I did this rough sketch a while ago, been meaning to make a finished version but it hasn’t happened yet, not sure if it will. Everytime I try I end up staring out the window instead. So I’m calling it a day, be gay, do crime.

“From 2010 until today, the Solidarity Fund has been trying to obtain a regular and consistent political, moral and material support for collecting funds, which derives primarily from the conscious participation of each and every one of us, as well as from groups and collectives, that contribute to the continuation of factual solidarity. Continued state repression, however, results in a large number of political prisoners and legal costs, and consequently, in particularly high material needs. At this moment, the Solidarity Fund supports 24 prisoners on a regular monthly basis.
In many cases we also try to cover -as much as our (financial) capabilities allow-the legal expenses and bails of comrades who are persecuted for their political identity, their actions or even for their family or comrade relationship with imprisoned militants. ~ The slogan “no one left alone in the hands of the state” is becoming more crucial and tangible these days than ever. We urge you to defend it once again in practice. Factual solidarity will again be our weapon. UP UNTIL THE DEMOLITION OF THE LAST PRISON NONE OF US IS FREE SOLIDARITY WITH POLITICAL PRISONERS ” Solidarity Fund for imprisoned and persecuted militants, 2020

New block printed patch, Piss on Ausfailure!
I carved this block out of Japanese vinyl & unfortunately it’s refusing to transfer solid opaque inks, so I’m thinking about re-carving it out of rubber (sigh). I’ve tested 3 different types of black inks & they all printed various shades of grey. The 2 darkest prints I managed to make I gifted to friends (I’ve been waiting for them to receive the patches before sharing this). I’ll see how I go with making a new block etc, & fingers crossed patches will be available from AQAB distro in a week or two ????
I finished off these block printed patches & they’re now available from Anarcho Queer Agitation Bureau (AQAB) of Nihilistic Tendencies !
Hand carved & printed on mostly upcycled cotton & poly-cotton fabric, various prices, from $1 – $7.
All proceeds to cover material costs so I can keep making this stuff!
100% of proceeds from this print run will be directed to CJ Palmer via Scarlet Alliance (Australian Sex Workers Association). CJ is a trans woman & a sex worker currently being held hostage in Australian immigration detention. The money raised will give CJ access to toiletries, clothing, phone credit and other necessities.
