Embarrassing self-congratulation/promotion time.

So, it’s been a whole year since I started writing this shite. I felt like commemorating the anniversary in some way, and decided that making a printable zine/pamphlet wasn’t really any more egotistical than writing a blog is, so I’ve collected all the bits of my writing from the last year that seemed like they might have some wider relevance beyond their immediate context and turned them into a print-ready PDF. Enjoy.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
