New Star Books Firebombing Benefit

In the early hours of March 7th, the Commercial Drive office of New Star Books was struck by a firebomb attack. New Star has long been one of Vancouver's most prolific publishing houses, having put out countless pieces of radical literature over the decades, including local Wobbly Mark Leier's Where the Fraser River Flows: The Industrial Workers of the World in British Columbia. To help the company get back on track, a benefit is being held from 3-5 PM this Saturday, March 31st, at the Western Front (303 East 8th Ave., Vancouver). Admission will be by donation.
