Anarquía y Alcohol: Realmente desperdiciadx Cómo lo demoníaco llegó a ser civilizado


“Anarquía y Alcohol logra hablarnos de la problemática del alcohol en el ámbito político sin caer en tópicos ni en el dogmatismo que caracteriza a este debate; nos guía en un viaje por la historia de la civilización ­según defiende­ cimentada en la fabricación de cerveza; nos retrata lo cotidiano y lo doloroso a la vez. Todo con un tono irónico, que no se olvida de la seriedad con la que debe tratarse el tema. Propone, además, recuperar palabras como “éxtasis” o ”embriaguez”, para dotarlas de un sentido más positivo y que refleje realmente ese estado de plenitud que tanto anhelamos. Y sobretodo, provocar la expansión del rechazo del alcohol ­y del resto de drogas, claro­ predicando con el ejemplo en una vida sana y en busqueda de la realización personal.”

Anarchy & Alcohol: Wasted Indeed & How The Fiends Came To Be Civilized

Text from the zine:

“The foundations of colonial genocide bear the stench of a long and protracted alcohol-induced nightmare – nearly every indigenous culture the Europeans encountered was destroyed by European alcohol and disease. Th e spreading of firewater among indigenous populations of North America went hand-in-hand with the distribution of lethal smallpox-infested blankets. Many of these cultures, without the experience of thousands of years of civilized alcoholism to draw upon, were even more subject than the Europeans to the ravages of “the civilized brew.” Between alcohol, disease, commerce, and guns, most of them were quickly and utterly destroyed. Th is process was not unique to North America – it was repeated throughout the world in every European colonial endeavor. While the drug of choice varied (sometimes it was opium, for example, as in the “Opium Wars” Great Britain waged to control China), alcohol was judged in many countries to be the most socially-acceptable tool of pacification.”

Capitalism Plus Dope Equals Genocide

Essay written by Black Panther Michael Tabor RIP.

Text from the zine:

“Drug addiction in the colonized ghettos of America has constituted a major problem for over 15 years. Its use is so widespread that it can -without fear of exaggeration – be termed a “plague”. It has reached epidemic proportions, and it is still growing. But it has only been within the last few years that the racist US government has considered drug addiction “a matter of grave concern”. It is interesting to note that this growing concern on the part of the government is proportionate to the spread of the plague into the inner sanctums of the White middle and upper-class communities. As long as the plague was confined to the ghetto, the government did not see fit to deem it a problem. But as soon as college professors, demagogic politicians, money-crazed finance capitalists and industrialists discovered that their own sons and daughters had fallen victim to the plague, a virtual “state of national emergency” was declared. This is significant, for it provides us with a clue to the understanding of the plague as it relates to Black people.”

Dejar De Fumar: Una guía Do It Yourself (Hazlo Tú Misme) hecha por gente ex-fumadora


¿Por qué un fanzine DIY para dejar de fumar?

Este fanzine existe porque quería compartir lo que había aprendido de mis experiencias sobre dejar de fumar para ayudar a otras personas a dejarlo. He “dejado” de fumar siete veces, y sólo el último intento fue exitoso. Me siento como si tuviera una buena y considerable mano para manejar varios métodos. Convencí a unas pocas personas más, todas ex-fumadoras, para que ofrecieran sus propios consejos e información, y lo que tienes aquí es el producto de ese esfuerzo colaborativo. Consiste principalmente en información práctica de gente que ya ha decidido que quiere dejarlo, pero hay también alguna otra información, como la sección de “historia”, cuya intención es generar motivación.

One For The Resistance? Oppression, Anarchism & Alcohol

Text from the zine:

“Aside from my personal aversion to alcohol and the abuse thereof, I strongly feel that alcohol consumption – and production – is a highly political issue, which anarchists should not ignore. In this article I will attempt to explain why I feel it is that anarchists should consider starting a dialogue regarding the alcohol industry, the role of alcohol – and alcoholism – in capitalist society, its current effects on the poor and working classes, and its place in a future anarchist society. This is an issue that has been considered by anarchists in the past, but unfortunately does not seem to warrant much attention these days, and I’m uncomfortable to say that I think that many anarchists – as with other issues facing us – may be reluctant to admit that it is a problem for, or within, our movement.”

Straight Edge Anarchy: The Danger of a Sober Insurrection

Text from the zine:

“Attacking intoxication culture means individual resistance and collective  support. Civilization is a prison of misery, coercion, and oppressive inequality. Institutionalized racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression create feelings of severe depression and isolation. Intoxication culture thrives in areas dominated by poverty, depression, and isolation. This explains why communities of color are often affected by addiction and
intoxication where the state takes advantage carrying out murders and mass incarceration. Support and solidarity are important in helping to strengthen the struggle against addiction as well as developing an intersectional attack on all oppression.”

The Drug Epidemic: A New Form of Black Genocide?

