    Oi oi.

    I'm Antonio, and I'm from South Africa.
    (Wouldn't be surprised if I was the only South African here)

    Been into punk for about 6 years, but I only recently ventured into the anarcho side about 2 years ago. I've decided that I wanna make a fuckin' difference and change the shit I see around me. My country is relatively fucked compared to others, although it is coming along. People are just generally pessimistic, and pessimism got fuck all changed.

    I'm into some pretty timid sounding style anarcho. Crass, Dead Kennedys, A//Political, etc...
    But I'm always up for being turned on to a new sound. I've started listening to some Crust and D-Beat too. That shit's rad. Gimme some recommendations, I'm stoked to hear some new stuff.

    Political views?

    I play guitar in my spare time, drink beer, and all that kinda shit.

    That's me in a nutshell.
    Long-live the underground.

    Hi there

    I don't know if you've heard of Zabalaza, but they could be a good place for you to make contacts in SA:


    They're class struggle anarchists who are more likely to see pacifism (as well as violence) as a tool rather than a political position. But you'll almost certainly find common ground :)

    I managed to miss a talk by comrades from Zabalaza in my local infoshop (Kebele, Bristol, UK) a couple of weeks ago, but I hear it was good. I hope to get an mp3 of it sometime.

    Changing the shit you see around you is always the best starting point! You may not be able to go any further than that personally but the effects you cause will. Stay positive and good luck.

    Got a lot of Discharge, and Disclose. In fact, I have at least five bands with the "Dis" prefix in the name haha.
    I like Wolfbrigade a lot, but you gotta admit, their songs do sound the same :/

    Shall do :)
