Adbusters is looking for fired-up, postcool, revolutionary-minded cultural creatives!


Hey all you existential diggers & new world dreamers out there,

Tactical Briefing #36 is out now! Here’s a taste:

“Defying all cynicism, the passion on the streets keeps burning … Now a new tactical model is emerging: the strategic pincer —> We attack the global financial system from above with big bang protests, uprisings and revolts —> concurrently we attack the global financial system from below with hundreds of daily move-your-money actions at the 35,000 branches of megabanks worldwide. We beat the shit out of global capitalism — metaphorically speaking of course — and then we escalate towards a series of global solutions…”

PLAY JAZZ – Adbusters is looking for fired-up, postcool, revolutionary-minded cultural creatives!

If you’re a writer who's overcome despair, found a new path, put your ass on the line or witnessed something profound then send it to us for processing. Adbusters is on newsstands throughout the English speaking world — a Spanish edition is coming soon — and we catalyze global shifts! We also encourage zeitgeist miners who have come across a killer meme, know philosophy’s next turn or are deeply tuned into the intimate side of the global movement to send us deep links, scans from books or snapshots from their streets. We pay writers by the word and give miners a finder’s fee if they were the first to send us a piece that we publish… So shoot us stories, photographs, poems, campaign and activist news on a number of fronts:


Stories that get to the heart of our crisis, propose radical unheard of directions and make connections between the self and the wild – True-cost pricing – Climate Anxiety Disorder – Rewilding – Trash Aesthetic


Hot bursts from the stewing mental environment – Cultural health – Ecology of mind – Cognitive illusions – Mental breakdown of Nations – Ad Spoofs


How to put some sand in the wheels of finance – Redefining Progress – Bionomics – Islamic banking – Indie capitalism - Bitcoin - KILLCAP


How to challenge, overthrow, detourne, remake - #OCCUPYMAINSTREET – Badiou, Žižek, Critchley - Spiritual Insurrection - Regime Change


From the well-trodden streets to the foothills of the unknown – Meme Wars – Battle for the soul of the left - How to stop whining & live!


Birth of a new aesthetic – The clothing, the music, the packaging, the homes, the money, the feel of a radical tomorrow.

I will send you my work, Adbusters. And when you publish it, be sure to get my name right. You won't soon forget it.


It's not the pennies per word gratuity that is important...

It's that someone more important than you can make a lot more than you by publishing your work.


What's that green stuff pouring out of that guy's head?

Does it symbolize the 'green movement'?


It symbolizes the intellectual skills of high school and university drop-outs who comprise the majority of the readership of this blog.


Theatre for Liberation in Afghanistan:

Gordon Fischer

greetings revolutionaries, rebels, radicals and readers.
opportunities are occurring in spontaneous and often unexpected ways, this documentary is the result of many such celestine prophecy-esque events in the past year. All who read this magazine will be inspired:

"The key to a democracy is an educated and informed electorate." -Thomas Jefferson.
Schools serve societies. If people are not educated, if people do not have the basic skills to be truly active citizens, democracy simply can't function. What type of society is the public education system in America serving?
democracy: rule by the majority
plutocracy: rule by the wealthy
ALL CHILDREN LEFT BEHIND is a 30 minute documentary that seeks to answer this vital question.
