Infiltrate the System Records
Rather than making money, I just want to help bands spread the Anti-fascist message. Wherever you are from and if you are interested in getting involved then just get in contact: i.t.s.records@hotmail.com

One Way Ticket To Cubesville
One Way Ticket To Cubesville started out in the early 1990s. Just like many of the punk bands it so loves, it recently reformed. It interviews some of the same bands and is strong proof that just because you are older doesn’t mean you have to compromise your politics, your music taste or any of your fundamentals. With a rich seam of lively anarchist politics, a warped sense of humour and a firmly DIY ethic, its exactly what zinery is all about.

Pants 4 Peace
Culturally speaking, War seems to have become an acceptable state to be in, the norm, like the perpetual war between oceania, eastasia and eurasia in Orwell’s 1984. Any Statements against war have become unfashionable and sidelined to the ‘loony’ left, the territory of the oddballs, the hippies and the punks, arty and spiritual types. Much of the peace movement from the broad left has traditionally focused on the ‘anti’ or action against something. P4P is about being part of a groundswell which aims to create positive change by creating happiness.
We’re not saying p4p will change the world, but it is an action of mild defiance in a world of passive compliance.
