(readable version. printable version soon.)
a contemplation on the modification of diy culture from self-sustainability and creativity to a sell-able commodity, and the desire to demand money for and copyright all of our ideas. also, a few simple, copyright-free crochet patterns.

annual south side ara zine #4 (may 2012 - april 2013): tinley park edition
(this link goes directly to the readable version. for the printable version, visit the south side ara blog.)
we took on designing and laying out this year’s south side ara zine. from the south side chicago anti-racist action blog:
"South Side ARA has had a busy year. This zine is a taste of some of the people we pay attention to, actions we’ve participated in or support, and ideas at the forefront of militant anti-fascism, from April 2012 to April 2013. This is our 4th annual zine and we hope you’ll copy, distribute, and talk about what’s in here. More importantly, we hope you’ll watch out for those people outed in here and start acting, as you can, to fight fascism, racism, sexism, anti-semitism, islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, ageism, capitalism, and all oppression. This zines content is extremely similar to three before it, except this issue also contains a somewhat large portion that relates to the militant disruption of a white supremacist event in Tinley Park, IL last May by antifascists. This incident led to the arrest and imprisonment of five antifascists known as the “Tinley Park 5”,  or the “TP5”. The zine features the original communique, attendee information, private email correspondence, theoretical analysis of the incident, and support info for the Tinley Park 5.”
we took our time trying to make this zine not only visually appealing and easy to read and follow, but we packed as much information and as many updates as we could. we hope you enjoy it!

ZINE LIBRARY!

though quite modest, our “zine library” page is fully functional! we will continue to post zines on tumblr as we make them, but they all can now be found on our categorized, alphabetized list here, or on the top of our homepage under “zine library.”

all of the zines we make are formatted for printing and folding, so they’re ready to be downloaded, read, printed and shared. speaking of sharing, if you have any zines that you would like formatted for printing, get in touch with us and we’ll gladly impose them for you.

and, as a quick note, if you come across anything in our zine library that you have authored and would like credit where there is none, or would like it removed, please contact us and we’ll make that happen.

happy reading!
