From The Bail/Legal Support for Alex Wepay site:
On New Year’s Eve, our friend Alex C-G was violently arrested at a noise demonstration in solidarity with prisoners at Cook County Jail. Alex will have a bond hearing on New Years Day @ 11am @ 26th and California, and we intend to bond them out as quickly as possible.
Alex is active in Palestine solidarity work through Punks Against Apartheid, has worked with youth in Chicago, and has supported past solidarity actions for prisoners.
All money raised will go directly to bailing Alex out and to any legal expenses incurred. We know that Cook County Jail is a horrific place to spend New Years, and we want to free Alex as quickly as possible. Thank you for your support!
UPDATE as of 1/1/2013 12pm: We have found that Alex was taken to Maywood last night, which is the HQ of the Cook County Sheriffs Dept. There is no holiday bond court in Maywood, and they were not brought to 26th and California today, so it seems that the earliest bond hearing will be Wed Jan 2nd. An NLG lawyer will try to visit Alex this afternoon and also get more info on what the charges may be and the time and place for the bond hearing. Thank you to all who have donated and spread the word!

As we have reported for over a year, the war in Syria is part of a struggle between the U.S./Nato and Russia/Iran for control of mideast oil and natural gas. As Russia stations hypersonic Islander missiles in Syria to counter U.S./Nato’s Patriot missiles in Turkey on Syria’s border, the major powers move closer to a direct conflict.

Calling us to serve the world of power, militarism, nationalism, patriarchy. --- We posted
countless folders called us from "departments," he handed subpoenas, fines and
prosecutions. --- And again from the beginning ... --- Police, recruits, boards, offices,
registries and other "charitable" foundations of the Greek State reminded us, warned us,
threatened us, condemn us, we charge and our "obligation" to "serve their country."---The
Greek army, one mechanism of death, imposing hierarchy and invites us to thorny arms. ---
Be trained in how to kill and how to die 'glorious', not of course for our own needs and
values, but those of the "top." We thank them for us not exonerated from antisocial and
murderous plans, but we refuse! ---- We refuse ...---- ... Prison camps, personalization,
fear, silence and militarism. We refuse to enlist in the Greek army in any post.
If there is one thing that has marked the libertarian tradition, at least in the classical
sense, it has been the focus on transformative organizing. This may simply appear as
rhetoric to some people, and in many cases it is. The phraseology is often employed
simply to celebrate tactics that are cartoonish or illogical, while at the same time
allowing people to decry more traditional tactics as “too reformist.” This loses the
fundamental nature of the term and its roots in direct action. As part of the anarchist
dictionary, direct action can act as a type of dogma for many people in movements. Its
use is for its own sake, as if this is the foundation of transformation both for the
individuals and the community. This misses the context for how to approach tactics and
what will make them truly transformative.
As part of our housing campaign, we work directly with, and in support of, the Take Back
the Land Rochester movement. Using direct action, Take Back the Land both supports people
defending their homes against unjust foreclosures and evictions as well as supports the
liberation of empty, bank-owned homes so that homeless families can live there. Here is a
story of of one liberation supported by Take Back the Land Rochester, and it can serve as
a model for continued housing liberations throughout our city.

Werner Bonefeld argues that the prominent role of the state since the financial crisis of 2008 is not a break with 'neoliberalism', because a free market and a strong state require one another.
Whether one refers to it as neoliberal, post-neoliberal, Keynesian, Fordist or post-Fordist, the state’s purpose, which is intrinsic to its bourgeois character, is to ‘govern over the labour force’

