About Jura

At Jura Books, we are working to create a radically different world: one based on freedom, equality and justice for everyone, as well as environmental sustainability for all life on the planet. We believe this can only be achieved by an organised and politically conscious social movement, based on participatory democracy and workers control. Our collective aims to help to build this movement. We seek to bring the ideas of anarchism to ever-widening circles of people.

Miscellaneous: 

People's Blockade, melodic sounds and free guitar lessons

Hi Jura friends, 

It's time to turn up the heat on the coal industry, and their friends in government. The export coal industry is Australia's single biggest, and fastest growing contribution to the global climate crisis. Newcastle is already the world's biggest coal port, and is set to open a massive new coal terminal to triple current export capacity. This means tripling coal mining, razing bushland and ripping apart communities for more mines. The profits will be exported, but the devastation will be felt here and around the world. 

This madness has to stop. The climate crisis is deepening, and time is fast running out. Politicians are failing to take action against the rampant coal companies, so we have to do it ourselves...

Join Jura people this Sunday and hundreds of others in a peaceful occupation Newcastle Harbour,
and prevent the passage of coal ships. There'll be extra boats and plenty happening on the shore too, so come along and show your support!
