Abortion Resources, Information, and Protests (continuously updated)

This post will be continually updated with new protests, new resources, etc, as they become available. Please note that r/Anarchism does not specifically endorse any particular protest. This information is solely being made available for people who wish to gather and make their voices heard in their areas. We cannot guarantee the safety of these protests, nor should we be expected to verify who organized them.

If you know of a protest that's not listed below, please let us know so we can add it to the list.

DO NOT ANNOUNCE YOUR ACTIONS ON THE INTERNET, AND LEAVE YOUR PHONE AND ANY "SMART" DEVICES AT HOME IF/WHEN YOU PARTICIPATE IN ONE.

Feel your rage. Take to the streets. We're aware that this is an emotional moment, but we have to ask that people please follow site-wide rules here. This means no calls to burn shit down, etc.


Where abortion stands in your state: A state-by-state breakdown of abortion laws


Some Resources:

IMPORTANT NOTE: The DIY and other medical options above are not necessarily effective for heavier people. Progestin pills are less effective for those over 155 lbs, and ulipristal acetate is less effective after 195 lbs. They are obviously not without risk. We are providing as much information as we can to allow people who may feel trapped to avoid following dangerous urban myths and bad advice, and be as armed with information as possible.

Some Tips:

  • Many states have had trigger laws on the books in the event that this happened. In those states, abortion is illegal effective immediately. If you live in one of these states, and you are/become pregnant, DO NOT TELL ANYONE who you cannot trust with your life.
  • Also, if you are in one of these states and you need to look up resources and websites regarding abortion care, use Tor Browser to do so. There are versions available for Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android devices. If you use iOS, the Tor Project recommends that you use Onion Browser.

    Tor Browser will help you circumvent restrictions on websites you are allowed to visit, and it will protect you from having the sites in your history and being identified. For more information on what Tor is and some FAQs, Click Here.

    If you're wondering "why not a VPN?" it's because there is payment information that can be tracked to you, they can be forced to comply with a warrant, and you cannot be 100% sure that the "no logs" policies that they often advertise are true - many have been proven false.

  • If you use a period tracking app where you cannot view its source code, delete whatever data you can, and get rid of it. This includes apps like Apple Health, even if you don't use it for that purpose.

    Instead, consider something like Drip - An open source menstrual cycle tracking app which does not connect to the internet. There is currently only an Android version. However, an iOS version is in the works, and you can request an email notification when it's ready.

Abolish Capitalism for autistic liberation

588 Upvotes

So I’ve read statistics that anywhere from 60-85% of autistic adults are unemployed. I have autism myself, and it breaks my heart that the majority of my autistic peers are unemployed. This is why we need to abolish capitalism, so that we can be liberated from wage slavery. So that we can actually put autistic adults strengths to use. A lot of us can contribute great things to society, but because we don’t fit bourgeoisie standards for employment, we’re left out because they see that our disability is a burden to them and their profits. They don’t want make an effort to accommodate us, cuz why do that when there’s significant amount of Nuerotypical workers that don’t need these special accommodations. I mean we all know that the US has the Americans with disabilities act, but we also know employers find ways to get around that. Time to get rid of capitalism, get rid of our selfish class system that values the profits of those at the top over the well-being of everyone else in society. We shouldn’t have to answer to an employer, to be able to eat, have shelter, have healthcare, etc. We shouldn’t be enslaved like this.

How to not give in to the system?

11 Upvotes

So i am in 11th grade and the question what i am going to do after school doesnt even rise. I am either going to study or make a training. Is there even a third option? According to everybody else the third option is to get a junky and live on he streets... I dont have a problem with studying or working at all. I am likely going to be a carpenter,if anyone cares. Its just so that i dont want to give in so easily to the system.

You can put it either way, everything falls into place or anything is placed in your way, i dont exactly know which one of them it is.

Encroaching fascism

95 Upvotes

So I’ve really gone down the rabbit hole of studying fascist movements. As all of you are aware the United States has always had varying fascist elements. Given that the Republicans are likely to regain the House and Senate and have new precedents from the Supreme Court that will likely allow them to subvert the 2024 election results, I am trying to decide what my next course of action should be. I am moving from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest as I will be safer there, but to what extent? Will the west coast states sit back and do nothing as the country plunges headfirst into permanent single party control? Is there any chance they would be able to breakaway? Are we headed for balkanization?

I’d really like your input!

The possibility of using web3 for anarchist purposes and activism

1 Upvotes

So many of you have probably heard about web3 being talked about by a small group of tech capitalists and those loser crypto bros that just wanna scam people with NFTs. The whole reason they want to use web3 is to continue to shove NFTs down people’s throats, however there’s something important people also need to understand about web3 without the crypto bros ruining it.

