Fluid Prejudice

Radical Comic Anthology - launch 7pm this Friday 23 May

Jura is excited to host the launch of Fluid Prejudice, a new anthology of radical Australian comics and drawings. The editor, Sam Wallman, will be there, with contributors Aaron Manhattan, Safdar Ahmed and Katie Parrish. Sam has created great online comics including the story of a guard in a refugee detention centre and a piece on the minimum wage in Australia. Safdar is well known for his work with the Refugee Art Project, and other comics. A review of Fluid Prejudice in the Saturday Paper, described it as 'measured, intelligent and confidently awkward'. We think it's fantastic. Copies will be available at Jura from Friday for $20.

Mutiny is dead

Long live mutiny

After 71 issues over 8 years, Mutiny Zine has ended. The editors are pursuing other projects. You can read the last Mutiny online (along with previous issues), or pick up a copy at Jura or the zine fair. There are pieces on Australian neo-colonialism in the Pacific, sexual violence and the left, a radical framework for autistic politics, solidarity networks and more. To celebrate the life and death of the zine, there'll be a party - past editors, contributors and readers all welcome!
6pm, Saturday 7 June at Jura. More

Sam Mbah needs help

Fundraising for Nigerian anarchist

Sam Mbah is an anarchist author and activist from Nigeria. Jura has been in contact with Sam for some years; one collective member spent time with him in 2012, interviewing him and setting up his blog. Sam's classic book African Anarchism explores the anarchistic aspects of a number of traditional African societies, as well as the potential for anarchism in Africa today. Sam was active in the struggle against the Nigerian dictatorship, and helped to found the Awareness League - a large anarchist organisation at that time. Sam is now one of a small number of prominent anarchists in Nigeria - the third most populous English-speaking country in the world. He is of great significance to our global community.

Now Sam needs our help. His health has been deteriorating due to a heart condition. He needs an operation on his heart and is seeking to raise $12,000. Jura is helping to fundraise. Please make a donation now - any amount would be appreciated. You can donate in cash at Jura, or by paypal, or by direct transfer into our bank account below. Please include the reference 'Sam Mbah' and let us know you've made the donation. We will send the money to Sam in one transfer.
