Memoir and critique; why we don the black mask and act collectively against the targets of capital and state.
“To counteract [leftist] silencing, we sought out our comrades from the heart of the black bloc and asked them to tell their side of the story: where they come from, why they participate, how they see the world.

As the expression goes, God only knows what devils we are: He can’t know anything else.”

“The book contains a number of interviews with some of Indiana’s long-term prison rebels, a brief overview of the rich history of prison struggle throughout the state, and thoughts from the editors about how prisoner solidarity has been and could be done.

An anonymous open letter signed by 25,000 people, laying out a radical critique of the “democratic transition” in 1970s Spain and setting the terms for a solidarity campaign should the Spanish State refuse to release the autonomous prisoners.

“This collection may not only to be viewed in terms of abortion rights, or even strictly in terms of the quest for women to have control over their bodies, but also in terms of any group of people face-up against the onslaught of modern-day slavery (in all its forms) taking control over their lives. Jane is an inspiration— a beautiful example that battles can be won without begging. Today they can be seen as a bold display of an effective underground organization operating with utter disregard for the letter of the law— women taking their lives into their own hands and taking responsibility for their actions, all the while without asking for anyone’s permission.”
A history of the clandestine abortion clinic run by Chicago feminists in the early 1970s.
