the bookfair

Halifax Anarchist Bookfair – Sept. 7th, 2019!
5450 Russell St, Halifax (Kjipuktuk), unceded Mi’kmaq territory.
~For anarchists, and those curious about anarchism~
FREE – Welcome to all.

We are living in a world where ecological collapse is imminent, and fascist forces militarize borders, destroy land and livelihoods; a world where basic freedoms are a further and further reality for most people, a world where prisons still incarcerate our loved ones. In the spirit of rebellion, we are calling for a gathering, the largest anarchist event in the Atlantic region, to learn collectively how to challenge and disrupt these forces. In this time, it is crucial for anarchist gatherings to take place, to share stories, strategies and plans for dismantling capitalism and all forces of coercive control, and to experience and create together a culture based on mutual aid, solidarity and freedom for all.
In this spirit of rebellion, we invite you to come to the 2nd Annual Halifax Anarchist Bookfair.
Come out whether you’re a seasoned anarchist, excited to learn about anarchism, a curious skeptic, a lover of books, or if you are simply becoming disillusioned with capitalism and the government. Featuring publishers and book distributors, vendors, artists, and facilitators from all over North America/Turtle Island; the day will be filled with presentations, workshops, films, discussions, kids’ activities, art exhibits, parties and more! Let’s connect our struggles, build our capacities, and support anti-authoritarian revolutionary culture and community.
Last year’s bookfair was an incredible success. Over 400 rebels attended throughout the day to peruse the huge selection of literature, and participate in workshops that inspired new ideas and actions. Parties and events brought us together; new friendships were formed and old friendships rekindled. We send out a huge thanks to everyone who came and helped make the weekend an overwhelming success.
We are now inviting you to help make this year’s bookfair weekend as incredible as last year.
Please get in touch with your workshop proposals, table requests inquiries, accessibility needs, collaboration ideas and wildest dreams at:

Proposals for tables and workshops are due by July 15th, 2019
    
For a more Anarchic Halifax, and a freer, more joyful, and just world!
    
P.S. We know Halifax is far from most other major cities, get in touch if you want to participate but distance feels like a barrier.  We’ll try to work out creative solutions to this issue.
