The sales of our anti-fascist t-shirts have made it possible to donate over $3000 USD to different anti-racist fundraisers during the last year. 2016 was a year where the upsurge of racism and extreme right was felt in different countries which means that now more than ever, the struggles against the rise of fascism must be a priority.

Causes we donated to :

 

 

The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund

In June 2015, the Antifa International collective launched The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund as a standing fund to provide immediate support to anti-fascists and anti-racists anywhere in the world, whenever they found themselves in a difficult situation as a result of their stand against hate.

Modeled on the defence fund run by the Anti-Racist Action Network in the late 1990s/early 2000s, The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund accepts proposals for support from anyone.  Decisions are made by a crew of individuals and groups who have dontated more than $20U.S./€20/£15. Those decisions are arrived at by consensus whenever possible and by a simple majority vote in situations where consensus is not forthcoming.  The Fund publishes quarterly reports on its activities here.

The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund has been endorsed by The Torch Anti-Fascist Network in the U.S.; Föreningen Fånggruppen in Sweden; and the  Anti-Fascist Network in the UK.   The Fund now has a proven track record, having donated thousands of dollars to help out forty-eight different anti-fascists and anti-racists in ten different countries in its first year, helping with things like hospital bills, medical expenses, repairs to arson-damaged property, legal defence bills, court fines, help for families, and support for prisoners.   Full report here!

Based on this past year, we’ve crunched the numbers and to ensure that we can help out every anti-fascist or anti-racist that needs it over the next year, we need at least $6000.  That will be enough to ensure that we are able to provide substantial support to our allies in the fight against hate when they need it the most!

Contributing to The International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund is an excellent way to demonstrate real solidarity with anti-fascists and anti-racists around the world when it matters the most.  Please donate what you can today and please share this campaign with your friends!

Sales tax

 

There is usually no sales tax to pay. However, in the US, recent changes in US legislation now impose sales taxes but only for a few specific states. For more information, check out this list of the only places where sales taxes are required (list subject to change)

 

Customs fees

 

These charges are separate from sales taxes. Statistics show that the imposition of customs fees is a rare situation although there is always an unpredictable possibility. The shipping option “International Standard” with USPS (US Postal Service) is recommended to minimize the risk.

In some countries, an import tax may be required when a package goes through customs. The process is random and unpredictable – there is no way to completely avoid the risk. All international online orders are subject to the possibility of customs duties, no matter who the sender is. Be assured that our shop doesn’t have hidden charges.

The amount of the customs tax is proportional to the total value of the order. Some postal services sometimes impose additional brokerage fees to perform customs clearance. This fee is usually charged when the package is shipped by International Premium with a private company (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.). By default, the standard mail (USPS) is used to minimize the risk of customs charges imposed at the reception and reduce the potential costs of these.

Numerous warnings are present on the website and in the order confirmation email. The responsibility to pay the amount requested by the customs of his country is unfortunately the customer’s. However, the recipient has the right to refuse delivery and ask the postman to return the package to the sender without paying the fee. We refund the entire order as soon as a package is returned to us.

The frustration of customers being taxed is understandable, but the store can not be held responsible for fees charged by customs in the recipient country. The import tax is for the importer (the client) and not the sender. To complain about this issue, you can go to your customs agency, but their response will be that the importer is still responsible for the costs which true for all international purchases.

Customs duties on foreign products are a protectionist measure of the capitalist system. By taxing consumers who import products from abroad, the government recovers a portion of sales taxes that escapes it.

 

For more information

 

For more information about customs fees, many articles are easily found on Google. You can also contact the customs or the postal service in your country for more information.

What Wikipedia says:

A tariff is a tax on imports or exports (an international trade tariff). […]  A customs duty or due is the indirect tax levied on the import or export of goods in international trade. In economic sense, a duty is also a kind of consumption tax. A duty levied on goods being imported is referred to as an import duty. Similarly, a duty levied on exports is called an export duty. A tariff, which is actually a list of commodities along with the leviable rate (amount) of customs duty, is popularly referred to as a customs duty.

Solidarity with Rojava revolution and Syrian refugees! A donation of $1000 was shared among different causes and humanitarian organisations. We think that in addition to the urgent need for humanitarian aid to a war torn region, there is also a growing hope of a revolution that gets underway in Rojava.

 

Rojava Revolution

The dream of founding a free and independent Kurdistan has never been closer to reality than now. Alongside the war in Syria, the autonomous territory of Rojava (West Kurdistan) was born, based on principles of direct democracy, equality, ecology, feminism and collectivism. The Rojava revolution is inspired by democratic confederalism, an ideology closely tied to libertarian municipalism, an ideology from the American anarchist Murray Bookchin.

 

ypjIn Syria, taking advantage of the destabilization of dictator Bashar al-Assad’s regime, the kurds began building their autonomy and organizing self-defense. From the beginning of the conflict, the kurds created their own self-defense militias against the barbary of Syrian army. They are called the YPG (People’s Protection Units). This guerrilla quickly became Rojava’s military organization by demonstrating its superiority over the Syrian forces and the Islamic State.

 

The YPG also has its feminist branch called the YPJ (Women’s Protection Units). This women-only brigade represent over 40% of YPG forces. The jihadists have quickly learned to fear them because the belief among them pretend that the gates of heaven will be closed to those who are killed by one of these women.

