Dear Friends,

I have come to the unhappy determination that I cannot afford to keep Eco
Books open at our present rent. Eco Books will close at the end of
June. I will put the books in storage and spend the coming months looking
for less expensive space in which to relocate. I am considering relocating
in New York City or outside the city.

Between now and the end of June, I hope you will join us for one or more of
the many events we have scheduled. Our events are listed below and on our
website at www.ecobooks.com/events.htm The various groups that meet at Eco
Books will continue to meet in other locations. In a future email I will
ask you to let me know if you would like your email address to be given to
any of these groups so that you can be kept current with their future events.

Eco Books will be closed this coming weekend from Thursday, May 23 to
Monday, May 27.

JUNE 26-27, 2002

This coming June 26-27, the executive board of global capitalism is
retreating to the foothills of Alberta, Canada. Jean Chretien, George W.
Bush, Tony Blair and the other so-called leaders of the industrialized
world continue planning for war at home and abroad, surrounded by
pristine wilderness, putting greens, and thousands of police and

The self-serving "war on terrorism", orchestrated by the leaders of the
G8, continues to militarize and brutalize the world, while cynically
making appeals to civilization and freedom. From Afghanistan to
Colombia, from the Philippines to Somalia, Western powers continue to
exercise their self-proclaimed right to dominate and determine the
destiny of the global South at an ever more accelerated pace.

Harry Cleaver, autonomist, author, academic, and activist; will
be speaking on Long Island, NY on May 4th at a Long Island Free Space event. Author of 'Reading Capital Politically' (anti-thesis/ak press) and long time proponent of autonomist Marxism, it is rare that we have the opportunity to hear from this exciting individual in this area.

Also that nite the Freespace will be hosting its regular DIY Flea
Market w/ potluck & wares for sale/trade.

Kevin Skvorak, an NYC activist who is now in Palestine, is also booked to speak that night, speaking about stopping the Middle East Conflict with non-violent direct action!

Come to the lovely San Francisco Bay Area for MayDay! We're having summer weather (bring a sweatshirt), and we have a famous tradition of fabulousness, labor activism, and
of course an active anarchist scene.

Mayday Convergence: Autonomous Festivals of Resistance

Week of Resistance In Many Forms, Celebrating Mayday

May Day: Anti-capitalist Convergence & Autonomous Festivals of Resistance
is a week-long series of direct actions, demonstrations, marches and
celebrations to oppose Global Capitalism and all forms of oppression. A
variety of events will take place in the San Francisco Bay Area from April
26th to May 1st. The convergence continues the centuries-old tradition of
May Day as a time of celebration of the Earth and human creativity. May
Day has been an Anarchist and pro-worker holiday internationally since the
general strikes of 1886. For a more complete schedule of events,
