“Nothing unified & revolutionary will be formed until each section of the exploited will have made its own autonomous power felt.”
"There are no constraints left to halt America’s slide into a totalitarian capitalism. Electoral politics are a sham. The media have been debased and defanged by corporate owners. The working class has been impoverished and is now being plunged into profound despair. The legal system has been corrupted to serve corporate interests. Popular institutions, from labor unions to political parties, have been destroyed or emasculated by corporate power. read more »

A call for the creation of a new international association of situationist revolutionaries, as one response to a very dismal world.
by Michael Parenti
(excerpted from the book, Democracy for the Few)
This zine covers an obscure but phenomenal story of coal miners' and convicts' joint rebellion against the convict leasing system in post-Civil War Tennessee. Touching on the issues of prison growth, racial identities in the south, the limitations of demand-oriented movements, and the application of contemporary insurrectionary perspectives in understanding historical phenomena, it is "required reading" for anyone interested in appalachian social movements, insurrection, or historical positioning of the southern white worker. Brought to you by the North Carolina Piece Corps. read more »

When Guy Debord of the Situationist International graffitied the slogan “Never Work!” onto the walls of a Parisian street in 1953, he struck a blow in solidarity with the radical current of left communism which locates the wage-labour relation as the central pillar of capitalist relations and therefore the prime locus of attack. It is, of course, a banality that we need to work in order to produce for our basic needs. But what is at question here is the naure of that work, for whom, andto what end? Useful work? Or useless toil?
