This is a great zine which I've been reading for years and even got to meet some of the people who make it at the most recent HOPE conference. Anyways, they just made another issue and thought I'd share the link for anybody looking to learn more about hacking.
Hackbloc is proud to announce the newest release of our zine, HackThisZine. You can grab copies pre-formatted for online reading and printing at https://hackbloc.org/zine.
This issue provides extensive coverage of Wikileaks, Cablegate, Operation Payback, and much much more.

Thanks to everyone who helps keep our bits flowing securely and to everyone who helped work on this issue of the zine: Ringo, Discordia, Anonymous, The Pirate Bay,
2600, the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair, Bradley Manning, the Wikileaks Crew, alxciada, anders, flatline, evoltech, sally, sexy hexy, frenzy, AnarchistNews.org (good work with the /ban trolls), postmodern modulus III, RiseUp.net, March-Hare Collective and everyone else who we forgot that is working to protect and support the
struggle. Thanks to all of those resisting police violence in their communities, all those facing state oppression, and those engaged in the struggle everywhere.
NOTE: Due to time and space constraints we were unable to include an article on the intricacies of the Assange rape case. A short summary of some thoughts is available on our site. Basically, just because he's Assange doesn't mean he isn't capable of sexual assault. In situations like this, it is important to take the allegations seriously and not silence alleged survivors simply because the truth is inconvenient for supporters of Assange and Wikileaks.
