ARM – August 1994 – Article and reply to “Wits Student” newspaper

Members of the “class struggle” section of the Anarchist Revolutionary Movement (ARM), active at the University of the Witwatersrand, were interviewed for the campus newspaper, Wits Student. 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).
