STICKY: MARP IS THE 0% – a disclaimer blog explaining why MARP is a great source for information to distrust

HOW TO READ MARP

The Text on the Milton Avenue Revolutionary Press represents no one or no thing.

The MARP is a futile exercise in New Media, Alternative Blog Journalism, Cultural Production, Satire, and rendering things in specific terminology (ie. WORDS, WORDS, WORDS, WORDS) — with no express purpose except to be read in the internet-epoch of the “attention economy”.

When reading MARP, the most important thing is to understand is that it is not meant to be understood. We at the MARP are also committed to nothing more than publishing a small fragment of implausible interpretations.

This Text is Incomplete and Incompletable.

NOTE: The MARP is DEAD

MARP nominated for SSMU Award

2012 official photo of mcgill principal heather munroe-blum

Earlier today, our editor-in-chief Karlos Marx received official email notice of the Milton Avenue Revolutionary Press’ nomination for SSMU Publication of the Year.

This would entail Karlos getting funky with heather at an all-you-can-drink gala — and maybe him spending his sixth evening sleeping over at the james admin building.

cute

cute office (click for HD... email me for 5.7MB version)

 

 

It remains unclear whether or not campus conservatives will protest the nomination, while it is certain that Karlos has again pragmatically looked forward while all others will expose themselves as reactionaries.

Best of luck to our competition, without you, there could be no growth.

MARP on strike along with Philosophy, Feminist Studies, and Art History & Communications Studies at McGill.

No more critical theory — until we decide it is the proper route.

The time for dialectics is over, now we act.

PSA McGill Unlimited General Strike

In response to yesterday’s MRO sent by Jim Nicell, “Message re blocking of classes – Accès aux salles de cours bloqué”, we would like to challenge the McGill University Administration’s characterization of events on campus and the responses to them, in particular the summary banning of students from the McGill campus.
There were several incidents on the McGill campus on 26 March in which a number of students who were peacefully expressing their views were singled out and barred from campus for 5 days under article 21a of the Code of Student Conduct. Yesterday’s MRO states that: “Everyone in our community has the right to express peacefully their views about issues.”

We believe that this selection and punishment of certain students for exclusion from our campus and community is especially draconian and a completely inappropriate response to their actions. This further harassment of students by the administration is in addition…

MARPLEAKS: Tons of Dox About The James McGill Royal Centre for The Advancement of Capital

The MARP is proud to announce that we are going to release a full payload of dox relating to Corporate Investments at the McGill Military-Money-Factory Complex.

hell yes

all i want is a bunch of industrial factories from which i can exploit surplus value to make more industrial factories... but right now i'm just rolling dice in an alley for cigarettes and more dice.

We understand that releasing these hundred-and-thirty pages will be very funny / divisive — but the MARP doesn’t give a fuck.

I hope the Admin cough on their cigars while laughing brandy through their noses at the fireplace.

The dox, as previously discussed, were released to our source through an Access-to-Information request, which was submitted to Secretary-General Stephen Strople by a brave comrade.

This person who bravely entered the James Administrative Security Centre through the front doors — armed with a sealed envelope and knowledge of the law.

After the requisite extraordinary delay period — which McGill abused to the very limit of what is allowed under the law — the dox were then provided to our source after they paid standard-rate profitable-print-fees to the McGill Informatics Control Board.

look at it

this is literally only a fraction of the beginning of the second set of scanned files. what could it mean?

While I am not educated in Bourgeois Economics, I can see what use these will be to campus radicals — now when one claims there is a deep connection between evil mining corporations and weapons manufacturers and McGill, there will be documents to prove it!
[Ed’s note: This of course presumes that digital text is more highly regarded in the present age of the “information economy” as the materially present shrines to mining on campus were not enough.

Plus, professors/workers who wish to know how pensions are invested may find some clues!! [SPOILER: AMERICAN OIL, PIPELINES, BANKS, MINING]

Have fun! Check for your favourite banks (like RBC, where The HMB is a board member) or your favourite labour crushing Industrial Tin Producer Rio/Tinto Alcan (where The HMB is also a board member).

[Ed’s note: PS email SSMU VP Internal Plumm Sauce and tell him to make MARP the SSMU publication of the year to MARP so Karlos Marx can go to an all-you-can-drink gala with Administrators!!

This is EXTRA hilarious because if you read the McGillLeaks you would see that the school keeps tabs on everyone who attends a dinner at the same place as HMB
(amirite Mr. Birks LOL!!🙂 )

BUZZPOST: MARPLEAKS en route??

MARP has access to documents which reveal corporate ties in the university.

proof

i am not an economist so i don't even understand the subtextual elements.

 

Our source has assured us of the authenticity of the documents

And also our legitimacy in publishing them as they were released to him through an Access to Information request ¿¿thus they are now his property and we can put them online??

(this part is still fuzzy)

STAY TUNED FOR MORE MARPLEAKS DETAILS!!

ANTI-POLICE BRUTALITY MARCH UPDATE

MARP has been really busy avoiding THE LAW along with other student-run publications.

SDgh uilzwgrzd

ziofgzdio; fugrk

Also, Karlos Marx has been in the streets more often facing off against the Pigs on the front lines.

