Black Star is a new online anarchist news sheet that aims to provide irreverent and revolutionary news from the wee north. Written by members of Organise! in the north the focus is unashamedly local and working-class.

But the truth is Black Star isn’t entirely new. The first issue was put together back when cut and paste meant actually cutting and pasting. Clunky typewriters, photocopied, cut out and pritt sticked in images, letraset headlines. The anarchist propagandists of 80’s Ballymena were a dedicated bunch. What? Ballymena?

Yep, the very first Black Star was published in October 1981 by Ballymena Anarchist Group. They went on to become a component part of Organise! which first became an anarcho-syndicalist group in 1986.
