The content of the article, which appeared in August 1994, was accurate but the heading (“Chaos Rules Okay”) was a caricature. ARM responded with a poster (“Anarchy not Chaos”) that included the article and the ARM reply.

Azanian Anarchist Alliance – 8 August 1991 – “Boycott Unilever”

A leaflet (also printed as a poster) for an unsuccessful protest against Unilever, which was recruiting at the University of the Witwatersrand under the heading “Discover a New World at Unilever.” The print quality of the pamphlet is not very good. The boxes in the middle were sourced from a booklet included in the Chumbawumba album of 1986, Pictures of Starving Children Sell Records, which exposed multi-national corporations (like Unilever), the aid industry and the oppression of the colonial and formerly colonial world. (Materials like this booklet were a major influence on the Azanian Anarchist Alliance / AAA).
