Q: “You threw paving stones at [the cops]?” A: “Oh yeah. I had no problem doing that. And I threw marbles as well that we stole from stores. And towards the end we even managed to steal tractors from construction sites and we knocked over trees with them.” The mass protests that shook France in May 1968 were exciting, dangerous, creative, and influential, changing European politics to this day. Students demonstrated, workers went on general strike, and factories and universities were occupied. Before it was all over, children, homemakers, and the elderly were swept up in the life-changing events that targeted bureaucratic capitalism and the staid Communist Party. The French state was on the ropes and feared civil war or revolution. Decades later, here are the eye-opening oral testimonies of those young rebels who demanded the impossible. Published on the 50th anniversary of those momentous events, May Made Me presents the legacy of the uprising: how those explosive experiences changed both the individual and history. “These powerful and moving testimonies create an eye-opening account of the inspiring events of May ’68, which are more relevant for today’s activists than ever before.” —Paul Mason, author of Postcapitalism: A Guide to Our Future

Author: Mitchell Abidor
The Paris Commune of 1871, the first instance of a working-class seizure of power, has been subject to countless interpretations; reviled by its enemies as a murderous bacchanalia of the unwashed while praised by supporters as an exemplar of proletarian anarchism in action. Only those who were present in the spring of 1871 and who lived through and participated in the Commune have contributed to this volume, leading to a more balanced view. Collects newspaper cuttings from Le Cri du Peuple, the communes official newspaper.

Author: Daniel Guerin
Daniel Guérin addressed himself to younger people "alienated from ideologies and 'isms' shorn of any meaning by an earlier generation" and particularly from "socialism, which has so often been betrayed by those who claimed to speak in its name, and which now provokes an understandable scepticism." In this collection of essays, written between the 1950s and 1980s and published here for the first time in English, Guérin not only provides a critique of the socialist and communist parties of his day, he analyzes some of the most fundamental and pressing questions with which all radicals must engage. He does this by revisiting and drawing lessons from the history of the movement from the French revolution, through the conflicts between anarchists and Marxists, to the social revolution of 1968. These are not just abstract theoretical reflections, but are informed by the experiences of a lifetime of revolutionary commitments.

The Permanent Guillotine is an anthology of figures who expressed the will and wishes of this nascent revolutionary class, in all its rage, directness, and contradictoriness.

The nuclear deterrent had failed While Britain had an arsenal of terrifying weapons that it dared not use, the other side only needed to use theirs once. When a Russian Scragg missile hit Bristol, Britain knew it was all over. There were some people who accepted the armistice and occupying forces without opposition, believing they were working for a better society. But for the others, the Resistance, there was never been any question of compromise.

As Revelation 13:1 foresaw the beast of beasts was foreseen rising up from the polluted sea of some very dirty politics.
Author: Daniel Owsley
As Revelation 13:1 foresaw the beast of beasts was foreseen rising up from the polluted sea of some very dirty politics. And from out of that cesspool of some pretty tall tales that Antichrist was also fated to quickly rise while getting down to the business of some more holocausts he would greatly prize. But that son of sleaze would also soon cause our beaten down world to flicker like a Roman candle in the strongest of winds; Nor was our globe destined to continue to burn with his good graces since he was a very bad man that would bring W.W. 3 to it's ugly peak. It was also fated that this son of death would then see our planet's fiery end bring forth the start of his very own kingdom set aflame; Neither would that prince of war ever surrender to any real lasting peace. For that son of Satan knew he would never spare anyone from having to worship him. As a result, it was written in the molten lava bubbles of the lake of fire that he would someday wear ten royal crowns while he gloried in seeing that majestic gold in his most evil hair. And untold frowns would many sad people bear; For Darius was soon to become like a peeved off grisly that was woke early from his very long sleep. It was additionally a sure thing that in that day of his great agitation, that the rolling waves of unleashed nuclear firepower would be ready to obey his every command that was vainly uttered by his most demanding voice. But it would also be through that evil mouth alone, that a blown kiss of perpetual death would swiftly be sent towards many holy and unholy men alike. And at the end of that bloody hour of the very worse evil power, that son of dismay foolishly came to believe that he could survive anything that God threw his way. Nor would that vile leader ever see his pride going before his fall into a place of no return.
That force without which the Savages would never surrender their leisure , that
force which destroys society insofar as it is primitive society , is the power to
compel ; it is the power of coercion ; it is political power ... For man in primitive
