The Libertarian Alliance

With the possible exception of the one dated August 9, 1986, the 5 documents immediately below and suffixed * LA are from the assorted papers delivered to me by Goodman on Thursday, November 14, 2013. They were in a secured bundle. I assume they were all collected on or relate to the conference on that date. (The two David Botsford papers are to be counted as one).

PORNOGRAPHY: ANYTHING GOES IN DENMARK, December 1975 * LA
Coda: Poets & Writers Newsletter, September/October 1985 * LA
AGAINST CENSORSHIP, by David Botsford, April 1986 * LA
The above paper appears to have gone through at least 3 printings. Here is a pristine copy of what is apparently a later version that was downloaded from the Web, December 3, 2013.
CALCULATED TO DEPRAVE & CORRUPT, by Fanny Cockerell * LA
The above is the best copy possible.
CENSORSHIP, FREE SPEECH AND PORNOGRAPHY, August 9, 1986 * LA

Rules For The Administration Of The Libertarian Alliance
On the instructions of Sean Gabb, the above was donated to the British Library.

David Webb and NCROPA
The above fragment is from a Libertarian Alliance publication circa July 1984. Neither I nor Sean Gabb can be more specific than that.

The publications below are listed in alphabetical order by the surname of the author. They were all published by the Libertarian Alliance and all were found in NCROPA files, but pristine copies have been downloaded from the LA website. Avedon Carol and Nettie Pollard are founder members of Feminists Against Censorship.
