Anarchist Flags: The Symbols of Anarchism

Anarchist Flags | Anarchism SymbolsAnarchists are opposed to hierarchy – any system that favors the few at the expense of the many is opposed by default. But what is the central mode of oppression? Different camps make different claims, and they use different flags to show what it is they see as the means of oppression.

Black Flag | Anarchism

“Liberty! Equality! Solidarity!”

Black Flag | AnarchismWhile a solid white flag is the universal sign of surrender (to opposition), a solid black flag is the universal symbol of resistance (to oppression). “Anarchy” refers to the absence of RULERS – not the absence of RULES. It is NOT a synonym for “chaos” (the absence of order). To emphasize that, some anarchists add the letter “A” (for anarchy) inside an “O” (for order) to the center of their flag: The resulting “Circle-A” Ⓐ represents “order from anarchy” (and other things).

Red & Black Flag | Anarcho-Syndicalism

“Workers of the world unite!”

Red & Black Flag | Anarcho-SyndicalismRed (for socialism) and black (for anarchism) is the flag of anarcho-syndicalism. Anarcho-syndicalists view revolutionary industrial unionism (or syndicalism) as a method for workers in a capitalist society to gain control of an economy and, with that control, influence broader society. They see capitalism as a system of inequality that exploits both human and natural resources.

Green & Black Flag | Eco-Anarchism

“People and planet before profit!”

Green & Black Flag | Eco-AnarchismGreen (for nature) and black (for anarchism) is the flag of eco-anarchism. Eco-anarchists extend anarchist ideology beyond class struggle to include a critique of interactions between humans and the world around them, their goals being not only lasting liberty, equality and solidarity but also long-term environmental sustainability.

Purple & Black Flag | Anarcha-Feminism

“Women’s rights are human rights!”

Purple & Black Flag | Anarcha-FeminismPurple (for feminism) and black (for anarchism) is the flag of anarcha-feminism. Anarcha-feminists view patriarchy and traditional gender roles as a form of involuntary coercion that should be replaced by decentralized free association. They believe the struggle against patriarchy is an essential part of the struggle against the state and capitalism.

Orange & Black Flag | Mutualism

“The land belongs to those who work it!”

Orange & Black Flag | MutualismOrange (a blend of red for socialism and gold for markets) and black (for anarchism) is the flag of mutualism. Mutualists believe producers should possess the means of production, either individually or collectively, and seek a liberated market without capitalism wherein private property is abolished and replaced with occupation-and-use ownership.

Pink & Black Flag | Queer Anarchism

“We’re queer and here to fight fear!”

Pink & Black Flag | Queer AnarchismPink (for LGBTQ) and black (for anarchism) is the flag of queer anarchism. The anarcha-queer advocates anarchism and social revolution as a means of homosexual, bisexual and transsexual liberation and abolition of homophobia, lesbophobia, transmisogyny, biphobia, transphobia, heteronormativity, heterosexism, patriarchy and the gender binary.

White & Black Flag | Anarcho-Pacifism

“Give peace a chance!”

White & Black Flag | Anarcho-PacifismWhite (for pacifism) and black (for anarchism) is the flag of anarcho-pacifism. Anarcho-pacifists reject the use of violence in the struggle for social change and the abolition of the state. They see all governments as institutions with a legal monopoly on violence, and believe resistance must be nonviolent or else nothing will ever truly change.


Abraham Lincoln was a Racist: It’s Time To Rename 667 Schools

Abraham Lincoln was a racist and it is time we renamed the 667 U.S. schools named after him.

Abraham Lincoln was a racist and it is time we renamed the 667 U.S. schools named after him.

“I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races… I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people.”–Abraham Lincoln

“You will never prosper with blacks, and it is abhorrent to a reflecting mind to be supporting and cherishing those who are… I wish them no evil in the world—on the contrary, will do them every good in my power, and know that they are misled by those to whom they have given their confidence.”–Robert E. Lee

If You See Something DO Something: 12 Things To Do Instead Of Calling The Cops

If You See Something DO Something: 12 Things to do Instead of Calling the Cops

Calling the police often escalates situations, puts people at risk, and leads to violence. Anytime you seek help from the police, you’re inviting them into your community and putting people who may already be vulnerable into dangerous situations. Sometimes people feel that calling the police is the only way to deal with problems. But we can build trusted networks of mutual aid that allow us to better handle conflicts ourselves and move toward forms of transformative justice, while keeping police away from our neighborhoods.

