Ill Will Editions is a relatively new multilingual zine-making project currently based in Berlin. Our focus is on anarchy, anti-politics, proletarian insurrection, trans-feminism, afropessimism, anti-prison & anti-cop activity. We envision this project as a contribution to a transatlantic circulation of theory, local analyses, and exchange around the varied forms that revolt and rebellion has taken and will continue to take.
Everything we publish can be downloaded in readable and printable PDF versions on our blog: ill-will-editions.tumblr.com
With giant banners, booming bass drums and machine gun fire of a snare drum we gathered in front of the downtown Jackson jail/sheriff's office, where prisoners are held for up to a year, to condemn prison society and celebrate the new year with the prisoners. We started on the street pounding out rhythms from behind our 2 giant banners. The prisoners were flashing their cell lights on and off and whooping at us. We Climbed the stairs to the court yard where we were not 20 feet from the nearest cells, some of which had things like "Help me please, god help yourself" scrawled on the windows.
