Take-home zines


Our infoshop has a nice collection of fanzines that you can read and take home. We have materials on such topics as: feminism, queer politics, radical organising, anarchist theory and practice, animal liberation, green anarchy, gentrification, patriarchy, racism, antifascism, do-it-yourself, anti-nationalism, anti-capitalism and many more.

You can find zines about struggles and resistance from occupied territories with names such as hungary, canada, france, england, u.s., romania, spain, italy, belarus, germany, poland, austria and so on. You can read them in hungarian, english, spanish, french, romanian, russian, polish etc.

All zines can be read inside the Klit space, where the infoshop is hosted. Some zines you can take home, for a small donation that we use to print other zines.

Our collection can also be used for radical events, where there is a need for a distro-table, a space where information can be distributed.

We will keep posting about some of our special zines and journals. In the meantime, visit us during Infoshop and Klit opening hours:

Read, share, and fight! knowledge is power!


Far-right in Hungary: a discussion

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

To commemorate the international day against fascism and antisemitism, the Budapest Infoshop invites you to a discussion about the current situation of the far-right in Hungary. Extreme right ideas are finding a fertile ground in this country. Racism is manifested through hate speech and violent actions against Roma and Jewish people, and not only. Far right groups have paramilitary organisations that harrass people while patrolling in the villages and towns of the countryside. Budapest is also the scene of numerous far-right street actions, far-right symbols, statues of nazi leaders, and even shops with far-right merchandise. At the same time, the public reaction against these problems is still very low. Join us next Monday for an open discussion about all these things, where everybody can bring and share their own experiences.

When: Monday, 11.11., 7pm

Where: Klit

[Klit is a non-authoritarian, non-racist and non-sexist space. for more information, please visit ]

Previous infoshop projects

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

The current infoshop is not the first of its kind in Budapest. for a few years already we have had different projects. We organised many events and brought a lot of people together. Here are some of the traces that we left:

Film projection: Ungdomshuset

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Monday, 4th November, at 7pm, Budapest Infoshop will show a movie about the Ungdomshuset squat in Copenhagen. “69” is a documentary about a large group of young people who did not see themselves, culturally or politically, as part of established society. In 1982 they lawfully occupied what was known as the Youth House (Ungdomshuset) at Jagtvej 69, on the outskirts of Copenhagen’s inner city. The film portrays the group’s situation in 2007, documenting the stormy last six months of the Youth House’s history, where the radicalized group rage against the establishment. By following the inner circle of activists, we learn more about the group, the reasons for their actions, and the cause of their predicament.ung 69

What is the infoshop?

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Despite the sprereadingad of internet and other media, access to information is still unequal and barred by censorship, surveillance and copyrights. Our infoshop is a place where you can find free printed materials (books, zines, leaflets, posters, stickers) on radical topics. It is an autonomous, self-organized and do-it-yourself project based entirely on donations. There is a large section of materials that you can take home, and the rest you can enjoy reading in Klit’s comfy lounge spaces. The infoshop is a space where you can discover and exchange ideas and thoughts, where you can have free and unlimited access to information. Our space is open to anybody, regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexuality and gender identification, regardless of their so-called education level, social status or abilities. It is a space that is free of authoritarian, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic or speciecist ideas. Our materials focus on anarcho-feminist, anti-fascist, animal liberation and ecological, DIY and punk, anti-racist and anti-nationalist issues – among others. We want to have regular events where we show underground political films, have presentations of different struggles from all over the world, and generally intermediate the exchange of ideas and stories between people that are interested in such topics.

We are hosted by Klit:
