You can do it! 'Stay Solid!' lays the groundwork for the next generation of radical youth

Stay Solid! A Radical Handbook for Youth

by Matt Hern and the Purple Thistle Centre (editors)
(AK Press,
2013;
$15.00)

Though there are many things I wish I could have said to my 14-year-old self, I now realize I could boil it all down to one phrase: "read this book."

Stay Solid!: A Radical Guide for Youth is a beautifully chaotic scrapbook-style tome that gets across nearly everything a burgeoning activist would reasonably be looking to read more about.

Teaching the ABCs for activists to be

A is for Activist

by Innosanto Nagara
(Kupu-Kupu Press,
2012;

Change the conversation, support rabble.ca today.

A is for Activist.

B is for banner, bobbing in the sky.

It’s pretty clear from page one that this is no Cat in the Hat. Billed as a book for the children of the 99%, A is for Activist is the radical vision of Innosanto (Inno) Nagara, a graphic designer and social justice activist from Oakland, California.
