3 Black Panthers & the Last Slave Plantation, narrated by Mumia Abu-Jamal. This DVD tells the story of three members of the Black Panther Party known collectively as the Angola Three, who were politicized through contact with members of the Black Panther Party while incarcerated, and in 1971 formed one of the only recognized prison Panther chapters. Under conditions of segregation, racism, and repression, they organized other prisoners to build a movement for their rights; an astonishing feat given Angola Prison’s history of repression. The focus of 3 Black Panthers and the L. S. P. is on the hidden facts and cover-ups that have surrounded and clouded their cases since the 1970s. In addition, the movie explores the political climate of the 1960s and 70s that produced political prisoners in America, situating the Angola 3 within the political unrest of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements that penetrated the prison walls of America.
DVD 109 minutes

Afro-Punk. Exploring race identity within the punk scene. More than your everyday, Behind the Music or typical “black history month” documentary this film tackles the hard questions, such as issues of loneliness, exile, inter-racial dating and black power. We follow the lives of four people who have dedicated themselves to the punk rock lifestyle. They find themselves in conflicting situations, living the dual life of a person of color in a mostly white community. The style of the documentary inter-cuts interviews from scores of black punk rockers from all over the nation with scenes from our four protagonists’ lives. They come from different regions, generations, genders, and sexual preferences but their stories are amazingly similar. Afro-Punk features performances by Bad Brains, Tamar Kali, Cipher, and Ten Grand. It also contains exclusive interviews by members of Fishbone, 247- spyz, Dead Kennedys, Candiria, Orange 9mm and TV on the Radio to name a few. Bonus features include deleted scenes, additional interviews, a 15-minute interview with the director, and more live performances. In English, with Spanish and French subtitles.

Anarchism in America. Two fascinating documentaries, both the work of Emmy and Guggenheim Award-winning filmmakers, Steven Fischler and Joel Sucher. In the first, Anarchism in America, the two take a road trip to map anarchism as a distinctly American tradition, interviewing a diverse cast of characters: from “ordinary” truckers and farmers to famous anarchists like Kenneth Rexroth, Ursula LeGuin, and Murray Bookchin. The second, Free Voice of Labor, traces the history of the Yiddish anarchist newspaper of that name — publishing its final issue after 87 years — as told by its now elderly, but decidedly unbowed staff. Also included is first hand accounts of the labor organizing, propaganda, educational experiments, and monumental contributions from these cherished, if largely unsung, heroes of the American anarchist movement.

Born in Flames. Set in America ten years after the Second American Revolution, Born in Flames is a sci-fi fantasy of armed female rebellion. As much as anything else this is an artefact of the 1980s, when anarcha-feminist director Lizzie Borden shot the film, giving a glimpse of what people were thinking of, and also of what they weren’t thinking.  More than twenty years later, parts of Borden’s fantasy are still worth dreaming about...

Engendering Colonialism: The Effect of 100 Years of U.S. Colonialism on Women in Hawai’i, Puerto Rico, Cuba and the Philippines. An educational history created by the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee. We live in a world where both old and new forms of U.S. colonialism co-exist, and both depend on the exploitation of women. Locating the origins of U.S. colonialism in the theft of Native American lands by European settlers and the conquest of northern Mexico in 1848, it goes on to examine the effect on U.S. expansionism on women, and how women are resisting the effects of colonialism.

Grito Subterraneo El Video: 19 Bandas en escena y la Realidad de los 80’s en el Peru. Spanish language without subtitles, this DVD documents the underground music scene in Peru (mainly but not only punk) in the mid-1980s. This was a time when both Sendero Luminoso and the MRTA were engaged in increasingly heavy confrontations with the State, which responded by unleashing greater and greater levels of repression on the oppressed.The music of that era was intense, fierce, political, and highly original. GRITO gathers concert footage of legendary acts like VOZ PROPIA, NARCOSIS, MARIA TETA, as well as lesser known but equally outstanding groups like SINKURA, FLEMA, and LUXURIA. Included is news footage documenting the mainstream response to the growing counter-cultural “antics” happening in bars, parks and concert halls all over Lima.

