This week’s show features a conversation with Dr. Benjamin Noys, editor of a new book entitled “Communisation and its Discontents”. Communisation theory evolved out of post-68 ultra-left communism and today is being explored and promoted by authors and journals like Riff-Raff, Theorie Communiste, End Notes, Sic and Tiqqun. This show is a short introduction to the theories and plays with the problematics of communisation including gender, terminology, identity, and activity.

Get Healthy for the General Strike

from http://www.ashevillefm.org/the-final-straw/04/2012/get-healthy-for-the-general-strike :

For this week’s show I’ve put together a workout mix which I’ll present without interruption so that it can be played back with ease. As the May 1st General Strike approaches it’s important that those of us participating get into good shape, or keep ourselves toned. I hope that this mix will inspire you to make your own mix and to, if you are able, go running or biking with friends, start regiments of push ups and pull ups, spar, and get mentally and physically prepared for a struggle in the streets if necessary. For a copy of the playlist, check out www.ashevillefm.org/the-final-straw and look for the playlist for April 1st. Enjoy!

Tyrannicide Day 2012!

from http://www.ashevillefm.org/the-final-straw/03/2012/tyrannicide-day-2012

This week’s show is dedicated to Tyrannicide. As discussed at the end of last week’s show, the ides of march approacheth. this date is celebrated as the date of the assasination of the tyrant, Julius Caesar. It also approximates the date of the assasination by the Nihilist group Narodnaya Volya, or people’s will of Czar Alexander the second of Russia, albeit after 7 attempts. We celebrate today
the equalling of the playing field, those who strove to be actors on the stage of history, lone wolfs if you will. I will say of the theme of today’s show that whether or not the Attentat, or propaganda of the deed, actually creates the change that people expect or desire is debateable. Maybe not. Maybe it just doesn’t. But, then, let’s celebrate those brave and/or crazy individuals who took it upon themselves to roll the dice in the face of authoritarianism and make at least one foul tyrant suffer.

FBI raids of Almighty Latin Kings & Queens Nation of NC (12/11/2011)

from http://www.ashevillefm.org/the-final-straw/12/2011/fbi-raids-of-almighty-latin-kings-queens-nation-of-nc

This weeks interview is with Sara Lee of the Greensboro support group for Almighty Latin Kings and Queens Nation in North Carolina. During the hour, Sara Lee talks about the history of the ALKQ Nation and it’s development in North Carolina, including being fundamental to the drawing together of Crips, Bloods, MS13 and community and faith groups in Greensboro in 2008 to draft a gang truce and common statement of the necessity for organizations of all stripes to focus on community enrichment and safety. On Tuesday of last week (December 6th) at 8AM, an elite FBI SWAT team, the ATF & the Greensboro-FBI committed synchronized and violent raids on houses and families allegedly aligned with the ALKQ Nation here in NC, rounding up 13 people and harassing their families for 3 to 4 hours.

Anarchists, like Sara Lee, are calling for support for the ALKQN defendants who they’ve worked with on anti-prison struggles here in state.

The defense network is made up of family, friends, allies and anarchist comrades. The arrested current and former members of the ALKQN organization in state are being indicted by a Federal Grand Jury on Racketeering and RICO charges.

More information on the case (as well as a link for donations for legal costs) can be found at http://alkqnsupport.com/

There will be a Noise Protest at the Detention hearings in support of the defendants on Tuesday, December 13th @ 10AM & 2:30PM outside of the L. Preyer Federal Courthouse at 324 West Market St in downtown Greensboro.
