The poster reads:

‘Those waiting on the wooden bench are the poor, our own people; the strong are the peasants and the proletarians; their every word is a glass of wine a crust of black bread a tree beside the rock a window open to the sunlight.

Come play with me. I will hand my queen over to you. (She was once my loved one now I don’t have a loved one anymore.) I will hand my rooks over to you (now I don’t shoot at my friends anymore they died a long time ago, before I ever did) And this king […]

Can endemics migrate?

Migration poses a high cost in incarceration and mortality exacerbated, inter alia, by outright hunting on the part of opportunistic predators or casual consumers. Migration is most often driven by search of survival resources, but there also exist other reasons why it occurs. Migration has evolved per minority to varying degrees, undertaken by numerous organisms […]

Leftovers

Ten bread rolls four red apples a green apple a banana dozens of sandwiches rolled in aluminum foil

We try to save what can be saved from this crooked world scavenging your garbage cans scavenging your tourist life

Do you need any towels? Do you need any toilet paper? we ask while diving deep into […]

But still, I roll

I carry Anchises on my back

I carry a stone

I come from nowhere

I go to no place

I come in millions

Watching the sad faces losing the ground under my feet

Being alone being nothing

But still, I roll

Freedom pursued with a price on her head

A blue bird invades national territory

The army is mobilized the cobwebs of a submarine get cleaned…

On every corner a warning Kill ’em! Don’t let the blue bird escape ’n’ come clean!

Wow, you are illegal too?

One thing all people have in common: We’re illegal

We crush the grass with our feet, we set fire to the forest, we spit on the ground, we throw garbage onto the streets, we cross the road when the red light is on. We buy contraband cigarettes, we construct houses […]

Plastic World

Freedom was taken for granted advertised on giant screens wrapped in colorful plastic packages and sold as cheap staple good amidst the spectacle of brightly lit glass-palaces where people with RFID chips in their necks were busy to catch it.

Plastic world, inhabited by plastic people with plastic dreams their essence ends up being swimming […]

Greek prisons: Poem of May 1, 2013

He talks in his sleep at night.

Not only is it annoying. The nightly atmosphere in the prison cell gives a mystery dimension to his muttering.

He wakes him up. He tells him: “Brother, you’re talking in your sleep.”

He answers: “I know, brother. At night. The dead visit me […]

Rabies

In these times of woe only the gangs of wild dogs are on their guard

Wearing cowboy boots monocles, redingotes they howl against the death and zero

Four (a poem)

We were born in the blackened metropolis of a society that served us strychnine with baby fruit puree

We breathed cancer in the open air swallowing hypocrisy and delusion feeling the loneliness of urban psychiatric terrain inside our skin

We danced our sorrows onto pedestrian streets filled with grief and reactionism and ran whenever […]

Crete: Video by Candia::Alternativa in solidarity with squats and fighters

Perhaps the day is approaching when flags will be waving to the rhythm of the wind when the wind will whistle to the liberation’s beat.

Perhaps the day is approaching when we’ll smell the ashes of all the peoples’ prison cells.

And as soon as time reads zero, it will be the time for […]

Greece: Short poem by imprisoned anarchist communist Tasos Theofilou

23.10.2012

Someday all this will be finished and we’re going to say at least we tried. We have neither been brought to life unfairly nor become a burden to the Earth unjustly. We left something behind.

And we’ll have wrinkles on our faces each wrinkle will be a deep cut for every moment of […]

Therefore, Tortuga is no longer under house arrest, but will be under the supervision of […]

[$hile] Everything and Nothing (to chaos and love)

-anarchy is the poetry-

The unexpected encounter Violent winds blowing Surprise by assault of sensations setting fire to the interior The muscles, the bones, our heads pouring out yearnings Trying out moments, a concrete instant The fugitive glances Say nothing I already know everything Suddenly a chaos that reveals a crystal clear […]
