International Workingmen’s Association, is to do everything in one’s power, according to one’s capacities, to crush down the invasion of the Germans into Western Europe.1 With these words, published in Freedom, Peter Kropotkin launched a provocative

critical engagement with the discourses of the Enlightenment and an ongoing questioning of its universal assumptions, rather than a specific period in history. This ‘paradigm’ of postmodernity has had an enormous impact on radical political theory. For the past two hundred or so years, radical political thought – from socialism to anarchism – has been founded on the epistemological and normative discourses of the Enlightenment, discourses which are now being questioned. From the utopian societies dreamt up by the early socialists like Saint-Simon and Fourier, to the
