First online radical bookshop in Aotearoa

From Aotearoa Indymedia

Katipo Collective is pleased to announce the formation of our online bookshop - Katipo Books.

We are a Workers Co-operative based in Otautahi/Christchurch, who are in the process of setting up a Bookshop and Publishing Co-op. We have an interesting and diverse range of books available for purchase from our site. The majority of our stock is sourced from small independent publishers - not corporate giants. We are also looking to stock more locally made or produced independent material, so if you have anything you would like us to stock you can either reply to this email or use our online contact form: katipo.net.nz/contact_us.php

Katipo Books are pleased to sell their books at much cheaper prices than other bookshops that sell similar material. The reason for this is so that the information is accessible to more people and because we are a not-for-profit group so there are no huge profit margins to uphold. The use of the internet as our way of selling our material also cuts down on price as we have no huge overheads to cover.

Hmmm, the indymedia article's getting some interesting comments - not a complete slag-off fest, unusual but then I suppose it's not an a/r article

Hi all,

I see they've finally received copies of Valerie Morse's book: "Against Freedom: The War on Terrorism in Everyday New Zealand Life" from Rebel Press in Wellington. Looks like a good read, from the description:

In 2001, the United States launched the 'war on terrorism' in purported response to the September 11th attacks. With hasty process, the New Zealand government quickly signed up. But what is this war really about? The agenda of the 'war on terrorism' is very different to the propaganda we are being sold by politicians and the mass media. It is an agenda of domination and control over our lives and the extension of state and corporate power.

Against Freedom, written by Valerie Morse, details the agenda against freedom, from the legislative changes since 9/11 to the suppression of dissent and the media manipulation of public understanding, in order to provide an alternative view of what is happening and what can be done to stop the war.

Valerie Morse is a prominent activist from Wellington.
