Topic of the week – As 2021 comes to a close, let’s take a look back at the ongoing social upheavals worldwide, inspiring anarchist actions, and the multimedia that have kept you up all night. 2021, a year in review and the year ahead.
What have been your favorite anarchist actions, communiques, projects (new and old), and events (IRL & AFK) from this past year? On the opposite end, is there a specific anarchist critique of things that stands out or a list of embarrassments for the anarchist milieu? What anarchist spaces are you looking forward to in the new year?
What have been the most intriguing anarchist (or not) texts, books, videos, music, and other multimedia? Why? At risk of creating a comment thread of lonely YouTube links, add some information and perhaps a little sentiment to help readers understand the importance to you.
We’d also like to remember some of the many anarchist friends that have passed this year: Bell Hooks, Lina Wertmüller, Dan Georgakas, Jacinto Barrera Bassols, Will Davis, Pietro Ferrua, Ian Cameron, Leon Litwack, George-Thérèse Dickenson, Enric (Henri) Melich Gutiérrez, Marc Tomsin, Michael Horovitz, Joan Liébana, Alan Pullin, Sebastian “Sabi” Senakiewicz, Arthur J. Miller, Jack Terricloth, Nelson Méndez, Dave Cunliffe, Sante Notarnicola, Hanneke Willemse, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ken Weller, and Tobi.
