The Acid Left is a newly-launched hub for online and in real life happenings around class consciousness with an aim to present art and online creativity under fair conditions for its creators.


Working across platforms, we aim to create a forum of dispersed organisation that can coordinate creative opposition to the stifling practices of capitalism. We want to see a counterculture equal to those of the '60s to '90s and consider the meme, the stream and the online video as viable units to complement essential real life struggle.


The Acid Left is affiliated with the forthcoming independent publisher, Mysterioso Books, The Beyond Linguistics Reading Group, and Left Can Meme. You can support the project and get more of their content over on Patreon