Yesterday, 15 Mars, is the Annual International Day of Action Against Police Brutality and, like every other year, Montreal’s HARDEST anarchists were in the streets.

The government has also recently recommended that people DO NOT enter the streets and express their rage against the Pigs. What better excuse to confirm attendance?

djklfgzsuio W*t9

Disobey the State. Get hit by the State. Learn your relation to the State.
And Capital.

On 15 Mar, the People assembled at St. Catherines at Berri-UQAM at 5 pm and took the streets.

Marching all around the city, expressing the Power of The People doing this:

FUCK LA POLICE

Yesterday’s march was easily one of the most successful in recent memory.

OPEN LETTER FROM SSMU SAYS “FUCK OFF AUS – McGILL IS NOT A CONSEQUENCE FREE ENVIRONMENT!”

We at the MARP are proud to reblog this Open Letter from SSMU against lying turncoat politician council, the Arts Undergraduate Vanguard.

lineup for AUS GA 2012

this lineup speaks to the fact that the idea of a strike-vote occupied people's metaphysical space

Interestingly, the AUS was given a deal (25% off) to join CLASSE, but VP Finance spoke against the $5, 600 fee with disgusting crocodile-tears all over her piglet face in-between #rude asides to Rad Mob Women by the mic.

Of course, VP Finance has proven herself braindead because $12 000 in cash was stolen from under her piggish noseduring Fall 2011 Frosh. This fact does not negate the fact that the AUS still made $9 000 on Frosh, and has $22 000 in pure Digitized Capital in the Bank.

bro

bro did u hear there wuld be smosas?

It’s hard to explain how bad the AUS General Assembly was, but I will try.

Out of 7 000 members, 3 000+ showed to vote, but it took three hours of delays to even begin discussion. After six minutes of debate, campus Fascists forced a call to vote.
It went like this:

(Scene: Roman Colosseum.
Audience cheers spectacle, blood)
Fascist: THROW THE CHRISTIANS TO THE LIOOOONNS!!!
55% of Audience: RYYYRYAYAYHAHAHHGHAGHAH
Fascist: MOTION TO SUSPEND RULES AND CALL VOTE!

This resulted in the 1 100 remaining AUS students to vote 45% FOR an Unlimited General Strike without any debate or amendments.

Extremely close considering that when people do not know what they are voting for (via uninformed / misinformed via sensationalist fascist tactics) they vote for the status quo(ie. racism, sexism, transphobia, oppression, police-state, war on the impoverished, drug incarceration in racialized neighbourhoods, TUITION HIKES).

SO HERE BELOW, is a REBLOG of a letter from SSMU to AUS:

To the AUS Executive Committee:

We would like to congratulate you on an extremely well-attended General Assembly last night. We would also like to express our extreme disappointment and frustration concerning the poor communication, organization, and attitude which shaped your response to the unexpected numbers and thus took a toll on SSMU staff, clubs, services, executives, attendees, and other students using the building.

Because of your lack of contingency planning for the high turnout, the SSMU Executive and full-time staff had to neglect their other responsibilities to intervene in the crisis. When we asked your volunteers and members of your Executive Committee how to help, there was little to no direction provided and most seemed clueless as to any plan of action.

Our Security Supervisor had to call in extra agents on short notice, as well as calling on other staff members to stay overtime in order to ensure the security of the event. Our Executive and staff were outside communicating to your frustrated and confused members about what was going on. The AUS harassed our clubs, most notably the Muslim Students’ Association, to move out of rooms in order to accommodate your needs. After initially rebuffing their desire to livestream the event, you demanded that TVM–a volunteer-run student service–give you “tech support” and accommodate your needs at a moment’s notice.

While we are happy to work with the AUS to help you run events that are relevant to your members (who, after all, are all part of SSMU as well), such a partnership requires responsibility sides. Such failures reflect poorly on both of our organizations.

In short, we are not only disappointed with your poor planning, but also disgusted by your sense of entitlement and disrespect for the space, time, and resources of others.

Due to these concerns, the SSMU Executive Committee has decided to take the following actions:

  • The AUS Executive may not book any more space in the William Shatner University Centre until the term of the current AUS Executive Committee has expired, except on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Building Managers. Groups which normally book space through the AUS are invited to contact VP Clubs & Services Carol Fraser directly (cs@ssmu.mcgill.ca).
  • The AUS will be billed for all security agents, staff overtime, services (including TVM), and cleaning costs incurred by last night’s event.
  • We demand that the AUS issue a public letter of apology to the affected clubs and services, our Security Supervisor, our staff, and all attendees–who are also SSMU members–who were in any way frustrated by the General Assembly.
  • Concerning the AUS’s Nuit Blanche event on March 22, we have changed the booking to “pending” status. The booking will only be accepted upon receipt of a complete, thorough, written document about the event, which will outline all activities and their locations, all volunteers and coordinators involved and their contact information, a detailed timeline including setup and clean-up, and a crisis management plan in the event of whatever mishaps may arise. This document must be submitted to the SSMU General Manager no later than noon on Monday, March 19.

We look forward to rebuilding our relationship into a more productive partnership.

Sincerely,

Todd Plummer (Vice President, Internal) and Carol Fraser (Vice President, Clubs & Services)

on behalf of The SSMU Executive Committee, 2011-2012
