Starship Eden by Seyfried and Ziska

858454

Starship Eden is an excellent comic book by Carlsen Comics (Hamburg) from 1999 by Gerhard Seyfried and Franziska “Ziska” Riemann. I ran into at the bookstore in King Library, cost $2, pendejos!

The leaders of the capitalist West, led by President Pumpkin of the US,  build a huge spaceship to carry them and their luxury items to an Earth-like planet, leaving the rest of the world to their own devices. While in Berlin an imperfect but honest anarchism survives a resurgence of fascism, exits the death spiral of systemic scarcity and creates an urban utopia, the presidents and the pope learn that all their wealth can’t protect them from the hardships of space conquest. Check it out on Amazon! Besides, comics are a great way to learn a new language, for those of you who can’t read German.

El Sonecito

Just found out about this dude, he makes excellent corridos! Sonecito, or Sergio Campos, evokes the music style prohibited by the church and authorities in the 18th century because it, and its cousin the copla, was a folk style that criticized the powerful in its time. Check one of his songs out at El Chamuco!

Fire to the Prisons #12 is in print!

Need something to read, jolines? Fire to the Prisons, which has been documenting the frustrating work of anarchist direct action –yes kids, sometimes less than peaceful –sometimes yearly, sometimes biennially, sometimes not at all since 2007, is back in action. Print your own damn copies and distribute it!

The paper includes some good writing about Ferguson (including a link to directly aid detained Ferguson citizens), Kobani, gentrification, looting and rioting, and ecological disaster. There’s also the usual list of reported resistance actions against the state and its agents down to little things like prisoners hitting their jailers back, something you also read in Black Seed, etc.

Like what you read? Why don’t you get off your ass, measure your system and contexts, and write for them? They’d probably like the help!
