This is the first project of the Purple Daisy Distro. There are lots of awesome kids in Kelowna, so we thought we'd fuel their fire.
This project was inspired by two other zines we found. The Disorientation Manual for Evergreen State College (Olympia, Washington) and An Alternative Welcome Week Guide for McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario). We lifted heavily from both. So, thanks! We hope it'll inspire other similar projects!
This zine is great for people who are interested in feminism, but are intimidated by the jargon. As it is a mini-zine, they have to be cut and folded beforehand. If you don't know how to fold a mini-zine, there should be plenty of online videos showing you how.
Words included are: Feminism, gender, gender role, misogyny, patriarchy, queer, sex, & sexism (hey, it's mini!)
Goin' Veg--an all-in-one guide to vegetarianism and veganism. Pass it on!

In what is perhaps a first for Aotearoa Pakeha anarchists (please let us know if that isn't the case) 'From the Kitchen' is a zine devoted to the discussion of anarchist mens relationship/response to the feminist movement(s) and our own sexist behaviour. The zine isn't about pointing fingers but instead is done in the style of critical self-reflection by the authors about sexism in their own lives.
Topics in the first issue include:
Me(n) and Pornography
Slugs in the Sandpit - The Gendered politics of the garden
Meat Robots Unite read more »
Sometimes Things Get Confusing When You're Mentally Ill is a brief comix history of a revolutionary activist's struggles with depression, PTSD, abuse, marriage and fatherhood, recovery and struggling to reclaim a sense of self. It's cartoony but not light hearted. There is lots of potentially triggering stuff here. Consider yourself warned.
I created Absent Cause to explore topics that resonate with me and many people whose work I respect and admire: underground cultures, radical politics, hidden histories, feminist and queer sexualities, and chosen families; the gothic, vampirism, horror, dark music and paganism; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness, self-harm, body image and suicidal feelings; and the incredible array of ways they intersect. read more »
Contagious Liberation is a monthly newletter working group started out of the Portland Revolutionary Assembly, which is a anti-capitalist anti-authoritarian mutual aid network of groups in Portland, OR.
