New anarchist space in Paris : La Discordia


Act for freedom now! received and translated:
Discord is profound disagreement, violent dissent that puts people in
opposition and sets them against each other. What we want to encourage
rather is for it to set them against this old world and its defenders,
as is already happening here and there in the many acts of rebellion and
insubordination. There is no question of us throwing water on the
glowing embers of these revolts, but rather of throwing, like the
goddess Discordia [Eris], the apple of discord into the middle of this
society where mercantile and repressive relations seem to have taken the
upper hand over mutual aid, solidarity and the search for a life that we
would like to live. Also against the wide resignation and search for
consensus at all costs – even at the cost of apathy.

Outside all dogmas and with an anarchist perspective, La Discordia is a
library that aims to nourish a revolutionary project in some of its
fundamental aspects: reading, debate, theory, writing, paper,
discussion. A place to meet to share information on current events of
the revolutionary and anti-authoritarian movement throughout the world,
to compare ideas, discover, dig; a place where discussion is not
necessarily synonymous with consensus and is not reserved for
specialists. It is also a physical place to get out of everything
virtual, with debates in person, face to face and in sharing. It is
books, newspapers, leaflets, pamphlets, posters and other documents,
archives of today and yesterday to contribute to the transmission of the
history of individual and collective struggles. Anything that can
further the development of ideas, rupture with the State, politics and
Capitalism. If Discordia caused the Trojan War with her provocative
action, we hope with ours to contribute in some way to the war against
all authority, adding fuel to its ideas.

La Discordia is an autonomous (and in deficit) library, which also
depends on your support and participation. Located in the northeast of
Paris, it is a question of making more visible and accessible a still
discreet but continuous anarchist presence in these neighbourhoods for
some years.

Feel free to consult the program and the catalogue, and especially to
pass to borrow books, work quietly on the archives, discover new texts
and pamphlets, go through the distro, leave publications, discuss,
propose something or just spend a few hours outside of widespread

Books, not cops!
