On 13th Spetember 2008 between 10am and 5pm the St Werburghs Centre, on Horley Rd in St Werburghs Bristol will host Bristol’s first anarchist bookfair for 15 years.
According to the events organisers
‘An Anarchist Bookfair is a day of anarchist books, ideas, pamphlets, discussions, merchandise, networking, free info, help & solidarity, games, bike workshops, tools, history, planning, speakers, resistance, and an all day vegan cafe. All the resources you need to reclaim your future.
It is our intention that the Bookfair will be:
- – A perfect introduction to anarchist ideas & practice for those seeking an alternative to the chaos & greed of capital, the boredom of party politics, the abject failure of centrally controlled state communism, and the unsustainability of present energy consumption.
- – An excellent opportunity for anarchists old and new to recharge their batteries and reading lists, to catch up with old friends, to sharpen their ideas, and to re-energise their enthusiasm for the struggle for a free world.
- – And for those who are critical, you are welcome to come along to join the discussions, to air your reservations, and to cut through the myths of anarchism to the reality.’
The event should be a great opportunity for people to get in touch with some of the vibrant activism going on in Bristol and the South West, with a plethora of mouthwatering workshops and discussions throughout the day.
Bristol Indymedia will be one of the many organisations taking part in the day, running a stall, and chairing a discussion about media democarcy.
Entry is free… Come along if you can… It promises to be a great day.
