Now in its eighth year, the New York City Anarchist Book Fair is one of the primer socio-political-cultural events of its kind in North America. New York City's anarchist community will host a weekend festival and gathering of community building and cooperation which includes:

A day-long Book Fair, with a variety of authors, speakers, panel discussions, skillshares, and workshops;
An interactive and participatory Art Festival with installations, music, performance, dance, and video art; and
Community Film Festival for local and global dissent;

All devoted to building a free society through mutual aid yet most importantly without the state and capitalism.

The New York City Anarchist Book Fair is always free and open to the public. It is for activists to network and connect with each other and for anyone who wishes to explore the vibrant and active world of anarchist organizing, action, and experiences of past and present. The Book Fair is also open for children, with child care and creative activities for children provided. Large and small book vendors will be present that displays the power of the DIY attitude, collective organizing from local to international independent publishers that will fill visitor's minds with self liberation and freedom through anarchist principals and values.

Authors, panel discussions, skillshares, and workshops will cover a variety of anarchist experiences from the past to the present that respond to socio-economic struggles, community building, mental health, and the continued corporatization of everyday life, struggles for life and livelihood within low-income communities, women and by people of color in the U.S. and around the world, which can provide new models of anti-authoritarian organizing through mutual aid and cooperation. Join us Saturday evening to hear keynote speaker Ashanti Alston, former Black Panther and revolutionary anarchist

textDirect action and the community infoshop Apr 10 by ProleCat 0 comments

Direct action refers to members of a community engaging in activities for their mutual benefit, without seeking permission or assistance from the rich and powerful.

In this article, we will briefly consider one example of direct action, a community infoshop.
