Don't Back Down! Is a detailed and highly informative
manual of how to take direct action and avoid the
consequences for the serious activist. Published by
the Revolution Now Press & Distro of 808, 14th Street,
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada S7N 0P8, it provides
information on equipment and supplies, getting people
together for action, tactics during and after riots
and other actions, first aid for people
gassed/sprayed, techniques for staying calm, to stay
focussed, looking after other people and generally
having a successful 'day out'! This short
pamphlet/zine is packed with information, easily
carried on the day or photocopied to be distributed
among people up for direct action and protest. It's a
very valuable work, with lessons for all no matter
where you are, and clearly written by people with a
lot of experience to share. As the Distro says:
"there's no fucking way the revolution will be
transmitted via the internet. Paper zines can be
carried in your back pocket, read in the crapper and
passed to anyone on the street. Paper zines slide
below the class lines, phone lines and picket lines.
Paper zines don't give a shit about the cyber
gap.....". Get it, and pass it on! No price is given
but the Distro asks everyone to make five copies of
the pamphlet and accept donations from those able to
make one.

Review: South Chicago ABC Zine Catalog
For those interested in supporting prisoners, this
catalogue of zines, newsletters and pamphlets provides
the basic tools to understanding the oppressive nature
of the US prison system in detail and the ways in
which it is resisted in depth. All publications are
written by prisoners, their relatives, supporters or
friends and explore not only the prison system and its
effects but also the views of political prisoners for
whom 'release' will only come via a libertarian
revolution: ideas from some of the most oppressed
people on the planet. All the publications are
extremely cheap and the publisher is a clearing house
for other zines and pamphlets on anarchism, feminism
and anti-racism. The catalog can be got from the
South Chicago ABC Zine Distro, PO Box 721, Homewood,
Ilinois 60430, USA
