It's that new post-HeartattaCk

worth reading. I expect to be distributing this from now on. Their
website is here.
MOMENTS OF STRUGGLE - An Illustrated Introduction to Some Anarchist History .20p/ppd .60p//€1/$1
Great little pocket-sized comic by Isy Morgenmuffel. Includes the Russian Revolution & Spanish Civil War.
MORGENMUFFEL 15 .60p/ppd .£1//€2/$2
This one is about Isy's summer adventures which are many. Like
me, she's been taking proper holidays (in addition to the catering
at activist festivals she usually does) and discovered Wainwright
for the first time on a visit to the Lake District. I'm not surprised
his stuff would appeal to her. I like it too. She's also been
to Cornwall & Latvia the latter of which sounded less appealing.
I need to be reminded that in other parts of the world, nazis
at gigs is the norm. Updates about the Cowley Club were interesting
- the zine starts with an illustrated page on the ace free skool
they've got going. There is a familiarly depressing section on
the current situation of Brighton's Cowley Club social centre
which is struggling in many ways and has faced everything from
volunteer theft to attacks by teenagers and financial difficulties.
16 .80p/ppd .£1//€2/$2
The Anarchist Teapot caters at the G8 in Rostock and the climate
change protest camp at Heathrow. It's the details that are particularly
fun in this issue - like the e-coli mascot they have hanging from
the rear-view mirror of their catering van.
MORGENMUFFEL 17 .60p/ppd .£90//€1.50/$2
Climate Camp '08, a trip to the USA & more.
5 ppd .£1//€2/$2
Yes, a new issue of the beautifully designed and packed hardcore
music paper for Europe. Looks like this is a reflective issue.
More to come when I manage to read it properly.
WATERFIGHT 4 .50p / ppd .80p//€1.50/$2
Beautiful autobiographical zine by an Israeli vegan guy who came to London after a breakup.
WATERFIGHT 5 .50p / ppd .80p//€1.50/$2
Awesome critique of the contemporary animal rights movement and a suggestion for ways forward in making our activism more effective.
A ZINE ABOUT
WOMENS SELF DEFENCE ppd .£1//€2/$2
The drawing on the cover tells you that Isy Morgenmuffel is a
contributor. This has several contributors from The F Word website's
Catherine Redfern to Arika, who was one of my own feminist self
defence teachers. The zine includes personal stories, statistics
and illustrated guides to a few defensive moves. A great read
and happily future issues will also be produced.

I know, you had no idea that condoms weren’t vegan right?
Well it turns out that latex is a milk product but a couple of companies don't use the stuff. These are the best vegan condoms around.
