Volume 2 Number 3 Cover

Volume 2 Number 3 Content

Inside, you’ll find highlights such as

  • Various news headlines, mostly circa 2016
  • Nuclear history and current events
  • Cool maps
  • On-the-ground reporting by Robert Wells on the DEA’s failed scramble to reschedule kratom

Most importantly, there’s an update on the 2016 Orange County GOP fire, which we’ve discussed before. Although there have been no further arrests in the matter, local activist Katie Yow has received, and refused, a grand jury summons, apparently in connection. Grand juries are a legal mechanism to maneuver around the right to remain silent, and are powerful tools of state repression, so it’s great that she is resisting.

The cover

Hey yeah we’re back and this time we’re bad. Probably gonna piss off a couple of people with this next one, since we’re basically calling out entire nation-states and other system-level structures, but someone’s gotta say it.

The Inside – v2n1

 

Much can be learned from the propaganda emitted by the Israeli government. The IDF inflicts picturesque damage, the case against them making itself. On the other hand, with the Hamas rockets causing relatively minimal physical damage, we are not confronted with pictures of overflowing makeshift trauma wards. Instead, we are given cartoonish proclamations, accompanied by cartoons. “Hamas used funds for kindergartens for Gaza's children to build tunnels of terror to strike at Israeli kindergartens.” tweets the Prime Minister. Turns out the tunnels came out miles away from any kibbutz, let alone a kindergarten, and were used exclusively to target the IDF. ["Were Gaza tunnels built to harm Israeli civilians?" +972 Blog.  11 Aug 2014]  Anyone remember those cartoons of mobile WMD factories in Iraq?

Call for Submissions: Vol. 1 No. 3

The next issue will wrap up volume one of the Carrboro Provocateur, and we need you, the Carrbourgeoisie, to help fill its pages, so I don’t have to pad it out with the genes of Antarctic trout.

The theme of No. 3 is “Ding Dong SOPA’s Dead”, but don’t let that constrain your submissions.
