My friends at Jura Books in Sydney need help! They are holding a cool raffle to raise money, with one of the big prizes being this great historic Australian political poster to the right. More info below and on the Jura website.
Jura Books is facing a crisis and an opportunity. Last year the bank that holds the mortgage for our property called in the loan. They asked us to pay $5,000 immediately and the rest – another $15,000 – as soon as possible. With the help of the Jura community, we managed to raise enough money to make that first payment of $5,000. But we still owe $15,000.
Jura is one of the few activist organisations in Sydney that owns its own property. This is an amazing achievement, built through the effort of members, supporters and friends over the last 31 years. The building is a stable resource for the broader progressive community, and in it we can prefigure real alternatives to the present society. We don’t want to lose our building.
We need your help to raise the remaining $15,000 – please buy some raffle tickets!
Jura is a not-for-profit community bookshop, library and organising space. We stock thousands of books that you won’t find anywhere else – anarchist, enviro, feminist, libertarian socialist, vegan, street art, history, fiction and more. We try to make these available to the community for the lowest possible price in order to build social justice and a better world. We also host community events – everything from gigs, poetry nights, and films to political talks and fundraisers for activist causes. Many different groups use our space, and we also maintain a library and archive of political poster art. We’re all volunteers.
