A First.

While it may seem very common now-a-days for revolutionaries, rebels, or otherwise non-government supported militia members hefting an AK-47 or similar patterned rifle, the trend got its start in the late days of October 1956.

Josef Tibor Fejesis the man featured in the two pictures above, and he was the first recorded resistance fighter to heft an AK-47 in opposition to a military force. Whether it was looted from a dead body is unsaid, but it was known that with close to then thousand men revolting against Soviet invaders, many Soviets had abandoned their equipment in the field during a hasty retreat (including guns, incapacitated vehicles, even their own dead soldiers).

But sometimes protests get “out of hand,” which is to say, they actually impact the authorities’ ability to keep the population under control. Then, without fail, police and politicians proceed to the second strategy in their playbook: they declare that they support the protesters and are there to defend their rights, but a few bad apples are spoiling the bunch. In this new narrative, the enemies of the protesters are not the police who are gassing and shooting people, but those who resist the police and their violence.

Anarchists take an extreme anti-authoritarian position which fights for the abolition of all structures of domination and coercion such as the state, capitalism, white supremacy and patriarchy. Some anarchists extend this opposition to the foundations of civilization itself and others center their antagonisms on an anti-capitalist politics that rejects state power as a tool for liberation. Most anarchists seek forms of living and working together grounded in practices of self-organization, mutual aid, collective decision making and direct action that undermine hierarchical power structures. This almost always puts anarchists in direct opposition to professional activists and the nonprofit managers of movements.
