Out of the Ruins

I usually just read zines straight through, but I stopped reading this one several times before I finished it. Not because it’s super long or anything like that, it’s just written in a style that I found difficult to get through.

It seems very rambly and verbose. The first half or so of the zine is about the author having to wait for a court case to go to trial before he could leave Australia. However, despite reading all this I still wasn’t really sure exactly what the author was on trial for. Something to do with protests, something to do with the police, but I couldn’t be positive over what was going on.

I found a lot of the rest of the zine to be sort of similar. A lot of words, but perhaps not that much being said. I did agree with a section that talked about why you should continue fighting the fight when the world overall seems fucked. Every victory, no matter how small, is a victory. It’s true. Changing even one person’s mind can sometimes be enough.
