Liberate Issue Two Out Now!

Welcome to issue two of Liberate!

In this issue we discuss veganism and the need to recognise that all forms of oppression are linked; hence the feature title; Vegan is Not Enough. It is not enough to recognise our privilege over animals but ignore that which we have over women, other cultures, queers and the environment. Similarly people active in social justice movements often do not acknowledge the power and privilege they hold over the earth and our animal brothers and sisters.

We have also added a few new sections; these are Know Your Friends, the Activist Toolkit and October 15th Solidarity.

Know Your Friends focuses on the animals, what they are like in the world and how they are abused by humans. Many of us do not actually know that much about those that we are fighting for so this is a chance to get better informed.

The Activist Toolkit will discuss tactics, practical DIY tips and analyse campaigns and their effectiveness.

The October 15th Solidarity section will keep our readers updated on where the case is at for the defendants of the State Terror Raids.

If you would like to have a copy of Liberate mailed to you every six months you can subscribe for $10 per year; this includes postage. Please send subscription requests to liberatemagazine@yahoo.com or via snail mail to Liberate, PO BOX 7523, Wellesley Street, Auckland.

Alternatively if you would like just a single copy of Liberate these are available from the Liberate Collective for $5 (including postage), from the Freedom Shop, the SAFE Cruelty Free Shop and Katipo Books or can be downloaded from here Liberate Volume Two

For your quick reference (and searchability) we have also made the articles available as individual posts; links to these can be found below.

Please send us your submissions, thoughts, art and/or ideas. We will try not to edit your writing but it may from time to time be necessary if it is too long.

Liberate Volume 2 – Submissions Wanted

Liberate is a magazine written by and for the animal liberation movement in Aotearoa. It aims to encourage discussion amongst the movement about animal abuse issues, strategies, tactics and goals. In no way does Liberate aim to create a homogenised, centralised approach to animal liberation but rather we wish to acknowledge our diversity of thought, action and collective experience, knowledge and passion.
We acknowledge that industrialised animal abuse is the result of an oppressive global regime that puts power and profit before the preservation of life, whether it be that of an animal, human or mother earth. This system not only encourages and legitimises animal abuse but also racism, sexism, homophobia, colonisation and environmental destruction.

It is for this reason that we have proposed that the feature of our next magazine be focused around animal rights/veganism and its relationship to other forms of oppression, where animal rights fits with these forms of oppression, how activists in these different movements can work together and where animal rights (and the community) may be reinforcing the oppression of other groups/the environment or failing to take the oppression of others into account. For example an analysis of veganism and class, animal rights and anarcha-feminism and indigenous struggles and traditional hunting practices.

It would be great to have peoples’ submissions around this topic, just anything you want to say or contributions for any of the other sections in the magazine. We want it all.

The other sections are:

* Books not Bombs (book, CD and zine reviews and excerpts)
* Activism and the (in)justice system (send us details of your brushes with the law and issues relating to prisoner support)
* Security
* Activist Toolkit (new section detailing useful tips for effective activism)
* Reports for the underground
* Letters to the community (short comments about the magazine, short replies to articles or a response to anything happening within the community)

Please send us your submissions, thoughts, art and/or ideas. We will try not to edit your writing but it may from time to time be necessary if it is too long.

Maximum Length for Submissions:
Features (A3): 1,300 words
Opinions: 500 words
Letters: 100 – 250 words

Deadline for next issue: 1st August

All submissions will be anonymous.

Please send all submissions to liberatemagazine (at) yahoo.com or via snail mail to Liberate, PO BOX 7523, Wellesley Street, Auckland.

If you would like to have a copy of Liberate mailed to you every six months you can subscribe for $8 per year; this includes postage. Please send subscription requests to liberatemagazine (at) yahoo.com or via snail mail to Liberate, PO BOX 7523, Wellesley Street, Auckland.

We still have copies of Volume One available, if you would like a copy of this these are available from the Liberate Collective for $4 (including postage), from the Freedom Shop, Black Star Books and Katipo Books or can be downloaded from liberatemagazine.files.wordpress.com/2008/04/magazine1.pdf.
