Hi,
May I post this:

There is a good film about the new Immigration Acts and how the border is moving into all our lives, whether we are migrants or not.

Everyday Borders

One pushback against the Everyday Border is the boycott of the September 2016 requirement to provide information about nationality to schools.

I have recently changed tendencies. I am now a communizer influenced by left communism and some aspects of anarchism. Some comrades and I have started a writing group called Communism Knowns No Monsters. We are writing some stuff now. I would like to request publishing privileges for that group.

no problem. Just register an account with that name and we will sort it. Would you be interested in a blog here? For that, you can send us an example of your writing when you have done some to libcom.org@gmail.com to review

Bump, because due to a spam onslaught new users now have to request permission to post forum topics as well

Hi

I signed up for an account after reading the article editing guide and Towards a Gay Communism because I wanted to reformat the latter so it reads better, but I can't find an edit button anywhere. Do I need to ask for posting privileges to do this?

Thanks

Yes you do. And this is the right thread to do it. A mod will have to do it, so just be patient until one sees your request. I'm sure Steven will read this soon enough.

hi, very sorry about the delay I've been out of the country. That would be fantastic if you could do that: you now have permissions

Hello, it'd be great if we could submit an advertisement for a new radical social room, Decentre, above Freedom Bookshop in Whitechapel, London. Cheers!

Hello,

I have scanned a hard to find book on Spanish Civil War with strong focus from an Anarchist Perspective in both PDF and JPEG format which I think may interest many on Libcom.
Includes lots of photos.

Yes it is. If you scroll down on the submit page, you should see "File Attachments"; click on it and you should find an upload box. You should be able to upload a PDF there.

The image stuff is there if you want to add an image to the library item you want to upload.

Hi, I'd like to add a pdf that I made of the pamphlet 'Bordiga versus Pannekoek
by Antagonism. The pdf version presently attached to the article is in a pamphlet format that is not really suited to reading on either a PC or e-reader. I lifted the text for the PDF from the site, red texts.

hi, that would be great - you already have posting/editing permissions so please go for it. Click the Edit tab, and an editor will approve the change when we get to it

If you run it through OCR (optical character recognition) software (Abby Finereader iirc) then it willl convert the images of text into text (with proof-reading required) which will get it down to size easily.
