    A good friend of mine has been to an anarchist book fair around there. I'll check the place out next time I'm in Montreal. I visited Montreal when I was in high school, but I only got around to visiting the Maison Norman Bethune.

    No. Going to an SPC meeting has been on my to-do list, but other things have had to take priority (and I'm not aware of more than one happening in the past year, last time I checked their web site which said a meeting had been cancelled).

    No, I'm not British and even if I were I wouldn't be in the CPGB-ML considering that they consider Hoxha to have been "ultra-left" and "sectarian," they uphold modern-day China as socialist, and other silliness.
  8. I don't know how to invite people to a group, but you could join the "De Leon Literati" I created since you seem to have an interest in De Leon's ideas.
