http://www.rebelreads.ie/about/ “The Issue

Ever since the closure of Solidarity Books in 2015, Cork has been without an autonomous space where people can meet, organise and hold events.

As the second biggest city in the Republic, Cork has a real need for a community hub where independent and progressive groups can meet, work together, share resources, organise fun events, have days of action or simply to socialise.

Our aim is to fill the current gap and set up a multifunctional and self-sustainable space, run by and for the people as an inclusive, progressive, non-hierarchical organisation.

We plan to use the space to socialise, learn, organise and celebrate.”
