This is a call-out to independent booksellers, zinesters, activist groups and individuals who would like to run a stall or a workshop at this year's Bookfair. Over the past 4 years, the Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair has gathered hundreds of people from Melbourne and beyond to share ideas, attend workshops and strengthen networks. In the past we have had info and discussions covering topics such as Anarchism, Aboriginal and 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!

MAY DAY 2016 May 01 0 comments
The labour movement in Melbourne, though far declined from its former strength, has neither totally given up the ghost nor been allowed quarter by its enemies. Unions campaign for health and safety, against insecure work and against the use of temporary work visas to undermine labour standards. The campaigns, though, are undermined by the conservatism and timidity of the union officials, their support for the Labor Party and their nationalist focus on “Aussie jobs”, which interferes with building the necessary solidarity between local workers and super-exploited migrant workers. Meanwhile, the capitalists are proceeding with legislation to destroy the construction workers' union (CFMEU) and bring the entire union movement under close State supervision.

As many of you know, Jack 'The Anarchist' Grancharoff died on the 15th of May, at his home in Quaama, South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, aged 91. He died 'with his boots on' - he seemed to have risen from a chair, with an open book and a glass of something interesting on the table, collapsed onto the floor and was found a day or two later.
