The Hamilton Anarchist Bookfair is taking place March 3-4 and aims to be a space for convergence and discussion among anarchists and anti-authoritarians from across Southern Ontario. Our hope with this weekend is to contribute to rebuilding a sense of regional cohesion among various anarchist tendencies, to meet each other, share information about our contexts and projects, and find ways to work together to push back the smothering blanket of Canadian progressive democracy to lay bare the antagonisms that contained in capitalism and the state here and everywhere.

We just published the final list of workshop descriptions and tablers and thought we'd take a minute to summarize a bit of what to expect at the bookfair. We got a lot of workshop submissions, and our hope in choosing the ones we did was to highlight the various approaches to the struggle against systems of domination in the region, in order to both emphasize what we have in common and to create productive spaces for engaging with differences.

From Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair

The 2017 Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair is going to be postponed from April 22 to September 16, 2017.

Last fall we booked the two 2016 venues for this year’s event. A few weeks ago one of the venues cancelled our agreement, leaving us with no place to hold workshops/speakers. Since then, we have been unable to find a venue that has enough room for vendors as well as 2-3 workshop spaces that is also accessible (not requiring stairs), and available on the originally scheduled date of April 22.

From Seattle Times

The typical media stereotype of a Seattle anarchist is a young person wearing black, smashing windows at a May Day march and screaming at nearby journalists and police officers.

But the Anarchist Book Fair at Washington Hall last Saturday felt more like being among hundreds of Quakers, most of whom just happened to be wearing black.
