From The Brilliant
In this episode, we try to recover from our losses: Bellamy happened to be generally dispirited about life at the time of recording (and it shows!), while Aragorn! broods over having lost two episodes of The Brilliant through some unknown and unknowable techno-incompetence. Perhaps fittingly, we spend some of the episode talking about an event and a project which excite us and the last third of the episode responding to our most consistent and harsh criticism.
As Anarchist Radio Berlin we had the opportunity of making an interview with two of the organizers of this year's Anarchist bookfair in Tallinn. We talked with them about the participants, their experiences with involving the public, but also the wider social context of Estonia.

As the 33rd annual book fair in Tijuana was coming to an end, a completely different book fair was starting up. The first fair of independent publications hosted by Raices Infoshop, Food Not Bombs, Publicaciones #0, and other collectives took place in the plaza by the arch (El Reloj) in downtown Tijuana on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th. With no sponsorship of any kind, the fair was as DIY as it could possibly be.

The skies of Santa Ana were frigid and gray last Saturday, but the only storm in sight was brewing under the roof of El Centro Cultural de Mexico. Here, dozens of vendors, volunteers and community activists gathered for Orange County’s First Anarchist Bookfair.
Mr. Bib surprised himself, with help from friends and fellow bibliophiles, at recent Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, getting pretty inspired, grateful, just plain happy during Gary Snyder's chat with David L. Ulin, book reviewer and, as it happens, contributor to current Santa Monica Review. Among many topics, the poet whose youth charged up so many, whose writing and politics influenced the policy decisions of a state and its then-governor (one Jerry Brown) and the California Arts Commission and so many college lit class syllabi, Synder mentioned, joyfully, anarchism, of all things.

This year, Insurgent Projections has the pleasure of organizing the very first Anarchist Film Festival in town May 23 and 24, during the Montréal Anarchist Bookfair. This is why we invite everyone to help us make festival succeed by participating. Submit your films of any length! We want pieces that are pertinent, original, independent, and linked either to struggles against oppression in any of its forms, or to the kinds of lives that rebel against it. These films need to be in line with the principles that we ourselves share with the Anarchist Bookfair
