Black Bloc in Every
With the return of another
oppressive school year, teenagers around North America are getting
together and organizing resistance to their authoritarian high
schools, as well as the shit they have to put up with every day.
These young people have organized a variety of groups, some of which
are members of the fast growing Network of Anarchist
Youth (AYA-NAY). If you'd like to join this growing movement,
drop us a note!
to Impose Curfews on Teens
The war against young people
jumps the Atlantic. Queen to propose curfews for teenagers.
Liberation Conference, Dec.15-17
An ambitious conference for
liberated young people. The program looks very interesting.
Homecoming Lost Its Way?
Moments after being crowned
homecoming king in front of 5,000 spectators, Patrick Griffiths
carefully placed his crown on the ground and walked off the Mira
Costa High School football field. He did so in protest against what
he called a superficial popularity contest. He knew he was making a
statement, but the lanky 17-year-old--a self-described "intellectual
anarchist" who doesn't believe in armed revolution--never dreamed
his actions would make national headlines.
If you live on the East
Coast of the U.S., you may want to check out this conference which
is happening on Long Island on December 9 and 10, 2000.
Students Post Articles Online
It was an emotional act
of teenage mutiny: printing a blank page on the front of the Sidwell
Friends school newspaper after administrators had pulled a scathing
article about wrongdoing in a math class.
network mentioned by counter-terrorism organization
In the "mighty
confused" department, a story on the Independent Media Center web
site has a excerpt from a security alert issued by an
"anti-terrorism" organization. The report was published for
authorities preparing for the anti-GOP protests last month in
Philadelphia. Here's a quote from the report:
"Unfortunately, experience and current
intelligence show that the demonstrators will not be merely a group
of young idealistic college students, but also using the protests
for cover will be radical extremists from such groups as the
Anarchist Action Network, Anarchist Youth Action
/Network of Anarchist Youth, Anarchy for Anybody,
and Radikal Anarchist Liberation Front. For more details, see

Attacking the "Best" in Kiddie
Tired of being treated like a
consumer and subjected to thousands of ads each day?
in Public Schools & Libraries
On Tuesday, June 27, the
U.S. Senate adopted a mandatory filtering amendment to be added huge
appropriations bill for the Departments of Labor, HHS and Education,
which would require both schools and libraries to install
"censor-ware" or be denied services provided under the federal
"e-rate" plan. We at Rock Out Censorship see this as a form of
political blackmail that forces local authorities to either endorse
censorship, or lose the vital funding needed for computer and
deserved expulsion for Yippie-inspired article, Oregon court
SALEM, Ore. ?A Bend high
school was justified in expelling a student for his underground
newspaper article on how to explode toilets, take over the school
intercom and other acts inspired by the Yippies, the state Court of
Appeals said yesterday.

The Youth of today have no fear.
The themes of Wednesday's protests (8/16/2000), were the issues of
Police Brutality, the Death Penalty, Political Prisoners, and mass
incarceration. At the Staples Center, some 4,000 people faced off
with the LAPD Riot Squad. The LAPD were heavily armed with 12 Gauge
Shotguns, Tear Gas guns, and Rubber Bullet guns. The were deployed
in overwhelming and intimidating force. I took this photograph of a
young female protestor as she fearlessly stared down the gun toting
Police standing opposite her.

Rethinks Rule Change On Spanking
It should come as no
surprise that a state that executes people on a weekly basis can
find a way to legalize violence against foster care children.
Loudoun Student Pays
Kupersmith refuses to participate in his high school's "minute of
silence." For two consecutive days he's left the classroom when the
"minute" was observed. He now faces detention for merely standing up
for his rights.
