Food not Bombs – UK Chapters

Food Not Bombs gathers food that would otherwise be thrown out by shops and uses it to cook vegetarian and vegan meals, which we give out for free on the streets and at events. In doing this, we aim to show how much food is wasted needlessly and to eliminate some of this waste. We oppose the spending of money on weapons in the face of world hunger, an issue that we believe could be solved with suitable logistics.

I’m careful about what I re-upload and do so assuming with most it’s simply content the creator no longer wants front and center of their channel, but wouldn’t mind it being archived elsewhere. I would almost always take down videos if asked, the one exception is whistleblowing bigoted right wing propoganda the creator is trying to cover up.

History of Anarchism among newly emigrated communities to America

.

New book/podcast and older but still well worth a watch documentary:

.

Kenyon Zimmer, “Immigrants Against the State” | New Books in American Studies #87

In Immigrants Against the State: Yiddish and Italian Anarchism in America (University of Illinois, 2015), Kenyon Zimmer, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Texas, Arlington, examines the anarchist movements and ideas of immigrants to the United States from the 1880’s through the 1940’s. Using sources in half a dozen different languages, Zimmer builds an in-depth picture of these movements’ achievements and challenges. This book is a definitive transnational history of working-class immigrant radicalism, which suggests that anarchist ideas are very much still relevant today. —Interviewer Max Kaiser

.

Free Voice of Labour: The Jewish Anarchists

“Free Voice of Labor, traces the history of the Yiddish anarchist newspaper of that name—publishing its final issue after 87 years—as told by its now elderly, but decidedly unbowed staff. Also included is first hand accounts of the labor organizing, propaganda, educational experiments, and monumental contributions from these cherished, if largely unsung, heroes of the American anarchist movement.”—AKPress

“A wonderful evocation of the radical political past and what has become of its activists in their old age. It takes it’s name from the Yiddish anarchist newspaper, which finally died in 1987 at the age of 87. The film is an oral history, given by those who lived through the era. It’s more than merely that, however. It uses clips from old movies, in Yiddish, that dealt with the ugliness of the sweatshop. You hear the Yiddish songs and poems inveighing against oppression and calling for the people to rise up.

But the joy in the film lies in the people who belonged to the movement. They have aged gracefully, with their sentiments unchanged, but with their world different in ways they would never have dreamed of years ago. They speak with humor of demostrations, picket lines, battles of long ago. They speak as Jews, but secular Jews whose visions were of an unbossed universality. They are grandmas and grandpas, as sunny and mellow as any others, but their courage, intelligence and social concern still shines in their faces. They were a movement, mostly nonviolent, unlike the caricature anarchist bomb-thrower, but their families have grown into middle-class America. They no longer fight, but they still think.”—New York Times

The Fox Hunting Debate

.

I grew up veggie in North Wales, so debating with friends who were from farming,  pro-fox hunting families questioning my vegetarianism was part of the reason that pushed me to go vegan when I was 15. Anyway, a fair few of my facebook friends are still farmers, pro-fox hunting and this last two weeks I’ve been in this long debate over the issue. You can tell tensions are high, but have really valued the chance to hear people’s experiences and re-visit this part of my past.

Fox hunting began with groups of farmers going out with their dogs and attempting to kill ‘the problem’ fox that had been daring enough to kill one of their domesticated animal ‘property’ the night before. Soon after it became a sport associated with aristocracy. Artificial dens were built into the land to keep the fox population artificially high. Foxes were even exported to Australia and New Zealend so they could be hunted there.

Today there’s supposed to be a ban in place that outlaws hunting with dogs, but fox hunters simply came up with a new name called trail hunting where they say they’re either chasing a person riding with a strong scented rag or they laid a scent trial the night before that hunters have to find.

What’s sad is those people who are anti-fox hunting duped into defending the purposeful killing of foxes, think they’re defending a harmless pretense, all the while the hunting community can try to claim numbers at these events represent a will to repeal the ban entirely.

2 legitemate options are open to previous fox hunters who want to enjoy the thrill of the chase:

Drag Hunting, a legitimate sport created in the 1800s which was not intended to mimic animal hunting and is done well away from fox habitat. These have their own clubs with courses chosen for their most enjoyable riding, like race car tracks. A well scented drag is pulled along the ground so that there is no chance of the hounds losing their way and riders have to keep up at a good speed.

