We are pleased to announce the publication of the first issue of Upping the Anti, a new journal of theory and action devoted to the debates and discussions taking place within anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, and anti-oppressive movements. With a three person editorial collective and an advisory board of over twenty activists from across Canada (including two Advisory Board members in Saskatoon and two Editors who hail from the Queen City!), we have created a new, broadly-based journal to address various problems and successes of radical organizing in our communities.
The journal is available for $5 at Turning the Tide books (and other local distributors if you're outside Saskatoon), or can be downloaded from the Autonomy & Solidarity website, at http://auto_sol.tao.ca/node/view/1277. There are two versions of the PDF file, one designed to be printed and read for personal use, and one layed out so that by photocoping it double sided you can make it into a pamphlet/booklet for local distribution.
If you would like to help to distribute the journal, please email
so that we can add you to our list of local distributors and arrange to help you get copies.
To get a hard copy of the journal mailed to you, send $7 in cash to "Upping the Anti", 900 Dufferin Street, P.O. Box 24144 Toronto, ON, Canada, M6H 4H6.

WHAT IS AUTONOMY AND SOLIDARITY?
Autonomy and Solidarity formed in September 2003 as a network of anti-capitalist activists across Canada interested in discussing and making contributions to a series of fundamental questions and debates concerning revolutionary movements nationally and globally. Autonomy & Solidarity launched its website http://auto_sol.tao.ca as a way to provide information and anti-capitalist perspectives to activists. In just over a year, over 1100 people have registered as users of the site, and the site features a regular flow of news and analysis with special features on resistance to occupation and imperialism in Iraq, Kanehsatake, and Haiti. There are A&S members in Toronto, Guelph, Vancouver and Sudbury. If you would like to find out more about the mandate and vision of Autonomy and Solidarity, please check out ==> http://auto_sol.tao.ca/node/view/2.
