Last week (19 July) was the 75th anniversary of the Spanish Revolution. Between 1936 and 1939, more than eight million workers and peasants participated in a revolution that turned anarchist ideals into a reality in their factories, farms and schools.
Capitalism is stumbling, empire is faltering, the floods and cyclones are intensifying. Yet many people are still grappling to understand these multiple crises and to find a way forward to a just future. It is the time to arm ourselves with knowledge and develop the skills we need to make a new world. A good place to start is with the educational events at Jura this month (not to mention hundreds of newly arrived radical books)!
Jura Books is on the land of the Wangal people of the Eora Nation. The Jura Collective acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the Land and pays our respect to Elders past and present. We support the ongoing struggle of Aboriginal people for land rights, self-determination, and justice.
A note on accessibility: The lower level of Jura (the bookshop area) is accessible for people using wheelchairs or with other mobility impairments. However the library and toilets are up steep flights of stairs. We can move most meetings and events downstairs upon request.
