Quelles resources pour le soin et le soutien collectif?

A new zine is published in French by Collectif Marmite, artwork and typesetting by withdrawn. The zine was a project in 2020 but due to life and communication it is only published now in its entirety… It mostly gives tools for individual and group care within activist communities. The title is translated to English ‘which resources for care and collectif support?’. Enjoy the read. Power. Love. Care.

And social movements more broadly. More actually we talked about Covid-19 as a world perezhivanie, his introduction of Project as a unit of analysis as well as the End of the American Century. Enjoy the watch!

Tinkers Bubble. On the land, off the grid

A new zine on Tinkers Bubble, an off-grid community that lives off the land without the use of fossil fuels. After the debacle of COP26 it is more clear than ever that capitalism is on the highway to ecological collapse.

Over (arbeiders)klasse geschreven

Recentelijk las ik enkele werken waar de kwestie van klasse centraal bij staat. Het opgroeien in de onderbuik van de samenleving, en dat ook nog eens weten te verwoorden, is geen evidentie. Het blijft vandaag toch veeleer uitzonderlijk om mensen te lezen wiens afkomst we kunnen beschrijven als working class poor. Terwijl Edouard Louis’s En finir avec Eddy Bellegeuelle een internationale bestseller is, is er nog een ander werk dat mijn aandacht trok: Chav Solidarity van D. Hunter.

Zine: on Hold on. mental battles, changing weather, solid grounds

A new zine published by e. A zine on starting out for a walk in autumn and finding that you might walk home in winter… Or something that falls poetically under the same name. Mental battles, changing weather, solid grounds. Not much more to say as an intro. Yes, it’s about inhabiting nature and moving along. Some pictures, some photo’s, some rambling (thoughts), and mountains! Keep on walking. Keep on walking. Keep on walking.

Review van een klein boekje

Tada! A new web-o-space!

hi, this is the first post… Nothing much to say though, this website will be used to post and collect some stuff that has been made by with_drawn. A fresh out of the coronavirus-lock-down emerging small collective. We’ll see what it brings us and, of course, you! Quite exciting. If you want to participate you can contact us at: with_drawn@riseup.net. So far so good. Also proud to announce that with_drawn#1: Communal Care and with_drawn#2: Covid-19 en circuits van Kapitaal will be available offline at the end of this week. If you want the real stash and not the digital stuff, you can drop us a line and we can see if we can work something out.

I didn’t intend to write a lot, so this is it for now… Oh yeah, if you fancy something made by us or just want to peek at the content, you can always give feedback. All welcome. POWER. LOVE. CARE.
