Cracking the System

cracking the system - a zine inspired by the april2008 initiative

what links a bomb shelter in russia, a shop in the netherlands, a monumental building in germany, a house in geneva, a villa in greece?

the squatting movement, that's what! all over the world people squat to create residential and social space. in europe, despite increasing repression, autonomous centres still exist in many places and even more are being born.

this zine is in english but most of the articles published are also translated into different languages - so why not make your own zine?

we hope these articles will encourage more squats, social centres, more resistance, more rage, more love....

note - it is designed not to be read online but rather to be printed out doublesided. feel free to photocopy and distribute!
