TalkShop really engaging!

Jura Books hosted the first of many discussion evenings called "TalkShop at the BookShop" on Friday evening. After getting off to a late start (no-one said we were perfect), we ate a plate of Thai food from fabulous local restaurant Som-O and drank a beer to break the ice.

A short talk from Jacinta helped to kick things off. We discussed all things anarchism till about 9.30pm. Discussion touched on a wide range of issues - from the nature of the future society, to the path to revolution; from the place of Black Blocks to the failure of representative democracy and on to the need for an environmentally sustainable future.  The discussion was pretty free-form and laid back. It wasn't just inexperienced anarchists
answering the 'new people', though there was a little bit of Q and A going on. Jura Collective members were surprised and delighted to see how much knowledge and interest in anarchism was displayed by all those new friends who came for the first time.

Window Smashed at Jura

November 2005. A drunken guy comes into the shop proclaiming something to the effect of "look at the state of the world and you people are the cause of the problem", then throws a brick through the window.
