Hi Jura friends and supporters,

We don’t often ask for extra financial help, but now is one of those rare and difficult occasions.


More June News - Heaps of new titles at Jura

The shelves at Jura are bursting at the seams with all the new titles that we've had come in over the past couple of months. June saw eight boxes of books from AK Press Distributors, besides other publishers and distributors...and there were loads of local material in too, pamphlets, books, DVDs, T-shirts and hooded jumpers. There are new publications on: anarchist history, practice and theory, women's studies, environmental issues, current affairs, alternative
economics, labour studies, anarchist biographies....and so much more


April 07 News - Double Trouble

Hi everyone,

Great news for the anarchist movement in Sydney! Once again there are two anarchist bookshops in Sydney. After a long hiatus, Black Rose Anarchist Bookshop has reopened in an excellent new location: 22 Enmore Road, Newtown (1 minute from Newtown station). The relationship between Jura and Black Rose is stronger than ever before, with sharing of equipment, people, ideas and more. The plan is to build on each other's strengths in order to build anarchism in Sydney. Two anarchist spaces means double the fun for us and double the trouble for the rulers!

New printer for Jura (well, "A" printer for Jura)

We're getting a new printer, w00t!

This one does double-sided and works with linux. So it should be easy to make efficient use of paper and make zines and pamphlets.

One small step toward becoming a social and organising resource for anarchists in Sydney.


January Working Bees

From Sid:
Hi all,
just a brief report on yesterday's working bee - the first day of this week's frenzy of activity. Lots of work was done and much achieved - you will notice a revised shop layout, which added on to the work that Meela and Jeremy did last week. The lounge area was made more comfy and the tea/coffee area moved to that part of the shop. The centre of the shop has a new configuration that may well be addded to further down the track if this one works out as well as expected.
We also did a lot of work on getting the alcove area more in order, the storage area re-organised and prepared to move the library archives into it. This last move is aimed to make the upstairs middle room more useable for a variety of purposes.
We also had lots of interesting conversations/discussions/misunderstandings/arguments and explainations - all good grist for the mill.
A visitor from Ireland paid us a visit who volunteered to come in on Wednesday to help out. If anyone wants to come in too, please do. 12noon to 5pm (although we worked past 8pm yesterday, you can help out for as long or brief a time as you would like to).
Ciao, Sid.
