Welcome to Barricade Books and Infoshop[*]

Barricade Books / Infoshop is an anarchist infoshop currently located
upstairs at Irene Community Arts Warehouse, 5 Pitt Street, Brunswick,
Melbourne, AUSTRALIA. We have now entered our 12th year of operation,
having originally opened at 115 Sydney Rd, Brunswick in February, 1995
(where these photos were taken) and having moved to Irene in January, 2003
to make way for a yuppie cafe.

Who we are

The basic aim of the collective that manages Barricade is to provide
greater public access to anarchist ideas, and thereby encourage local
anarchist activism. For the purposes of the Barricade collective, an
anarchist is someone who believes that an anarchist society?a classless,
non-hierarchical society?is both possible and desirable, and who actively
works towards making this belief a reality.

What we do

Barricade Books / Infoshop sells a range of anarchist and radical badges,
books, comics, CDs, pamphlets, patches, posters, stickers, T-shirts and
zines. We organise meetings and public discussions, screen videos, and
host an extensive anarchist and activist resource library.

As an information resource centre, Barricade is a place where interested
people can go to chat, debate, read, meet, and (hopefully) learn. Being
collectively run, Barricade is not only one modest but practical example
of how anarchist principles can be used to organise communities and
workplaces, but also a dynamic and evolving creation of those who form its
membership. Zine archive, distribution point for free publications,
meeting room, concert venue, free school, mail drop for activist groups,
bookshop, kitchen, library: an infoshop can be each of these things and

Want anarchy?

The Barricade collective meets every fortnight. If you?re a local
anarchist and you?d like to get involved, please email us at the address
below with your details.

Postal address: PO Box 199, East Brunswick, VIC, 3057, AUSTRALIA.
