Bookfairs in early 2015

The first anarchist bookfair in 2015 was the Cardiff Bookfair on 21 February, and a very worthwhile effort it was – well done to the South Wales Anarchists!

Coming up over the next couple of months are a number of other Bookfairs. These act as a sort of shop window to the world of anarchism, as well as a place for anarchists & radicals to gather, debate, network, and plot ahead…
25 April – Dublin anarchist bookfair
25 April – Bristol anarchist bookfair
9 May – ARB Radical London Bookfair
16 May – Sheffield anarchist bookfair
Our great big older sister, the London anarchist bookfair, will be around the 18 or 25 October (if they can sort a venue!). There will of course be more around Britain and the World – see here for updates. Enjoy & Revolt!

With the next UK General Election due around May 7th 2015, an Anarchist Bookfair around that time could be part of an intervention into the ongoing failure of UK party politics & parliamentary rule, and the dire need for some serious alternatives!

London 2014There’s a good chance you may be in need of some more anarchist literature & discussions to inspire you with ideas? Lets face it the world hasn’t exactly improved since April! Issues such as resource wars, climate change, wealth inequality, privatisation, political/financial corruption, corporate & state control, nationalism, racism, religion, sexual abuse, to name just a few, continue to impact negatively on all our lives, and we can be certain the political parties wont solve these problems for us. So here are a few upcoming events and resources offering you the anarchist alternative…. Continue reading Books, more Bookfairs, and Ideas
