After too many years without such an event the centre of the Universe known as Toronto will be having an anarchist gathering/anarchist bookfair again this year. Here's the announcement.
Toronto Anarchist Gathering:
Saturday, April 4th
10-5pm, Steelworkers Hall (25 Cecil St.)
It’s time for us to gather. To meet up and to stare at each other. To bring together folks who secretly or not so secretly identify with anarchism. It will be a smorgasbord of anarchism-related groups and activities. It will be quick and dirty. And it's happening soon.
We need your help.
We’re writing to invite you to participate in a day of fun and anarchy at the Toronto Anarchist Gathering on April 4th. This will be a space for a wide variety of anarchist individuals, radical political groups, and anti-authoritarian organizations to come together, meet, greet, educate, skill-share, and hear about each other’s projects and plans.
Hopefully this will be an opportunity to educate some people about what anarchism is all about, to encourage people to get involved with some of the organizing and organizations that exist in Toronto, and to provide a space for already-established groups to hear about each other’s work.
There will be booktables, group tables, displays and workshops from 11-3. Then from 3-5 there will be a giant go-around so folks can hear what other people are up to.
Does your group want to have a table to sell literature, buttons, shirts, or whatever else? Send us an email at:
First come first served.
Do you want to put on a workshop? If so, bring a proposal to the workshop meeting on Tuesday march 24th at OISE (252 Bloor Street west) at 6pm. We’ll do as many workshops as we have space for, and go with the ones that are the most popular at that meeting.
If you want to help out in any other way, that’d be awesome. Give us a shout at
The Toronto Anarchist Gathering is open to anyone who shares our anti-oppressive perspective against classism, sexism, racism, ableism, colonialism, homophobia, and other hierarchical attitudes, practices and crap.
