Black Flag 236 (2014)

This issue of Black Flag, which came out after a hiatus in 2013 in which no magazine was produced at all, began a period of annual publishing. Among the key articles was a cover story reflecting on the sometimes difficult organising of that year's AFem 2014 conference, a prescient analysis of Osborne's failed austerity programme, and a still-relevant analysis of the ways in which protest policing have dovetailed with the slow course of justice to both deny campaigners their rights and leave people in legal limbo for years at a time.
