Collective Unrest



Collective Unrest is an underground political resistance magazine. The poetry, fiction, essays, photography, visual art, music, and otherwise contained herein are meant to produce a feeling of humanity, unity, unrest, social justice, and urgency. 

We do not believe in hatred, we do not promote violence, and we do not accept ignorance. We hate that we even have to say this but we do NOT tolerate racism, homophobia, xenophobia, fatphobia, sexism, transphobia, agism, ableism, misandry, misogyny, or any other forms of bigotry. 

We are a place of respect, compassion, empathy, understanding, and solidarity. We value human rights, sincere, informed expression, and truth, above all else. We are fiercely anti-Trump and anyone who supports him, but he is not the only hateful force we are resisting. There is injustice everywhere. 

Collective Unrest is a place for fair and just resistance. A place to express your concerns, fears, and experiences. What is real is what is important. Share your human experience with us.
