The Third Annual East Bay Anarchist Conversation & Book Event

A Call to participate in the third annual East Bay Anarchist Conversation & Book event

In the city of Oakland, on Ohlone land, in December of 2014 we will host the third annual East Bay Anarchist Bookfair: Conversations & Books where we will present the projects and people who have comprised the East Bay Anarchist community for decades. Our website is at

Dates & Location

The event will be held at the Humanist Hall ( 390 27th Street, Oakland, CA, 94612-3104 on December 7th from 10AM to 8PM. It will include conversations and books during the day and party in the evening.

How to request a conversation

Unlike a traditional book fair, and as we did last year, EBAB emphasizes conversations, both for people who are new to anarchist ideas and for more experienced radicals and activists. Our introductory conversations will be respectful, thematic, and facilitated by experienced people. No themes have been proposed yet, as it’s early days. But last year we talked about Illegalism, asynchronous music, William Blake and Thomas Pynchon, and nihilism. If you have a conversation idea or are an experienced facilitator drop us a line at

How to request a table

The main room of the hall will house booksellers, distributors, independent presses, and activist groups from all over North America but with an emphasis on the Bay Area and California. If you’d like to table this year, provide a short description of your group and the materials you intend to distribute. The fee for tabling at the event is 10% of your sales (minimum of $40 which is due with table confirmation). The deadline to request a table is October 15, 2014. Drop a line at

This looks pretty cool, is Bob Avakian going to speak this time?

Ice. Pick.


"...on Ohlone land..."

remember, this is the morality geek laced SF Bay Area, and the usual leftist guilt trip pieties must be observed. It was probably dinosaur land before that -- where is the righteous acknowledgement of that?

Is this the best nonsense @news commenters can come up with? It's not like the ancestors of those who are throwing the bookfair committed a genocide against the dinosaurs or anything.

are still committing* a genocide

call out fail!

I'm sure some remote descendants of Spanish explorers, missionaries, and conquerors will attend the bookfair. Who's gonna Qilombolol the Mexicans?

Srs, I hope fair organizers will be paying rent to the "real owners" of the land instead of merely exploiting their name to show how enlightened they are.

"real owners"

yeah, that's how american indians viewed their relationship with land.

Explain the phrase "Ohlone land" then, or perhaps how anarchists reflect native cultural attitudes

according to wikipedia there is actually no precedent for the label 'ohlone' in reference to any group of people.
it appears they didn't have mass society. they functioned like, in a plenum, where what is just is.
did they have illusions of civil rights and legal property? or is this label invented by political

I can't wait. I may request a panel on why Libre software isn't supposed to be used by snitches.
