Zine: Red Flags

Authoritarian ideologies ignore that the methods you use for radical change influence the radical change that you wind up creating.

All Shipwrecks Are State Crimes!

They try to prevent us from commemorating the dead and missing and remembering the crimes of the border regime. But we will never forget nor forgive! We will continue to stand united in solidarity!

Koçerata: Self-Organization and Social Ecology Under Fire

“Thinking of our communities as ecosystems allows us to understand that self-organization, connection with the land, co-existence of different identities, self-defense, and sustainable use of resources according to needs and in balance with the environment are all essential elements of…

The Land of Despair Sprouts with Hope

A comparative study of revolutionary theories and practices in Kurdish-led Rojava and opposition-held Syria – Öcalan to Aziz, democratic confederalism to LCCs – and a lament on the great cost of their failure to connect.

Dispatch from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec

After listening awhile, we explained Symbiosis. It was almost awkward—after their descriptions of their situation, principles, and intentions, it felt like we were parroting them. But such are the convergences, and this is grounds for unity.

The Antidote Writers Collective seeks to resist and counteract the poisons that course through the veins of our politics, our cultures, our movements, our relationships, ourselves.

We believe that a strong collective immune system is built through knowledge and understanding and that the struggle against division and repression requires building a new culture of discussion that goes beyond flat definitions, brittle ideologies, stubborn dogmas, idle preconceptions, and petty rivalries.

We will share knowledge with each other, aiming to build empathy, and in turn enable the emergence of genuine solidarity—one which does not demand uniformity across contexts, one which does not “include” you, but in which you include yourself.

In this spirit, we will provide a platform for a diverse set of voices, especially for those otherwise silenced or ignored in “mainstream” discussions. We want to hear from people engaged in radical struggles all over the world. We seek neither agreement nor conflict, but rather to identify issues at their roots, and to consider different radical approaches to their resolution. And though we at the Antidote Writers Collective have voices—and we will use them—we will not presume to speak for anybody.

On the contrary, we invite you to offer us new ways of thinking, new ways of seeing. It’s not about establishing a space for comfy ideological self-indulgence, but for questions, for a true diversity of voices and viewpoints, and for turning all of this into action.

One World. One Struggle.