This zine is an excerpt from “Anarchism and the Black Revolution” by Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin focused on the problem of intoxication culture in the black community.

Text from zine:

“We are not advocating the summary murder of people, but we are saying if it takes death to bring about a change in the community, so be it! The issue of death is essentially an issue of who is doing the dying. It can be direct and exercised against the death merchant, or it can be indirect and exercised against our youth — if we let it. To be aware of a dangerous situation and not move to change it is to be as responsible for that dangerous situation as those who created it in the first place.”

Towards A Less Fucked Up World: Sobriety and Anarchist Struggle


This edition of “Towards a Less Fucked Up World: Sobriety and Anarchist Struggle” by Nick Riotfag was reprinted in 2014 by Sprout Distro. This edition features the revised
text along with an afterward that appeared in the book, Sober Living for the Revolution: Hardcore Punk, Straight Edge, and Radical Politics .

Text from the zine:

“This zine is an ongoing project I’ve been writing in my head and on paper for several years now. Since I decided to become permanently sober several years ago, I’ve constantly struggled to find safe spaces; I hoped that when I started to become a part of radical, activist, and anarchist communities, that I would find folks who shared or at least respected my convictions. Instead, I found a painful paradox: radical scenes that were so welcoming and affirming in many ways, yet incredibly inflexible and unsupportive around my desire to be in sober spaces.”

My Edge is Anything but Straight: Towards A Radical Queer Critique of Intoxication Culture

Text from the zine:

“I’ve been intentionally sober ever since I first started going to punk shows when I was 14 or 15, and have always thought about my sobriety not just as a personal preference but as a social and political statement. I’ve always felt ambivalent towards sXe identity, though, a major reason being that I also identify strongly as queer. It’s not that I think the two identities are necessarily incompatible, but they seem to have an uncomfortable relationship. On the one hand, I haven’t felt much space to be my queer self in most punk/hardcore scenes, and the hyper-masculine reputation of sXe definitely turns me off. On the other hand, I’ve faced a lot of exclusion within queer scenes for my sobriety. With this article I’m attempting to reconcile these parts of myself, wondering how I might hold on to the edge while leaving behind the straight. I hope that it will provoke conversation and debate about drugs, alcohol, queer communities, sXe, radical politics, and about how we can transform our society.”

Wasted Indeed: Anarchy & Alcohol (shortened version)

Text from back cover:

“It’s no exaggeration to say that alcohol has played a key role in the epidemic of fascism, racism, statism, imperialism, colonialism, sexism and patriarchy, class oppression, religious superstition, and all the other products of hierarchal authority that has swept the earth over the past few mellenia. It continues to play that role today, as people of the whole world, finally universally domesticated and enslaved by globalized capitalism, are kept pacified and helpless by a steady supply of spirits. These evil spirits squander the time, money, health, focus, creativity, awareness, and fellowship of all who inhabit this universally occupied territory—”work is the curse of the drinking classes,” as Oscar Wilde said. It’s not surprising, for example, that the primary targets of advertising for malt liquor (a toxic byproduct of the brewing process) are the inhabitants of ghettos in the United States: people who constitute a class that, if not tranquilized by addiction and incapacitated by self-destruction, would be on the front lines of the war to destroy capitalism.”

My Vegan Straight Edge is Anything but White: An Indigenous Anarchist Critique of Speciesism and Intoxication Culture

Text from back cover:

“Aight, so I hear this and see this shit a lot. That vegans are  inherently white, that veganism is about consumerism, and it also makes the (racist) assumption that ALL POC have the same, monolithic culture around consuming and exploiting animals. The great hunter gatherer ideas are colonially based usually around the time where romanticism of indigenous ppl was the hip thing. Part of decolonization and rebalancing of our relation to the animal nations will need to involve us adjusting as we are at an ecological breaking point…”

“We can choose, and some of us do, to negate the existence of intoxicants for political and decolonial reasons. By refusing to play into not only what pacifies but what comes up and promotes systems that are inherently based in imperialism and capitalism as well as used to bolster kyriarchy all around, one feels all the agony they should: for themselves to do what they chose or must for existence without being lulled into any false pleasure of this civilization, for other beings and the planet being destroyed near and far from them, and for the future as this continues. You cannot destroy your masters without going all the way.”

Weaponizing Sobriety: Feral Anarchy Against Intoxication Culture

From back cover:

“As an anarchist, I refuse to tranquilize the chaos of my jouissance with inebriation. I exalt life vehemently against the pacifying qualities of marijuana, the cancerous addiction of tobacco, and the “correctional” anesthesia of psychiatric medications. The intoxication-based realities of poverty, addiction, and death motivate my personal desire to remain sober and supportive of those struggling. As long as I exist, my sobriety remains a weapon against capitalism, a weapon which can not be confiscated by the social conformity essential to intoxication culture. Towards individualist revolt and a straight edge anarchist praxis, straight edge means attack.”
