Today. I have watched some of the new films I got at the London Anarchist Bookfair and in Germany. The German video CD- which after some trials and begging finally was played on the DVD player was surprisingly good for a historical film about Anarchosyndicalism. Not too dry, quite informative and with a little bit of fun. I’ll try to make a copy and send it on to Projectile, the anarchist film festival in Newcastle, which will be running in February.
Afterwards I watched the “This is what democracy looks like” video made by Big Noise Tactical and Seattle Indymedia about the Seattle anti-WTO protests in 1999. Naff title, the film has, but good editing, similar to the “Fourth World War”.
Now I am chewing on a video “Outfoxed- Rupert Murdoch’s war on journalism”, produced again by famous Robert Greenwald. Later to be followed by a documentary about Fidel Castro.
have finished now the book on Che Guevera’s travel in South America, but the end was so prophetic, that it could be suspected it has been added much later on…as well as the whole book was as such pretty much unpolitical, and then on the last page, there is the full dosage, in a different style altogether.
So I started with “The Dispossessed” by Ursula LeGuin as recommended by the Edinburgh Anarchist Studies Group.

Fidel Castro still have some good legacies despite his not so good repuation.::*
