‘Re-Start’ is the first issue of this new zine. A year on from the beginnings of Occupy, we take stock of where the radical movement is heading. Kym Beetson explores the ideas of the Global Suffragette Movement who demand global democracy as a means to achieve global justice for the 99%. Greta Levy takes a look at spaces for political action between protest and the polls and comes up with some innovative ideas for how to get involved and make a difference. Our first contribution for the reviews section comes from Tom Cutterham who looks at those on Twitter and the blogosphere across the pond and what they have to say about moving the radical movement forward. Hugh McEwan, Taiseer Shelhi and Isabel PG provide artwork. Portia Roelofs starts our ‘radical calendar’ series with a smattering of events, discussions and activities across the capital in October and November 2012.
