In it’s war against Nature
Civilization has already lost

Realizing my Angst is nothing but me
staring into the Abyss of the terrible forgetfulness of Infinity
that will ultimately swallow is all in its embrace

Only to be confronted in the fleeting Moments
of the only true Magic we have at our disposal
in Love and Friendship

The little Ants that we are coexisting in the Web of Life
You on this side of the World
Me on the Other

You once asked for a sign that the Thing
called the Group still had any Meaning,

This intangible thing into which we poured all our Hopes and Dreams
perhaps now only exists by the grace of a lack of form much like the
unpredictable lives that we live

As we grow older Mystery easier to Witness,
yet harder to Bear
favoring the small and meaningful as the Real to dictate what we cherish

As we grow tired of those still chasing towards Progress in their
Arrogance and their Greed, into the Abyss

I am grateful that on this journey into Nowhere which is my Life
I can still call you my Friend,

‘Signed’
Me

Docu: The Fuck It Point

April 23, 2013

eurocentric but necessary summary of industrial civilization. basically shorter version of endciv.

“Since November 13, 2003 when President Hugo Chavez, speaking at El Menito, Lagunillas, announced the increase in carbon exploitation to 36 million metric tons per year in the territories inhabited by different native ethnic groups, Sabino Romero was one of the people from indigenous communities that mobilized to protest the consequences their land would suffer due to the expansion of mega-mining in their region.

[…]
Sabino’s struggle was against the developmental model based on the extraction and commercialization of oil, gas and minerals for the world market, a role assigned to Venezuela by the economic globalization. The deepening of the state’s oil capitalism hides its consequences to the environment and the peasant and indigenous communities.

[…]
Sabino joins the roster of fighters assassinated during the Bolivarian government for defending their rights, together with Mijail Martinez, Luis Hernandez, Richard Gallardo and Carlos Requena. The only polarization we anarchists recognize is that between governors and governed, between the powerful and the weak, between bosses and workers, in general, between victims and perpetrators. Therefore we will ask nothing of the perpetrators, we expect nothing from their fake justice or the crocodile tears of the bureaucrats who empowered Sabino’s execution. Like yesterday, today and tomorrow, we will continue to mobilize with all those who struggle against the power..”

Venezuela: the killing of Sabino Romero

The following is from a statement by the El Libertario Collective following the murder of Sabino Romero, Yukpa indigenous rights activist, in Zulia, Venezuela last night:

During the night of March 3, 2013 Yukpa Cacique Sabino Romero, well known for his defense of the rights of the Yukpa people, was assassinated on Chaktapa Highway, in the Sierra de Perijá (Zulia State). Since November 13, 2003 when President Hugo Chavez, speaking at El Menito, Lagunillas, announced the increase in carbon exploitation to 36 million metric tons per year in the territories inhabited by different native ethnic groups, Sabino Romero was one of the people from indigenous communities that mobilized to protest the consequences their land would suffer due to the expansion of mega-mining in their region. Sabino’s struggle focused on obtaining the zoning and title to the indigenous territories, for which he put together different mobilizations in Zulia State as well…
