Anarchipelago Kollective

Anarchipelago Kollective is a group of multi-tendency leftists working in struggle against authoritarianism. Our story is that of unbelonging—though our origins are from the island nation-state known today as the Philippines, we are also moving through diaspora and displacement, through the white supremacist matrix of the United States, the rigid binaries of gender and sexuality, the space in between here and there. We have also come together out of shared frustration and disillusionment towards the hegemonic groups of the Philippine left.

Friendship Anarchy / Growing in the Cracks of Empire

Filipino kids trying out their hand in writing stuff on friendship, environment, feminism, religion, language, sociology, decolonization, and revolution.



An individualist and market anarchist publication. Freedom through freedom. You cannot institute anarchy, you tend to it. Uprooting a system in favor of another system repeats the cycle of oppression. If freedom is what we truly seek, then our praxis and mindsets should be outside the ideas of hierarchy and authority. If they punch downward, strike upwards.

Makó Micro-Press is a mode of relationship or “ugnayan” – in the form of a micro, self-publishing press – which aims to create and sustain counter-hegemonic cultures through zines and other DIY (Do-It-Yourself) artworks.
