Zines and Beyond: Independent Publishing in the Real and the Virtual Panelists: Michael Carter, Jim Fleming, Fly, Billy Miller and Seth Tobocman ABC No Rio 156 Rivington St. New York, NY 10002 Wednesday, October 14, 7-9pm “There is no apostrophe in zine. Zine is not short for magazine. A magazine is a product, a commercial commodity. A zine is a labor of love, producing no profit, and frequently a loss, of time at least. In a magazine, information is just another ingredient, thinly sliced layers to keep the cream filling of advertising from sticking together. Information is the reason a zine exists; everything else, down to the paper it’s printed on, is there to convey information.” -Larry-Bob, publisher of Holy Titclamps “The best zines, whatever their subject, do not inhabit a ready-made world; they create one unto themselves.” -Fred Wright, The History and Characteristics of Zines On Wednesday, October 14, 2009, ABC No Rio invites speakers with a wide range of backgrounds in zines, comics, radical book publishing and independent social networking sites to share their experiences and explore the role of DIY publishing. The five panelists will present their own experiences with independent media as well as consider its role for the distribution of political content in both the digital and print form.
"Art in Russia Under Attack: Artists, Curators on Trial" Konstantin Akinsha With trials, harassment, and other forms of intimidation, Russian authorities are striking out against curators and artists—who are, in turn, organizing projects that are increasingly provocative and political. During the Brezhnev years, when “unofficial” artists were under constant surveillance by “art critics wearing civilian clothes,” as the secret police were euphemistically called, Soviet intellectuals had a favorite joke: Bolshevik leader Lenin and Commissar of Enlightenment Lunacharsky pay a visit to an art exhibition in Moscow. Lenin looks at a painting by Malevich and asks, “What is this? Squares? Triangles? What does it mean? I can’t understand this art.” Lunacharsky replies, “To be honest, Vladimir Ilyich, I can’t understand it either.” That was the last Soviet government that didn’t understand art, goes the ironic punch line. Ironic because every Soviet government understood art very well: they understood that it had to be tightly controlled.
Jeff Luers Back in Custody After Mistaken Release PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Self-proclaimed anarchist Jeff Luers was released Friday after years in prison for setting trucks ablaze in an environmental protest — but he was back in custody within hours. Department of Corrections spokeswoman Jennifer Black said a mistake was made in calculating the amount to time off Luers could get for good behavior.
ANC Atrocity in South African Shack Settlement On Saturday 26 September, Abahlali baseMjondolo, the shack dwellers movement, was attacked in the Kennedy Road settlement, Durban, by an armed mob chanting ethnic slogans and backed, fully, by the ANC. [The following is based on a report from an Abahlali member in Durban] Kennedy Road is one of the poorest shack settlements in Durban. Local police appear to be entirely complicit in these attacks, as do local members of the African National Congress.

Studies in Transversality: Militant Research hosted by Micropolitics Research Group Tuesday October 13th PUBLIC LECTURE by Colectivo Situaciones (Buenos Aires) 17.00 – 19.00 Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre, Goldsmiths College Wednesday October 14th PUBLIC SEMINAR with A Traversad por la Cultura (Madrid), Colectivo Situaciones (Buenos Aires), Euromayday Hamburg, S.a.l.e. (Venice), Universidad Nomada (Barcelona), and many others. 14.00 – 19.00 RHB room 342 (in red brick main building), Goldsmiths College Studies in Transversality is a series of encounters between researchers, cultural workers, and organisers who are concerned with the contexts and consequences of their practices beyond their respective fields of specialisation, and who wish to open new lines of subjectivation. This session is the first of the year and brings together the practices of Colectivo Situaciones (Argentina), and a number of groups who are researching and organising around questions of creative labour, knowledge production and contemporary social movements in the UK and Europe today. Working through the notion of militant research, the session aims to examine the separations between university based academic research, cultural workers, and activists, the reason why these separations exist, and to share the working methods of these groups.

War Resisters League Protest at Grand Central Station http://www.warresisters.org/files/GrandCentralflyer.pdf
"The Yes Men Fix The World" Movie Premiere Dear friends, After a very busy week - including a fake New York Post with real news (for a change), the launch of a nationwide civil disobedience program, some prime-time news, and even a night in jail - we are very happy to be opening our new film in New York City next week (October 7). But we need your help spreading the word. Our film's all about TAKING ACTION. We're even accompanying the film's rollout with a very pesky program that's all about saying: we all know what's wrong, now let's DO something about it. But it all starts in New York. If it does well here, theaters throughout the US will want it too. If it doesn't, they won't.

Bishops Speaks Out On the Attacks on Abahlali baseMjondolo in Durban Bishop Rubin Phillip Democracy Under Attack in Kennedy Road I was torn with anguish when I first heard of the unspeakable brutality that has raged down on to the Kennedy Road shack settlement. In recent years I have spent many hours in the Kennedy Road settlement. I've attended meetings, memorials, mass ecumenical prayers and marches. I have had the honour of meeting some truly remarkable people in the settlement and the work of Abahlali baseMjondolo has always nurtured my faith in the power and dignity of ordinary people. I have seen the best of our democracy here. I have tasted the joy of real social hope here.
