Extracts: “Tales from the Pit” #3 ca. 2004: anarchism, anti-authority + Phambile Motsoaledi anarchist centre and project

The following PDF has some extracts from Tales from the Pit # 3 – this was a ‘zine linked to the South African punk scene. While it was heavily focused on band reviews and interviews, it sometimes included more political (and generally anarchism-influenced) material.

This extract includes material from a Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF) member, directed at more political members of the subculture (“Anarchism,Punk and a Healthy Disrespect for Authority”) and a report on the ZACF-linked project -centred on the Soweto-based ZACF affiliate, the Black Action Group (BAG), to create a social centre in the Motsoaledi squatter camp inside that township.  This was part of a larger “Phambile Motsoaledi Community Project” linked to the ZACF.  “Phambile” translates as “forward!”

Alert readers will note that these two articles also appeared in the one-off Libertarian Offensive, also linked to ZACF, previously posted here.
