      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Believe it or not but preparations are underway for this year's
SchNEWS book. We are after articles, pics, cartoons, photos,
subverts, and stuff from the period April 2002 onwards. News of
stuff you've been part of globally or locally - send it in.

A theme running through the book this year is `nevermind yer
anarchist or lefty utopias... let's hear about some real, grassroots
activities which are already happening for a sustainable future.' It
could be a social or community centre ... or alternative transport...
or even footie fans rejecting the corporate curse and starting their
own club. Sometimes the solutions come from unlikely sources.
What about those Argentinians who have started their own public
assemblies and barter markets after their country collapsed and
took all their money? To build a sustainable world we need to find
answers to all the everyday needs ranging from food, housing,
education, transport and even policing through to an unbiased
media; plus art and music (and sport) which isn't dominated by
money. We want to gather a range of stories together so we can
get a picture of what we're going to replace this corrupt system
with, when we get rid of it. Big or small, global or local, UK or
abroad - let's hear about those projects that bypass the globalised
greed machine.

But it's not all going to be deadly serious - the satirical and
graphical theme of the book will be a look at old kids annuals -
seeing the war on terror through the eyes of a boy's war comic,
and all the sustainable things you can make with sticky-back

If you would like to be involved in helping produced the book -
whether that be in writing serious and/or satirical pieces,
graphics, sub-editing, get in contact. If you want to write an
article please contact first, and the deadline will be about mid
March. The book will be out for mid June!!

We also want more people to read SchNEWS but need your help
with distribution. How about handing copies out at local gigs,
university, school, record shops, cafes, on the bus? We can either
send 9 copies a week for the cost of a first class stamp, or better
still for our long serving mailout crew, you can get SchNEWS
emailed every Friday morning in the PDF version so it looks just
like the printed copy, then print out, photocopy and distribute at

AND We still need a hand to shift more of our SchNEWS of the
World books. With most of the countries radical bookshops
closing, we need your help in tracking places down that will sell
books for us. Do you know a friendly shop that might want to
take some copies on a sale or return basis? All proceeds go to
photocopying and distrubuting SchNEWS.... and occasionally on
a packet of biscuits or two.....Or what about ordering a copy of the
book from your local library. The ISBN number is 09529748 6 X
