Continual War Issue 1

Some notes on this Project:
Continual War is a biannual anonymous publication focused on the recent attacks in the Northwest and across the West Coast. It will be coming out every six months. This biannual list of attacks is a time of laborious joy. Gathering communiques from online, reading newspaper articles and checking up to date anarchist sites for recent attacks.
One of the many reasons Continual War is put together. Is to expand upon the already pre-existing tensions and situations within capital and civilization. Seen in a wider context as part of a larger project of a network of individuals. That find it essential to break out of the existing anarchist models inherit in this subcultural void that plagues the US, and the waking giant that is the ever coming social war. A rise of interest has been sparked in the US towards an insurrectionary anarchist focus.
But as to what is typically considered an anarchist project (in the US). Forming bike collectives, Food Not Bombs chapters, collective houses, info-shops, etcetera, is very much the opposite as to what a project is in Europe, Canada, Chile and other continents. Where one going into these projects (that are typically not charity-esc types of activities that leftists, activists and radicals partake in out of a sense of humanity) with a critical analysis of what it is, that one is doing, an intentional beginning and focus and a direct confrontation with the existent (via Plan A or Plan B). The anarchism found in the US is a very recuperated form of what it is comparatively to European counter-parts.
This is part of that focus. To draw analysis and proposals for discussion and debate that are much warranted here in the States. Because if this rise and interest is to actually become something - an all out social war - than without any kind of communication between autonomous individuals, groups, collectives, whatever it is as a collection of bodies or a body is. Then how effective and practical is this all to be?

I attached a screenshot picture to show the four places I had to "click on" to get the file
I did have to register (free) (requires email address)
So that is a "first thing first" (see my picture #1)

I also (finally as my last choice) clicked on the large letters (see my picture #4)
It was some what confusing, cause that link looked like it was an advertisement
Yet it had a big worded "DOWNLOAD HERE" ....?
So I was not clear exactly what was the correct download link, That said I ended up clicking on a few links that I have numbered in my picture to help th next person

After the four links were all clicked [and I was signed up, by logging in]...
... I DID get the file

Which is a .pdf file of about 12 pages
