Bessie Smyth Foundation in Jeopary


The Bessie Smythe Foundation are about to lose their funding and may
have to close by december if funding is not restored. Bessie are a
feminist pregnancy options counselling and referal service. With the
federal  governments push to fund pregnancy “advice” lines outsourced
to anti-abortion organisations like the salvation army, smith family
etc, it is doubly important that organisations like Bessie continue to
exist. The state government has forced Bessie to a critical point by
its lack of funding.
Below is a letter sent out by an activist friend, and also the form
letter that Bessie are asking people to send to the minister. Writing
letters is better than nothing at this late stage.

New titles @ Jura (19 August)

Stupid White Men, Michael Moore, $12
- Michael Moore's screed against "Thief-in-Chief" George Bush's power elite, hit No. 1 at Amazon.com within days of publication. Why? It's as fulminating and crammed with infuriating facts ....... and as noisily entertaining as a wrestling smackdown. Moore offers a more interesting critique of the 2000 election than Ralph Nader's Crashing the Party (he argued with Nader, his old boss, who sacked him), - with a new introduction about how his publisher tried to stop its distribution & how a humble librarian from NY suburbs forced them into getting it out of the wharehouse.
