THE MIDNIGHT KITCHEN IS SEEKING SUBMISSIONS FOR THE FALL 2012 ISSUE!!
Our newsletter is a submission-based zine that allows us to take further steps outside of the kitchen, to reflect on our connections with other community and activist groups, as well as larger social, political, and environmental struggles, so submit!
HIGHLIGHT ON PEOPLE OF COLOUR AND INDIGENOUS ORGANIZING AND ANTI-PRISON ORGANIZING
Our last two issues of the Midnight Kitchen focused heavily on the Quebec student strike in order to make meaningful connections to struggles and organizing in our local community. As the current Outreach Coordinator and an Anarchist Person of Colour, I’ve had the pleasure of attending the New Orleans AIPOC convergence and met radical POC and indigenous people, who organize community projects that undermine the current systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism. In this issue, we would like to highlight the amazing work done by people of colour and indigenous people, and the projects and movements that centre our voices and struggles against racism. As white supremacy and capitalism are heavily intertwined with the prison industrial complex, we would also like to highlight anti-prison organizing and resistance to the criminal justice system.
Share experiences of organizing, personal reflections, rants, analyses on issues pertaining to AIPOC organizing, anti-racism, or resisting the prison industrial complex, artwork, poems, etc.
