Bristol Anarchist Bookfair Saturday September 16th 2017

It’s 2017 and the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair Collective has new collective members, a new venue, a new date and some new ideas.

As well as all the usual exciting features of the bookfair such as the amazing range of radical literature and the networking opportunities, this year there is going to be a particular emphasis on workshops and discussions. For this reason we have had to change venue. We needed somewhere with good workshop spaces and while our previous venue has been almost perfect on other ways it doesn’t have this.

Our new venue is smaller and so stalls will be limited. Priority will be given to activist groups that organise using anarchist principles and we would ask that groups campaigning on similar issues consider sharing a stall. The number of book stalls will also be reduced although there will still be a huge range of books. As well as more suitable spaces for workshops and discussions, this year we will be allowing extra time for some of the key discussions.

To whet your appetites we will be having a Zinefair on May 13th at Kebele in Easton, hopefully this is already in your diary! The bookfair collective is going to have our own zine distro so if you have a zine you would like included let us know. If you have it printed already that’s great, if not we may be able to print it. We are keen to hear you recommendations. Watch this space for other events in the run up to the bookfair…

For bookfair stall bookings please use our shiny new online booking form . The deadline for stall bookings is August 16th.

If you have an idea for a workshop let us know, we are particularly looking for interactive workshops that will either inspire discussions or share practical skills useful for strengthening and progressing our movements.

It will be at:
St Werburghs Community Centre
Horley Road St Werburghs
Bristol
BS2 9TJ

AFed picket Turkish Embassy: Solidarity with H. Civan and the victims of Turkish State’s violence.

Solidarity with Hüseyin Civan

The wave of repression unleashed by the Erdogan regime in Turkey has resulted in thousands losing their jobs and thousands imprisoned. Recently Hüseyin Civan, managing editor of Meydan, a paper that represented the views of the DAF (Devrimci Anarsist Faaliyet / Anarchist Revolutionary Action), received a prison sentence of one year and three months.

This was the result of the action of the chief public prosecutor who pursued Meydan over articles published in issue 30, December 2015. The charge against our comrade was “making propaganda for the methods of a terrorist organization constituting coercion, violence or threats through legitimizing or praising or encouraging the use of these methods”.

Meydan was closed down after Erdogan began a campaign of repression after the recent failed coup. The imprisonment of Civan is another heavy blow against the anarchist movement operating within Turkey.

Advocating a system based on mutual aid and equality, defending workers’ struggles, arguing for gender equality and the freedom of the individual , against nationalism and fascism are seen as terrorist crimes by the Erdogan regime.

Representing Meydan and Civan, lawyer Davut Erkan stated that the decision was illegal and would be appealed, if necessary, all the way to the Constitutional Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

The Anarchist Federation sends a message of solidarity to Hüseyin Civan, Meydan and the DAF.
