We steal secrets

"Now, I'm going to be very candid, right? We steal secrets..." So says Michael Hayden, the head of the CIA under Presidents Bush II and Obama. This is no surprise: States have been keeping their own secrets and trying to steal ours for as long as we've had to live under them. But in 2006, they suddenly faced some competition. An international, online, non-profit organisation appeared, founded by an Australian and dedicated to providing a secure and anonymous way for those of us with access to corporate and government secrets to safely make them public: Wikileaks.

Crisis and Struggle in Spain today - film, talk and exhibition

"In Spain we have an anarchist movement that is more or less solid. It's like a rock with cracks in it. We have serious internal problems, but we have a strong movement of squatting… we also have a strong culture of music, zines, books, information to share and relationships between areas that connect lots of different people. We have a web." - Mario, an anarchist in Madrid interviewed recently by Jeremy Kay.

Wendy Bacon talks anarcha-feminism

"Being an anarchist feminist means becoming conscious of all struggles for liberation, not letting the struggle for women’s liberation become the struggle for white, middle-class, able-bodied, straight heterosexual women’s equality under capitalism.

Political Perspectives: 

May Day!

"Laws: we know what they are, and what they are worth! They are spider webs for the rich and mighty, steel chains for the poor and weak, fishing nets in the hands of government."
Pierre Joseph Proudhon

We are not in the least afraid of ruins - we are going to inherit the earth

"It is we who built these palaces and cities, here in Spain and America and everywhere. We, the workers. We can build others to take their place. And better ones. We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing in this minute." - Buenaventura Durruti

Library working bee

Monday, March 18, 2013 -
1:00am to 4:00am

Jura's library collection, the Fanya Baron Library, is having a meeting and working bee from 2pm-5pm on Sun 17 March. We'll be finalising our Donations Policy, making decisions on recently donated books (including a large and awesome one from John B), and spreading out the collection on our brand-spankin'-new shelves. If this sounds like fun to you - and it sure does to us - come down and hang out.
