The recent PRISM scandal has threatened the otherwise spotless reputation of the National Security Agency. In response, we have partnered with our dear friends in the NSA to produce a Customer Appreciation Page for everyone’s favorite online profiling organization.
Our first outreach project to promote awareness about the PRISM program and the NSA in general is a state-of-the-art sticker suitable for mobile phones, computers, and a wide range of other electronic devices. Sport one of these on your laptop to let everyone know where you stand; take a roll of these to the computer lab to educate your fellow students or employees!

OK, so we’re still not lovin’ the cops—but how do we live without them? In our sixth installment of the Ex-Worker, CrimethInc’s twice-monthly anarchist podcast, we follow up on our last two episodes about prisons and police with a discussion of how to stay safe without the state. We also hear a Croatan Earth First! organizer reporting back from the Round River Rendezvous and the campaign against hydrofracking, review the latest issue of Fifth Estate Magazine, discuss some listener feedback about the politics of anarchist support for the Cuban Five, and share plenty of news and events.

Last winter, we released the Catharsis full discography; it sold out almost instantly. In response to popular demand, we have re-pressed it, this time as two double gatefold LPs with oversize booklets including all the original artwork.

Fed up with your job, or stressed because you can’t find one? Daydreaming of a world off the clock? Tune in to the second episode of the Ex-Worker, our twice-monthly podcast of anarchist ideas and action.
Why is this podcast called “the Ex-Worker”? In this episode, hosts Alanis and Clara join a friend in a café to discuss work and how it works, in the first installment of our series exploring anarchist critiques of capitalism. Other features include a special report on 2013 May Day actions around the world, a review of Silvia Federici’s “Caliban and the Witch,” and an interview and reportback from a Canadian anarcha-feminist conference, as well as news and upcoming events, with music from Underground Reverie.
To celebrate May Day, we present the debut episode of the Ex-Worker, a twice-monthly anarchist podcast.
Each episode of the Ex-Worker offers an in-depth look at a different field of anarchist thinking and practice, rounding it off with news, reviews, profiles of current anarchist projects, upcoming events, and more. This episode focuses on the anarchist roots of May Day as a radical workers’ holiday, starting with the Haymarket affair of 1886. It also includes a profile of the Lucy Parsons Center in Boston, a review of the journal Modern Slavery: The Libertarian Critique of Civilization, brand new music from Underground Reverie, and a great deal more.
Let no one accuse us of fiddling while Rome doesn’t burn! We’ve been hard at work on a new book that picks up where our others leave off, continuing our offensive against the status quo on the terrain of language itself.
In the tradition of The Devil’s Dictionary, our Contradictionary assembles a wide range of wit and whimsy. This is no mere miscellany, but a lighthearted work of serious literature, concentrating a wealth of ideas and history into aphorisms and anecdotes.
Whence do Stockholm Syndrome and Broken Window Theory derive their names? What is the common root of aristocracy and democracy? Who gets diagnosed with Anarchia and Drapetomania? How did voting kill Edgar Allen Poe, and why is a crater on the dark side of the moon named for the man who blew up the Tsar? Alternately scathing and sublime, Contradictionary pulls back the curtain from the war within every word, revealing the conflict behind the façade of the commonplace.