And:

Clean Boot, or Bloodhound, Hunts are the easiest to distinguish. The clue is in the name. Bloodhounds. A clean boot hunt uses bloodhounds, as opposed to foxhounds, to chase a human quarry. The bloodhounds search for the scent of running people (one or more runners) who will reward them at the end with praise or treats. This type of hunting is also known as “hunting the clean boot”, and it had already been in existence for many years prior to the hunting ban.

‘Populism’ – The Media’s Favorite Catch-All Smear for the Left | The Citations Needed Podcast #42

With the rise of Trump, Sanders, Corbyn and Brexit, hundreds of pundits, reporters, and talking heads have been warning about the problems of “populism” and its alleged attack on democracy over the past three years.

“Populism and immigration pose major threat to global democracy,” the Gates Foundation insists. “The Dangerous Rise of Populism – Global Attacks on Human Rights Values,“ wrote Human Rights Watch in 2017. “Trump’s Rise Proves How Dangerous Populism Is for Democracy” NBC says. “Populism is still a threat to Europe,” The European University Institute tells us.

But what exactly is populism? How is a term that allegedly applies to Hugo Chávez and Bernie Sanders also casually used to describe fascists and far-right forces?

Under the thin, ideology-flattening definition of populism, the term is more often than not used as a euphemism for demagogic cults of personality and fascism and as the ultimate horseshoe theory reduction to lump together movements for equity and justice on the Left with those of revanchism, nationalism and explicit racism on the Right.

New Playlist: Other – Atheism

KANADAJIN3 On Islam

A big YouTuber with over 200,000 subs, converts to Islam and much video responses ensue on the shallow reasons, phenomenon and potential subversive cultural effect. Kanadajin responds in the comments and further response video attempts are made to encourage her to think about what ideology they really are signing up for and promoting. Finally I caught up with them on twitter at the end of all this.

I actually am interested in hearing the case that a benign monotheism attached to pre-existing traditions might have been a force for good in unifying tribes and advancing science, civilisations etc. And that a reformist/abstractionist religious practice can play a part today in helping the disenfranchised find a voice by using fables in their holy book to find solidarity with each other (Saba Mahmood’s Politics of Piety), whereas fundamentalists and neocon war mongering cannot. But I would still only regard Islam as an ideology that was the best of a bad bunch that had traction at the time

The polite face of psychological warfare in mormon chat

An attempt at engaging missionairies on the immorality of a 10% church tax on people on minumum wage or unemployed.

There’s many things I want to help politicize about the mormon church’s antics, from them sending missionairies to the global south, to their online recruitment efforts to convert people going through a dark period in their life.


Missionaries in the Global South

When it comes to the global south, I think we should stop taking a nicely nicely approach to poor indoctrinated missionaries and say you can’t help here, you will only hurt so you’re message is not welcome here, and activists should actively attempt to shut down their proseltysing efforts.

  • 1. “Be thoughtful by not eating too much if food is in short supply.” Not really realistic considering the cultural pressure for all men to go on a mission at 18 without any income for 2 years.
  • 2. Preaching abstinence only in HIV hotspots is evil, there are ‘Jack’ Catholic Nuns advocating condom use in Kenya because they’ve seen how much damage it has done and agree with the scientific consensus, for mormon missionairys to go into communities and preach anything that blocks fertility is from the devil is so so wrong.
  • 3. “Members should obey, honor, and sustain the laws in any country where they reside or travel”“Never suggest that people emigrate to another country, even for work or schooling.” Going to countries where people are escaping persecusion and gaining automatic asylum, sustaining the churchs relationship to that oppressive government over the refugees international rights is evil. How that worked out for the mormon church in Nazi Germany.

Online Missionaries

Facebook and mormon.org chat has become a powerful wing of the church in creating a platform for lonely and vulnerable people to come to them. By each missionary talking to 3-10 people at one time, 24hours a day, it’s not hard to imagine they have better results than walking door to door.

If you ever want to remind yourself the mental jumping jacks orthodox Mormons go through to accept certain scripture or church policy, I find it quite funny, a breif look at r/exmormon shows it’s pretty cathartic for ex-members too depending on how traumatic their departure was.

If we wanted to go further and create a publicity stunt, I’m sure we could organise a communications blockade for a day, by getting many people to log on at one time (using an IP scrambler like Tor to chat multiple times) with a central message, e.g. to stop their preaching of practising healthy sexual desires (masturbation, homosexuality) being from the devil.
