People's War: Women's War "Two texts by Comrade Parvati of the Communist Part of Nepal (Maoist)
It is time and again seen that women masses do come in a tide to participate in revolutionary movements producing some potential women leaders. But this tide along with the prospective women leaders seems to recede once the revolution is completed or is defeated. The chief reason behind this phenomenon is the existence of the concept of private property. As long as private property remains women will always have to go back to tend individual household activites, maintaining private property for men, no matter how many social revolutions take place. Hence the concept of continuous revolution until one reaches communism has strategic relevance for women, because it is only then that private property gets abolished, unleashing the creativity of women."

Phases of the Moon
(IL/US)
"Where do I begin when describing this zine? There’s sort of a lot going on. Phases of the Moon is essentially a journaled-out recollection of the pregnancy and birthing process. The zine alternates it’s entries, allowing both Stacie and Alexander to give their own versions, of each event. Having two perspectives on such an important experience gives a full range of thoughts and feelings, as Stacie and Alexander, a pair of homeless vegan punk rock kids, try to learn about life and make some of the most difficult choices they’ve ever had to make. Excitement, fear, anticipation, depression, joy, and every other emotion seem to make an appearance at some point as they work their way through the pregnancy, the birthing, and the ultimate decision to give their child up for adoption. All these things make this zine very personal. But at the same time there is a lot of information packed in here which gives the zine a very political slant as well. Information and discussion about the medical industry, the ways in which pregnant women are treated within a patriarchy, and other such topics pop up every few pages, forcing you to not only understand the specific situation of these two people, but also question the entire medical system in our country. This is one of the more unique zines I’ve read in awhile, and while some may not agree with all the decisions and opinions that take place within it, I think everyone can appreciate the chance to hear someone’s story and think about some pretty important topics." Quoted and available to order from Loop Distro.

"Placenta is a well-written and informative punk rock/vegan parenting zine written by a lovely grrrl named Rosa-Maria. It is contributor based although Rosa-Maria also writes a lot for it as well. Inside issue #1 you will find: Eva's homebirth (Rosa-Maria and David's little girl) written from Rosa-maria's perspective as well as from David's perspective, post-partum herb bath, early breastfeeding chronicles, an article called "Thrifty mama" about things you'll supposedly "need" to have for your baby (and how to get around some of these supposed "needs" which are just traps for consumeristic American parents-to-be), an ongoing feature called "Rocker mom vs. Soccer mom", which will discuss why  the writer considers themselves punk and how they raise their kids "punk rock style", top 5 albums to listen to with little humans, as well as a recipe for vegan chilli "for the masses" as well as vegetable soup "for the masses" and finally, a punk parent resource guide! Whew! Even if you're not punk or a parent you'll find this to be an interesting read, if nothing else for the different perspective.  And if you're a punk rockin' parent you can *even* contribute to this zine so check it out for sure!"

It is about what happened and also how I am alive and surviving just fine...” I think that paragraph really sums it up pretty well...

Parallel Lines
Performance Project

(MA/US)



 


"And for me, zines are performative: a collection of acts and postures I've chosen to include, not the total me, and yet all the same a very true extension of that self." This is a wonderfyl split zine between Wendy (from Subject of Change) and Lauren (from Hard as Nails and Quantify). Their questions on gender identity and body politics (employing postmodern and deconstructivist theory, oh yes Judith Butler) are indeed puzzling. They ask: " How can we talk with clarity about ambiguity itself?" Discussions on safe spaces, thoughts on race and racism, multiculturalism, zine reviews etc. make this zine one of my favorites.
