On Thursday February 2nd at 7pm (TOMORROW!!!) , come on out the the Flying Brick Library (506 S. Pine St) for a multimedia presentation and workshop on the Green Scare.

The Green Scare with the Richmond Anarchist Black Cross
This workshop will be a discussion of what the Green Scare is (think Red Scare) – the systematic repression of environmental, animal liberation, earth liberation activists by government and corporate agencies, how it affects activists today, and what can be done to fight it. There will be a lot of intro level material, but folks with more knowledge are encouraged to come share their thoughts and ideas. We are adding a multimedia aspect to this presentation to make it more interesting and engaging.

Recommended Reading List for further study:

Zines- The Green Scare Benefit Tour, Under Attack! The Green Scare and SHAC Canada, The SHAC Model: A Critical Assessment, Survivors Manual, The Green Scare  (These zines are available for reading at the Wingnut Radical Lending Library, Open Hours Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm)

We finished adding some final details to our bookshelves, and because we have gotten SO many books recently we need to reorganize our radical lending library. That means all books off the shelves, checking them to make sure they are stamped online at http://www.librarything.com/thewingnutrva, making sure they are appropriately categorized, and then figuring out how to cram them all back on the shelves.

Anyone with librarian tendencies who is interested in helping us with this awesome, nerdly process is welcome to come over this Thursday, June 9th from 5pm on. We will have dinner provided to soothe the bookish appetites.

3 new titles are now available at the Wingnut Radical Lending Library. You can come check out our collection during Open Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm.



Today we added 16 New Titles to the Wingnut Radical Lending Library!
