The un-seen, un-wanted, work of Freedom, or, "what we can learn from the Israelites".

I grew up on vivid Bible stories etched brightly on my child's mind. Daniel hanging with the Lion in the Lion's Den; Jonah running from God's orders then ending up in a whale belly; horses, chariots and Egyptians drowned in a Moses parted Red Sea.

One story that makes me think of why “anarchy” is difficult, is one where the Israelites demanded a human king from God.

If you're sitting comfortably, then I'll begin.

Mellow Yellow #4 @ Auckland Zinefest!

Mellow Yellow issue no. 4 is out now! We launched it this year at Auckland Zinefest last Saturday 16th July; it was probably our first time hosting a stall together, PLUS bamboo spoke in a panel discussion on "Zines as tools for political resistance" which was pretty choice. Response has been great, apparently we sold over 40 copies of number 4 that day alone, plus tens of nos.1 , 2 and 3. People also took well to our awesome "..Asian Invasion + BMW" fundraiser. Then on Sunday, the Mellow Yellow crew spoke about their experiences behind making Mellow Yellow together at the "Zines for the revolution" session hosted at Blackheart infoshop, a new anarchist-vegan friendly zines/clothing space on K Road, Auckland. Lots of lols and good fun.

Anyway, check out pics from our weekend (most downloaded off Auckland Zinefest page:

If you'd like a copy of the zine, drop us a message at Out-of-Aotearoa folks: we do our best to send you copies as much as we can afford postage from our fundraised koha, so do get in touch.
