#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 . . .

#BuyNothingDay - Tactical Briefing 2

November 23, 2020

This year's #BuyNothingDay stands to be the most critical yet in the activist tradition's nearly 30-year history.Why? It hardly bears repeating: the coronavirus has decimated the economy and (re-)exposed nauseatingly profound inequalities. In its wake, barely any but the biggest and most ruthless of businesses can hope to survive while the rest drop like flies.

With the advent of the coronavirus pandemic, the upcoming shopping season — beginning with Black Friday and continuing through Xmas to the New Year — is going to be a lot different than it ever was in the past.
