20 Years of South Chicago ABC Zine Distro with Tony & Mike
This week on The Final Straw, we'll hear a conversation from a few month back with Anthony Rayson and Mike Plosky, who have run the South Chicago Anarchist Black Cross Zine Distro since 1998. They send zines to prisoners, publish the writings and art of politicized prisoners as a project of public education, and help advocate and support prisoners organizing for their own education and liberation. You can find a full catalogue of zines at DePaul University library's zine special collection. Donations can be made to their GoFundMe, and you can request catalogues and titles or just contact them at:
 
South Chicago ABC Zine Distro
PO Box 721
Homewood, IL 60430

We'll also hear Sean Swain, who in many ways was brought to anarchism and had his books, cartoons and zines published by South Chicago ABC Zine Distro chat with Tony and Mike. More of Sean's work, as always, at https://seanswain.org. We're also joined in the conversation by Casey Goonan, an editor of True Leap Press which also does similar work to SC ABC Zine Distro. More of True Leap's work, including their catalogue at https://trueleappress.com.