  1. Don’t feel obligated to defend property—especially corporate “private” property. Before confronting someone or contacting the police, ask yourself if anyone is being hurt or endangered by property “theft” or damage. If the answer is “no,” then let it be.
  2. If something of yours is stolen and you need to file a report for insurance or other purposes, consider going to the police station instead of bringing cops into your community. You may inadvertently be putting someone in your neighborhood at risk.
  3. If you observe someone exhibiting behavior that seems “odd” to you, don’t assume that they are publicly intoxicated. A traumatic brain injury or a similar medical episode may be occurring. Ask if they are OK, if they have a medical condition, and if they need assistance.
  4. If you see someone pulled over with car trouble, stop and ask if they need help or if you can call a tow truck for them. If the police are introduced to such a situation, they may give punitive and unnecessary tickets to people with car issues, target those without papers, or worse.
  5. Keep a contact list of community resources like suicide hotlines. When police are contacted to “manage” such situations, people with mental illness are sixteen times more likely to be killed by cops than those without mental health challenges.
  6. Check your impulse to call the police on someone you believe looks or is acting “suspicious.” Is their race, gender, ethnicity, class, or housing situation influencing your choice? Such calls can be death sentences for many people.
  7. Encourage teachers, coworkers, and organizers to avoid inviting police into classrooms, workplaces, and public spaces. Instead, create for a culture of taking care of each other and not unwittingly putting people in harm’s way. If you’re part of a group that’s holding a rally or demonstration, don’t get a permit or otherwise cooperate with the police.
  8. If your neighbor is having a party and the noise is bothering you, go over and talk to them. Getting to know your neighbors with community events like monthly block parties is a good way to make asking them to quiet down a little less uncomfortable, or to find another neighbor who is willing to do so.
  9. If you see someone peeing in public, just look away! Remember, for example, that many houseless people do not have reliable access to bathrooms.
  10. Hold and attend deescalation, conflict resolution, first-aid, volunteer medic, and self-defense workshops in your neighborhood, school, workplace, or community organization.
  11. Street art is beautiful! Don’t report graffiti and other street artists. If you see work that includes fascistic or hate speech, paint over it yourself or with friends.
  12. Remember that police can escalate domestic violence situations. You can support friends and neighbors who are being victimized by abusers by offering them a place to stay, a ride to a safe location, or to watch their children. Utilize community resources like safe houses and hotlines.

Attention Hollywood Writers: “Anarchy” and “Chaos” are NOT Synonyms

Anarchy is not Chaos

Despite what our governments want us to think, despite what Google and many dictionaries tell us to think, and despite what apparently every writer in Hollywood DOES think, “anarchy” and “chaos” are NOT synonyms. In fact, they are not necessarily even related terms:

“Anarchy” does NOT mean “a state of disorder [or lawlessness] due to absence or nonrecognition of authority”. It does NOT mean the absence of RULES, but rather the absence of RULERS: Anarchy is the purest form of democracy, i.e. a system of government under which all people equally and collectively decide what the rules (laws) of their society will be.

“Chaos” is the word Hollywood writers (and all the Sheeple in their audience) should use to convey “the absence of order”. Chaos is neither the same as, nor necessarily a consequence of, a state of anarchy. Consequently, propagandizing “ANARCHY AND CHAOS” as the antithesis of “LAW AND ORDER” is a false Orwellian conflation intended to protect the established order.

Anarchy is not Chaos. Organize…

You may not agree with everything you see in this image, but we don’t need to agree on everything in order to unite against our common oppressors:

  • If you prefer #AllLivesMatter to #BlackLivesMatter, for instance, that’s no reason not to join hands with those who feel otherwise when the rights of all are at risk. Just remember how Evelyn Hall defined freedom of speech in The Friends of Voltaire:

    “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

  • If you’re no more likely to be seen at an LGBTQ rally than Winston Churchill was at a meeting of the Comintern, consider his response to critics of his alliance with a totalitarian Soviet Union against Hitler’s Nazi Germany:

    “If Hitler invaded Hell, I would make at least a favorable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons.”

  • And regardless of whether your 9/11 view is Red Pill or Blue, one incontrovertible 9/11 truth is that never have Americans traded more liberties for less security than they have since 2001. Were he alive today, Benjamin Franklin would certainly say:

    “Those willing to sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.”

As awakened advocates for the 99 Percent, we must no longer allow the greedy 1 Percent and their puppet politicians to maintain a Two-Party Tyranny using fake news to confuse and mislead us, false flags to scare and subdue us, and social wedge issues to divide and rule us. For as Thomas Jefferson observed:

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

The time to set aside our differences is now. All we need to agree on is the trumps – not like the clown president Trump, whose agenda will be set by the Deep State just as it was for Obama, Bush and Clinton before him, but rather these trumps:

  • Love trumps Hate
  • Tolerance trumps Prejudice
  • Education trumps Ignorance
  • Liberty trumps Privilege
  • Ecology trumps Economy
  • People trump Profit
  • Peace trumps War

Only through solidarity can we achieve true and lasting liberty, equality and democracy. Join activists from many domestic and international struggles as we form an unstoppable alliance for freedom against the puppet Trump regime and the underlying omnipotent Deep State responsible for all the world’s major conflicts as well as much of its social injustice, disease, poverty, hunger, ignorance, prejudice, racism, genocide and ecocide. Unite with UNAC!
