Join the Just Books Campaign!


Just Books was an Anarchist 'bookshop' that was opened
by the Belfast Anarchist Collective back in June 1978.
Just Books was more than just a bookshop however, the
premises included a cafe and print workshop and
provided a focal point for the collectives many
activites until it closed shop sixteen years later in
June 1994.

The Just Books collective disappeared for a while
after that but in recent years we have provided book
stalls at the Belfast May Day celebrations at St.
Georges Market, at numberous Grassroots Gatherings and
at other events. Our third catalogue is currently
being compiled.

Just Books are working towards opening a new centre in
Belfast. We are aiming to have things up and running
in time to mark the 70th anniversary of the beginning
of the Spanish Revolution - July 2006. To do this we
need some active solidarity.


Again we want to make Just Books more than just a
bookshop. We envisage a solidarity centre in Belfast
that incorporates 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. Ideally we
would also like to include a print workshop and a
projector for showing films. These are possibilities -
we are asking for your support in order to achieve
them.

At the minute this is how you can help:

Donate books to our multi-lingual resource library
(hundreds of titles have already been collected).

Buy a tee-shirt, printed by Organise! to raise funds
for Just Books. The design is a wild cat (you all know
the one) with Solidarity is Strength in text. Red ink
on black shirt or black ink on red. These are
available for £8.00 or 12.00 euro, plus a couple of
quid postage from the Just Books email address.

Buy a copy of ‘A Wee Black Booke of Belfast
Anarchism’, by Mairtin O'Cathain, for £2.50 or 3.75
Euro and printed by Organise!. Again all the money
raised from sales of this pamphlet will go to Just
Books.

Come to one our fund raising events… details to follow
as they are confirmed.

Put on a fundraising event for us.

If you are in Ireland request Just Books collective
stalls at your events.


We need to raise several thousand pounds, the more we
raise the more ambitious this project can become.


In Solidarity;
Jason for Just Books Collective
