Dublin Anarchist Bookfair weekender - April 5,6 & 7th

category dublin | anti-capitalism | event notice author Friday April 05, 2013 10:50author by wsm Report this post to the editors

The Dublin anarchist bookfair returns to Liberty Hall on the 6th of April for our 8th annual edition, and the theme 1913-2013 - Rebuilding a Movement from Below. There will be a social in Seomra Spraoi on the 5th and a radical walking tour around Dublin on the 7th.

That theme couldn’t be more appropriate. Following on from the general spin being flahed about the media on the ‘good’ news that we’ve just accepted the debts of the casino speculating capitalist banks and firmly saddled them onto the Irish people for generations, we need to build a movement to put an end to such cosy practices where they take the profits, but we take the losses.

Among the other topics and themes that will be covered in Bookfair talks and discussions will be

* Anarchism and the City - anarchism in Barcelona in the lead-up to the 1936 Spanish revolution, with Chris Ealham (author of 'Anarchism and the City: Revolution and Counter-revolution in Barcelona, 1898–1937')

* Organising The Unorganised – some practical examples, which will look at the lessons to be learnt from two examples of union organising among ‘the unorganised’

* The Art of Resistance: Image-ing a new Middle East, which will explore the ways 'art as defiance' is re-imagining power across the Middle East

* Facing Deportations – a practical workshop; how we can organise to prevent deportations, which aims to share the direct practical actions that need to be done and to raise awareness, unveil truths and correct misconceptions surrounding the issue of asylum application and deportation

* Social history and social media, a discussion with history project Come Here To Me!

* Latin American Social Struggles against mining, a meeting at which two speakers - Milton Sánchez Cubas (President of the Celendin Interinstitutional Platform (PIC), a network of 40 grassroots organisations from Celendin Department of Cajamarca, Peru) and Aida Julieta Quinones Torres (a member of the Environmental Committee for the Defense of Life which monitors the socio-environmental impact of the La Colosa mine, in the department of Tolima, Colombia) – will look at the impact on their communities of exploitation by mega-extractive multinational corporation and how they organize to face this threat

* Queer Anarchism: Equality or Liberation?, a talk which will discuss emergent radical queer politics which resist assimilation and question the foundations of gender and sexual identity

As well as the meetings, this year’s Bookfair will, as in previous years, have book and information stalls from a host of anarchist and radical bookshops and campaigning organisations.

Friday night - Music and film

The weekend will kick off on the Friday night with a film showing and music session in Seomra Spraoi. Following the day of talks and bookstalls in Liberty Hall, Saturday night will have an opportunity to continue the discussion while enjoying some fine tunes at a Bookfair fundraiser in ‘The Pint’ (beside Liberty Hall). [Facebook event ]

Sunday afternoon

And on Sunday afternoon, the weekend’s activities will conclude with a walking tour entitled ‘Finance Under Foot’ on which Conor McCabe and Tom Murray will take participants through Ireland's most important sites of financial power, past and present. The idea behind the tour, according to the guides, “is to make the nature of organised money power accessible, understandable and even entertaining”. Given the way in which financial power has devastated all our lives in recent times, this tour should prove to be of great interest to those struggling against its daily effects.
