Go follow @ladszine for more!!! Where does zine culture come from? Patches and pins are now totally on trend and part of a fashion status. So what i s DIY? I think it's incredibly important to ask yourselves where this all came from and why people have been doing it and been part of this for so long/why people started it in the first place. Not only does it come with substance in a subculture that is fed up with the way things are, there is political context, a fight for justice and voices that scream to be heard and not silenced. What is DIY? For me, It's a way of life for people that are standing outside of society's shit. A way of producing something ourselves without the means of mass production and capitalist structure. It's living a way in which you stand absolutely against any fascist ideals such as gender, racism, transphobia, homophobia, absolutely no fascist ideals over anything that society has instilled into us. Its a community that cares about it, and cares about each other. It's a platform to speak out about the struggles of living, the rich for the rich while the working class are scrambling to survive while we are being robbed before our very fucking eyes, the housing crisis and homelessness, borders, police brutality and prisons. The DIY movement comes with more than just a hashtag, we need to not forget this or lose this, if it is becoming part of mainstream culture- it is not part of mainstream culture and it never will be-it defeats the objective and everything the DIY subculture has stood for. So, learn it, see it for what it is, be aware that people have been protesting and fighting for a longggg time to try make a difference. Reclaim your identity, and your power to be able to do whatever the fuck you want. Be kind to each other, understanding, with your mind open. No Borders, No Fascist ideals, Only Community.
