Welcome Visitor:

Cheap month, revolutionary publishing

Hi Jura Books friends and supporters,

Want to economically stimulate Jura? The Federal Government is injecting public funds into the rotting carcass of a privately profitable economy.
Why not divert and subvert this process by donating a portion of your
upcoming $900 cash handout to Jura (if you are a recipient)?

We've managed to raise $5,500 so far, but we still need to pay the bank
another $14,500 to permanently retire the mortgage and keep our
building. If everyone on this list were to give 10% of their cash
handout, we could easily make this happen. Details on how to donate

Alternatively, you could go wild at the annual Jura Books sale. The whole month of March is Jura Books Cheap Month! That means:
--> 10% to 50% off all stock
--> Hundreds of books for a few dollars each
--> And a special sneak peak for people in the Jura community (this means you!) on Sat 28th Feb - one day before the general public.

Also on Sat 28th Feb at 6pm: Revolutionary Publishing in an Age of Crisis.
Ramsey Kanaan, founder of the successful workers controlled publishing
houses AK Press and PM Press will be speaking at Jura. He will talk
about the trials and tribulations of making media in a time when media
is taking a massive beating (in all formats), when funding is drying
up, and social movements seem to be stagnating. He will argue that it's
more vital now than ever. He'll also speak about the set up, aims and
structures of workers controlled publishing.
