Fight for the City!

A new pamphlet by London Anarchist Communist Group, Fight For The City.

Britain and other western countries have seen a massive increase in the cost of housing, increases in evictions and homelessness, whole council estates torn down and sold off to private developers, overcrowding in squalid accommodation, city centres privatised and transformed into sanitised shopping malls, business centres and tourist destinations, attacks on the poor – cuts in benefit, the bedroom tax, low wages, fewer green and open spaces and more sky scrapers, increased pollution, police violence, and increased surveillance.

This pamphlet covers all issues related to the city as a site of class struggle, housing, gentrification , social cleansing, privatisation of space, the general takeover of the city by corporate interests, crackdowns on social movements, demonstrations and fightbacks against all this.

The Wilhelmshaven Revolt:
a Chapter of the Revolutionary Movement in the German Navy
1918-1919

by ‘Ikarus’ (Ernst Schneider)

ACG Classic Revolutionary Reprint

In this, the centenary year of the ending of World War 1, the ACG looks at a lesser known moment in revolutionary working class history which took place at that time. The events in Germany during 1918-1919 were arguably an example of our class at its most revolutionary.

Written from the viewpoint of someone involved in those revolutionary events, The Wilhelmshaven Revolt is an inspiring read, particularly in this current period of low class-consciousness and low working class activity. It not only shows us what is possible but what to avoid, namely, trust in reformist politicians and those who seek to act in the name of the working class with statist and Leninist “solutions”.

Illustrated, 43 pages, with a foreword by the ACG, an introduction by Nick Heath and appendices by Joe Thomas, Dave Graham and Mat Kavanagh.

Available from the ACG for £3.75 (post included)

Jackdaw

Free bulletin of the Anarchist Communist Group out now!

Jackdaw is the paper of the Anarchist Communist Group and is intended as a first point of contact to be handed out on the streets, in workplaces, left in social centres, community centres and shops or to be passed on to people new to anarchist communism. It aims to be mainly, agitational in tone, but with occasional longer, more in-depth articles.

Why Jackdaw? Looking for a name that was not the usual, we settled upon Jackdaw because of the characteristics often associated with this bird, characteristics which are an important part of a revolutionary anarchist movement for a new society: resilience and a fighting spirit, as well as being social and co-operative. ‘Jack’ means ‘rogue’ and ‘daw’ means ‘call.’ We are rogues in the current society and our paper aims to call for a working class revolution and the creation of an anarchist communist society.

The Dossier of Subject No. 1218: A Bulgarian Anarchist’s Story
by Alexander Nakov


ALEXANDER NAKOV, BORN 1919: “SECONDARY EDUCATION IN FASCIST PRISONS… HIGHER EDUCATION IN BOLSHEVIK PRISONS”

Of the few who managed to survive the horrors of Bulgaria’s Stalinist concentration camps, Alexander Nakov is possibly the most representative of the older generation of active and committed anarchists.

Initially reluctant to write his memoirs, Alexander was eventually persuaded by friends that his story needed to be told. And by telling that story, he now remains a vital link between the anarchist militants of the past and the youth of today.

In clear and concise prose, Alexander details his youthful activity, his subsequent imprisonment and his fierce resistance to an inhuman system.

As well as his memoirs, this book also contains official government and state security documents about the author – documents that give yet another insight into the anarchist Alexander Nakov, targeted by the “People’s State” and classified as “Subject No.1218.”

Translated from the Bulgarian original by Mariya Radeva, edited by Rob Blow, foreword by Nick Heath.
