Two new radical spaces in Cork

category cork | anti-capitalism | news report author Friday July 22, 2005 17:10author by Jennifer - WSM Report this post to the editors

CAZ and Barracka Books open up

Cork has two new radical spaces in one - the Cork Autonomous Zone has found a new home that is also the home of Barracka Books, a workers' co-op that includes a radical book section

Found: CAZ and Barracka Books share premises

Finding a space for the Cork Autonomous Zone (CAZ) required an epic search. It took no less than 18 months, involved a few heart breaking setbacks, and was finally resolved by the idea of sharing a space with an upstart, Barracka Books.

The CAZ started running early in 2002. It hosted campaigning groups, facilitated art, music etc. It was formerly located in a small lane off Camden Quay before deciding to move. Noisy neighbours made the space unsuitable to continue but also the building would be knocked, making way for apartments.

The Cork Grassroots Network took on the CAZ search. Since settling into the current space, an independent committee has formed to keep the CAZ running, delegates from each group that use the CAZ are asked to participate. Most nights are booked and some Sundays with various campaigning meetings, life drawing, pagan gatherings, and workshops.

Barracka Books is a workers'co-op.

Currently four people are working together, no bosses, decisions made together and profits are shared according to time spent working. The stock is varied, anything from cookery to children's books, new and second hand. There is a strong Irish interest section and notable radical books section. It also facilitates flyers, leaflets, zines and there's a noticeboard in the corridor.

The location is 61 Barrack St, on the ground floor. The shop operates from 10am to 6.30pm,Monday to Saturday. On those days, CAZ usage begins from 7pm onwards. On Sunday it can be booked for a full day.

The two entities are separate and must liaise with one another on common decisions. Work still needs to happen on the space, making it more disability accessible and to facilitate two meetings at once, etc. New groups are welcome but should get in contact with the CAZ committee to book. See our Contacts Section for details on how to get in touch.
