While at the local food co-op a few weeks ago I was thumbing through this issue after noticing that there was an anti-fracking article in it. Fracking is a huge issue in my area of New York, so naturally I was interested. Oddly enough, a voice in my head told me not to buy it. Imagine my delight when, shortly after that, I eagerly emptied a box of review materials on to the living room floor and this issue slid out. Well played universe, well played. As usual, my favorite section is the EF! News section that has updates on ecological political direct actions carried out around the world. Then there’s the prisoner update pages(Daniel McGowan is out now!) and a slew of great articles, such as the info on all of the farmer suicides that are taking place in India due to biotech giants getting involved with agriculture and a brief history of what Israel is doing politically, physically and environmentally to the land they are claiming as their God giving right. Plus there are articles on herbal healing remedies, notes on the 2012 Round River Rendezvous, Anti coal mining action in Scotland and a history of Luddism. As always, lots of great stuff, some common knowledge, some not, but always something new to learn. I hope we never lose this as a resource. (Jake)

For over a decade subMedia has been covering resistance movements from around the world. Our efforts have taken us to Mexico, Japan, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and all over North America. Our mission is to connect with the fighters on the ground and bring you the stories of those who choose to join the resistance.
In our next report, we take you inside the Quebec student strike, where massive street demonstrations escalated into continuous militant actions which lead to a repressive anti protest law and a generalized social strike.

New video from the Stimulator
This is the second video subMedia.tv has produced about the struggle to stop a natural gas transport project called the Pacific Trails Pipeline or PTP. TheUnis’tot’en, a clan of the Wet’suet’en Nation have built a protection camp to bock PTP, in so called British Columbia in Canada. This is the third time the Unis’tot’en have called for a convergence in their territories.
This year’s camp attracted over 150 people who came from as far east as Montreal and as far south as Florida. The camp organizers opted not to tap large environmental ngo’s for material support, and instead reached out to grassroots, community based allies.
