Anarres
Anarres can be hard to categorise as we don't have public premises, but concentrate on stalls and mailorder, promoted through our website and a yearly printed mailorder catalog. So, we think of ourselves as an infoshop, but our structure is quite different from all the groups which have shopfronts. Not having huge overheads means we can concentrate more resources on what we stock and providing a service to those people who can't often get to a physical infoshop.

Revolution Now Collective

We do a press that had put out phamphlets on sex work theory, feminism, squatting, security culture, unemployed workers unions, (we've even put out an anarchist coloring book for kids), a handbook for protests (big ones, FTAA, G8, IMFWB, ETC.) and we're working on a first aid manual and a herbal how to (grow, harvest, prepare medicine, save seeds, etc.). For now we distro phamplets, but we hope to move into seeds in the fall (or maybe next spring/fall). We distro most of the old ICC stuff, lots of black and green press stuff, a wide variety of prison/ABC stuff, tonnes of class war type stuff, a huge assortment of womens stuff, a few devoted to antipatriarchy for him, a solid cointellpro/security section, and a bunch of stuff about cuba.

The collective also works with another collective, the New Breed Collective, to put on monthly benefit gigs for the local interval and tamaras houses (a shelter for women experiencing domestic violence, and a shelter for *primarily* adult survivors of child sexual abuse, both providing childcare and free counciling). Our shows are very political, obviously.

We have also set up workshops, speeches, marches, etc. in the past and hope to in the future.

Eclectic City II
Tyneside Squatters are at it again! This time in a brilliant social club in Newcastle city centre which is due to be turned into a lap-dancing bar. Women have opened up the squat today, at the same time as a hearing a magistrates in Newcastle regarding a licence for the proposed sexist bar. The results of the hearing aren't known yet, but the club will inevitably be delayed by the squatting.
So, WE have a wonderful social centre for the immediate future. So please come along to express your support for the squat and protest at the plans for another way of comodifying women's bodies. It's a really great building, so there is various events planned, but come along anyway during the day - something will be going on.
