SchNEWS In Graphic Detail

OUT NOW - only a fiver!

A paperback-sized, full-colour book of political graphics and satirical material produced by SchNEWS in the past decade. Covering issues from climate change to vivisection, police repression to resource wars, these graphics manage to raise a grin out of some deadly serious matters, all the while never watering down the uncompromising message of SchNEWS. This is a diverse range of images both in form and content with detourned or subverted images, fake ads, mixed metaphors, wafer-thin gags and more. To view many of them click here

SchNEWS At Ten  

It all started in a squatted courthouse in Brighton back in 1994 with people wearing silly wigs reading out the alternative news. Ever since then SchNEWS has been publishing continuous weekly newsheets full of radical get-off-your-arse direct action politics from Britain and across the world. This book brings together some of the key stories of the decade from the big roads protests and anti-Criminal Justice Act movement in the nineties through to the global anti-capitalist movement and opposition to the war in Iraq. From Newbury to Seattle, Liverpool Dockers to the Zapatistas - with a lot of the less well known, but equally important moments in between. And not forgetting our infamous crap arrests of the week.

Peace de Resistance - Annual 2003

'As the Forces of Darkness gather for a new attack on Iraq, they're shaken by an unexpected explosion of resistance. US airbases are invaded; military convoys are blockaded; schoolkids stage mass walkouts from Manchester to Melbourne; roads are occupied, embassies besieged, and cities all over the world are brought to a standstill by the biggest mass demonstrations ever seen. Read about the efforts to sabotage the war machine that the corporate media ignored: not just the mass demos, but Tornado-trashing in Scotland, riots across the Middle East, and train blockades in Europe. Featuring SchNEWS 351-401, this book also covers many of the past year's other stories from the rebel frontlines, including GM crop-trashing, international activists in Palestine, and the 10th anniversary of Castlemorton. All that plus loads of new articles, photos, cartoons, subverts, satire, a comprehensive contacts list, and more…'

Hundreds of thousands come out on the street in Genoa, Quebec, Gothenburg, Barcelona, Brussels against globalised institutions.
