(en) Italy: Help support "Collegamenti Wobbly" [it]

Date Tue, 24 Jan 2006 17:21:14 +0200

After many years of adventures, sailing through the sometimes calm,
sometimes rough seas of class-struggle, libertarian and revolutionary
circles, "Collegamenti Wobbly" is now facing shipwreck. Our financial
situation this year speaks clearly: a growing deficit that we will be
unable to stand for much longer. The causes for this are many and indeed
are shared by other revolutionary publications - the lack of a nation-wide
distributor, the growing costs of printing and postage, and of course our
wish to keep the cover price as low as possible.

But despite these growing economic difficulties, one thing does provide
cause for comfort. The magazine, even though it has a small circulation,
does enjoy the esteem of all its readers, both regular and occasional.
More than one person has told us that it is irreplaceable and this can
only cause us to rejoice and to increase our efforts to keep the magazine

Unfortunately, looking at the situation realistically we find ourselves
faced with a stark choice: either we find the means and resources to
continue, keeping to our standard of quality and formal dignity that have
characterized "Collegamenti Wobbly" up to now, or rather than face a long,
slow decline with continual re-sizing and impoverishment (at least in the
opinion of the writer), we make the painful, radical, but honest decision
to close.

But we must make one last effort and so we appeal to our readers and
supporters to take out a special subscription to the magazine, to enable
us to get over this difficult moment, a material contribution in
recognition of the past, present and (we hope) future role of
"Collegamenti Wobbly".

On behalf of the editorial collective,
