militant embraces

I write a 'zine called militant embraces, which is a 'zine about how we treat each other and how we present ourselves and our ideas. The target audience is definitely Anarchists, but I hope that anyone can get something out of my 'zine.

Before writing the first militant embraces (there are only two) I had been thinking a lot about the ways we all live our lives. The ways we attempt to balance our political beliefs with living in a capitalist, racist, patriarchal society. the ways we succeed and the ways we don't.

We obviously have to make some compromises in order to survive, but do we make the best choices in deciding where to do so? Do we hold onto some ways of treating each other that only actually serve to uphold our privilege? It's one thing to compromise by working for someone in order to survive, but can we use the need to compromise to justify treating each other badly?

I decided to write militant embraces after mulling all of this over in my mind for a very long time. It finally came to a point where I had to get it all down on paper! If you have read either militant embraces, I would love to hear any comment you may have. If you haven't read either militant embraces and would like to, please contact me!
