pagina.de.stânga is an autonomous political zine published once every two months, starting with March 2010. The name basically means the leftist page.
This zine is in Romanian language and is distributed at underground concerts, public manifestations and at other such events.
Each issue of this zine focuses on a certain matter, and has different articles and interviews, on several topics, but centered around the main matter. Articles are both new and translated, with sources indicated clearly. Interviews are only new. As indicated in the contact box, everyone is free to contact the zine and submit articles or interviews for review, and some of them make it in the zine, depending if they fit the topic of the issue.
