Wingnut Kid Kits – cause saying all ages isn’t enough

Its always been important to me for radical and anarchist events to be all ages. I think multi-generational is key, and kids need to get to be included, and also their caretakers need to be available too!

Kids and their caretakers have a lot to contribute. But everyone else needs to do b our best to be welcoming.

Far too often radical and anarchist events are inaccessible in a multitude of ways. Often this includes being anti-kid. This will be deliberate sometimes, through rude comments, etc.

Other times the anti-kid attitude is subconscious or just from ignorance- meetings late, nothing for kids to do, etc.

Tied up in the anti-kid stuff is a multitude of oppressive intersectional stuff too.

Anyways, in an effort to up my contribution to kid friendly radical spaces, I want to put togethet Wingnut Kid Kits to distribute to all kinds of groups so they can give them out to kids when they show up to events.

If anyone has ideas for more stuff to be included please let me know. I’d also be interested in any donations of materials for the kits.

Stuff I need so far:

Manila envelopes that will fit 8.5 by 11 paper

Stickers

Crayons

Coloring book pages or activity pages

Generally speaking I would prefer content of semi-radical character, or at least that doesn’t perpetuate colonialist, gender binary, racist, sexist, heterosexist bullhockey. Would prefer content featuring a variety of types of people and radical themes.

If you have zines or drawings I could include please be in touch!

Ideas for more potential content appreciated. I’m thinking just stuff that isn’t too messy or bulky.

I also will include a letter to the caretaker. So if you have a zine or essay that might be something interesting or useful for caretakers who bring kids to radical events please let me know!

Anthology on Anarchist Collectives- now accepting submissions!

So I want to put together an anthology of essays on collective living in anarchist spaces. I haven’t seen one that was like a super helpful/informative guide or something with advice, shared lessons learned, examples of how different spaces pull it off. I’ll edit and try to have published via PM Press or AK Press.

Anyone who wants to submit a proposal should email me at mokarnage@gmail.com .

Please share this with folks you know who live in anarchist collectives. I will be emailing all the anarchist collectives I can get info on from slingshot, but I know that won’t reach everyone who might be interested in this project!

New Article on Profane Existence

http://profanexistence.com/2013/10/02/punk-isnt-spectacle-spectacle-is-capitalist-shit/

Just finished an article for Profane Existence on the Vice article about Miley Cyrus being punk.

untitled poem

Fast food strikes,
 martin luther king jr, civil rights, 
syria, military machine, people getting hustled, 
friend mugged, 
friends lost to drugs,
 stadium on sacred burial ground, vcu taking over this town, and the people in charge might be brown but they still work for capitalism and keeping their brothers and sisters down. 
 We need an autonomous zone. A place to call our own. Where they can't take our friends away and we can keep eachother safe. People are scared and rightly so wed rather live to see our babies grow. But we won't get that anyways the odds arent good. Babies don't last long in a nuclear gmo capitalist pesticide neighborhoods. If you make it past the police and the jails a life of working to be exploited awaits you. Until we work together the worst fate of our neighbor is ours too.
