Paperback / 120 pages

System Crash is an activist guide to making revolution, a call to arms. Written by Neil Faulkner, Phil Hearse, Nina Fortune, Rowan Fortune and Simon Hannah, System Crash argues that revolution – ending the rule of capital and the state – has become an existential necessity.

Capitalism came into the world, Marx wrote, ‘dripping from head to toe, from every pore, with blood and dirt’. Now, the ageing system is putrescent and gangrenous. But the last decade has seen explosions of revolt from below, firecracking across the globe, toppling dictators, resisting austerity, protesting racism, defending abortion rights, fighting for democracy. Here is the embryo of an alternative future.
