With the October issue of Raging Chicken Press just out, it’s already time to begin looking forward to November. We are actively seeking contributions once again. For the November issue, we are especially interested in articles, videos, photos, and audio that document and engage the emergent Occupy/99% movement. We feel strongly that a publication like Raging Chicken Press can give voice to activists who are new to political organization as well as those who have been doing the long-term, tireless work of organizing. In fact, the rise of the Occupy movement has underscored why Raging Chicken Press exists. Have you taken part in one of the Occupy actions? Share your experiences, you photos, your reflections.
November also marks a kind of unofficial start of the 2012 elections. There is more at stake than election of a president. Across the nation and increasingly here in Pennsylvania, state legislatures are rolling back workers rights, gutting funding for public schools and services, signing over huge tax breaks to corporations while slashing jobs, and making exercising your right to vote more difficult than ever before. PA Governor Corbett’s proposed electoral college change would effectively hand the bulk of PA’s electoral votes to the Republican candidate in an end-around the will of the people (see Richardson’s article in the October issue). We are looking for people who are willing to put on their wonk hats and expose the radical right’s agenda. This becomes even more important as millions and millions of dollars is pouring into PA from right-wing front groups such as ALEC and the American Federation of Children.
We welcome all submissions that seek to give voice to progressive, activist communities of resistance. Become a Raging Chicken.
If you are interested in submitting your work, you can do so by sending an email to email@example.com. Please take a few minutes to review our Submission Guidelines to familiarize yourself with the kind of work we publish and the purpose of our publication.
Deadline for the November issue is Friday, October 28th.
As always, the earlier you get us your submission the better. We look forward to hearing from you!
