In the Spanish language:-

El Anarquismo Español: y la acción revolucionaria (1961-1974) - Octavio Alberola and Ariane Gransac

Las divisiones internas y desavenencias entre los libertarios de la
Península y los del exilio, junto al acomodamiento y al miedo a la
ilegalización de los organismos libertarios españoles en Francia,
condujeron a una progresiva burocratización e inmovilismo del
Movimiento Libertario. La esperanza de una intervención de las
potencias occidentales para acabar con el r&eacute...$27.50

TINA Stall

Hey all,

Your dear author and Mr Rocks trekked down to the This Is Not Art festival on Sunday and did have a very lovely time. Arriving at about 1pm, we made no hesitations to set up a stall and start disseminating artefacts of cultural revolution. I'm very happy that one of the first items to go was the latest Slit magazine!

We did run into some strife when, very sleepy, we tried to get on a train at 9.20pm. The last one leaves Newcastle at 9.10pm! The next train was due at 2.40am, and we were way too tired to go back and par-tay it up. So, there ensued several attempts to sleep in inadequate clothing in really cold spots - a park, the train, then Gosford station (where the next train ended up). At Gosford, we spend 2 hours in a platform lift because it was out of the wind.

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.
