  • Rosehip Medics Collective

    In this zine, we share the words of these individuals who have
    inspired us through their stories, their work and their vision. The
    anthology is divided into two sections – the first explores healthcare
    workers creating change and finding paths to patient directed care
    within the healthcare system, while the second celebrates moments
    of challenging oppressive systems, subverting ineffective care, and
    building alternative networks of mutual aid and support.

  • The Anarchist Library

    When central authority fails in socially crucial tasks, mutual aid, solidarity, and grassroots organization frequently arise as people take up slack on the basis of informal networks and civil society organizations. We can learn something important about the possibility of horizontal organization by studying such experiments.

  • The Final Straw

    The Final Straw's interview with Elliot of Asheville Survival Program, M of Asheville for Justice and Moira about the water crisis that started on December 24th, the city’s response, how mutual aid stepped up to distribute water and more.

  • Asian American Feminist Collective

    With the COVID-19 pandemic neither behind us or solely ahead of us, this zine offers a way to make meaning of the coronavirus crisis through long-standing practices of care that come out of Asian American histories and politics. We bring together first-hand accounts and analyses from our communities, including health and service workers and caregivers on the frontlines, students, people living with chronic illness, journalists, and organizers.

  • Libcom.org & the Edmonton Small Press Association

    This piece of writing comes out of a series of discussions which occurred on the forums of libcom.org. It was repeatedly raised that depression, mental illness, and emotional stress are very common amongst libertarian political activists. Furthermore, suffering from mental illness as someone who is politically active often comes with its own set of complications. Sometimes the wider anarchist/activist community is supportive and helpful. Other times, we can feel just as alienated amongst fellow anarchists as we do from the rest of capitalist society.

  • Roar Magazine and William C. Anderson

    Could the revolutionary intercommunalism of the Black Panthers provide an answer to the state's purposeful neglect of vulnerable communities during disasters?

  • Roar Magazine and Brian Tokar

    The theory and praxis of social ecology remains our best hope to fend off a dystopian future and meaningfully reshape the fate of humanity on this planet.

  • Indigenous Action

    We offer this ‘zine in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020. Our unsheltered relatives cannot simply “stay home if they are sick” and “constantly wash their hands” as instructed by callous politicians who, predictably, had no plans to ensure the wellbeing of our relatives.

  • Indigenous Action

    This is a quick set-up shelter that is weather proof and extremely lightweight (about 1lb 5 ounces without pole & stakes). While there are several designs for Tyvek shelters, we found most of them unclear and too complicated for our needs.

  • Rosehip Medic Collective

    This zine provides a basic introduction to herbalism alongside a collection of home remedies for common health problems. The information is organized into broad categories based on body parts (head, abdomen, etc) and then from there conditions and symptoms. It’s easy to use and a good introduction to DIY healthcare.

  • Indigenous Mutual Aid

    We decided to create this guide as we found that most resources currently available for COVID-19 Mutual Aid organizing were insufficient compared to discussions with other Mutual Aid projects and our own experiences working with two Indigenous Mutual Aid groups (Kinłani Mutual Aid & Navajo and Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief). Aside from this guide, we highly recommend that you talk directly with other Mutual Aid organizers to get a sense of what organizing frameworks may work best in your area.

  • Roar Magazine

    The threat of catastrophic man-made climate change can no longer be considered a distant prospect. It is already here.

  • Mutual Aid Disaster Relief

    We share these lessons, knowing that there are many like us: individuals, collectives, organizations, networks, and movements that lovingly, boldly do the work of revolution, striving to ground that work in an ethic of care and mutual aid. Disasters may soon become the new normal. There will be many times on the paths ahead of us when there aren’t easy answers. But we want to share with you what we gleaned from our time doing this work, in hopes that you can build off of the successes and avoid the mistakes of previous iterations of this type of organizing.

  • Boise Mutual Aid

    Do you ever spend time thinking about where the food you eat, or the clothes you wear come from? What about the labor and materials that went into building your house or your car? Left to fend for ourselves without the comforts of community, few among us would survive a week. None of us would be able to provide the food, medicine, clothing, shelter, and everything else our lives depend on. We need each other.

  • The Jane Addams Collective

    One cannot expect a rebellion, any rebellion, against any authority, to come without hardship relative to one’s own already desperate condition. Many have died and sacrificed for the struggles for liberation we hold in our hearts, and those who bear witness also bear scars.

  • Cindy Milstein

    In mid-November 2018, smoke from the hellfires of so-called California drifted to my home base, so called Michigan, as humans and nonhumans on the West Coast struggled to breath, struggled not to die from the latest “historic” new normal of capital/state-fueled climate catastrophe.

  • Mutual Aid Notes

    The present wave of mutual aid work is at a crossroads. A solid foundation for future work has been established, but it is vital that groups avoid stagnant patterns, non-profit and electoral co-option, or settling into a wholly reactive pattern of responding only when attacks intensify.

  • Mutual Aid Notes

    This zine is the second in a series that explores and critiques the budding movement of mutual aid groups around the Pacific Northwest. Our own experiences, observations, and
    research are synthesized with accounts gained from networking with other groups near and far. The first zine explored mutual aid’s history and theory, while this zine will dive deeper into the various enemies and allies mutual aid crews may encounter.

  • Boise Mutual Aid

    Our efforts are only possible through widespread community participation and support. Thank you for getting more involved! This manual will give you an idea of different ways to get plugged in to our weekly food and survival gear distribution. We aspire to expand and create additional ways mutual aid can be practiced in our community. If you have any ideas on how to do that, take the lead knowing that our community will support you!

  • The New York Review & Molly Crabapple

    Natural disasters have a way of clarifying things. They sweep away once-sturdy delusions, to reveal old treasures and scars.

  • Indigenous Action

    Why can we imagine the ending of the world, yet not the ending of colonialism? We live the future of a past that is not our own. It is a history of utopian fantasies and apocalyptic idealization. It is a pathogenic global social order of imagined futures, built upon genocide, enslavement, ecocide, and total ruination.

  • Blue Ridge ABC

    Dear Friend, we hope this message reaches you in good health and spirits. We are writing to you from a changed world—one most of us barely recognize. In a few short weeks, our daily routines of work, school, childcare, recreation, and simple things like shopping for basic necessities have been radically unmade and reformed in the shape of a new normal.

  • Strangers In A Tangled Wilderness

    Post-civilization theory posits that while civilization is, at its root, unsustainable and undesirable, the way we must move is forward, not backwards. This zine collects together six essays written by Margaret Killjoy that first appeared in the magazine Alan Moore’s Dodgem Logic between 2010-2011.

  • Rosehip Medic Collective

    While traveling, we are exposed to all the illnesses and problems that trouble us when residing in our own communities, but also by everyone else’s.

  • 18MR and UCONN AAASI

    A free colorful zine full of archival images, forgotten histories, and critical analysis. Unmasking Yellow Peril is a collaboration between 18 Million Rising and the Asian and Asian American Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut. With this project, we seek to ground ourselves in the long history of Yellow Peril, uncover its main forms, and resist it in the time of COVID-19.
