56a library relaunch weekend

July 13th, 2009 · post by Edd · Make a comment

56a benefit and relaunch weekend flier56a, the anarchist social centre in south London, are relaunching their zine library. It comes after several months of work pulling it all together and making, what was already one of the most valuable zine resources in the UK, even better.

Melissa from Cherry Bomb comix, and one of the people who’s been working on relaunching the library, explained why she’s been working on the project, “As a free resource, the zine library at 56a is a hugely important and exciting place to visit. Featuring zines that date back to the 80s, covering topics ranging from queer, feminism and anarchy, to health, the politics of race, bike mechanics and punk music, the library provides an opportunity for people to access information outside of the status quo, and discover personal stories that reflect their own experiences, or open their eyes to new ones.”

To celebrate the relaunch 56a is having a weekend of events, with a gig, workshops, food and ‘general hanging out’.

The weekend is happening over the weekend of the 25th and 26th of July.
