Election campaigns and voting allow people to participate in politics, but only to a very limited extent. Various participatory options exist, including referenda, self-managing collectives, consensus decision-making, small-scale government units, and randomly selected decision-makers.

We are starting at 4pm sharp, so that those who want to, can go to the rally in Blacktown afterwards. Merata Mita’s classic 1983 Patu! is an amazing and inspiring documentary film. It is a record of the mass direct action that took place in Aotearoa New Zealand in 1981, in protest against a South African rugby tour and the apartheid it represented.

"War paralyzes your courage and deadens the spirit of true [humanity]. It degrades and stupefies with the sense that you are not responsible, that 'tis not yours to think and reason why, but to do and die,' like the hundred thousand others doomed like yourself. War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder."
- Alexander Berkman, What Is Communist Anarchism?
Jura Books is on the land of the Wangal people of the Eora Nation. The Jura Collective acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the Land and pays our respect to Elders past and present. We support the ongoing struggle of Aboriginal people for land rights, self-determination, and justice.
A note on accessibility: The lower level of Jura (the bookshop area) is wheelchair accessible. However the library and toilets are up steep flights of stairs. We can move most meetings and events downstairs upon request.
