ACE is a self-managed social resource centre. We're open for groups or individuals to use who are trying to make a better society and improve their lives. If you have a project you want to get off the ground but are struggling for lack of resources ACE is the place for you. There's also different projects already happening at ACE who'd all love for new folk to get involved.
We welcome you to drop by when we're open or to come to one of our friendly open organising meetings (check website for opening / meeting times).
The Centre houses the Leith wholefoods co-op shop, has an infoshop, offers access to the Scottish Radical Library books & DVDs and free internet access.
We are child friendly and wheel chair accessible.
ACE exists to support and encourage people to take more control of their lives. We believe in people co-operating as equals to create a shared world free from exploitation. We work together in the spirit of mutual aid.
The purpose of the website is to provide a home for some of our publications on practical security for activists and campaigners, all of which are free to download.
We've put a lot of time into the Activist Security Handbook - it is now a whooping 70 pages of tightly written text - and we hope it will be of use to every kind of campaigner. Small parts are specific to the United Kingdom but the majority of it will be suitable to people working all over the world.
A 90s free festival fave, AOS3 resurrected themselves in 2007 and have taken their dubby punk sound and anarchic attitude back on the road. They're actively seeking gigs, particularly festivals, so get in touch!
ANFIBIO RECORDS officially started in 2001 inside the C.S.A. Dordoni squat in Cremona as a fanzine/distribution to later become a record label. ANFIBIO RECORDS is an independent label releasing OI!, punk, HC, ska and any kind of music related to the Skinhead culture. ANFIBIO RECORDS' main purpose is to promote and distribute street music, always ghettoized or ignored by mass-media and critics. ANFIBIO RECORDS isn't simply a record label/distribution but it's also a no-profit booking agency for shows in Italy. ANFIBIO RECORDS also distributes t-shirts, pins, stickers and fanzines. ANFIBIO RECORDS is looking for labels interested in trading/distributing its releases. ANFIBIO RECORDS and its bands is strictly antiracist/antifascist.
Atomic Pollution is a one man anarcho-punk band 100 % D.I.Y. So don't expect that polished, soul-sucked sound. A.P. is anti-authority ,anti-capitalism, anti-war, anti-fascist/racist...striving for a better world. Power is poison, destroy power not people!! (A.P. does NOT perform live). Anarchy&Peace!!!

On the 25th October 2010 our guitarist JJ was sentenced to 3 years in prison for his part in the SHAC campaign against Huntingdon Life Sciences (you can write to JJ, contact info on website).
As such, therefore, Active Slaughter no longer exist. However, the possibility exists that we might be back one day and so we've decided to leave this site up and running for people to see what we were about and download some of our stuff etc, etc.
