Barricade Distribution - Arm yourself with ideas!

Barricade Distribution is a new initiative by anarchists in Derry, in an effort to spread and share anarchist ideas to a wider audience locally. 
Discussions over the last few months have centred around creating a grassroots independent social space in Derry as it is felt it is badly needed. A place to organise and to socialise from as well as to educate and create ourselves collectively. 
This is of course a long term goal and obviously requires greater participation with like minded people. It is our view that by creating an outreach project such as Barricade Distribution in which activists intend to be present on the streets holding regular information stalls with a view of having our own social space, centre, local in the year ahead. 
Our first outing will be at this year's Derry Radical Bookfair on Sat. 28th January 2017 at Pilots Row community centre. 
If you would like to get involved, take part in any of our activities then we would urge you to make the next step and get in touch.
