The Federation for Anarchist Organizing (FAO) invites everyone to come to Ljubljana this May and join us at the Balkan Anarchist Bookfair (BAB). It has been ten years since the BAB started its voyage across the Balkans with the aim of connecting the local and regional, as well as international anarchist community and to provide space for exchanges of anarchist ideas, practices, literature, materials, cultural events, workshops and public discussions.

Practices of resistance, solidarity and the construction of communities against and beyond capitalism have always existed through history and have constituted an integral part of anarchist communities. Today the need for such practices has again spread far beyond our small communities and into the wider society.

10 years of the Balkan Anarchist Bookfair


The Federation for Anarchist Organizing (FAO) invites everyone to come to Ljubljana this May and join us at the Balkan Anarchist Bookfair (BAB). It has been ten years since the BAB started its voyage across the Balkans with the aim of connecting the local and regional, as well as international anarchist community and of providing space for exchange of anarchist ideas, practices, literature, materials, cultural events, workshops and public discussions.

By now the fact that we are living in the midst of a general social crisis has become undeniable. Finding ourselves in the middle of the whirlwind of capitalist destruction, we often feel weak and frustrated. Capitalism is destroying our lives daily and in so many different and very real ways. It is taking our future away from us. Often we find out that some of the old mechanisms of struggle, that were once the source of our power, are no longer effective enough. Yet it is all too clear that for us there can be no other option but to struggle and build against and beyond the existing. We certainly don’t lack useful analyses, critiques, seminars and conferences. It is time to take action.

Practices of resistance, solidarity and the construction of communities against and beyond capitalism have always existed through history and have constituted an integral part of anarchist communities. Today the need for such practices has again spread far beyond our small communities and into the wider society. The desert that capitalist devastation leaves behind, is a space that needs to be filled with imagination and everyday practices that stem directly from us and our desires. For everyone.

The BAB is one of such spaces, where we can exchange experiences and strategies. Where, in the context of these new social conditions, we can open up questions and seek answers. Among the questions we want to discuss are: Are we indeed fighting on the new terrain and what it might be? What could new strategies of struggle be? What is the role of anarchists in contemporary social struggles? What have we learned from our past experiences?

We call on everybody to support the event with participation and materials. The entire event will be held entirely free of charge, organized under the principles of solidarity, mutual aid and the building of common power.

We are also accepting suggestions for the event’s programme at bab2013 [at] riseup.net

The 10 year Balkan Anarchist Bookfair took place on May 24th-26th 2013 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Here are three statements created collectively during the bookfair, plus a great internationalist video:

1) We are their crisis – for a transnational struggle against capitalism and repression! (from general assembly of the bookfair on Saturday 25th May - includes video of an action in the city in the evening).

2) Joint Statement of the Balkan Meeting on Nationalism (from a discussion meeting on Saturday 25th May)

3) Building solidarity and resistance against capitalist devastation… (from the General assembly of the participants of the Balkan Anarchist Bookfair 2013 on 26th May).
