We are at a critical moment in human history. Our world continues to be wracked by catastrophic climate change, devastating wars, surging inequality, and historically unprecedented levels of human migration.

More and more people are recognizing that there is something drastically wrong with the status quo, and are now being drawn out of the quagmire of moderate centrism towards the political fringes. As anarchists we celebrate the crumbling of capitalism’s liberal facade, and the suffocating social peace it represents. And yet the revolutionary opportunities this has opened up are being matched and often outpaced by the dangers of reactionary violence.

The far-right has seized on this atmosphere of generalized crisis in order to scapegoat refugees and movements fighting for social and economic justice. Their calls for entrenched hierarchies and a return to even more authoritarian forms of nationalism are broadcast 24/7 through a dizzying array of prominent alt-right youtube pundits and well-funded right-wing propaganda outfits like Infowars and Breitbart News.

We at subMedia believe that anarchists and anti-authoritarians must build and support our own media infrastructure, not just to counter reactionary currents… but to go beyond that towards fighting for our own ideas. That’s why, for over a decade and a half, we have produced hundreds of videos showcasing anti-capitalist and anti-colonial resistance, providing an anarchist analysis of current events, and seeking to introduce new generations to radical concepts and movement histories that are often overlooked by the mainstream media. Our films have reached millions of viewers in dozens of countries around the world, and have inspired many people to stand up and fight back.

subMedia is a small, independent media collective that depends entirely on viewer donations in order to fund our operations. This is important because it means that our content is not only free of influence by political parties and government agencies, but also the NGOs and Foundations which our ‘progressive liberal’ counterparts subsist off of. We are unwilling to have our work constrained by such organizations… but that means that every cent of our funding has to come directly from our viewers.

Going into 2019, we’re hoping to first stabilize, and then continue to grow our collective, by bringing on one or more video editors and a dedicated social media administrator, in order to increase our output and our online audience. We’ve also got plans to expand our translation and begin putting out more videos in multiple languages. Lastly, we also want to return to producing more episodes of our A is for Anarchy and 5 Minute Indigenous Resistance videos, plus an increase in our stand-alone Video Ninja reports on struggles going on around the globe.

But in order to do this, we need your support. Please consider signing up to become a regular monthly sustainer — or if this isn’t realistic, giving a one-time donation. Like many of you, we’re very much looking forward to dancing on the ashes of this capitalist system…. but until then, we’ve got bills to pay just like everyone else. So please send some love to help sub.Media do what we do best.
