At Jura Books, open since 1977, we are working to create a radically different world: one based on freedom, equality and justice for everyone, as well as environmental sustainability for all life on the planet. We believe this can only be achieved by an organised and politically conscious social movement, based on participatory democracy and workers control. Our collective aims to help to build this movement. We seek to bring the ideas of anarchism to ever-widening circles of people. We will also try to prefigure and nurture alternative social structures through the structures and activities of our collective. This means creating a physical and social space that is liberating, safe, imbued with anarchist politics, and a joy to be in.
Our bookshop has thousands of books that you won’t find anywhere else – anarchist, enviro, feminist, anti-war and more. Also t-shirts, posters and DVDs. We’re not-for-profit and 100% volunteer-run.
Jura hosts gigs, films, spoken word nights and political talks. Many of these are solidarity fundraisers. You're welcome to come along or get in touch about organising your own event.
