Internationalist Books and Community Center is Moving!

ibookssignFrom Internationalist Books

Internationalist Books is moving and we need your help!

Internationalist Books and Community Center has been an invaluable part of our community since 1981. We are moving from our current location on Franklin St to Carrboro. Our new space will give us a better ability to host programs, projects and events, and make us better able to keep Internationalist strong and growing into the future. This move is a huge undertaking, and a huge leap of faith. We need our community’s support to make this move successful. Please donate whatever you can to pay for the costs of renovations, new bookshelves and furniture, and to help us weather the financial impact of a big move and establish ourselves firmly in our new home. We also want to invite our community to help with workdays in the new space, help us spread the word, and help us with a vision for our new space and the amazing ways our work can grow through this move.

This opportunity has presented itself in a way where we had to seize the moment quickly, so we’ll be announcing big fundraising events in the near future. In the meantime, there are lots of ways to donate and help us spread the word! (more…)

2014 North American Anarchist Black Cross conference fundraising effort

Give Money! Abolish Prisons!Dear friends and comrades!

The 2014 North American Anarchist Black Cross conference is a mere three months away and we have a long way to go before reaching our fundraising goal!  In an effort to really kickstart the final fundraising push, we are asking for your help in raising $2000 by midnight on June 22nd!  This money will help us cover the cost of the space for the conference.  OR it will help us cover airfare to fly in comrades from across the continent to join us in Denver.  OR it will help us cover the cost of food for the
weekend.  You get the picture…

For the last three years, our international conference has brought together dozens of people from all over North America who are involved in the struggle to support, act in solidarity with, and free our comrades. Rarely is there a time when we are all in the same space—sharing our ideas and energy, strategizing, building networks, and creating new projects to strengthen our struggles and movements. The conference has also been a time for intergenerational, cross-movement dialogue—a time to learn from the past and look to the future.

When you donate to the conference, your money is essentially seed money for the beginning stages of exciting new projects and the revitalization of old ones.  It is a contribution to the future of our movements and to the freedom of our imprisoned comrades.

But just in case you need more of an incentive…  we would like to offer gifts for money donated! (more…)
