Although Mexico has a rich history of anarchist activity and a dynamic anarchist movement, Mexican comrades have not been able to sustain regular publishing activities. This has made it difficult for anarchists to debate ideas among themselves as well as introduce new ideas into the broader political culture.
This should change soon: comrades associated with Mexico City’s Collectivo Autonomo Magonista have recently initiated a new publishing endeavor under the imprint Cultura Libre (Free Culture).
They will publish books and pamphlets designed to nourish the discussion of revolutionary alternatives in Mexico and the Spanish-speaking world generally. They have already published a critical pamphlet on the university (Universidad: La Especialización de la Muerte) and, in the near future, will publish pamphlets on the popular struggle in Mexico’s San Salvador Atenco, the Plan Puebla Panama, as well as Gianfranco Sanguinetti’s Terrorism and the State and an anthology on libertarian socialism (Augestion & Socialismo Libertaria).
They request that comrades send books, financial contributions, and buy and distribute their publications. Although they are presently moving their office, they can be reached at email@example.com. Visit their website here: http://pagina.de/culturalibre-coop
