Anarchy Comics – Issue 1.

Originally published by Last Gasp Comix.

36 Pages – English. Some of it rhyming.

First published in 1978.

A collection of comic strips about anarchy and anarchism, including historical strips on Kronstadt, the Spanish Civil War anarchist air force(!), Nestor Makhno, humorous satire on modern daily life, the ubiquitous detourned advertisements and some stuff I don’t even know how to describe but I’m sure Robert Crumb would have liked it. Sadly the only issue in our archive and possibly the only issue produced.

The Vancouver Five: Armed struggle in Canada by Jim Campbell

Published by Bastard Press

In 1982, Direct Action (aka the Squamish Five or the Vancouver Five) were responsible for the destruction of Cheekeye-Dunsmuir dam substation on Vancouver Island, four million dollars worth of damage to the Litton Industries plant outside Toronto the fire-bombing of a video store specialising in violent pornography in Vancouver. The group were caught, tried and convicted and spent most of the eighties behind bars. This pamphlet collects a summary of the Direct Action’s acts and motives and the effectiveness of their strategies by a member of the groups the Five grew from, and includes the original Communique of the Litton bombing and its addendum by Direct Action themselves.

On a proposed communist settlement: A new colony for Tyneside or Wearside by Peter Kropotkin

Published by Bastard Press

English – 8 pages

First published in the Newcastle Daily Chronicle in 1895

In On a proposed Communist settlement, Kropotkin warns a group of communists about the dangers isolated communes face in the real world. With clear and precise insight developed by his early work as a geographer, he outlines the risks such communities face when starting, the problems existing social and economic models have in small numbers and the difficulties faced by the isolation and separation from day-to-day life and the literal invasion faced by those who do manage to achieve success.
This edition also features a preface by Sydney anarchist and ecologist Graham Purchase.
