Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group is pleased to promote the 2014 Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair:

Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair

We’ll be in attendance, promoting our class struggle position and our workplace orientation, something the Anarchist movement in Australia sorely needs.

The Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair is a free event held annually at The Abbotsford Convent (St Heliers Street, Abbotsford).

In 2014, it will take place from 10am-6pm on Saturday the 9th of August.

Over the past 4 years, the Bookfair has gathered hundreds of people from Melbourne and beyond to share ideas, attend workshops and strengthen networks.

The Bookfair consists of up to 40 stalls held by independent book-sellers and activist groups. Alongside the stalls, there will be 14 workshops (See here for program: http://www.amelbournebookfair.org/programme-2014/ ) and a program of skillshares running all day, on all kinds of anarchist and direct action topics.

In the past we have had info and discussions covering topics such as anarchism, indigenous sovereignty, land rights and colonialism, sexism and gender, feminism, justice, sexual assault, workplace struggles, community spaces, environmental action and much more. We hope this year will continue to build on the ideas and networking, and welcome a broader audience and participation.

So please get involved and be a part of the 4th Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair!

Support for parents and carers with children:

There will be a kids’ space and a programme of children’s activities throughout the day. We also have free childcare available for children aged 0-5 years. Pop into the Childcare space and see Lola, to check if there is room available or to book in for later in the day. Care will be available from 10-1:30 and from 2-6 (that is, it will be closed over the lunch break in the workshop program).
