CIRA-Nippon was a Japanese group compiling an archive of documents related to anarchism based on the International Centre for Research on Anarchism (Centre International de Recherches sur l’Anarchisme – CIRA) in Switzerland. Their work is now continued in Japan by CIRA-Japana.
These articles were taken from the Negations website archive of Libero International. Below is the introduction from that site:
This site contains articles from Libero International, a journal published by CIRA-Nippon from 1974 to 1980. Although CIRA-Nippon and its journal no longer exist, I have posted these articles to help English speaking radicals learn about the history of Asian anarchism and to preserve the memory of CIRA-Nippon, one of the more remarkable projects in recent anarchist history.
I received the copies of Libero International from Phillip Billingsley, who was active in CIRA-Nippon. I have posted these articles with his permission. I have not attempted to copy the aesthetic of the original Libero International in the design of this site.

Note: in cases where a replica of characters used in Libero International would have a required a special download (for myself and site visitors), I have tried to create a close approximation.
