JUST MONTHS AGO we distributed: As of April 1, 2004, the Santa Cruz Anarchist
Infoshop has now officially opened, come to 509 Broadway to check it out.
There is a huge anarchist lending library, a giant zine collection, free tea,
amazing people, soon-to-be free public internet access and computer publishing
access, and much much more. Come see for yourself. It is open Mon-Fri 3-7pm,
Tues and Thurs 'til 9, then Sat and Sun from 11-7. See you there!
AND NOW, Today the recently opened Santa Cruz Anarchist Infoshop at 509 Broadway
was served a one month notice of terminating our rental contract with the
"Resource Center for Nonviolence". This came as somewhat of a surprise to us,
because until today we had not received any warning or notice of complaints.

In a scheduled meeting with an infoshop volunteer, Bob Fitch (RCNV
property manager), handed over the letter and informed us that he was
terminating our rental agreement and that it was not negotiable. He
went on to list a series of complaints about our use of the space,
claiming there were two pages of them (though he won't provide us
with the list). Bob says that our presence in the space, and 'our smell' is
interfering with his ability to rent the adjacent offices. He also explained
that if his decision was challenged by a sit-down or occupation of the
space, money for all the RCNV's legal fees would be charged to the
individual who signed our lease.

We are asking people to call/write Bob and the Resource Center for
Nonviolence in support of us keeping the space here, though the
situation doesn't look at all hopeful.
