Brisbane: Black & Green Infoshop has moved

1) Black And Green is new and has moved!

New location: 80 Ryan St, West End, Brisbane.
Same hours: Friday - Sunday, 11am -7pm.

For those who are hearing about us for the first time, B&G came together out of the Beating Hearts Press and Bastard Collective in May 2007 to have not only a cheap, non-profit anarchist and autonomous bookshop but an independent radical space in Brisbane to foster a broader radical autonomous community.

After a month at our old place on Hardgrave Rd we got evicted when the building was sold out from under us, so we're now at:

80 Ryan Street,
West End, Brisbane.
(About five metres from Orleigh Park / West End ferry terminal / 199 bus stop).

2) Black & Green has a bunch of new stock! (as of July)

Old, new and new-old (as they say on eBay)!

Just some of the titles at B&G right now are:
