Anarchist Bookfair Social

The ever intriguing Manchester and Salford Anarchist Bookfair returns to the People's History Museum tomorrow (10am-4pm) with another wild line up of stalls and talks to stimulate.

There's stalls from all the top anarchist outlets, including AK Press and the Anarchist Federation, and Anarchist Raccoon, which is exactly what you would expect it to be…bookmarks, stickers, postcards and other small items featuring original art and involving raccoons, which "provide an excellent non-human role model for living cooperatively while maintaining strong individual character". The raccoon items will be bartered with visitors or gifted. Great idea!

Meanwhile, the England's Forgotten Revolution stall will be pushing a booklet
"about the revolution in the 1640 and 50, Levellers, Diggers, Ranters but much much more, including the mutinies in the army, the first trade unions and the revolutionary uprising in London".

The International Brigade Memorial Trust will be selling literature and merchandise relating to those who went to defend the Spanish Republic from 1936 to 1939; while the Past Pixels stall will be selling a range of their brilliant greetings cards, postcards and posters using images from the history of the labour movement. There's a great poster of the Miners Strike that Past Pixels do, if it's there…

Other stalls include the ace Corporate Watch, Hunt Sabs, Bolton Diggers, Pumpkin Records and Red Pepper. There's the Tea Jamboree stall where you can be involved in a `playful tea experience…concoct a cuppa to suit your mood…and unleash your creativity'. And the Under The Pavement Radio Show will provide the soundtrack.

As well as the stalls, there's talks going off all day covering everything from the Beautiful Planet anarchist café, to the Zapatistas, to workplace struggles and `radical approaches to psychiatry and mental health in an age of austerity'. Too good to miss?

What is guaranteed is a day that will never be dull, full of new experiences and ideas. It's going to be rad…

And later on there's a social at The Crescent pub vault starring Salford Star faves Class Actions (with Andy Carrington) poet Andy T, Autonomads, Black Light Mutants and Makings of a Maniac.

What a cool event . An opportunity for people to understand the true nature of ' democracy ' and its inherent corruption .
