Call for Submissions: Everday (A)

I want to show models of what long haul, everyday radical work looks like for folks getting involved in the struggle for radical/revolutionary social change.
I'm working on a zine project that I want to have printed and available at places like mass mobilizations. The working title is "Everyday Anarchism"and it will be about anarchist or anarchist-minded (doesn't have to be labeled that) projects going on in the United States right now. I want to show models of what long haul, everyday radical work looks like for folks getting involved in the struggle for radical/revolutionary social change.

It would be extraordinarily helpful if you could get back to me with already existing articles/essays, specific people I may be able to talk to or unpublished submissions regarding:

* Street medic'ing and what it means to be a radical medic in the US or internationally
* Food infrastructure for mobilizations/action campaigns (like Everybody's Kitchen and Seeds of Peace)
* Media and publishing (Cool publishing houses, radio projects, community media projects, book stores etc.)
* Building alternative economic models
* Housing rights
* Community organizing and solidarity work
* The arts
* Anything I'm missing that you think is important

I'm not interested in reinventing the wheel, so I'd like to include already existing narratives/interviews/articles whenever possible. If you recommend one and I'm interested, I will absolutely track down the creator, explain the project and get permission to use the piece.

Please direct recommendations/submissions/thoughts to  seamsandstory@riseup.net
