#BlackSpot Manifesto

Surveillance capitalism. Political derangement. Corporate tyranny. Minority subjugation. Climate change. Global pandemics.

Humanity today faces many daunting challenges. To dig ourselves out of any one of these holes, we're going to have to rally historic reserves of grit and gumption to each cause.

But the tasks at hand are not insurmountable. Though they will require us to search deep within ourselves — not only for the way, but for the will necessary to face them — we must rise to the occasion if we are to have any kind of viable future. The survival of our species (and many others) depends on it.

Acting as one, we can overturn the failing neoliberal order, revitalize democracy and secure a sustainable future that computes. But only if we can summon the radical ideas and revolutionary spirit equal to overcoming these threats — existential threats that we all must face together.

We're at a tipping point. The internet has reversed a centuries old power dynamic. Billions of us now hold the most revolutionary tool ever invented in the palms of our hands. Backed by collectives like ours, the streets have unprecedented power. After centuries of rule by kings, emperors, tyrants, mad men, fascists, communists, Maoists, military dictatorships, corporations and white supremacists like Donald Trump, we can now take charge of our own destiny and start calling the shots from below.

Today we are 14,000 strong. Tomorrow we will be 100,000. The day after next, we could amass a billion people — enough to spark a world revolution in how we live, love and think.

Be one of us. Be one in a billion! Join the Blackspot Collective — our global network of activists, artists, writers and revolutionaries — for tactical briefings, campaign info and critical intelligence.
Let’s get together, build an empowered global network, share ideas and tactics, and propel the world in brave new directions.

See you in the streets . . .

In a picture included in an e-mail we received August 13th, ten men in fatigues and tactical gear, bearing military-style rifles, pose with an American flag. The message, which refers to us at Adbusters as “lowly little skinny jean wearing fuck boys” (gee, does that sting!), reads as follows: “You’ve awakened a sleeping giant, the sheep will be fucked up real nicely by us SheepDogs ... seasoned vets whom seen war up and personal, actually, I kind of miss it a bit...” (sic).

Last Friday, the streets were witness to the Full Moon Rebellion. The energy in the back alleys and boulevards was palpable. We took early steps towards overcoming our lethargy, rekindling our passion, and screwing up the rare courage required to fight this self-created beast called Extinction.

We are facing the abyss — “an unprecedented global emergency,” according to Extinction Rebellion (XR): “Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making.”

Something heavy in the spring air has stirred the world’s citizenry to unrest. They have marched defiantly on their nations’ capitals, in rejection of corruption, disparity, mismanagement, and tyranny. Some hail from undemocratic states; others, from (nominally) democratic ones.
