When Ahkok attended London’s anarchist book fair last year, he was stunned by the scale of it all: some 60 booths and 50 forums, from heated discussions—one was cut short by a fight—to emotional healing workshops for social activists. There was even a section for kids, because “Why can’t there be more play facilities for children at protest sites?”

Ahkok and his friends soon decided that Hong Kong, too, needs an anarchist book fair.

São Paulo Calling: Boycott the LA Anarchist Book Fair

I hate having to denounce events and collectives that at least, nominally, are associated with anarchism. In the instance of the Los Angeles Anarchist Book Fair (LAABF) and the collective that is implementing it, I have no choice. The LAABF has encouraged hatred among comrades, they have provided a platform for state socialists and marxist pseudo-economic analysis, and they have banned one of the most important North American anarchist publishing groups from tabling. Payback time.

LA Anarchist Bookfair Rejects Anarchist Publishing Project

We Los Angeles Anarchist Book Fair (LAABF) Collective members have decided not to accept your application to table and share our space at this year’s Book Fair. We have refunded your Paypal transfer of $150.00 for Little Black Cart (LBC).

Why, you may ask? First, we know that a physical fight broke out at the recent Seattle ABF over the publication of Atassa, and we wish to avoid a repetition of any such occurrence at our ABF. More importantly, however, giving a platform to ITS is completely unacceptable in our view, given its wanton violence against women, ordinary people, and humanity in general.

Contrary to some rumors, the 2017 Houston Anarchist Bookfair will go on as planned!! Our only serious setback from the storm is that we are behind on promotion, and a lot of people in the city have a lot on their plates this week, us included. So we want your help getting the word out for the next three weeks!

Anarchism and the struggle against the borders

Text of one of the introductory talks at the London Anarchist Bookfair meeting on “Anarchism and the Struggle against the Borders” (29 October). The other introduction focused on connections between the Syrian revolution and diaspora and rebellions against the European border system.

The invitation to this meeting asked three questions. I am going to try to touch on all three questions, and to relate them specifically to a few things that happened in London in the last year or two.
