10 May 2004. Thanks to M.


This is an open call for articles, inks, digital media, or audio files on the topic of insurgency.

Submission deadline is May 15th for concepts and June 15th for a final product.

Your work will appear in the first issue of Galeropia, a digital magazine produced by Why War?.   Galeropia's vision is a nonviolent theory and practice more potent than the prevailing reliance on polemics and death. Our method will be a targeted expansion of the movement's self-knowledge, aesthetics, and practice.  Each issue of  Galeropia will be released without prohibitive copyrights.

We invite all interested individuals to send a proposal, thesis, or sketch to submissions@galeropia.org by May 15, 2004.

Why War? is a nonprofit think-tank promoting counterthought.  Why War?'s work has consistently provoked intelligent and effective activism.  Our recent Diebold campaign sparked a national nonviolent disobedience campaign that was covered in every major newspaper and wire service in America. [1] We invite you to take part in our newest creation: Galeropia.

"Although it is true that this counterthought attests to an absolute solitude, it is an extremely populous solitude, like the desert itself, a solitude already intertwined with a people to come, one that invokes and awaits that people, existing only through it, though it is not yet here." - Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, "A Thousand Plateaus".

Questions about the flexibility of the deadlines or your topic should be sent to submissions@galeropia.org
