Calling all Anarchists!

It's been a while since I've updated my blog, and will be something I have to consider in the very near future.

In the meantime, a callout to all Australian Anarchists - Interviews are wanted for the University of Technology Sydney, Vertigo Magazine. They are asking questions about how Anarchists feel about the dreaded Global Financial Crisis.

Here's the email I was sent.

I am one of the editors of Vertigo, the official publication of the University of Technology, Sydney Australia. In light of the G20 protest in London, we are currently running a piece on whether the global financial crisis (GFC) will be the catalyst for a rise in anarchism or act as the catalyst for change envisioned by the movement. Considering the work you do on your blog 'Anarchy Downunder', we were wondering if you would be willing to take a few minutes and comment on how anarchists interpret the GFC and what it means for the movement. The piece is also going to cover issues such as the way in which anarchism is perceived in the public sphere and government attitudes. We would really appreciate it if you could get back to us as soon as possible as we are on a tight deadline. Also, would it be okay for us to quote sections of your blog for the article? You will be credited for anything we use. Please feel free to visit our website at

If you're an anarchist and you'd like to speak to the media on behalf of the 'anarchist community', please contact Donna Yan at
