We are looking for original submissions local to so-called vancouver and so-called bc for our 4th issue! This issue will cover Fall/Winter 2021 and Winter 2022. We are looking for on the ground reports, reflections, and analysis from Fairy Creek, Gidimt’en and Coyote Camps, anti-TMX struggle on Secwépemc territory, any other struggles against extractive, earth-destroying industries.
We are also seeking to balance the focus on direct action and sabotage with other forms of struggle and building the world we seek to thrive in, such as disability justice, Indigenous sovereignty, queer and trans liberation, networks of care, pleasure activism, mutual aid, race in anarchist communities, relationships to “nature”, and more.
We are also looking for anything else you are interested in writing or submitting!! Poems, communiques, digital and visual art, photography, reflections on actions long past, book reviews, personal/emotional reflections.
Please read our submissions guidelines page and our privacy section on how to safely submit your stuff. And send your submissions to us at [email protected] by February 15th.

For this issue, we are particularly interested in pieces on Covid, alienation, reflections on “community,” land defense, antifascism in vancouver, “what’s going on?,” and recent and ongoing struggles (e.g.: TMX, treesitting, tent city).
As we are a vancouver-based zine, we are looking to publish work from vancouver or elsewhere in british columbia.
The San Juan River, flowing into the Pacific Ocean on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island, feels different than most island rivers. This majestic coastal river ecosystem is of a scale one is more accustomed to seeing on the mainland. The meandering braids of the broad estuarine area it shares with the smaller Gordon River, sometimes cloaked in mist that hides the mountains of the surrounding valleys, are home to everything from salmon and steelhead to giant green sturgeon. The area around the watershed is also home to the biggest trees still standing in socalled Canada, such as the Cheewhat Cedar, the San Juan Spruce and the Red Creek Fir.
Since August 10, 2020, grassroots blockades have continuously defended the headwaters of Ada’itsx (Fairy Creek) – the last unlogged tributary of the San Juan from being clearcut by Teal Jones Group and its contractors . This is the longest sustained direct action of its kind in this region since the infamous Bear Mountain treesit in Langford (2007-2008).