 The Jena 6: Narrated by Mumia Abu-Jamal. In a small town in Louisiana, six families are fighting for their sons’ lives. Two nooses are left as a warning to Black students trying to integrate their playground, fights break out across town, a white man pulls a shotgun on black students, someone burns down most of the school, the DA puts six black students on trial for attempted murder, and the quiet town of Jena becomes the site of the largest civil rights demonstration in the South since the 1960s. The Jena 6 is the story of hidden racial inequality and violence becoming visible. It is a powerful symbol for, and example of, how racial justice works in America — where the lynching noose has been replaced by the DA’s pen.

Legacy of Torture. In 2005 several former members of the Black Panther Party - Hank Jones, Ray Boudreaux, John Bowman, Harold Taylor, and Richard Brown - were held in contempt and jailed for refusing to testify before a San Francisco Grand Jury investigating a police shooting that took place in 1971. They were released when the Grand Jury term expired, but have been told by prosecutors that “it isn’t over yet.” This DVD provides the background to this case, including details of torture at the hands of the FBI in 1973 when the shooting was first investigated, and the ongoing struggle against repression.
Since this DVD was produced in late 2006, many of the men as well as other activists from the Black Liberation Movement have been arrested and charged with the 1971 shooting - known as the San Francisco 8, you can learn more about this case online at http://www.cdhrsupport.org

Accompanying the Newsreel films is a massive quantity of rare and exclusive materials culled from Roz Payne’s extensive collection of FBI documents, correspondence, and interviews with Black Panthers and their supporters.

Caliban and the Witch; Women, the Body, and Primitive Accumulation, by Silvia Federici. This is the book that pushed me to start carying stuff from Autonomedia. The origins of capitalism and patriarchy, not as “necessary stages” or “progressive” developments, but as counter-revolutionary cancers fomented centuries ago by Europe’s feudal ruling class to neutralize the struggles of the oppressed. A very thought-provoking read that deals with some very important, and much-neglected, questions.

Can’t Jail the Spirit: Political Prisoners in the U.S., a collection of biogaphies. This is the most recent edition of this book, published in 2002. It contains the (auto-)biographies of fifty one different political prisoners and prisoners of war held by the united states, with separate articles explaining the specific contexts around the movements from which these individuals have come. This edition includes a tribute to the longtime political prisoner advocate the Reverend Seiichi Michael Yasutake, who passed away in 2001, and an introductory essay by Owusu Yaki Yakubu, “Toward Collective Effort and Common Vision: The International and Domestic Contexts of the Struggles of Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War Held in the U.S.” Can’t Jail the Spirit remains an important activist resource, as well as a useful reference for those working around political imprisonment and repression in the united states. A few of the prisoners listed have since been released, and tragically Richard Williams died in 2005. Yet - also sadly - the vast majority of those included in this edition are still behind bars today.

Daring to Struggle, Failing to Win: the Red Army Faction’s 1977 Campaign of Desperation, by André Moncourt and J. Smith. In 1970 a small group of West German revolutionaries decided to go underground, to set up safehouses, and learn the skills of the urban guerilla. They were the Red Army Faction. Seven years later, almost all of the original combatants were in prison or dead, yet, through their example, they had inspired a militant and illegal support movement, comrades willing to take up arms in defense of the prisoners. 1977 was to be a year of reckoning. Through daring attacks and devastating errors, the West German guerilla brought their society to the brink, mounting one of the most desperate and incredible campaigns of asymmetrical warfare ever waged in postwar Europe. That they failed is no excuse to not learn their story, to see who they were and what they fought for – and, most tragically, to bear witness to the lengths the state would go to silence them, to make sure no one would ever again make such an attempt to free the prisoners. Later this year Kersplebedeb and PM Press will be publishing the first volume in a documentary history of the RAF, but in the meantime this pamphlet is a modest introduction to this story.

Dreamer of the Day; Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International, by Kevin Coogan. This is a great book, if you’re really interested in the nitty gritty details and nuances of postwar fascist intellectuals and schools of thought. An unusual and fascinating read, chapters are very short, often semi-anecdotal, and could almost stand alone, their point of connection being Francis Parker Yockey, a deranged man who became, after his suicide, something of a theoretical guru for some of the more innovative sections of the far right. Know your enemy!

Night-Vision: Illuminating War and Class on the Neo-Colonial Terrain, by Butch Lee and Red Rover. The authors look at colonialism and the anti-colonial revolutions, showing how the resulting neo-colonialism and what we call “globalization” represent a deadly new stage of capitalism. Drawing on the best elements of anti-colonial and feminist theory, this book sketches the outlines of the new revolutionary theory we need to be developing. Unfortunately I have noticed that many people take a look at the title and decide that this is one of those boring academic books. Nothing could be further from the truth: this is kick-ass feminism as good as it gets!

