New issue of Le COUAC out on the news stands

Now that FRANK has tanked, humor your funny bone - and brush up on your French - with Le COUAC (, a progressive political satire illustrated monthly out of Quebec, published ten times per year.

The latest issue to hit news stands has articles on the recent access to abortion Quebec government kerfuffle, daily impressions of two young activists just back from Venezuela, a searing commentary about Bernie Ecclestone's Nazi nostalgia, a report on the Anishinabe community blockading a dump site in Northern Ontario, an anarchist-feminist analysis of the prostitution system, a mural project honouring Canada's disappearing Native women, the latest news about our government's harassment of Arab refugees, my thoughts about the Pittsburgh killer's quest for a trophy wife or else, reviews of recent cutting-edge films, comic strips, records and books, and much, much more.

What better way to practice your French than digging in every month to eight pages of provocative and insightful social commentary (and cartoons!) by some of our most in-your-face female and male activists, all volunteers?!... (Or would you rather get your Quebec news from Margaret Wente or the National Pest! :-( )

Subscriptions are a steal at $35 all-inclusive for 10 advertisement-free issues lobbed every month on your doorstep. Your cheque should be made out to Le COUAC, and sent to 6940 rue Jogues, Montréal, Qc H4E 2Z8 CANADA.

And do feel free to pass this on to friends and allies, including your local librarian.

Ceci est un média alternatif de publication ouverte. Le collectif CMAQ, qui gère la validation des contributions sur le Indymedia-Québec, n'endosse aucunement les propos et ne juge pas de la véracité des informations. Ce sont les commentaires des Internautes, comme vous, qui servent à évaluer la qualité de l'information. Nous avons néanmoins une Politique éditoriale , qui essentiellement demande que les contributions portent sur une question d'émancipation et ne proviennent pas de médias commerciaux.

This is an alternative media using open publishing. The CMAQ collective, who validates the posts submitted on the Indymedia-Quebec, does not endorse in any way the opinions and statements and does not judge if the information is correct or true. The quality of the information is evaluated by the comments from Internet surfers, like yourself. We nonetheless have an Editorial Policy , which essentially requires that posts be related to questions of emancipation and does not come from a commercial media.
