LINKING RIGHT ALONG NOW:
I've recently added yet more links to this site. Under the Blogs section there is the New Zealand based Anarchia (http://anarchia.wordpress.com ) who also publish a print zine of the same name. From the U.K. come Love and Rage (http://loveandrage.org.uk ) and Bombs and Shields (http://bombsandshields.blogspot.com ). Finally from out in B.C there's the AnarchoCyclist blog (http://anarchocyclist.ca ), a site not just for politics but for things like the Chinese language and birding.
I've also added three sources under the Images and Comics section: Visual Resistance (http://www.visualresistance.org/wordpress ), a Brooklyn NY collective who "aim to explore the spaces where art and activism interact". These people also publish a zine on the techniques of street art. Then there's the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (http://www.politicalgraphics.org ). This latter has a rather musty smell of Marxism and the aged New Left about it. Hard to find anything anarchic about it, but they do have a collection of over 50,000 posters on file. Finally, there is Graffiti.Org (http://www.graffiti.org ) whose name says it all.
Then for those who like their images served with a side dressing of talk there are two additions to the Texts section; The Culture and Politics of Graffiti by Timothy Werwath (http://www.graffiti.org/faq/werwath/werwath.html ) and Advertising, Propaganda and Graffiti by Alex Kataras (http://www.graffiti.org/faq/kataras/kataras.html ).
