Resistant Culture played Indianapolis last Tuesday night at Indy’s Jukebox. They performed flawlessly with Katina trained in classical guitar who absolutely shredded. Anthony Rezhawk (vocalist for Terrorizer since 2005) has unique sounding vocals, where he includes Native American chants to give their songs an emotional tribal feeling. Their lyrics about the environment and ideas of extinction are truly moving. Ben is their remarkable drummer who was also a member of Axiom. He is involved with Gaian Mind, a collective located in California that helps educate youth about how to sustain the planet. Please visit their page! http://gaian-mind.org/community/
Ben gave me seeds to grow called red amaranth. This green is similar to the taste of spinach, is easy to grow, and beneficial to your health. It has vitamins A and C, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, folate and a good amount of protein (30% more protein than rice, sorghum and rye). It is rich in the amino acid, lysine.
Not only does Resistant Culture have brilliant music, lyrics, and a unique tribal aspect to their music but they are activists with hopes for a better future. If they’re playing a show near you, please attend and support these wonderful individuals.
One week ’til this show in Chicago! Shaman Records 13th Anniversary Show!

Vegan Winter Seitan Stew by Jolinda Hackett with Lorena Novak Bull, RD
I made this stew a couple nights ago and it was delicious. It’s easy to make and a perfect meal during a cold night.
Ingredients – Serves 6
- 2 cups chopped/cubed seitan
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 5 cups vegetable broth
- 2 potatoes, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon sage
- 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/3 cup water
- In a large soup pot, heat seitan, onion, carrots, and celery in olive oil for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently until seitan is lightly browned.
- Add vegetable broth and potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add spices, and cover. Allow to cook for 25-30 minutes until potatoes are soft.
- In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water. Add to soup, stirring to combine.
- Cook uncovered for another 5-7 minutes until stew has thickened.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste
Fair and balanced.

A year has passed since the free Nyki poetry contest. The contest brought hundreds of poets together from across the globe in support of wrongfully convicted artist, poet, and community activist Nyki Kish.

While we reserve the one time privilege of publishing submitted work in both the magazine and poetry anthology, the author retains all ownership/copy-right over all that they contribute
All poems are considered by Nyki, names of the authors are removed prior to consideration, and while this contest’s coordinators cannot afford to award every contributor a prize, every poem is valuable and a winner in Nyki’s eyes (she even asked that we try to refrain from terms like ‘winners’).
Please do know that every poem serves to brighten Nyki’s day while she struggles through the dark day of prison to get her freedom back.

If you hate the way that women are not only raped but then blamed and shamed for being raped…
If your blood boils at the knowledge of millions of women bought and sold and abused and degraded in the global sex industry…
If you want to puke when you hear Christian fascists moralizing that women should “keep their legs closed” and you want to scream when you hear of another abortion clinic being attacked, another doctor being stalked, another law restricting women’s right to birth control or abortion being passed…
If you are infuriated by how pornography has become more violent, more degrading, more cruel, and more humiliating towards women even as it has become more and more mainstream…
If you are sick of the way women have been trained to hold their tongues, suppress their rage, and remain silent in the face of this all out war against their lives and their humanity…
You need to be part of the August 4 – 14th intensive effort to
TAKE PATRIARCHY BY STORM.

RESIST is one of the most relevant anarcho punk bands of Profane’s Existence. This special focuses on their legacy and offers a complete collection of all their recordings as well as apparel promoting the bands new 7″ and anarcho ideals.
PE Special #7: RESIST THIS! Comes with…
-Anarchist black flag shirt
-Resistography double CD
-Resist-Another Day in Paradise 7″
-PE Zine #56
The zine features art and an interview with punk rock illustrator, Amy Toxic. The zine also includes a bonus CD with over 30 tracks of underground thrash and crust tunes. Bands featured in the zine are Murder Disco X, Protestant, Blackout and more. ORDER NOW!
We are seeking submissions for a zine on being both working class and vegan, to decenter veganism away from the politics of privilege and consumerism.
For many of us, buying whatever we want, flying around to animal rights conferences, or going this or that vegan band’s reunion in another country or state is simply not an option. For many of us who struggle with poverty as a lived experience the middle class liberal politics of voting with your dollars and buying overpriced fancy over-packaged goods is alienating and unrealistic. For many of us the food bank is our grocery store and dumpster diving after a house show isn’t something you do to be cool, it is something you do simply cause you can’t afford to buy good food. Our hope is it will help to be a resource of lived experiences for those who can’t relate to the mainstream vegan middle class clique, and that it would be full of useful strategies for coping with poverty while maintaining a vegan way of living.
The term ‘working class’ is ambiguous and many people use it to mean different things. For the context of this zine the term working class will refer to people who work dead end jobs at near minimum wage, or live on welfare or disability, or who struggle to pay rent each month, or are living on the streets or in homeless shelters. We are not referring to people who work high paid union jobs or work as roughnecks in the oil patch or logging industries. The point is to share the experiences of those who have struggled economically just to meet their basic needs yet feel maintaining a plant based diet is important to them.
Submissions should be between 1/2 a page to 5 pages in length (single spaced). We are open to many formats, from personal stories, to personal essays, to critiques, poetry, recipes, cartoons, jokes, or rants and tips. You can write about your struggles with food, or with mainstream liberal vegans, working with animals, why a plant based diet is important to you, nutrition, activism, wild harvesting, dumpster diving, or about how you have navigated the various barriers to eating healthy on a low budget and useful skills or information you have learned along the way.
Deadline for submission September 30
