ACT Activism

Zines that are about different forms of activism, including political organizing, protests, and radical cheerleading. This category is also for zines that include a whole bunch of different articles, and individually the articles could maybe fit into different categories like Anarchism or Feminism, but the range of topics is so large that it's better to put the zine under Activism. This can end up being a big category so try not to put a zine here unless it doesn't fit anywhere else. If a zine is about activism around gender issues, include in FEM Feminism or QUR Queer. If it's about environmental activism, include in ENV Environment and Nature.
