hi

Thought as I've started posting in these forums thought I'd introduce myself. Rochelle, born in South Africa, left in '89. Been anarchist since my mid-teens, currently active in Manchester SolFed. Married to my toyboy JDMF (but don't hold that against me)

Did the being an anarchist and living in SA overlap? I've deliberately not added up the years in my head so please don't be offended if that would make you out to be really old!

So hmmm that's got to be what 4 couples on here now? You + JDMF, rkn+zobag, Wayne+lucy_parsons, Grace+Fatty. I can't wait till our first online lovers' tiff (and jack and revol don't count) 8)

Does that mean we get a nobbing and sobbing forum?

yes, anarchism and living in SA did overlap. I'm 35, left when I was 18. So yep, I'm pretty old.

Thanks to a 'zine putting a letter from me in one of it's issues in 1986, I ended up having lots of anarchists from all over the world writing to me, I guess many people were interested in what it was like to be radically left under apartheid. I wouldn't classify myself as explicitly anarchist when I wrote the letter to the zine, but I was sent so much anarchist literature than I quickly identified as an anarchist.

I never actually met another South African anarchist until a couple of years ago, then I met 3 all at once- two of which only lived about 60 km away from where I grew up, and are in my age group, but yeah, we never met. Now of course I'm in touch with Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Federation and I think they are interesting. I'm not really a platformist though but I like their focused approach, and will certainly work with them when JDMF and I move to SA.

No one said that. I just assumed Fatty was the new guy posting as Fatty and that you and Revol should change al the references to each other. Unless poor old Fatty is a stopgap. But he is a pleasant chap with a large cock so I reckon he's a keeper. wink

But you did change it (and Revol's out of prison too!). Might want to remove Revol68 from your hobbies too, just so Fatty doesn't get insecure. Might keep him on his toes tho...

I just signed up and thought I should introduce myself....

I'm an "Ultra-Left" Marxist from Swansea and I'm 18.

Well I guess that's a decent introduction. smile

Anyway hello everyone!

Well first and foremost, I'd have to "Citizen Marx". However, I have read some Anarchist literature (mainly short pieces and FAQ's) and a lot of what I've read does impress me and I have also been impressed by some of the Left-Communist, Council Communist etc. literature I've read.

I suppose it could be said that I "gravitated" towards the "Ultra-Left" and then read pieces by people who would be considered "Ultra-Left" which confirmed (and expressed better) the views I already had.

hey, im chris...

currently live in watford, uk....occupation:school.

i belong to a group called hackbloc, dont know how well known they are.

we have just had a major overhaul, which has included a complete recoding of several sites.

hackbloc UK is under development.

hackbloc UK is an anarchist group, but who have specialities. we use our skills as computer hackers/computer programmers to help in our cause.

the community is active, and has recently undertaken, and will continue to undertake computer related attacks against opposition.

so....if you need help securing your website, or want help in computer related subjects, id be happy to help.

i dunno what else to say really...so eeerrr...*dances*

If you’re so good, why don’t you get Dunnes stores payroll to dish Joanne Delaney a nice big number? Or make all their goods magically free? Or wipe out working class debt?

What is the greatest extent of the help provided by hacking? It’s a friendly enquiry.

well, firstly dont mistake this for a cop out...hell, we plan to be as active on the streets as off them.

however, in all reality, no lasting revolutions, or even changes happen without public support.

and think about the number of people who are connected to the internet. computers are a central part of life in todays capitalist society, they power everything from your mobile phones to space rockets.

ignoring this very big oppertunity to reach people, would be irresponsible at best.

and dont mistake the term computer hacker. the fact that we can hack, means we have a very complex and complete understanding of computers, and a very large range of related subjects.

things like web design are important if people want to get noticed. some rubbish looking site that looks really seedy and fake is only going to make people avoid it.

and there are right wing organisations that also attempt to destroy online sources of left wing news and infomation. how can a group of anarchists with relitively little experience in computer security hope to prevent attacks and such activities.

also, certain issues that relate to computers, directly or indirectly, need to be tackled, and there are many groups dedicated to changing the ways computers are seen and used.

for example, when you print something off, certain models of printers, especially in USA encode data in the a few dots of the image, which contains infomation about your pc. infomation that could be used to identify you.

the fact that you use an operating system such as windows means you are supporting capitalist multi national companies.

in america, there are many examples.

one cannot tackle, and overthrow a capitalist, corrupt system, and ignor a very large heart of it.

you cannot destroy a company like microsoft, without offering reasonable alternatives. no matter how many riots happen in the streets, how perfect a society we set up, it will not last if all parts are not subtably changed.

hell, you are using a computer to read what i am typing, so it shows how vital they can be.

lol, i assume your not actually serious about that.

do you think that if i hacked into a bank, and transfered a load of money, the bank, victim, and police would just say "oh...ok...fair play...let them keep it"

all that would happen is the person who recieved the money would be arrested, the account would be frozen, and eventually the money transfered back, in most cases. not to mention, the fact that the govt seem to fabricate charges, and for such an act i could face a charge of computer terrorism, which can carry similar penalties to ordinary terrorism charges? ok, if there would be a gain from it, it could be worth it, but all that it would achieve is a life sentance for a few people.

Say you did it to 50 million people.

Then the landlord won’t get paid. Anyway, hack it open again.

You’d have thought so, but the government is about to write-off a lot of computer-error overpayments. Not enough though, so fair enough.

I deserved that. Sorry.

Good answers 3600, I think Lazy is joking, or he may be testing you to see if you're dumb enough to admit to crimes on the net.

If you were to hack their computers and reactivate her on the payroll then no one would notice.
