An audio-visual archival resource focusing on radical activism around Australia, particularly during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s (although resources are not restricted exclusively to this time period).

The archive recovers "lost" and rare independent Australian documentaries (also vérité footage of historical significance) in order to preserve these films, videos and audio for posterity before they reach end of life and disappear permanently.

The focus is on visual/aural material.....the archive currently has 204 film streams and 91 audio streams.

There is a reason we call each other "comrades" and not "friends" on the Memefest network.

Here a new book From Jodi Dean: Comrade
An Essay on Political Belonging

When people say “comrade”, they change the world

In the twentieth-century millions of people across the globe addressed each other as “comrade”. Now, it’s more common to hear talk of “allies” on the left than it is of comrades. In Comrade, Jodi Dean insists that this shift exemplifies the key problem with the contemporary left: the substitution of political identity for a relation of political belonging that must be built, sustained, and defended.

In Comrade, Dean offers a theory of the comrade. Comrades are equals on the same side of a political struggle. Voluntarily coming together in the struggle for justice, their relationship is characterised by discipline, joy, courage, and enthusiasm. Considering the generic egalitarianism of the comrade in light of differences of race and gender, Dean draws from an array of historical and literary examples such as Harry Haywood, C.L.R James, Alexandra Kollontai, and Doris Lessing. She argues that if we are to be a left at all, we have to be comrades.

Thanks Oliver, sounds like an interesting essay. Especially for those of us who grew up with this notion of camerade.
Cheers

"During the introduction of a recent speech by Donald Trump at Turning Point USA Teen Student Action Summit, someone — reportedly by accident and has since been fired from Turning Point — pasted into the slides a 2016 faux seal created by Charles Leazott that features an eagle holding wads of cash and golf clubs with a ribbon that says, in Spanish, “45 is a Puppet”. Score one for the resistance."

For those who are interested in how to build and run a small social network site, certainly an alternative to Facebook or Twitter, here is a great guide:

https://runyourown.social

"Keeping the social network sites small is essential for customization that will meet everyone's needs. Kazemi doesn't suggest going over 100 users. Smaller communities are easier to manage both technically and socially, but it also creates an intimacy where it's possible to know everyone in the group, creating a truly private, curated space. "

Donald Weber writes about photography as a discipline, profession and practice, which still has a long journey to make for to be able to think the conditions of its own production. This work is part of a larger body of work Donald and I are developing, one day it will be a book. A next text related to the ideas Donald is talking about here is in the making. Highly recommended reading!
