British Anti-Roads Documents

A smattering of documents from the height of the British anti-roads struggle in the 1990s. Useful history and context for a too-often bit of history that helped inform anti-globalization rioting, eco-defense in North America and elsewhere, squatting across Europe, and indigenous solidarity projects.

Self-criticism (including some from the author of "Give Up Activism"), stories, interesting analysis, and campaigning posters and flyers.

If you're looking for a comprehensive history of the anti-roads movement, check out Down with Empire, Up with Spring part 1 ( or or the excellent comic book "Copse." We would also recommend Aufheben's "Politics of Anti-Roads Struggles, the Struggles of Anti-Roads Politics," but we got no love for state collaborators.