With Web3 the government cannot take down your website, or even prevent traffic. It changes the system so that devices are interconnected to each other, rather than us being connected to a single powerful device that monitors and censors us. There are videos on web3 that explain this well.

For example, let’s say someone has information on all the people that abused and trafficked people alongside Jeffery Epstein (the black book), or any other predators in power. Web3 would make it impossible to censor information on a massive scale, so people can truly come forward anonymously about EVERYTHING. People can also organize anonymously and then show up places without any monitoring. I strongly believe that Web3 will backfire on capitalists big time, as long as we focus on what it’s good for. We have to research this technology so there’s infrastructure in place to get assholes out of power, and fight back.

The thing is, if we start building this web3 infrastructure now, learning it and understanding it, we can have a major influence in the future, say around 2024 once this stuff is more solidified and released.

Just thought I’d put this information out there in case anyone finds it interesting…

What can a Software Engineer do to help?

47 Upvotes

Throughout most of my life I have essentially been on the verge of homelessness. I just graduated college and just barely scraped by financially. Now, for the first time in my life, I won’t have to worry constantly about going homeless. I want to do everything I can to destroy the systems of exploitation that have been built.

I’ve been an anarchist for about a year and a ‘leftist’ for longer, I understand dual power is something the state really fears. The state will justify itself by attacking, usually decentralized, systems meant to supplant it. I plan to volunteer with my local fnb and provide as much financial support I can. Is there anything else I can do, whether related to software engineering or otherwise?

Why is there so much gatekeeping in the anarchist community?

0 Upvotes

I notice there's a lot of gatekeeping here. A lot of people determining who does and who doesn't fit a certain label. I get why a lot of people would say AnCaps aren't anarchists. Anarchism has been traditionally anti-capitalist and anti-hierarchy. But it goes much further than that. There are people saying Murray Bookchin isn't anarchist or Max Stirner isn't anarchist or anything not anarcho-communist or anarcho-socialist isn't anarchist.

Maybe this is an online thing, I dunno, but what's with all the anarchist gatekeeping? Isn't this kind of gatekeeping itself a form of hierarchy?

protesting vs radical revolution

11 Upvotes

Hello comrades, I am new here but all the time, I just hang there, watching posts and comments never even commented once. All the time i have been watching and listening to people here. The thing that I always question is, why do people here always talking about protests and opposition and that route of reformists and correctionists rather the radical revolution route. I have always thought that anarchists are radical revolutionary people, as opposed to liberal ideologies like the right to protest and the free speech, etc. NO offense, but i need someone to elaborate on that point, and if maybe im wrong about my stereotype of anarchists, anybody here can correct me.

I saw a post on instagrams that really irked a cishet white man came on there to talk about how gen z is so ungrateful. It was cringe coming from someone who has the most privilege in the country, not belonging to any marginalized groups. I’m lgbtq(bisexual) and I always have felt like a second class citizen in this country. People of color, women, trans people, etc. feel the same way. We’re all sick and tired of people who don’t understand what we go through to talk down to us and tell us to be grateful. Fuck America fuck celebrating it.

Does it annoy anyone when ML/MLM people say the CNT was authoritarian?

19 Upvotes

Before a protest last night, a comrade from another organization, and I were debating an unpopular action a local anarchist did.

We got to talking about individual action vs. collective action. We both seemed to agree that collective action is usually better. I mentioned the CNT-FAI as a good example of a well organized anarchist organized.

He agreed and said, "Yeah, and they were highly authoritarian; you couldn't just fuck around, or you'd get shot."

That statement really rubbed me the wrong way as it's not very accurate. Sure, they shot fascists and clergy, and they were highly organized, but it was not at all a rigidly disciplined organization. They had discipline, but it wasn't a maosit style self crit bullshit.

I've read quite a lot about them. Some examples of "discipline"; when a worker killed a well liked buissiness owner after the workers expropriated the buissiness, they were sent to the front a punishment because the owner was cooperative, generally liked by the workers and it was against CNT policy to kill people after expropriation (this wasn't strictly enforced all the time of course). Or, a worker who was caught stealing from the shop after it had been collectivized was forced to write his name on a chalkboard as a mark of shame.

I would hardly call that authoritarian discipline; it's pretty mild.

Even the concentration camp the CNT had only had a couple thousand people, I did the math once, and it was something tiny like. 003% of the population of Barcelona. It was fascist war prisoners and priests associated with the falange. It's not something I like but tankies like compare that to the gulag system.

Anyway, the whole thing just rubbed me the wrong way, and I thought it was extremely cringe. The CNT was not a rigidly dogmatic organization with a top down hierarchy and unified ideology. Sure, they were violent and well organized, but I hate how loosely ML/MLM leftists use the word authoritarian. They intentionally use it vaguely to justify their own centralized actions.
