'The System Has All the Traps' - DOPE 14

  • Cat Sims

Welcome to the Thunderdome. I was very very pleased to work on this illustration for Sleaford Mod @jason_williamson_'s piece 'The System Has All the Traps' for the latest issue of DOPE magazine. Out today! @dogsectionpress buy or read it in full here https://dogsection.org/press/dope-14/ "Class Consciousness elevates your perception I feel and so your options within the Thunderdome are more likely to be closer to obtaining Preference instead of suffering with Shit because I think you understand the mechanics of your position in the world through Class Consciousness and so therefore you start to own the means of your production if you should so wish. Two doors are placed in front of you that’s how I’m currently seeing it anyway. You either learn to make money out of this new perception or you become opposed to it thoroughly and activate your existence in a way that challenges this. Or both." - Jason Williamson ........................................... “Across Britain, from Brighton to Edinburgh, DOPE is distributed for homeless people to sell on the streets. People ranging from rough sleepers to asylum seekers can collect the newspaper for free, sell it for the cover price of £3 and keep the proceeds.” – New Statesman DOPE Magazine is a quarterly newspaper published by Dog Section Press. We distribute free bundles of DOPE to anyone who could use a little solidarity, to sell on the street. Working with a network of radical bookshops, social centres, homeless organisations and independent volunteers, we currently distribute 20,000 copies each issue. This is worth around £60,000 to our street-vendors – or £240,000 annually.
