Winnipeg anarcho-punk band Propagandhi have just embarked on their 2013 European tour. Pluto is very excited to announce that three of our books will be going with them!
The Netherlands-based anarchist book distro Typewriter will be taking copies of What We are Fighting For, Haiti’s New Dictatorship and Generation Palestine, to sell at the band’s European shows – alongside some other awesome merchandise (like this t-shirt.)
Propagandhi will be playing in the UK on four different dates. For the full tour schedule check out their website here.
‘Note to Self’ is the first track on the new album, Failed States (Epitaph Records, 2012)
A Radical Collective Manifesto
Edited by Federico Campagna and Emanuele Campiglio
Visions of a different society run in the interests of the 99%. Leading activist voices answer the question the media loves to ask the protesters.
“Here are the first flowers of spring: the beginning of an epochal dialogue about the human future. Inspired by the Occupy movements across the world, What We Are Fighting For should inspire all of us to join the conversation.” – Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and City of Quartz
“This collection provides a rallying point for all those who resist the dogmas of contemporary politics and seek a fresh set of alternatives. What We Are Fighting For is a manifesto full of urgent, articulate responses to the current situation.” – Simon Critchley, Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy at the New School, New York, and author of The Faith of the Faithless (2012).
The Coup, the Earthquake and the UN Occupation
Justin Podur. Foreword by William I Robinson
Charts Haiti’s recent history up to the present, including the 2004 coup, the UN occupation and devastating 2010 earthquake.
“The UN occupation of Haiti promised to bring stability and democracy. Instead it has delivered cholera, rape and repression. With a sharp eye and a keener pen, Justin Podur expertly exposes the abuses the gang of nations that calls itself ‘the international community’ has inflicted on one of the world’s poorest countries – from the brutal imposition of structural adjustment and the driving out of a democratically elected president to the politicisation of earthquake relief. Enough is enough.” – Greg Grandin, Professor of History at New York University
“The centuries-long torture of Haiti, and the courageous resistance of its people, is one of the most dramatic and compelling stories of modern history. It is vividly brought to life in this well-informed and highly illuminating study, which also provides valuable lessons about Haiti, about western power and ideology, and about prospects for justice and freedom in today’s world.” – Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor & Professor of Linguistics (Emeritus) at MIT
Voices from the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement
Edited by Rich Wiles. Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Brings together Palestinian and international activists in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
“The BDS movement is the most enlightened, imaginative, moral, fearless and dynamic blow for freedom I have known for many years. I believe it will be a vital factor in the liberation of Palestine. The inspiring voices in this book will help achieve that goal.” – John Pilger
“Reading this book, talking about it and acting upon its ideas is a further political act against an injustice that has lasted a lifetime. “ – John Berger
