On November 1st, 2012, the Cream City Collectives was evicted by yuppies who were hating on our swag. Their windows are no longer with us. Former CCC volunteers and their friends are trying to raise money for a new social center for the purposes of crushing the yuppie insects and all the other fun stuff the CCC used to do. We have developed one of those internet things so you can get schweet prizes for donating.
In the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, and in the midst of the sequent nationalist fervor, Boston radicals came together to form the Boston Anarchists Against Militarism (BAAM) Coalition. Through interviews and an extensive study of BAAM’s public statements, activities, and publications, this history explores the evolution of BAAM from an anti-war coalition into a general union of Boston anarchists. The lessons of the past decade are useful to today’s generation of activists as they grapple with the questions of political organization and activity in the struggle against global capitalism.
No-Gods-No-Masters.com is a non-profit anarchist t-shirt shop founded 3 years ago. We offer over 2000 political designs with an anti-capitalist message. T-shirts are printed on a "on-demand" basis and the printing quality is superior than screen-printed t-shirts. All incomes accumulated from our sales are donated to causes related to anti-capitalist struggles. We regard that our customers are buying t-shirts with a political message because they are sympathetic with the causes behind the messages expressed on the t-shirts. Therefore, we believe that their money should contribute to support these same causes.
Black Cat Press is pleased to announce the publication of "Revolution" by Carlo Cafiero for the first time ever in English (indeed nor has it ever been published as a complete volume in the original Italian!). The book brings what is certainly Cafiero's most complete, original work to English-speaking audiences for the first time.
Tangled Roots: Dialogues exploring ecological justice, healing, and decolonization is a new book published by Matt Soltys, longtime activist and journalist from Guelph, Ontario. The book features 12 of the most powerful interviews from Healing the Earth Radio, which aired from 2005 to 2010.
In 2009, the cops raided an anarchist house in Queens NY. Among other things, they stole every remaining copy of the Curious George Brigade book Anarchy in the Age of Dinosaurs, as well as all the digital backups. They never returned these things.
From 2001 until 2008 the Eugene Oregon collective that produced Green Anarchy magazine created the most exciting refresh of one of the oldest kinds of Anarchism, Green Anarchism. Instead of geography, ecology, & windmills Green Anarchy magazine presented anthropology, action, and crazed theory against civilization.
In librarianship today, we encourage voices from our field to join conversations in other disciplines as well as in the broader culture. People who work in libraries and are sympathetic to or directly involved in social justice struggles have long embodied this idea, as they make use of their skills in the service of those causes. Following in the tradition of works such as Activism in American Librarianship, 1962-1973; Revolting Librarians; and Revolting Librarians Redux, this title will be a look into the projects and pursuits of activist librarianship in the early 21st century.
Capitalism got you down? Have a vision for a world you want to help create, but can’t find the time and space you need to create it? Tired of working hard for someone else and not being able to enjoy the simple joys life has to offer? This may be your answer…
We periodically ask our readers and supporters to support us with a financial donation. We are hoping to raise $500 this Spring for our ongoing operations. We've been busy lately fixing technical problems, planning improvements for our tech infrastructure, and talking about how we can bring more original content in the future to our readers.
Checks and cash are accepted, but contact us to make special arrangements.
What we've been up to lately:
Server improvements and optimization: You may have noticed that the website hasn't been down very much in the past month. Dave and Chuck have been busy cleaning up the server, slaying evil spambots and otherwise optimizing the server and websites. This is necessary so we can make further tech improvements and have a stable environment to publish more original content.
Infoshop News: We recently started a project which will upgrade Infoshop News to the latest version of Drupal, a popular content management system. This will allow us to do more interesting things with Infoshop News, from multimedia to subject tagging. This new software will also help us prevent downtime problems. We expect this project to be finished by the end of Summer 2013.
Infoshop Library: This week we will resume adding content to the Infoshop Library (http://www.infoshop.org/Library), which has been relocated to new software on our site. Content from the old library will be re-added to the library in the next couple of months. We will also be planning ways for more volunteers to get involved with this project.
Infoshop OpenWiki: The wiki is currently offline, but the old wiki content will be migrated to the website in the next couple of months.
Infoshop Forums: The Infoshop Forums will be migrated to our Drupal website this summer. We haven't decided yet if old content and user accounts will be migrated.
If you'd like to help with any of this, please get in touch!
