~ For anarchists, and those curious about anarchism ~
FREE Location TBA in Kjipuktuk, Unceded Mi’kmaq territory
We will not go back to “normal”. The pandemic has only intensified social control and surveillance, capitalism and colonialism, with those in power deepening their pockets through intensified industrial extraction, skyrocketing housing prices, and intolerable working conditions. While the defenders of this racist colonial system look out for their own interests, we know that we are the ones who must look out for and care for each other. The roots of ecological destruction, poverty, white supremacy, colonialism, police violence, patriarchy, etc lie within the construct of authority itself. Anarchism helps us to understand the roots of these systems of power, articulate our desires for self-determination, and dream of a world where all are free. It is crucial in these times that we find each other, create space to remember what liberation can feel like, share our grief and rage, and bring collective energy into our struggles.
The bookfair is for anarchists, those curious about anarchism, book lovers, and anyone simply questioning authority. It will feature publishers and book distributors, vendors, artists, and facilitators from all over North America/Turtle Island; the day/weekend will include workshops, discussions, kids’ activities, art exhibits, parties and more!
