[Voix de Faits] Mon Anarchisme

A heads-up i should have sent out a couple of weeks ago: Nicolas from the Quebec City UCL (the Quebec successor to NEFAC) has written a quick and useful look at his own political evolution, starting from when he was an anarcho-punk back in the 90s.

i wish i had time to translate it (i don't), as i think some of the questions he touches on in passing - notably the question of "counter-power", of turning revolts into "counter-institutions", not only dismantling power but also replacing it with something else - underscore for me the rich ambiuities within contemporary anarchism around the question of political power. Which i guess i find interesting because of my own uncertainty about how to distinguish between political power and state power.

For those of you who read French, i encourage you to check it out.
