We find inspiration in many places.

In 2016, the Anarchist Radio Berlin (within the framework of the FdA) participated in a fundraising campaign that aimed to raise money for the purchase of a building in Cuba. The federation finally made a significant contribution.

The following anarchist zines and pamphlets were published over the last month or so. As always, we favor casting a wide net in these posts which means there are frequently things we don’t agree with included in these round-ups. Outside of actual face-to-face conversations, we favor the idea of different anarchist ideas coming into contact with each other via a robust print-based discussion. Perhaps it is a personal bias, but it seems preferable to the heavily Internet-based state of contemporary anarchist discourse.
