A zine from the NW, detailing the recent actions of the 'Imaginary Party'

stealing, sleep deprivation, sin,
politics, poetry, pretty pictures
awkwardness, anger, alcohol
existential crises, etc, etc, etc
there are no answers here. but there are guava trees and gender issues. read it already!
My original plan was to write an essay about women and their relationships.
The more I studied, the more questions I asked my friends, the more I realized I am probably more upset about the state of women’s relationships than they are.
I’m not sure how many issues of this zine there will be.
I only know they will all question what I have been taught to believe about men, what I have learned from women, and my observations and experience with both genders. read more »

from Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed Fall/Winter 2004/05
On amnesia and the colonization of memory, abandoning imagination and the misery that accompanies it. For online reading and source see link below.
The zine should be printed on a single piece of paper. Fold it half twice (long-ways first), staple it and use a letter opener or something to cut open the unstapled fold.

Andrea (N’Drea) was involved with Os Cangaceiros, a group of social rebels who refused the slavery of work and mercilessly attacked the prison system of France in the 1980’s and 90’s. In 1985, she learned that she had cancer. She underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Then in 1990, she walked out of the medical world for good to grasp her life and her death as her own. read more »
A collection of excerpts by Frere Dupont.

Quarter-page zine... so there is some cutting involved if you print it. read more »
This is an excellent zine talking about addiction, from all sorts of perspectives. It goes into the author's own experiences with addiction and kicking a heroin habit and most importantly talks about how communities can respond to someone struggling with addiction in a way that is helpful and non-judgmental. (Along the way, it offers radical/anarchist critiques of AA and 12-step programs, the moralism often attached to other people's substance use, and lots of other things.) Chock fulla insights and one fine zine.
A zine on self-injury, eating disorders, and sexualized violence. This zine lays open the author's struggle with internalized sexism by looking at the ways patriarchy has manifested itself in the author's body. Other articles connect her personal experiences with a broader, intersectional exploration of power within activist and punkrock communities she both embraces and attempts to hold accountable.
TRIGGER WARNING: this zine deals explicitly with self injury, eating disorders, and sexual assault. read with care.
