Gondolkodó Antikvárium: Solidarity Call for Aid

We reproduce here an appeal from Gondolkodó Antikvárium, an internationalist bookshop and archive in Budapest, which is being evicted from its current premises.

For comrades, sympathisers, capitalist haters, revolutionaries, proletarians, working class people and those who hate capitalism in general - not from the right!

Gondolkodó Autonomous Bookshop has been operating for 30 years now in Budapest, Hungary. We distribute and archive Communist, Anarcho-communist, Marxist, Anarcho-syndicalist, Leftist(1), etc. publications, as well as other things: literature in fiction, social studies, history, fine arts, philosophy, etc.). It is a meeting point for comrades, sympathizers, activists, friends. We organize debate events, and produce our own publications regularly. We are the only continously operating radical distribution place in this region.

And now we are in the look for a new place (our dear landlord will kick us out in July). We’re looking for a place above 15 sqm (rentfree, would pay overhead costs) ideally with functioning bathroom. For this purpose, we’re asking for your help!

We would also need regular financial support. Please circulate our appeal and support us according to your possibilities.

Gondolkodó will continue to distribute at events, online, at our own events, at a local community centre Gólya, and, if we can find one, at our new place.

Hungary is a very conservative country, it is nationalist with strong fascist tendencies – this, combined with the world-wide crisis of capitalism force us to ask your regular support to maintain the functioning of Gondolkodó.

Comrade, sympathizer, activist, friend: please share our call for Aid, and support us, if you can, according to your possibilities in the name of the international solidarity of the Proletariat!

(1) While the choice of words here may be confusing, as is clear from their political output, the collective operating the bookshop does reject what we call "leftism", i.e. social democracy, Trotskyism and Stalinism.
