NOX #2 - xSacred Lifex - "A Zine About the Vegan Straight Edge Movement" (100 copies)
Night Owl X strikes back with this vegan straightedge, 12-page publication which documents the movement in Greece and beyond. This totally old school looking, cut n paste fanzine goes through a series of interviews with Greek people who are active in the local scene and embrace this particular lifestyle. The interviewees expand their views on various personal and socio-political matters (militance/activism, animal liberation etc). The zine also contains two extra interviews: one with US animal rights activist Peter Young and one with Fabio Raffaeli from the legendary vegan edge band xDestroy Babylonx. All in all, xSacred Lifex is a fresh outlook on the current state of the vegan straight edge movement which balances out militance with positivity! Additional info: 1st press 100 copies, November 2011.
