Nowtopia by Chris Carlsson
How Pirate Programmers, Outlaw Bicyclists and Vacant-Lot Gardeners are Inventing the Future Today! CARLSSON. Outlaw bicycling, urban permaculture, biofuels, free software, and even the Burning Man festival are windows into a scarcely visible social transformation that is redefining politics as we know it. As capitalism continues to corral every square inch of the globe into its logic of money and markets, new practices are emerging through which people are taking back their time and technological know-how.

Bicycle! – Sam Tracy
Written by a working Bicycle mechanic, Bicycle covers everything you need to know to care for your own two-wheeled ride. The book cuts through the obtuse techno-jargon and delivers maintenance clarity with a touch of humour and radicalism while categorically denying mechanics’ supposed dreariness. With detailed descriptions of all maintenance tasks and repair situations, clearly illustrated with photos and drawings, this guide serves every rider’s needs From the professional Bicycle worker to the casual rider, this is the perfect manual.

Anarchism vs. Primitivism – Brian Sheppard
This pamphlet looks closely at the fundamental conflicts between anarchism and primitivism. It traces primitivism’s basic precepts back to their authoritarian roots, reveals primitivist misconceptions about anarchism, capitalism and technology, shows how the corporate media have used primitivism to discredit anarchism, and also shows how ideology-driven primitivists, much like fundamentalist christians opposed to evolution, have picked through anthropological evidence to support their predetermined conclusions, while ignoring data that contradict those conclusions.

new website & online shop coming soon!

the roots of compassion collective is working non-stop on a new state-of-the-art website and online shop.
you probably remember we’ve only launched our current one about 1 1/2 years ago, but we’re not really happy with a few features and the current shop software is waaaaay out of date. so we decided to make a new one from scratch and throw in some cool new features.
there is still a bit work to be done, but hopefully we’ll be able to present our new roots of compassion home soon – so stay tuned!

Collective

We founded roots of compassion as a way to promote veganism and animal liberation. In 2001 we designed and printed the first badges and t-shirts. Together with yummy homemade chocolate cake and lots of leaflets we held stalls on concerts, protests and other events.

2003 we started our website www.rootsofcompassion.org. In the beginning we had articles about veganism and animal rights / liberation, book reviews, interviews with bands, artists and activists as well as news on different topics.

Austrian 9 free

The controversial pre-trial detention for a group of 9 austrian animal rights activists has been lifted today, following an order of the appelate court in vienna, austria.

Since the end of may the 9 activists (one had been released earlier) have been charged with “Forming a Criminal Organization,” under §278a StGB of the austrian penal code. The Appelate court explained that there is still a danger of commiting further crimes, but the pre-trial detention cannot be upheld if the expected penalties are in no relation to it.

The second reason for detention, danger of suppression of evidence is by law limited to two months, which have long expired.

The first activists have been set free already.
