An activist librarian and library activist, finding more and more of them everywhere, ready to make common cause.


MCR believes the worst thing in the world is to tolerate injustice as if it were simply "the way the world works".

He does not believe the old saw that "the poor will always be with us". Nor does he believe that people will get their just rewards in the "sweet bye-and-bye".

He does not believe that "The people united will never be defeated". But at least they'll have a fighting chance.

With Marx: "Change the world!"
With Rimbaud: "Changer la vie!"
