Anonymous asked: Tumblr is owned by Yahoo!, a company that has turned over information to help the Chinese government convict dissidents on more than one occasion and most recently cooperated with the NSA's PRISM program. Hypocrites.

We’re gonna have this sweet backpatch at the Seattle Anarchist Book Fair. Also available in hot pink.
"I die happy on the gallows, so confident am I that the hundreds and thousands to whom I have spoken will remember my words. When you shall have hanged us, then they will do the bombthrowing! In this hope do I say to you, I despise you, I despise your order, your laws, your force propped authority. Hang me for it!"
The terrain of social control is shifting. Every day the agents of social control become more dispersed. The surveillance state is not limited to the police, the FBI, the CCTV cameras on every corner. For anarchists and other criminally-minded people in general, media representatives are obstacles that stand in the way of our illicit desires.
The media represents more than the big corporations by which they are owned. The media is an integral pillar of capitalist democracy, and whether intentionally or not, acts as an agent of the state surveillance apparatus.
When some media pig documents illegal activity and then that documentation is used as evidence in a prosecution we must recognize this for what it is: snitching, or worse yet, plain and simple police work. This pamphlet contains a series of texts and communiqués from different places and times which shed light on the nature of the threat posed to us by the media, as well as a few ideas for how anarchists might respond to this threat.
