Jason Brannigan, Just Books Collective • 8 July 2006

On 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.

On 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.

Just 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.

The 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.

In 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.

There is no such thing as a dirty word. Nor is there a word so powerful, that it's going to send the listener to the lake of fire upon hearing it.
