Books / Zines and Distros
Sidenote/Idea: Even though the Portable Zine Library (and film collection) is mainly inteded to serve the biketour participants' needs. But (other from our internal Booklet and Cookbook) they might also be a great thing to share with projects along the way! This is why it could be useful to have especially the Zines as a digital copy / folder as well!
Places to find and print::::::
- collection in English and Spanish here http://www.anti-politics.net/distro/
- www.activedistributionshop.org/ (you have to pay but good for browsing and some stuff as cheap as printing yourself)
- http://tempestlibrary.com/ (in Berlin)
- http://theanarchistlibrary.org/ (pdfs in different formats )
- http://www.alphabetthreat.co.uk/pasttense/page2.html - mostly london area radical history, but some good examples of commons land struggles and also some zines covering other regions.
Particular titles / resources:::::::
It would be great to have a mini collective media library with us for the 2013 tour.. Please add in any particular titles which link in with this year's tour, or have useful practical info for the biketour (e.g. about fixing bikes, info about regions we are passing through, etc..).
