Anti-Doxxing Resources

June 04, 2020

In the wake of widespread anti-police rebellion in the streets, we’ve seen the expected repression by police with mass arrests, chemical weapons, and inflated charges. While it’s been heartening to see police forced to retreat in some situations – resulting in short term autonomous and free zones – we also know that in some cases police make a tactical choice not to engage. They know that they can build cases after the fact by combing through video and photos – both what they take and what they…

New Zine: Always Against The Tanks

November 22, 2019

This new zine explores the resurgence of Tankism and authoritarian Marxism. If you have been confused by the resurgence of hammer and sickle imagery on the Internet, this zine will help explain the phenomenon. From the intro: This zine was compiled with the goal of making accessible a critique of “tankism,” a reactionary ideological position that seems to be trending on the Left. Much like the alt-right, which in 2015 appeared to be an internet phenomenon with little potential to gain a foothold…

New Zine: Mutual Fire Brigade

April 21, 2019

“Mutual Fire Brigade” was written by Cindy Milstein for the March 2019 issue of DOPE 5, an anarchistic magazine published in so-called London, and distributed free to those behind bars and those without homes. See dogsection.org/dope/. Jeff Clark kindly and beautifully transformed it into this zine. Here’s an excerpt: “The question isn’t how to become ambulance chasers in relation to suffering, or how to accelerate social collapse. Rather, it concerns our desire and growing capacity to self…

Anarchist Zines & Pamphlets Published in January

February 16, 2019

First off, sorry for not publishing one of these round-ups for the past two months. Second, we’d like to encourage people to get into the habit of producing zines. While the trend towards using the Internet as a primary means of communication (particularly as “outreach”) for the anarchist space has been happening consistently over the past decades, it seems that noticeably fewer zines and publications are being produced. There could be any number of different reasons for it, but we find it to be…

Mail Order Update

February 15, 2019

We have recently experienced a series of issues (broken/unrepairable printer and changes in the fee structure from our ordering service) that have made it so that we can no longer do mail order in the same way we had done in the past. We are still happy to provide physical copies of zines if you need them, but we have had to temporarily shift how we do mail order. If you are unable to print zines yourself (everything on this site is available as a PDF), we can provide zines. Please fill out our…

Our Grief is a Starting Point in the Fight against Fascism

January 05, 2019

This short zine, designed by Eff Charm, features an op-ed piece written by Cindy Milstein for Truthout.org in response to the Tree of Life Synagogue murders in Pittsburgh in late October 2018. It looks at, to quote from the zine, “reclaim[ing] our capacity to be fully human in all our messy beauty and specifically, as counter to this messy, ugly time period. We can self-determine to mourn and organize together.” Excerpt: “Mourning and organizing offer a renewed promise of social love in how we…
