The following communique was sent anonymously to It’s Going Down which we reprint below.

This time within and against time, is what we continue glimpse here and there, here and everywhere, as we arrange our daily lives as practices of intifada. In Tahrir square or a Target parking lot, as much as in cafes or football stands.
As you clear this path, we are not far behind you, snow crunching beneath our boots, demanding as enacting the fall of every regime.
