Anarcho-blogging roundup #4

Once again, I'm out of the city and away from the computer. Not that I lead (or have the money to lead) a jet-set lifestyle of any sort, you understand. A three-day training course in Manchester isn't quite the same as swanning off to the south of France for the weekend.

But anyway, in my absence, here's a quick tour around the anarchist and left-libertarian blogosphere. With, for the pedantic amongst you, a few stops at blogs that don't neccesarily self-identify as such.

@ndy comments on his own "outing" on Stormfront. He also offers us an obituary for the Australian Defence League, some more insights into Australia's "nutzis," and an interesting 2008 documentary called Antifa: Chasseurs de Skins.

Ian Bone has had an inspiring day out in Norwich in support of justice for Ian Tomlinson.

Molly Mew reports on the second organised Wal-Mart in North America, and some airport God-Botherer bothering whilst Ann Arky comments on the Spanish General Strike and protests in France. Cactus Mouth talks about the shape of British Democracy.

Over in the world of media blogging, Angry Mob tears apart the Daily Mail's polemic on asylum seekers, and reports on a rather interesting Twitter exchange involving Duncan Bannatyn from Dragon's Den. Whilst Adam Ford reviews Jack London's The Iron Heel and Nick Cave's The Death of Bunny Munro.

Aethelred the unread comments on the difficulties of finding blogging inspiration, and what it's like to find out he's "probably" not autistic.

Julia is back and on top form at Ten Minutes Hate, telling Gillet and Hicks to do one from Liverpool FC and advises readers to accept no half measures. Her considerable rant on sweat is also worth a look-in.

Quiet Riot Girl is scribbling on Foucault's walls (two links). Seán has had a script leaked to him about Yates of the Yard.

Where's the Benefit offer an easy way to protest your MP, and a series of thoughts on Mental Health Day. Bendy Girl talks about finding work [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. And Mr Civil Libertarian tells us why Real Welfare Queens wear Armani Suits, not tracksuits.

Finally, leading people over to my other blog, I shamelessly urge a read of Children, sex, and the age of consent, Atheism and all the things it's not, and Some thoughts on fascism and loyalism.

The picture on this blog comes via Ian Bone. And I'll finish with the observation that, if all of that isn't enough to keep you occupied, then you have too much time on your hands and really, really need a hobby. Or a pet.
