Black Seed Five - a request for papers
From Black Seed
The last issue of Black Seed came out a year and a half ago. Collectives come and collectives go. The need for a vigorous, engaged, and different kind of Green Anarchism remains. Issue five has, as its theme, this idea of a new start. A new beginning.
How do we start fresh? Do we begin with a statement of first principles? Do we look at the exciting specifics of the #NODAPL movement as a possible re-framing of what green anarchist activity aspires to? Who should we learn from? What are they saying (and who is translating)? We have many foundational texts to work from, but which are relevant today?
If this conversation interests you, participate! Black Seed is a long-run (5-10,000 copies), "print only" (only online after the next issue is released), newspaper-style, green anarchist publication that travels all over North America. It echoes the format and style of green anarchist and eco-defense publications from past eras. It uses newsprint as a defense against the impermanence of texts and ideas on the Internet and as a lightest-possible-touch ecological footprint. You can read our past issues on http://theanarchistlibrary.org. We intend for issue five to reach you during the summer of 2017 and you can reach us at Black Seed email.
