Transport/Parking – come by public transport or bike if you can. There is very little parking in the area, and it is expensive.
Like the best ideas, Anarchy is pretty simple when you get down to it – human beings are at their very best when they are living free of authority and deciding things among themselves rather than being bossed about. That’s what Anarchy means – without governments & hierarchies, for total freedom & equality. Anarchism provides the ideals, strategies & tactics to end capitalist barbarism and authoritarian states. It is about building community & solidarity, and celebrating & empowering the struggle to build a free world for all.
The London Anarchist Bookfair showcases British & International Anarchist groups, projects, campaigns, distros, publishers, artists & authors from across the Anarchist movements. Over 100 stalls and 60 meetings & film screenings make it the ideal introduction to anarchist theory & practice for newcomers, and a vital resource & networking space for hardcore Anarchist militants.
Anarchists from around the world including Greece, Kurdistan, Spain, Czech Republic, USA and the Caribbean will be talking about the struggles in their countries, and how we can work together to strengthen the global Anarchist resistance. British grassroots organisations leading the fightback against capitalism and austerity will talk about their successes and future plans – learn about and get involved with campaigns such as Boycott Workfare, Radical Housing Network, Earth
First, Campaign Against the Arms Trade, Disabled People Against Cuts, Feminist Fightback and Corporate Watch.
Attracting thousands to Anarchism every year, the London Anarchist Bookfair acts as a giant shop window onto the much misunderstood principles & aims of Anarchism, and offers something for everyone. With no leaders, lying politicians, cameras nor celebrities, it’s a relaxed space that encourages honesty, co-operation, , debate, resistance and mutual aid.
All are welcome and it’s free to enter! There’s a creche & older kids space!
