[Ed. From their web page:

The Brian MacKenzie Infoshop

* Will open its doors in spring 2003!

* Offers radical books, zines, independent cds and records, t-shirts
and other items including Slingshot Organizers.

* Is non-profit and cooperatively-run.

Statement of Purpose

* For some time now DC has suffered from a conspicuous absence
of a center for radical thought. While many communities play host
to various venues for the expression of radical ideas, the activist
counterculture within the Beltway has been forced to subsist on
compromise when it came to the dissemination of radical ideas.
It is unfitting that Washington, DC, an international bastion of
capitalism and greed, should be bereft of any venue for dissenting
opinions. The Brian MacKenzie Infoshop will be a center to encourage
the proliferation of radical ideas and to provide a haven and
meeting/organizing space for independent thinkers in the D.C. area.

The Brian MacKenzie Infoshop will be a non-profit, cooperatively
run space at 9th and P Streets, NW, Washington DC. The infoshop will
serve to distribute and sell radical literature - books, zine, newspapers
etc as well as independent cd's and records.

The space will also provide free public computer and internet
access, host a radical reading library, an activist event bullentin board
and help to plug people in to the local activist community, by providing
space for meetings and events when possible, distributing info on local
activist groups and events and providing a space for people to meet, discuss
and share radical ideas. The Brian MacKenzie Infoshop hosts concerts, radical
speakers, workshops, zine fairs and other events regularly and will continue
to do so out of the space on an even more regular basis. We are an open
collective that makes decisions by consensus and operates in an anti-
authoritarian, non-hiearchical manner. We are anti-capitalist, and stand against
racism, sexism, homophobia and all forms of discrimination. We work to promote
and support the fight for global justice and total liberation.
