March 2014 brought new publications on the territory ruled by the state called Romania. From many flyers and small booklets on different social issues to fanzines and books. Some of these are: Leave me alone zine no.9 and Fanzinul fanzinelor TM.
LEAVE ME ALONE ZINE is a diy-anarchist-hardcore-punk zine that covers different social and political issues, animal and earth liberation activism and music stuff as well. In the new issue you can find: a wonderful face of a cat on the cover: Pech // Interviews with Despite Everything & Attrito // thoughts: byciclerepairkit; burning bridges; black rhinos, black hoods; it’s not just you; idle hands; why fashion is not my passion // some info on natural health – about lavender and its magic // some wonderful pictures from United and Strong’s photo tour report // a nice vegan recipe: pilaf // nice political spaces from Romania. All the articles are written by a borderless nationless collective.
The zine is printed and is also available for download and reading online.
