Callout for Stalls and Workshops at the 2016 Bristol Anarchist Bookfair

BABF2016_1medBuilding an anarchist future

Call-out for workshops and stalls for the 2016 Bristol Anarchist Bookfair, which will be on Saturday 30th April 2016, from 11am – 6pm, at Trinity Centre, Trinity Rd, Bristol BS2 0NW.

If capitalism collapsed tomorrow would we be ready?
It’s hard to plan for an uncertain future, as we have no idea how things will play out. Nor is it realistic to think there will ever be a point where we will have reached our destination or ideal utopia.

However, we can work on building our resilience & solidarity & co-operation, experimenting with different ways of organising, exchanging skills & resources, growing food & sustainability, dealing with conflict. and so on.

The aim of this year’s Bookfair is to focus on the futureas capital’s global crisis deepens and conflicts escalate, with disastrous consequences for humanity & the planet, the need for lasting social revolution has never been greaterthe future is bright IF the future is anarchism! Here’s the details & forms for Stall bookings & Workshop proposals….

Full steam ahead through the electoral swamp

stick_GovtafraidFBJust 5 weeks to go now until the Bristol anarchist bookfair at The Trinity Centre in Bristol, and it’s all shaping up well. Even the political parties & politicians are doing their bit for us – by acting like the complete bunch of liars, cheats & weirdos that they are.

The election campaign is shaping up to be one of the most petty name-calling & posturing campaigns ever, with barely a policy debate in sight, and with yet more cuts being promised by just about all the parties. We make no apology for having nothing but hatred & contempt for the political parties and their ruling class masters – their time will come, the sooner the better!

Whilst they waste our time and yours, we have a few deadlines coming up:
– we still have a few Stall tables left, so if you want to book one in time to get listed in our printed programme you need to do it this week. Any Stall spaces booked after that willl only be listed online. For forms & info see the Stalls page.

– noon on Wednesday 25 March is the final deadline to submit a Workshop proposal. The Bookfair collective meets that evening to decide which 12 proposals go ahead at the Bookfair. For forms & info see the Workshops page.

– all our publicity has been printed and is being passed around. We could do with help sharing it online – you can copy images of posters etc from our Publicity page and share them online. You can also share our social media links with friends, networks & contacts:
On Crackbook (FB page) here – Bristolanarchistbookfair
On Crackbook (FB event) here – 7th Bristol Bookfair
Radical History ZoneFB event and BRHG website
On Twitter – @bristolbookfair using this as our main hashtag #BABF2015 and also #AngrynotApathetic.

The printed programme for the Bookfair should be printed by about 10 April, and it’ll appear online by then too, so keep checking back. Other info will be made available as and when its confirmed, such as the After-Party! We’ll see you all on the 25 April, it’ll be great!
