We live in a world today where we are told that we have "free press" and "free speech"; but do we? Or are we being controlled by the corporations who are taking over the world and taking all of our money? The general feel in our Western countries these days is that if you have money, you have power. Well we are taking that power back. We are saying that if you have words, if you have creativity, you have power. If the mass medias won’t tell us how it really is, then we’ll do it ourselves. Zinesters old and new and of every age will continue to write about the world as they see it, and distros will continue to encourage, promote and support the real meaning of free speech. We are not just part of the rat race; we’re here to make a difference.
