Some zines:

Tino Rangatiratanga;
The treaty of Waitangi Today (c1995)

Based on a collection of articles on Tino Rangitiratanga originally put out by the people of Pakaitore Marae, this booklet contains a clear history of the endlessly repeating Government treachery towards Maori in regards to the Treaty and has sections on the little-known Declaration of Independence of Aotearoa signed in 1835. It also has the real story behind John Ballance, Aotearoa's racist fascistic prime minister between 1890-93. Essential reading to stave off the media manipulation of history.
 

A Day Mournful and Overcast:
An “uncontrollable” from the Iron Column (2003)

Originally published in 1937 in the Valencia-based newspaper of the Iron Column (an Anarchist Militia unit of the Spanish Revolution), 'Nostros'. An Anarchist militant speaks out against the forced incorporation of the Militia into the Government's regular army, and against authoritarian society in general. Very poetic.




Hot Pantz: Do it yourself gynecology: Herbal Remedies (1998 reprint 2012)

A pillar zine put together by women in Montreal. It describes DIY uses of herbs for gynaecological health with advice and recipes and begins with the statement: "Patriarchy sucks. It's robbed us of our autonomy and much of our history. We believe that it's integral for women to be aware and in control of our own bodies. The recipes we present here have been known for centuries, passed down from mother to daughter, and have survived the censorship of the witch hunts. Our intent is simple and practical: to help break away from the medical establishment's tentacular grip on our bodies and our approaches to health and healing."


Museifushugi:
A brief history of Anarchism in Pre War Japan (199?)

A fascinating little intro into Japanese anarchism researched in Japan by Christchurch anarchist Matthew Turner. Great stories of individual anarchists' lives in particular, extremely valuable as a start to uncovering what seems a lost past of Japanese political history.





Mexico: The moon between the mirrors of the night
and the crystal of the day (1995)

Part-satire, part-political overview by the most eloquent of the EZLN's writers, 'Marcos' (the 'Sup'). Written on the 10th of June, 1995, in the Lacandona jungle, Chaipas, south-eastern Mexico, whilst in the midst of the EZLN (Zapatista National Liberation Army) struggle against the Mexican government that began on January 1, 1994. In three parts, the first a fable about the moon's origin, the second: “The Power as the Mirror and the Image”, the deceitful image of government, and third: “Neoliberalism and the Party State System”. Successful grass-roots indigenous rebellion is the hope of this short story/history/satire. 

Not Afraid of Ruins #1 (2008)

We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing this minute. A zine about depression, anxiety, capitalism, teen angst and taking care of each other.
