THE Prisoner Literature Project aims to supply Canadian prisoners with radical literature, preferbly from an anti-authoritarian stance. If you have any new or used, and feel like exposing prisoners to its worth, please send it along to us care of Alternative Bookshop, 2033 St Laurent, Montreal PQ H2X 2T3 Canada. This type of function already exists for American prisoners, whereas Canadian prisoners have little or no civil rights while incarcerated.

WOULD all groups and bookshops at home and abroad who have received orders from us and have not paid for their orders please do so. The reason for this request is due to the amount of letters which we have received asking for the next two pamphlets that we intend publishing—”Armed Struggle in Italy” and “Brigate Rosse”. We had hoped to have the aforementioned pamphlet ready for August, but due to the slow return in payments, we have been unable to achieve this. So, please if your account with us is outstanding, please settle it as soon as possible. Bratach Dubh, Port Glasgow, Scotland.
