Outside Agitators: Reflections on Resistance in Rossport Since 2000, the small community of Rossport, County Mayo, Ireland has prevented Shell from building and operating a potentially devastating onshore gas refinery and high pressure pipeline in their remote and environmentally sensitive region. Shell has enjoyed the full support of the Irish state. But the spirited resistance of the local community has meant that, five years after the refinery was intended to be fully operational, the project is still in its infancy. This pamphlet gives an overview of some of the reasons people travel from the UK to support the struggle in Mayo. outside agitators

Low Impact Living Onboard is a group of eco minded boaters living on the water ways of the UK. Their handbook gives boaters advice on things such as running on recycled vegetable oil, insulation, 12v electrics, growing food, hot water, maintenance etc. We don’t print that booklet (indeed it may even only be web based) but we did print some postcards for them. They held a photographic competition and the winning 25 designs got made into postcards. It took at least 6 months from getting the first versions of the images to getting decent quality pictures off them but the results were well worth the wait. Visit LILO at www.lilo.org.uk

 

Holidarity: taking time out from ‘normal’ life to spend time in a beautiful location while engaging in politically useful activity with a community in struggle. Holidarity Zine is a really gorgeous, 140 cm2 booklet. Back to basics, the graphics were done by hand, and the designer scanned in fabrics to create wonderfully different background textures, which came out beautifully on the riso. holidarity

 

Hyde Park Heat

Hyde Park Heat

The creators of Hyde Park Heat print on a tight budget and are happy to do the DIY thing as far as they can to get as many copies on the street as possible. It is a 20 odd page A4 newsletter / zine full of stuff in and around the Leeds 6 postcode. It balances being a useful resource for students and bringing in wider issues of living in LS6. It has a fair spattering of local politics all served up with lashings of humour.

 

Angry at the Bus Stop

One of our favourites amongst the many punk/diy music fanzines that we print, Angry at the Bus stop combines gig reviews, record reviews and interviews alongside articles on issues from grassroots activism to vegan food. The features are accompanied by energetic, pencil-drawn illustrations which give the zine a really stylish take on the DIY aesthetic. Check out this and other zines at CornDog Publishing Zine Distro www.corndog.co.uk and we make zines, an online community for zine makers and readers. http://wemakezines.ning.com/
