The Anarchist Melbourne Bookfair will be a free event held at Abbotsford Convent (St Heliers Street, Abbotsford) from 10am-6pm on Saturday 4th of August. The bookfair consists of up to 40 stalls of independent book-sellers and activist groups. Alongside the stalls there will be about 21 one-hour workshops running all day on all kinds of anarchist and direct action topics. There is also a small kids' space with volunteers to help carers, or for carers to self-organise child minding, or if the kids just want to play indoors. To volunteer in the kids' space please contact us.

How to get there:

All the information on how to get there by bus, bike, trains or whatever is on the Abbotsford Convent website. Try not to come by car as there is often a Farmers' Market at the Collingwood Children's Farm and parking can be scarce.

About the organisers:

The people on the A Melbourne Events organising collective of the Anarchist Melbourne Bookfair are from a variety of anarchist and activist groups which include: Anarchist Feminists, Barricade Bookshop, Eureka Campaign, Guerrilla Gardeners, Industrial Workers of the World, Kate Sharpley Library, Loophole Community Centre, M.A.C., Melbourne Indymedia, Ned Ludd Appreciation Society, The Sharehood, Squatters and Unwaged Workers Airwaves (SUWA), 3CR, Tunnerminawait & Maulboyhneer Commemoration Group, Upsiders, Wednesday Action Group, and Workers Solidarity Network. We are Margaret, Peter, Rebecca, Levin, Tristan, Dimitri, Molasses, Adam, Franca, Shane and Peter. We also organise an annual Camp Anarchy in March every year.

Ethos:
The Anarchist Melbourne Bookfair is for a society based on mutual aid and voluntary co-operation – against all forms of government and economic oppression – and believe everyone should share in the general prosperity. We struggle to break down racial, religious, national and sex barriers, and to fight for a just world without borders.
