    As you may know, various groups have worked to organize the first annual (a)narchist bookfair to take place at the socal library on dec. 13

    The FNB chapter I am with (santa ana) will be serving lunch that day.

    Unless IRIS will have representatives at the bookfair (which I highly recommend), I would love to get some literature from you guys to distro at the bookfair.

    Lemme know whats up when you can

    Awesome, I work with SAFNB too… We don’t really have our own publications, just lots and lots of copies of lit we’ve stolen from other places, the Infoshop was just a conceptualization of radical organizing at UCI. I suppose I could set up something at the bookfair, either independently or in conjunction with safnb, I just don’t want to step on toes by distro-ing other peoples’ zines under this group’s name. I currently have a couple dozen copies each of about 10-15 pamphlets/zines, and I’m hoping to get a few more together in time for the really really free market, if i plan it out right i should have a nice selection available in time for the book fair.

    – John

    Cool man that sounds good and though I would hope noone would have a problem with their zines and lit being re-distributed…you just never know these days.

    feel free to email me

    in solidarity

    Hey dudes, I stumbled upon this zine on the internet called “Gay Shame Opposes Gay Marriage”.

    I’m trying to start a little distro at my school so I was hoping you guys could help me out with some more zines like that? Could you shoot me some links/tell me how I can download the ones you have?


  5. Marty said

    I like the Library section you have. It’s nice to see another active distro operating out of Orange County.
