From the introduction...
"It's been a while since the last issue of our rag - 6
months! - and in that time, a hell of a lot has
happened. Hurricane Katrina happened, the Minute Men
showed up, friends have been killed... all going to
show racism hasn't gone anywhere. But as we document
in this issue, resistance has not gone anywhere
either. From ghettos to domestic violence shelters to
prison cells, struggle continues against the
oppression people face in their daily lives. As
always, our politics are anti-statist,
anti-capitalist, anti-racist, and

Articles include...
*** Feminist Domestic Violence Shelters
"Awareness of domestic violence did not grow out of
social workers, sociologists, government bureaucrats,
or other professionals stating that is was a problem,
although they later recognized that it was in fact an
enormous problem. It was feminists and other
grassroots activists that first used the term
“battered women” and raised public awareness around
this issue – they are the ones who turned the private
and personal into the public and political..."

*** I Love Paris in the Spring Time, I Love Paris in
the Fall
"The young rebels of 2005 are not children of
privilege acting out the Marxist or Anarchist or
Situationist theories they got from books. They are
not in the streets because 'another world is
possible.' They are in the streets because their lives
in this world are impossible..."

*** Between Whiteness and a Hard Place
"In 1970, self-described middle-class white liberal
Don Schanche found his liberal conscience in a

*** Dispatches from Europe
"It's during the 60th anniversary of the liberation of
Auschwitz that I find myself on a plane full of
Germans bound for Frankfurt. It's quite creepy really.
I'm glad for the presence of the few Middle Easterners
on board, it makes Germans easier to bear..."

*** The Importance of Supporting Prisoners
"I have seen bodies broken and minds fragmented
forever by the brutal hands of the keepers and their
clever use of weak, inmate lackeys. I have seen many

THE A WORD is a collective based out of Seattle, WA. Our main project at
the moment consists of a magazine.
Our politics are anti-statist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist, and
anti-sexist/heterosexist. Our practice is to build power through
self-organization and direct action. We believe that the greatest
assistance we can give to people all over this planet who are
struggling for self-determination and liberation is to build
revolutionary organizations here in the US. We invite anyone
who shares our goals and wants to act on them to be our partners
in this project.

In the first place, we invite you to send us articles. We invite
you to help us distribute THE A WORD. And we invite you to debate
with us and struggle with us to develop a strategic plan for
revolution in the US, and the organization necessary to make it happen.

THE A WORD is available by subscription, or at these fine radical
