behalf of the Just Books Collective I would like
to invite you to the launch of our new website on
19th July at 7.30 pm in the Belfast Unemployed Resource
Centre, Lower Donegall Street, Belfast.
19th of July 2006, the 70th anniversary of the 1936
workers' revolution that initially defeated the
fascist rising across much of Spain, the Just Books
collective will be launching its new website.
Books has a history in Belfast that stretches back
to the opening of the original Smithfield shop in
June 1978 by the Belfast Anarchist Collective. While
the shop closed its doors in June 1994 the Just
Books Collective has continued to provide stalls
at events such as grassroots gatherings and at Belfasts
annual St. Georges market May Day celebrations.
new online Just Books will carry titles on a wide
range of topics such as: Irish labour history and
politics, international labour history, anarchism,
anti-capitalism, feminism, communism, socialism,
syndicalism, sex and sexuality, current affairs,
racism/anti-racism, globalisation, the environment,
labour legislation and more.
the longer term we see the setting up of this website
as part of a project to create a labour resource
and solidarity centre in Belfast that will incorporate
accessible resources and information for workers
in struggle - in a premises providing a multi-lingual
resource library, a bookshop, meeting space, internet
access and a coffee shop. We would also like to
include a projector for showing films. This will
provide much needed resources and solidarity for
workers in struggle. We hope to open the centre
as a practical commemoration of the Spanish Revolution.
