Word from The Sparrows' Nest

The Sparrows’ Nest was established by the Anarchist Federation’s Nottingham group with the involvement of other class struggle anarchists. It is a ‘Centre for Anarchist Culture and Education’, in a house, in St. Ann’s [Nottingham]. ‘The Library and Archive is our major project. We set it up to inform people about the ideology and history of Anarchism in its many forms, and about working class struggles in our region.’

In a recent letter they write:

Things are going well with the library here and we have recently received donations from the Syndicalist Workers Federation and other anarcho-syndicalist material, listed on our website partially. Cataloguing is progressing well and we are into serious preservation for most of it, with advice from Nottinghamshire Archives, so we have 50-odd acid/lignin-free boxes all full now. Expensive, as Barry says in his article!’
