Submission Guidelines

Submission guidelines:

We welcome submissions from everyone, subject to the following provisos:

GENERAL

  • Submissions are currently welcome in Catalan, Dutch, English, French, Spanish. Please ask about submissions in other languages.
  • We encourage people to submit in their preferred language and to help with proof-reading. Since we are unfunded it would help if non-native speakers could arrange to have texts proof-read before submission.
  • No material sympathetic to or helpful to forces of repression such as the police.
  • No sympathy towards hierarchical structures of any kind, especially those of political parties because of their capacity to undermine squatting struggles.
  • No stigmatisation of forms of violence practised by social movement actors in resistance.
  • All information that is not previously available publicly should be published only with the clear consent of participants, so that the people written about have an option before publication to suggest changes or to prevent publication.
  • No content that transmits ideologies such as fascism, racism, sexism, LBGTQI-phobia, ageism, speciesism, and all other isms which encourage and legitimate the domination of some social groups over other social groups or forms of life.
  • In accompanying images, we expect the blurring of facial or other bodily features that enable identification, unless people are already well known.
