Up the Witchpunx #4: Radical Hope

e-zine
Up the Witchpunx Radical Hope cover

Emily Dickinson said that hope is the thing with feathers, but the creators of Up the Witchpunx have produced something far grittier and more substantial. Radical Hope is a zine born from punk, witchcraft and street-level activism; it has “claws and teeth.”

Radical Hope “looks like cop cars on fire, politicians resigning in disgrace, and sabotage of planetĀ­-killing industrial capitalism…” However, Radical Hope is also a cultural and spiritual change document, born from the Oly Witch Crew’s collective work in linking activism, occult and magickal work and a punk rock ethos.

Along the way, the writers and artists dispel notions of fluffy new-age sentimentality and do-no-harm politics. “Our magick bashes back. We believe that industrial capitalism, if unchallenged, means the death and defilement of the Goddess and all she represents. Thus hope is found in insurrection, and not in anything else.”

The angels and prophets of Radical Hope are queers, punks and suicide survivors who have clawed their way back from their personal abysses bearing dangerous gifts. Radical Hope is their manifesto.

Includes interviews with artist, dollmaker and healer Kook Teflon and illustrator and The Next World Tarot creator Cristy Road. Featuring work by Rust Belt Jessie, Dylan Ce, Myke Moon, Adriana Lopez, Christian Lee, Malachi Phelps, Spiggy Suarez, GG Irkalla / Lillita Lustre and Ezmyrelda Andrade.
