(en) [Indonesia] Yogyakarta: Libera Infoshop is raising funds for a new space By ANA
Wed, 30 May 2018 08:26:27 +0300
The Libera Community Space is organized by a group of anarchists in a horizontal and
egalitarian way. We promote themes such as gender and sexual liberation, economic
equality, and other socio-ecological themes, whether in the form of writings, art or
social movements. ---- We are openly egalitarian and not religious or ideologically
dogmatic. We are open to the participation of all people, regardless of their contexts.
However, we do not want to get involved with political parties, NGOs, or anything
institutional. We are committed to building a truly horizontal and self-organized
community. ---- Context ---- In 2016, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, the collective Libertas
was formed. He started several discussion panels, classes on anarchism, and also got
involved in the creation of one of Indonesia's anarchist sites, anarkis[dot]org. Then, one
of the individuals from the collective decided to set up a small café and infoshop: Libera
Community Space (Café, Books and Infoshop).
Inspired by the anarchist tradition, we decided to unite our efforts, seizing the moment,
and having our own place. We provide a wide range of activities, such as a meeting place
for political and cultural initiatives, film screenings, a bookstore, and building a
stronger network of the anti-fascist movement.
What we do
In collaboration with many anarchist publishers - such as Ikarus Press, Pustaka Catut ,
and Nihilis Media - Libera also functions as an infohub for curious people who are
interested in anarchist and radical thoughts.
From 2016 to 2017, there was an initiative to build an anti-fascist network in Yogyakarta
and Libera became the basis for it. Since then, individuals who are active in Libera are
involved in many projects, such as:
* Anti-fascist organization
* Publication of books ( Ikarus Press, Pustaka Catut, Nihilis Media )
(We translate and publish books from a wide range of anarchist thinkers, such as Emma
Goldman's " Anarchism: What it Really Stands For ", Murray Bookchin's " Ecology of Freedom
," " Armed Joy, " by Alfredo Bonnano, " On the Poverty of Student Life , "" Under the
Black Flag: Anarchist Writings in Dutch-Indies, "and we are currently working on Alfredo
Bonnano's translation of Anarchism and National Liberation Struggle .
* Managing the counter-information website: agitasi.noblogs.org
* " Dapur Nomad " kitchen cooperative
Since then, even with all our limitations, Libera has thrived. We have received many kinds
of people: local anarchists and travelers, students, activists, curiosxs, and even
Marxists trying to convert other people to Marxism. Libera has achieved a lot, and we want
to achieve even more.
Libera is not just an infoshop or café, but also a community space, a bookstore, and a
free internet zone where we always work to empower community networks, expand our outreach
network and fight for our cause. However, since the frequency of anarchists in Central
Java has grown, we would like to reorganize our workplace, coffee, cooperatives, and
provide a place for anarchists and traveling activists to rest or to meet with groups and
organizations from different cities.
If any of your friends are in Yogyakarta, our location can be easily found. You can just
type " Libera Coffee and Book " in Google Maps. Of the 6 people who are involved in Libera
, we work mainly as writers and translators, freelancers, illustrators and baristas.
Most of us do not have an academic degree, but we have been able to use part of our
personal income for the infoshop. I hope this little introduction convinces you to help us.
What we need
Above all, we need a bigger place. We hope that by having a bigger place, we can have a
collective house where anarchists and traveling activists can take place to stay while in
Yogyakarta. Our current location is too small for this. We also hope that in this new
location, we can do a number of other projects that we can not do in our current space
because of limited space, such as organizing a larger bookstore, home gardening,
self-defense classes, and other ideas that may arise from moment we already have the place.
The estimated cost is about 1,800 USD. However, we would like to ask for your solidarity,
whether in the form of books, financial aid, or helping to spread these words.
There will be a sign of thanks from us if you decide to help us. We will send some
collections from Ikarus Press and Pustaka Catut . If you would like to request them,
please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com .
And if you're in town, our gesture of appreciation will also include a printed art.
