NO!: Against Adult Supremacy
WITHIN WHITE SUPREMACIST CAPITALIST PATRIARCHAL CULTURES OF DOMINATION, CHILDREN DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS – bell hooks
Every hierarchy, every abuse, every act of domination that seeks to justify or excuse itself appeals through analogy to the rule of adults over children. We are all indoctrinated from birth in ways of “because I said so.” The flags of supposed experience, benevolence, and familial obligation are the first of many paraded through our lives to celebrate the suppression of our agency, the dismissal of our desires, the reduction of our personhood. Our whole world is caught in a cycle of abuse, largely unexamined and unnamed. And at its root lies our dehumanization of children.¹
STINNEY DISTRO is an ambitious attempt to bring prominence to the many diverse voices speaking up. Not confined to timid or patronizing top-down reforms, but strident advocacy for wholesale liberation.Full zine library and book available at https://stinneydistro.wordpress.com
Accounting for Ourselves
Sexual assault and abuse continue to plague anarchist circles and spaces. In response, we’ve developed processes to hold each other accountable outside of the state. But why can’t we seem to get them right? This essay examines the context in which these community accountability models emerged and analyzes the pitfalls we’ve encountered in trying to apply them. To move beyond the impasse around sexual violence within our scenes, we need to challenge the idea of community itself and take our resistance in new directions.

Building Towards an Autonomous Trans Healthcare
by Power Makes us Sick collective
Power Makes us Sick (PMS) is a feminist collective focusing on autonomous health care practices and networks. PMS seeks to understand the ways that our mental, physical, and social health is impacted by imbalances in and abuses of power. We can see that mobility, forced or otherwise, is an increasingly common aspect of life in the anthropocene. PMS is motivated to develop free tools of solidarity, resistance, and sabotage that respond to these conditions and are informed by a deep concern for planetary well-being.Anti-copyright notice: reprint and distribute this publication and the ideas contained within it freely, spread the word, but do not attempt to profit from it personally.

The Future Generation
By China Martens
China Martens started her pioneering mamazine The Future Generation in 1990. She was a young anarchist punk rock mother who didn’t feel that the mamas in her community had enough support, so she began publishing articles on radical parenting in an age before the internet.The anthology of her zine, The Future Generation: The Zine-Book for Subculture Parents, Kids, Friends & Others, was first printed in 2007 and has been out of print for many years. Covering sixteen years, it uses individual issues as chapters, focusing on personal writing, and retaining the character of a zine that changed over the years—from her daughter’s birth to teenagehood and beyond.

Recovery and Radicalism
by e and k
The writers of this piece are 2 people of different genders and sexualities coming from different places across the continental U.S., both involved in some way or another in a recovery process and radical activism. This is written in an attempt to point to a diverse range of experiences and thoughts from activists “in recovery” (whatever that means to the individual) while also acknowledging the legitimate reasons people use drugs. We also hope that this can serve as a resource to other radicals, seeking or in recovery but confused by or facing difficulties in the process.
