A report from the Vaughn 17 Support website about the collapse of the state's attempts to prosecute inmates who were allegedly involved in an uprising at the start of 2017.

Despite having almost all been found not guilty or had their charges dropped, the state is continuing to punish ten of the defendants... who are now in Pennsylvania, where they are being held on lockdown indefinitely... on vague and questionable grounds.

A text on the violence used by the Sudanese state against the revolutionary movement, showing the connections between Sudan and other states including the EU's border policy. Translated and adapted by Crimethinc from the original at the Sudanese-French project Sudfa. Content note for extreme violence including rape and murder.

All around the world today, we see the same three-way conflicts... In North Africa and the Middle East, this often manifests as a struggle between dictators like Bashar al-Assad and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, militant Islamist groups, and social movements seeking democracy and egalitarianism.

As rents become unaffordable and property ownership becomes a luxury, tiny houses are being advocated as a way of addressing the housing crisis both here in Aotearoa and elsewhere.

What type of housing we live in should not be dictated by bureaucratic whims of local or central governments and those who serve them. Pink Panther

Workers go on strike due to unsafe working conditions. The State responds with a heavy police presence finally sending in the riot cops. This article is compiled from reports first published by the Anarchist Communist Group and Freedom News.

The State’s purpose, and thus the police’s, is to control us. To ensure that capitalism continues to function unhindered and protect the interests of the ruling class… The cops aren’t your friend and neither is your boss. We only have each other. North East Anarchist Group

This article is a personal analysis of the Yellow Vests movement in France, written by Morgan, a French Anarchist currently living in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

"...even though this movement has a lot of problems and things that need to be addressed it is still the most encouraging thing to appear in a long time ; an autonomous, working class, social movement." Morgan

Dmitry Pchelintsev, one of the defendants in the "network case" in Russia, has given testimony in court about how he was tortured

They took a dynamo out of a bag and put it on the table. All the agents were wearing balaclavas and medical gloves. They strapped my hands behind my back, I was only in my underpants, they strapped my legs to the bench with tape. Dmitry Pchelintsev, a defendant in the "network" case

Havana, Cuba – Following tensions around the cancellation of the state sponsored LGBT march and the effort by activists to call for an independently organized one, two anarchist and LGBT activists, Isbel Diaz Torres and partner Jimmy Roque Martinez, are believed to have been detained by Cuban authorities. The detentions are seen as an attempt by the Cuban state to suppress and intimidate outspoken activists whom they see as leaders and vocal activists in the LGBT community in Cuba. This story was first posted by Black Rose Anarchist Federation.

On Friday, May 3 Torres received an interview summons by the National Revolutionary Police where authorities attempted to pressure him to not participate or publicly support for calls being made to hold an non-state sanctioned march. He was also accused of being “counter-revolutionary.” Black Rose Anarchist Federation

From the management of June 2013 uprising to Bolsonaro’s ordered revolt.
