This short-lived journal describes itself as “a quarterly bulletin advocating communism — the overthrow of capitalism by the international working class and the creation of a stateless and truly egalitarian society from below” To our knowledge, 5 issues were published in 2000 and 2001.

This bulletin is of interest because its third issue is devoted to the Situationist International.  Contents:”Back to the Situationist International”by Gilles Dauve (originally published in English by American pro-Situationist Journal “Red Eye” in 1979); “The Necessity and Impossibility of Anti-Activism” by J. Kellstadt (original piece); “The Work of Ideology” (initially written and published by American pro-Situationist group Point-Blank! in the first and only issue of their journal).
