From Destroy Uber

On Saturday night, a mob of people ran through the streets of Seattle, chasing down Uber cabs and detaining them amidst traffic.  Ten cars were detained and fliers were distributed to the drivers and passengers.  Hundreds of people witnessed this act of defiance against one of the most disgusting tech companies in existence.  To learn more about our motivations, read below the pictures

Counterforce Blocks Microsoft Shuttle in Central District

CD-gentrification

From PugetSoundAnarchists.org

This morning around 8AM, near the intersection of Madison and 23rd Ave, a small Counterforce assembled to block another Microsoft shuttle bus in another heavily gentrified Seattle neighborhood. For roughly 30 minutes, people holding banners reading “GENTRIFICATION STOPS HERE” blocked the front and back ends of the bus. Others attempted to distribute flyers to the Microsoft employees boarding the bus, but they were grumpy and only two took them. During the delay in what is probably a boring and uneventful commute every other day, they sat in quiet misery, playing with their smart phones, not even really talking to each other.

On the Seattle Metropolitan Project and its Consequences

From Tides of Flame

Yesterday, I spent 20 minutes watching a crew tear down a brick wall, and I thought of the workers, long since dead, who first built that wall. As much as I love the new, I remain haunted by the old. Just like you. Just like this neighborhood.

On the Anarchist Memes Drama – Or: Why Do Capitalists Want to Be Anarchists?

theywish

Recently, following a series of reported and flagged posts, the popular Facebook page Anarchist Memes was unpublished by Facebook (you can visit their new page here).

The posts which led to the page’s censorship revolved around feminist, trans, and anti-fascist themes, leading a gaggle of so-called “men’s rights activists” and capitalists to report the page for “sexist” and “violent” content.

New York grand jury resistor denied appeal for freedom

JR_InkDrawing-615x4121

From  at The Nation:

In May I wrote about my friend Jerry Koch going to jail. A well-loved New York anarchist, Jerry, 24, was not charged with a crime, but was taken into federal custody for refusing to testify in front of a grand jury — those black boxes of the federal prosecutorial system with a grim history of harassing activists.

From the Committee Against Political Repression:

Portland anarchist Kerry Cunneen has announced their refusal to cooperate with the grand jury investigating the May Day attack on the Nakamura federal courthouse in Seattle. Kerry’s subpoena, which was delivered on December 14th, stated that they were required to appear just 5 days later on the 19th. Their lawyer successfully got the date pushed back until January 3rd, when Kerry declined to even enter the grand jury room. Kerry has stated that they will never under any circumstance cooperate with this or any state in persecuting themselves or others:
