The Charles H. Kerr Company, the world’s oldest nonsectarian publisher of socialist and labor literature, is putting together a compendium entitled Who’s Who in U.S. Prisons: 1984. The book will gather short sketches of those imprisoned for labor, feminist, environmentalist, anti-racist, peace, anti-imperialist and other such activities. It will also include persons whose offenses are not strictly political but who are victims of racist, sexist and anti-gay prosecutions. The Kerr Co. asks defense committees and civil liberties organizations, as well as prisoners themselves, to write Charles H. Kerr Co., 1740 Greenleaf Ave., Suite 7, Chicago IL 60626 with information on such cases.

A group of Montreal anarchists have recently pooled their personal resources to purchase the building which houses the Librairie Alternatives Bookstore. This is a non-profit project whose purpose is to: establish a libertarian documentation center, and provide a meeting place for various groups in the community. We desperately need funding so that we can pay off the bank loan and start to make the necessary renovations to the building. No amount is too small! For further information please write, or send your donations to: L’Association des Especes d’Espaces Libres et Imaginaires (AEELI), 2033 St. Laurent, Montreal, Quebec H2A 2T3.

For many years we, as war tax resisters, have openly stated our refusal to willingly pay for the tragedy of war.
