It’s that time of year again, and the London Anarchist bookfair is upon us. We’ll be there with our new books, Excessive Force and Diary of a Miscreant, and other highlights from the online shop. It’s well worth coming along with a whole load of good things happening. A press release from the anarchist bookfair reads:
2009 London Anarchist Bookfair
Queen Mary College, Mile End, London E1 4NS
Saturday 24 October 2009. 10 am – 7 pm
Thousands of anarchists and revolutionaries will come to this year’s bookfair to meet, plan and plot.
There will be dozens of stalls and meetings setting out anti-authoritarian ideas – about the past the present and the future –as well as film and cabaret. The stalls show the breadth of the anarchist movement, with workers struggles, community groups, national networks, anarcho-feminist groups all represented. You’ll find small presses and zines as well as the established anarchist publishers. If you can’t find it here it’s probably not very anarchist.
Meeting highlights include author and broadcaster Paul Mason, John Holloway and William Dixon discussing capitalisms’ crisis, Ian Bone and Martin Wright rabble rousing, and speakers from South Africa, Israel, France and Greece bringing news of repression and resistance.
Amongst the films Stuart Christie will be introducing Living on your feet: The Struggles of Cipriano Mera, a new documentary about a Spanish anarchist fighter, and Aki Nawaz will present To Gaza With Love, about breaking the siege of Gaza from the sea.
This isn’t just for anarchists – it’s for anyone who thinks we can do better than the fools who try to rule us.
