This is a neat zine that we found in a dusty old filing cabinent and thought was worth putting back into circulation.
The Radical Cheerbook is a collection of cheers intended to be used by radical cheerleaders at anti-capitalist protests. Radical Cheerleading is a tactic aimed at bringing energy and excitement to what might otherwise be stale and boring protests. An old radical cheerleaders website describes it as “…Protest+Performance. It’s activism with pom poms and middle fingers extended. It’s screaming FUCK CAPITALISM while doing a split.”
The Radical Cheerbook features dozens of cheers promoting anarchy, feminism, bikes, and more while opposing cops, patriarchy, and homophobes.
