In the shadow of corporate funding and overt attempts to deny the game’s multicultural and working-class history. In opposition to racists and sexist attitudes within and surrounding the game. Jura is organising a match to reclaim football (yes, we mean soccer). A football match like no other you have ever been a part of. A match that will borrow and adapt anarcho-football rules and style of play, with any player able to substitute back for either team without formal restrictions on substitutions. And naturally it will not be gender restrictive, encouraging all to play! The general theme of the event will also aims to subvert the primacy of nationalism and patriotism during the Men’s World Cup period.Come join the Jura people and the anarchist community in a football kick around within an anti-racism, anti-sexism setting. Jura will also organise a people’s kitchen on the day.
Kick Racism out of Football!
Tackle Sexism in Football!
Shoot unethical companies out of Football Sponsorship!
No Winners. No Losers.

Anarchist football is a regular feature of North American anarchist bookfairs – and always a highlight, a pleasure, a joy.
The 5th Anarchist Bookfair will take place in Dublin the weekend of 29th May.
Doors open at 10.30 on Saturday the 29th of May in Liberty Hall, Dublin, there are also events on Friday and Sunday.
This May sees the return of the annual Anarchist Bookfair to Dublin, our fifth Bookfair to take place in the city to date. Starting from humble beginnings in the St. Nicholas of Myra Hall in The Liberties five years ago, last year’s Bookfair was arguably the most successful to date. Over one thousand people passed through Liberty Hall during the day with ten different meetings and workshops held discussing a wide range of topics ranging from Palestine to Left Unity, Iran to Shell to Sea, Social Centres and beyond.
Note: This event notice is being passed along in solidarity. I won’t be there and have nothing to do with the groups involved. I would go if I were in Dublin, but here I am on the wrong side of the globe… I’d be particularly interested in catching the discussion of “Revolutionary unions in Spain” and the talk by the Iranian feminist activist.
Even if you don’t consider yourself an anarchist, or have no idea what the hell an anarchist is, if you have never been to an anarchist bookfair, I highly encourage you to get along to one – if not this one in Dublin, then one in San Francisco, or Seattle or Toronto or wherever. The strangeness and hope and community you will find may change your life – and they are great places to meet and flirt – intercourse both intellectual and otherwise is always on the table, right next to the pamphlets on alternative parenting and making your own beer.
Schedule of events below…
Finding new ways to integrate sharing into our homes, neighborhoods, transportation, food, and other realms of life is one of the most powerful things we can do toward creating a more sustainable, equitable, and enjoyable world. At the same time, sharing brings interesting, yet worthwhile challenges. Figuring out what to share and with whom, sorting out sharing agreements, grappling with legal issues, planning for changes, and communicating collaboratively are some of the skills necessary to successful sharing arrangements. Please join us for a Sharing 101 workshop led by attorneys Janelle Orsi and Emily Doskow, authors of The Sharing Solution: How to Save Money, Simplify Your Life & Build Community (Nolo 2009). The workshop will explore ways of sharing cars, homes, yards, food, household goods, tasks, family care, work, and more. Bring your sharing ideas for discussion, or just come to explore the bold new world of sharing!

Support Left Bank Books!
Friends of Left Bank Books!
As you (hopefully) know, Left Bank Books is still alive and well, after 36 years in the Pike Place Market. We are still run collectively, and we still carry a wide variety of general books, while specializing in left-wing and anarchist materials.
HOWEVER—as you know, several independent bookstores have folded recently, both because of the economic crash, and competition from Amazon, etc. The demise of independent bookstores would also spell the demise of small presses, whose publications are ignored by the corporate chains.

If you’ve never played fútbol with a bunch of anarchists, it is an experience not to be missed. (It’s similar to playing ultimate frisbee with a bunch of freegans who found a huge stash of Red Bull…) And at 10pm in Dupont Circle it should really be a hoot. Check out the rest of the events at the link above…
April 3rd will be a European Day of Action to ban nuclear weapons. Mass actions will take place at every European NATO nuclear weapons base in Germany, The Netherlands, France, Italy, Turkey, United Kingdom, and Belgium.
