June 14th marks the day that the Common Cause Hamilton local will be hosting our first Anarchist Book Fair. In a city with a vibrant history of working class struggle such as Hamilton, the Book Fair presents a unique opportunity for people coming together to network, learn and build community.
The Hamilton Anarchist Book Fair is a one day event being held at Westdale Secondary School at 700 Main St. West, just outside downtown. The day will kick off at 10am and go until 4pm. Radical bookstores, publishers and organizations will fill the cafeteria space of the school while the Hamilton Food Not Bombs chapter will be providing free vegetarian meals.
Throughout the day there are workshops and speaker panels planned featuring a number of experienced organizers and activists involved in a wide range of struggles. Tentative panels/workshops include: radical feminist organizing (with a member of the Ireland-based Revolutionary Anarcha-feminist Group, RAG), new forms of labour struggle (with the Industrial Workers of the World) and Ontario indigenous struggles (with a Six Nations organizer).
Anyone interested in anarchism and radical politics, or are just curious, should not miss this opportunity to learn more about it and meet others who want to fight for a new world.
Potential distributors: there is no tabling charge and there is still room available. Please contact us ASAP if you wish to table at the bookfair.
Admission is free or by donation (pay what you can) and child care is provided.
