JustSeeds needs your help!

ryan | For 10 years, JustSeeds has been a critical resource for radical artists working outside the "art world" system.

The community of art-activists around JustSeeds have launched national projects like the Celebrate People's History poster series, Street Art Workers, Drawing Resistance, Cut & Paint, and a hell of a lot more: now they need your help to continue. Below is a letter from Josh MacPhee: more...  0 Comments

Those Australians who imagined that mindless, unqualified statements only issued from American neo-cons be advised, conservative pro-American Evangelicals are alive and very ‘unwell’ in conservative Anglican Sydney. more...  2 Comments

CCNY Snitch Sergey: Leader of the ProtestWarrior 101st Fighting Keyboardists (IDF Edition)

Modern Pitung | Not too long ago, Sergey "the Snitch" Kadinsky -- the bigot whose letter to The Daily News touched off the faux-controversy over the Morales/Shakur Community and Student Center -- came by these parts (among other sites covering the controversy) to drop some linkspam for his shitty Xanga blog. Doing some research, I've found Sergey Kadinsky has amassed quite a backlog of garbage under his online pseudonym, "Mazeartist". more...  1 Comments

America on the Brink of Anarchy

he Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan | Without an advocate for the poor, without a new state of mind in America, the country lies on the brink of anarchy. Anarchy is the complete absence of government. It’s a condition of political disorder, violence and lawlessness in the society.
