Fuck Off Facebook

Heartening to observe that radical cultural and political zines are still flourishing in Wales. Fuck Off Facebook is a bilingual anarchist fanzine that has been around since 2011. During its existence they have published articles on the iniquities of Tesco, Wetherspoon, Coca Cola, Nick Griffin, the royal family, and various other villains. They also do music reviews and have carried features on Poly Styrene, Datblygu, Pussy Riot etc. Also making the scene is FFWFF, a bilingual anarcho-feminist zine put together by a small collective. Their publication which was birthed last year includes art, stories, and poems. It also contains advice on how to make a Pussy Riot balaclava; and the perfect vegan ice-cream. The latest addition to the underground sphere is Cardiff-based Bitch, a cut'n'paste queercore art zine. A more comprehensive account of what is contained in these publications and details of how to get hold of them can be found at the excellent Afiach website