Outlaws of America; The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity, by Dan Berger. The best book devoted to the Weather Underground so far. Berger is both sympathetic and critical of Weather, but from a left-wing perspective. Unlike other authors who have tackled this subject, Berger is not interested in whining about Weather’s adopting armed struggle against the United States government, but rather takes them to task for not always living up to their own standards, specifically in regards to ani-racism and anti-sexism. An excellent book.

People’s War... Women’s War? two texts by Comrade Parvati of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) with commentary by Butch Lee. A look at women’s role in the Nepalese Revolution, and the relationship of women to Maoism and revolution in general. The two main texts are reprints of essays by Comrade Parvati, one of the few women in the central committee of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). In her interview with People’s March, and her essay “The Question of Women’s Leadership in People’s War in Nepal,” Parvati is refreshingly critical and honest in her appraisal of the role of women in the CPN(M)’s peasant guerilla army, drawing conclusions regarding the connections between patriarchy and the defeat and degeneration of past communist revolutions, and the centrality of women to any successful revolution. Commenting on these texts, North American Amazon theorist Butch Lee examines the mixed record of Marxism-Leninism and Maoism in regards to women’s liberation, the role of women in armed struggle, and the role of armed struggle in winning and defending freedom and autonomy for women and children.

Possibilities: Essays on Hierarchy, Rebellion, and Desire, by David Graeber. In this collection, David Graeber revisits questions raised in his previous book, Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology. Employing an unpretentious style to convey complex ideas, these twelve essays cover a lot of ground: the origins of capitalism, the history of European table manners, love potions and gender in rural Madagascar, the phenomenology of giant puppets at street protests, and much more. But they’re linked by a clear purpose: to explore the nature of social power and the forms that resistance to it have taken—or might take in the future.

The Price of Fire: Resource Wars and Social Movements in Bolivia, by Benjamin Dangl.  New social movements have emerged in Bolivia over access to basic elements of survival like water, gas, land, coca, and employment. Though these movements helped pave the way to the presidency for Evo Morales in 2005, they have made it clear that their fight for self-determination doesn’t end at the ballot box. From the first moments of Spanish colonization to today’s headlines, this book offers a gripping account of clashes in Bolivia between corporate and people’s power, contextualizing them regionally, culturally, and historically.

The Radical Roots of Divers/Cité, by Sketchy Thoughts. In 1990 police attacked the Sexgarage party in Montreal’s warehouse district. In retrospect, the subsequent political mobilization looks like the “coming out” of queer politics in Montreal, and as such is commemorated every year in that city’s LGBTA march, “Divers/Cité”. This short pamphlet looks at the context and previous political mobilizations which laid the basis for people feeling empowered to fight back against police violence - the Mohawk Nation’s conflict with the Canadian state, the AIDS activist movement, and previous responses to homophobic violence in Montreal.

The Road Ahead and the Dialectics of Change, by C. Lundrum. The rather long subtitle of this short pamphlet reads: “applying the science of dialectical and historical materialism to the prison construct as it exists within the California prison system today.” And that is just what this is: an attempt by a California prisoner to analyze the continuing deterioration in prison conditions and the possibilities of resistance, using the tools of dialectical materialism in the spirit of Mao. (Though for you anarchists who are wincing, i should point out that this aspect of Maoism has nothing inherently unanarchistic about it.) With an introduction by former political prisoner Ed Mead.

“Strike One to Educate One Hundred” – the rise of the Red Brigades in Italy in the 1960s & 1970s, by Chris  Aronson Beck, Reggie Emiliana, Lee Morris and Ollie Patterson. Long out of print, this photocopied book is a sympathetic appraisal of the marxist-leninist Red Brigades. Its main shortcoming is that the authors do not deal with the more convoluted and less inspiring part of the Brigades’ history after the kidnapping and killing of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978. Nevertheless, a very good read which could serve as an example as to how this kind of subject matter can be dealt with.

A welcome examination of the European autonomist left, especially in its strongest centers in (West) Germany and Italy.

A movement (or movements) from which we can all draw inspiration – and learn lessons!
