Quiver distro - rebel communications

2009 updates / 2006 catalog / technical notes / contacts

Summer 2006 (old) catalog:

The primary focus of this project is to supply these publications to community libraries and to other rebels who are going to reproduce and disseminate them in their local area. We spread words of liberation in mediums easily reproducible by anyone.

ORDERING: - This distro is not a business. Prices vary depending on your situation and what you are doing with the literature - but they are generally very low, just allowing us to recover our basic costs.
To 'order', send us a list of either the specific titles and quantities you are requesting, or just a general idea of the topics you are most interested in; and if you are willing to, tell us a bit about your project or your intentions for the literature. We will get back to you soon as we're able.

All pamphlets are free to prisoners, and we have an edited list to be sent in to prisons that's more likely to make it past the screws.

PDF FILES ARE NOW AVAILABLE! - Anyone in any city in the world can print out their own first-generation master copies and hand them out to their friends. While there are obvious advantages to digitizing our work, we proceed with hesitancy, for there is a great qualitative loss in the conversion of ideas and human expression in to data. With the introduction of any new technology comes greater efficiency - however, much is forefitted in terms of meaningfulness, quality and relationship. This is not a tradeoff that we should take lightly. When someone obtains these writings from the internet, there is no context, and context is at least as important as content. What does it mean that many young people now develop their revolutionary theory and strategy from reading articles on the web, rather than from discussions and experiences face-to-face with an informal network of friends, comrades, strangers?

Making electronic versions of these pamphlets available is meant to increase and enable, not replace, the distribution of tangible paper copies of them. So, print the booklets out and make copies to share, start a reading group, add copies to the shelves of your local infoshop or community library.

All PDF documents are quality master files, (not sloppily scanned low-resolution garbage) except where otherwise noted.

Please email us about serious formatting and typing errors in any of these documents, broken links, etc.

Re-publish and appropriate at will. If you are the author or editor of one of these publications and for some reason or another you would like us to take down the PDF file of your project, email and let us know.

See the technical notes and recommendations page if you need basic instructions on using the digital files. The short of it is that an imposed PDF is what you use for printing, and a 'PDF for reading' is for viewing on screen.

Analysis & Theory

NOTE: Writings such as these can be seen as earnest yet inherently limited attempts at communicating. You musn't just read them, so much as enter in to dialogue with them, starting from the basis of your own experiences and feelings and seeing where they connect with those of others'. Every true revolutionary knows that communication is not a matter of talking, but rather acting together.
