November/December 2013

This issue of Briarpatch looks at the politics of precarity, labours of love, and the outsourcing of family obligations.

Comic artists Althea Balmes and Jo Simalaya Alcampo explore stories of Filipina migrant workers, and investigative journalist D’Arcy Handy reveals how the uranium industry bought the Village of Pinehouse — and what residents are doing to take it back.
