A Brief Note: "Friend Requests"

Thanks to everyone who has been sending us emails, we appreciate the support. We love learning about other people's projects and communication between distros is really great. If we come across a project/group/distro that we find affinity with and feel is in alignment with the intentions of Lunaria Press then we will link them on our site. However, we will not link to another site just because we are asked to. We are interested in a quality of friends and comrades rather than a quantity. So, continue to let us know about your projects, but please don't request that we link to your site.

Originally published by Black Cat Press.

The Ukrainian anarchist Maria Nikiforova played a prominent role in the Russian Revolutions of 1917 and the subsequent Civil War as an organizer, military commander, and terrorist. A revolutionary from the age of 16, she was on trial for her life on four separate occasions under three different regimes and was sentenced to death twice. Her exploits became the stuff of folklore. But she was ‘blacklisted’ by official historians and her story was lost for generations.
