Hey everyone, fellow anarchist. I just wanted to take a moment to celebrate:

  • Protestors all around the north stopped Israel help, thefore helping Palestines.
  • EZLN dynamism to adapt to ever-changing situations and a great sense of humor.
  • Protests Against Cop City in Atlanta helps counter-act authoritarianism in a country that historically has been the empire.
  • AANES/Rojava territories exist and keep on giving a great fight against all odds.
  • The Myanmar resistance against their fascist opponent where the alliance is giving them a run for their money.

I share this mostly because I'm are coming out of a very upsetting situation that I'm sure many people share.

To share the feeling that the world and our friends Solarpunks are imagining is being made in the middle of gardens where bullets fly like mosquitoes in the jungle. Too many. And it is always in our hands to take the necessary actions to put the seeds of empathy and international solidarity. To combat bigotry and hate speech while giving hope to those around us.

We are not saviors, not at all. People can only save themselves, and it is that friendly hand, the shoulder where you can cry, and the compañerxs you can trust who push and guide us to see in this significant penumbra.

So, l want to celebrate that you guys exist. You artists who imagine the future; you freedom-fighters; you who choose to identify as or decided to love a man, woman, or non-binary people; you workers who share their know-how; you parents who care for the future; you from the global south or north; you from whatever skin color you were born with: I celebrate you, and I applaud your work so far.

Let me know of any progress I may have missed in my message of individuals striving for autonomy and acknowledgment so that we can celebrate their achievements even more.

I hope you all have a great day, and remember that, at least from this geography of South America, at least one capybara is celebrating you.

Edit: made a writing mistake that sounded like I didn't support Free Palestine. Suffered a small heart-attack after reading it.

Anarchism

Anarchism is a social and political theory and practice that works for a free society without domination and hierarchy.

Social Ecology

Social Ecology, developed from green anarchism, is the idea that our ecological problems have their ultimate roots in our social problems. This is because the domination of nature and our ecology by humanity has its ultimate roots in the domination humanity by humans. Therefore, the solutions to our ecological problems are found by addressing our social and ecological problems simultaneously.

Quotes

Poetry and imagination must be integrated with science and technology, for we have evolved beyond an innocence that can be nourished exclusively by myths and dreams.

~ Murray Bookchin, The Ecology of Freedom

People want to treat ‘we’ll figure it out by working to get there’ as some sort of rhetorical evasion instead of being a fundamental expression of trust in the power of conscious collective effort.

~Anonymous, but quoted by Mariame Kaba, We Do This 'Til We Free Us

The end justifies the means. But what if there never is an end? All we have is means.

~Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven

The assumption that what currently exists must necessarily exist is the acid that corrodes all visionary thinking.

~Murray Bookchin, "A Politics for the Twenty-First Century"

There can be no separation of the revolutionary process from the revolutionary goal. A society based on self-administration must be achieved by means of self-administration.

~Murray Bookchin, Post Scarcity Anarchism

In modern times humans have become a wolf not only to humans, but to all nature.

~Abdullah Öcalan

The ecological question is fundamentally solved as the system is repressed and a socialist social system develops. That does not mean you cannot do something for the environment right away. On the contrary, it is necessary to combine the fight for the environment with the struggle for a general social revolution...

~Abdullah Öcalan

Social ecology advances a message that calls not only for a society free of hierarchy and hierarchical sensibilities, but for an ethics that places humanity in the natural world as an agent for rendering evolution social and natural fully self-conscious.

~ Murray Bookchin
