ABOLISYON!
Hands Off Walden Bello! [tl]

Tagalog

Ang pag-aresto kay Dr. Walden Bello ay patunay na ang libel, sistema ng pagpiyansa, at pre-trial detention (ang pangungulong habang hindi pa nadidinig ang kaso sa korte) ay mga sandata ng panunupil ng estado. Mariin naming kinukundena ang kawalang-katarungang ito at nakikiisa kami sa panawagang #HandsOffWaldenBello!

A Bongbong Marcos Presidency will be Proof Democracy Works, and That’s the Problem Fuck your “democracy in action” [en]

Bongbong Marcos is set to win the 2022 Philippine presidential election. If and when he wins, it will be ultimate proof of democracy in action, that democracy works. “Democracy in action” gave us Duterte, Trump, Thatcher, Nixon, Bush Sr. and Jr., heck Hitler too. “Democracy in action” also gave the world the Biden presidency as the so-called “harm reduction” candidate yet Biden kept the concentration camps open and allowed conservatives to assault the rights of Queer people and women. “Democracy in action” is precisely the problem.

To Be Libertarian During Election Season [en]

Whenever libertarians and anarchists such as I discuss our complex interaction engaging in electoralism, such as the situation now in the Philippines, we always face the criticisms that we are “disconnected to the masses,” “unaware of the material conditions that people face” or even worse “politically illiterate” as a part of our society.

Ang Maging Libertaryo sa Gitna ng Halalan [tl]

Kapag ipinamamalas ng mga libertaryo at anarkistang katulad ko ang aming maselan na pagpili sa pakikilahok sa mga tipong kampanya halalan tulad ng nagaganap ngayon sa Pilipinas, lagi pinaparatangan ang mga bagong radikal na “diskunektado sa masa,” “walang alam sa materyal na kundisyon ng tao” o masaklap pa, “walang alam sa pulitika” sa lipunang kinabibilangan namin.

KonTRAPOlitiko
Theses on Halalan 2022 [en]

Editorial note from Bandilang Itim

This is an edited anthology of collected notes from comrades critical of Halanan 2022, the 2022 Philippine General Elections. “KonTRAPOlitiko” is not an organization, nor is it our collective name. Rather, KonTRAPOlitiko is the name we give to our anger: “Kontra” meaning “against,” “TRAPO” meaning “traditional politician,” and “politiko” meaning politician. Thus “kontra-politiko” could be translated as “anti-politician.” We the authors are not all anarchists, but we are united in our anger and contempt of the politicians. Because this is an anthology of sorts, certain themes in some theses are repeated in others, but on a whole we have tried to curb repitition and arrange these in a thematic way.

Reflections on Fil-Am History Month From an Autonomist Filipinx [en]

Where do I begin? I was born in the Philippines almost three decades ago. My story there is brief — by the time I was two years old, I’d already migrated with my parents to the United States.

Wrath Over Pride A call-out post to “radical” cis (het) men and their inadequacy in gender struggles [en]

I want to talk about gender issues in “progressive/radical/revolutionary spaces” before Pride Month ends because it’s so important. I need to call out cis (het) men[1] in radical/progressive spaces—especially the anarchist, Marxist, or generally progressive men that I see around or know.
