"Free Women of Spain" by Martha A. Ackelsberg
were made ready for print by Czech Anarchist
Library (AL), a pivotal project of anarchist
education in Czech language. The book is a fresh
new original Czech translation. Despite most of
things ready for the release of this important title,
funds are running low. AL Editor managed to
collect only a half of what is necessary.

After a very succesfull summer 2002, which saw
three new books, released by AL, making
substantical contribution to anarchist education,
economical problems are again here. During June
and July we have published "Kronstadt 1921" by
Paul Avrich, "Cuban Revolution - A Critical
Perspective" by Sam Dolgoff (with special
introduction for Czech readers, written by Frank
Fernandez from MLCE) and "Anarchism and
Ecological Survival" by Graham Purchase (this
book has been a common venture with Slovak
comrades from Breaking Point anarchist
publishing house, who made the translation - we
provided pre-press and funds). This had
practically exhausted our funds.

All translation, computer and pre-press work is
done on voluntary basis. Books are sold for low
price (usually 3.5 USD), enabling almost
everybody to acquire them. Books are making
almost no profit and sometimes hardly pay back
the expenses. What we get from distribution, is
immediately put into publication of another title. 

Input of 1000 USD is needed to publish the "Free
Women of Spain". In this moment we have got
only half of it at our disposal. We deem
publication of this book to be very necessary,
especially regarding to situation in 

Czech anarchist community, which saw recent
increase of anarchist-feminist activity and

Therefore we kindly ask you, friends and
comrades, to consider supporting this project.
Every little bit helps.
