A pirate radio how-to guide published by Hooligan Press in London in April, 1987. The title comes from a quote from Chantal Paternostre, a Belgian anarchist who said it when arrested on trumped up terrorism charges. She worked for Radio Air Libre, a Brussels pirate radio station. She was eventually released from prison after more than a year detained: most of it in solitary confinement.

The first book ever written on this subject, African Anarchism was co-written by Sam Mbah and fellow Nigerian, I.E. Igariway. After dealing with questions such as what anarchism is and isn’t, this groundbreaking book introduces the reader to anarchistic elements in traditional African societies, with a focus on Nigeria. It also examines the influence of anarchism on African national liberation struggles, and the failure of State Socialist governments in Africa. The book addresses the ongoing social, economic and political crises caused by colonialism in Africa. The authors end by considering the future prospects and challenges for anarchism in Africa. Published in 1997, the book maintains its relevance today. African Anarchism is available in hard copy from the publishers See Sharp Press, and online.

No one can understand what is happening in the land of Palestine, not even those who have followed the bloody course of events involving the people who have lived there for so long. They face each other with hatred and suspicion, not just men and women, children and old people, but the very dust of the roads and the mud that covers them on rainy days, the asphyxiating heat and the stench of the sultriness.
There is no prospect of peace in sight. The ideal solution, at least as far as all those who have the freedom of peoples at heart can see, would be generalised insurrection. In other words, an intifada starting from the Israeli people, that is capable of destroying the institutions that govern them and of proposing peace based on collaboration and mutual respect with the Palestinian people directly, without intermediaries. But for the time being this perspective is only a dream. We must prepare for the worst. Continue reading Palestine, mon amour→
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Swedish Animal Liberation Front (ALF) has for decades been one of the most prominent and active branches of the international network of activists. Executing direct actions in the small country in Northern Europe to save animals from oppression and cruelty. 30 years has passed since the single mother-of-two Emelie E:son placed an ad in the local paper to find others who were willing to risk their own freedom rescuing animals in need. In the cover of darkness and with their faces covered to protect their identity, the activists have carried out thousands of actions and saved countless of lives. The group as often left the authorities puzzled and media has to this day been unable to get close enough to give the public a truthful portray of the people behind the masks. So who are these anonymous animal activists who save dogs from vivisection laboratories, hens from battery farms and release mink from fur farms? Why do they feel obliged to take go to such extremes to achieve their goal? Continue reading Until All Are Free – The Story of the Swedish Animal Liberation Front→
Publication of Tasos Theofilou book:
32 Steps or reports from the house of the dead
Prison is not only incarceration, pan optic surveillance, sensory
deprivation and the always present violence from above or from bellow.
Prison is not only the constant addiction to the sound of a heavy door
locking and unlocking. It is not only the endless rock of the yard. It
not only the use of smack to oppress any intention of revolting against
the brutality. It is not only the extreme poverty of the lumpen
proletariat, as well as the ostentatious wealth of illegal capitalism,
which exist to remind that class stratification is not absent even from
the basements of society. Continue reading Publication of anarchist-communist Tasos Theofilou book: 32 Steps or reports from the house of the dead – Greece→
