Posters

May Day 2012 Poster–Top Half

May Day 2012 Poster–Bottom Half

A poster commemorating the global rebellions of May Day 2012.

Two 11x17s that fit together as one poster.

May Day 2012 witnessed some of the most militant demonstrations in recent memory both in the US and around the world. As global insurgents begin to find their power and express their rage, it is to be expected that the state will strive to repress these acts. Let us not forget the comrades that have become prisoners of the state. Freedom to the Cleveland 5, solidarity to the insurgents arrested in Oakland CA, NYC, Seattle and everywhere else. In the face of repression, we will continue our attacks, we will continue to express our rage and discontent with every means at our disposal.

 

Zines

Half-Fizzle, Half-Sabotage

A reflection on the demise of Occupy St. Louis

Dangerous Foundations: An Argument Against the “Identity” in Identity Politics

“This is an argument against identity politics, but it is not an argument against
feminism, or queer liberation, or anti-racism work. It is instead an argument
that the oppressions usually combated through identity politics — a strategy
based on the affirmation of Identity — could be better fought through its
abandonment, or in the least through a radical destabilisation of existing
Identities.”

A newly formatted version of a critique of identity politics originally published in Aotearoa (New Zeland), Anarchist journal Imminent rebellion #9.

Select “booklet printing” in your printer options to print in zine format and make sure that “auto-rotate pages” is selected.

Not Fit for Human Consumption: How Ohio Saves Money by Poisoning Prisoners

A new zine by anarchist prisoner Sean Swain, exposing the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections’ practice of poisoning and starving inmates to save themselves a buck.

Locked Up

Italian Anarchist Alfredo M. Bonanno presents an insurrectionist anarchist analysis of the modern prison system and its role within capitalism, including a debunking of the reformist language of “prison abolition.” Complex analysis presented in a readable, conversational tone.

Notes on the Arab Spring

An introduction, a time-line and two articles on the spontaneous insurrections that occurred in the Arab world in the spring of 2011 from an anti-authoritarian perspective and with a focus on lessons applicable to the context of North America.

The Dragon and the Hydra

A short historical study of African and Native American movements in Jamaica, Suriname, Haiti, and the Southern U.S., with a focus on the decentralized organizational forms that made their rebellions against colonialism possible.

Enemies We Know

An analysis of three absolute enemies: “Police,” “Bosses,” and “Rapists.” Each is examined from their functional role within the environment they serve and exposed as an amorphous set of practices rather than a substance. In a world of such confusion, it’s nice to know certain truths.

We Know What is Ours

No, We Can’t All Just Get Along: Hip-Hop, Gang Unity and the L.A. Riots

A selection from Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation by Jeff Chang that focuses on the 1992 L.A. Riots. Provides a background of L.A.’s racial hostilities and class conflicts and the gang unity project that led up to the event.

On Women and Violence

Race Treason Behind Prison Walls
