This second issue of Asymmetry focuses on mobilization and organization. The struggle isn’t new, but many of those now involved are. The issues aren’t new, but they have become increasingly urgent. The politics aren’t new, but their extremes have been exacerbated. The work included in the issue sought to offer some additional nuance, potency, critique and vitality to acts of resistance.
