Since the mid-1990s, CrimethInc. has been one of the most prolific and ambitious anarchist projects in North America. Participants have crisscrossed the world for countless tours and actions; produced books, magazines, and other publications, including 650,000 copies of their debut Fighting for Our Lives. The collective has been to Slovenia several times, therefore partial translation of their book Work directly resonates collective discussions of the Slovene-speaking anarchist movement and CrimethInc. In the text entitled Resistance they explore possibilities of revolutionizing our lives on the everyday level. They emphasize that anyone and everywhere can resist, as long as this resistance remains inherent to the needs of every individual. After the initial analysis of the system around us, authors reject reformism as a productive form of engagement in the struggle for a radical transformation of society. The only way to combat recuperation of alternative practices is, in their opinion, a constant struggle against and beyond the existent. They understand resistance as a long-term process of continuous breaks, non-linear advances and retreats, where the main component of every revolutionary strategy remains a constant revolutionizing of the tactics. The text is therefore a mixture of analyses of the system and of the resistance, as well as a field guide through the new territories of struggle.
