Radical Zines Launch

A launch event for three new zine titles, presented by The Freedom Shop in collaboration with Wellington Zinefest, PAPA and Counterfutures.

On Thursday the 18th of November we will be launching THREE new zines in collaboration with Wellington Zinefest, People Against Prisons Aotearoa, Counterfutures and the How To Talk To Your Racist Uncle team.

 The zines are:

'How To Talk To Your Racist Uncle' by Gaayathri Nair, illustrated by Lenny Zook.Check out their upcoming workshop on 27 November at the Aro Community Centre.

'Daring to Think of Something Better' -by People Against Prisons Aotearoa.

'Landlord Neutral 2030' by Counterfutures, illustrated by Pinky Fang. 

The plan:

Doors open at 5:30.

Launch begins at 6:10pm.

Expect ten minutes of kĊrero on each zine, and the chance to buy copies before and after.

The Freedom Shop will be open for you to pick up other radical zines and books, patches, bags, you name it.

This event is open to everyone. Tickets aren't required but we will ask attendees to sign in using the app or pen-and-paper record. Please wear a mask if you are able.

Note: November 18th is remembered by many in Aotearoa as Neil Roberts Day. Neil was an anarchist punk rocker who attempted to blow up the Whanganui police computer in 1982, and died in the process.
