Well we finally got the bundles of CIENFUEGOS REVIEW 3 that we ordered, and out of the almost 40 copies that we received, we have about 15 left.
We received a letter from the Cienfuegos people about one month ago, in which they said that they had only 100 of REVIEW 3 left—which means that this is the last we’ll get.
We’ve just had copies of the latest BRATACH DUBH publications sent to us; the latest in a planned series of pamphlets.
The two latest pamphlets are: 1) WORKERS AUTONOMY, by Alfredo Bonanno and The Comrades of Kronstadt Editions (35 pp., about $1.00 — which should cover the cost of mailing); 2) THE ANGRY BRIGADE, Documents of the Angry Brigade and a chronology of events concerning the actions taken by the Brigade. The quote on the cover of this issue of the FE was taken from this pamphlet (28 pp., about the same price as the first pamphlet).
Both pamphlets will be carried in the bookstore in the very near future, but are also available by writing: BRATACH DUBH, c/o McGowan, 83 Langside Terrace, Port Glasgow, Scotland.
The following publications have come to our attention, but are not carried in the bookstore at this time. LAND AND LIBERTY: Anarchist Influences in the Mexican Revolution, by Ricardo Flores Magon, Cienfuegos Press, Box A, Over The Water, Sanday, Orkney, Scotland
BOXCAR: A Journal of the Womens Itinerant Hobos’ Union. Boxcar, 1001-B Guerrero, San Francisco, Ca 94110 (lots of good info for the traveler and non-traveler alike. Well worth the reading).