 

rojava antifaAnarchists and communists also fight in Rojava under the banner of the International Freedom Battalion, based on the same principle as the International Brigades who fought against fascism during the Spanish Revolution of 1936.

 

 

 

kobaneSince the beginning of the war, the city of Kobane (the central region of Rojava) is one of the most devasted place. Now liberated from the occupation of the Islamic State by the guerrillas, the city is unfortunately destroyed at over 80%

 

Even if the dream of a “new Chiapas is still felt, much work remains to be done and it must necessarily begin with the reconstruction of KobanĂ® and aid to 5 million Syrian refugees.

 

$1000 for Kobane and Rojava Revolution !

 

rojava2Kurdish Red Crescent: Humanitarian non-profit organization founded in 1993 and now have a team of 120 volunteers. The organization is involved in war zones and other countries to help those affected by poverty. They have also provided aid to the Yazidis, an ethnic minority massacred by the Islamic State.

 

rojava4KobanĂŞ Reconstruction Board – Help Kobane / Firefund : The organization aims to clean the city of Kobane from the debris of war and help rebuilding infrastructures and schools. They are also behind Firefund crowdfunding campaign (a new campaign is planned for November).

 

 

rojava1aHanna Böhman is a canadian who fought with the YPJ (Womens’ Defence Unit), a women’s guerilla fighting against Islamic State. After fighting 4 months with the kurds, she’s going back to Rojave to continue the struggle with her comrades. A crowdfunding campaign is organized to help her get better equipement.

 

 

moasMigrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) is a foundation dedicated to preventing loss of life at sea by providing emergency assistance to migrants and refugees in distress situations. They have saved over 12,000 lives so far.

 

 

rojava3The Rojava Electricity Project: Crowdfunding campaign to rebuild the electricity system that was destroyed by the occupation of the Islamic State.

Note: Until December 31, 2015, the Canadian Government will match all humanitarian donations for Syria by donating the same amount. Thus, the government will give one dollar for every dollar given by Canadians to a charity organization, meaning that donations from the shop are doubled.


Two types of prints are available: ink printing (digital direct / D2G) or flex printing (vinyl heat transfer). For more information on the types of available impressions and their different characteristics, click here.

 

Ink printing (pixel files)


â–ş
Recommended resolution:
3000x3000px (300DPI)


â–ş
Maximum file size:
10MB


â–ş
Accepted file formats:
.PNG (Recommended)
.GIF
.JPG (No transparent background)
BMP (no transparent background)

 

â–ş Size adjustment:
You can always decrease the image size without loss, whereas increasing the size may result in a distorted and more “pixelated” result.

 

Transparent background

 

Pixel graphics are used as the master copy for Digital Direct printing. These graphics are printed on the shirt exactly as they were uploaded. If your graphic contains a background, this will also be printed as it appears.

 

A common desire is to print a cropped element of an image without the background. A white background is not sufficient here as printing the design – even on white products – would result in printing the white area as well. This is why the background needs to be transparent so that our printers will ignore it.

 

If you do not want the background to be printed on the shirt, you must crop your design (meaning to cut your design from the background). By doing this, you make your design’s background transparent.

 

faq_freigestellt2.jpg faq_freigestellt.jpg faq_nichtfreigestellt2.jpg faq_nichtfreigestellt.jpg

 

Most graphics editing software programs show transparent backgrounds as a white-gray checkerboard pattern. If you upload a graphic with a transparent background, the color of the shirt will appear in those areas after the printing is finished.

 

Note: The PNG format is recommended for optimum quality. Most other formats do not recognize transparent zones and automatically add a white background to the graphic while recording.

 

Flex printing (vector files)


â–ş
Accepted file formats:
.AI
.SVG

We recommend a maximum size of 11″x11″ (28x28cm) to make your design printable on as many products as possible. The maximum printing area is 15″x15″ (38x38cm).

 

â–ş Line thickness:
Lines as well as other parts of your design need to have a thickness of at least 1.5mm. The gap between 2 separate areas cannot be less than 1mm.

 

â–ş Convert to curves and paths:
Objects and texts selected for print must be converted to curves and paths. Pixel graphics cannot be used.


â–ş
Anchor points:
Use a minimal number of anchor points.
Maximum 2000 anchor points by colors (max 6000 for a 3-colors design)

A new donation is added to the list as part of our support to feminist struggles. Women On Waves is a Dutch pro-choice organization that specializes in providing safe abortion means for women living in countries where abortion is illegal. Some of these services are offered on a boat that has a custom-built mobile abortion clinic.

 

As the Pussy Riot support ceased shortly after their release, the sales of our feminist t-shirts will now be used to fund this organization. We have just sent the first donation of $300.

 

Mobile abortion clinic

 

When wow2Women On Waves visits a country criminalizing abortion, women requesting this service are loaded on the ship to sail in international waters. The application of national criminal laws, and therefore abortion laws, extends only to territorial waters; beyond 12 miles (or 2 hours of navigation), it is Dutch law that applies aboard the boat, making it possible to offer safe and legal abortion services.

 

Women On Waves was created in 1999 by the physicist Rebecca Gomperts. Volunteers have made trips in Ireland (2001), Poland (2003), Portugal (2004), Spain (2008) and Morocco (2012). The activities in Portugal contributed to the legalization of abortion in February 2007.