Peut-on représenter un conflit idéologique dans un jeu en étant à la fois fidèle sur le
plan historique tout en laissant les coudées franches aux joueurs et joueuses pour
diversifier les parties. C’est ce qu’ont tenté de faire Jason Mathews et Ananda Gupta qui
nous livrent ici l’un des meilleurs jeux traitant de la guerre froide. Grand spécialiste
des wargames, l’éditeur GMT abandonne ses thématiques guerrières pour livrer un jeu de
domination territoriale sans combat. La guerre est même sévèrement punie puisque le
premier joueur qui déclenchera les hostilités conduisant à l’holocauste nucléaire perd
automatiquement la partie. ---- Dans Twilight Struggle, les deux joueurs incarnent l’une
des deux superpuissances de l’époque : États-Unis ou URSS, de 1945 à 1989. L’objectif :
imposer son idéologie et user de tous les moyens pour faire basculer le reste du monde
Can represent an ideological conflict in a game is both historically accurate while
leaving the elbow to players and players to diversify parties. This was attempted to
Ananda Gupta and Jason Matthews who give us here one of the best games dealing with the
Cold War. Wargames specialist, publisher GMT abandon its warlike theme to deliver a set of
territorial domination without a fight. The war severely punished even as the first player
to trigger hostilities leading to nuclear holocaust automatically loses the game. -- In
Twilight Struggle, both players embody one of the two superpowers of the time, the United
States and the USSR, 1945-1989. The goal: to impose its ideology and use all means to
switch the rest of the world in your camp. But even for the two giants, it was not
possible to deal with the whole world all the time.
Ecology CGA ---- Often summarized the ecological question to limited resources. If this
issue is part of the ecology, it can not fully contain, and is even a small part of the
energy issue , which is primarily the result of a social organization (and therefore not
strictly-speaking a issue green ). ---- Resources on Earth are limited, they all
eventually reach a peak after which the extraction will be more difficult, costly, and
ultimately unprofitable. This has already happened for hydrocarbons, which would extract
present in countries that consume despite the serious health and environmental destruction
known and should arrive in about 30 years (at the current rate of consumption) for all
other known resources 1 . The unit capitalist colossus had feet of clay based primarily on
Écologie CGA ---- On résume souvent la question écologique à la limite des ressources. Si
cette question fait partie de l’écologie, elle ne peut pas la contenir entièrement, et ne
constitue même qu’une petite part de la question énergétique qui est avant tout le
résultat d’une organisation sociale (et donc pas stricto-sensu une question écologique).
-- Les ressources sur Terre sont limitées, elles finiront toutes par atteindre un pic
après lequel l’extraction sera plus difficile, coûteuse, et à terme non-rentable. Ce
phénomène est déjà arrivé pour les hydrocarbures, que l’on voudrait extraire à présent
dans les pays qui les consomment malgré les graves destructions environnementales et
sanitaires connues, et devrait arriver dans environ 30 ans (au rythme actuel de
consommation) pour l’ensemble des autres ressources connues1.
Wood by wood, canvas by canvas, community residents are José Nitro over the last few days,
building their homes and their history in a space that is the germ of Occupation
Contestado, consolidated in the early hours of Wednesday (7). ---- The name honors the
occupation of one hundred years of Constestado War, a conflict that occurred in the state
of Santa Catarina in the early 20th century and that, as in our struggle, questioned the
ownership of land and was a manifestation of popular discontent in the face of social
problems. ---- The action is retaliation in the coming hours and days and the Military
Police of Santa Catarina have stayed in place: before 4am this morning, the police came to
intimidate the occupants, but it was not enough to quit.
Madeira por madeira, lona por lona, os moradores da comunidade José Nitro estão, ao longo
dos últimos dias, construindo suas casas e sua história em um espaço que é o germe da
Ocupação Contestado, consolidada na madrugada desta quarta-feira (7). ---- O nome da
ocupação homenageia os cem anos da Guerra do Constestado, conflito que ocorreu no Estado
de Santa Catarina no início do século 20 e que, assim como em nossa luta, questionou a
propriedade das terras e foi manifestação de insatisfação popular diante dos problemas
sociais. ---- A ação deve sofrer retaliações nas próximas horas e dias e a Polícia Militar
de Santa Catarina já esteve no local: antes das 4h desta madrugada, a polícia surgiu para
intimidar os ocupantes, mas não foi o suficiente para desistirmos.
